Pros: Sleek and easy to use
Design: What is nice it worked very well with my 2011 Smith Variant and was very easy to install. Visually, it is much more streamlined than the Smith (or Giro) OEM Bluetooth option that Skullcandy provides. What is also a great benefit of the UClear is that it is NOT proprietary and you are not limited to just your ski helmet, it will work with almost any helmet that accepts aftermarket headphones. Pairing with my iPhone4 was simple and very easy.
Use: "Answer" or "Pick up" is all you need to receive a phone call which adds very well to the wireless design. Even while skiing, I received a phonecall, I didn't have to stop skiing or miss a pole plant to answer a call. Noise cancellation was also the best I have experienced in any bluetooth set up from both my end in listening and also from the person on the other end. Music from my iTunes was very clear and the sound was on par with most open air headphones. The buttons on the controller were very easy and intuitive to operate. Volume was easy control with beeps for each time you made an adjustment.
Overall: This is the best bluetooth unit I have used yet. You can tell a lot of thought went into the design with the intention for who the markets will be using it. While the UClear isn't inexpensive, it is not cheap either, the HBC100 is a very well made unit and worthy of the price. Quality never comes cheap and the Uclear is is worth the price.
