    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Mic Works as expected
    - TX/RX is great with the Mic
    - Strong sounds
    - Cheaper than Retail
    - Strong PTT button detents.
    - LED works for TX.

    Cons:

    - The clip behind the microphone can be easily broken off. (Easily fixed, < 5 minutes)
    - The cord coming off the connector looks like it is stressed and overtime it can possibly fray the insulator.

    OtherThoughts:

    This mic is great for Ham Radio whose connector is similar to the Wouxun, Baofeng or Kenwood HT type of connector. The mic was smaller than expected. LED works in the front for TX. The microphone PTT button detents are sharp and crisp, no slop in the PTT button.

    Bottomline:

    Overall, great mic. Purchase one for daily use, and maybe one more to keep in the vehicle. No qualms about it, and will purchase more in the future if needed.
