Getting Bluetooth® Headset Microphone to Fit Inside Motorcycle Helmet Now Easier Thanks to New Sena Option

Sena SMH5 Gives Riders Choice Between Wired or Boom Mic

  SAN JOSE, Calif. (June 8, 2012) – Sena Technologies, Inc., a Bluetooth innovator in the motorcycle and outdoor activities market, announced it has yet again improved the landscape of Bluetooth motorcycle communicators with a brand new option on its entry-level SMH5 headset/intercom. Riders who want the versatility of connecting to their mobile phones, mp3 audio, and GPS navigation through Bluetooth, and to another rider or passenger via intercom now have the option to choose whether they want a boom or a wired microphone to come standard in their SMH5 package. Users who wear full face helmets often prefer the sleeker fit of the wired mic inside their protective head gear. The boom microphone works best for riders wearing modular and other open face helmets.

“Everything we make comes out of a desire to provide a better experience for our customers,” said Tae Kim, President and CEO of Sena Technologies, Inc. “The option to purchase the SMH5 with a wired microphone gives users one more way to customize their riding experience to exactly what works for them.”

Sena Technologies, Inc. released its price-conscious SMH5 in March 2012. The unit so far has received numerous accolades from the industry for providing Bluetooth communication technology at an accessible price point for most riders. With the option of choosing a wired microphone in one’s SMH5 single or dual package, customers receive the same Bluetooth v3.0 technology as with the boom microphone. With either microphone attached to the SMH5, riders can wirelessly make cellular calls, listen to stereo music, mp3 audio or voice instruction from GPS navigation. Riders can also effortlessly hold conversations with another motorcyclist or a passenger via the SMH5’s two-way, multi-pair Bluetooth intercom system up to a distance of one-quarter mile on the open road. Motorcyclists who wear gloves while riding may appreciate the easy-to-access, single button and dial operations. The SMH5 also supports the Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP), allowing the user to listen to music wirelessly over Bluetooth, but also remotely control music playback from Bluetooth audio devices. The SMH5 may be charged while in use.

The SMH5 with either the boom microphone or the wired microphone package retails for $129.00 for a single kit and $249.00 for a dual kit and is available, along with Sena’s line of other Bluetooth products, at retailers throughout the country, as well as online at
