UCLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator

Featuring Boomless ABF Technology, the U-CLEAR HBC200 Force introduces Super Group Intercom and Multi-Hop technology, specifically designed for group communications with full duplex intercom. Multi-hop technology, used in military tactical communications provides superior sound quality and connection stability over Bluetooth intercom systems that suffer from interference and are "line of sight" dependent. By incorporating Multi-hop technology, each Uclear HBC200 control unit works as a repeater or relay station, enabling the network to grow as more control units/riders are added to the group. Depending on riding conditions, the intercom range between two riders is up to 700 meters. Adding a third unit/rider increases the intercom range up to an additional 700 meters. Add a fourth rider and the entire group can communicate up to 2100 meters (1.3 miles) and so forth, in full duplex intercom mode.

With the latest firmware, the HBC200 adds connectivity with other brands of Bluetooth communicators, Multipoint Bluetooth connections for syncing multiple phones, iPods or GPS units and Advanced Private Intercom.

Features:

  • Boomless microphone (an industry first)
  • Music, Calls, GPS (Bluetooth devices)
  • Multipoint Bluetooth service supports dual device connections
    • Connect to two smartphones at the same time, or a smartphone and an iPad, iPod, GPS etc
  • Super Group Intercom (Full Duplex for up to 10 riders)
  • Open intercom with other brands of Bluetooth communicators
    • Cross-band intercom enables you to connect with other riders, even if they have another brand of communicator
  • Multi-Hop Communication Extender
    • With 10 users connected, Multi-Hop Technology extends maximum range to nearly 4 miles and allows non-line-of-sight connections (range will vary on environmental conditions)
  • Voice command for hands-free call pickup
  • Hi-Fi stereo audio (AVRCP, A2DP)
  • Patented ABF / DSP technology isolates your voice and eliminates all background noise
  • Auto loudness adjustments
  • GPS device compatible (Bluetooth HS/HFP profile required)
  • Easy installation on any helmet including full face or 3/4 helmets
  • Speaker diameter 40mm; depth approx 7mm
  • Firmware upgrades available
  • One year manufactures warranty

Note: Some of the features listed above require updating the firmware to the latest version. Download the latest version firmware here.

UCLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator - Single Pack 4.1 5 34 34
super tuff I was recently in a crash that the main blow was on the same side of my helmet as this hands free. It came out un scathed and still works perfectly. The chin bar on my neotec was completely broke. My favorite part was that it was boomless. It worked great even at freeway speeds I could make clear calls. I liked the simplicity of only 3 buttons. Once you memorized what combinations did what it was easy to use riding with gloves on. Cons, I could never get my BMW navigator 4 to work at the same time as my iPhone at least with any kind of reliability. The usb charge hole is pretty small and I always had to use the included cable to charge it. April 21, 2015
Works very well for my uses. Maybe I need more friends. Maybe I just don't like being with people. Who knows. But the vast majority of my miles are solo, so I've never had any desire for an intercom. So why am I reviewing this? Because I use it as a bluetooth link to my cell phone and GPS and my experience with those uses has been fantastic. For a while, I never had any means to be contacted when on the road. A stop at a pay phone or using the motel's phone was my way to stay in touch - if I wanted. Well, the wife likes to be able to know I'm OK when she wants. So, I carried a cell phone. But I'd only look at it when I was stopped - if I remembered. This did not lead to happy wife, so I did not have happy life.... Then came along bluetooth and those idiotic ear pieces. Took me a while, but I found one that would work with a helmet and plugged my ear well enough to work as an earplug. I'd have to pull over to talk, but at least I knew when she called. And to her credit, she did not call as often as I feared. I also started to use a GPS that routed and became good at plotting routes to desired locations and roads. What I wasn't good at was checking the screen and tended to miss turns. Which, when you are in the middle of nowhere tends to mean you missed something you wanted to see. About a year ago, I got a new helmet which fit even closer than the last one. This made getting the earpiece to stay put even harder as the helmet went on. I also got a new GPS (Garmin Monterra - nice unit) that had bluetooth, but I could not pair both the phone and the GPS at the same time. So, I started looking for helmet speakers that could do the job. I liked the UClear for the lack of a microphone wire. Would make the installation much easier. Reviews seemed good, could pair with both devices, and the mount would not be permanent. When I got the headset, I was initially upset as the speakers were too thick to mount in my helmet. They touched my ears! But I was able to use a razor knife to cut out the hard plastic lining that sat over the protective foam which recessed the speakers enough to clear my ears. Didn't have to remove any foam, so there should not be any loss of protection. The best part is that I was able to cut such a form fitting pocket that the speakers look like they were built into the helmet. The wires laid easily behind the liner with just enough of a pigtail to attach to the exterior unit. Clipping the control to the lower lip of the helmet took some work due to the way the neck roll was designed, but it worked out. The UClear paired with my phone and GPS with no issues. When you turn on the UClear, you get a tone as each device connects. Even with 25db ear plugs in, the audio is nice and clear. GPS directions and can easily carry on a phone conversation. I do not place calls when in motion, but answering only requires a press of the large button on the UClear. On longer trips where time passes without GPS directions, the device does shut off, but it plays a tone before so that you know it is happening. If I were to play music, that would not happen, but I don't ride with music. There might also be an issue with the music blocking the GPS directions too. Never tried, so I don't know. I have no problem with the headset lasting a full day on the road. Easy enough to recharge, but don't lose the cable as I can not get a standard micro USB to work. I made sure to put a tag on the cable so that I know exactly which one is for the headset. When commuting during the week, I run about 60 minutes a day and the headset lasts the week on a charge. Even with some after-work errands, I have not had the device run out of charge for the daily use. While I have no other communicator style system to compare against, compared to the earpiece I was using, the audio is MUCH clearer and talking on the phone is dramatically better. I no longer have to stop for people to understand what I'm saying. March 12, 2015
Beats the SMH10 by Far! I come from a 2 years experience with a pair of SENA SMH10. I had some serious issues with the Sena; I would say it is useless in an open-face and I personally consider a microphone in a closed helmet dangerous for the teeth in case of a crash. Lately I switched to a modular Lazer Carbon helmet; what a beauty I would say but, I would need an intercom system that meets my needs. So I went for the HC200. I first installed it in literally 5 minutes, then charged and upgraded the firmware to the latest available release. The night I installed it I did not have the chance to test it but the following day had a group ride. While riding I was listening to music from my Xperia Z3 and suddenly someone called. Inside my helmet I said "Hello" and it picked up. My brother was talking to me from Paris and he could not believe I was riding! He said the sound clarity is even better than talking directly through the Z3; he could not even hear the KTM 1190 engine revz! So in short, give it a try and be amazed! edd! March 5, 2015
works well and very cool before pairing to bluetooth devices, I recommend updating the firmware. I could not connect other devices other than Uclear until I updated the firmware. Love the boom less feature and sound clarity is just fine. However, I do not listen to music while riding and only use this as a communication device and sometimes to answer phone calls. January 14, 2015
Low on bass, but well worth in the advantages. The install was clear and easy; haven't finished running the wires in its fixed position because I will have to use the dremel to do so on my Shoei RF-1200, or used the permanent adhesive part because I wanted to test the different positions of the unit. Other than that, this is awesome and easy to use. A little weird trying to make calls on the move but then again, I probably should be. November 24, 2014
Awesome product! Hello all, So I bought the Uclear HBC200 a few weeks ago after months of researching different options. I have to say, the install was beyond easy. I have an HJC RPHA MAX helmet and these speakers fit perfectly in the cutout area. Clipping the unit itself to the helmet was easy as well. The only thing that was slightly aggravating was not the physical install but the updating of the firmware. Not that I had to, I actually used it as is for a while before doing so, but I figured why not update. It might make you want to slam your head in to the wall. As for the performance, I've gotten up to 70 mph on my bike and the sound was still loud and crisp. I don't feel like I'm ever lacking any volume while riding. The simplicity of just three buttons make it easy to use as well while riding and even with gloves on. A great feature I like is that when someone calls you, you only need to say "pick up" and the unit will answer. There are a few other hands free commands, but I have yet to try those out. Talking while riding at 60mph, I did have to speak a little louder than I normally would, but those on the other end of the line said I did not sound like I was shouting or talking loudly and they also could not tell that I was riding. While 200.00+ for a unit may seem pricey, it is well worth the investment. I use an Apple Iphone 5s and it pairs easy and I have had no problems with it disconnecting or losing signal. Should something come up later on that I do not like, I will try and update this review. November 19, 2014
Absolutely love this thing The only problem I have is the speakers are to big for a Shoie helment rf 1100 and 1200 September 15, 2014
Music sound quality is poor and finding the correct spot to get the buttons to work properly was difficult at times. I purchased this based on a recommendation from another rider. I found the sound quality of the speakers to be poor, there was no bass to speak of, which made listening to music very annoying. It worked fine with my Iphone and google maps but I had to turn off the music because I either couldn't hear the song or the high pitch became annoying. I purchased this through Amazon and have returned it. June 16, 2014

A S: If you have good sound in intercom mode but not in phone mode it means there is an issue with phone connection. Phones can connect to Bluetooth devices in various modes. For example, HFP (hands free profile) or HSP (headset profile) will sound hollow or muffled. The preferred A2DP (advanced audio digital processing) will provide superior sound quality. To stop HFP and access A2DP: First, stop the music with the controls on your device. Next, ‘double press’ the PWR button on your UCLEAR unit to restart the music. If this doesn’t work on the first attempt, repeat the process a couple of times. If this still does not work, “reboot” the phone and your UCLEAR unit, then ‘double press’ the PWR button to start the music. If this does not work, check with the phone manufacturer to make sure it is A2DP enabled. If it is, you might try updating the phone software to ensure you have the phone manufacture’s latest A2DP software updates. Mar 27, 2014

Michael B: Yes, unfortunately , we had several issues trying to "match" the positions of the speakers on each side of the helmets. The sound quality from the Garmin, XM Radio, and intercom was "good" the sound quality from the iPhone 5 was unrecognizable. The sound was muffled and garbled. We tried all sorts of setting, and volume setting but still could not get the U-Clear to perform as advertised. We contacted U-Clear about the issue, they said they developed a new speaker/mic system that should solve the problem but, it was currently tied up in customs. That was three weeks ago and since then, we've installed the SENA SMH10, this system has a boom mic but, it works really well. Bigger buttons, easy jog dial, and sound quality is very good, even when using the iPhone 5. The U-Clear is a cool system and it's great not having to deal with a boom mic but, until they can the bugs worked out we'll use the SENA . Oct 30, 2013

Tim B: My experience is that if the microphones are properly aligned they work very well. They are critical on placement, though, so it took me some trial and error before I found the right spot and angle for best performance. Both earpiece units need to be in the same relative position, and mikes pointed at the same angle. If you have one pointed higher or lower than the other, performance suffers.

I use mine with a Schuberth modular helmet, iPhone, and Garmin GPS. Note, my experience is only with the cel phone and GPS, I have not used the bike to bike intercom function.

I hope this helps.

DEAN A asked: Are the button faces soft (thin layer of rubber over the actual button) or are the buttons hard plastic??
I have hbc100 and the buttons are soft and it took no time for it to crap out on me. I love every thing else about the unit but I hated the soft buttons. I dont want to buy the new one if they are still using soft buttons

Thanks

Tim B: I don't have any experience with the 100, but based on your description I think the buttons on the 200 are the same. It feels like an outer cover of rubber similar to the rubber used for inner tubes, with a button beneath the cover. It is easy to activate the buttons with a bare hand, but with gloves on, and the unit on the side of your helmet, sometimes it can be a challenge to hit the right spot. On the plus side, the unit still works as it did when I got it - no functional problems with the buttons other than difficulty in hitting them consistently. May 30, 2014

Ward P: It's a thin layer of rubber over the actual button, mine has seen some extensive use with no trace of wear of damage over the past two and half years. I love this unit, the volume is great!!!

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
togume: I currently have the HBC100 on my Multitec. Installation was easy, and the modular design does not get in the way because all of the HBC100 components are installed on the static portion of the helmet. The only advice I have is to make sure that the device has enough clearance on the side of the helmet for when the face is flipped up. Also, the wires tuck into the sides with the use of a paper clip, or something to push it in. Oct 31, 2012

RevZilla: It will likely take a little creativity when it comes to routing the speakers wires around the neckroll and comfort liner but it should work fine on either a Multitec and Neotec. We have installed a SENA SMH-10 on a Multitec and installation with a U-Clear will be very similar. Apr 13, 2012

A shopper asked: I have a AGV k3 the 46 helmet , any issues with fitment ? May 1, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Claudio G: I don't have and AGV K3. I have mine in a Roof Boxer V8 Flip Front helmet. It works great, No problem with speakers installation. For the external unit i'm using the clip and holds it perfectly. Sometimes the unit detaches from the clip but the usb connector cable holds the unit in place. I added and extra security string for camera cap lenses for peace of mind. The best was to get rid of the boom microphone, the front flip mask of the helmet keeps clamping the boom microphone, with this one no more cliping and the audio quality when I use the phone is perfect. I imagine with a full face helmet should work perfect. Just check the space to fit the internal speakers only The audio quality of the speakers are very good. Easy to sync with iPhone 5 and 6.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
erik c: I have an rf1200 as well and it's a little tight. It's where the microphone and where the wire hooks up to the speaker it bumps out and this is where the issue lies. What I did, and depending on how comfortable you feel with this, is I marked where it bumped out on the plastic lining under the padding and trimmed it out with my dremel tool. There's already a factory cut whole where the chin strap comes trough that you can just extend to make the bumps fit. Again probably not everyone's solution but I love my rf 1200 as well as the UClear. Well worth the time. Aug 26, 2014

A S: UCLEAR has thousands of satisfied users and stellar reviews, however the unit must me installed correctly to get superior sound quality from "boomless" ABF microphone technology. And if connected to another Bluetooth device, the connected device must be programmed correctly as well. If an user has an issue, UCLEAR's support team will bend over backwards to help with an audio challenge. Most are simple fixes, plus we offer multiple speaker/mic options for more complex audio situations. Mar 27, 2014

Brandon H asked: I have icon chieftain helmet would this device fit easily an or install easily? Aug 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Vincent B: I installed the unit in an icon Carbon Life Form Air Frame.Locating them behind the cheek pads where your ear pockets are the place to put them but if the helmet is fit snugly the units might be too tight to your ear. And you need to make sure that you point the microphones so that they point to an imaginary spot in front of your mouth. This seams to improve their ability to pick up your voice and squelch out unwanted wind and background noise. Once it is set and adjusted I think you will be pleased with the technology which is really tops.

A shopper asked: I have the Arai Signet Q MD and would like to know if the speakers will fit. Thanks Mar 18, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: If you intend to use the microphone feature in addition to just the speakers, we do not recommend the U-CLEAR for an Arai Signet-Q. On the Signet-Q, communicator speakers fit best when mounted directly to the cheekpad beneath the cheekpad cover, and since the U-CLEAR's microphones are integrated into the speakers, the cheekpad covers may reduce the sensitivity of the microphones. If you intend to use the U-CLEAR solely as a listening device, the speakers will work just fine in the Signet-Q. Mar 20, 2013
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A S: UCLEAR "boomless" speakers/mic combo will work fine when recessed inside cheekpad as long as speaker/mic combo is not encumbered by a solid non-breathable material such as plastic or leather. If the cheekpad is a non-breathable leather, UCLEAR's Pro Mic option is recommend solution. It will provide great sound quality. Mar 27, 2014

JR651x750: The 200 model is not like your iPhone if u have one and you can NOT link it up with Siri. All you can do is say "answer" when your listening to music to answer the phone. You can link it up with more the 1 person which is a huge plus to the 100 series. Also I like all 3 buttons control your music volume and music shuffle. Oct 1, 2012

Reid L asked: Help!

So I just purchased the uClear HBC200. The speaker quality is great, and the VOX commands are awesome. All that being said I have a really skinny head and there is about half and inch between the speakers and my ears. Are there separate foam inserts I can purchase to push the speakers closer to my ears?

Cheers

Reid

Kevin N: unless your having problem hearing I wouldn't change a thing, however you can get creative with some foam from a craft shop and hot glue it into the space for your speaker then place you speaker on the foam using Velcro. i hope this helps Mar 24, 2015

Reid L: Yeah I ended up jerry rigging it with some foam and double sided tape, hot glue is much better idea, cheers Mar 24, 2015

christopher p: UCLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator will give you. the better sound on both speakers and microphone because it's built for open face/half helmet noise cancelation ..the catch being it comes with 2 vibration microphones that mount around the brow area where the hbc200 has boom-less microphones that are built in to the end of the speaker insert but as I said for the best sould and clearest talk sould go hbc 200hd Oct 27, 2014

Guy B: Can't say for sure. I have them in an Arai XD and they fit pretty well. On complaint -- the boomles microphone stuffed in the earpiece gets muffled by the foam in the cheekpads. Because of this, phone call quality is unacceptable... Speaker volume is great though. And possibly more important, the Bluetooth pairing is effortless. pairs with my Garmin 590 every time, 100%...

J Fernando R: I have a full face helmet and the mike works fine. It's in the earpiece and perhaps less likely to have wind noise distortion than a mike that sits in front of the face/chin. Hope this helps. Feb 10, 2014

A shopper asked: If so, will the microphone work in the open face position as well as the closed? May 19, 2013

RevZilla: The U-Clear HBC200 would fit inside an Evoline 3, but it may be tight with the speakers. The speaker pockets on the Evoline 3 are designed for the Shark system, and the U-Clear speakers a larger. Otherwise though, the system should work. The Microphone technology is very "touchy" and while it would work, it can also be a major head ache to fine tune. Essentially, there is a mic/sensor on each wire to the speakers. Once the speakers are installed, the mic/sensors need to be facing in such a manner that they would create a triangle, with the peak of the triangle being at your mouth. This "targets" the mic to where your voice is coming from and it blocks out anything that isn't at the "point" of the triangle. As you can image though, since the triangle isn't visible, it can be very tough to get both mic's pointed at just the right spot.

Ultimately, if you need something low profile with good sound that works in open and closed conditions, check out the Sena SMH10-11 or the SMH10R.

A shopper asked: I'd like to know if I'd be able to send voice text and ask siri for directions without messing with the phone itself Feb 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Yes, you can access Siri, provided you have the latest updates for your iPhone. The only quirk is that there is a few second delay between pressing the button on the U-Clear headset and actually initiating the voice command on your iPhone. Sometimes you end up not hearing the "beepeep" that Siri gives you when she is ready for a command. Feb 4, 2013

RevZilla: No, the U-CLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator is not compatible with any other bluetooth intercom system (not even the HBC100). However, it is possible to pair the HBC200 to bluetooth cell phone and then call someone who has a different brand bluetooth headset paired to their cell phone. Jan 23, 2013

David H: Could you please clairfiy, your website says; "Open intercom with other brands of Bluetooth communicators
Cross-band intercom enables you to connect with other riders, even if they have another brand of communicator" and the latest firmware says "Open Intercom with other vendor Bluetooth helmet communications products"

RevZilla: While the U-CLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator is ideal for 3/4 helmets, it is not recommended for half helmets. For half helmets we would suggest either the Sena SPH10H Bluetooth Intercom For Half Helmets or the Cardo Scala Rider Half Helmet Audio Kit. Jan 23, 2013
