- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is one of the best investments I have made in a while. The military grade technology that Uclear has made is like no other. I was given this product to test and my expectations where met. The unit was easy to install in my helmet that had speaker pockets. The sound inside the helmet is just like having high quality head phones in your ears and the intercom system is amazing! The distance that you can get with the intercom system was a considerable distance (with only 2 units- it increases with every aditional unit). The way the unit triangulates your voice and gets rid of all wind and external noise other than your voice was amazing. I could be skiing down the mountian and talk on the phone at the same time with no problems. The connection between my phone or ipod was never lost and I had endless music all weekend, battery life was no issue for two days of skiing. The HBC 220 had easy button commands, so never once did I have to take my hands out of my gloves to change the song or answer a call.
The weather also did not affect it. Battery life was not minimized even in the negative temperatures that it was exposed to. And wet conditions didn't even phase it. The only thing I wish had been engineered differently was the size of the buttons. AT first it was difficult to find the correct button and push with gloves, but once I got used to it it was not as difficult.
Overall the HBC 220 unit was the best money can buy. I only wish all my friends had one.
