Buying A Hands Free Walkie Talkie

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Buying a hands free walkie talkie is simply a matter of identifying the features and quality you need in a 2 way radio. Many handsfree walkie talkies are designed to operate only in a hands free environment whereas other models are designed to function either with or without the use of your hands. Walkie Talkie headsets can be purchased as stand alone devices and add-ons for your existing walkie talkie. Similarly other special designs accommodate either specific functions or versatility. 

Types Of Hands Free Walkie Talkies

There are a number of different types of hands free walkie talkies. The most obvious of which is the headset or shoulder mount. If you get one of these accessories you will have to decide on the quality of the accessory as it relates to the quality of your two-way radio. For instance a kids walkie talkie isn't likely powerful enough to warrant an expensive high end wireless addition however a simple add-on may be appropriate. Likewise a long range walkie talkie may lose some of it's quality if a wireless accessory is used. To minimize signal degradation a wired should holster may be better suited.
