Previously, we checked out an earpiece specifically designed to work with the Motorola gp340 two way radio series. Now, we’ll be checking out the Cp040 2-pin earpiece, an affordable and versatile little doohickey that’s amazingly exciting, but additionally does very little to damage one’s bank account.
The Motorola cp040 earpiece is much like the GP300 earpiece. It is small, clever and inexpensive, however it also is quite good value for money. EarpieceOnline lists this earpiece for about £11.50, but it’s a pretty good buy for the price.
We will be honest, everything is pretty essential on that model, however the earpiece performs its operation well and definitely will not let anybody down.
The sound quality of the Cp040 2-pin earpiece is excellent indeed and the PTT ‘push to talk’ utility is handy and simple to use. As usual, the Motorola cp040 earpiece includes a sprung clothing clip that attaches easily to most items of outfits (you may find it a challenge if you’re planning on using it while dressed as the giant Sumo wrestler and competing on ‘Takeshi’s Castle’, but apart from that…).
As on the motorola gp300 series, because it only includes a two-pin plug, an adaptor block will be essential to be used with the Motorola gp320 and Motorola gp340 series of 2 way radios.
The ergonomic D-shaped earpiece alone is comfortable to wear and mostly discreet. It may be effortlessly utilised in either the left or right ear, depending on the user’s individual liking. The Motorola cp040 earpiece fits most ear dimensions, so unless you happen to be Prince Charles or Martin Clunes (Editor’s Note: or my Uncle Steve), you shouldn’t have many comfort problems, if any.
There is no Kevlar cable on this one, however but it positively isn’t one of the best model around. However, this is not to put that the CP040 is really a inferior earpiece, not at all. It just isn’t the best.
Overall, the CP040 earpiece is practical, rather than flashy. It does its job without frills (but additionally no temper tantrums). This is a excellent, solid product from a team that excels at producing such earpieces. It also provides enormous value for money, too.
