  • Working Outside In Yard

Comments:

I ordered these Walkie Talkies so my husband and I can communicate to each other when we are in different areas of the house and/or when he is outside working in the garden and needs to reach me inside the house. Also, when my husband is downstairs and I'm upstairs, we can talk without "yelling" at each other. This is the best idea for our family and I'm so glad I found this model. Being waterproof is a plus.

CONS

  • My Headset Needed A Mod

BEST USES

  • Kiting On The Beach

Comments:

Ilike these radios. I like the ability to use 1.5v. batteries in a pinch. I like the vox controlled headset. It takes practice to not clip the first spoken word. Easily mastered. I will use the headset without the earclip. I hang the earbud in my ear and bandaid the mouthpiece to my cheek for trouble free headset use. My wife can use the headset as it was shipped. On both headsets I used zip ties to create a small loop of the cord that can slip when pulled, thus providing strain relief for the headsets.

Excellent radios, Great Value

 
5.0

PROS

  • Clear Signal
  • Rugged
  • Great For A Baby Monitor
  • Easy To Use
  • Good Audio
  • Lightweight

CONS

BEST USES

  • Hiking
  • Baby Monitor
  • Camping
  • Families

Comments:

We bought these radios primarily for baby monitors and I couldn't be happier with my investment. The vox feature works great, and even better with the included headset. I have tried literally all baby monitors and they barely work around the house. We needed something that goes around our farmyard and they work perfectly!!! Units are easy to use and program, and settings are saved, even if you remove the batteries - a huge bonus. My wife just needs to turn unit on and its ready to go, and battery life is very reasonable. Range is very good and reception is crystal clear. Great value for the money. I am writing this review for others, because I could not find any reviewers that use these radios for baby monitors.

CONS

BEST USES

  • Families
  • Emergencies

Comments:

I initially purchased four radios to assist in maintaining personal contact with my team members. I'm head of Security Operations at my Church and found these radios meets my needs and desires to stay in contact. I've since purchased ten more and upon their arrival, I discovered one didn't operate at all. I contacted the seller and they agreed to replace it without delay. While using the radio, I also discovered if one of my team members uses the emergency SOS button, it's only useful to the operator and no one else would know an emergency is in progress unless they are close enough to hear the audible tone. I would like to see SOS transmitted to other radios so that we all would receive the alert with the radio ID number flashing. Other than that, this is a great product and I look forward to buying more as my responsibilities and personnel grow.

Great radio, terrible battery quality

PROS

  • Rugged
  • Easy To Use

CONS

  • Drains Battery

BEST USES

Comments:

I purchased 10 of these radios for my shop staff. We are a small assmebly shop, so extensive range was not needed. I just needed reliable rugged radios and these have fit that bill. My only real complaint is the batteries. Out of the 10 radios, we have already replaced 5 of the batteries. I'm not sure if this was caused by the radios sitting on the shelf for an extended period of time before we purchased them, or just poor battery quality on the behalf of Midland. A superficial complaint is in reference to the call button. The call button needs to be either placed somewhere else on the radio or simply disabled when the radio is locked. Being that it is so easy to accidently hit the call button when the radio is attached to your belt, it has really become annoying. The call ringer goes off several times an hour.

Comments:

I ordered the radios on a Monday, and got them on a Wednesday. They work great. Only minor problem, in instrutions, it says to wait till battery indicater on radio starts losing bars before you recharge the radio. But on third morning, left house with three bars on battery, and within 45 minutes battery was dead.

These Radios Are Great!

  • Good Audio

CONS

BEST USES

  • Families

Comments:

First off, these Midlands come as a complete kit, which is great. You get a charger, belt clips, headsets, all of that included. We live in a rural area, and my girls love to go hiking in the woods. This way, I can keep tabs on them. These are great at malls when everybody splits up, great at the beach and boardwalk, great at the lake when we're out on jetskis. The uses for these are only limited by your imagination.
