If you're main interest is music, this ain't the answer... I was looking for an alternative to the hassle of loss of sound quality of constantly moving earbuds so I read the reviews regarding this unit and I read 98% positive reviews about the unit with regard to music and the ability to hear it clearly. After buying the unit and maticulously installing the speakers in a position in my helmet(Icon alliance threshold)to where it was like holding the speakers right against my ears, I have to be brutally honest and say that I should have listened to the advise of the 2% of people who said that it wasn't worth it. It sounded great when I tried the helmet on after the install, but then I took it for a test run on the freeway and FORGET IT!!!! I couldn't hear ANYTHING but my bike and the wind. This leaves me to conclude one of two things: either I got a defective unit or , everyone who reviewed this thing and said they could hear it good never rides above 40 mph or on the freeway because at 60+ mph YOU WILL NOT HEAR YOUR MUSIC!!! And I'm telling you my speakers lay centered perfectly right up next to my ears. As far as the phone and other communication aspects I can't testify to that because I haven't tried them yet but to me that's irrelevant anyway because as I said my main reason for the purchase was for music. I don't really care about talking on the phone when I ride..... February 24, 2013
Great features, easy to use I don't use it as a communicator but the ability to listen to music and answer calls while riding is great. The sound quality is more than enough to hear the music without drowning out the sounds around you such as other cars that I prefer to hear as well. Overall great product and well worth the price. February 11, 2013
Great product Works great for streaming music from my phone. The one issue i had was with voice calling. It would not understand who i was trying to call. January 19, 2013
Great product for the price, best I found I'm using this for snowboarding and it worked great. I cut a slit in my helmets ear pads and the entire set up took about 5-10 minutes. I just used the included clip and put it on my goggles and it stayed even when hitting the snow hard. Sound clarity is very good but once inside the helmet it obviously looses a bit of the quality for music but for calls was fine. I used it mostly for music and the buttons are a little hard to push with gloves on but still easier than any other remotes I've worked with using gloves. It answered calls well and the sound on the calls was great for both me and the people I was talking to. I did not try the intercom system with another Uclear device but plan to. The battery lasted for 3 full days of snowboarding so I figure actual play time around 8hrs and still has charge left pretty good. For $150 this is a great deal and best item of it's kind on the market. January 3, 2013
Great value for the money Was alble to have it link up with the system in my BMW. BMW's own unit is around $500 and then it fits into only one helmet, that is another $600. The only issue I have is that the straps for my helmet take up part of the area where the speakers need to go. So the pressure on my ears can be a bit much. November 19, 2012
Good Value Good value for cost. My first Bluetooth headset. Clear communication with iPhone. Voice calls are good under 60 MPH. Music sounds good. Two comm is OK. Doesn't have great reception at large distances. October 22, 2012
Worth your money I wanted a speaker system that would allow me to lightly listen to music via bluetooth from my Blackberry Bold 9900. Figured i'd try this out. WOW! Worked perfectly. Of course a lot of the sound clarity/quality will depend on your helmet. I have the Scorpian EXO 700 which in itself isn't a quiet helmet. I was a little worried since i wear earplugs, that i wouldn't be able to hear anything, but i was absolutely wrong, heard everything fine. Some complained about the buttons through gloves, i'm no surprised by the complaints, but i found them decent, definitely something you get used to. Awesome product! October 1, 2012
Not Quite As Good As Expected Installed in an Arai Corsair. I have used other motorcycle communications systems, including Chatterbox, as well has rigged up wired headphones with mic and used my mounted phone for calls and music. My reason for selecting the UClear was to improve phone call and voice command use without taking too much of hit in sound quality. The sound quality is poor in my opinion. But to be fair, I'm used to using Beats earbuds in the helmet. But listening to music was not worth it. Quality was just not good enough. Phone calls were a real dissappointement. The other party could not hear me. I could hear them fine. But the "beam" and noise cancelling technology did not work as I had hoped. I have abandoned trying to use the system to make or recieve calls. For navigation, the system worked fine. The voice instructions from the GPS feature on my phone were clear enough to understand. I think with a little better speakers and possibly working with the positioning of the mics that it may be possible to use to make calls. I think it may be that the mic pickup is so burried in the helmet cushions that the "beam" may not be picking up my voice. Controls were easy to access and use, even with gloves on. The system itself worked flawlessly and was easy to pair with my devices. I was not able to try voice commands due to the system not picking up my voice when underway. I really hated that this product did not work for me as I was really hoping I could do without having to position a mic in the front of my helmet. September 29, 2012

A N: Was looking for a system to work with IPhone without a boom mic and voice command answer feature. Good reviews. Feb 19, 2014
Jorge V: I replaced it for the newest Uclear technology, their products are just amazing, and the fact that they dont use a boom just makes their competition seem outdated. Jan 16, 2014
Sue T: got 1st one and liked it so much I just ordered the 2nd one for my husband!!! Very happy so far..... Oct 23, 2013
Gary A: Purchased to pair with HBC100 I already owned. Oct 5, 2013

A shopper asked: How many separate HBC100 units can communicate together at the same time? Just me and my rider, or if my buddy and his rider have two sets of the HBC100's, can the four of us talk at same time? Sep 16, 2013

Bruce E: Yes four can talk at once or you can seperate from the group with the touch of a button and have a private conversation wife your partner. That was why my buddy and I bought four of them. Nov 4, 2013

Kenneth K asked: Will this work with a Nolan N104? I like the look of this unit but want to make sure it will fit. Aug 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stan Z: You can use any aftermarket unit but with the visor control in the way you have to mount the aftermarket unit(s) with their included sticky tape. Personally, that's not good. Glue weakens and you will run the risk of it separating from the helmet during a ride.

Nolan is not stupid. They placed the sun visor control there for a reason. They WANT YOU to buy the Nolan B4 unit that is Nolan's integrated system for the N104.

No, you cannot install the UClear into the Nolan cutout. Nor any other aftermarket unit.

This question is covered in Anthony's video of the N104. Please watch videos on whatever you are interested in buying before you post questions.

Tim M: It should. I have 2 of them and they install easily and just clip to the side of the helmet. The two wires for the speakers run under the padding and the speakers/microphone sits in the ear pocket. I do not know that the Nolan has the ear pocket, but most helmets do. It is very clear for music and phone calls. The radio feature to talk to other riders is not the best and I usually just call them using my cell phone and talk that way. Aug 16, 2013

A s: I use it with my Nolan N102, and it works fine. I used 3M automotive two faced trim tape to mount the bracket on the door where the N-Com would go and it sits well. the only problem I have is the Mic/speakers are a snug fit in the recess of the cheek pad.


When I replace my helmet next year with the 104 (or 105 if it's out by then) I plan to move it over because the N-Com is just too expensive.

A shopper asked: Will this unit work with 3/4 helmets effectivley, or will it pick up wind and pipe noise? Primary use would be for rider to passenger intercome. Nov 19, 2013

Dmitry S: It's a boom-less mic design, and with that comes the technology aspect. It has noise elimination and suppression tech. Should function fairly well, but at higher speeds (50+mph), there will definitely be some noise and wind noise. I have used mine with some fairly noisy closed face HBC helmet, but it didn't get to bad higher speeds. Sometimes when i'm in the city, they can't hear sirens that are in close proximity.
