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...

SMH5 Good Product
THE GOOD:
At highway speeds WITH earplugs in, the FM radio can be heard clearly although it's not very loud at maximum volume. Without earplugs, maximum volume is a bit too loud and you will need to turn it down so you can be aware of your surroundings.

Telephone sound quality is better than expected and clearly audible at highway speeds. Also, I am told that the sound of my voice on the other end is extremely clear at all speeds.

The buttons are big and easy to manipulate with thin/summer gloves.

Installation is straight forward and extra spacers are provided for helmets that have speaker recesses. This is to bring the speakers closer to your ear.

THE BAD
The mounting bracket did not fit on my helmet so I needed to use the adhesive mounting plate, and because of the shape, I had to put it farther back on the helmet than I wanted in order for it to fit flush.

The radio reception is not as strong as a car stereo but acceptable for the size of the unit.

It's complicated to use all the features because you are controlling several features with just two buttons. You will have to keep the instruction manual handy until you memorize all the different controls.

Not so easy to control when wearing thick winter gloves.

Summary:
Overall this is a good product, especially considering the price. It's nice not to be isolated while riding and to be able to handle work and personal calls while on the road. The radio feature is really nice to have for when traffic gets heavy. The Bluetooth connection is strong whether you keep your phone in a handlebar mount or deep inside your saddlebags or backpack.

Not sure how this compares to other units, but it's good enough that I'm not interested in trying any others. I'm going to get the speaker/mic kits for all my helmets and take this unit with me whenever I ride.

First bluetooth headset
I ride mostly alone and wanted to be able to use my phone for calls and navigation and music. Researched the different brands and decided on the Sena SMH5-FM because it comes with the upgraded speakers and FM. Also with the updated firmware capabilities, it has all the features of the SMH10 except shorter range, 3 pairings instead of 4, and no multiple conferencing. I installed this in my Shoei GT-AIR in about 20 minutes. The speakers are mounted in the cut outs and there is no need for the pads to get them closer to my ears. The sound is excellent for voice and good but not great for music. The music is clear but could use some more bass like other reviewers have stated. The FM is a added bonus that I didn`t think I would use, but I find myself using it more and more. The SMH5`s profile is much smaller than the SMH10 which I think is a plus. This Sena does everything I need really well and looking forward to pairing up with one or two riders someday.
Revzilla was super fast in shipping this out. Received it in 2 days and I earned some zilla cash too. Five stars for them.

Great Product; Auto GPS Warning
This is an absolutely great product. The rotary dial is great, the ability and flexibility to clip it to either of my helmets with minimal fuss is awesome, it looks great and having FM radio is awesome (since my mobile carrier isn't great and getting internet radio is more suspect than I like it to be).

I would only say that I wish it had a couple of more dedicated buttons (maybe one for the FM feature). Also, it would be nice if the device manager software was more like Garmins' device manager software (aka, more polished, more professional looking, can automatically detect devices, etc). It's weird that I need to tell it the model before it proceeds to identify it. But this is minor quibble.

Right now, I'm using it to pair my phone and to listen to FM radio. I'm currently working on a way to hear my auto GPS' audio (Garmin nuvi 2595LMT).

And that is the warning. The GPS feature on this headset will only work on those GPS that have the AD2P Bluetooth feature, which none of the current Garmin nuvi models have. The Bluetooth on the current Garmin nuvi models only has the HFP feature to pair it with a Bluetooth phone. Some older Garmin nuvi models (like the 765T) did have this AD2P feature and those will work. Otherwise, you have to get their terrible Zumo model for the Sena to pair with a GPS. I'm currently looking at a way to connect a BT AD2P adapter to the speaker wiring on my Garmin nuvi. Once I can get this to work, I will be a VERY happy camper.

BTW, I had purchased this before realizing it wouldn't pair with my GPS (my excitement over being able to hear my auto GPS blinded me). I just assumed that because it said it paired with Bluetooth, that this was all I needed to know. So I've learned that just because something says Bluetooth doesn't mean it will work (since there's also different versions of Bluetooth). It was a hard lesson learned. And RevZilla gave me incredible support when I told them of my story, which is something I've rarely seen anywhere else except mom & pop stores. So RevZilla will have a good portion of my business until they do something to make me change that (which I doubt).

Took A Spill...
...and the headset kept working. Went down and hit my helmet on the pavement, and I can see the mark on the jogwheel where the Sena impacted as well. No issues a week later, so I'll give it a thumb's up for durability.
Operation is pretty simple. I use it mainly for music, and bluetooth pairing w the iPhone 5s is a no-brainer. It's easy to switch to FM mode which is a big feature for me. I took a picture of the instructions so if I'm on the road and forget a function I can look at the image on my phone.

Loved the SMH5, the SMH5-FM is even better
I own the Sena SMH5; SMH10; and now the SMH5-FM.
The Sena SMH5, that I've had for a couple of years, has worked flawlessly. Battery power was never a problem (never ran out of juice, despite some 7 hour riding days). Sound (with the larger speakers) was very good (not quite Klipsch quality, but very good), and, once you got used to the controls, very easy to manipulate. It's been through rainstorms, gotten knocked around, and is often switched between helmets. No issues.
The SMH5-FM is *everything* the SMH5 is, but the addition of FM is fabulous. You wouldn't think the reception would be so good with no visible antenna, in such a small device. It's as good as I get in my cage...
If I ever want to v-log, I might consider the 20S and Prism, or 10C, but the SMH5-FM does everything I want right now, and does it very well...

Full features + low cost
I purchased the Sena SMH5-FM to replace a damaged boomless headset from another manufacturer. Typically I ride alone so I cannot comment on the intercom features occasionally I will take a phone call while riding (of course I pull over to the side ASAP until the call is finished and I can have 100% focus on the road again…) and the sound quality is good the party calling can understand me clearly.
I thought the FM would a nice addition because you can only listen to playlist so often. To that respect it is nice having FM but quality of the reception is lacking. I live in North Dallas TX where there are plenty of stations and few obstructions to signal, yet some stations will primarily only play through the left speaker the right side is almost muted. I would say 90% of the stations that I listen to have the issue of sound on one side. I did think at first that it must be my speaker placement but when I switch off FM and stream music from my phone it perfectly balanced. One other little issue with The FM is that when listening to that and using GPS from the phone there is enough of a delay when the device mutes the FM for the GPS instructions that you are only hearing the last word. That said I have learned it works best to only stream music from phone when using the GPS and listen to FM when GPS is not required.
Sound quality is quite good, the speakers are small and easy to place in the helmet without issues of ear contact. I usually wear attenuator ear plugs that block loud noises but allow normal volume sounds to pass and that works quite well with the headset.
The controls are easy to use and is why I decided to try the little Sena in the first place. I think the small jog wheel might be hard to use with thick gloves so if I didn’t live in TX I might consider the larger SMH10.

First time in-helmet headset user
New to sport-adventure riding, so I'm kitting up through Revzilla as my needs and budget allow. Realizing that I cannot hear navigation hints without a headset (or answer the phone or make calls), I visited Revzilla store and chatted with one of the sales staff. I opted for the SMH5. Straightforward install, but unlike the video, I ran the wires inside the padding, and simply placed the speakers on the surface of the pads that cover my ears--there is velcro on the back of the speakers for that purpose. I wear earplugs when riding, but can hear navigation suggestions pretty well. I can access Siri and receive calls, too. People are shocked that I'm riding a motorcycle at speed when they're talking to me, the audio filters are amazing. I don't routinely listen to music anyway (after the 28 dB noise reduction and fidelity attenuation of the foam ear plugs, I wonder why bother, right?), but have done so just for trying it. Simple and easy to activate buttons/interface, looks very robust. I like the mounted mic and boom options, and used the mounted one on the very front edge of my cheek pad. Thank you Revzilla for the assist and all the useful reviews.

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.

It works
I bought this primarily to utilize the radio feature, and it works great for that as I live close to a large city. The sound is a bit tinny but understandable. The buttons have a learning curve, but not too bad.

Not sure about the communication piece as I haven't used it
