Comparison between SPH10 and 2Talks headsets.

 

SPH10 Bluetooth Headsets:

Communication Method:
The SPH10 headsets utilize traditional Bluetooth technology for direct peer-to-peer communication. This requires manual pairing between individual headsets.

Number of Connections:
Up to 4 devices can be paired simultaneously, allowing for small group communication. This is ideal for crews who need to stay connected within a limited range.

Security:
Communication is securely established between paired devices, ensuring private conversations.

Range:
The SPH10 headsets provide a practical range of up to 500 ft under optimal conditions. This makes them suitable for various boat sizes and typical cruising scenarios.

Compatibility:
These headsets can pair with other Sena devices (such as 2Talk, Expand, and Tufftalks) and Bluetooth-enabled devices like smartphones, allowing for versatility in communication options.

Design:
Featuring an over-the-ear design/behind the neck design, the SPH10 headsets come with dual speakers for enhanced audio clarity and comfort. The volume control is a dial knob to increase or decrease the volume.

Battery:
They offer up to 8 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, which takes approximately 2.5 hours.

 

2Talk Bluetooth Headsets:

Communication Method:
The 2Talk headsets also use traditional Bluetooth technology for direct communication. Pairing between headsets is necessary before they can connect.

Number of Connections:
Like the SPH10, the 2Talk headsets support up to 4 devices in a group communication setup, making them suitable for small crews.

Firmware Updated: The 2Talk has an updated firmware that doesn't allow the headsets to hunt for other Bluetooth devices. This becomes important when you are entering a marina where there could be hundreds or Bluetooth devices. The last thing you want is your headset trying to pair with another device as you are just about to dock in a busy marina.

Security:
Private conversations are ensured through secure Bluetooth connections between paired devices.

Range:
The 2Talk headsets provide a practical range of up to 500 ft. This makes them suitable for most boating needs.

Compatibility:
These headsets can pair with a variety of other Sena headsets (including SPH10, Expand, and Tufftalks) and Bluetooth-enabled devices like smartphones for additional communication options.

Design:
The 2Talk headsets have over-the-ear design/behind the neck design with dual stereo earpiece speakers, providing a comfortable fit and clear audio. The volume control is + button to increase the volume and - button to decrease the volume.

Battery:
Offering 8 hours of continuous talk time, the 2Talk headsets require a 2.0-hour charge for a full battery.

Summary of Differences:

  • Design:
    The SPH10 has dial volume control while the 2Talk features + and - buttons. The dial on the SPH10 can get bumped as the dial sticks out a bit more making it more susceptible to having the volume accidentally changed and the dial getting caught on your hood and hats.
  • Firmware Updated:
    The 2Talk has an updated firmware that doesn't allow the headsets to hunt for other Bluetooth devices. This becomes important when you are entering a marina where there could be hundreds or Bluetooth devices. The last thing you want is your headset trying to pair with another device as you are just about to dock in a busy marina.   
  • Compatibility:
    Both models are compatible with other Sena devices and Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, offering flexibility in communication.
