Surprisingly decent sound quality. Bluetooth goes out of range of other riders at a few hundred metres so I still have to keep up haha. Phonecalls and music sound pretty good in the lid! Have not used the radio. For the price it's 5/5
Seems ok

Easy to fit in the helmet, fairly comprehensive instructions supplied. Sound quality is okay not the best but taken into account the price it is acceptable. Radio reception is not good, in fact only found one station, but that is not important to me as I don't listen to the radio.

Works well and is well made. Loud (I can actually hear it with ear plugs). Needed to print full instructions for multi pairing, which are really useful.
Exceptional service from SBS: item arrived by return on a Friday order.
Great headset but not much bass
01 February 2021 by Andrew K
Great product and easy to install. I have a shark helmet and the speakers are spot on size wise to go in the pre cut holes. I used the spacer foam pads on the outside of the speakers to try and give the sound a bit more bass and this has helped but still a bit tinny for my liking. Works well and if you are riding with lots of others we used Discord so no matter how many riders or the range you are apart signal is based on internet data so full coverage in almost all places. And it is free to all Best option
No more Bluetooth signal failed

Really nice bit of kit, the speakers are nice and clear, and its easy to install, phone calls are clear. down side is you need to be in intercom mode to talk and it doesn't stop your music when a person speaks. otherwise I'm really pleased with it.

  • Just purchased a shark carbon helmet from you and want an intercom system . Do senna do a shark helmet system to fit ? I have seen sharktooth but mates got different systems and sharktooth not comparable . Many thanks

    January 15, 2018

    Unfortunately Sena do not make a system specifically for Shark helmets, and so you would need to use a universal system such as the SMH-5.

    No, this is a single unit

  • Hi - can this unit be used without having either of the microphones connected. Only need to listen to SatNav.
