I bought a pair of Sena 10U headsets to replace SMH10 headsets that finally wore out. I should have bought another pair of SMH10 headsets at half the cost of the 10U headsets.
The 10U concept is nice, but the units don't live up to their promise. They're not well designed, and Sena tried to do more than the technology is capable of doing.
They don't install very well. The various components that have to be slipped in between the helmet shell and padding don't stay put. The SMH10 clamped on the helmet and never moved.
The sound quality of the 10U is OK when I'm still in the garage and there's no noise around me. But, as soon as the motor is on, or there are other noises around, the sound quickly degrades. At 60 MPH on the highway? Forget it. No improvement over the SMH10.
Reception on the 10U is lousy. Static and hiss are commonplace. Maybe I got a bad pair of headsets, but the reception on my SMH10 units was better.
Sena claims intercom range for the 10U is about a mile, but that is line-of-sight. No improvement over the SMH10, except for a slightly longer range in open country, which is almost useless.
The battery life is terrible. It has to be charged every time it's used. I just leave it plugged in when not in use. Same with the remote control, when I used it. I got multiple uses out of the SMH10 before having to charge it.
The remote control is bulky and awkward. I don't use it anymore because it mainly just gets in the way. The controls on the helmet are inside the visor, so you have to lift it to access the unit.
The best feature of the SMH10 is the large control knob on the receiver. It's a brilliant design.
Customer service is awful. They have to look up everything and call you back.
In summary, the Sena 10U is a bad product.
No, I do not recommend this product.

After a friend took a spill on one of our recent rides, I decided to upgrade some of my protective gear. I paid $80 for this product hoping it would be like the hard-armor Alpinestars BioArmor Back Protector that I kept seeing at Cycle Gear. Instead, it's just a thicker, heavier, soft-armor back protector that doesn't seem much different than the Dual Density Spine Protector that came with my Phoenix 5.0 jacket. Both offer protection from contact with the road. However, if your back hits something like a reflector pole, I don't see how either product will help much. My opinion is that the cost doesn't justify the very small increase in protection. I recommend doing some research on motorcycle armor and back protectors before buying anything. Apparently, the majority of spinal injuries are caused by blows to the hip and shoulders, which would limit the usefulness of many of these "back protectors."
No, I do not recommend this product.
