Now I have to wonder if they are going to charge for the firmware upgrade for the new units to actually work like the old ones did.

Not sure I follow you here. Are you saying the new units don't work like the old ones did? In a negative sort of way?

According to their site, there should be a firmware update coming out this month.  Other than that, they should be up to date.

For those that did receive the upgrade, are they working just as good or even better than the old units?

Mine works better, no buzzing when I use the earbuds. The sound seems louder but it may just be me but they do claim a sound booster but no way to turn it off or on, it is just there.  Overall I am happy with the upgrade

That's what I'm saying.  The intercom seems to work ok, but my phone is now useless with the "upgrade"

I'm so pissed. I just ordered my set from Amazon and what do I get, the older model.
Now I have to shell out another $49 to get current.
Now I just hope I can get the new kit soon since I leave on the 21st for my two up ride.

Crap, San Jose? I probably could have driven down there and traded them out. Crapper.

Just used the upgraded unit today.  Had to reacquaint the blue tooth connection with my phone.  Didn't want to use the old one.  Must be a new code or they are unique to the head unit.  Plugged my mp3 player into it as well.  Works fine so far.  More testing tomorrow.

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.
