Last time, we looked at an earpiece exclusively created to work on the Gp 340 two way radio series. Now, we will be checking out the Cp040 2-pin earpiece, an affordable and adaptable little doohickey that’s amazingly exciting, but additionally does little to break your deposit account.
The CP040 earpiece is a lot like the Motorola gp300 earpiece. It’s tiny, smart and cheap, however it also represents quite good value for money. EarpieceOnline lists this earpiece for about £11.50, however it’s a pretty good deal for the price.
We’ll be direct, everything is pretty essential on that model, but the earpiece performs its operation well and certainly will not let anybody down.
The sound quality of this CP040 earpiece is superb indeed and also the PTT ‘push to talk’ utility is convenient and easy to use. As usual, the Motorola cp040 earpiece includes a sprung lapel clip that attaches easily to nearly all items of clothing (you will find it a challenge if you’re planning on using it while dressed as a giant Sumo wrestler and competing on ‘Takeshi’s Castle’, but besides that…).
As with the 300 series, because it only includes a two-pin plug, an adaptor block might be essential to be used with the GP320 and GP340 series of two way radios.
The ergonomic D-shaped earpiece alone is comfortable to wear and typically inconspicuous. It can be effortlessly used in either the left or right ear, depending on the user’s own preference. The Motorola cp040 earpiece fits nearly all ear sizes, so if you happen to be Prince Charles or Martin Clunes (Editor’s Note: or my Uncle Dave), you shouldn’t have too many comfort issues, if any.
There’s no Kevlar cable on this one, however and it definitely isn’t the best model around. Still, this isn’t to state that the Cp040 2-pin is really a inferior earpiece, not at all. It just is not the best.
In general, the Motorola cp040 earpiece is functional, instead of flamboyant. It does its job with no frills (but also no temper tantrums). This is really a excellent, solid product from the company that excels at making such earpieces. It also offers great value for money, too.
