So i found this short article on the internet and i understand that just posting it as the whole piece is not the right thing, I got permission from the original author and read up the way to curate posts, so this is it…….i thought this was fascinating as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working in the business.
The best types are the 2-pin connector and the multi-pin connector. The two pin model features two connector pins and the multi-pin model features multiple pins. Any difference in performance is a matter of customer discretion.
The 2-pin connector’s earpiece features an in-line PTT (push-to-talk) button and a built-in microphone. It also has a surveillance audio tube and comes complete with a clothing clip. This Kenwood earpiece is available for just over £22 (including shipping and handling fees).
The multi-pin connected earpiece is a different type of connector entirely. However, the earpiece is the same, as it also features an in-line PTT button, a built-in microphone, surveillance tube and clothing clip. The cost is the same as the 2-pin version.
Both types of Kenwood earpiece can be upgraded by paying extra money and can include features like a ‘swivel’ earloop, for increased ease of use and comfort, a noise-reduction feature and a steel clothing clip (replacing the plastic version).
The types of connectors compatible with Kenwood two-way radios are limited when compared with some other manufacturers, but Kenwood know when to specialize in a certain area, because sometimes less is more.
Kenwood radios may only connect via two types of connector, but their equipment is among the best in the world. A Kenwood radio customer does not have to spend undue time searching his/her choices and researching them before purchase, provided the connector/earpiece falls into one of the two aforementioned categories, then the equipment will work fine.
Kenwood have been producing quality products since 1946 and they have a long history of trust, customer loyalty and cutting edge equipment. Because of this, Kenwood earpieces are well known and usually sell well on the international market.
