Sena Technologies Inc. has revamped its SMH10 Bluetooth headset and intercom for motorcycles. The changes allow riders the option to purchase a standard package with a fixed boom microphone or a universal kit that comes with attachable boom and wired flat microphones. It also reduces e-waste by eliminating the wall charger “brick” from the package inclusions, which in turn has allowed Sena to lower the overall price of the SMH10.
The system may be charged using the included USB cable, which can be plugged into any certified USB compatible “bricks” or a personal computer. This reduces the original cost from $219 for a single kit or $399 for a dual kit, to $209 (single) and $379 (dual) for the standard package. It also reduces the number of electronic accessories that often end up as e-waste as a result of consumers acquiring multiple devices.
Sena has also introduced new universal microphone kit packages in addition to the standard fixed boom microphone kit package. The universal microphone kit package comes with the SMH10 main unit, together with the universal microphone clamp kit with attachable boom attachable boom microphone and wired flat microphone. The price of the SMH10 with the universal microphone kit package is $219 for a single kit or $399 for a dual kit. Existing Sena SMH10 users also now have the option to purchase a universal microphone kit as an accessory to give themselves the freedom to switch between a boom mic and a wired mic.
