    Default Which headset

    Please forgive my ignorance on Bluetooth headsets, I had always used wired headsets on my Harley
    I wish to get a blue tooth headset that will work with my 2019 Spyder RTL. My purpose is to listen to Sirius xm app connected by Bluetooth to the Spyder,

    What headset do you recommend

    Thanks

    Everything that I have read gives both the Sena and the Cardo high marks.
    I am not impressed with the fact that the Sena is not waterproof.
    How do people deal with that ?

    I asked Sena about the water resistance of the 20S and they said it is similar to the SMH10. The 20S intercom module is weather-resistant, but not waterproof, which means it should be fine for rain use but not total immersion

    Good question, Sena I think is by far the most popular and some like the Cardo. Few other brands have been mentioned. So you Have to shop a little; Sena has a large line of products to chose from that's for sure, even have some nice head sets with cameras built in and they sell helmets also with everything built in if you want to go that way. Sena and Cardo will sell blue tooth head sets in pairs so you can save a little if you want to talk to your passenger. lots of models to look at psst I like Sena but have not tried Cardo so I can not say anything bad about them. Good Luck Shopping!!

    Thanks to everyone who replied. I have sent an email to motorcycle Dave and I have started researching Sean and cardio
    Thanks again as I had no idea where to begin until I received your responses

    I've owned 3 Senas and now running a Cardio Packtalk Bold. I MUCH prefer the Packtalk, everything about it is top notch, and the audio quality is far better ---noting I have the JBL version. The only reason to get a Sena IMO is if you ride allot with other Senas, then pairing may be easier. That said, the Packtalk has multiple pair modes including some better mesh options, so will still talk with a Sena. I would give my Packtalk an A-, my Senas were a solid B (so not bad).

    If you are using it primarily to listen to music, you could also consider the Uclear Pro series. Former. They have excellent speakers, and the microphones (dual), are located inside your helmet in the temple area, so you don’t have that boom hanging out, which really annoys me.

    This Fortnine video about communicators just came out today. Some nice info about more communicators than I knew there were available.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uevmJCDXlME&t=306s
    This is mostly about mid-range communicators, which are good for most folks in small groups. They had a previous vedeo Sena vs. Cardo in 2018 and in the beginning of this one they refer to it. At the time the first one came out they liked the Cardo over Sena, mostly because then Sena didn't have MESH technology, and was less water resistant.

    Another vote for the 20S EVO. Good stuff.
