Disappointed. How so many good reviews?
I purchased a Uclear HBC 100 plus Bluetooth unit for my motorcycle helmet. I need help getting it to work correctly.<br><br>So far I am regretting my purchase. I had high hopes based on the reviews. Sound quality is decent enough. But instructions are very small and leave a lot to be desired. Cannot register the unit on the Uclear site. It rejects the input and gives an error message in Chinese. So no way to figure out why it is rejecting registration. I cannot find a customer service number where anyone answers a phone. So.... zero tech support. Then the very limited functionality of a $150 unit. This thing is worth about $20 bucks for the few things that it does... and poorly at that.<br><br>So far a list of things I need help with.<br>1. Bluetooth ALWAYS auto answers. Even when auto answer feature on the phone is switched off.<br>2. Bluetooth has only ONE ringtone. That means my personalized ringtones do not make the transfer to the unit. So I don't know who is calling.<br>3. Bluetooth won't let you turn on "announce caller" feature. Even when turned on, it doesn't make it to the BT unit. Only that one same ringtone. So who is calling me? I don't know and I can't make a decision whether or not to pick up unless I pull over and get my phone out to see who it is...... But the darned thing has already auto answered to someone I didn't want to talk to. Grrrrr.<br>4. I cannot ever start the music from the BT unit. No big deal, I'll start it before I leave on my ride. BUT If I manually pause music, I cannot restart it. I have to stop my bike, get out my phone and manually restart music. WTF?<br>5. Phone will not recognize ANY voice commands if moving even 10 mph. USELESS. I have to pull over to a dead stop and place a call. Then I can start riding again. Call quality during the ride is pretty good.... Even at higher speeds. Just can't initiate voice command. HJC IS-Max II helmet. Not the best helmet out there, but not junk.<br>6. If I hit a bump on the bike the sound coming out of the speakers skips.<br>7. So far I have not figured out how to determine how much battery life I have left. The directions don't address this. I just have to wait until it dies.<br><br>No that I am researching on Uclear website. Their answer to everything is "Update the firmware" ON YOUR PHONE. According to the website, there is never anything wrong with the BT.<br><br>I am sooooo disappointed. Not worth the effort. If you want something that you can take out of the box and start using. And use the features of the phone, but something else. This is worth about $20 bucks in it's present state.

CBR 600RR - Great Sound
I used these on my 2006 CBR600RR, which has a two brothers exhaust, very loud, installed on it. I was just using it to listen to music until I thought to accept a call while riding in Washington, DC, and I was blown away by the fact that the person on the other side could actually hear me while I was revving the bike at 10k. The person said, he couldn't believe believe that I was riding and talking to him, no background noise at all. I must also credit Shoei for this, because the GT-Air is a solid sound proof helmet.<br><br>It does lack bass, but I'm not going to complain because after all you are riding and not sitting in a box with 12" sub woofers.

Great communicator!
Of several motorcycle communicators I've tried over time, this is the one that has proven most useful and effective, not only for maintaining telephone contact with the rest of the world, but also enabling me to listen to music, news, and navigation directions while riding.<br>I highly recommend this device.

Just what I needed
Was using ear-buds, with my cell phone, but dropped the bike once, and they ripped out of my ears,and broke in the socket!<br>Now, Bluetooth wireless stereo sound, to listen to music, and the radio on the internet. The sound though is not super loud, so at speed not so good, but who cares, you are riding!<br>The phone part is so different, as the sound is louder, and you can talk to people at 100 km\h, and they can hear you quite well considering the wind and engine noise.The best part is when the phone rings you just say "answer" and the thing connects you automatically! Not a miracle, but sweet. Haven't had need for the intercom, so far.<br>So far very happy with this.

Great price and good sound
Great product and very good sound. I paired this in my RF-1100 and it's great. Battery life is good use it on an hour and a half ride with music playing and calls coming in. Calls a crisp as people calling me didn't even know I was riding a motorcycle.

Crisp and Clear
This is a great product. I have two HJC helmets and I have a set of speakers in both. Takes a slight bit of adjusting to get them right. Music is loud and clear. Phone conversations are easy to hear and communicate (no WHAT DID YOU SAY!?!?! the whole time). Voice texting works great. I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

Best boom less unit out there
I paired this with my phone and installed in my quest helmet in less than 20 min sitting at the kitchen table.<br>Have used it on the highway , in town and around the local housing area.<br>I give it all fives stars as for the money you cannot beat it.<br>No Boom which in a close fitting helmet is important to me .<br>Pairing it to my phone was childs playy and if you can connect anything bluetooth to your phone this is a snap.<br>Yes these are not super high sound Bose sound muffling headset but is well with in the standards of other in helmet speakers, Im comparing them to EdSets at the time and they were fine.<br>I recieved a call from my wife and she asked me where I was and couldnt tell I was going down the highway at 75 on my ST1300 soyes I had a windshield but it was a perfect clear to her.<br>I also tried it on my sportbike (ZX1400) and the quality was still good but the speaker did get drowned out over 65 or 70 with my Quest helmet.<br><br>Overall I would recommend these to a friend , in fact I have and the ylike thm also !!!

Great communicator for the money, with some caveats...
Ease of install and the ability to easily move between helmets attracted me to the HBC100+. Most of the time it works well enough. My main complaint is if you're using earplugs, it doesn't get nearly loud enough - and yes, I know that sounds silly, but good earplugs will still allow you to hear while filtering out wind roar. Without plugs, these things get plenty loud, but combined with wind roar, that will = hearing damage in no time flat.<br>Anyway, as I said, it works fine most of the time. Now and then it inexplicably drops connection, almost always on the phone side of things. When I receive calls, the caller can't hear me and the unit doesn't respond to voice commands to pick up, but if I make the outbound call, it works perfectly. And yes, I've rebooted it and updated the firmware; no difference. It's just picky sometimes.<br>For music it works great all the time - my only ask would be that it be updated to accept voice commands for music, not just calls. If I hit a stretch of songs I don't like, it's kind of tiring to constantly reach up and double click the button to fast forward - I'd love to just say, "Next song."<br>This is a good buy if you don't want to spend double for other units out there - I would buy it again - the flexibility and relatively low expense to have other helmets ready for the unit makes it worthwhile. The other stuff I think are bugs that will be worked out in future versions.

Great features, inexpensive, latest Bluetooth stack, boomless mic, low profile. Similarly priced Sena units were old tech and last generation. Reviews for the Uclear units were consistent and good.

troy a on Sep 21, 2014
I have heard only good comments about this system of communication. Most of these people use the Uclear on snowmobile. So if it is good for the loud sound of snowmachines, it should do the job for my motorcycle. I am a solo rider so this is why I chose HBC100.

I chose this product because I have friends who have UClear communicators and love them. It is also nice that that does not have a boom microphone, which is something I did not like about my last communicator setup.
Jerad on Apr 16, 2014
I chose this because of the technology that does not require a mic and the number of positive reviews.
Winston G on Feb 6, 2014
I chose this item because of the boomless mic/speakers. Seems like a great design. I was torn between the Sena SMH10R. what sold me was not having an external battery on the rear of the helmet.
Sanford B on Dec 19, 2013
Boomless, reviews good, recommended by someone I met as having better sound quality than most Bluetooth units.

Do you have to press a button to comunicate with another rider, or can you just start talking?
Andrew R on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't have multiple units but I believe you can just talk when the unit is paired with a Nother unit
Will this pair with my android phone? Specifically my Galaxy S4 and if possible my Galaxy Tab S
Chris R on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It works exactly as advertised. Battery life is great. I have only taken a few phone calls with it. Each time the caller had no idea I was on a motorcycle. Music is fine too. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
my friends have the UCLEAR 200 ... if i have the UCLEAR 100 plus will i be able to connect with them?
jesus S on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe they will be able to communicate, but you will need to be on the latest firmware on each device. You will need a computer and USB cable to update the firmware. With the latest firmware you can now communicate with even other brands of headsets.

You can download the firmware updates from Revzilla's website. You will be limited to three or four people though with the 100 Plus model.

The manual is also available online and should walk you through the process to connect with the 200 model and also other headsets.

Syncing the headsets is the most challenging part of the process.
I have two 100+ UClear Bluetooth units. My wife and I ride all the time and they work great. My friend that rides with us is buying two of the 200 UClear Bluetooth for him and his wife. Will my wife and I be able to connect to my friend and his wife since I only have the 100+ and he will have the 200?
Tommy I on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm pretty sure that they are compatible across the UClear product line, but I'm not an expert on this. I still like the product though and it has been working fantastic since last year and many a rain soaking. Good luck!
Will I be able to pair this with an andriod device? I know some devices are maker specific on bluetooth between apple and android.
Chris R on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have an iPhone and pairing it was simple and am sure that it would do the same with an Android. UCLEAR does not say that it pairs to certain stuff but says it will pair.
i have the HBC 100 plus unit with my dad they are paired up and work wonders but it says we can connect it to our GPs device we currently have a garmin Nuvi 2497 and on the uclear site it says garmin are one of the best one to be able to connect to but i am having issues connecting to the garmin .. not sure if its due to the head sets or the garmin its self. could you possible shed some insight on this ? if so thanks
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think you should reach out to UClear directly. I have same unit and only connect to my phone for calls and music. I think you are permitted 2 concurrent connections. If you have your Dad on one and music or phone on the other, then your GPS will exceed the connection limit. Again, this is my guess and I would check directly with UClear.
Is this full duplex communication between all 4 riders? For example, it says it pairs up to 4 riders so if one person talks does all 4 people hear?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes this is full duplex, when a person speaks all four devices will hear that person. If two people speak at the same time you will hear both people talking. It works like a land line phone in that manner.

Also if you have four devices synced, each device works like a repeater. So say you have four bikes riding in a line and they are 700 feet apart, the distance from the first bike to the fourth bike is 2100 feet, which is further than the rated distance, but each device inline will repeat the signal, so the person at each end of the line will have no trouble hearing and talking to everyone else.

Be sure to upgrade to the latest firmware to get all of these features though.
With the latest firmware, can anyone comment on the volume through the earpiece while wearing earplugs? Can you still clearly hear music and phone calls with them in?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The volume is OK with ear plugs in. Will depend a lot on the type of helmet you are wearing, speed you are traveling, and the bike you are riding.
Can anyone tell me how well this would fit into an Icon Alliance helmet?
Benjamin W on Mar 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have an Icon Alliance helmet, This fit perfectly into the helmet! It only takes a few minutes to do. The speakers disappear behind the ear pads and you can't tell they are there. The sound is great even at highway speeds and the phone calls are clear. I would recommend this product for sure.
Does anyone have any experience with installing this into a Shoei Qwest helmet?
The cheekpads appear to cover the microphones? WebBikeWorld gave this unit rave reviews but I want to see if anyone has put it into a Qwest. Thanks - B.
Bradley C on Nov 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Bradley C: I put this into a Shoei Neotek helmet. The speakers/microphones don't fit perfectly into the speaker cups built into the helmet. You have to 'angle' them in with the top of the speaker in the cups and leave the bottom hanging out of the whole a little bit. The cheekpads are very close to covering the mics, but they work very well anyway. While it's not a perfect install, it still works and doesn't touch your ears even though it doesn't fit exactly right. I've got about 2500 miles on my bike since install and LOVE having tunes and phone access. Good luck!
