my first use after upgrading to 4.0.
1) I cleared all settings to factory
2) cleared device from phone.

3) paired device with phone for both phone and stereo (crackberry) (this was done with unit off helmet)

went out to garage, put smh on helmet, put on helmet, turned device on, volume on audio prompt "hello" was a little down.
Turned on phone and I got the "device connected" and it was much louder then first prompt.
Turned on MP3 player (on phone) sounded great, same volume as version 3.x

never did receive a phone call so I can't help you with that one.

Looking at moving from my Starcom to the SMH10, anyone use it with a DS helmet? I am using a Fly Trekker wondering if anyone has had any experience with it it and that helmet?

I use mine with the Shoei Hornet. No issue.

They'll usually last a typcial riding DAY....but don't count on 24hrs continuous use. The good news is that they can be charged while on your head and in use.

I have done 12 hour riding days no problem, then recharge off the bike at night while camping. Good for another 12 hours the next day.

11 - 12 hours is about what I get....
If I were clever and did a brief-boost-charge during stops (lunch break etc) I could go longer.

new firmware

The wife and I have had ours for about a year now and love them. The new firmware is awsum, it now does almost everything you could want. I use my smart phone for music GPS and phone and it works flawlessly. The new spoken commands make it even easier to use.

When I first got mine, I wore foam earplugs and kept the helmet speakers cranked at close to or at 100% volume. In that case, I got 7-8 hours of constant music streaming from my iPhone.

I have since switched to the earbud helmet clamp and replaced my helmet speakers / foam earplugs with custom earbuds from http://earfuz.com. I now keep the volume of the SENA much much lower, and the payoff is longer run time. My longest day since getting the SENA has been a little over 600 miles in about 10 hours. I was expecting it to die at any point, but it was still going strong when I pulled in the garage. Big test will be this July when I head out to Colorado for a couple of days. I'm expecting to do ironbutt miles on that trip. I also have an electrified tank bag with two of these installed http://burnsmoto.com/usb-power-socket-weatherproof.php. That way I can keep my iPhone fully charged while streaming all day, and can recharge the SENA if the need arises.

I have it mounted to two flip up helmets and use the boom mic in both installations.

Earbud jack hack

When I received the helmet clamp kit for earbuds, I examined the earbud jack protruding from the clamp and muttered "I just know I'm gonna break this".

I was right.

Sena, coincidentally, is back ordered, so I decided to see if I could fix it.



I took an earbud extension cable I had laying around and soldered a new one in. I used a small tie-wrap as strain relief.



Operation a success!

HEY THANKS for answering one of my concerns
Although my plan would be to not wait for the "breaking" part and go directly to this better solution for my custion in helmut speakers

If there's some tips I can offer, it's these:

1. There's four (yes, 4) screws for the back plate. You need to peel back the rubber backing on the mount to see the other two.
2. The wires are surface soldered.
3. I broke the back plate at the mic boom. The strain relief would not pop out. I didn't see any other way to pull it apart.

Sounds like a cool idea. Do you have a different approach for mounting the clamp?
