Sena 10 question

I'm getting a new helmet and am wondering if when I move my Sena 10S to it's new home can I not use the speakers and just plug in ear buds? I'm under the impression you have to use the speakers. Thanks

OK...forgot to tell you that the new helmet is a HJC i70. And another question is what earbuds work good with the Sena 10S?

Any earbuds that fit under helmet.

Make sure they donít smash into your ears if you are hit on side of helmet.

Check the new Sena modular helmet c/w communication set built in selling at US $199, it seems like a smoking deal

Not familiar with Sena 10, but if it has an earphone out, then plug in earbuds. If the speakers have a jack, you could pull that out and plug in earbuds. If no earphone out and speakers are hardwired, then you need a different unit.

I know my Sena 10S can do ear buds, but not sure about my SMH10, but I don't think it would

The earphone jack, speakers, and microphone are located in the mounted base, not the 10s itself. You could remove the speakers as they have a plug between the base and the speaker. Unless the speakers themselves are bothering your ears when wearing the helmet, I'm not sure what you would gain. I often run earbuds but never really noticed if the speakers were still functioning.

I always wear earplugs when I rdie and the speakers are too close to my earplugs and cause some soreness on long rides with my old HJC helmet. Just looking for options that I can use with my new HJC helmet.

Newer helmets have pockets for the speakers to sit in. I am sure your HJC has them.

You can also experiment with ear plugs for a more comfortable fit. The EXTRA soft ones are best.

A properly installed ear plug should not extend past your tragus. Or very close to it. When inserting the ear plug, reach over the top of your head with your off hand. The pull up on the top of your ear while inserting the plug. This will straighten your ear canal for better insertion.

Wearing earplugs is something you become accustomed to.
