Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Boom Mic 4.9 5 17 17
An excellent enhancement to motorcycle riding I purchased this device for my girlfriend and installed it on her modular helmet. I had already purchased a DUAL pair for myself for half helmets, and the adapter kit to install on my modular helmets (for rainy days)..... The sound clarity is incredibly good. Very little road/wind noise from the open face units. The FM radio option is wonderful as not all bikes have radio.... Product took a little patience to install, and download the manufacturer's manual. When you have done one, you can do the others in a matter of 15 minutes each.... The biggest downfall is having to pair them to each other (not the dual packed ones but rather others) each time you turn them on..... and the 400m to 500m separation for communication is pushing it..... but if you remain within a few hundred yards of each other you are good to go. All in - an excellent purchase. April 14, 2014
Excellent radio, easy controls once you get used to them. Audio sound is much clearer than my old Scala product, and the controls are easier to use. April 7, 2014
easy install, and in use ! Recommended by a friend. I was a sceptic about needing my bluetooth; but it was too easy to install and set-up ! Well, once underway and riding, audio quality was excellent ! and no issues from the other end of the phone call. Boy was I surprised ! Also good to hear saved Music on my phone. I am now a happy Bluetooth-rider-user ! February 17, 2014
Brought one for the wife I have one currently and wanted one for passenger . I use the fm to listen to xm onyx radio . works well but have to find the right channel. January 6, 2014
Unbelievable clear sound am recommending buying this product , you will not regret , very clear sound as if i am talking in a closed room , the other side didn't here any noise. also it is easy to use , & having FM Radio is another great feature. December 25, 2013
Excellent I bought this item for my helmet trying to be communicated during my ride, it's awesome... to many features: radio, hands free, audio streaming, etc. excellent product... Yes I recommend this awesome item December 16, 2013
Buy it! I couldn't seem to settle on a bluetooth until I saw this one. I don't really have anyone to talk to, so I'm just using it to listen to my phone for music and navigation. Once I saw the FM feature, I jumped on this one and I don't regret it. I've never used the intercom, but the bluetooth interaction with my iphone 4s is great! The speakers could be louder, but they probably shouldn't! The set was easy to install and set up. I stressed about the installation and setup longer than it took to actually do it! December 11, 2013
Best Bluetooth Headset with FM This is absolutely the best BT headset I've ever used. It does everything you need from a BT headset and it even has an FM radio. I'm a commuting rider so the FM is priceless, you can download the free software form the SENA website and it's really simple to use. The software lets you change the voice language, update the firmware, change a few settings and you can enter up to 10 FM frequencies and save them all at once. This way you can avoid manually scanning for stations and storing them one at the time. FM reception is clear and the radio is easy to use. The Jog Dial is another great feature because it's wide enough to handle it with gloves on. The SMH5 lets you pair up to three SENA headsets and you can talk to one rider at the time but other may call via intercom while you're speaking to someone else so the headset makes a signal telling the rider someone's trying to communicate. Installation is easy, it does come with everything you need to do it. It does come with upgraded speakers, so the sound clarity is very good. It also controls music stored in the phone. I would recommend this headset for the every day commuter or riders who don't really want to talk to a large group at the same time. If you're one of the previous, don't waste extra money on the SMH10. Being able to listen to radio or music while riding is really awesome. October 25, 2013

Jose V: I believe that it is. My helmet has an interesting cut and sena gives you the choice of mounting with a double sided tape to mount any where on your helmet or you can use the clamp and attach it on the left rim of the helmet. I called Revzilla and they tried it out out on my helmet first then called me back. I hope this helps. I love this product. Very easy to use and the sound quality is excellent up to 75 with open face helmet and more with closed helmet. Jan 29, 2014

Michael S: I would say if you are using a full face helmet or the full face wich opens like got I would go with mic that as no arm on it just. The round one that sticks on it works great even with the flip up full face the with the arm would work for open face helmet. Btu the way it's a great unit I love if long battery Jan 30, 2014

Benjamin Groves J: It seems pretty universal, tough to answer the question without knowing the exact helmet you're planning to put it on. I have it mounted on an open face 3/4 helmet and a full face helmet and both were easy to mount the Sena to. Feb 1, 2014
Patrick K: Yes . the one with the boom mic should fit and 3/4 or flip up those are the two I use .I'm sure that revzilla staff can help too- I think a different mic is used for full face - not sure on 1/2 helmet Jan 29, 2014

How many hours will the battery play the FM radio continuously?

ROBERT W: I have not played the radio continuously. However I have played the radio, & listened to iTunes on my phone (bluetooth), and had some intercom conversations with another rider for 6 hours without turning it off. Not sure how long the battery will last past that. So far I am happy with the Sena. I hope this helps you with your decision.

Kenneth K: Thanx for the info. Jan 13, 2014
Dave B: I did a 4500 mile trip shortly after purchasing the SMH5-fm, so I had a good chance to test it. I had just replaced my helmet and left my original SMH10 on the old helmet. That was a choice that I somewhat regretted on my long trip. I can't answer the radio battery life question as I normally would use it for streaming audio from my iPhone. That battery life was typically 6-7 hours. My SMH-10 would routinely go 10-12 hours.

It'a a smaller unit, which is nice, however it comes at the expense of battery life. If I had to do it again, I would have bought another SMH10. Both units are outstanding, as long as you use them for their intended purpose.

DIEGO ALEJANDRO J: Hi, Kenneth I used many times the Bluetooth overall with the other functions, like a phone calls, intercomunications with passanger, phone music and FM stations, the total of hours before shutdown is close to 8 hours.

I never used the Bluetooth only in the FM aplication.

I liked this SMH5-FM.

A shopper asked: Hi everybody. Could I please get some feedback on how well this setup works for hearing blue tooth turn by turn GPS voice navigation thru the speakers?

I?m looking for a bluetooth set up for really long distance sport touring (450 + miles per day for 2 to 3 weeks straight). I have an iPhone 4S, a 2004 Suzuki Hayabusa, and a 2010 Shoei RF100 full face helmet. I usually ride solo and stay with in reasonable speed limits. I need a set up that will work with one of the following iPhone iOS7 GPS apps: Google Maps, Tom-Tom, or MapQuest. I plan on downloading maps onto my iPhone and using the blue tooth speakers to get voice turn by turn directions as I am notorious for getting lost the first time I go anywhere. The speaker quality & compatibility with iPhone 4S is super super important to me. I will probably stream music from my iPhone while on the open road but really need voice directions the most.

Thanks for the help!
