MULTI-CHANNEL COMMUNICATION AND PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS
The 50S delivers not one, but three different intercom modes available to Sena riders: Multi-Channel Open Mesh Intercom™, Group Mesh Intercom™, and Bluetooth Intercom.
Multi-Channel Open Mesh Intercom (Open Mesh) features the industry’s first Mesh Intercom™ channel system. Similar to standard handheld or CB radios, the 50S Mesh 2.0 system allows users to switch between nine different channels. Open Mesh offers a simple, single push of a button to click-to-connect to the Mesh 2.0 intercom network. It 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) With this ease of connecting, huge user capacity, incredible range, AND the inclusion of the nine-channel feature, the 50S Open Mesh Intercom mode is sure to be a game-changer for those large group/club rides.
If you prefer a private group conversation, simply switch to Group Mesh Intercom mode. Group Mesh supports a single, private group for up to 24 participants and the same amazing range as Open Mesh. To ensure privacy, only invited users can join the Group Mesh chat. Whichever of the two Mesh Intercom™ modes you choose, you’ll enjoy the robust reliability engineered into Sena’s new Mesh 2.0 network.
Finally, and as always, the traditional four-way Bluetooth Intercom mode continues to be an option for connecting other Sena Bluetooth-enabled users within a 1.2-mile range. Additionally, 50S users can pair with a Sena Bluetooth Intercom user and ‘bridge’ them into a Mesh 2.0 intercom conversation!
THE NEW STANDARD FOR RIDER COMMUNICATIONS
MESH 2.0 Mesh 2.0 brings a new level of robust, reliable connections and smart, flexible intercom message routing. Sena’s 50S units actively share information between each other within the Mesh 2.0 network at an astounding rate. An ingenious system of prompts and responses between the Mesh 2.0 units has resulted in 80% more data being transferred across challenging and harsh conditions. Furthermore, Mesh 2.0 units quickly determine the ideal pathway to efficiently transmit messages from rider to rider.
The results translate into an unprecedented level of intercom audio quality and robust connectivity .
Tested and proven in the most demanding situations, Sena’s Mesh 2.0 network keeps the communication lines with your fellow riders clear and stable.
POWERFULLY CLEAR AND COMFORTABLE HD SPEAKERS
The all-new 50S speakers are optimized for both powerful and clear audio performance while also being completely redesigned for more physical comfort. With a marked increase in volume and bass boost, these all-new HD speakers will rock you.
The speakers incorporate a clever beveled taper, reducing potential ear-to-edge chafe, and as always, easily fit into existing helmet speaker pockets. More volume! More bass! More clarity!
TAKE CONTROL ON YOUR RIDE WITH VOICE COMMANDS
There’s no need to lift a finger when you can ask the 50S to handle it. Voice commands give you control of Sena’s 50S system functions, such as answering the phone or starting up a Group Mesh session.
The 50S supports these system voice commands across eight languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian!
But what if you’re running low on gas? “Hey Google, please give me directions to the nearest gas station.” The 50S can connect to Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri with just a simple voice command allowing you to tap into the power of your smartphone’s features, including GPS navigation, music playback, voice dialing, or a myriad of other options. Wondering where the nearest BBQ joint is? Need to find a hotel for the night? Want to listen to your favorite band? Whatever it is, all you need to do is ask: “Hey Siri” or “Hey Google”! THIS is how to #RIDECONNECTED

Differences between the 50S and 50R
The 50S has a slightly thicker form factor than the 50R and connects to the helmet via a clamped base ( the same base as the Sena 30K ).
This base has an integrated boom microphone, as well as 2 additional mics as standard : wired boom mic & a wired button mic.
There is also a 3.5mm port for earbuds integrated into the base of the 50S ( to use earbuds on the 50R will require the optional 10R Earbud Adapter Split Cable (part #: 10R-A0101).
The 50S is operated vis Sena’s tired and tested glove friendly Jog dial.
You’re going to get an hour more talk time from the 50S battery as opposed to the smaller, sleeker battery on the 50R.
The 50R is the slimmer of the two units and is designed for off road users who wear neck braces, such as the Leat brace. It connects to the helmet either via non destructive 3M adhesive tape or removable Velcro (both options supplied). This allows for the 50R to be flush with the bottom of the helmet and it will not interfere with a neck brace.
The 50R is operated via three ultra-low-profile buttons, making it further streamlined. Contributing further to its reduced form factor are two included microphones : a wired boom mic & a wired button mic.
Both house Sena’s most up-to-date tech in both hardware and software.
Both are incredible pieces of class leading machinery.
