Devgru Frogman headset

Postby Iceman92 » Mon Jun 22, 2009 1:40 am

I've been thinking about buying one of these for a long time and now I'm probably gonna get one.

My question is this; Does it come with any adapters?
And which one goes to Midland radios?

I think the adapter is this one.

Am I wrong?

He means this one: http://www.airsoftextreme.com/store/ind ... ts_id=1848

Wonderful piece of kit, excellent sound going both ways. Puts up with a lot of abuse. Well worth the money.

Well, there's nothing wrong with making sure.
I know which ones to get now.

Any pointers on the headset?
Any Pros or Cons that they don't mention?

Not really. I haven't had a single problem with mine. The PTT switch is a big, beefy unit, very positive tactile feel. You have to push the button on purpose to talk. Its survived several games on my sweaty head. The Mic is very easy to place, and while it might move a little during gameplay, it still moves less than every other headset I've used. The earpiece does tend to limit your hearing to the side, but not enough to get you killed.

In short, I love mine, and I'm glad I spent the money on it.

They're on sale at AEX for 120$ so I'm gonna go pick one up.

You might think about the eBaybanned ones as well...I have been pretty happy with mine - especially considering it is $25.

^ Yep same here. Once I got the proper radio, it's worked a treat.

the devgru headset is very nice and well worth the money! I am very happy I bought one and have no regrets so far. I bought mine from AEX. and it works well with midland radios.

I know, I know.
This is a necro, but is this what i think it is?

It looks a helluva lot like a Devgru too me.

Chinese crap, avoid it. Yes, its half the cost, but its probably half-cost for a reason. Do yourself the favor and spend the money. Good comms are worth good money.

As someone who owns and has used one, I dont think they are bad at all. That being said - if you want to get that one just go get it off EBB or $25.

I'm going to purchase the bowman style headset from ebay banned. Through several threads discussing replica headsets I have yet to get a definitive answer as to which headsets/adapters work with Midland GMRS radios, therefore since it looks to be an experiment... I'll start out with only investing $25.

No doubt that you get what you pay for, but $150 is a lot of money on something that may or may not work.
