I will say that with the stock rubber ear buds did get "itchy" after a few hours. And I didn't like the foam ones it came with.

It's very subjective. But I really liked them. Except the wires of course. But I think Jon mentioned a work around for that now.

Up to 80mph they work fine in my Nolan helmet but over 75 to 80 the helmet wind noise overpowers the music but not the phone calls, except for classical music you lose that at around 50mph but not all helmets are the same.

I find the intercomm feature extremely useful when group riding. You can use it to point out points of interest instead of using your finger or foot. When you're alone it doesn't interfere with the voices in your head.

My Sena 10R battery has lasted all day but recharging it with a wall charger can take up to four hours. However, you can charge it while in use on the bike if you have the auto adapter or USB cord. I have a Battery Tender USB adapter to work with their pigtail coming up from the pillion seat.

I am not in any way affilated with the seller.
Grabbed a pair. I got a nice pair of IEM earlier this year, but they are just a bit too much for wearing under a helmet. These have been very comfy though!
