    FLASH! 08-April-2012

    We're thrilled to announce that we have the new Sena SMH5 Bluetooth headset kits - both single and dual packs - in stock and ready for immediate shipment to you!

    Sena has packed a lot of value into a slick new product - and it's totally breaking new ground with the latest Bluetooth 3.0 technology, a revised clamp mount that has NO PINS or connectors, and a myriad of accessories from microphones that accommodate different helmet types, to larger speakers upgrade, all available soon.

    Full compatibility to intercom with the SMH10 and SPH10 headsets, as well. And... best of all, a KILLER price that is even better with your ADVRider discount! What's not to like? :clap

    when it says multi-pair bluetooth for the smh5, does that mean it can pair up to 4 units (smh5's) for intercom like the smh10?

    Sort of. The SMH5 can pair with up to three other headsets, but communication is only 1-to-1, whereas the SMH10 can do a 4-way 'conference call'. The SMH5 work the way the original SMH10 did, with regards to intercom between headsets.

    Multi-pairing with regards to mobile phones, lets you connect your headset to two mobile phones at once.

    Amazing - the SMH5's are sellin' like crazy. We ran out of dual kits in just a few days.

    More dual's here at the beginning of the week, along with accessory clamp kits.

    What about streaming music from my iPhone 4? Can I have my iPhone paired and still use between helmet communication?

    Yowza, no problem. Helmet-to-helmet uses a proprietary Sena Bluetooth profile, so you can pair to your phone and have intercom to another rider with a Sena SMH5 or SMH10, or to a passenger.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note.
    Will it pair with Android?
    I am really only interested in music from my phone.
    Can it control and select music from phone?
    Can it be used without the speaker boom?
    I wear ear plugs...will I be able to hear music thru ear plugs?
    I wear a Shoei Quest.
    Thanx in advance....sounds like it may be just the ticket.....:D

    ordered a SMH5 earlier and just installed it.
    Paired with my SMH10 no problem, intercoms with the SMH10 no problem, plays music from the iphone via bluetooth.

    I like how it doesn't have pins, it also noticeably smaller than the SMH10 too...and the price was right.

    Will it pair with Android? - Android phone - I presume? :D Yes.
    Can it control and select music from phone? Yes.
    Can it be used without the speaker boom? Yes.
    I wear ear plugs...will I be able to hear music thru ear plugs? Yes, presuming you have 'normal' hearing - so long as you position the speakers properly, you should be OK. This is especially important with molded earplugs.

    I wear a Shoei Quest. Should be no problem.

    Ordered it from Adam and it was a perfect transaction. Very well packed and on time. Set up in seconds with my iphone4 and I was using it right away. Did a couple of hundred Colorado miles and it worked well.

    I'll report back on the pros and cons after I get some ore miles. Here are a couple things I noticed right off the bat.

    - good mounting to the helmet
    - On the Shoei Hornet you have to situate the ear pieces very carefully if you don't want them to rub on your ears. Arai should have no issues.
    - sometimes when I turned my head far to the right, the volume went up. Wind? It was usually at 60mph+
    - You don't even notice it on your helmet when riding. Very small.
    - buttons/dial are easy to access
    - I put my iphone in the map compartment on my tank bag and it shut down due to over heating. So then I put my phone in my right leg pocket. On occasion, I felt like the Bluetooth would cut out a little. I switched the phone to my left leg pocket and did not have the same issue.
    - It's great for turning the volume down at stoplights to talk with other riders.

    All and all, very happy. thanks RocketMoto!

    Does anyone know if a bluetooth adapter exists that allows you to hook up a traditional radio (like FRS/GMRS) w/ a headset/mic jack to pair w/ a SENA? I noticed the SMH5 doesn't have an aux jack, it's just straight BT.

    EDIT: Nevermind... Sena has a product for that already! Sena BT Radio Hub. :rollseyes

    You can do this two ways - first is to use the SR10 Bluetooth hub. A second option is using a 2-way Bluetooth adapter like the Camos BTA-R.

    Questions? Give us a call on 877.533.4245.
