Sena (or similar) helmets with communications

Any users of Sena helmets with communications built in? From what little Iím finding it seems like a pretty effective tool but always interested in what other users have to say.

My wife and I use SENA Bluetooth units in my motorcycle helmet. Fantastic tech for music playback, phone calls, and rider-to-pillion (or rider-to-rider) communication.

I've never felt the need for that level of communication system in my bicycle helmet though.

I had the sena for my motorcycle works great.

A friend of mine has the one for the bicycle and he seems to like it just fine.

My son and I use the Zello app on our phones. It essentially makes your phone act like a walkie-talkie and anyone you put in the contact list will hear what you say if they are also logged in. Other walkie-talkie apps exist too. And you can pair a bluetooth headset with the phone so you don't have to get it out of your pocket.

So no need for a special helmet.
