Firmware 4.0 Life Coach Feature
I recently upgraded to firmware 4.0 on my SMH10 Sena Bluetooth Headset wireless intercom and communicator before heading out on a long weekend ride. Just before leaving, I upgraded my SMH10 to the latest firmware. When I started it up, a lady with a British accent indicated that my 'Phone Connected'. That was nice. I like the new voice prompts and voice confirmations. This firmware has many features both documented and undocumented. Some of the undocumented features are presumptuous and controlling. For instance, after the first fuel stop, I engaged the voice activation feature and told my iPhone to 'Play Artist Avett Brothers'. Instead of doing what I asked and playing some awesome country/bluegrass folksy jams the British lady responded 'Calling Les Hardy'. At this point, it took a few moments to register what was happening so when the phone started ringing I frantically pushed all the buttons on the unit attached to my helmet but it kept ringing. I jumped off my bike and started ripping my gloves off as fast as I could and tearing at the zippers on my riding suit. My riding partner was looking at me with concern. He later noted that he thought that I might have a small fire inside my jacket or was possibly having a seizure. He didn't realize the awful truth, because only I could hear the ringing ringing ringing in my helmet as I was trying to get at my iPhone so I could pull it out of my jacket and throw it beyond the effective radius of Bluetooth technology. You see, Les Hardy is my Father In Law from my first marriage and I haven't spoken to him in 3 years. We were very close, but for reasons I can't go into here, both because they are boring and unrelated to motorcycle products, I had avoided calling. But, the Sena Bluetooth Life Coach feature in firmware version 4.0 had decided that enough was enough and that I was calling Les. I was unable to locate the iPhone in time in the many handy internal pockets of my riding jacket so I suddenly heard Les's voice in my helmet. As you all know, once something is in your helmet, you need to deal with it. I had a brief and awkward conversation, the first in 3 years. I'm not sure what I said because of the embarrassment, shame, guilt and adrenaline. But, now that I've talked to him, I might was well call him on purpose now. Anyway, the pseudo therapist hack British lady in the Sena Bluetooth SMH10 firmware 4.0 will decide what is best for you like she's your effing sister or something.

Bluetooth is great, audio quality not so much
The BlueTooth works well. Love having my music and voice navigation in my helmet.

Unfortunately, the speakers are absolutely awful. I wasn't aware that there were still speakers being made that sounded worse than AM radio. These things are seriously terrible.

I fully admit that I am an audio snob. I have a fantastic custom system of my own design in my car, as well as a full 5.1 home theater, so I love my quality audio. This is the furthest thing from it. It's convenient, sure, but don't buy this expecting even first gen iPod ear bud level of audio quality, because you will be disappointed.

Yes, I know I'm on a motorcycle, and shouldn't expect high fidelity because of the wind noise, but I don't buy that. I had decent sound in my convertible.

On a flat EQ, the audio is muddy and tinny. And if you turn up the unit to compensate for wind noise, the audio distorts.

The headset device is fairly easy to install, and if you have a Bell helmet compatible with it like I have, it's a bit of a cleaner install. But be aware that this standard package does not come with the correct mic and speaker setup to snap into the Bell. You have to buy that separately.

I also couldn't get the unit to work with SENA's USB tool for firmware upgrades. Windows 10 sees the device, but the USB tool never did. Great stuff.

There doesn't appear to be too many games in town doing BT headsets. I bought the SENA because it was highly recommended online, but apparently no one who reviews this is actually using it for music, just for communications with a passenger or another rider. I'm sure it sounds fine for voice comms, which I'll probably never use anyway, but you might want to look elsewhere if you just want convenient BlueTooth audio streaming to your helmet while riding.

Upgraded from the SMH-5
This is a great headset. Had the SMH-5 before, and then switched to the 10 so I could talk to more than one other person at a time. This headset sounds clear, is easy to use, is waterproof (have ridden in the rain plenty of times with it), and works great when riding in a group. Would definitely recommend!

Home Run
I have had several wireless and wired head sets and the Sena SR10 tops them all. Finally I can ride down the road and talk on the phone and people can understand me like I was right next door. Easy to pair, easy to install, able to update firmware, sound quality is excellent, great ergonomics.

Great headset for the money
I've been running one of these for 3 years now and just bought a second for my wife. Listening to music, taking phone calls, or just talking over bluetooth all work great. Holds a good charge and is only distorted when turned all the way up. Not a single issue out of mine

People can't even tell that I'm on my bike when talking to them!
I'll get straight to the points that most people want to know!

Pros:
With the windscreen adapter (which comes with the kit) and the foam over that and the mic, people on the other end of the line can't tell that I am on my bike (2000 HD Dyna Low Rider w/upgraded exhaust pipe) going 60+mph. This is what I am most impressed with!

Music/phone/conference audio level is all individualized and remembers the setting. So while your music may not be all the way up, you can have your phone and/or conference all the way up without having to continually adjust it when switching back to music

Audio level, as a whole, is pretty good. I can hear music pretty well at high speeds (60+mph) while wearing ear plugs. Lower speeds definitely have good sound, but there are some negative aspects which I cover in the "cons" list

Super easy installation! This is the first time I have ever installed a bluetooth unit and was able to do it in about 15-20 minutes. There are a ton of "how to" videos on the web, not to mention on RevZilla site

It states that you can charge this while using it on your bike. While I haven't had that opportunity yet, I do see myself utilizing this in the very near future and glad to have this ability!

It pairs very easily with my iPhone 6S+ and allows you to use the Siri function so I can make hands-free calls/texts

Has an auto-answer feature for incoming calls, where you just make any noise loud enough and the call will be picked up without you having to take your hands off the grips to press a button. Very nice feature!

Cons:
Battery life is decent, but not as long as I would prefer as I have a longer commute (90+miles) each day, so I end up recharging about every other day

While music volume tends to come through pretty well, the phone volume is not as high and I have found out that this is a common issue with a lot of riders. This may be just an issue with the pre-cut ear holes in my helmet not being at the correct spot for my ears, but I have found that when I'm at higher speeds, it is a challenge to hear people on the phone

Not very low profile, which may be an issue to some riders. While I would prefer something that was much more low profile, I don't mind it so much anymore. Comes down to just personal preference on this one.

Detaching the unit can be a pain as the clips are pretty solid and take some force to popping the unit out. This may break in a bit over time, but it would be nicer if it came off a little easier. Maybe they purposefully did that to ensure that the unit would accidentally detach while in mid ride!

Overall, I am really glad I bought this and would purchase it again and highly recommend it! It is a bit more expensive than other units, but after talking to many other riders, almost every single one recommended this due to its quality and durability. And I have to agree with them

Quality but be aware
I bought this product based on its endless recommendations and the fact its one of the best you can get. Price was average but it is an expensive head set. I'm sure the product itself is very durable and made to a high quality but mine has started to become less and less responsive. This isn't such an issue while I using it because I just play music. But turning the device on and off or using the call button is now pretty annoying. Be aware Revzilla wont provide a warranty and you'll just have to contact SENA. I doubt this will happen to many other people but all in all id chose this over most other products. the Jog dial is almost essential given we wear leather gloves.

Just Incredable
So I did win this from the vine contest. But I started using it as soon as I got it. I have never installed a Bluetooth for a helmet before but after watching the videos on the RevZilla site I had it on and ready to go in about 15 minutes. The unit feels light and gives me no resistance to the wind. The sound is just amazing. I made a phone call and they couldn't even tell I was riding and the clarity of their voice was great. The battery life is amazing and all in all I have already recommend this unit to 3 people I ride with and 5 others I don't. So if your looking for a Bluetooth that is affordable and just freaking awesome. Look no further you found your unit.

Best I've tried!
Background: I researched online and found reviews that recommended the SMH10 as the best available. I tried another brand (starts with "I") and was more impressed with the Sena.

It's mounted in my KBC Vulcan helmet. I have tried with and without earplugs.

Installation is SIMPLE and looks great! The SMH10 is ridiculously easy to use, even with gloves on. Competitors' models with small buttons are much more difficult and require more concentration.

I have had great luck with this unit. It's held its charge for over a week of commuting to work and back while listening to music and podcasts.

I love this thing for these reasons:

1. It's loud. With earplugs, it's OK - sometimes I can't hear my spoken podcasts, but they are recorded at a low level. Without earplugs, it's WAY too loud, especially on phone calls.
2. It's clear. My wife says she can hear some wind noise, but my voice is still very clear, even at 55MPH, talking normally.
3. It's upgradable. Firmware upgrades via USB on the computer are easy and a great feature. (No Mac support tho - boo!)
4. It's expandable. I am about to order the earbud option. I figure since I normally ride with earplugs, the earbuds might as well do double duty and give me some music.
5. It's well-designed. it looks great on my helmet, it installed easily and is simple to use, even with gloves on. I haven't tried it with winter gloves yet, but i'm confident it will work easily.

Downsides:
1. I'd like to be able to boost the volume a little more so I can hear some of my podcasts better. Not a design flaw, but it would be great if we had a little more volume to work with.
2. It's not fair to put this here, but... If the bass response were better, this would be a perfect product. However, with the laws of physics being what they are, that's mostly impossible with a 1.5-inch speaker! I believe the earbud option will fix this.

That's it! Best unit I've tried. I'm tremendously happy with it, and will be ordering another unit and a couple more mounting brackets so I can install these on all 4 of my family's helmets.

My second SENA 10 unit, still the most simple to use
I have had the SENA for a few years now. It is by far the best Bluetooth unit I have ever used. Got a new on for the wife. Very easy to pair. The Jog dial is best feature. It makes it use with winter gloved hand possible.
