Why you need the Sena SPH10H-FM Bluetooth Intercom with FM Tuner for your half helmet

There are many reasons why you should adopt a Bluetooth Intercom into your half helmet. It allows for safer, hands-free functionality of your mobile phones or any other Bluetooth devices, allowing you to multitask. You can also pair it with your phone or any Bluetooth compatible devices to either listen to music, radio, and podcasts. 

On top of that, wearing a helmet especially on the road also hinders your hearing. With this device, you won’t have to worry about taking off your helmet and you can even communicate with other riders, or even call your mum at home while you’re on the road. 

Here’s a more in depth look at the benefits of the Sena SPH10H-FM:

  • Simple earpad design
  • This design is to enable you to install the Sena SPH10H-FM quickly and easily into your half helmet.
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Many Bluetooth enabled helmets come with version 2, but only a few have the latest version. Receive or deliver outgoing and incoming audio for GPS directions, phone calls, music, and intercom conversations with other riders up to 200 meters (220 yards) away.
  • Hands-free GPS navigation
  • When you’re in unfamiliar territory, chances are you’re referring to your phone or NAV screen for directions. This can be very cumbersome, and more importantly it poses a risk to your safety and others around you as it distracts you from the road. By connecting to the Sena SPH10H-FM you can have the app telling you where to go.
  • Communication with maximum talk time
  • With the built-in voice prompt activation, you can easily operate the Bluetooth by answering or rejecting phone calls. For example, if you need to take an important call for work, you can prompt the phone to answer the call. Or if it is an unwanted call disrupting your music or podcast, you can choose to reject it and continue your listening pleasure.
  • You can also send texts or emails with new dictation technologies. 
  • With the four-way conference intercom on the SPH10H-FM, you can have a conversation with whomever you’re riding with. With the sidetone, you can hear yourself talk clearly.
  • With a single charge, you can get eight hours of talk time and seven days of stand-by time.
  • Listen to the Radio
  • With the built-in FM Radio tuner in the Sena SPH10H-FM and jog dial, you can scan and save your favorite radio stations! 
  • It is equipped to receive FM stereo signals and with the built-in hands free phone function, you can even participate in radio games.
  • Stream your favorite music
  • Personally, I think there is no greater joy than listening to music while cruising on your bike. Whether you’re taking a joyride or just commuting to and from work, music makes everything better. You can hook up your phone and listen to your favorite playlists and even share it with another rider with the intercom ability! 
  • You can also control your music by using the AVRCP Bluetooth control. 
  • Prefer podcasts? You can also listen to your favorite podcasts by hooking up the Bluetooth and turning on the app!
  • Improved sound with noise control 
  • The Sena SPH10H-FM is designed keep wind and engine noise to a minimal due to its noise-blocking technology. The built in speakers give crystal clear and natural sound quality. 
  • Water resistant
  • Let’s not confuse this with the device being waterproof. Water resistant simply means it can tolerate minimal exposure to water. So, don’t go soaking into any pools of water!

The extra thing you will love? At around 0.5 kg, it’s just one of the lightest options out there. You can’t get any helmet that weighs lesser for sure. No matter what type of bike you ride, you are sure to love wearing this one. 

Verdict

The Sena SPH10H-FM is beneficial for many reasons. It has a comfortable fit as it just sits right on your ears. The Bluetooth device itself is embedded into earflaps that are easily removable from your open or half helmet.

From rider to rider communication as well as all of the other Bluetooth pairing features from GPS to text messaging, it really does the job well. Not to mention the superb sound quality of the built-in speakers enhancing every moment. The Sena SPH10H-FM is perfect for almost every activity.
