The Sena INC Helmet will be available later this year in a full face version. We will release different types of helmet designs (modular, dual sport, etc.) later on in the future.

I bought a set of Sena 20s headsets but would like to be able to hear the audio from the bike's radio/CB in the headsets. I know the Sent freewire just came out for bluetooth but looking for a less expensive option for now like a cable. Wondering if I can do this with a cable and what cable I need.

Soap Box ON: Sena recently released its Android App and Utility App, however, for those of us that bought in and supported Sena in the early days (WAY back in 2012!) by purchasing their SMH10 and SM10 units "Model SMH10B", well we've been left in the dust. The app developers began their support at the SMH10C with no further backward compatibility. And, even more of a kick in the shorts, there is no trade-in or upgrade program available (currently, at least). Perhaps Sena would be so kind as to re-think this a bit. Soap Box OFF.

~1971: '67 Sears 124 (Ducati, Bultaco, Puch??)
~1976: '73 Yamaha 350
~1980: '74 Honda 750 Four + (2) '79 Honda Hobbits (thankfully ended in divorce)
~1983: '80 GoldWing (Vetter fairing, soft bags, Corbin seat, trailer)

The 20S was the first product that we released that is compatible with the Sena Smartphone App. This was due to this headset using Bluetooth 4.0 and was designed with the necessary hardware installed to communicate with an Android or iPhone app on a smartphone. All headsets that have been released since the 20S, like the 10S, 10C etc., and all future product releases are designed to be compatible with the Sena Smartphone App.

All Sena headsets prior to the 20S, like the SMH10, do not support the Sena Smartphone App because those products are using Bluetooth 3.0 and don't have the necessary hardware installed to be compatible with the Sena Smartphone App.


All of the headsets including the SMH10 are compatible with our recent RideConnected App on Android and iPhones but the headsets that use Bluetooth 3.0 have limited button functionality compared to those that use Bluetooth 4.0.

We provide wired alternative to the FreeWire for the 20S, which is a 20S clamp kit accessory with a cable specifically for the Gold Wing that you can use to listen to your bike's radio and communicate through the CB.

The SMH10 is not compatible with the FreeWire. Only Sena headsets that use Bluetooth 4.1+ are compatible.
