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 4.2 5 42 42
Great alternative to a boom mic system I needed something I could listen to my music/gps direction but didnt want to get a system that used a boom system. Considering the constraints of trying to make speakers that fit inside a helmet that also have built in mics, the sound quality is good. You're not going to get rich studio quality sound but you can hear your music/directions just fine. My riding buddy also got one of these so we can talk and it is great. They sync up in seconds and we can talk just like we are sitting right next to each other at a table, He can hear me just fine when I ride with my visor up and my two brothers exhaust is screaming. We get great range too (about 1/4 mile). Only downside is the unit that sits on the outside is a little bigger than I like (compared to the Sena units) but its not a big deal. August 24, 2015
Simple and easy to use This took 5 minutes to install and the battery lasts 2-3 days with basic bluetooth use and GPS. I have not used it as a rider to rider communicator just rider to phone and GPS. August 17, 2015
I love the no boom thing. Easy to use. Easy to charge. Easy to update. Good for communicating, but the sound quality for music is "iffy" if you live in a really windy area like me (Oklahoma). If you have a fairing, it would probably solve the issue, but I don't have one on my Guzzi v7. Mine did freeze up during DFU mode, and I had to return it, but it was an easy process, so I can't complain. August 10, 2015
Very simple to use while riding This product is pretty good, works well and easy to use while riding. The only feature I don't like is when the phone rings the slightest noise answers the call even if you don't mean to answer. Overall the product works well. July 13, 2015
It seems to work good. I have not had a chance to do a bike to bike communication yet as no one else in my part have one of these. Though it works good for phone calls though they know I am not in my living room. I was able to talk with my Modular helmet open doing 80 on the freeway. It was unable to connect with another brand a Nolan N com. Not sure how it will work with others. The battery lasts quite a long time. I wish it would get a little louder at freeway speeds some soft music is hard to hear. I am sure the earbuds would help with this. July 6, 2015
Worth it Recommend this product. Very good and ready to use. June 22, 2015
Bang for the buck! There are so many communicators out there and I was a little worried it might be either hard to use or not durable. I was surprised that it was neither. Very easy to install, took less than 5 minutes. It's like anything else, read the manual. If anything, they have a quick reference on the manual book that helps if you don't feel like reading the whole thing. Sound quality was amazing! Although, once in a while, I would hear static. I don't know if it was because my phone or not but I heard of other reviews that there's static from time to time. It doesn't bother me as much. It usually comes when it's waiting for the next song on my phone to play. I haven't got a chance to try communicating with other riders yet due to a motorcycle accident that I'm still recovering from but I did get a chance to make phone calls. Others said that they didn't even notice I was on a bike! At first, I was screaming and they asked why. Obviously told them I'm riding my motorcycle and they were amazed. So I talked normal and it was still clear for them. Would definitely recommend this! June 15, 2015
Great buy Installs into your helmet easily and quickly. Best way to listen to your music, and be connected to your phone for phone calls and other alerts. Have not fully tried out the texting through talk, to be honest Siri has enough trouble with my southern accent as it is. phone calls and music are great though. Only down would be at higher speeds (85+) it sometimes is a little hard to hear the music. I also do no have my windscreen all the way up either... I would buy again, oh wait this is my second one, first one died in a crash, rather the buttons were scrapped off when I had to lay down my old bike May 25, 2015

Jeff B: 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

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.

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

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

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

Jeff B: 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

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)
Jeff B: 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

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff B: I've used my UCLEAR units with multiple types of helmets and they work great in each. I prefer audio pouches for half helmet since they hold speakers in place and keep the wind from blowing directly on microphone. I've used the earbuds (UEA-L) for lower speeds (40 - 60 mph) however Echo half helmet audio pouches work better at freeway speeds. UCLEAR's Pro Mics are also an option for 3/4 helmets. Jul 7, 2015
Reply to Jeff Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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

A shopper asked: When you talk with other riders paired to this device, is it a true "conference" conversation where all riders can participate in conversation at the same time or do you have to push buttons on the set to change who you want to speak with like the Scala Q3 model? Jul 24, 2015

Daniel M: We have used the Uclear HB200 with 4 riders. All 4 riders can talk and listen to the conversation at the same time while in intercom mode. If you stay in the intercom mode, just talk and listen. If you want to listen to music, you must end the intercom mode. To start the intercom mode, any rider presses the UP button and all riders are connected to intercom mode. Overall, very impressed with performance. The range was excellent. The quieter the helmet, and the slower the speed you're traveling, the better you can talk and hear the conversation. Jul 24, 2015

Daniel S asked: Do the speakers fit inside the cutouts on a Shoei RF-1200 without using a dremel to hack them up? Apr 7, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Eyon K: No. They did fit fine in my RF-1100, but not in my RF-1200. I switched to Sena 20S which fit much better, but not perfectly flush (95% perfect fit). However, the sound quality, wind noise cancellation, and sound clarity above 60mph is FAR superior with the Sena 20S - there is just no substitute for a wired mic velcro'd to the inside of your helmet right by your lips. Everyone I talk to on the phone, passengers, and other riders in my party noticed the difference. And the ability to pair easily with smartphone app is a big plus for me. May 27, 2015

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

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
