Sena SMH5-FM

Posted on: February 6th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA

Sena Bluetooth Headset systems represent the highest standard of Bluetooth and intercom technology available. They make it easy to listen to music or navigation directions, talk to other riders, and have phone conversations as you ride. With the introduction of the SMH5-FM, Sena has added FM radio capability onto its junior model, the SMH5.

Compared to the SMH10, the SMH5s are smaller and lighter, but they also don’t have the depth of abilities of the senior Sena. However, the reduced size, lower price, and new FM radio feature, make the ‘junior’ a perfect choice for many riders who don’t need the 12-hour battery life (though it still offers a very reasonable 7 hours) and 4-way conferencing of the 10.

The SMH5-FM still boasts Sena’s class-leading incoming and outgoing sound quality, ease of use and installation, and key features. It’s also the only Sena with an FM tuner and, again, for a lower price, it’s an excellent choice for someone not looking for the depth offered by the SMH10.

You might not be excited about installing something like this yourself. We offer free headset installation with units purchased from us.
