Product Description

Acoustic Throat Mic for GMRS Radios with PTT/VOX Compartment

Amazon.com

Here's a single action throat microphone headset that's perfect for the paintball/airgun afficionado. Never let them hear you coming.

Throat Mic

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.

In-Ear Speaker

Get crystal-clear sound, even with quiet transmissions, thanks to an in-ear speaker.

Compatibility

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

I bought these so my wife and I could talk to each other while riding our motorcycles. They're not military good, but these were perfect for our needs! I would buy these again.

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!

This is a nice headset. The sound is a little difficult to hear sometimes but if you adjust your volume down it seems to help a little. I do love the fact that the earpiece stays in place, even after running, rolling, dodging, and weaving, as well as the neck mic. I would recommend this for paintball players if you are one. The only down side... since the sound is sometimes difficult, you will almost never hear someone whispering or talking in a low voice no matter where your volume is. The up side... the button on the wire is a nice size so it's easy to find with gloves and vox seems to work pretty well when you get the setting right.

I bought these for airsoft / paintball. If I had seen it in a store first, I may not have bought it as it looks and feels cheap. That said, it seems pretty rugged in practice.

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.

Pros
- Affordable (compared to $200 throat mikes)
- Works well if positioned correctly
- Others think throat mikes are cool

Cons
- Easily slips out of position
- Acts as an earplug in one ear (blocking natural sounds)

Recommended?
Not for Airsoft or Paintball. Go with the TH1, it's a lot more practical.

I bought these for my wife and I so we could communicate back & forth across our Midland radios while driving separate vehicles. The throat mic assembly is very small (I have a 21" neck & no way to adjust these so the mic parts actually are on the side of my neck). My wife's neck is smaller, but they also only end up on the side of her neck. When trying to use the mics, they are very muffled and we could not understand each other (sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher). When she unplugged these & spoke directly into the radio, I heard her crisp & clear so the ear peace works well, but it kept falling out of my ear. These might work great for kids with small necks, but for the purpose we bought these to use, they failed miserably. Oh, when I tried setting it on vox, at home in a quiet house, it was constantly in transmit so my wife could not respond so had to use the push to talk. Maybe if Midland had bigger loop for the throat might where they mics actually end up near the front of my throat, they might work great. As is, it didn't.

I am working my way through college working security for a 3 floor college town bar. On any given Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday night we will have about 4-5 thousand people that 24 guys have to watch. Clear and fast communication is very important in my work place, especially when alcohol gets involved. I chose this mic over the competition for one reason: ease of communication.

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.

Communication 9/10
-- 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...
