Soundwaves Cell Phone Earpiece w/mic
2/4/05 - At this year's SHOT show, I was at the TCI booth (Tactical Command Industries, Inc.), and saw Don Medine standing alone so i started to talk to him. He started talking and I realized that he was in the middle of a telephone conversation. When I took a closer look, instead of the normal earpiece cell phones usually come with, I saw that he was using a more 'professional' looking one - similar to the higher-end tactical earpieces. I wasn't aware they made versions to fit cell phones so I stuck around until he was done to see what the deal was. My current foam covered earpiece that came with my cell phone work decently, but it's not very secure and often falls out of my ear when I turn my head. I've tried some Jabra earpieces but those weren't any better either.
The Soundwaves cell phone earpiece (go to the TCI website and search for "555-000") has a universal 2.5mm pin to fit most cell phones. It comes with small, medium and large semi-custom earmolds, which I find much more secure and comfortable than the cheap foam ones. The short, clear, curved acoustical tube goes over the ear and is connected to a coiled wire covered by transparent tubing. The microphone and clip is next, then a straight length of black wire which turns into a coiled section, ending in the plug. It can be worn around the back of the neck or straight down from the ear, either concealed inside the collar or outside. It's long an flexible enough
The sound quality is excellent, and the coiled tube ensures that it doesn't snag, and allow complete movement of the head. I like it because it works well, not because it looks cool (although I think it does). In my opinion, a great improvement over my old earpiece.

Worn with coil around the back of the neck (this can be tucked inside the collar)

In the past, I've used Motorola T289 FRS radios, but wasn't very
satisfied with them. The transmission and reception wasn't very clear,
and they had a proprietary single pin accessory interface, for which
there were very few aftermarket accessories. The Motorola earbud with
inline PTT sucked, as you had to push the tiny PTT button (located on
the mic) while holding the mic right up to your face. I really wanted
something with remote PTT, and it wasn't available for this model of
