I had a Sena SMH-5 for 4+ seasons before the microphone stopped working. I replaced the mic and it did not correct the problem. I liked it. The sound quality was not the greatest, but it worked great in my Shoei GT air. The SMH-5 made and took phone calls with decent clarity. The SMH-5 allowed me to listen to morning radio on the way to work. The controls were easy to use. The ability to stream music from my phone was nice.
Taking phone calls was a nice perk at times, and a curse at other times. People rarely knew I was on a bike unless I was going 70 MPH, or if I got on the throttle really hard. I would buy the SMH-10 or the 20 without a second thought.
I now have a Shuberth C-4 with the built in SC-1 advanced Com system. I hate it. You can't hear anything above 45 MPH because the wind noise is so bad. I blame the design of the helmet more than the com system for that fault. The C-4 is the loudest helmet I have ever worn. But the controls on the SC-1 are just terrible and not intuitive. I don't want to have my finger mashed into a button on the back of my head for two or five seconds (while trying to dodge cars on a bike) just to get Siri to do an action. Stupid design. (I know they make a handlebar control. After all the $ I put into buying this, I don't want to move the same two stupid buttons to my handlebar.) The helmet is super comfortable though so I just ride with ear plugs and forget the com system exists.
