New Sena 50S/R Headsets With Next-Gen 2.0 Mesh Tech Released

Sena's headsets get better connectivity and speakers, faster charging & more!

Published on 04.17.2020

The highly-anticipated Sena 50R and 50S have arrived in North America and will soon be available globally. The 50 Series headsets are Sena’s new Bluetooth 5 flagship communication devices featuring a more reliable next generation Mesh 2.0 Intercom technology. 

A More Robust Mesh 2.0 Intercom

Tested by over one hundred of the world’s top ADV riders during the arduous Int.GS Trophy 2020, Sena’s Mesh 2.0 Intercom brings a new level of robust, reliable connections and flexible network message routing to the 50S and 50R thanks to significant technical enhancements made to the original Sena Mesh Intercom algorithm.

According to Sena, Mesh 2.0 Intercom transfers up to 80% more data between headsets, even in harsh environments, resulting in clear and crisp conversation. Mesh 2.0 technology offers a significantly better level of intercom audio quality and robust connectivity.

50R and 50S users will also benefit from the two innovative Mesh 2.0 Intercom modes: Multi-Channel Open Mesh Intercom and Group Mesh Intercom. Similar to standard handheld or CB radios, Multi-Channel Open Mesh Intercom mode features the industry’s first mesh intercom function which allows users to switch between nine different channels. Open Mesh also supports a near-limitless number of users within a range of up to 5 miles / 8 km (min. 6 riders @ 1 mi / 1.6 km intervals) and one-click-to-connect allows users to join Open Mesh conversations with the single click of a button. Alternatively, Group Mesh Intercom mode allows for a private conversation with up to 24 users.

Given Sena’s habit of falsifying specifications, I believe about 50% of this article.

I would also like to read about some premium stabilized camera systems, please.

These guys have suckered me for the last time. I’ve moved on to Cardo JBL Packtalk. As Jude referenced, I believe 50%, no 22% of this article!
