SAN JOSE, Calif. - Designed specifically for half helmets, the new SPH10H Bluetooth stereo headset and intercom from Sena Technologies allows riders to make wireless mobile calls, listen to music or get audio GPS navigation.

The unique ear flap design of the new model is built to tuck into the straps of a half helmet. The SPH10H also allows riders to talk among themselves via the four-way Bluetooth intercom system.

The SPH10H’s sweat- and water-resistant design provides a stable and secure fit so motorcycle and scooter riders do not have to worry about the unit or its microphone slipping, the company reports. The ear flap design can also be used with other shorty helmets, like those used by bicyclists, skateboarders and other outdoor enthusiasts.

The unit is equipped with Sena's Jog Dial for easy headset controls. The unit’s battery is long-lasting and keeps the headset charged for up to 10 hours of talk time and seven days of standby time.??

Thanks to Bluetooth specification 3.0 and advanced digital processing technology, the SPH10H provides Bluetooth intercom up to 500 meters (5400 yards/0.30 miles) in open terrain. As technology upgrades for the SPH10H are developed and become available, users may download and install the latest firmware at no charge, the company says.?

The SPH10H comes with a two-year international warranty and Sena provides tech support for any questions.
