Guys I need some advice on what helmet com to buy. I need it mostly for driver to passenger communication.
So far I haven't met any other motovloger in my area so i don't think I'll be doing dual vlogs any time soon.
I have been looking some of the cheap ones on e-bay and if I would go with a brand name i could order
a pair of Interphone F5MC. Though it is not a cheap unit I kinda like the looks of it and all the features it has. What do you guys think? Is it worth investing over 250€ for listening to music, driver/passenger talks and maybe (but the chances are slim) doing dual vlogs in the future? Or should I go with the china stuff from e-bay?

Got this and love it but I did have the sena sm5 and don't see any major difference between them both

Sena 20S seams like an awesome device but a bit expensive. Dual pack with F5MC/FBeat is 235 euro. I could use the f5mc and install the FBeat in
my girlfriends helmet. But the question is do I even need that? Or would a cheap com system suffice?

I went with the Sena because pretty much every review puts them at the top in about every category. I got the 20S, but the 10S or even the SMH5R would be fine for your use. But I get the cost concern when purchasing multiple units.

Sena is probably the best product but a bit to costly for me here so i am still looking for a less expensive solution.

I'm biased towards Sena too. I use the 20S and I'm quite happy with it. What about checking for secondhand Senas? Maybe someone's giving it away.

I heard the Rolan's are pretty reliable and does what the tin says
I'll check for those as well. Thanks!

The 20S Has two thins that concern me. First it is expensive and second it is not waterproof.
I do like the 10R though. Nice slim unit, removable battery so you can replace it if needed. I know it is not in the same class but it supports anycom
and it is more affordable to me.



So far these are some of the options
-Sena 10R single 205 $
-Intrphone duble pack with F5MC and FBeat for 254 $
- Sena 20S single 292$ ( not waterproof )

I highly recommend the Sena SMH10. It is an old model and bulky compared to the newer ones, but man they are reliable.

I've had mine since December 2011 and it has been in all sorts of weather but continues to work well. It looks its age, but is awesome! I use it every time that I hop on the bike.

I've got a set of cheap T-COM rebrands (Buyee)

They work, they connect my wife and I though we've only tried with her as a pillion, not a distance away.

Connects to my phone and plays music takes phone calls.

I'd love to compare them directly to a set of Sena's particularly in regards to volume/sound quality but I dont' have any basis for comparison. They do work though.

Following. I've seen some reviews of some other brands of Bluetooth headsets, but Sena is the top dog. I don't know if I want to take a chance on a cheaper one (I can get a pair for 115) or fork out the money for some HQ Senas.

I have been running a Sena 20s for a couple years now and I love it, paired with the Sena Prism (not the Prism Tube) you get nice clear audio, loud speakers, several mic options, the battery last a really long time, and so far I am still using the same unit I have had since I went to Sena. I have been caught in heavy rain, been in mud, been in dirt, been in a wreck and it still works great.
