Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Wired Mic 4.5 5 56 56
Decent Bluetooth I don't use microphone part. Have paid to Garmin GPS xm radio unit. Sound for sat radio could be more crisp. The fm radio comes through much better. July 27, 2015
Overall good product Product works as expected for the most part. In this model, FM comes equipped. With only limited use, I have noticed that FM reception can be an issue at times. At speed, it becomes more difficult to hear clearly when paired to other rider's devices and volume can be a problem if the helmet is not quiet. Overall, this seems to be a good value and has made my riding experience that much better. July 14, 2015
Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset I have had the Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset for three weeks and so far, it is great. Bought it mainly to receive phone calls while driving and everyone says sound clarity is excellent with very little wind noise. FM sound is a good at low speeds but seems to lose bass at higher road speeds when you need to crank up the volume. And it produces more than enough volume to let you make phone calls or listen to music at 75 mph without a fairing. I rated it "average" for ease-of-use because it is difficult to me remember the like 30 functions it can perform with two buttons... maybe after a few months I will learn! I have not tried the intercom yet but I liked this unit enough to buy two more (for my son and wife)! July 13, 2015
Solid product This is an older model that won't likely see many more updates, which is too bad because it's the only one to offer radio. The FM is nice to have but it would be great to have an AM option as well for traffic updates. Easy to install, use, and has a pretty good battery life. Purchased a 2nd for my girlfriend. June 22, 2015
Works Great I like this little thing haven't tried it fully yet on the road but I've tested it making calls and listening to music inside the house and it works fine. Gets pretty loud I only wish it had a little more bass with the music. Excited to test it out on the road. Other then the bass I would Deff recommend it. June 15, 2015
First bluetooth headset I ride mostly alone and wanted to be able to use my phone for calls and navigation and music. Researched the different brands and decided on the Sena SMH5-FM because it comes with the upgraded speakers and FM. Also with the updated firmware capabilities, it has all the features of the SMH10 except shorter range, 3 pairings instead of 4, and no multiple conferencing. I installed this in my Shoei GT-AIR in about 20 minutes. The speakers are mounted in the cut outs and there is no need for the pads to get them closer to my ears. The sound is excellent for voice and good but not great for music. The music is clear but could use some more bass like other reviewers have stated. The FM is a added bonus that I didn`t think I would use, but I find myself using it more and more. The SMH5`s profile is much smaller than the SMH10 which I think is a plus. This Sena does everything I need really well and looking forward to pairing up with one or two riders someday. Revzilla was super fast in shipping this out. Received it in 2 days and I earned some zilla cash too. Five stars for them. June 8, 2015
First Bluetooth My main use for the SMH-5 is for music and GPS, and it works great for both. The speakers are so so, at 80+ it has to be turned way up to the point its to loud for the drivers to handle. Rural roads and town driving they are just fine, no bass, but works really well. My only wish is that the jog button click was alot stiffer, its way to easy to click it while just trying to rotate it. My lid is a AGV Skyline June 3, 2015
First Helmet Bluetooth Since this was my first bluetooth device for a motorcycle helmet, I wasn't sure what to expect. Reviews seemed to be mixed. I'm happy to say that it's everything I hoped it would be. With only 2 buttons to use there's a lot to remember to use certain features. I'm sure over time it'll get easier. The sound isn't too bad. I usually ride around 70 on the freeway but have gotten up to around 80 just to test it and I could hear just fine. People can easily hear me at speed too. Speakers could use more BASS as others have written but otherwise a very nice product at a great price. May 18, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Corey R: I have a Sena 3s and it is a great little unit. I upgraded helmets and because the 3s has the bluetooth built into the speakers instead of a clip on unit, I found that the speakers were too thick for my new helmet (scorpion evo). The smh5 gets good reviews, and although the smh10 is probably a superior unit, I could not justify the difference in cost. No one else that I ride with uses similar units, so the intercom range is not a factor for me. Jul 26, 2015

E D: I wanted to be able to answer calls and listen to music/gps while on my daily commute. FM feature works great, pairs easily, great call clarity and decent volume. Apr 1, 2015
Boris C: Reasonable price for basic Bluetooth device. Looking to listen music during a long trip or whenever. This product also have very high recommendations from other buyers. Mar 18, 2015
Terry H: Looking for FM radio without wires. Have the SENA SMH10 units already but wanted to add FM. Even though this is s "5" unit and doesn't have some things the 10 has, I found the newer technology ( over my 2 year old 10's ) had improved the volume and sound quality quite a bit. So much so that I don't use the 10 for my helmet even though the new BMW has FM bluetooth built in. Battery life is a bit less than the 10, about 8 hours continuous riding at most. Jan 9, 2015
A L: good reviews Dec 14, 2014

Jin P: small, versatile, affordable, recommended by Anthony in video reviews, easy to use with gloves on Feb 10, 2014
Teri L: I bought this because it was inexpensive, very compact, seemed geared more for a solo rider over a group or passenger, and had many of the features the larger more expensive units (namely the FM).

Michael L: I don't believe this will work for your helmet as the mic is wired, so it needs somewhere to be mounted with double sided tape. I believe your helmet is open faced, which means there is nowhere to mount the mic. I believe they make a boom mic version, I would recommend going with that one instead. Apr 14, 2014

A shopper asked: I have in ear custom earbuds with a simple headphone jack. can they be used with any type of bluetooth device? Nov 25, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Doug S: As far as the SMH5-FM is concerned, I'm pretty sure that your ear buds with the standard jack will not work with it. The connector for the ear buds is completely different. For it to work with your ear buds you would have to wire your ear buds to the existing speaker wires that come with the device. One connector runs the devices microphone and their ear buds. I can tell you though that I have no problem hearing or communicating with my rider with their mic and speakers. I don't even notice the ear buds in my helmet. Nov 26, 2013

Yeo K: Hi there,
I bought this product this May and I use it on my Arai helemt, thereafter transfer to my new shoei helmet, both not necessary to modify to fit as the "clamp" for the headset is universal, only concern is to find a good spot to mount the clamp so as to prevent any wearing on the helmet pads.

I never use Scorpion helmet before and hope my experience can give you some pointer on this product.

One thing for sure is to check if there is any gap between your helmet shell & the cheek pads so that the clamp for the headset can slot in, elase you will need to use the double side tape to mount the headset holder on the helmet (both supplied with the set, but factory recommended to use the clamp).

Cheers, ride safe.

Allan K: I installed it in an exo 900 very easily. It's not stated whether the 700 has space for the speakers. Check that out. If it does then it is safe to assume that it is designed to accommodate a headset. Good luck! Oct 31, 2013

Barry P: Yes, it *is* possible. I've done it on my SMH5, and my SMH10. You can have one music source, and as long as the two Senas are paired, your pillion (or another rider, if close enough) can listen to the same music you are. Mar 23, 2015

Apr 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri L: I'm not sure if it will fit into the recess on the helmet, you may need to use the tape or clamp instead.

The unit comes with a USB power/data cable though I cannot remember if it came with the wall plug for the cable (any USB wall plug works).

Speakers are included and this unit (SMH5-FM) does have an FM Tuner so you can seek and program stations from the unit itself or preprogram them using the device manager available as a download from Sena.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew E: The speaks are between 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. I put mine behind the liner where the ear openings are in the padding of my helmet and I don't even know they are there. The speaker sound great but they don't have a lot of bass but over all they sound great. The FM radio works really good I even get radio reception in tunnels where my car will lose the signal. The voice commands work but it depends on what phone you have. I have an iPhone so they are standard Siri voice commands like you would use with any hands free device. Jan 13, 2015
Reply to Andrew Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
A S: Thank you for your help Jan 14, 2015
Andrew L: The voice prompts are what station you are on. I haven't really heard any other prompts than that. On, off,and low battery are beeps. If it's synced with the iPhone siri will chime in when you use her. The radio works great. It's difficult to program, particularly when riding. It's best if you plug it in the computer and program it that way. The speakers themselves are 40mm. They attach very nicely with Velcro to my helmet's inside. They don't move. Never gave an issue. Hope this helps. Jan 13, 2015

A shopper asked: Just got the SMH5-FM unit and mounted it to my Bell Vortex. Fits like a glove, and the sound is great. However, I'm having trouble with the voice commands.

A shopper asked: I am looking into buying it or the smh10. My question is does it have a headphone jack to plug in old I pods or mp3s with no bluetooth? The smh10 does but I like the smh5 because it is smaller. Apr 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff H: The SMH5-FM does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. I think what you are talking about will not work on the SMH10 either as the jack will be an output. You are looking for an input, so you will want to make sure that the SMH10 has a 3.5 mm input.

I bought the 5 for two reasons:

1. The upgraded the speakers in 2014
2. The FM tune

After using it a few times given the choice between a smaller and larger unit I would go with the larger one.

With that said I still like the unit.

Edwin B: I have the SMH5-FM and listen to the built in radio on my commute and it is loud enough to hear wearing earplugs, doing 80mph, on a noisy Ninja 250. Nov 13, 2014

A shopper asked: will the smh-5 pair with the smh-10 series Dec 26, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The SMH-5 will pair with the SMH-10 but keep in mind that the range/functionality will be limited by the less powerful device, which in this case is the SMH-5. Currently, all Sena products will work with other Sena products. Similarly, Cardo units will work with other Cardo units and so on. Each brand will work with other devices within their product line unless specifically noted otherwise. Additionally, you cannot mix and match different brands as they will not communicate with each other via the inter-comm function. Dec 28, 2012
