About the Clarion RCB-199

Your in-dash receiver features built-in Bluetooth, but your callers keep asking you to repeat yourself. That's because your receiver's built-in microphone may not be effective in some problem vehicles. If your car stereo has a 3.5mm mic input, just connect this noise-canceling microphone, use its visor mount to place it in a good spot, and they'll hear you loud and clear. Warranty: 1 year.

What's in the box:

  • Microphone (with attached 13.25' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector)
  • Mounting bracket (installed)
  • 4 Self-adhesive cable clips

More details on the Clarion RCB-199

Mark G.

Product Research


Overview: The Clarion RCB-199 is an external microphone which can be connected to a Clarion or other aftermarket head unit with built-in Bluetooth that features a 3.5mm microphone input. The RCB-199 external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of some Bluetooth-enabled head unit.

3.5mm Connector: The microphone features an attached 13.25' cord terminated by a right-angle male mono-3.5mm connector which plugs into the microphone input on the rear-chassis of your compatible Clarion or aftermarket head unit.

Mounting Bracket: The microphone also features an integrated sun-visor clip for mounting the external microphone in your vehicle. The integrated bracket allows the microphone to swivel left-to-right and rotate up-or-down.

its standard phone mic for a car radio
[ ANTONIO  Jul 15, 2014 ]
Not sure about that. I would look up the specs on the clarion mic, sensitivity etc. and then find a mic recommended for that computer and compare them. Hope that helps.
