The Sena 3S (photos below) was also announced at the 2014 AIMExpo.
The Sena 3S is another “self-contained” intercom that includes a Bluetooth 3.0 stereo headset and Bluetooth intercom designed specifically for motorcycles and entry level riders.
The Sena 3S is the second generation of a similar intercom system designed for Nexx, the Nexx SX-Com (review).
While the 3S may not have all the features of higher-end intercom communications systems like the Sena SMH10B (review), the Sena 20S (review) or others, it has “everything you need and nothing you don’t”. Sometimes, simpler is better.
With the 3S, users can call hands free on Bluetooth mobile phone, listen to stereo music, and have two-way intercom conversations in full duplex with a passenger or other riders. Also, the easy-to-access and intuitive two-button operations make the 3S a perfect companion for motorcycles.
The easy-to-use design is tailored to entry-level riders and those new to Bluetooth communication devices.
The Sena 3S will be available in two models: the 3S-B and 3S-W. The 3S-B is the Sena 3S Bluetooth Headset and Intercom with a boom microphone kit, while the 3S-W is the Sena 3S Bluetooth Headset and Intercom with a wired microphone kit designed for full-face helmets.
With the boom mic, the two-button control base is built into the microphone, while the wireless microphone kit has the control pad separate from the mic for ease of use.
