Previously, we looked at an earpiece purposely created to use on the Motorola multi pin two way radio ranges. This time, we will be checking out the Cp040 2-pin earpiece, an affordable and adaptable little doohickey that is amazingly exciting, but additionally does very little to damage your deposit account.
The Cp040 2-pin earpiece is a lot like the Motorola gp300 earpiece. It is small, smart and cheap, however it also represents pretty good value for money. EarpieceOnline lists this earpiece for about £11.50, but it’s a reasonably good buy for the price.
We’ll be direct, everything is pretty essential on that model, however the device performs its function well and certainly won’t let anybody down.
The noise quality of this CP040 earpiece is very good indeed and also the PTT ‘push to talk’ utility is well-located and simple to use. As usual, the Motorola cp040 earpiece features a sprung clothing clip that attaches easily to most items of outfits (you may find it a problem if you’re planning on using it while dressed as a giant Sumo combatant and competing on ‘Takeshi’s Castle’, but besides that…).
As on the motorola gp300 series, as it only includes a 2-pin plug, an adaptor block will be necessary to be used with the Motorola gp320 and Motorola gp340 series of radios.
The ergonomic D-shaped earpiece alone is comfortable to wear and typically discreet. It can be easily utilised in either the left or right ear, depending on your own liking. The Motorola cp040 earpiece fits most ear dimensions, so if you happen to be Prince Charles or Martin Clunes (Editor’s Note: or my Uncle Alan), you should not have many comfort problems, if any.
There’s no Kevlar cable on this one, yet but it positively isn’t the best model around. However, this is not to put that the CP040 is a substandard earpiece, not at all. It just is not the greatest.
In general, the Cp040 2-pin earpiece is functional, rather than flamboyant. It does its job with no frills (but additionally no temper tantrums). This is a fine, dependable product from a business that excels at making such earpieces. It also provides great value for money, too.
