Here are our top 12 key differences between two fantastic bluetooth intercom headsets from Sena.
- The SMH 5 model is primarily designed with scooter riders in mind, whilst the SMH 10 is designed for motorcycle riders and groups.
- The SMH10 supports 4-way multipair conferencing, in other words, 4 riders can talk together.
- The SMH 5 is small and lightweight compared to the SMH 10 whilst the larger jog dial wheel on the SMH 10 is easy to use with gloves, turning volume up down, and most importantly easy to put on standby when the Misses is talking too much.
- The SMH 10 will give up to 900 metres intercom between riders whilst the SMH 5 will provide up to 400 metres intercom between riders.
- The SMH 10 has great optional clamp kits readily available to suit different helmets including clamp kits such as BYO earbuds for riders who wish to use your own.
- The SMH 10 dual kit has two of absolutely everything in the twin pack which makes it a great pack for mates to split and share for intercoms
- The SMH 5 will give you up to 8 hours talk time whilst the SMH 10 will give you up to 12 hours, as easy full days ride.
- The SMH10 supports VOX whilst the SMH5 does not .
- The SMH 5 will give you up to 7 days standby whilst the SMH10 will give you up to 10 days
- The SMH 5 has an optional detachable microphone from the clamp kit so if you just want to listen to music or your GPS navigation then you don’t need the microphone bobbing around in front of your chin, of course this means you cannot talk.
- The SMH 10 helmet clamp kits will allow riders to use non Bluetooth devices via an input 3.5mm jack so iPod’s or other MP3s which don’t have Bluetooth can still be connected.
- In the SMH 5 sales pack, riders are supplied with a micro USB cable for charging whilst both the single and dual SMH 10 packs are currently supplied with 3 charging options; a bike cig charger; AC power adapter and a micro USB charge cable
Whatever your requirements the SMH5 or SMH10 will ensure a more relaxed, safe and enjoyable ride. Both models are software upgradable via the micro USB port, and are supported by a 2 year warranty.
Do you use a UHF radio for communicating or wish you could communicate to many people at once? Don’t be limited by old technology…..jump into 2011 and experience the latest innovation that allows you to integrate the best of headsets, bluetooth and UHF. Mr Mobile will be the first to bring this powerful technology to Australia.
The brand new Sena SR10 has numerous applications. Whether it is motorcycle group riding, outdoor sports and activities or security, the Sena SR10 is a Bluetooth two-way radio adaptor based on bluetooth 2.1 and EDR technology.
This technology will change the way you communicate and all hands free! The unit is about the size of a small mobile phone and comes with clips and attachments for easy positioning. It is powered by a USB rechargeable battery and also comes with a power adaptor.
You can connect various non Bluetooth devices such as two-way radios to the SR10 and talk wirelessly using a Bluetooth headset. The SR10 also allows you to connect other non-Bluetooth devices such as a radar detector or a GPS.
The SR10, allows you to talk by phone or by two-way radio, listen to an alarm signal from a radar detector or to the guidance from your GPS.

We will have these in Australia by early October….so pre-order yours now so you don’t miss out!
I have an SMH-10 now, and an SR-10 would really make for the ultimate motorcycle electronics setup. I already have GMRS radios that will work, and the Motorola 75-785 CB that should, so with 2 wires I’d be able to use either one. I could wire my radar detector with external speaker port to it, and even a Sony Walkman I have with an FM tuner. GPS, MP3, phone, GMRS, CB, FM and radar!
Can’t wait to get my hands on the SR10. I think of this as a Bluetooth router. Cool.
