I split an SMH-10 Dual Pack with a friend / frequent riding partner. He is very happy with the unit and wishes he had purchased it sooner. He rides a Tiger Explorer, and seldom uses earplugs on local trips, so the sound volume was fine for him. He also regularly uses the bluetooth function to receive phone calls and for GPS directions. He recently took a longer trip wearing earplugs and listening to music. The sound was okay up to about 75mph, which is about as fast as he rides, so no real problem.
I ride sport bikes and wear earplugs. Main usages: bike-to-bike, rider-to-passenger (borrowing friend's radio), and music. With the added wind noise, the sound volume is adequate most of the time, but I would prefer being able to add more volume.
Range B2B is about half of advertised. Worse with obstructions. Still fine for my current purposes.
I had to turn off the VOX on the intercom, as I was constantly getting "Intercom failed. Try again later." interruptions to the music when riding alone. I turned of the phone VOX on general principle.
The cigar lighter power adapter is underpowered. It charges the SMH-10 okay, but will not charge my cell phone. This means I have to carry two charges when traveling, or just leave the Sena charge at home. Not good.
Since this is principally a bike product, I would prefer to see it come with, or at least offer, a powerlet/BMW style charger.
My last disappointment is that the various companies cannot come to a common communication standard. It would be especially nice to be able to communicate with Cardo/Scala owners. I compared the units, and felt that the Sena was the better choice for me. I suppose both/all of the companies feel that they would lose sales by giving up exclusivity, but this really s/b addressed to bring the usefulness of the products into the current age. Can you imagine not being able to talk to your friends just because they don't own the same brand of phone?
As noted at the beginning, I'm glad I bought the product, but really would like to see the improvements implemented.
Yes, I recommend this product.
