Question Half helmet Intercom Options?

Looking for an intercom option for our half helmets? Just curious as to what others have found to be cost efficient in light of performance, clarity and overall functionality?

I've been looking at SENA's options (SPH10, SMH10, Sena20S Evo, etc.)

Please share your choice and experiences.

Thank you in advance for your time and willingness to share.

Stay safe everyone!!!

FX4 has the Sena20 and does not like it. Had lots of issues with it during our ride this past weekend. I use the Uclear HBC100plus, but that requires at least a 3/4 helmet.

I think one might be hard pressed to find something good for a half helmet.
Maybe something based around ear buds.

I know they make a kit with the speaker pouches for half helmets. But I wonder how good they'd work with the wind blowing through.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Might be a good reason to get a helmet with better protection.

They're just flaps that cover your ears with speaker pockets. These flaps fasten onto the "Y" straps that attach the chin straps.
