U-CLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator - Dual Pack
This is a very good and easy to setup and use system
Very easy to setup, no mic boom needed, the boomless system works well. At highway plus speed.....when I took a call....(before I slowed down) the caller could not believe I was on a motorcycle, no wind noise and or loud background noise. However I did need to slow down a bit to hear clearly. Music by bluetooth is clear, again easy to link up, volume is great. I always wear ear plugs, and volume is fine. I also have the in-ear buds, they also work well, but feel no need to use them.
I have not yet used the intercom function. Thus no review offered on the intercom function.

Great Product, but helmet fit is limited
My wife and i purchased this product for our Spring riding, hopefully coming soon to the cold frozen Ohio roads. We are new to the sport, but researched a lot and knew this was for us. We have tried them all over the house and outside, and the sound quality is great, connectivity is easy with bluetooth devices, voice commands are readily followed and functionality is superior. It does take a little getting used to to push the correct sequence of buttons with gloves on.
My only problem was that my helmet did not have large enough speaker cut outs for the UCLear speaker. I added some poly resin to the ear cut out- buiding up the cut-out and then applied the velcro and speaker, It worked well and did not bother my ears with the helment on. I can't wait ot get out on the road.

I bought the Uclear HBC 200 dual pact about a year ago. It was easy to install, and I loved the technology but was not satisfied with the volume and clarity of the sound (bike to bike communication) at highway speeds. It wasn't loud enough and the sound was garbled. I mentioned this to Wendy,the Uclear rep at the motorcycle show, and she said 1) Uclear would send me upgraded speakers and 2) I should download the software upgrade (Ver.1.10) from the web site. I got the new speakers in 2-3 days, installed them, and downloaded the software upgrade. And, Wow! Problem solved. We can now hear each other clearly at over 75 MPH with after market mufflers roaring and wind blowing on the helmets. Wendy and Lauren at Uclear were helpful and gracious at every step of the way. This a great product, and we are very happy with it.

Perfect for touring
I am very impressed with this pair of UCLEAR units. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to set up and use. But the sound quality was the biggest surprise .how it works with out a boom is unbelievable. After using the older style boom units there is no comparisons The boom less units work much better and with little or no distortion. This is an all around great product and I would high recommend it to all my HOG friends

Buyer Beware - Good Product (May not fit)
DON'T buy this product UNLESS Revzilla first confirms the speakers will fit your helmet. I bought a Shoei GT Air Journey and the HBC200 for $1000. The speaker holes in the helmet are too small for the U-Clear speakers. You can't find that out unless you try to install them and you can't return the HBC200 product if you open the package. My rating is based on my experience with HBC100s.

What a product
So I bought the pair, one for me and one for a friend. One was not functioning so the customer service rep a UClear, Lauren, just said send the one that is not working back and I will send you a replacement. A week later the replacement was in my hand, no questions asked. What great customer service.
No mike on my full face Arai is a great thing, I don't scratch my forehead anymore. The thing actually works really, really well.The sound on the headphones is very good, I have installed my iPhone 5 and my TomTom13 to it and it works great!! I used to have Chaterrbox, but must say that is way better. We shall try it with the other one and see the communication between the two of them.

Does what it should. Very well.
My wife and I have been using the HBC200 system for the past season with excellent results. Sound quality (up to about 70MPH), battery life, ease of install, ease of use are all great. Bike to bike intercom is outstanding. I have had phone conversations and the other person had no idea I was on a motorcycle traveling at speed!

I have used these in all sort of conditions and have never had a problem with them. I have even been caught in nasty rain storms and they came through without a hitch. I wear a shorty helmet and up to 70 mph I can hear every word clearly. I have been on rides talking on the phone and the person on the other end had no clue has fast I was moving.
