    My 20S did that. Turns out, it was rubbing on my cycling jacket collar. I couldn't tell, one of my friends noticed it after I mentioned what was happening.

    Have you gotten a replacement yet? I returned mine too, a couple weeks ago. Still waiting.

    My 30 has been great. Solid. Love the mesh.

    thanks for the reply. i thought that might be the cause so i made sure my collar is zipped up. maybe im tilting my head towards my shoulder when looking left thus still adjusting the dial.

    Yes. I've had it a little over a week. I got what looks like a new unit in a box. I figured out how to get my PackTalk Bold to work with my SR-10 so I haven't taken it out of the box yet.

    Hope I get mine soon. Got an email that said they were processing shipment a week ago.

    mine works below 80-90Km/H, anything faster i think the wind noise is drowning out the commands

    I think that mimics my results as it seems to work in my house.

    Does the mount work on the 30s with the 50 ( I have a second helmet)?

    I know 20S and 50S mounts work.

    The mount will work. Sena warns about the loss in fidelity with the old speakers. Hard to tell at speed.

    I traded in my 30K for the 50S. They let you keep the 30K helmet mount. I want to use the 50S on a second helmet. Is there any difference in performance between between getting an additional 50S helmet mount with speakers ($99) vs. recycling my 30K mount with the 50S speaker upgrade ($39)?

    I was using the 50 on my 20s mount this afternoon and cannot tell the difference.

    Thanks. I guess the differences are in the speakers and in the head unit, not in the mount. I'm going to go ahead and order just the speakers.

    Supposed to be more moisture protection in the new mount, however, it is NOT waterproof. As we all know, it never rains when one rides a motorcycle!

    The sealing gasket around the mount pins is different on the 50S than on 20S/30K mounts. It's a rubber gasket instead of foam.

    I can't find a way to adjust mic gain, am I missing something?

    Hearing engine noise over a buddies mesh intercom, shifting, etc. Not always, but just enough where a slight adjustment seems like it would tune it out.

    I think that your buddy has to enable noise cancelling.
