Shoei Neotec with Sena SMH-10

Anyone have a Shoei neotec with a Sena SMH-10? How Does it Work? Pictures? Did you use the boom mic or can you fix the wired mic to the inside of the face piece? How does it sound?

My wife uses one with the boom mic. The speaker pockets don't work for her, but otherwise she loves it.

I have the smaller Sena the SMH-5 installed on a Neotec. After removing the ear pockets, the speakers fit perfectly and the wires will tuck nicely under the bottom lip. For myself, I did not like the boom mic and used a wired mic. I have it velcroed to the edge of the cheekpad near my mouth. People have no trouble hearing me and some have mentioned that they had no idea I was on the bike talking to them. Sorry but do not have any pics at the moment, perhaps in a couple of days.

Good info...... thanks guys! Good idea on putting the mic on the cheek pad. A pic would be great if you get a chance? Was curious as to the mounting location so it dosen't interfere with the movement of the face guard when it moves up and down?

I have this exact set-up, using the boom mic. Ear pockets work fine and the covers don't push out and rub against my ears. I sent my Neotec into Shoei to get the top vent fixed and asked if I should take out the comm system before I shipped out to them. they said just leave it in there. When I got it back, they had reworked my wiring and placed it between the outer and inner shells of the helmet (I had the wires running up behind the liner). I'm not sure if I like that or not. It's much cleaner, but I don't think I can get the shells apart to remove the system should I want to move the Sena to another helmet at some point down the line.

Using the boom mic, folks I talk to can't tell I'm on a bike, even cruising down the interstate at 70 MPH. Pretty good, if you ask me.

I've got the Sena hooked up to my phone for calls and music and my Garmin for GPS instructions. Works well and I didn't have any issues pairing either device. I'm a fan of the set-up.

My wife and I have Neotec's with SMH-10's. They work fine for us. No comfort issues. The mic boom could be a little longer but doesn't suffer from any performance issues the way it is. I used the little pillows that Sena provides for the speakers to get them close to the ears and have no problems hearing with filtered earplugs. Hope this helps....

sena in my neotec

I have a Sena SMH -10 in my Neotec and my wife's Shuberth. Works great. Mic is a little short but does not effect performance. As other user said people cannot tell you are on phone on a bike at 70 MPH. Got mine at from RKA in Windsor, Ca.
