webBikeWorld Sena 3S Intercom Review

Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' started by NetriderBot, Apr 9, 2015.

  1. Simple is good (or better) and the new Sena 3S is that for sure. The cuteness factor is a result of two words: "tiny" and "light".

    Intercoms just work nowadays without much differentiation, so maybe the best thing about the 3S is how easy it is to use. Only 2 buttons control the works.

    There are two versions available: the 3S-B with a boom mic or the 3S-W with a - you guessed it - Lilliputian microphone. There's an issue related to that and we'll get into it in this review.

    There is no intercom module per se with the 3S. The batteries are contained in the speakers and the on/off and control buttons - all 2 of them - are on a sliver of a stick-on (3S-w) or built into the mic on the boom version.

    The 3S may not have all the bells-and-whistles but...who needs 'em? You want to talk; listen to music and some crazy people even want to take a phone call while they're riding. Check, check and check.

    And Bluetooth 3.0 means faster data rates and lower power consumption -- both very good things.

    Love the quote that the sena 3S is as " cute as lace pants" ...they obviously weren't referring to mine lol!
  4. So, are the batteries replaceable? If not, be prepared to have to buy a new unit sooner than you'd like.
