Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Throat Mic Microphone Covert Acoustic Tube Bodyguard FBI Earpiece Headset With Finger PTT for 1-pin Motorola Talkabout Cobra Radio (Electronics)
The product arrived fairly quickly, and I had purchased it for use during my airsoft games. The first problem is that I am a skinny guy (throat circumference 15" measured around the larynx) and the throat mic wasn't very tight to my neck, meaning that if I wanted it to pick up any of my speech I had to secure it to my neck to hold it over my larynx (voice box). The sound through the earpiece is great, it also cancels the background sound in that ear so you can hear everything being transmitted. The Push-To-Talk button is okay, however my advice is that you cover the end of it in tape as mine got shot in the first game I used it in and now I will have to re-solder the wires to the switch. All in all, the product is what is advertised and the main fault is because of my body type.

Hi Niki;
Firstly, thank you for a decent review... and on to my question to you... You state you're a skinny guy and have trouble with the size of the throat mic.
I have a 16 and a half inch neck, would you consider this to be a good tight fit for the throat mic?
If you could edit your review to add what you're approximate neck size is and what neck sizes you would think to be a suitable fit for the throat mic, this would be a great help for customers. Because, as usual, the seller doesn't provide this important info..!

Kind regards,
Steve.

Hi Steven, my throat is approximately 15" in circumference around the larynx area. An extra inch could just about do it, however it would likely be the smallest I would recommend for the mic. If you still have doubts and intend to use the mic for something similar to airsofting or paintball, then I would recommend getting a bowman headset instead (provided it fits in with your loadout).

I wonder if you can help? Where exactly do you position the throat mike? Mine turned up today, but I'm not exactly sure where it should go. Thanks

Mic should fit either side of your Adams apple, or as close as you can get.
