If you have a bluetooth helmet, please tell me how you like it. Is it loud enough to hear at highway speeds?

If you don't have a bluetooth helmet, and you had the opportunity to buy one, do you think you would?

I put the sena 10 in mine, love it and yes it loud enough and great distance range. My wife can talk to me from the motor home a half mile away, cell phone use is also very good. people don't even know I am on the scoot.

I don't use a helmet with built in Bluetooth but do use Bluetooth headsets and they work great.

I use the LG HBS-700, which is very versatile.

you can check out the review on my Burgman Center.



I use an Bluetooth splitter for my MP3 players that don't have Bluetooth built-in.



You pair the headset to two devices, mp3 player and lets say a phone.

good luck...

I used Nolan 102 ncom and was satisfied with the performance. Pretty handy when you have to receive lots of calls etc.

But I am a big fan of wired technology (old school ;) ), so once there's no need for calls, the necessity of such device is gone too

I use an Interphone F5XT in both my and my wife's Nolan N104 helmets. Not quite as loud as the Nolan N-com B4 that I had tried before, but much greater battery life (3-4x). Very versatile BT unit.

I have the older Nolan N-Com system, swapping it back and forth between an N43 (summer) and N90s (everything else). I don't use it much, but when I do need it, sound quality is excellent in both directions, even at freeway speeds. The only downside is that I won't be able to move it to a newer Nolan when it's time for a replacement. In the meantime, though... :D

Had the Cardo Scala Rider (think that it was the G4 series) installed in my Shoei Multitech helmet. Worked great. Riding from San Antonio to Daytona bike week about 3 yrs ago while on my Honda ST1300, it was good for listening to tunes from my Iphone and communicating (clearly) w/ 2 other riders. Distance is not quite a mile to talk w/ another rider but with 3 or 4 riders spread out, the distance will increase since the headsets of the riders in the middle of the group act as a "relay" station for lack of a better term. Sometimes picky to get the headsets to pair up when gearing up for a ride but probably more operator error/learning curve than fault w/ the Cardo set. Haven't decided whether or not it install it in my new helmet since I usually ride by myself.

I use the Scala Rider Q2 Pro mounted to my Shoei Neotec Helmet. The FM radio works very well...the bluetooth connects to my android phone immediately. The sound has almost no bass...but sounds great after a mile or two. Wish Bose would come out with a motorcycle aftermarket speaker....

I also have the Sena SH10. Neat thing about this bluetooth is you have the option to use built in speakers - which are quite decent - or you can purchase it to use with in -ear buds of your choice, which gives by far the best sound as far as music. I have the set with built in speakers on my Scorpion 900 helmet, and I use the ear phone set up with my HJC 3/4 helmet (summer riding). The main control module just clips on to either set up. Phone quality is outstanding, bike to bike is about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile depending on terrain; and intercom is loud and clear when wife is aboard.

+1 Sena SMH10 all the way, outperforms any other Bluetooth system on battery life and usability, one button and one big jog dial that makes easy enough to handle it when using any type of gloves. Works with iPhone and Android phones. I charge it once every 1.5 weeks and use it every single day.

on top of that, I'd say Sena is one of the very few vendors that provides a lot of accessories (http://www.senabluetooth.com/products/smh10.php?tab_menu=acc).


Question for the Sena users, how could you communicate from the motorcycle to a car? I've checked the SM10 but looks like that will only work if the motorcycle and the car have both radios plus the sena device.

I bought an older model of the BT Interphone many years ago when I had my Goldwing. Never was able to get it to work very well. I got it out the other day and charged it up and discovered that it works with my iPhone 5 earbuds that have the microphone on them. Pretty cool to listen to my music from my iPhone, and then be able to take or even make calls while riding (although for safety reasons I don't do that very often at all). Still, nice to know I could.
