    Unit Capabilities

    I have no experience with bluetooth technology and am not a tech person.  That said, I've narrowed my choice in headsets to either a Sena SMH-5FM or Cardo Q1.  All I intend to do with it on the Trophy is use the radio and my phone through the bike's blue tooth and intercom with my wife on the back of my bike.  It seems what I would do is pair my phone and headset with the bike, then pair my wife's headset with mine.  This seems very simple, which is why I'm suspicious it isn't.  From what I can tell either unit should be able to do what I want.

    The only other thing I have in the back of my mind is if I wanted to use the headset for radio and phone on my Versys.  That bike, of course, has no built-in bluetooth and my wife does not ride with me.  It seems all I would do for that is pair my phone with the headset and be done.  I suspect the problem would be in switching back and forth between bikes.  I don't think I would want the phone and headset paired while riding the Trophy, so I guess I would have to pair and unpair them depending on which bike I'm riding.

    To give an idea of my level of tech savvy, I still write my turns on a piece of wide masking tape and stick it on the gas tank when travelling.  If I figure out the rest of this, I might just join the 1990's and get a GPS.

    I am not familiar with the 5 as I am using the sena 20s.  You might find this helpful.

    https://www.revzilla.com/assets/0000/8415/sena_smh5_bluetooth_headset_dual_pack_wired_mic.pdf

    On the 20s I am running two Bluetooth connections.  Phone directly to sena and triumph directly to sena.  In addition, I am paired with my buddies sena.

    If I elected not to have my phone connected I would not have to "unpair" I could simply turn off the Bluetooth on the phone.

    The 20s has many more features, but I think the basic functionality that I described will also be applicable to the smh-5.

    I read the Revzilla review, along with many others.  The idea of pairing the phone with the headset instead of with the Trophy would solve the two bike issue, and then the phone would be operated solely by the headset on either bike, right?  That sounds simple enough.

    Yes, the pairing takes place directly from phone to headset, completely independent of bike...as long as that headset allows you to pair two devices.  That link should take you to the sena comparison chart

    ...ok I found it.  That device allows second phone pairing, just like the 20s

    One more thing to consider :

    Check that whatever Make and Model of Phone you are using
    is compatible with whichever Helmet Headset you choose,
    for making and receiving phone calls, if that is what you want to do.

    Also, when on the Trophy, you could additionally pair your wife's Headset to the Trophy,
    so she can hear the radio etc too, or it could be paired to her own Music playing device
    such as an iPod / iPhone etc, in addition to the Intecrcom feature between both headsets.

    I *think* I'm getting a handle on this.  I think the Sena 10S would work better, if only for the longer battery life.  I'm thinking my wife and I would both pair our headsets with the bike and our phones, and with each another.  I think that would allow both of us to listen to music, use our phones, and talk to each other.  Also, when I'm on the other non-bluetooth bike, I could listen to the radio and answer my phone through the headset.

    Does that seem right?

    I'm guessing my plan is either so obviously the way it should work that no comment is required, or so profoundly stupid everyone is too embarrassed to point it out.  :745:
