U-CLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator - Single Pack
I'm in the motorcycle business and have been using these products for several years now. The sound quality is amazing and the overall product quality is outstanding. Highly recommend!

Great product, Great company
My son and I bought the HBC 200 for our motorbike helmets and love it. It is loud and clear to around 110KPH here in Victoria, Australia. Took a little fiddling to set up but works first time every time once paired to each other and to the mobile phones. I have two open face helmets, one with a visor that is very noisy with wind noise, riding a Harley that is also as loud as you get (D&D pipes). The 200 filters most of the noise. We ride a lot in the mountains and have been able to warn the other about hazards such as cars cutting corners, branches on the roads, washaways and so on.
I then ordered extra speaker kits for the other helmets and got great service from Lauren at Uclear including very quick email responses to my queries.
The boomless microphone system works much better than I thought it possibly could.

easy to install and operate
been using the hbc200 for a year and its been great no issues what so ever. Very clear sound comes through the speakers. sometimes when I'm talking to someone via phone i have to repeat myself because they can't hear me but that may just be my snug fitted helmet. But over all a great product

I have had the unit for abut 5 rides so far. I have not been able to test the rider to rider function yet. But for music and calls it has been great. It pauses the music when a call comes in and restarts it when the call is over. I have received calls at well above highway speeds and the caller was able to hear and understand me without a problem.

Awesome product for music and phone!
I looked at all the options for in helmet communications and this one stood out. I was worried about full face, as the boomless mics would be covered by the ear pads. When I got the product and made a call on it through my iPhone 4S, the callee said I sounded muffled. I updated the software, and it sounded a little better, but still muffled. So I ordered the pro headphones that have extensions for the mics and it works like a champ now! It does exactly what I wanted it to do and the pro headphones sound amazing. I highly recommend it on here and I've been telling my friends to get some. Well worth the price!

Better than expected
My buddy and I made good use of the HBC200s on a trip
around Moab. I was amazed how clear the intercom function works. The line of sight communication distance for us was approximately one quarter mile or more. Pairing was easy. When I ride solo I use it frequently for listening to music from my smart phone via the bluetooth connection. My only gripe is the volume at maximum is not always loud enough. Just an FYI, helmet normally used is a Shoei DS Hornet

Wish I had gotten the two-pack
Excellent product all-around. Loved how easy it was to install, and simple to pair up to multiple communicators, and devices.
I noted before my purchase that other reviews stated it was hard to hear at higher speeds, and hard to BE heard at higher speeds (above 55mph)... I can say that this isn't entirely true in my experience. I can hear it fine all the way upto 85mph, and can BE heard upto about 70mph. If you have a bike with decent wind deflection (larger windscreen or fairing) you will likely share this experience. I would imagine that helmet noise would make a notable difference in this experience as well, but my helmet is probably a 7 out 10 on quietness. What I really love about the U-clear, is no one can tell I'm riding when they are speaking with me on the phone until I tell them, and then they don't believe it because they can't hear the engine or wind noise. My wife has to ask first if I'm riding or pulled over when we speak on the U-clear because she still can't tell!
I use it for Navigation, Music, Communicator, and Phone... all running at the same time for most everytime I ride. Never had an issue with the battery running out yet, and longest ride with that so far has been 6hrs total. It is a real blast with several riders pair up on the U-clear, and my only regret is that I didn't get the dual pack for my wife when she rides on the back with me. Definitely going to be a future purchase for us!
