Bike to Bike Coms with open face helmet

Hi guys. Haven't posted in a while.
I have been looking for information about bike to bike communication using open face (3/4) helmets.
MY riding bud and I both have open face helmets and look-over windshields on our bikes.
Has anyone found a way for good communications with this setup?

Would be grateful to here of any success story's.

I use a Sena SPH10 https://www.sena.com/product/sph10/ with my beanie helmet. My pillion and others over the phone have said I sound very clear.

Sena has a whole line of headsets depending on your helmet and the configuration you want.

Thanks for all the reply's.

What I can't seem to find is if they work bike to bike with open helmets and low or no windshields.

I have a sena 10s with my 3/4 open face.... works great... coms works great, other person can hear me fine, in fact other person had 3/4 open face as well... I thought it would be a issue, but the boom mic worked great... and I have no shield... he has a victory so it has the fairing...

Other then that, I use it every time i ride to listen to music...
