Almost all walkie-talkie radios have a socket on them, into which you can plug an earpiece (or usually, a combined earpiece/microphone).
Every brand and model of walkie-talkie radio that we sell and hire has an earpiece socket.
Different makes of walkie-talkie radio have different audio connector sockets, so it is important to make sure you choose the correct earpiece to work with your walkie-talkie.
We sell several different styles of earpiece / microphones for our range of walkie-talkie radios, and also earpieces for most major brands of walkie-talkies, including Motorola, Kenwood, Hytera, Icom, Baofeng, Cobra, BT, Binatone and many others.
There is the D-ring earpiece/microphone, two styles of semi-covert "transparent curly tube" earpiece microphone, and the "earbud" earpiece.
All of our rental walkie talkie radios can be hired with two different types of earpiece/microphone - the D-type earpiece and the semi-covert earpiece.
The most obvious reason to use an earpiece with a walkie-talkie is to ensure that radio messages can be heard clearly, especially in a noisy environment.
Another reason to use an earpiece is confidentiality: without an earpiece fitted, radio messages come out of the walkie-talkie's loudspeaker and so can be heard by anyone standing nearby.
In many situations this is not a good thing, especially in public events and when the walkie-talkies are being used in a security role. You do not necessarily want the general public to be bale to hear radio messages being sent between staff. Using earpieces with walkie-talkies achieves confidentiality.
Not sure where to start?
No matter what kind of event you are organising, we have walkie-talkie radios to suit your needs for short and long term hire.
We have megaphones / loudhailers / bullhorns for hire.
For many events attended by the general public, a megaphone is a useful tool to address and control the crowds. Get your message across!
