Disappointed. How so many good reviews?
I purchased a Uclear HBC 100 plus Bluetooth unit for my motorcycle helmet. I need help getting it to work correctly.<br><br>So far I am regretting my purchase. I had high hopes based on the reviews. Sound quality is decent enough. But instructions are very small and leave a lot to be desired. Cannot register the unit on the Uclear site. It rejects the input and gives an error message in Chinese. So no way to figure out why it is rejecting registration. I cannot find a customer service number where anyone answers a phone. So.... zero tech support. Then the very limited functionality of a $150 unit. This thing is worth about $20 bucks for the few things that it does... and poorly at that.<br><br>So far a list of things I need help with.<br>1. Bluetooth ALWAYS auto answers. Even when auto answer feature on the phone is switched off.<br>2. Bluetooth has only ONE ringtone. That means my personalized ringtones do not make the transfer to the unit. So I don't know who is calling.<br>3. Bluetooth won't let you turn on "announce caller" feature. Even when turned on, it doesn't make it to the BT unit. Only that one same ringtone. So who is calling me? I don't know and I can't make a decision whether or not to pick up unless I pull over and get my phone out to see who it is...... But the darned thing has already auto answered to someone I didn't want to talk to. Grrrrr.<br>4. I cannot ever start the music from the BT unit. No big deal, I'll start it before I leave on my ride. BUT If I manually pause music, I cannot restart it. I have to stop my bike, get out my phone and manually restart music. WTF?<br>5. Phone will not recognize ANY voice commands if moving even 10 mph. USELESS. I have to pull over to a dead stop and place a call. Then I can start riding again. Call quality during the ride is pretty good.... Even at higher speeds. Just can't initiate voice command. HJC IS-Max II helmet. Not the best helmet out there, but not junk.<br>6. If I hit a bump on the bike the sound coming out of the speakers skips.<br>7. So far I have not figured out how to determine how much battery life I have left. The directions don't address this. I just have to wait until it dies.<br><br>No that I am researching on Uclear website. Their answer to everything is "Update the firmware" ON YOUR PHONE. According to the website, there is never anything wrong with the BT.<br><br>I am sooooo disappointed. Not worth the effort. If you want something that you can take out of the box and start using. And use the features of the phone, but something else. This is worth about $20 bucks in it's present state.

CBR 600RR - Great Sound
I used these on my 2006 CBR600RR, which has a two brothers exhaust, very loud, installed on it. I was just using it to listen to music until I thought to accept a call while riding in Washington, DC, and I was blown away by the fact that the person on the other side could actually hear me while I was revving the bike at 10k. The person said, he couldn't believe believe that I was riding and talking to him, no background noise at all. I must also credit Shoei for this, because the GT-Air is a solid sound proof helmet.<br><br>It does lack bass, but I'm not going to complain because after all you are riding and not sitting in a box with 12" sub woofers.

Great communicator!
Of several motorcycle communicators I've tried over time, this is the one that has proven most useful and effective, not only for maintaining telephone contact with the rest of the world, but also enabling me to listen to music, news, and navigation directions while riding.<br>I highly recommend this device.

Just what I needed
Was using ear-buds, with my cell phone, but dropped the bike once, and they ripped out of my ears,and broke in the socket!<br>Now, Bluetooth wireless stereo sound, to listen to music, and the radio on the internet. The sound though is not super loud, so at speed not so good, but who cares, you are riding!<br>The phone part is so different, as the sound is louder, and you can talk to people at 100 km\h, and they can hear you quite well considering the wind and engine noise.The best part is when the phone rings you just say "answer" and the thing connects you automatically! Not a miracle, but sweet. Haven't had need for the intercom, so far.<br>So far very happy with this.

Great price and good sound
Great product and very good sound. I paired this in my RF-1100 and it's great. Battery life is good use it on an hour and a half ride with music playing and calls coming in. Calls a crisp as people calling me didn't even know I was riding a motorcycle.

Crisp and Clear
This is a great product. I have two HJC helmets and I have a set of speakers in both. Takes a slight bit of adjusting to get them right. Music is loud and clear. Phone conversations are easy to hear and communicate (no WHAT DID YOU SAY!?!?! the whole time). Voice texting works great. I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

Best boom less unit out there
I paired this with my phone and installed in my quest helmet in less than 20 min sitting at the kitchen table.<br>Have used it on the highway , in town and around the local housing area.<br>I give it all fives stars as for the money you cannot beat it.<br>No Boom which in a close fitting helmet is important to me .<br>Pairing it to my phone was childs playy and if you can connect anything bluetooth to your phone this is a snap.<br>Yes these are not super high sound Bose sound muffling headset but is well with in the standards of other in helmet speakers, Im comparing them to EdSets at the time and they were fine.<br>I recieved a call from my wife and she asked me where I was and couldnt tell I was going down the highway at 75 on my ST1300 soyes I had a windshield but it was a perfect clear to her.<br>I also tried it on my sportbike (ZX1400) and the quality was still good but the speaker did get drowned out over 65 or 70 with my Quest helmet.<br><br>Overall I would recommend these to a friend , in fact I have and the ylike thm also !!!

Great communicator for the money, with some caveats...
Ease of install and the ability to easily move between helmets attracted me to the HBC100+. Most of the time it works well enough. My main complaint is if you're using earplugs, it doesn't get nearly loud enough - and yes, I know that sounds silly, but good earplugs will still allow you to hear while filtering out wind roar. Without plugs, these things get plenty loud, but combined with wind roar, that will = hearing damage in no time flat.<br>Anyway, as I said, it works fine most of the time. Now and then it inexplicably drops connection, almost always on the phone side of things. When I receive calls, the caller can't hear me and the unit doesn't respond to voice commands to pick up, but if I make the outbound call, it works perfectly. And yes, I've rebooted it and updated the firmware; no difference. It's just picky sometimes.<br>For music it works great all the time - my only ask would be that it be updated to accept voice commands for music, not just calls. If I hit a stretch of songs I don't like, it's kind of tiring to constantly reach up and double click the button to fast forward - I'd love to just say, "Next song."<br>This is a good buy if you don't want to spend double for other units out there - I would buy it again - the flexibility and relatively low expense to have other helmets ready for the unit makes it worthwhile. The other stuff I think are bugs that will be worked out in future versions.
