Sena SMH10

I installed this on my Arai helmet. I first had installed on 1/2 helmet, but the wifey ordered the one that comes with two mic's. One for a full face and the other mic for a flip up. I am waiting for another cradle with fix mic. It was some what easy installation. I am not a patient person and more a visal hands on person. So with some trial and error got both my wife's my mine to work. Wife likes it a lot because she can listen to her music at her level. Only used them on one ride and we are pleased with them. I can talk to my wife, listen to my music, and get/talk on the phone if need. When using the GPS on the phone the directions come through the headset, so I like that, don't have to look at a GPS. For the money very good value. The only bad side is the speakers IMO don't have enough bass or volume. But then above a certain MPH who cares. Thought I would share this.

Re: Sena SMH10

I replaced the SENA headphones with excellent results"

You can try an inexpensive amplifier, like FiiO to increase the volume.

I use ear plugs and can still hear music at interstate speeds now.

Re: Sena SMH10

I did have a question? Do you or you all keep them on the charger all the time or take them off and then charge them when you need them?

John, I bring mine in every few days to get recharged, otherwise they stay on the helmets.

My helmets lives inside the house, and so I put the SENA on the charger after every rides, and then remove it to place back onto the helmet after it's fully recharged. It's just one of those routine thing that I get into.

Helmet sits on shelf in garage. After every use I charge sena insitu. Disconnect when fully charged. If several weeks between use,recharge before use.

Re: Sena SMH10

Another 180 mile lunch ride. Got two phone calls during the ride and answered both with no problem. They could hear me and knew I was on a motorcycle.
