UCLEAR HBC200HD Helmet Bluetooth Communicator - Dual Pack
ease of use ohhh yeah!!
when wife bought this product I wasn't sure of it because of the cost (very reasonable# as we had been using midlands #not good for touring bikes)again her perchase. but after spending about 5 mins. installing and going for a ride on I-80 into town, about 20 miles, at speeds of up to 75mph and at distance of 20 to 300 yds. during the ride I can honestly say WOW. seriously at 75 mph wind was a bit hard on each other hearing but at 65 to 70 no problem and to boot while we were riding I received a cell call on the Bluetooth and it was clear as a bell and with just a touch of the button I was talking away. I highly recommend this system its just what we needed for our trips oh and when we went to visit our son in CO his bmw sys paired right up with ours bang for the you bet! try'em I think you will agree!

Very disappointed with the product. To be fair, I hope that the microphone placement is correct but don't see any other way it could work. You can feel the pads for the microphone and makes it very un comfortable creating pressure points on your head. Clarity is terrible even when synced with the GPS. Not sure that they should be used with half helmets.

Overall great product!
I'm very satisfied with this product. I wear a half helmet and ride without a windshield. The sound quality is very good for listening to music, communications and even phone calls. The fact that it answers the phone when it rings by me just saying hello is great. People on the other end of communication like phone and riders hear me great. The only issue I have, and why I did not rate it higher is because to set it up so that rider and passenger both listen to the same music requires that the units be re-paired every time. Too difficult to do while riding, so you have to plan it in advance and it's a bit of a pain. Maybe a future firmware release can fix that. I don't know.

Awesome with Half Helm and earbuds!!
Purchased this to communicate with a buddy on our latest 10 day road trip. Used with firmware 2.07
On my 2006 HD Heritage Softail Classic it worked awesome, sound was clear for intercoms and music. My buddy said he could barley hear the exhaust unless I cracked her open.
Only thing missing is an APP to preset configurations.
Used Sony Xperia Z2 built in Smart Connect APP to auto start music upon connecting to the Uclear via bluetooth.
Had trouble with voice commands to make phone calls... My Harley was probably too loud for the Sony phone's voice recognition.
Using the speakers(v2) in an Icon Variant in windy conditions on my CBR 600 RR proved to be just average for sound; this is probably due to the wind noise of the helmet. Probably going to switch it to earbuds as well and deal with a little bit of cord inconvenience. Or find a helmet that is windproof.
Just installed the new North American firmware v2.15 last night, Noticed music control was more responsive for switching tracks and adjusting volume. Haven't tested anything else yet.
and the APP which is in BETA, Only use so far was the battery life of the Uclear. I hope they develop this further for group configurations.
Great for Half Helmet + earbuds setup! Boomless is the way to go here.
Average for Icon Variant + speakers. Only tested music so far.
To be tested, Icon Variant + earbuds...

Very good bluetooth communication unit
This is a very good intercom system, was unable to distinguish whether the phone call was from a car or a motorbike using an open face helmet on a Fatboy.

Easy to set-up but voice activation needs work.
Purchased for use as a intercom system between my wife and I on motorcycle trips. System set-up and operation was easy. The problem we have is the intercom will randomly turn on do to road noise and fill the helmet with static noise. We are still working with the mic location in the helmet to minimize the static. We are using this system with HTC 3/4 helmets.

Easy to use and suprisingly clear
bought these primarily so i could listen to music when i ride, which it does supebly, headset was easy to install in my helmet and even easier to sync to my phone. within min i was rocking out, sound is pretty clear though there is a bit of wind noise that can make the music tough to hear depending on wind direction and speed. i find that the modular helmet i'm using has less of a chin skirt resulting in more wind noise. the place these sets shine is when your riding with someone, communication is clear and easy with your fellow riders and the range between two was 3 to 4 blocks line of sight and only about 1 block when not in sight. i'm looking forward to grouping more as my friends purchase them to see how far they reach. all in all a great purchase, and i highly recommend them!

Great product that works as advertised.
I now have these in several of my helmets and love them The log ear buds really work and voice quality is better than I expected. Several friends have them and when we ride we pair them together.
