Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset - Wired Mic 4.5 5 35 35
Great for flip up helmets I have a flip up helmet and did not like having to navigate around the boom mike on other units. The basic mike on sena can be place along the side of the helmet away from the hinged front and still has great pickup. I can easily make calls from my phone and the other functions are great. August 6, 2014
Excellent Product All features are good except the following: Not much bass sound option from the headphones The wires from the bluetooth to the headphones are not enough lenghty. It fits properly but with some adjustment. The manufacturer should increase the length so that it can be installed easily. Atleast 3-5 inches of length should be increased. August 1, 2014
Great product using 2 Sena5fm: Intercom, music sharing etc.. Works just great. July 22, 2014
Recommend this for any trip! My first sena. Easy to install and set up. Connected it to 2 other sena units. I wish it had a little more range Talking onit at high speeds and wind is not good but what would u expect at 80-100 mph. At 55 and under it's good especially with a windshield on the motorcycle. June 30, 2014
Surprisingly good audio and call quality! This is the first bluetooth headset for motorcycling I've purchased and I found it very easy to install and learn how to use. I was really impressed when my girlfriend said she couldn't tell I was riding when I called her. I read some reviews online that said that the speakers were too soft but I can hear everything just fine and I have never had to crank them up to full volume. June 10, 2014
Very good bluetooth headset This unit is a replacement for a different Bluetooth headset I bought quite a few years ago. It takes a little while to learn all the controls, but it is not overly complicated. The sound quality is better than my previous headset, but with any of these headsets the bass is a little lacking. Not a problem though as headsets are just a method of listening to your tunes while out on the road. It certainly is loud enough to overcome any road/wind/engine noise. The only complaint is that the radio reception is weak, but being that there is no antenna that is to be expected. June 3, 2014
I'm glad I went with the fm version This being my first bluetooth, I'm glad I chose the fm version. I had been using a wired setup and my playlist was getting a bit tired on my hour commute. The fm reception is almost as good as in a car. Stations fade a little sooner but not by much. The sound quality is decent, even with the speakers mounted behind the helmet liner. The controls are easy to use even with gloves. Learning the steps is a little confusing at first since you only have 2 buttons for all the functions. The first day I kept turning it off instead of changing stations. As far as phone calls, you can hear clearly and was told there was zero background noise even at 60mph. In summary I'm very happy with the smh5-fm and would definitely recommend it. May 26, 2014
Great for FM Radio while you Ride Works good FM reception in Houston TX is great no static. Only thing that could be better is better quality speakers. Over all works great and I enjoy my music. Also works great with my Samsung GS5 Blue Tooth. May 12, 2014

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

Sam S: I use mine in an EXO-750 without major problems. The speakers sometimes fold my ears over when I put the helmet on, so I have to stick a finger up there and fix it. Not a big deal to me. Apr 25, 2014

A shopper asked: I have a HJC max bluetooth ready helmet, will this device fit?
before i order the product it comes with speakers and charger?
and has fm stations?
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.

Sam S: I can't say for sure about the helmet, but yes it comes with speakers which just stick to the fabric helmet liner like velcro. It charges with a standard micro USB cable, the same as every non-iPhone cell phone. Yes it receives FM radio stations just fine, I set the presets using the computer software rather than the special combo of button presses to do it with the headset. Apr 25, 2014

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
