Like so many, we tried to save money by buying standard walkie talkie's with some cheap headsets with boom mics, but of course they are about useless. We need to communicate during high sound levels.
Does anyone have experience with eartec headsets? Since they use both 3.5 and 2.5mm headsets, and the website states that it is compatible with most standard radios, is there any reason why these won't work with my walkie talkies?
A couple other questions: Comparing the slimline and proline, it looks like there are a couple different types of mics. The slimline double and proline single uses a mic that is side address style, facing the mouth, whereas the slimline single and proline double use a mic that appears to be more end address style. I would prefer the proline double, but I would assume the side address style mic would pick up voices over loud background noise better. Any tips here?
I'm looking at Eartec's ComStar wireless system (the ones with the body packs integrated right into the headsets), and they seem to fit everything I'd need. They advertise a max distance of about 1200 ft from base station to headset, and we'd only use them max 150 ft.
I had a wired Telex system planned before, but if the Eartec's perform decently at even an 1/8th of what they advertise, I can get more users and wireless for less than a simple wired Telex system (which I'd probably have to pull cable for).
Here's the ComStar system: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._WIRELESS.html
Has anyone ever used one of the full systems from Eartec?
