Uclear is the bomb!!!!
What a great product, we love it! We switched from Scalariders. We rode for several days on our honeymoon and did not charge them. They lasted great! One of my comm pods was acting weird the other day and as luck would have it the company is here in town. I went by thinking it was just not in the right place in my helmet and it was the pod. They replaced all of it!!! Great product, great company and great service. Perfect combination. You know you want a couple.

A great product with enough extras
The product is great. Easy to use/install and great clarity. The only exception is when using the call feature on a half helmet. The wind noice can be an issue. I also had a problem wth the extra speakers that came with the product but UClear sent me a replacement within days.

The device looks more complicated than what it is. Once I down loaded the latest ferm ware, both devices I have linked up and work great.
I have two HBC200. One for my Schubert's C3 and HBC200 HD for my 3/4 Retro Helmet. Once I up graded the Firm Wear to the newest version off the Web site, both link up perfict to each other and my blue tooth applications. I link to my phone and listen to down loaded music or answer the phone hands free. No one knows that I am on my bike. I use big gloves in cold weather, and I can control the switches with ease.

Amazing clarity, but hard to make calls
I purchased this unit specifically because its engineered for 1/2 helmets, and I was drawn to the fact it doesn't require a boom mic. I had the opportunity to use it extensively on a 5 day road trip recently with some friends who use Cardo units.

As a single-user system, it's fantastic as far as sound quality for music, and was excellent when receiving a call. Callers were barely able to distinguish that I was on a Bluetooth system. They could hear me very clearly, even though I couldn't hear the sound of my own voice over the wind noise at 70+ mph with a shorty helmet. (I ride a Road King with a windshield#.

Having said that, some of the button presses are a little awkward - double-tapping to fast-forward or single-tap to increase volume - if you didn't double tap fast enough, volume went up when not desired. That took a little while to get the hang of, but after a while it was okay. Trying to press the "main" button and one of the "up" or "down" buttons simultaneously wasn't easy either. The ear-buds have multiple tips for a wide range of ear sizes and I generally found them comfortable, with good sound quality, though not as good #as to be expected# as my Shures, or any other decent brand of buds.

My major complaints involve 3 things:
I could not get the unit to update to the newest firmware, no matter how many times I installed/uninstalled the updater software - and I tried several computers. The email I sent to Uclear Support 8 days ago now is still unanswered....

I use a Samsung Galaxy s5 phone, and no matter what, I could not voice-dial a call. I was able to initiate a call - but only using the redial button-combination...so effectively I could only call one number. I'm still trying to determine if this is an issue with the unit or the capabilities of the phone. #The instructions in the manual indicate a 2 second press of the main and up buttons to initiate a voice call, but all this did was redial the last number I called from the phone#. Pressing the main/down buttons for 2 seconds seemed to initiate the "s-voice" feature of the phone, but could only be used if the phone was capable of hearing your voice - so being in your pocket, while on the road prevents this. The mics don't seem to want to communicate with the phone's dialer.

While I didn't attempt to pair with another Uclear device, I did try to pair with a Cardo - scala system. NO LUCK. This may be the result of not being able to do the Firmware update - I can't even find out what firmware version it's currently using. It also seems that it's not as simple as just linking up with another device and away you go .... they would have to pair their device with you, giving up a slot they may use for their GPS or phone. If there's 2 scalas and one Uclear, which one gets paired, and then you can only intercom with that person, not the other scala.....not as intuitive as they might have you believe.

The bottom line for me is that the boomless-mic technology seems like it's capable of everything they say in terms of sound quality. Intercomming with other brands , and phone calling needs to be improved.

I look forward to hearing any differing opinions or suggestions on how I could improve my experience with this product.

Could'nt ask for more
My first communication system and I couldn't think of anything else to add. Music sounds great. Answering a phone call with just saying hello. Link up to other Uclear users takes only a few minutes to figure out and setting up - but perfect. The only thing I can't speak to is durability - havent had a chance to put it through the paces. Great all around and cant imagine spending more $ for other units.

It's worth the money! !
I was skeptical at first cause I have a loud full face helmet so I bought this package with the earphones , just in case , but wow was I wrong !! The speakers are loud and the calls are clear !! Noise cancelation works excellent !! Love it !! Couldn't be happier !!the speakers work so good I haven't even used the earphones ! I thought it wouldn't be loud enough but I had to turn it down after I noticed I could hear everything at highway speeds !!

Great product!
I used to have a different helmet with the Sena SMH10R headset installed, and it worked very well during my commutes to work to listen to podcasts, directions, or even take phonecalls. It was, however, difficult to hear when going over 70mph, and the speakers in that unit made music sound so tinny that it wasn't worth it.

When the above helmet/headset was stolen (grrrrr!), I went for the HBC200HD simply to try something else out. I'm using a totally different helmet now, so I can't give a direct comparison of the two products, but what I can say is that with the HBC200HD music sounds far better, and it seems to have better sound quality (or perhaps it's just louder), so I am able to clearly hear podcasts and audiobooks while commuting at highway speeds.

I absolutely love this headset... There's no going back once you get one!

Great for what it is.
Sound is good until anything above 60MPH, can still hear music but never all the lyrics depending on the volume of the song. In order to properly hear people on my ninja I have to tuck in under the windshield(double bubble) and pull the clutch in while talking. Mic picks up my voice very well, all depends on how good your helmet reduces air flow which also gives you better sound. I have the Bell vortex and having nothing else to compare to.

Will this communicator pair with the Harley Davidson 2014 models?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In order to have microphone capability to the 2014 radio, you will need to be wired. However, my local dealership is now selling a Bluetooth device for about $250 that fixes that. It basically is a Bluetooth unit wired to your plug that you would normally plug your headset into on your bike. I have seen it on a bike they are demo'ing it on, but am waiting for the warm weather to arrive and snow to melt before I buy this so I cannot personally speak to how well it works...maybe in April, but based on current weather here in Michigan...it will be more like May.
Not sure I understand the difference between the 200 and 200HD...is it only the longer mic design for the half-helmet rider? I can't find anything different in the specs, and the UCLEAR website's not very helpful in this regard either.
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: also it is backward compatible with the 100 and 200
I wear a half helmet and would get the ear bug kit. I'm not sure if the bugs would stay in my ears or that they would bother me. Can I switch them out for better ear bugs?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would think if you had bugs in your ear, they would bother you. Might want to see a doctor or pest control guy.
From the pictures I can see that this device uses a mini-USB jack and socket. That seems to be slightly outdated tech and will force me to carry an extra charger just for this. Is this true? Or is it a micro-USB jack just like my phone. Today, my buying decision for this product depends on this. I want to use this with a Shark Raw.
Roopesh S on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cable supplied is required to charge it because it is not a common end that I can tell, however the cable can be plugged in to any standard charging device accepting standard usb. A wall plug device is provided for charging out of the wall. I use my laptop since it's just easier for me. However you charge your phone, you can charge this, you just need to use the provided cable. Nice unit.
I was going to get the Harley FXRG helmet to use with this 200hd.. but the guy at Harley said the speakers would be to thick for the helmet. I liked the modular 2 in 1 helmet design.. any suggestions on something like that where it would work with the uclear 200hd?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I went with a helmet with sockets built in, from the reviews a lot of people say it's thick but IMO with a built in socket it will be okay.
I have a CT-Z HELMET open face. This item would be better or UCLEAR HBC200?
CHIN TIONG L on Oct 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi. If you only use the ct-z get the HBC200. if you have a half helmet get the HD which comes with a set up for both a half helmet and a 3/4 or full
Hi.. Will this work in a Harley FXRG Modular helmet?
Patrick D on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a half hemet and it works perfect.
It has so many ways to mount.
It has olso a clip that you can mount it any way you want it.
Also a big plus you can connect pair with any other brand
Can you link other manufactures with either the hbc200 or hbc200hd? With the earpieces that come with the hbc200 work with the hbc200hd? I believe I just stuck between the two models as I don't want to get the hbc200 if the hd version has more options. Please help! Thanks
A shopper on Feb 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've seen it done on youtube, and tried to find out how myself so I emailed uclear tech support. They confirmed yes you can and sent me these following instructions;
CROSS BRAND INSTRUCTIONS
The HBC200 can connect to most any intercom system that is able to bluetooth to a phone. I have paired a G9 without issue here in the office. I will go through the steps and requirements below.

The cross brand intercom is a direct connection. The other brand thinks we are a cell phone, and when the Uclear starts its intercom, it will pull the "other brand" of intercom with it onto the Uclear's intercom network.

If you have any follow-up questions please do not hesitate to reply to this email.
Rules governing Cross Brand Intercom

1. The cross brand intercom connection is a direct connection. Since we establish the connection through the other units bluetooth by making think we are cell phone, it a direct connection.
2. The "other brand" will have to join the Uclears intercom. The Uclear unit cannot join another Brands intercom.
3. The Uclear needs to be on at least 2.07f firmware.
4. Only the Uclear can initiate intercom.

Cross Brand Paring instructions.
1. Turn on "Sena" unit.
2. "Sena" Initiate a bluetooth cell phone pairing. (This is in the Sena manual)
3. Uclear - From the off setting, press and hold the Uclear/Power button for ten seconds. It will turn on, turn off, and then turn back on into cross brand intercom pairing mode.
4. They should pair at this point. If you want to save the pairing, turn both units off, and back on again.
Will the speakers on Uclear work with a modular helmet with the nose guard for snowmobiling?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes great bluetooth
Will this unit fit open face and full face helmets, or is it only for half helmets?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This unit has two types of speakers, One that can be mounted in the helmet in the ear area and another that is a set of ear buds that are used with a half helmet. I used this in a Modular helmet and the ear buds are extra.
