Wife and I use the Sena SMH5. Had it for about 5 years. Works pretty good even with my hearing loss from flying helicopters.

FortNine just recently did an interesting comparison of various comm systems
Verrry eeeenteresting. Explains something I was wondering about.

It seems that the battery life claims are made at a specific and uselessly low volume level, across the board.

I suppose that's why I only got 3-4 hours out of devices that claimed "10 hours" plus of continuous play time.

60 dB (the volume level used in the video) is not very loud. It's fine for normal conversation - unless you're dealing with wind noise and perhaps trying to listen through earplugs (so that the wind noise doesn't damage your hearing).

Naturally the device is going to use more power to generate a higher volume level.

This is why the ability to charge while in use, matters.

I use Plugfones, corded with a Jumbl controller. Had the in helmet unit, but only used it for music and GPS. I also had to have the volume up the whole way to hear over my foam earplugs. With this set up, I can control volume, play/pause, and track skip from the controller attached to my tank bag.

I have been using the Liberate 2.0 Plugfones for a few years now (Guardian Plus is available for a cheaper corded option). They are only used to listen to music or podcasts (low volume) and provide hearing protection.
GPSr and phone are routed through the Sena. I also understand and accept the risks of using "ear plugs" in certain jurisdictions (my hearing is a priority to me).
