Received my upgraded SMH-10 and it works great. The sound seems to be MUCH better, which may be partially due to the new headset/boom microphone attachment I ordered with it. The mic is far more sturdy and beefier than the previous unit, and the speakers seem a bit larger. In any event, they sound is very, very good. I also put some foam padding behind the speakers, effectively pushing them closer to my ears, which has the effect of making the speakers louder and clearer, and also helps block out wind noise when I'm not using the speakers. It does make putting the helmet on a little trickier, but I've adjusted and it's not a problem.

That's not a bad idea, putting foam behind the speakers.  I'll do that one.

1. Download Updater
2. Connect SMH-10
3. Install Updater
4. When the updater says to, turn on the SMH-10 to install the driver
5. Run the updater
6. Click "F/W Update"; the updater will open a location to store it
7. When the updater says to, hold down the Phone button
8. When the updater says to, hold down the phone & jog buttons

   That's it; update complete. There's an interesting button labelled "Device Settings" in the updater; one of the choices is "EDR" (extended dynamic range?). I wonder what shutting that off does, and I wonder if Sena will be able to offer a way to set priority based on individual devices? Hmmm...

Got my replacement units in today.  Probably because I think it will be better, but I swear there is more volume than before.

I believe there is, it's one of the improvements. I got my refund the same day they received my old unit also.

Trying to order a set today...and says it is in backorder... :(

Was wanting to send my old unit back first since money is a bit tight. But seems I will have to pay the deposit as I do not want to be without them.

FYI.....the program necessary to download in order to update the firmware is for Windows only.
If you only have a Mac, like me, you're SOL. I didn't know that when I made the upgrade. Dude I spoke to at Sena was very nice but not very positive about a Mac version coming out any time soon. Stoopid Mac. I bought into the kool-aid and have regretted it ever since.

As far as I know the program has ended.  Hope everyone using this headset got their upgrades.

Sena SMH-10B update (version 3.2)
« Reply #40 on: September 27, 2011, 08:40:12 pm »
   If you have the software-upgradeable version of the SMH-10 (the "B" model, with a mini-USB port for charging instead of a coaxial one) there's an update available to firmware version 3.2. Everything you need is here:

Sena support page

   I think you also need version 1.1 of the updater, which is on that page too.

We've got a thread devoted to that and I'm moving this post there... 

I just updated mine to 3.1 a few days ago.  Must have just missed it.

Thanks for bringing that to our attention.

I actually got mine from Amazon yesterday and loaded the update last night. For those with a Mac, I did mine on the Mac via Parallels with XP installed.
