This could easily be mistaken for a music earbud and makes this a great system for undercover work. The microphone can be activated by either the remote push-to-talk switch or the main button on the radio itself.
The Two-Wire Patrol Kit's sound quality is good, the earpiece is comfortable, and I'd recommend this to anyone looking for light, high-quality comms at a great price.
As tactical situations demand the most out of a team, it's important to find gear that will help get the job done, ensuring clear communication, comfort, and resilience.
The evolution of tactical headsets has been a significant one. Within the past couple of years alone, we've seen great improvements in technology that affect some of the most important functions of a good unit: strong sound quality, comfort, and resilience.
The Columbine High School massacre underscored what can happen when tactical teams cannot communicate. Fast-forward 13 years, and such incompatibility still exists for many tactical teams, particularly those in mid-size to small departments.
Advanced communications systems for tac teams now include throat mics, nearly invisible wireless earpieces, and everything in between.
The use of headsets is prevalent in all law enforcement operations. And whether the needs are tactical or administrative, cops all want the same things from a headset: clear communications, comfort, and durability.
