As someone who has worked in public safety, I've had the opportunity to use many different radios and microphones. I didn't expect this microphone to be on the same level as a product by Motorola. After all, I am using it with a $40 radio. First and foremost, it fits the Baofeng UV-5R and allows you to talk and listen to the radio. It's worth mentioning that microphone pictured is not what I received. It was similar and it was Baofeng brand, but not the one Amazon shows. I've uploaded a few of my own photos.

My complaints? It's cheap plastic. It feels like it would break pretty easily. So don't drop it. That wouldn't be too much of a risk, except that the clip on the back is pretty bad. It's very loose, swivels way too easily and won't really stay clipped if you move around too much. So no running, jogging, stair climbing, etc. Also, it sounds very tinny. Audio going out and coming in is pretty bad quality compared to most other mics. I've had mics for half this cost that out performed it by a long shot. But the bottom line is that it works and it gets the job done.

Update - August 2013: This product was closer to $29 when I purchased it and made the review. At the time of this update the price is about $9. At the current price, I would look past any flaws in the product. But this rating reflects the price that I paid.

Bought this to keep the radio in my pocket and still hear the FM radio. If you use this with a UV-5R in your pocket, don't forget to disable Menu #7. Any signal on the other band will make that the transmit band, and you don't want to be that guy!

Received speaker/mic today and appears to work. Under "Product Reference" it states "Volume control switch , much more convenient to adjust the volume". There is NO volume control switch on this product.

I purchased this to use with my pair of UV-5R HTs. After someone told me in a signal report that my audio was low and to perhaps turn up my mic gain (the Baofeng radios do not have a mic gain setting) I decided to investigate. Indeed, when I talk through this mic the audio is very low/quiet but if I unplug and talk into the built-in mic on the handheld my audio sounds normal. I tried talking directly into the mic (about 1" away), talking LOUDLY into the mic and talking across the mic to no avail. It's possible I received one with a defective microphone.

I also did the trick of shaving some of the plastic/rubber off the connector so that it will fit better into the jacks on the radio. The receive audio is fine and I will still hang onto this accessory because I like clipping it to my shirt while I am monitoring or listening to regular FM broadcast radio. But I know that if I want to have any kind of extended QSO with another amateur I need to disconnect the mic so that the other party can hear me without having to turn their radio up.

For the price (which you just can't beat) it seems solidly built, and aside from the issue I noted above I like the product.

looks like good quality, sounds very good, match's the radio just fine, cord is long enough, fits tight to case.

I am a ski patroller and ski in all sorts of nasty conditions. I've used this in the rain at 40 degrees and the cold of -10 degrees. The mic works well in both and continues to work well.

The only thing that could be better but you may not want it to be better is that you have to speak directly into the mic. It does not pick up sound well unless the sound is directed straight at the mic. This is probably a good thing given being on a hill in windy conditions could make the message not come through clearly if it was picking up a bunch of wind noise, but still I would prefer the mic be more omni-directional.

SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR QUALITY ITEM INSTEAD! Upon arrival of item I attached to my radio and nothing worked. No speaker, no mic. After disassembling it, I found several wires not even connected inside. Speaker flopping around and smashed wires from being pinched upon assembly. On of the wires were it was attempted to be attached to the board appears to have damaged to board and is barely secured. Rather than do the whole return headache, I suppose I will attach the wires and secure the speaker myself. But my expectations of it even being worth my time are slim to none.

This speaker-mic ended up being exactly what I expected. I'm happy with it. I like the headset port at the bottom of the speakermic, I didn't realize it had that port before I bought it, and it's handy.

After reading several reviews, I wasn't sure if these would be good or bad. However, they arrived and I immediately plugged them into my two radios and turned on the radios. They work very well. The plugs fit into the radio and the transmit and receive is very good. The sound quality from the hand held unit is good also. They will certainly make it much easier to operate the radios while doing other things. We tried them out and the microphone seems to pickup voices well and the speaker does a good job of broadcasting the received sound. The length of the coiled cord is just right and the added bonus of having a clip on the back of the handset is a bonus. I also like the fact that there is an earphone plug on the bottom of the handheld speaker. These microphone, speaker combinations will add to the versatility of the radios. A great purchase as long as they work well in the future.
I would definitely recommend them to anyone else. My radios are the 888s units. They fit the radio perfectly with no loose connections or problems. I would purchase them again if needed.

Very poor transmit modulation. Not worth the money. A Kenwood K-17 or KMC-21 can be found for nearly the same price and don't have this problem.

Anyone giving this item more than 1 star doesn't know how they sound on the receive end.
