I am looking to see if anyone is able to help me out with covert earpiece issues.
I am an SRO at a school in which the staff of the school uses Motorola CP200d radios. I have used various mic\earpiece combos for years but they do not last very long due to shorting out where the wire bends back downwards at the pin connector. I keep the radio on my belt and the wire runs back down into my uniform shirt and then back up behind my shirt to my ear and shirt collar area.
I just found a 2 pin Motorola male to 2 pin Motorola female adapter online that may help to keep the strain off of the wire at the plug. However, I was wondering if there was a product that had the 3.5mm and 2.5mm posts reversed so that when used the wire would be running down instead of up. I even thought about trying to repair a few of the old earpieces that I have but can’t find replacement plugs to be used. (This may be out of my ability if the wires are shielded etc.)
Any help or tips would be appreciated!!
