Sena 20S Single Pack
Manufacturer details: SENA
SENA - Bluetooth Innovator in the Motorcycle and Outdoor Activities
SENA has been developing and producing wireless Bluetooth communication systems for industry since 1998. As the company boss is a biker himself and was dissatisfied with the Bluetooth headsets from other manufacturers, Sena also began producing communication solutions for bikers in 2010. The devices developed from practical experience are already well established on the US market and have won numerous independent comparative tests, not least because they are extremely simple and intuitive to use. Even when wearing motorbike gloves, it's easy to find the ingenious JogDial/push button at full speed instead of having to search for lots of different buttons. We are pleased that we are now also able to offer sophisticated Sena communication systems in Germany.

Sena 20S Single Pack
Sena 20S - Bluetooth Headset
(individual unit with removable wired and boom microphone)
The 20S is the ultra-modern Bluetooth communication system for bikers from Sena. It is the only headset of its kind to offer the unique dual-module architecture from Sena. The state-of-the-art technology combines higher capacity and faster speed, enabling you to easily run several applications in parallel.
The Sena 20S Audio Multitasking technology allows you to have a conversation via the hands-free intercom at the same time as listening to music or radio or while using your GPS sat nav. At last, annoying interruptions to audio functions, familiar from earlier Bluetooth devices, are a thing of the past. Now you can enjoy a superior audio experience because the audio functions are simply overlaid instead of being interrupted. So your journey is enhanced by seamless blending of the audio sources!
You can communicate with up to seven other riders over a range of up to 2 km, reliably and with crystal-clear HD audio quality. The 20S also enables group management so that you can divide the users into groups and distinguish them accordingly.
The Sena Smartphone App allows you to configure the device settings (e.g. by entering a group of biker friends for the hands-free intercom) and to take a look in the quick-start guide. Simply pair your mobile phone with your 20S headset and execute the Sena Smartphone App. You can then enter the settings direct from your smartphone.
The 20S supports Bluetooth audio recordings for the Sena Bluetooth audio package for GoPro and the Sena Prism Bluetooth action camera. In this way, two or more people can give their spoken commentaries, and these are reproduced in HD quality via hands-free intercom.
The Sena 20S delivers HD-quality sound, which is clear, precise and pleasant to listen to in every situation. The integrated audio booster offers optimal sound quality, even in loud surroundings, and you can enjoy enhanced sound at all levels thanks to the advanced sound technology. A dual microphone is also available. One microphone is mounted inside the helmet for the hands-free intercom, while the second mike is for the clamping unit, enabling you to hear surrounding sounds without having to remove your helmet. The dual microphone provides a useful extra function for the rider and enhances the riding experience.
The movement sensor technology from Sena means that installing, setting and pairing up your 20S could not be easier. To connect your Bluetooth devices, you simply give the 20S a shake. As soon as you're on the move, the 20S is controlled entirely via hands-free voice commands.
Universal attachment with clamping and/or adhesive mount plus the replaceable wired and boom microphone mean the S20 can be used with virtually any helmet, whether jet (open-face), flip-up or full-face.
