blue tooth helmet speakers?

I would like to try some blue tooth helmet speakers in my full face Arai helmet. Any suggestions?

Sena is the favored choice this year, not to be confused with senna.

I have an SMH-10 and love it. It installs in only a couple minutes, it's plenty loud, the controls are easy and useful and the battery life is great. How they control all the wind and motor noise, I'll never know. When I talk to people on the phone on the interstate, it's so loud that I can't hear myself talk, but they can hear me clearly.

SMH-10

+1 for SMH-10. If you are looking to save some bucks, you could take a look at Sena SMH 5 too.

SMH5 is smaller in size compared to SMH10. So, if you wear thick gloves SMH10 is easier to operate. SMH10 is more oriented for group rides (with its conferencing capabilities and larger range). SMH10 also has a bigger better. Despite all this, SMH5 is a good deal too.

And, SMH5 comes in a FM model too - SMH5FM .

I know this sounds a bit strange but does anyone use earplugs along with helmet speakers? I like the benefit of earplugs but I also like music. I'm using Jamplugs now which work okay but it would be nice to eliminate the cable altogether. I don't need the music to be too loud.

I ride with foam earplugs and the SMH10 is loud enough that you'll hear it at a normal volume through the plugs. I think it actually sounds better with earplugs in... I'm not sure why.
