Ear bud and wired mic - great fit and sound
Overall, very happy with the swap from the standard Sena mic and speakers to the earbud and wired mic setup. The noise blocking characteristics of earbuds (I use Shure e3c buds) makes them a much better choice for communication and music listening at higher speeds. Install is easy with both. I use the wired mic because it uses less space than the standard and has no loss of sound quality. For music listening, if fidelity matters to you, the Sena speakers are unsatisfactory.

My only concern with this mount is the durability of the stem into which the earbuds plug. It extends about an inch and shows signs of loosening after a few weeks use. I'm a daily commuter so time will tell how it holds up. It is placed in such a way that when the helmet is put down, some weight rests against it.

Pros and Cons
I bought this because while the standard SMH-10 speakers aren't bad for phone calls, the quality and volume are insufficient for music.

It does what it says it does, it allows you to plug in headphones into the bluetooth, and in that regard it works well. There are however four issues, one major, that I encountered already on the first ride.

1. Switching SMH-10 bases I also decided to use the smaller button sized microphone rather than the standard boom mic. Its nice not having the boom on a full face helmet, but according to those that I've talked to on the phone, while they can still hear me fine, they can tell that I'm moving with some wind noise, vs the standard SMH-10 boom mic where they never knew I was riding. Not sure the difference. This base also came with a boom mic, so I still need to try that one to see if it makes a difference.

2. Having the sound in headphones means that you can easily understand phone calls and music. The downside is that the quality of the audio sounds very compressed as compared to being plugged directly into the iPhone or standard bluetooth headphones. There is crackliness in the peaks, especially spoken podcasts and such. It's not a deal breaker given the freedom it offers, but it is a little annoying.

3. The third problem is the worst. The connector for the headphones is not robust at all. The plastic part around the headphone cable that keeps it sticking out straight and keeps pressure off the actual cable ripped in the first or second ride. So now the connector hangs down. It still works fine, but I imagine it's only a matter of time before it rips the cable itself. This is the biggest problem. I'll probably look to see if I can get it replaced under warranty, but I'm sure it'll just happen again.

4. Their is no base option to have both the speakers and the headphones if needed. Which is a little annoying as sometimes I won't wear my earpieces if I'm just driving a short distance or no highway, but that just renders the bluetooth useless as it has no speakers without the headphones.

I still recommend this product thus far as it's a great feature for the SMH-10 that other bluetooth units are lacking, but I do have serious issues with regards to the build quality of this base plate.

Sena SMH-10 Helmet Clamp Kit Earbud Connector Design Flaw
The earbud connector problem has plagued the SMH10 mount since it was released. Originally the connector was a solid piece that was prone to break where it attached to the mount, and my first one lasted about a year if I remember correctly. Then about a year and a half ago Sena changed the design such that the connector is now flexible, but unfortunately it's not rigid enough and the internal wiring breaks and you lose audio to one channel or often both channels. Over the past year and a half I've gone through five of these mounts at a failure rate of 100%. Sure, Sena will replace them as they have a two year warranty, but the RMA process takes a week or so and be sure to keep your receipt as they will request it. And pack an extra one if going on a long trip as insurance, especially if you require music/GPS when on riding trips. It sure would be nice if Sena would re-design the mount so that it was more reliable.

Problem Solved
Been using the SMH-10 for some years now on modular helmet. This set up solves the problem with the boom mic eventually breaking with daily use. The standard 3mm jack for speakers allows you to use ear buds or speakers.

Great product. Loud enough for me (half deaf).
I'm hard of hearing and find this communicator loud enough to be uncomfortable, that's loud. Easy to use. Great product. Only gripe is range is no where near claimed distance but sufficient at about 100 yards.

A needed accessory
I guess this is a problem I have with Sena. If you can't use the "stock" connection you have to pay $30 to get the one you do need. It would be better to offer different combinations or to sell the Sena unit without a helmet connection and have everyone buy what they needed.

Other than that, it's a great product.

SMH-10 Helmet communications
After numerous hours of research and testing, SENA makes a quality and great sounding communication system. I had to replace the boom as the microphone wires broke. With any High-fidelity equipment, you need to be careful with it. I was rough with the boom, moving it up and out of the way, smashing in my modular helmet etc. When the boom mic went bad, I shopped around and Revzilla had the best price by far. You will not be disappointed in the SMH-10 system or Revzilla prices. If you find a better price, tell Revzilla, they will hook you up.

Allows earbud usage
Replacement for my first one that had a wire break in the earphone pigtail. Mount works great. Hope this second one lasts more than the 9 months the first one did.

Best accessory for the SMH-10
I really like this better than the permanent mic, because I use the SMH-10 mostly for music. There is more room in the helmet due to the mic being detachable and the clamp itself is cleaner (no boom attached).

Works great, just like the other clamp kits. Just don't over-tighten the screws, you might get intermittent speaker functions. CS@ Revzilla told me it was the plate deforming and they are right. Hand tight people! Overall, I really like the total kit. No worries about skipping/changing volume while riding in the rain and soaking my phone! Sweet

Great support for ear-plug based headphones.
Sena is just about the only company that realizes that many motorcyclists prefer to wear earplug-based headphones when riding. I care about my hearing and I care about sound quality. I use a pair of Shure E3C with my MP3 player until recently. When it came time to buy an intercom system, this kit swayed me to the Sena SMH-10 units.

This thing is trivial to install. I am using it with a Nolan N102 flip-face helmet. I opted for the wired (not boom) mike and it works great. The sound with my Shures is wonderful.

My only complaint is that it would be great if they offered the unit with the normal in-helmet speakers, and put the miniplug on them so I could opt to use the helmet speakers for short trips.

The female plug for the headphones sticks out from the back of the unit, seems like something the could have designed better, but I haven't had any problems with it.

If you want to use the boom mike only, you can get the SMH-A0303 instead (show in related products below). This is more solid than the boom-mike/sticky mount for this SMH-A0304.
