Sena SMH5-FM Bluetooth Headset Wired Mic - Dual Pack 4.7 5 41 41
Great deal headset! The Sena SMH5-FM works great for me! The sound is a awesome at low speeds but gets a little tinny at higher speeds where you need to crank up the volume. But surprisingly, if you wear foam earplugs to quiet the wind noise, the sound from the speakers seems to improve. Seven to eight hours of phone calls, FM radio and listening to music from my GPS are the best I can get before Sena needs to be re-charged. And it seems to work very well paired with the BMW Navigator V. October 5, 2015
Probably the best value of all the Sena lineup Purchased the two-pack with wired microphones to install into my Scorpion EXO-500 and my girlfriend's Shoei Qwest helmets. Installation was generally easier on my Scorpion, but the Shoei wasn't bad, just had some extra trouble routing the wires cleanly. Units are very sturdy and are paired right out of the box. I immediately updated the firmware to the most recent (2.1.1 at this time), which was very easy to do. There's a lot of functionality of these units for having 2 'buttons' and a knob to handle, so there's a learning curve and you'll also likely forget how to do functions that you don't often use. To answer some common questions about these: You can only intercom one-on-one with one other person at a time, but can have 4 people total (including yourself) that you can 'jump' to an intercom conversation with. You can share music (streamed over a phone) to the person you're on the intercom call with, but cannot talk with that person at the same time as the music (more on this later). GPS commands from a phone (I have an Android device) will play through the speakers, but I'm fairly sure that it's only while you're streaming music from the phone. If you're sharing said music, then the GPS instructions get shared as well. Pros: The upgraded speakers on these are generally loud enough to hear, even with earplugs in, up to around 70mph. Installation was generally easy and offers good options to get the speakers nice and close to your ears. Buttons and knob are easy to find/operate even with gloves on. Waterproof. Offers good functionality for individual riders (phone calls, music streaming, FM radio, GPS instructions) Intercom functions very well within about 75 yards. After around 100 yards, it will drop out, but automatically reconnect when you're within range. Phone call quality is very clear. People generally can't tell that I'm riding a motorcycle at all and will ask me why I seem to be shouting. Battery life is generally good, probably around 10-12 hours of constant use. Units don't have to be removed from the helmet to be re-charged, which reduces wear on the headset connector. We almost never remove them from the helmets. Cons: Not as fully functional as the higher models, but for the money, you do get a lot. Re-charging is generally a bit slow (6-8 hours), but perfect if you do a day's ride and then charge overnight. Volume goes pretty loud, although it will distort fairly bad up at the top when the little speakers try and reproduce bass that they're not capable of. I solved this by downloading a free app on my Android device called 'Music Volume EQ" that I launch when I mount my phone to the bike. I created an equalizer profile that cuts out the bass and allows the speakers to play just as loud without distortion (I also boosted the very high-end to counter-act the high frequency absorption of my earplugs). The result is much better clarity without any tradeoff in volume. Something else cool about this is that since it's being done on the phone, if I'm sharing music with another rider, they experience the boost in quality as well. This leads me to the biggest problem we've had with these units so far, which is that the music-sharing function is somewhat spotty and will drop out fairly frequently. I've experimented and it has nothing to do with the sound equalizer and will do it whether I'm streaming music or playing an MP3 file from my phone.... nor is it specific to my phone. The two helmets, sitting 5 feet apart in my living room will experience an eventual lag and drop out of any shared music within about 15-30 minutes. It's not the end of the world, but on a longer ride, it's irritating to have to re-start the sharing function every 20 minutes, even if we're riding within arm's length of each other. If there's more distance between us, it's much more likely to drop out. Again, not a deal breaker at all, but annoying. Overall, we're quite happy with the purchase, and hopeful that maybe in upcoming firmware updates, the music drop-out will be improved. If you consistently have a pillion or a riding buddy, the intercom function alone is worth the dough. October 1, 2015
Very clear, very easy to use I have the Cardo Scala, The Sena SMH5 and 10. My favorite is the SMH5. It's about 75% of the size of the 10 and while not removable like the 10, it is still my favorite. Just as clear as the others and very easy to use. July 20, 2015
Works as advertised Not much to say about sena SMH5-FM set, except that it works well. Communication between sets is clear, pairing with Zumo 390 was easy, and GPS driving instructions are clearly heard. The FM works, but is of limited functionality. It gets good signal only close to big Cities, out in the country it is mostly only noise, and it interrupts the intercom, so we seldom use this function. June 6, 2015
Works well For reference, I have about 1,500 miles on this while wearing an Arai Vector 2 with NOJ Quite Rider skirt installed and am wearing earplugs. Also, I don't have a lot of wind protection from the front screen. Pros: - Installation was super easy. - When I use the Bluetooth connectivity for phone calls, everyone comments on how clear my voice comes through. - Just loud enough to use at reasonably highway speeds. Cons: - Keeps answering calls automatically, so I end up unexpectedly on the phone with people. I have changed some settings around, but it may be resetting itself when the battery dies. I am not sure. - Sound distortion at high volumes (less noticeable with earplugs in) Overall: I almost exclusively use the SMH5 for listing to Pandora off my phone while I commute, so I cannot comment on the intercom features. The volume taps out against the wind noise at highway speeds, but I don't feel like I would want to turn it up any louder for the sake of my hearing. My only complaint is that I cannot seem to get the thing to stop automatically answering phone calls. It may be my own fault. December 2, 2014
Wonderful addition to two-up riding. Have used the smh-5fm's for a full season now, including a 2000 miles tour of the NW and Glacier Park, and rain. Install: Dual pack, wired mic, installed into our Shoei RF1100's without problem. The Sena's double stick for the base unit is still holding well. No issues with the longish wires or connectors. Did use liquid tape to secure the wire bundle on the helmet exterior rubber base. 1st Use: On first power-up the two units always take a while to 'pair', which can get the newbie into a tail-chasing button pushing exercise. Now a non-issue, as we are used to the delay. Pairing with my Samsung S3 was easy. Daily: I ride with foam earplugs and the wife rides without and is hard of hearing. I set the volume to max, while hers is mid scale. The max setting results in a noticable hiss and some distortion from the speakers. With the earplugs I do not hear the hiss and we both hear the intercom and can communicate quite well. The VOX level sometimes hunts in quiet situations causing some clunking. Battery life exceeds an all day ride with the intercom always on. No noted degradation in intercom or battery performance in this 15k mile ride season. Phone usage has been great in cell rich environments. One button push and voice dial. Behind the FJR windscreen, communication was good to all legal speeds. On low or non-screened bikes, we were good to 60MPH before wind intrudes proportional to speed. Charging takes hours using our cell phone chargers. Value: Fantastic for two-up on bike communication. November 22, 2014
Great for phone and radio, okay for bike to bike. These work great for radio and phone features and would recommend if that is what you are looking for. They do not work for bike to bike that far apart, if riding in close packs ok, if using in a dual sport setting you will need ones that have more distance. Easy to operate and good battery life, leave plenty of time to charge or can use while charging. Overall better deal for price than others. September 22, 2014
Worked will on a week long trip. I used the wired mic unit on a "flip up" Helmet as I did not really want to have the mic on a stick. The supplied lead was long enough to do this and works reasonably well with a few bits of tape to keep the wire in place. The install is easy with the stick on tape but one did get knocked off and then the sticky was not quite as strong. Intercom function worked better than expected and was fairly simple to get going. The iphone hooked up too and was used twice on the trip. There is no group call feature so when a phone call comes on one unit the other unit does not hear it for this you need the SMH10. The radio works better than expected too and gets fairly good reception and the bigger speakers are probably better than the smaller ones. I like the radio for solo trips. September 8, 2014

Luis Miguel T: Price and functionalities, having built-in fm radio is a pretty nice option. Sep 1, 2014
Dwight M: The low cost and has all the features I need to talk with my passenger, make phone calls, and listen to the radio. Jun 18, 2014
Jason L: Great review on WebBikeWorld, as well as at RevZilla site, and seems like tremendous value. With the summer riding season upon us, and these communicators so inexpensive, why would you pass up the ability to talk with your riding companions? Jun 9, 2014
Brett K: The Sena SMH5-FM is a quality name brand system. I choose this the SMH5-FM because it costs less then many other helmet communicators and it has more features that I will actually use. FM is nice, the 7 hour battery life is plenty for me, along with the range. I also like that the FM version comes with the upgraded speakers.

Thanks Revzilla, I look forward to purchasing from you again!

Frank M: Seemed the best bang for the buck blue tooth with great reviews. Can't wait to try it out! May 1, 2014
Kevin M: Positive reviews and great price at Revzilla Apr 29, 2014
Michael S: A couple of reasons:
1. Based on reading reviews, the FM version apparently includes the bigger speakers that would cost around $22.50 additional per pair ($45 for both sets). So for about $20 more for the FM version, you get the bigger speakers and FM radio...
2. Was looking to get the SMH20, they are not available yet and want to go riding with my son, and these look like they would be good enough for now and much less expensive. May sell these in the future and upgrade, we'll see...

Adam W: You can if you crack the case. I think it uses small star drive screws. You'll need to source a specific battery, maybe a cordless phone replacement might work. Just be super careful. The traces for the USB power connector are very delicate and can be damaged during disassembly, which I believe also voids the warranty which is excellent. Mar 6, 2014

A shopper asked: I have KBC full-face helmets and I am curious as to how the Sena SMH5 components would be attached. Obviously, the speakers and mic would be located inside the helmets but what about the bluetooth unit? Is it inside or outside of the helmet? If it is on the inside, how does one control it? If it is on the outside, that is the best way to mount it? Jul 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Harley A: It mounts on the outside of your helmet. The kit includes everything you need. There's two options, a clamp that's a little less permanent or an adhesive mounting. I ended up switching to the adhesive mounting since it felt less bulky and allowed me to mount it more precisely where I wanted it but both work fine. Jul 27, 2014

Timothy L: It is on the outside, it mounts on the left side of the helmet. It comes with two screws that compress a plate that is on the inside of the helmet shell, like a vice or a clamp. It is very easy to install and works great. Good instructions and everything you need is included. Jul 27, 2014

Russell R asked: I would like to use this system plugged into the motorcycle battery while I am riding because I will be on a camping motorcycle trip without any power source to recharge the unit. Does this come with connector cables or could I buy such cables? Jan 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alan H: It charges the same way as your cell phone - via micro USB. Your best bet would be to install a simple cigarette lighter type electrical socket on your bike and use a car cell phone charger. I would set it up so that it charges even when your bike power is off so you could charge during breaks. The battery on the Sena lasts a long time and charges quickly. I don't think it will operate while plugged in to a power source. I wouldn't want to deal with the cable personally. The long battery life makes it so you don't have to. Jan 15, 2014
Reply to Alan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Russell R: I did not really want to drive with a cable but I thought that it would charge while in use or at least turned on. If it charges as quickly as you say then that's the answer. After your reply I went searching for a power source I could connect to a live wire from the battery and think I found something that would work from amazon, usb connector to a power reducer. Jan 15, 2014
Nicholas B: The units come with a USB type charge cord. I would recommend simply plugging the unit into a powerport on the bike that is wired to the bike's battery - such as a Powerlet product. I personally wouldn't recommend riding with these units plugged into the bike. My wife and I can get a few days riding in before needing to recharge, and that only takes about 2hrs. (On home power outlet.)

Once charged, they last for HOURS....

Hope this helps!

Scott A: The units charge through a standard mini-usb interface. I believe it did come with 1 cable. Any power solution that's USB friendly should do the trick.
BTW...I love these units...it could be just a smidgen louder at 75mph with earplugs in, but it's still ok. Battery life is quite good, phone call quality is astounding...I've made calls at 70mph and they had no idea I was on a bike.

Alan H: I have only used this for passenger communication. It works incredibly well in that respect. These seem to be the best bang for the buck of any system by far. If you are looking for rider to rider range consider the smh10. There are dozens of rider forums that cover these products. I would try BMW forum or any sport tourer forum. Apr 18, 2015

Mikael V: in my experience, if no obstructions and flat terrain, you get about 100 - 150 yds. really drops in hilly / twisty terrain. my main use is for listening to music, which it is excellent. bike to bike on the freeway runs it works bike to bike, but I don't like being bugged much, so I turn this function off most of the time.

A shopper asked: This unit show it comes with the upgraded speakers so it is the one I want although it is listed as wired mic and I need the boom mic. The pics here on Revzilla show both. Does it come with both the boom mic and the wired mic? Other wise It looks like I need to order the standard SMH5 and then order the upgraded speakers separately. Sep 2, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael S: There are two different versions, one has boom mike and the other has wired mike. I have a full face, so I ordered the wired mike version SMH5D-FM (less expensive also). As for the upgraded speakers, they are indeed included in the FM version (not the standard version). I found this by another reviewer on another site who purchased the upgraded speakers after he bought the FM version:

"I purchased the SMH5-FM which after ordering I found the sound quality lacking, so I figured I'd get these. Well, once I received them I discovered the SMH5-FM already comes with these "upgraded" speakers. They were the same ones it came with originally! I cannot imagine how crappy the smaller versions must be. I guess the sound quality is as good as it's going to get"

Alexander K: We use ours with our cell phones but it should connect to any Bluetooth capable device just fine. When using multiple functions the devices will intelligently select priority based on predetermined values. Like, a phone call will take precedence over the FM radio or streaming music from an MP3.

BTW, we love ours. Durable, great battery, great features.

Rainier M: You only need a bluetooth capable phone if you want to make calls, use gps? Etc. Without a phone you can link it to other users that have bluetooth capability to speak through intercom with new the firmware update that just came out. Fm radio works without phone also.

Michael P: As far as the unit to unit communication they function as is. The phone and GPS use is optional. I don't know about the use of the radar detector. You may need to contact the manufacturer. I like the device. It works good. Apr 17, 2014

A shopper asked: Would this product, with wired mic, work on modular helmets with the mic mounted on front edge of cheek pad? Would this location not directly in front of my mouth still have clear pickup? Don't want to use boom mic on my modular helmet. Thank you! Oct 24, 2013

Anthony R: Def think it would work fine with a modular even if the mic is off center. I have a full face AGV that's excessively loud even at lower speeds and callers tell me that they can't tell I'm on a bike. My voice comes through loud and clear.

Alexander K: I doubt it. These are great headsets , but I think asking the mic to work around the corner from your mouth may be a bit much. I would suggest a traditional placement and let the chord have enough slack to flip up or detach from Velcro for flip up. Oct 24, 2013

Adam W: To the best of my knowledge, you can have multiple units paired (4) but communication is 1 to 1 only. You use the dial button to select the person you want to converse with, then the unit opens the channel. To have 3 or more people talk in a group situation, you'll want to go with the smh-10 .

A shopper asked: Hi,

I bought the dual-pack, very good product!

However I want as my wife can not stand headphones, due to the high thickness become uncomfortable and painful after a few hours.

Is there any option thinner headphones?

Thanks in advance.

Mikael V: I am not sure I understand your question. I use the speakers that came with the system, not headphones. The speakers are installed inside the helmet. When installing my speakers, I cut out the foam so that the speakers would sit flush in the foam and not protrude. I hope this helps. May 7, 2014
