Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Wired Mic 4.5 5 26 26
Okay so far I bought this to listen to the radio on my way to and from work. So far the FM radio is hit and miss. Streaming from my iPhone 5 works without a problem. The install was easy once I figured out that I could not use the clip and had to use the stick on (Schuberth C3). The controls are hard to learn but once you do easy to use with gloves on. April 10, 2014
So far so good... I ride a Honda VFR800 with a Shoei RF-1100 helmet. For the price, I'm very impressed. I have the device paired with my iphone 5s. Phone calls sound good. When I'm going 75MPH plus, I'm told that it sounds like I'm talking on a bad car Bluetooth mic, but it's still totally usable. I'm not going to be carrying on extended conversations at over 75MPH anyway. Below 75MPH, people make the comment "I can't even tell you are on the bike". For music, it works fine. Like everyone else has mentioned, not a lot of bass, but it's fine. It's way better than no music at all. I did use the speaker pads to get the speakers right up to my ears. I'm very impressed with the functionality of the product. It can do a lot for a low price device. I would recommend getting really familiar with the controls before you go on the road with it. My wife looked at me kind of funny, but every night for a week I sat on the couch with my helmet on learning the controls... April 7, 2014
Works as advertised. Everything works per specs. Only disappointment is programming FM stations via computer requires a PC system, but as I wrote, works per specs. The only wish I had was the speakers could be a bit louder, but I can still hear them without difficulty, even with earplugs. I bought them for mostly music, and it pairs no problem, and it recognizes voice commands to play music list without failure. As far as phone calls, my wife can't tell the difference between an ordinary iPhone call and one via the Sena. March 31, 2014
The best answer for those wanting FM radio and no wires! I have the SMH 10 and then my Son bought the SMH 5. These were the first communication devices I had found that had good volume and helmet speakers that were at least acceptable. I bought the SMH 5 FM because I wanted FM stereo. Bluetooth from the Zumo was not stereo and in fact XM had to be hard wired to the SMH 10. FM reception is quite good and the sound quality is better than expected. Very easy to use the FM and change/seek stations. Rather surprised at how easy that is. But, there are two negatives. I don't believe the battery life is as long as the SMH 10 and for sure the range it has for bluetooth to the other Sena is MUCH less than the SMH 10. Both noted in the product description by Sena. I don't use the SMH 10 any longer and would highly recommend the new SMH 5 FM. March 24, 2014
Excellent Bluetooth system I installed it in about 30 minutes. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The hardest part was finding the exact spot for the speakers to be perfectly lined up with my ears because my helmet has big ear openings. I charged it, used it, and absolutely love the set up. At 80 on the freeway I could talk, be heard clearly, and hear clearly. I had to turn the volume down on my music because it was so loud! I took calls easily and listened to music all while riding around in LA. I highly recommend this product. March 11, 2014
Good Bluetooth for the Buck Bought this to install on an Icon Airmada helmet. Despite the high noise level of the Airmada, the Sena sounds great on both ends of a phone call. Easy to install on the helmet. Easy to update firmware with it hooked up to my computer. My only complaint is that the jog-dial button press is way too sensitive. It will barely brush up against something and try to turn the intercom on. Not a huge issue though. February 23, 2014
Sounds a bit trebly but awesome in every other way I went with the FM version because it's nice to be able to listen to traffic radio or sports, or scan for stations when I ride into a different city. I installed it in a Bell Vortex helmet, which I wish had removable neck roll so I can make the wires completely disappear... the SMH5-FM is otherwise almost flawless. Only 2 gripes: excess treble, distortion at 9/10 volume. When playing music, treble was easily addressed by adjusting my iPhone EQ to "treble reducer" - for calls, it helps to clarify the other person's voice when I'm on highways. As for distortion, not an issue because I don't think I would play it past 7/10 volume, it's plenty loud. Good things: plenty loud (goes well with frequency-neutral earplugs), reliable, easy to operate with gloved fingers, low-profile, costs no more than a Jawbone bluetooth thingy. Battery life is more than I need for any run. Pairing with iPhone 5s was easy and quick. February 11, 2014
Listen to music while you ride Great unit even though this is my first of this kind. Noise cancellation is excellent. Speakers are loud enough to be heard with earplugs on and freeway speeds and your other party's end is still clear enough to hear you. This unit was installed in a shoei rf-1000. I had to cut out the plastic area where your ear may be positioned and remove some styrofoam from the helmet to make this unit fit. Great item and great price. January 13, 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

Josh M: I dont see why not. It has two helmet attachments. 1. goes between cheek pad and outside of helmet and is uses screws to hold it in place 2nd attachment uses double sided tape to place it where ever you want it. Apr 14, 2014

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

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.

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
