So I am not one to complain if I don't like a product. But when I find something I do like, I'll share it.
First, I use the Sena SMH10R. Love it, absolutely love it. The only thing I had to do was to have it turned up almost as loud as it would go because I always wear ear plugs when I ride. The only issue is, the little speakers the Sena comes with are not that good from a sound quality perspective. Sena makes this adapter to use ear buds if you want.
All you do is unhook the speaker connector and plug this in. Then you can use ear buds. But what ear buds can I use if I use ear plugs?? Well, this is the best part. This company makes ear plugs that block 25dB's. That's a good set of ear plugs. But the neat thing is they also have a small hole that let's music go right to your ear. Got them and used them on a 250 mile trip today. Wow are they good.
I got the 'Executive' ones for $24.95. These are very comfortable, sound very good, and they block a lot of the wind noise. If you want some details on installation, PM mean and I'll show you what I did. Putting the helmet on and keeping the wires short can be tricky. But I have the bud wires tucked into the helmet pretty far and they are not too bad.
Lastly, my bike was a mess when I got home. I broke out the detail spray to clean it up. Bought this stuff from Chemical Guys. Works amazingly well.
I got all excited for a second, because since the last two firmware upgrades, my Sena SMH10 had to be turned all the way up, for the same reason, I wear custom fitted ear plugs. Then I got depressed, because the accessory you linked won't work for mine. A little searching though brought me to this
I had no idea the earbud adapter existed. I was just thinking of something like this today. I've had a 10R since Thursday and the speakers suck. I'd much rather have ear buds if I plan to listen to music. And trying to use the intercom at anything over 50 mph is an exercise in futility with ear plugs. I'll order one this week. Thanks!
