As a lot of you would know there are many bone conducting earphones out on the market, when I needed to buy one I commonly got it from earpieceonline, but lately they’ve stopped shipping them, when I asked as to why this was they told me they discontinued their variety until the brand new units arrive.
I received an email this week, or even it was through facebook, they’re all merging as one as of late! And I without delay sent an email to ask for one to try, and low and behold one arrived with the post this morning. It is one of an innovative generation of bone conductors which are lighter and better than the earlier ones. Now when I’ve had the earlier variations I continually found that they fell out my ear if I moved my head a lot, these new bone conductors have a clip that fits flawlessly over the ear, making it easier to wear, and far more secure.
It definitely feels lighter, compared to the other ones, the ptt button as I am consistently told to call it, is far lighter as well, and still has the lapel to clip it to your belt, which I find extremely practical. Not shown within the picture is the extended PTT (there you go boss!!!!) which is separate and can continue down your arm, leg, snake, anything you want because it is absolutely long enough.
I in general use the Motorola connector and I always have, I have been informed that the kenwood connector version and the icom connector versions are exactly the same, but the first time these are available using a GP340, DP3400 and a few others, which for me is perfect because we are just about to progress into the digital revolution and get some Motorola dp3400 2 way radios.
All in all this is a superb earpiece, and many thanks to the guys at earpieceonline for sending one for me to check, you could find them at www.earpieceonline.co.uk
