I'm sure Adam will chime in, but here's one idiot's opinion in the mean time:
The battery may not last quite as long ... estimated at 10 vs. 12 hours, and it doesn't have the range of bracket/mounting options that the SMH10 has, but if the stock bracket works for you then ... my humble opinion would be YES ... go for the SMH5 as it is less expensive and connection of the device to the bracket is more robust.
The SMH5 also has BT V3.0 which is probably not a big deal vs. the V2.1 of the SMH10
