Last time we talked about that James Bond may use the earpiece we’re just about to describe if he were helping a mate to protect a nightspot. We understand that it is a strange state of affairs to find yourself in, but it’s probably happened a couple of times in some early Ian Fleming drafts…(Editor’s Note: Wow. That’s quite a tangent. Well done).
The Dp 3400 earpiece looks excellent, works well and does not cost a lot of money. You really cannot criticize it on its merits.
The Motorola dp3400 earpiece features an HQ PTT that has incredible clarity and depth of sound. Any instruction, even if a laryngitis-stricken Muttley offers it to you from the library somewhere, might be clear, clean and crisp to the ear.
But that is not all, not by a long shot. The clear tube is almost concealed, made specifically for concealment and discretion; it even is included with an extra earbud.
It even has (and we swear we’re not making this up) a hidden micro-speaker located at the bottom of the centre of that PTT switch.
Earpieceonline lists this earpiece at £27.50, but that strikes us a veritable bargain. This earpiece is covert, brilliantly designed and very high quality. It is also robust and hard wearing. Of all the devices we have looked at so far, the Dp 3400 earpiece is certainly the coolest looking. When it comes to performance, it is also the best one we’ve considered so far.
The Dp 3400 earpiece is compatible with LOADS of Motorola (and Motorola TRBO radios) including (but not at all limited to): DP, DGP, XPR and XiR Series. XiR-P8200, XiR-P8208, XiR-P8260, XiR-P8268, XPR6300, XPR6350, XPR6500, XPR6550, DGP-4150, DGPTM 4150+, DGPTM 6150, DGPTM 6150+, DP-3400, DP-3401, DP-3600 and DP-3601 and the MTP850s.
Overall, this is really a fine device. The Dp 3400 is a wonderful earpiece, available at a fairly competitive value, with that cool, functional design and a great deal going for it. No, this is not a similar model the CIA use when guarding Mr. Obama, but it is not a hundred million miles removed, either. This earpiece will do a great job, whilst simultaneously not breaking the bank.
