UClear UBC200. Great for those who don't much use the microphone.

Whichever one you get, make sure it is firmware updatable. Also cross-brand intercomm compatible, if you use it for that a lot. I know the latest Sena and Uclear systems are. Not sure about others.

Don't buy the smh 10r. The jog dial on the others is super convenient. I'd hate to have to fumble around for a button with riding gloves. Also, that one has separate battery you have to find a place for. that..

The Sena SMH-10 is great. It's intuitive and easy to operate, even with gloves on.

Don't get the HBC100. If you decide on Uclear, go with at least the HBC100Plus, which is firmware upgradable and share most of the features of the HBC200.

I started out with an HBC100Plus, liked it so much that I upgraded to the HBC200 and put the 100Plus on my kid's helmet.

I wear a Shoei Neotec for road riding, and the noboom makes for a real clean system on the flip-up helmet.

I have the Sena 20s. I like having Bluetooth control of music when I ride and it's super easy to answer calls on the go. Great for those last minute calls from friends saying change of plans.

I've had my HBC200 for a while now and been pretty happy with it. The lack of a boom mic is pretty nice.

I will admit though I am considering one of the Sena systems though and giving this one to my wife - mainly for the ability to pair it with my bike as well as with the phone. While the HBC is supposed to be able to pair with 2 devices at once, it doesn't QUITE seem to work that way in real life.

Get the SMH10 with out the boom mic.

I have 2 helmets that I use this system on. One with a boom mic and speakers, and the other (my favorite) with a wired mic and ear buds.

IMO this is the best route.

Thanks man. I was in the market and came across the Sena as well. You pretty much summed everything up. Can I ask why the wired over the wireless? Better sound? Clearer?

Sena > UClear as far as technology and usefulness goes. You might not like the boom, but the recipients on the other end will.

I run a Sena SMH10-10 myself for over two years with zero issues. I have up to about dozen folks running the standard jog dial model and the R model and they all love it...it just comes down to preference on which Sena to buy.

I'm contemplating the 20S now bc we're getting into group riding situations where we need more than 4 people daisy chain. The new Sena has a camera attached to it, and many are eager to see how well that one goes. I personally prefer Hero GoPro's to capture video.

As far as bluetooth communications, Sena and Cardo (Scala Rider) are the top dogs.

My mic is hidden and never gets in the way. also, its away from any possible wind noise. The boom mic, works great but is just not "as" good. It probably fine for most people though.

I use the surface-mount mic instead of the boom mic on my SMH-10 and I haven't had any issues with people understanding me. In fact the girlfriend says it's better quality than speakerphone, even when I'm on the freeway. Helmet is an HJC RPHA-10, btw.
