Default Fixing the Sena SMH10

Last year my wife bought me a Sena SMH10 Dual pack for my birthday.
We read all the reviews on how great these were blah, blah, blah....We both generally wear open face helmets and due to excessive wind, exhaust and other background noise we basically have not been able to use the units since the purchase. I've been back and forth with Sena Tech Support, have been sent two replacement sets and tried every trick in the book...nada.
Until one of the Tech guys recommended I try Windsock Wind Deflectors from L&T Enterprises..... I bought two of the WD30's and I'm happy to report they worked like a charm....comms were perectly clear at all speeds and this size doesn't look too bad on the boom end.

I opted for the sena 20 dual pack and it came with wind socks. Had to use them too as without them has a lot of noise.

I was told the WD20 would work, but I don't think so or it will be crazy tight. The WD30 is a good fit over the mic and foam(I used the foam L&T sent) plus the WD30 comes with a backing disk which is added noise protection.

Looks like a much better idea than the plastic picnic spoon that I have covering the windward side of my mics.
