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 manufacturer's warranty

Note: Some of the features listed above require updating the firmware to the latest version. Download the latest version firmware here.

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.

Works very well for my uses.
Maybe I need more friends. Maybe I just don't like being with people. Who knows. But the vast majority of my miles are solo, so I've never had any desire for an intercom.

So why am I reviewing this?

Because I use it as a bluetooth link to my cell phone and GPS and my experience with those uses has been fantastic.

For a while, I never had any means to be contacted when on the road. A stop at a pay phone or using the motel's phone was my way to stay in touch - if I wanted.

Well, the wife likes to be able to know I'm OK when she wants. So, I carried a cell phone. But I'd only look at it when I was stopped - if I remembered. This did not lead to happy wife, so I did not have happy life....

Then came along bluetooth and those idiotic ear pieces. Took me a while, but I found one that would work with a helmet and plugged my ear well enough to work as an earplug. I'd have to pull over to talk, but at least I knew when she called. And to her credit, she did not call as often as I feared.

I also started to use a GPS that routed and became good at plotting routes to desired locations and roads. What I wasn't good at was checking the screen and tended to miss turns. Which, when you are in the middle of nowhere tends to mean you missed something you wanted to see.

About a year ago, I got a new helmet which fit even closer than the last one. This made getting the earpiece to stay put even harder as the helmet went on. I also got a new GPS (Garmin Monterra - nice unit) that had bluetooth, but I could not pair both the phone and the GPS at the same time.

So, I started looking for helmet speakers that could do the job. I liked the UClear for the lack of a microphone wire. Would make the installation much easier. Reviews seemed good, could pair with both devices, and the mount would not be permanent.

When I got the headset, I was initially upset as the speakers were too thick to mount in my helmet. They touched my ears! But I was able to use a razor knife to cut out the hard plastic lining that sat over the protective foam which recessed the speakers enough to clear my ears. Didn't have to remove any foam, so there should not be any loss of protection. The best part is that I was able to cut such a form fitting pocket that the speakers look like they were built into the helmet.

The wires laid easily behind the liner with just enough of a pigtail to attach to the exterior unit. Clipping the control to the lower lip of the helmet took some work due to the way the neck roll was designed, but it worked out.

The UClear paired with my phone and GPS with no issues. When you turn on the UClear, you get a tone as each device connects.

Even with 25db ear plugs in, the audio is nice and clear. GPS directions and can easily carry on a phone conversation. I do not place calls when in motion, but answering only requires a press of the large button on the UClear.

On longer trips where time passes without GPS directions, the device does shut off, but it plays a tone before so that you know it is happening. If I were to play music, that would not happen, but I don't ride with music. There might also be an issue with the music blocking the GPS directions too. Never tried, so I don't know.

I have no problem with the headset lasting a full day on the road. Easy enough to recharge, but don't lose the cable as I can not get a standard micro USB to work. I made sure to put a tag on the cable so that I know exactly which one is for the headset.

When commuting during the week, I run about 60 minutes a day and the headset lasts the week on a charge. Even with some after-work errands, I have not had the device run out of charge for the daily use.

While I have no other communicator style system to compare against, compared to the earpiece I was using, the audio is MUCH clearer and talking on the phone is dramatically better. I no longer have to stop for people to understand what I'm saying.

super tuff
I was recently in a crash that the main blow was on the same side of my helmet as this hands free. It came out un scathed and still works perfectly. The chin bar on my neotec was completely broke. My favorite part was that it was boomless. It worked great even at freeway speeds I could make clear calls. I liked the simplicity of only 3 buttons. Once you memorized what combinations did what it was easy to use riding with gloves on.

Cons, I could never get my BMW navigator 4 to work at the same time as my iPhone at least with any kind of reliability. The usb charge hole is pretty small and I always had to use the included cable to charge it.

Good features - but not for all Helmets
I purchased the UClear HBC200 from Revzilla about four months ago and have put 1600 miles on the system. I'm riding a Shoei Neotec Helmet, which has round speaker cut-outs built into the helmet. Installation was simple and everything fit behind the cheek pieces of the helmet with ease. However, there is somewhat of a snag with fitting the Speaker/Mic into the recessed Shoei pockets. The pockets are too small of an opening, and the UClear speakers have the Mic as part of the speaker, which will not fit inside the pockets without cutting out a space for it. You have round pocket opening, but the UClear piece is more horseshoe shaped. At first I thought the double sided tape and velcro would work to keep the speakers in place, but after 3-1/2 months the speakers (both of them) are falling out all the time. This is a real pain in the behind now!

The quality of sound in the speakers is good for listening to music and telephone calls, but don't expect good sound quality for phone conversations above 50mph. While you might hear them fairly well - they cannot hear you very well and your voice is muffled and muted to them. It is very hard for them to hear you until such time as you stop or reduce your speed down lower than 45 to 50 mph.

I want to like the UClear system, but can honestly say it is best utilized around town where speeds rarely go over 45mph. Also, if your cheek pads cover the mic boom in the ear pockets you will not get good voice communication on your end to the other caller. Just won't! All in all.... I can't give this my blessing and you should look elsewhere. The potential is there, but the application for all helmets is not.

works well and very cool
before pairing to bluetooth devices, I recommend updating the firmware. I could not connect other devices other than Uclear until I updated the firmware. Love the boom less feature and sound clarity is just fine. However, I do not listen to music while riding and only use this as a communication device and sometimes to answer phone calls.

Wish I had gotten the two-pack
Excellent product all-around. Loved how easy it was to install, and simple to pair up to multiple communicators, and devices.

I noted before my purchase that other reviews stated it was hard to hear at higher speeds, and hard to BE heard at higher speeds (above 55mph)... I can say that this isn't entirely true in my experience. I can hear it fine all the way upto 85mph, and can BE heard upto about 70mph. If you have a bike with decent wind deflection (larger windscreen or fairing) you will likely share this experience. I would imagine that helmet noise would make a notable difference in this experience as well, but my helmet is probably a 7 out 10 on quietness. What I really love about the U-clear, is no one can tell I'm riding when they are speaking with me on the phone until I tell them, and then they don't believe it because they can't hear the engine or wind noise. My wife has to ask first if I'm riding or pulled over when we speak on the U-clear because she still can't tell!

I use it for Navigation, Music, Communicator, and Phone... all running at the same time for most everytime I ride. Never had an issue with the battery running out yet, and longest ride with that so far has been 6hrs total. It is a real blast with several riders pair up on the U-clear, and my only regret is that I didn't get the dual pack for my wife when she rides on the back with me. Definitely going to be a future purchase for us!

Awesome product!
Hello all,

So I bought the Uclear HBC200 a few weeks ago after months of researching different options. I have to say, the install was beyond easy. I have an HJC RPHA MAX helmet and these speakers fit perfectly in the cutout area. Clipping the unit itself to the helmet was easy as well. The only thing that was slightly aggravating was not the physical install but the updating of the firmware. Not that I had to, I actually used it as is for a while before doing so, but I figured why not update. It might make you want to slam your head in to the wall.

As for the performance, I've gotten up to 70 mph on my bike and the sound was still loud and crisp. I don't feel like I'm ever lacking any volume while riding. The simplicity of just three buttons make it easy to use as well while riding and even with gloves on. A great feature I like is that when someone calls you, you only need to say "pick up" and the unit will answer. There are a few other hands free commands, but I have yet to try those out. Talking while riding at 60mph, I did have to speak a little louder than I normally would, but those on the other end of the line said I did not sound like I was shouting or talking loudly and they also could not tell that I was riding.

While 200.00+ for a unit may seem pricey, it is well worth the investment. I use an Apple Iphone 5s and it pairs easy and I have had no problems with it disconnecting or losing signal. Should something come up later on that I do not like, I will try and update this review.

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

Love this product
Everyone said the install was easy and it couldn't have been easier. 3 months later there isn't a scratch or mark on the helmet from the attachments which was something I was worried about. EASY to install and EASY to move around. I haven't had one of these before so for me, the buttons are easy to use. There may be others that are easier but not having any experience, I find these very easy to sync and move around. I have the Arai RxQ 2013 model. Highly recommend.

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.
