Earpieces are an essential two-way radio accessory in several industries, including security, retail, hospitality, and more. There are several factors to consider when selecting an earpiece style for your two-way radio.
Here are the top 3 things you need to keep in mind when purchasing an earpiece.
Users should select an earpiece according to the size and shape of their ear. For most people, we recommend using Impact’s clear acoustic tube earbud that provides the highest quality audio. The earbud at the end of the acoustic tube comes in different sizes. People with small ear canals would require a smaller size earbud, while most people would require a standard size. We recommend using the molded ear gel for those that might find the standard earbud uncomfortable since it sits inside the ear instead of going down the ear canal.
If people have problems using even a small earbud, we recommend an ear hook with a speaker that sits inside the ear. Earpieces with Impact’s D1 adjustable ring can accommodate all ear sizes and are ideal for users who require a hearing aid.
The earpiece you purchase should depend on what your intended use is. For security and public safety, the earpiece needs to be discreet, reliable, functional, and super-tough. Impact’s Platinum Series earpieces work perfectly and fulfill every security requirement.
In the education, retail, and hospitality industries, where more than one person might use accessories, earpieces must be easily replaceable, competitively priced, and remarkably robust. Impact’s Gold Series earpieces come with 12 interchangeable options creating the most cost-effective, versatile, and hygienic solution on the market. The Silver Series earpieces provide significant cost savings for users on a budget yet still offer fantastic quality with reliable components.

Comfort is vital, especially for users who wear earpieces for long hours at a stretch. Impact’s Soft Silica Comfort Earbuds are light and stable and provide added comfort for longer use. For a less expensive option, users can select the molded ear gel made of soft silica gel that comes in three different sizes.
Impact’s ear hooks have silicone rubber that goes around them for comfort, so they do not dig into the ear. However, for people with glasses, wearing ear hooks can often get uncomfortable. These people require an earpiece with a thinner, smaller hook that does not have silicone rubber. The EH-4 style earpiece provides more ease of wear for users that wear glasses
