Great product, easy to use and set up. Be careful, there are two different types. One, the microphone is connected to the unit by wires, probably best for full coverage helmets. The other has a boom mic connected to the unit which would be best for 3/4 or half helmets. I ordered the wired version and had to use Velcro to connect the mic to the helmet. The other product would have been better. All in all, it still works good, just that the microphone set up is a little fragile.

Terrible communications system. Constantly drops calls, then won't disconnect calls and drops intercom connection with my wife's helmet (same system). Difficult to operate while wearing gloves. Cannot be updated with iMac. Finally, much too expensive for what it does. Like the title says; I should have stayed with Sena!

My friend and I do at least one long distance trip a year, and I've been looking for audio system for quite some time, but didn't want to pay the $300-400 to get one and have to hard wire it in. This unit does exactly what is says it does! Sound quality is not perfect, as you can't get any base from a speaker so small it can fit in your helmet ear pockets. But it's clear and you can easily hear even at highway speeds;even better than with ear buds. Since there are only two buttons for all the functions, it takes a little to get used to remembering the sequence for making a call. But the sound quality for the call is perfect, no one can tell I'm on my bike; except for the fact the hands free device in my truck sucks so bad, they want me to wear the helmet when I'm driving it! If you're looking for bike communications, get this and save the $250. I have a Verizon droid smart phone and I use it for music, directions from the in phone GPS, and take and receive calls, all at the same time. All with Bluetooth, so there are no wires. I'm going to remote a 12v receptacle into my tank bag so the phone keeps charged. Just shut up and spend the $95, you won't be sorry!!

Volume could be a "Touch" louder, but all in all very pleased, and super easy install!!!

This was my 3rd SMH5 Helmet Kit. I bought the 1st two in 2013, one for me and one for my riding partner (brother). I needed another for a second helmet I bought. Each helmet is fitted with a SMH5 Helmet Kit; I just transfer the main intercom unit from one helmet to the other when I want to change from full face to open face. Piece of cake! They work great.

Great product fairly easy setup. When you order pay attention to the standard microphone vs. the universal mount microphone kit. The universal requires you to mount the microphone to the helmet and is not attached to the base unit. On a full face helmet I think it is an advantage. On a 3/4 I think the standard unit would be best. Have not used yet, going on a trip tomorrow. So far, based on at home test, works well!
