It works, what else could you ask for? – 3.5mm+2.5mm Clip-on Microphone for Kenwood Walkie Talkies (1.5-Meter Cable) Reviews

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

Pros:
Small, light weight. Adjustable clip. 2.5 mm jack for an ear piece.
Cons:
Very loud "click" when you engage the PTT. I bought this for playing paintball, and now when I use it people will hear me, I have another box mic that is bigger than this but functions exactly the same and the switch is silent.
Other:
The cord is very good. You can never seem to stretch it, which is good, but also annoying as it tends to tug on my radio clipped on my belt. Sometimes It has pulled it off. Maybe I just have a long torso, I don't know. but I can't decide whether this is good or bad, maybe time will tell and the cord will be worked in.
Bottomline:
Would be fine for recreational or commercial use. But military or wargame type of use (paintball or airsoft) might not be so welcome if stealth is an issue, due to the loud switch.
