What would you do if i stated I had found a radio accessory short article that isnít only interesting but informative also? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the educational, excellent and fascinating editorial
Last time we mentioned that James Bond might use the earpiece weíre about to describe if he were helping a mate to guard a nightclub. We realize that itís a bizarre situation to find yourself in, but its probably happened a couple of times in some early Ian Fleming drafts…(Editorís Note: Wow. Thatís quite a tangent. Well done).
The DP3400 earpiece looks good, works well and doesnít cost a lot of money. You really canít fault it on its merits.
The DP3400 earpiece features an HQ PTT earpiece that provides incredible clarity and depth of sound. Any instruction, even if a laryngitis-stricken Muttley delivers it to you from a library somewhere, will be clear, clean and crisp to the ear.
But thatís not all, not by a long shot. The transparent tube is almost invisible, designed specifically for secrecy and discretion; it even comes with an extra earbud.
It even has (and we swear weíre not making this up) a hidden micro-speaker located at the base of the centre of the PTT switch.
Earpieceonline lists this product at £27.50, but that strikes us a genuine bargain. This earpiece is covert, brilliantly made and extremely high quality. It is also durable and hard wearing. Of most of the devices we have looked at to date, this DP3400 earpiece is unquestionably the coolest looking. By way of performance, it’s also the best one we have seen so far.
The DP3400 earpiece is compatible with LOADS of Motorola (and Motorola TRBO radios) including (but by no means limited to): DP, DGP, XPR and XiR Series. XiR-P8200, XiR-P8208, XiR-P8260, XiR-P8268, XPR6300, XPR6350, XPR6500, XPR6550, DGP-4150, DGPTM 4150+, DGPTM 6150, DGPTM 6150+, DP-3400, DP-3401, DP-3600 and DP-3601.
Overall, this is a fine device. The DP3400 is an excellent earpiece, available at a pretty competitive price, with a cool, functional design and a lot going for it. No, this isnít the same model that the CIA use when guarding Mr. Obama, but it isnít a hundred million miles removed, either. This earpiece will do a good job, whilst at the same time not breaking the bank.
Next episode, we will bid you a tearful goodbye as we embark on the last in our series of two-way radio earpieces. Weíll be looking at the most expensive item on this list and making some more dumb jokes, stick around.
