Here's a single action throat microphone headset that's perfect for the paintball/airgun afficionado. Never let them hear you coming.
Throat microphones pick up sound directly through vibration sensors against your neck, and transmit via an acoustic sound tube. It's an ideal setup for loud environments with lots of background noise, and will also pick up whispers, for communicating quietly at a distance (this makes it ideal for you paintball buffs).
Inline VOX-PTT Switch
Don't bother reaching for your radio, an inline PTT (Push-to-Transmit) switch lets you quickly activate communication, with a swivel clip to attach to your clothing/etc.
Get crystal-clear sound, even with quiet transmissions, thanks to an in-ear speaker.
These headsets will work with all Midland GMRS two-way radios. Here's the list:
G-225, G-226, G-227, G-300, G-300M, GXT250, GXT255, GXT300, GXT325, GXT400, GXT444, GXT450, GXT500, GXT550, GXT555, GXT565, GXT600, GXT635, GXT650, GXT656, GXT661, GXT700, GXT710, GXT735, GXT750, GXT771, GXT756, GXT757, GXT800, GXT808, GXT850, GXT881, GXT720, GXT775, GXT900, GXT950, GXT740, GXT785, GXT1000, GXT1050, LXT210, LXT216, LXT310, LXT410, LXT300, LXT303, LXT305, LXT315, LXT320, LXT350, LXT420, LXT435, LXT276, LXT330, LXT335, LXT376, LXT318, LXT319, LXT440, LXT322, LXT323, LXT324, LXT80, LXT110, LXT340, LXT345, LXT460, LXT112, LXT360, LXT365, LXT480

Action Throat Mic Headset, Documentation
Top Customer Reviews
The pipes on my bike are "loud", but these allow me to talk normally. Because it picks up your voice on the throat, it doesn't pick up any background noise (like the wind at 70mph, or the pipes). It has a PTT (push to talk) and VOX (voice operated transmit) selector switch, but I tend to use the PTT more. I'm still trying to adjust the VOX setting to work well, but that is more a radio issue, and not a throat mic/headset issue. The earpiece fits securely in the ear, is comfortable, and can be adjusted for left or right ear use. It's also compact enough to fit inside any helmet. I've tried it with a 1/2 helmet, regular helmet, full face helmet, and those fancy modular helmets.
The only real drawback for me is the way it fits a bit snug on my throat. I have to adjust it slightly to keep it off the arteries, (trust me, you WILL feel it). I have a 16 1/2 inch neck, and this is snug on me. However, it fits my wife without any problems. Of course her neck is smaller, but she won't let me measure it.
Definitely worth it!
When it is positioned correctly on my throat, the transmission is fine. After running around, it slips around and my teammates complain that that cant hear me well (like I'm mumbling). The earpiece only stays put if inserted into the ear canal. The problem is that it then acts as an earplug and I cannot hear (non radio) sounds out of that ear which is important for detecting enemy movement.
- Affordable (compared to $200 throat mikes)
- Works well if positioned correctly
- Others think throat mikes are cool
- Easily slips out of position
- Acts as an earplug in one ear (blocking natural sounds)
Not for Airsoft or Paintball. Go with the TH1, it's a lot more practical.
There is one huge recommendation that I cannot stress enough. When you get your mic, pull the little ear bud off and throw it as far as you can. And replace that tip with one of these Shure headphone soft rubber noise isolating tips. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NDHIKY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
If you followed my recommendation this is the rating I will give this mic.
-- Incoming 10/10 Thanks to the noise isolating earpiece, everything is heard crystal clear, even in a very loud environment.
-- Outgoing 8/10 The only reason, is because I have to repeat myself. This is usually caused by the throat mic slipping around my neck after some drunkard wants to talk to the staff, but sometimes its solely the mic's fault.
Durability 12/10 Yes you got that right. The reason for such a high rating is because the mic that I use every night has been washed and dried (Yes, in an actual washer and dryer) twice! What can I say, you get tired at 4 AM and forget you just left your mic in your pocket.
I will buy another if this mic actually breaks...
