Having just installed mine I would say that it is not as glove friendly as the SMH10. That big jog dial on the 10 is very glove friendly from what I hear. Once you pair and start a ride I don't see a real need to touch this unit all day as it remembers volume control for each different device.
I will say that the audio is great even for a hearing challenged guy like myself. The unit is so slim it is barely noticeable. Installation took about 30 minutes and now it looks and feels like part of the helmet. So far very pleased and can't wait for the snow to melt to give it a test.
Everything about this product says "quality" and I thank RocketMoto for their advice and fast shipping. Two thumbs up!
