Can the Sena's pair with other models. IE, SMH10 pair with the 20s?

Yes they can pair with other models very easily. They can also pair with other Bluetooth devices (mine is paired to my radar detector). You can pair them to other brands as well. I have not been able to work out Bluetooth sharing between my 20S and a friend's SMH10. Not saying it doesn't work, just saying I couldn't figure it out.

Are you absolutely sure?

I was positive that the SMH10s did not have music sharing capabilities, and that only the 20S did. I could be wrong, but I was quite certain.

No, Just earplugs-

I tried to do the music things but I found it too uncomfortable not being able to hear the constant Whistling/Whine from the Intake and the Straight cut gears when traveling on the freeway.

+1

I Use a Q3 Scalla Rider Headset with Blue Tooth to micro SD card in GPS....Good tunes, good sound quality, and the advantage of communicating
with another rider with a like headset, and GPS directions all simultaneously.

I used to ride with music, but I feel more "in the zone" when I can fully hear my bike. If I was cruising/getting lost I might listen to music.

For spirited rides - ear plugs.

I tried riding while listening to music....once. I listened for about 5 minutes before I pulled over and took the headphones out. Never did it again. I just felt way too disconnected from my riding.

Depends on the pace. Chilling and cruising yes, pushing a bit no. I wear ear plugs and between the bike and wind, at a certain speed its all too much for the Sena 10R to overcome.

I always ride with music. Sena smh10 with in ear buds. It is magical.

My "ride" mix varies between Richard Wagner and Ramstein.

Update: music helps me hyper-focus, so if I was in a high stress situation and I needed to turn on "hyper-focus", music would be on.

I've never been in a drawn out high stress situation on the bike though.

In college I could only paint for long periods of time with music, and I constantly have music on when I'm data crunching away at work. When I'm on the bike I tend to just unwind and relax, with an occasional WOT when no one's really around.

I've ridden on the street for 12+ years. Until recent last few years I had not listened too music b/c I was under the impression it would distract me or keep me from hearing noises from my bike or traffic. All wrong assumptions, now I don't think i would enjoy riding without music. The hard part is finding comfortable ear buds to work with the pressure your helmet puts on your ears.

Might be a bit expensive but consider the Sena Bluetooth series. no wires..unless you dont wear a helmet.

I have the Sena SMH10 and i love it. make calls, listen to music, GPS, all in what seems like surround sound.

no music while riding here. i have tried both speakers and headphones, and both have their pros and cons. riding with music tends to put me in a more relaxed state and i tend to get sloppy on the bike.

I use Soundmagic E30s. You can't even feel them. If you get them, don't use the little plastic guide that shapes them around your ear--just use the wire itself. They're perfect, and cheap.
