    Has anyone upgraded from the original smh10d to the newest Sena SMH10D-10?

    Is the volume louder and how is the range, is it improved? I sold my old dual set and upgraded to the newest because I got a good deal and it only cost me $40 for the upgrade.

    Anyone else do the same and was there a big improvement or about the same other than being able to connect multiple bluetooth devices?

    I just looked at the Sena website and I don't see an SMH10D or SMH10D-10.

    I just made it up, Sena doesn't make bluetooth headsets silly. It was all an elaborate joke. :rofl You fell for it!

    They did upgrade the hardware at least once, when they changed from mini USB to micro USB connectors. I bought mine in 2011 and it already had micro USB. I haven't heard about more recent updates.

    To answer my own question. I received the mythical smh10d-10 today and it is indeed louder and clearer than the older smh10d-1. I plan to try it out this weekend to see if the range is indeed longer than the older model. I do love the fact it uses a standard micro usb charger like my phones.

    The orig sena smh10 was not mini USB, it was nothing. That is, there was no USB data interface... Only power via a coax connector for charging, but firmware not upgradeable. By the time I upgraded from coax it was micro. I guess there have been 3 versions so far?
