First off, thank you Revzilla for the great price and fast shipping.
My first impression using the SMH10R on the streets is that all the advantages Anthony said about the Sena SMH10-11 over the SMH10R are true. The reason why I went with the 10R instead of the 10-11 is that I liked the lower profile. But that one pro came with more cons. The issues I have with the 10R are the buttons are harder to press accurately, the external battery adds an extra wire/connector/component you have to deal with, and the speaker sound quality is not the greatest. Overall, I'm still happy with the product but if I can do it again, I would go with the 10-11.
With the smaller profile, I found myself accidentally pressing the incorrect button and spending too much time to make sure I am pressing the correct button when, instead, I should be focusing more on the road and the task at hand. This is especially important on a motorcycle while riding alongside other vehicles.
The extra wire did make it a little more difficult to tuck away under my helmet (Scorpion EXO-R410).
Like a lot of other reviews about this product, the speakers are sub par. It sounds OK if you are in a quiet location but if you're going to be on a bike, it makes it more difficult to hear. This con is probably more subjective because it can depend on the helmet.
Last thing, make sure you have the latest firmware because I was having issues where after connecting to the headset, the phone calls would work on the Bluetooth speakers but the music would play on the phone's speaker instead of the Bluetooth speakers.
