UCLEAR HBC100 Plus Bluetooth Communicator
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!
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!
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.
So far very happy with this.

I had high hopes when purchasing this product. I took a 2500 mile road trip and the product held up but barely. Got caught in a monsoon downpour right at the tail of the dragon. Outside of Wheelers there. I rode all the way back to Ashville and about half way there my unit crapped out. I was talking to my riding buddy and boom nothing more. I pulled over and when I touched the button water squirted out of the unit. We pulled into the hotel and I dried it out for two full days. It started working again but the main buttons don't work. My unit is still under warranty but that did me no good out on the road.
I stopped and looked at other ones that were in the $400 range and I wished that I had purchased one of those instead. I took photos and videos of the Uclear unit failing and waterlogged. I plan on posting them on my travel blog. You can read more about it there.

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.
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.

Excellent Product, better company.
Bought three units total, one double pack and one single pack. All three units work great and were easy to install. We use them in half helmets so we upgraded to the Pro Set microphone speaker units also. Definitely worth the extra money.
We worked with Revzilla and UClear directly when making these purchases and I Can't compliment both companies enough. We had a lot of questions before making the purchase and both companies answered all of our questions quickly and politely. You can find other of good products out there, but you will be very hard pressed to find two better companies to deal with, and in the end the product is only as good as the people behind it and dealing with these two companies your are dealing with great people.
If you are installing this in a three quarter or full face helmet it will be a breeze. If are installing this in a half helmet and you have a little ingenuity and are handy around hand tools you won't have any problem. You can find videos on YouTube that will help, but almost every half helmet is slightly different, so you will have to figure out what you think is comfortable and works best with your helmet. Like I said we both three units and each of us installed them in our helmets. Each helmet was different and each install was different. Two of the users installed using the ear pads you can find for these units on most websites and I skipped the ear pads and made up my own mounts. I found the ear pads to be a little to big and they made me a little to warm. Of course I ride in New England and even in the cold I am always hot, so that is a personal preference. Either way, all three units work well and the Pro Mics are incredible. No wind noise and no background noise, pretty impressive when you are riding with an open helmet. The rider can hear the other person with no problem..
So the bottom line is I strongly recommend the product and the companies...

Since it doesn't have a boom the installation is super easy. Music and calls sound great and my friend on the other end of the call said I sounded fine and he never would have guessed I was riding down the road. I mounted it to a Vega Summit II which is a modular helmet. He said he couldn't tell the difference if I had the helmet opened or closed. I knocked off one star because I don't know if the intercom works as I ride solo.

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.

It works well and it is easy to use.
The Uclear 100 plus work well and it is easy to use. Installation was a snap! and works as expected.

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.
I highly recommend this device.
