Pro Microphones have an extended mic pair that can be custom routed through the helmet for ideal placement allowing complete consumer control for optimal results.

SLIGHTLY better than original speakers
I installed the U-Clear HBC200 Bluetooth on my Shoei RF-1100 helmet. It came with both the original speakers and these Pro Series speakers. I have ridden around with the original speakers for about 3 months. I have recently removed and replaced them with these Pro Series speakers.
First I'll go with the Cons:
-A little longer to install because of the needing to route the extended mic wires.
-More wires in your helmet because of extended mic wires.
-No noticeable audio quality difference.
-slightly better clarity for the person you're speaking with because of the extended mic wires.
What I expected from these was better sound quality (had trouble understanding what people were saying at moderate higher speeds, and music quality wasn't too great either), which I didn't get. I did get slightly better speaking clarity but then again I never really had any complains from people understanding me with the original speaker/mics.
Original speakers COULD use an upgrade but these unfortunately are not an upgrade. Which is probably why they are priced the same as the original speakers (actually less now since they are on sale). Save your money for something else.

Great improvement to an already good intercom
I have a BMW System 6 helmet and my rider could not hear me above 40 mph with HBC200 Intercom. After installing Pro Microphone, now we can communicate clearly at speeds above 70 mph.

Big improvement over stock boomless microphone
We've use the boomless mic's for years and above 50mph, I cannot understand my passenger over the intercom. We upgraded to the HBC 100+ units and they are great but still trouble hearing at higher speeds. Full face helmet but wind noise. Installed these mic's in both helmets. Great. I can hear her clearly at much higher speeds based on a 200-mile ride. As good or better than my old very good J&M units that had a large mic and required digging into the chin bar to mount.

Speakers in my helmet, WHAT???
I purchased these for a full face helmet. According to the product they are designed for they are not necessary however I like the idea of multiple mounting locations for the microphones. These were mounted into a Scorpion Exo helmet and admittadly there was a little fitment issues, as the check pads did not want to snap back in once installed. Did a little digging and found that the snap was in the way. Made some adjustments and all is right with the world. These are some large speakers for the application but they do the job better than any I have had in the past.

Robert A:I have the Shoei RF-1100 Merciless Helmet using the hbc200, and it works perfect. Now the others can hear and understand me. I ride a 2012 R1 with yosh exhaust and hear & talk fine. It will pick up the motor when getting on it but voice over powers the motor so others hear me. I am very pleased with this mic & speaker set. The one that come with the hbc200 didn't work with the cheak pads no one could understand me. The mic route under the cheek pads and work great. Aug 28, 2014
Dave M:The UClear website clearly shows these units are for both the 100 Plus and for the 200's. I installed the Pro mic's on two different full-face Arai helmets so I'm sure they'd work great in an RF 1200. The instructions that come with them show running the wire thru the top of the helmet and sticking the small microphones at the front of the helmet just above your eyes. This would be logical for half-helmets but for my full-face I chose to run the wires under the cheekpads and put the mic's on the chinbar just in front of each cheekpad, back as close to the cheekpad as possible. Very simple to do. Works great. The instructions also suggest an optimum separation distance of 5" which you could do if along your forehead area of the helmet. But the distance between mine on the chinbar is only about 4+ inches and they work great. No feedback or other problems.Aug 28, 2014
Alessio T asked:Hi, am I forced to buy the all communication set if I only want to put a couple of Bluetooth speakers with microphone into my helmet? I actually don't need to communicate with other bikers and my wish is to find a way to listen my phone gps indications and eventually listen some music while driving. Any suggestion? thanksJun 25, 2014
Christopher B:These plug in to the actual UCLEAR unit, you will need the full unit for any type of bluetooth access. The honest truth is if you want to be completely Wireless and use Bluetooth technology in your helmet, your better off just getting the full package than trying to find one that does just music and GPS. If you do not want to use Earbuds connected to your phone due to safety concerns like me then the UCLEAR HBC100 Plus is by far the best I have used!!!Jun 25, 2014
jing a:Pretty close sounding as my friend has that brand but i give to uclear though as with ear plugs in it is still clear. Also when cranked all the way it is not distorted in any way and the battery life last long over a two hour ride around the island with stops in between.Mar 20, 2014
