Review: I normally play Woodsball with a group of 10 or more friends, so we decided to get a little more organized and purchase some throat mics. So we all pitched in and bought 11 of the FireFox commando edition throat mics ($49 /each).

When they first arrived we realized what a mistake we made in buying them cuz the quality of these throat mics were not very good. 2 of them where broken in the package and almost all of them were not workin properly. At first we were using some Cobra radios and then realized that they are only compatible with SOME Motorola walkies. So, we bought Motorola radios and even then they still were very hard to work with.

You could barely make out what the other person was saying no matter how many adjustments we made, not to mention the delay when using the PTT button tryin to communicate with each other.

The next day we took them out on the field and during the game the throat mics would not stay in place. We were constantly adjusting our mics and could barely understand one another. Our first game was attack and defend and we were defending a small base so as you can imagine there was not too much running around....when that 1 game was over my throat mic fell apart.
Conclusion: This may sound harsh to some of you but my final recomendation is to NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! I understand that every once in a while you can buy a defective product... but when you buy 11 of them and none of them seem to work properly it's a little more than just coincidence.
If your still looking for sum mics, me and my friends found some throat mics that are awesome and they cost just as much as the firefox mics just email me if you want it.
Later guys!

The post says the items are only compatible with Motorola handsets. This isn't true. Check out the manufacturers web page.

There is a large amount of compatible radios, and a even wider array of input jack adapters to be used with radio handsets that use a different input jack system.

This review is completely inaccurate. Also, as this user has not mentioned the brand name of these "other throat mics" that they found, nor have they even provided a place to buy them (other than through contacting them via e-Mail). I'm not entirely convinced that this user was speaking out of objectivity.

While this reviewers information apparently was wrong about the radio compatibility that does not take away from they poor experience the user had with this equipment.
