Smile Sena 30K

I bought the first HD Branded Sena 30K sold at my local dealer and a Shark Evo 3 helmet. I always used a Half Helmet but the wind noise drowns out my radio. Looking forward to the new experience.

Hope yours is better than mine. I tired the 30K and the 20S and couldn't hear squat above 40 mph with a full face helmet ended up sending them both back to Amazon. I used a Sena SMH10R for 3 years before it broke and loved it. Thinking about trying a Scala next, but they don't have a model that fits in my new Bell helmet.

Are they rain proof now like the Cardo units?

I will upgrade to the 30K when my 20S gives up the ghost. I rode for 2 straight days in the rain in Seattle in 2016. I had to clean the contacts with an alcohol pad, but the unit worked flawlessly and I still use it for ~20K miles a year.

They aren't rated for rain, but I never had an issue.

I had to move the speakers in my helmet a couple of times to get them to center in my ears. Now I have no issues hearing.
