We consume a lot of time writing about Motorola radios, so we have decided to do a succession that focuses on the earpieces that relate to them.
Not only do a amount of decent businesses sell top-of-the-range walkie talkies that are both affordable and reliable, there are additionally a large array of 2 way radio earpieces that vary from inexpensive and cheerful (but nonetheless operational) to the last word in techno badassery (Editor’s Note: not really a word).
So, kicking off our new 5-part series celebrating walkie talkie earpieces, is the Motorola 2-pin earpiece.
Amazon lists this thing at a low £17.50, but the Motorola 2-pin earpiece is surprisingly high spec for such a inexpensive device.
First of all, it is completely versatile, as it fits into any motorola 2 pin two way radio. It may not be the best earpiece ever created, but it will fit with any number of diverse Motorola two way radios. Though, I should declare that the Motorola 2-pin earpiece does require an adaptor block to operate with GP320 and Motorola GP340 series 2 way radios (oh well, you can’t have everything!)
Secondly, the noise quality is superb; there will be no misunderstandings or botched communications when the Motorola 2-pin earpiece is in use, that is for sure. For such a cheap device, it actually reproduces noises amazingly clearly.
Thirdly, here are the features. These features are a bit thin on the ground when compared with some of the costlier Motorola earpieces, but they continue to increase the user experience and add to the complete product.
Want examples? Well, the Motorola gp300 earpiece is ergonomically made to fit your ear channel comfortably and is easily able to fit in either the left or the right ear (whatever you happen to favour).
It too has an in-built ‘push to talk’ button, so you are not dependent on your two way radio’s controls in order to send an outgoing signal. It also has a sprung metallic clothing clip that attaches the GP300 earpiece to whatever you happen to be dressed in, enabling you to be unobtrusive, as well as to prevent tangling yourself up in cable.
Overall, the GP300 is a fine two way radio earpiece. A variety of businesses have created better ones and I wouldn’t propose this one if President Obama asks your organization to defend him on his next family skiing trip, but for most intents and purposes, the GP300 earpiece gets the job done.
In our next episode, we’ll be taking a look at the GP340 earpiece, but for more information on the full range of GP300 earpieces visit www.earpieceonline.co.uk
