Thanks for the input so far everyone.... I have been looking at the scala G9 and the Interphone f5s. Have used the chatterbox frs2. It is a little bulky and doesn't have Bluetooth capabilities. Simplex communication only ( which is hard for some people to grasp ( I.E. my girlfriend ) thank go she doesn't belong to this forum)....I like the unlimited amount of users for the chatterbox but for someone not used to communicating via radio it can get difficult and frustrating for everyone on the same freq/channel....

I am about to order the SENA SMH10R, just because I like the slim design. I don't want a big ugly thing sticking out from my helmet.

I am leaning towards the interphone F5/F5s. Seems to work well in " intercom mode" and has text to speech for incoming caller I.D. On my cell. Very slim design. Still waiting for more input from others though....

On the sena website the headset looks like it is made for an open face helmet with a fixed microphone. How does it fit? Is it comfortable?

I have a chatterbox set up in my agv grid and the earphones smash my ears and the microphone presses against my lip. Unfortunately my size was between a L and XL helmet and I opted for the smaller one. I may be out if luck here.

The Sena's speakers are slim, and slip easily behind the padding in my Arai's (and Shoei's for my beemer). The boom wraps under the chin guard and is inside the helmet in front of my mouth (lower picture).

the SCALA G9 is no bigger than your Sena, that G9 connects up to 8 people, beside bluetooth, gps, mp3 etc etc, scala rider .

The Sena can do 4 (plus blue, etc), not sure when I would find 3 others on the same ride, that have Sena and want to take the time to pair at the beginning of the ride, much less 8! I think the controls and have heard the range is better on the Sena. Both are very good generally.

Does the wind push your helmet sideways at speed with the external solutions? (Sena, Chatterbox)
