Customer Reviews

The ear bud does not stay in your ear very well.
Jeff Roozen
When you are in a quiet room you can make out what people are saying, Hey two way radios aren't crystal clear.
Livingstonetech
I have two types - Motorola XTN series and MaxOne by Motorola -- will not plug into radios.

Excellent Motorola quality and when paired with the TA280's excellent volume levels (plus control), it allows you to use it even in crowded, noisy environments. The ease of use and its inconspicuousness make it an invaluable addition to the Talk Abouts, but there is room for improvement. My biggest complaint is that the TA280/289 don't allow for the alert tone (call tones / menu tones / etc.) volumes to be regulated. This makes for some very uncomfortably loud noise spikes with that earbud only an inch or so from your eardrum. The TA280/289 DO allow the alert tones to be disabled, but that makes it a little more difficult to operate (especially when you have them tucked away under your outer clothing). My only other complaint was in the design of the PTT/MIC housing. I would've preferred something a little easier to use with gloves on (the PTT button is 1/2" from the MIC and pressing it with gloves on covers the MIC....). In closing, the alert tone volume issue is a TA280/289 one, not this units and I'd buy this again if I were to lose this one, but I sure wish they'd improve on it.

I ski (or board) all day with this earbud and a 280SLK on a NiMH battery. I have used TalkAbouts while skiing for a few years - but just got the 280 and the earbud, and it makes a WORLD of difference! The 280's lock feature lets me pack it down under layers. The earbud and wires stay well under layers (hat, shirt, etc) as well. Only the mic sticks out from the side, which I can click to talk at any time. It has been over a foot under the snow with my head when I blow a 360 - and still works perfectly. This earbud is a *must* for skiiers (or boarders! I do both.)

I have only one complaint about this earbud/mic unit - the cord is too short. Otherwise, the sound quality is good and the built-in mic with PTT works fine. A 2.5mm extension cord from radio shack (meant for phone headsets, #43-2003) alleviates the cord problem, however. The earbud cushion is comfortable. To be discreet, this is an excellent accessory for your Motorola FRS radio.

This product does exactly what its supposed to do. I don't understand people who expected this product to support VOX. It does not say anything about VOX in product description. I personally don't like VOX, because I don't want my children to hear what I'm saying when I fall down while skiing :-).
Anyway the product is OK. The only problem for me is a very short wire, that's why I gave it 4 stars.

I tried the ear bud while skiing recently and it work excellently, it is far more comfortable than i expected having read other reviews. The PTT mic is easy to use when clipped to the top of the collar of ski jackets although if it becomes unclipped it is difficult to clip back on while wearing ski gloves. A very good purchase.

These come in handy when communicating is important but attracting attention isn't. The earbud keeps conversations private. The mic is easy to use with the "push-to-talk" button located on the front and a sure-click operation. The mic delivered clear sound to the other person - but had a "hollow" characteristic. Locate the mic high on your collar for best sound. We also found they work best with jacket or shirt with a collar for the mic. It is a little awkward clipping it to just a t-shirt. Overall we were pleased with the items and use them often.

I (like many others) use the radios when riding my snowboard.
The sound quality can't be faulted, both sending and receiving are crystal clear (and now private). Wearing it all day you can now hear when people are paging you, not just when standing in line.
Now the bad; the build quality should be questioned, the speaker inside the earbod rattles around in mine, and the "PTT" button is difficult to press when wearing gloves. The earbud's a little big for my ear, and isn't as comfortable as it could be (although it fits under my helmet fine).
The other problem I've had with this is that it pops out of the headphone jack on the radio with annoying regularity. I've solved this with duct tape, which isn't pretty but it is functional....

The product itself is very nice and easy to use. I use it for skiing and find it very convinient except VOX. The earbud is not voice activated even though my two way radios support VOX, so every time you want to talk, you have to push the button on the microphone what is really unconvinient.
