Affordable quality

The Sena SMH5 is a great bit of kit given the price. Sound quality is good and comes with a surprising number of features. Bought the unit to be able to listen to my Satnav but likely to get a lot more use than originally intended.

Useful basic intercom

Bought this for girlfriends lid. Fits well and is comfortable. Works well when it connects to the Send intercom in my helmet (doesn't o it automatically, or every time). When it dos connect, generally works well. Wires a bit fragile but Sportsbikeshop looked after me well in getting problem sorted out.

Great piece of kit.

This is my first bluetooth headset and intercom and is a great piece of kit, the quality and finish of this product is excellent. Simple fitting instructions are included and pairing up can be found online as well as the leaflets contained with the headset. I have yet to fully use it but no doubt this will perform brilliantly.

Simple but Excellent

I bought this unit to pair with my Sena 10U GT Air unit for intercom with my pillion and I'm really impressed. It's easy to install, simple to use and the clarity of sound even at 70+ mph is excellent. Highly recommended.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • you say this unit can be connected bluetooth to multiple headsets but in another question say that it can only be paired to one other intercom. If i buy three of these will they not be able to chat to each other on a ride? Also is there a cover I could buy to protect it from rain?

    October 15, 2019

    The SMH5 will connect to one other unit (Sena or universal). If you would like to use the systems bike to bike and more than 2, I would suggest the 10s. Unfortunately there is no waterproof cover available, however they are weather proof.

  • Does this come with a soft wire mic for a full face helmet as well as the hard wire boom mic for open or flip helmets?

    May 6, 2019

    The Sena SMH5 is supplied with both a wired mic and a boom mic.

  • Will these fit all types of shark helmets?

    April 22, 2019

  • I wear earplugs when using my Roof Boxer V8. How does this fair if using ear plugs?

    February 25, 2019

    This system is reasonably loud,but we would suggest ear plugs that filter the noise, such as the Auritech. Conversations are still audible whilst wearing these.
