I hope Sena comes up with a better firmware update that leads me to give this item 5 stars and a solid recommend but with firmware 1.1.1 it's not happening.
I loved my SMH-10 but the one thing it was missing was the ability to leave open the group intercom AND listen to music. We ride with the group intercom on all the time to be able to call out any road hazards quickly. Along comes the 20s and audio multitasking, I was excited. Installed the 20s and now I'm disappointed.
The audio multitasking just does not work. Music on the 20s sounds great until you connect to another rider. As soon as you connect the music becomes too choppy to listen to. As soon as you drop the intercom, the music goes back to sounding great. Another problem was that even with music off, there are constant crackle and popping noises when on the intercom. I've tested with connections to several other Sena units, as well as my SMH-10 the 20s replaced and I get the same results.
Right now, the reason I picked it up, audio multitasking, is a bust.
Bummer, because I like Sena products. I hope a firmware update fixes this soon.

Great glove for summer riding but while the fingers are perfect for my size hand the web (thumb to forefinger) is too short. You have to really break these in to get them comfortable or you probably have to go with a larger size and have flappy fingers. I chose to break them in and they are pretty good now. These gloves require patience.
