I got the Sena SMH5 for the wife after putting an SMH10 on my helmet last summer. The 2 communicators paired up easily and now she's happy on the back with music or if she want's to take a call, she can.
She has a full-faced helmet and the mic and speakers routed easily and are neatly out of the way. Battery life of the unit is good too.
Time for some longer rides!
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first communicator and so far it's been great! Install was a snap on a Shoei Neotec modular helmet.
The speakers were exactly what I was looking for. I've used ear-buds for years but they never fit quite right or they would pull out part way and make it uncomfortable.
The bluetooth paired right up to my Droid 3 and works great with Iheart radio app. I had the helmet open when the wife called and she said she could hear a little wind but I was clear even at 40 mph.
I'm going to buy another for her helmet now and I'll be able to test out the intercom ability, but I don't expect a problem.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I picked up the NEOTEC 2 weeks ago to replace an older ICON full face helmet. The SHOEI fit's per their sizing guideline which put me in a large and my other helmet was an XL.
For me this helmet is just a little louder than my previous one but I think it's more attributed to my riding position and windshield positioning (riding an 08 Concours 14). I also do not wear earplugs like many do.
The visor removes quickly and is replaced just as fast. The Pin-Lock insert is great too! This is the first time I've had a fog insert and it's exactly what I've needed riding home from work on colder mornings.
The internal sun visor works as advertised and without a hitch.
Now to save up for a communicator and we'll see how that fits into this helmet in the precut speaker pockets.
Yes, I recommend this product.
