changer in Bluetooth communications. There is no other earbud product that
offers anything remotely close to UCLEAR's noise cancellation microphone
technology. Plus it's going to seriously enhance the sound quality when
listening to music."
Founded in January 2011, the company first introduced its products to Boise-
based WPS, one of the largest and fastest growing national motor sports
distributors. At the time, the company had three employees and has since grown
to eight full-time employees with distribution across six countries: the United

WPS VP and Fly brand manager Terry Bailey introduced us to two of their top
distributor relationships in Canada and Australia," BITwave COO Jeff Blood said.
Recently, UCLEAR received a Product of the Year award for Best Intercom from
Webbikeworld.com, a 'consumer reports' of the motorcycle industry. According to
Webbikeworld.com, "The new UClear HBC200 system (review) has, without a doubt,
the best standard headset and its audio processing capability is simply the best
we have ever used, period."
"This recognition really solidifies our belief that what we're doing is both
innovative and necessary." said Blood.
UCLEAR uses technologies found in military applications that surpass those of
other consumer communication systems of their kind. Additionally, patented
advanced echo cancellation and noise suppression technology accurately estimates
and suppresses background noise, allowing for effective full duplex quality
voice communication. The combination of all these technologies boosts the
speech quality for personal communication clarity while on the move.
The UCLEAR helmet communication system is prized for eliminating environmental
noise when traveling at high speeds. Motorcyclists, snowboarders, skiers,
cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts now can enjoy adventure at any speed
while connecting more freely with their world. All UCLEAR units feature
upgradeable firmware for enhancements and new features, providing UCLEAR users
the latest in digital communication technologies for years to come.
