The 7 Best Bluetooth Motorcycle Helmet Headsets January, 2019 (And 9 Other Models)
Bluetooth motorcycle helmet headsets are designed to be attached to the helmet. They come with special installation kits (clamp units, mounting plates, and clip spacers are some of the basics), but some models are plainly composed of a boom mic and speaker.
These Bluetooth headsets for motorcycles are not to be confused with "helmet speakers", which are basically a primal version without the main intercom feature (they are simply speakers). Each model also has a specific top speed it can withstand and they vary in intercom ranges, which can go from 150 meters to as high as 800 meters. Some only offer two-way intercoms, while other headsets can support up to four bikers or more.
Higher-end models, like the Sena SMH5-01, also offer music-sharing capabilities and a multifunction jog dial meant for easier usability. Some of the rather common features also include GPS transmission and hands-free phone use. Despite these variations, all motorcycle headsets are generally rugged and used for long-range communication.
Based on this bluetooth headset's aggregated ranking of 86%, we are confident that the Sena SMH5 is currently Alphachooser's best Bluetooth motorcycle headset 2019. Furthermore, we think that our 944 reviews sampled from our sources give us a high confidence level (more on confidence levels) that pushes us to label it a "no-brainer best choice."
