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.

Fits good and seams to have plenty of volume. Is clear with little or no static. I haven't had much of a chance to try the Intercom yet . As is I have no complaints.

I've used the Sena SMH10R for almost 2 years on an RF-1100 and now moved it over to an RF-1200 helmet. Its low profile doesn't create additional wind noise. the mic does a great job cutting out wind noise, in fact, with it installed on the RF1200 helmet, on several calls now at highway speeds not one caller complained about background noise. It helps a lot to have the mic right up where your mouth is so proper placement is critical. I use the earbud attachment as then I can hear better than the speakers but also cut out a significant amount of wind noise using silicone ear buds. My commute is 30-40 minutes with 20-30 of it at freeway speeds. My wife has been able to hear just fine using the speakers, but she also sits behind me so I'm sure having me as a wind block helps! I discovered that using standard velcro strips works just fine, I have a roll of velcro tape at home and used it instead of buying the Sena package of adhesives. pairing with an iPhone is easy and connecting intercoms isn't difficult either. Unfortunately the 3-button limitation probably makes the menu selection harder on-the-fly, but I learned to get the settings dialed in at home and just have to memorize only 3-4 functions when i'm riding. I also use a RAM bar handle mount so my iPhone is right in front of me and I can do simple swipe/touch gestures if absolutely needed, so I have turned off the voice commands - it's a bit too sensitive due to wind noise at highway speeds.

Found the instructions hard to understand - turning on/off and making it work by voice is still a mystery. Sometimes it works, sometimes not- did get some clues from the Tech at Americade. Can't say its bad but hoped for a simpler operation. Best I can give it is a "C".
