BT-S2 communicator

I've seen a couple videos on YouTube comparing the BT-S2 communicator to the Sena SMH10. The videos say that its about 80% as good as the Sena. Most of the complaints come in the aspect of the user interface rather then the actual audio, mic, or connect-ability. The BT-S2 is about $40 where the Sena runs about $155. At that low of a price I think I could deal with the user interface issues.

Has any one every used or own the BT-S2 communicator, Or any other cheaper alternatives to the Sena? I feel like I'd get more of an honest review from someone on this site then a youtube video.

I currently own the bt-S2. It is honestly not bad for the price. If you are a casual rider I'd say go for it. If you ride every day all year round, buy a better system.

It charges from the same port that connects to the headset inside the helmet. The battery at least on mine does not last 12 hours as stated on the box, but I do get 5-6 hrs out of it.the sound quality is acceptable.

Further, BT-S3 is out now. So if you are gonna get one get it over BT-S2

Ordered a pair. One was broken right outta the box. Had to pay another 20 to get it replaced. They were glitchy but I could talk to my spouse on the back and hear GPS. Never did get them to play music that both of us could hear. After maybe 12 hours of use one would die really quick, like 4 hours. Then the other stopped charging. We were half way across Canada now with no com's. Ordered the cheapest set of Senas and had them delivered to a destination down the road. Got'm charged'm and tossed the BTS2's in the bin. So in my opinion buy the Senas.

For some reason the Chinese units dont like rider to rider communication. I simply use mine for phone calls and listening to music. It at least does those 2 things decently for me. My next purchase will certainly be a Sena though. There is a reason why they cost more, its.cause they are reliable.
