UCLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator - Single Pack
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.

I keep telling the voices in my head to leave me alone as I am on the phone.
Lets face it on a long trip with your bike and no one to talk to but yourself, we can get a little bored (or as I like to call it stark raving mad). The Uclear HBC200 is the perfect solution to that problem. I installed this into a Scorpion Exo helmet, and although the the speakers were hard to fit the rest of the instalation was easy. I love the idea of no boom in my helmet. I mean, come on, i can hardly fit my head in there much less accessories. From the first call I was shocked, I had to tell the person on the other end that I was on my bike, to which they replied no way. I am in 4th gear on the interstate going 75 MPH and they had no idea. That is amazing. This is one of those product you just have to try it to believe it. Now that I have the HBC200 I listen to music on the way to work and talk on the phone on the way home. What else is there to say except I love this thing.

I'm in the motorcycle business and have been using these products for several years now. The sound quality is amazing and the overall product quality is outstanding. Highly recommend!

Great product, Great company
My son and I bought the HBC 200 for our motorbike helmets and love it. It is loud and clear to around 110KPH here in Victoria, Australia. Took a little fiddling to set up but works first time every time once paired to each other and to the mobile phones. I have two open face helmets, one with a visor that is very noisy with wind noise, riding a Harley that is also as loud as you get (D&D pipes). The 200 filters most of the noise. We ride a lot in the mountains and have been able to warn the other about hazards such as cars cutting corners, branches on the roads, washaways and so on.
I then ordered extra speaker kits for the other helmets and got great service from Lauren at Uclear including very quick email responses to my queries.
The boomless microphone system works much better than I thought it possibly could.

easy to install and operate
been using the hbc200 for a year and its been great no issues what so ever. Very clear sound comes through the speakers. sometimes when I'm talking to someone via phone i have to repeat myself because they can't hear me but that may just be my snug fitted helmet. But over all a great product

I have had the unit for abut 5 rides so far. I have not been able to test the rider to rider function yet. But for music and calls it has been great. It pauses the music when a call comes in and restarts it when the call is over. I have received calls at well above highway speeds and the caller was able to hear and understand me without a problem.

Awesome product for music and phone!
I looked at all the options for in helmet communications and this one stood out. I was worried about full face, as the boomless mics would be covered by the ear pads. When I got the product and made a call on it through my iPhone 4S, the callee said I sounded muffled. I updated the software, and it sounded a little better, but still muffled. So I ordered the pro headphones that have extensions for the mics and it works like a champ now! It does exactly what I wanted it to do and the pro headphones sound amazing. I highly recommend it on here and I've been telling my friends to get some. Well worth the price!

Better than expected
My buddy and I made good use of the HBC200s on a trip
around Moab. I was amazed how clear the intercom function works. The line of sight communication distance for us was approximately one quarter mile or more. Pairing was easy. When I ride solo I use it frequently for listening to music from my smart phone via the bluetooth connection. My only gripe is the volume at maximum is not always loud enough. Just an FYI, helmet normally used is a Shoei DS Hornet
