I had a Chatterbox a whole back but wasn't ever happy with it? What is everybody using and how is the sound quality?
the fact that you can listen to music and talk to others is a huge upgrade. I know you can get bigger speakers for the smh10r but i'm not sure how much they improve the audio quality.I am looking at reviews on the 20s. It's 270 but I want good quality audio for music and reviews for it say it's much better than the 10
this happened to my brothers unit - i looked over and his battery was hanging around his neck. I just bought my wife one and it seems they have changed the mount for the battery now. It's still velcro but there is a plastic mount piece that velcros to the helmet - then the battery clicks into the mount piece. Not sure if the problem you had was wide enough so that they changed the design...I have the 10r too, my only complaint is that the unit I received velcro'd onto my helmet, and the velcro starred failing after about 4 months. One day I found the battery on my chinstrap, and another day I had to drop in in my jacket. I emailed support and they sent me a revised battery clip unit that seems more secure. I have two batteries now and a micro USB adapter to charge the spare!
i wear ear plugs too - i used to wear foam ones but recently upgraded to no noise plugs - the smh10r works great with them. The no noise i believe are 21db but the foam ones i used were 32db. With both i could hear people and music just fine. With the foam 32db i hate to crank it up to 1 or 2 notches below the max but still worked great and i could hear traffic ambient noise etc.I wear ear plugs so these devices wouldnt work for me unfortunately. I wish they made something with actual ear buds that go into the ear.
Good info thanks beck.i wear ear plugs too - i used to wear foam ones but recently upgraded to no noise plugs - the smh10r works great with them.

I've also got the SMH10r and I'm very happy with it for the most part, plus it's extremely low profile unlike the non r version that doesn't look very aerodynamic. I mostly listen to podcasts while riding but sometimes I'll listen to music and it sounds pretty good, if the base had more oomf it would be perfect.I have a sena smh10r.
It's easy to set up though hard to figure out pairing with more than one person. Sound quality is good but not as good as in ear headphones - i'm an audio nut but these are sufficient for their purpose. Battery life is great.
1 thing is if you're paired with another headset, you can only listen to music or talk to the person. You can't do both. They have a new unit coming out that does both but it's $230 instead of $160.
