Last time, we checked out an earpiece expressly designed to work with the Motorola multi pin 2 way radio series. This time, we will be looking at the Motorola cp040 earpiece, an affordable and adaptable little doohickey that is amazingly thrilling, but also does little to damage one’s deposit account.
The CP040 earpiece is a lot like the Motorola gp300 earpiece. It is little, smart and inexpensive, however it also is pretty good value for money. EarpieceOnline lists this earpiece for about £11.50, but it’s a pretty good deal for the cost.
We’ll be candid, everything is pretty essential on this model, but the device performs its operation well and definitely won’t let anybody down.
The noise quality of the Motorola cp040 earpiece is excellent indeed and the PTT ‘push to talk’ utility is well-located and simple to use. As usual, the Motorola cp040 earpiece has a sprung clothing clip that attaches simply to most items of gear (you might find it a challenge if you’re planning on using it whilst dressed as a giant Sumo wrestler and competing on ‘Takeshi’s Castle’, but besides that…).
As with the gp300 series, because it only features a 2-pin plug, an adaptor block will be necessary for use with the GP320 and GP340 series of 2 way radios.
The ergonomic D-shaped earpiece itself is comfortable to wear and generally discreet. It can be easily used in either the left or right ear, depending on one’s own preference. The Motorola cp040 earpiece fits most ear dimensions, so unless you happen to be Prince Charles or Martin Clunes (Editor’s Note: or my Uncle Alan), you shouldn’t have too many comfort issues, if any.
There’s no Kevlar cable on this one, however but it positively isn’t the best model around. Still, this isn’t to say the Cp040 2-pin is really a inferior earpiece, not at all. It just isn’t the finest.
In general, the Motorola cp040 earpiece is practical, instead of flamboyant. It does its job with no frills (but additionally no temper tantrums). This is really a excellent, reliable product from a company that excels at producing such products. It also provides enormous value for money, too.
