Hearing Above the Noise
Finding the Right Headsets & Earpieces for your Motorola Two-Way Radios / Walkie-Talkies
Noise is a big part of our world– whether it is at our homes or workplace. However, as acknowledged by reputable organisations such as the World Health Organization (WHO)1, there are health risks involved for employees who are exposed to loud environments daily.
The International Labour Office (ILO) states that more than one third of workers in the manufacturing industry are exposed to hazardous noise, which can lead to irreversible hearing loss and tinnitus 2. To address the issue, the Motorola Original Headset and Earpiece accessories were created as the ideal solution for organisations to protect their employees from the noise while staying connected for greater efficiency and safety.
Ultra-Light Ear-Sets and Light-Weight Headsets
Ideal for tasks that require discretion, mobility, and/or comfort. Ultra-lights consist of a single on-ear speaker with a microphone, while headsets have a flexible band that is worn over the head. As these are smaller in size and close to the ear, they prevent others from overhearing while enabling the wearer to receive transmissions without disturbance.
Heavy Duty Headsets
Integrated into industrial ear-defenders, these wired headsets are plugged into your two-way radios for improved auditory performance that allows the wearer to be able to hear radio audio without getting their hearing damaged by loud surrounding sounds.
XBT Heavy-Duty Wireless Headset
Made for those who are seeking for clear communication without the presence of wires. Connected with Bluetooth, these wireless headsets are integrated with the Sound Enhancer Noise Suppression (SENS) technology that effectively blocks off noise while relaying normal conversational speech clearly.
Industrial Noise Cancelling Remote Speaker Microphone (INC RSM)
Hear and be heard with the exceptional noise-cancelling and multi-directional microphone that distinguishes between background noise and speech– overcoming excessive noise and allowing clear communication in a busy environment.
Speak and Be Heard
Motorola Original Accessories for Remote Speaker Microphones
Designed for professionals who do not want to reach for their radios every time they want to speak or listen, the Motorola Original Accessories for Motorola Remote Speaker Microphones come in various unique features that cater to specific needs. These features offer enhanced functionality such as noise-cancellation, programmable buttons, volume control, an audio jack, and even waterproof models with an ingress protection rating of IP68.
Ideal for discretion and minimal disturbance. Connecting an earpiece to a remote speaker microphone helps prevent others from overhearing transmissions as well as maintaining low noise levels in any environment.
Most commonly used when operating outdoors in heavy wind blowing areas. The windporting technology is designed to eliminate whining and howling sounds that often distort relayed messages. It is also IP57-rated, making it submersible at one meter for 30 minutes while effectively preventing water from clogging the microphone to result in clearer transmissions.
Consisting of two microphones, this type of microphone fully optimises audio quality by discriminating between voices and ambient noise. The microphone reduces the noise level of the surrounding, which allows for clearer communication and better efficiency. Ideal for environments with loud sounds that require clear communication such as construction sites or event security.
Ideal for quality and consistent audio communication in loud environments, the IMPRES audio technology is a smart feature that compensates changes in voice levels. Whether you are speaking softly, or moving, or turning your head around, IMPRES remote speaker microphones suppress background noises and improve voice intelligibility no matter how noisy the environment is.
Wireless Remote Speaker Microphone Units
At times, wires may become too much of a hassle when you are actively moving around at work. Wireless remote speaker microphones help you to be able to move freely and communicate clearly via Bluetooth through your Motorola two-way radios / walkie-talkies. Additional features such as the Long Range Wireless Remote Speaker Microphones will even allow you to leave the radio in a work bag and still operate it from distances up to one hundred metres away.
Energy to Rely On
Batteries and Chargers for your Motorola Two-Way Radios / Walkie-Talkies
During mission-critical situations, having reliable batteries are as important as having reliable radios. A common problem with batteries is that the older a battery is, the lesser charge they hold. This could make a big difference during long shifts as the batteries do not last as long as they should anymore, increasing the risk of being unable to communicate with anyone during emergency situations or having to go through the trouble of recharging or changing batteries. With various unknown situations and factors that can affect a battery’s life, choosing the best type to power your Motorola Two-Way Radio / Walkie-Talkie can eliminate your chances of being unequipped for emergencies.

An innovative battery charging and reconditioning system that automates battery maintenance to reduce cost and promote efficiency. With the use of intelligent batteries and chargers, IMPRES radio batteries and chargers work in tandem to prolong the battery life by up to 43%*. The IMPRES Fleet Management application software, on the other hand, allows support of up to 25,000 batteries in the same location while enabling you to remotely monitor and analyse the status of the batteries.
*For IMPRES batteries, charged and maintained with an IMPRES charger, our testing shows that you will increase the number of charge cycles by around 43% (430 – 700 charging cycles).
When it comes to the runtime of a battery, the location of where the radio will mostly be in is important to note and pre-specified before bringing it there. If the temperature does not match the specific battery type, it will cause the battery’s capacity to decrease, and in turn, your cost of replacing them to increase. For example, in cold conditions or refrigerated environments, a low-temperature battery would be better suited for your Motorola Two-Way Radio / Walkie-Talkie for better and longer lasting battery health.
Environments that are on the wetter side of the spectrum is often a risk factor for most electronics. Whether it is due to steam, rain, or high humidity, batteries with specific IP ratings, including those for total water submersion, should be noted and chosen specifically before purchasing the batteries to prevent unnecessary risks.
In potentially explosive and hazardous environments, having intrinsically-safe batteries and two-way radios are essential to prevent any fatal mishaps. Intrinsically-safe batteries, also known as explosion-proof batteries, are designed and certified safe for hazardous environments to not create any spark or emit electrical charges that may lead to explosions. explosion proof. Discover more about our ATEX-certified batteries that are approved for explosive environments here.
Choosing a battery with the right capacity depends on how often you or your operatives use the Motorola Two-Way Radios / Walkie-Talkies and its features. A general rule of thumb is that the longer the period between charges is, the higher the battery capacity should be. Take note of the features in the radio– if it has Bluetooth®, GPS, or even the frequency of receiving and transmitting would tend to use more battery power, therefore requiring a higher capacity battery to last the full shift.
As technology progresses, batteries now have the capability to be smaller and hold more power with the available energy. Motorola Solutions now have two types of batteries that you can choose from: Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH), which is suitable for those who does not use the radio extensively and for long hours, or Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), which allows the user to have lighter batteries with longer run time between charges.
