value

Reviews around value (5.00 of 5)

  • Good value for a complete radio system with handsfree headset
  • A powerful (5W) and durable radio - they're a great value.
  • These are cheap basic radios that are a great value for the price
  • Product is still a good value for the price but does not transmit NEARLY as far as listed.
  • The "package" of the included car charger and especially the earbuds make this a great value in my mind and why I recommended it.

sound

Reviews around sound (4.59 of 5)

  • These radios work good and have very clear sound have about a 1 or 2 mile range very good battery life till they need recharging
  • Other than the cheap-o earpiece and mic attachment - these little babies pack a punch, feel excellent in the hand, great sound, long battery life with rechargeable batt-pack, multi-function, FRS/GMRS with incredible range in urban setting.
  • very good quality to use on inside Event communication ,clear sound
  • You can also disable the "Beep" sound when transmitting, or no Squelch sound for receiving in conditions such as Hunting, whereby you do not want a radio making noise.
  • and they work great, so much clearer sound and more comfortable

battery life

Reviews around battery life (4.54 of 5)

  • Also the battery life is very poor
  • The battery life is excellent and they are durable as well.
  • Pretty good battery life is not great (but I believe the ones I bought here we're designed for maximum range
  • We haven't tested the range but the clarity is great, the battery life is good and overall we are really happy with these.
  • The range is better than the others and best of all, the battery life is better than the others

feature

Reviews around feature (4.51 of 5)

  • Love cam everything, and the vibrate feature will get your attention
  • Super easy to use and being in South Florida, the weather band is a great additional feature.
  • These radios have great battery life, hold up to driving rain, and have some nifty features.
  • These have some nice features such as NOAA weather channels, ability to use 4aa batteries when the battery pack depletes, dual channel scan and two types of squelch codes CTCSS and DCS
  • The weather station is a nice feature not found on FRS only radios.

distance

Reviews around distance (4.40 of 5)

  • GMRS frequencies provide really good distance about 2.5 mille in neighborhood area.
  • It works really good & goes a good distance before cutting out
  • I play Airsoft so distance is not a concern
  • Obviously the more obstacles you have in between the users the more it cuts out but the distance is very good.
  • not bad will work 30yards in woods and better distance on flat ground or water get 1 to 2 miles

Reviews around quality (4.39 of 5)

  • Holds a good charge.... good sound quality... use for camping and in the boat.... great range
  • I hope to never need them, but the range is great and Midland is a good quality brand.
  • We use them up at Hunt camp and they have great range and great sound quality
  • The radio's work well but the supplied headsets are very poor quality

deadline

Reviews around deadline (3.77 of 5)

  • Unfortunately, I missed the deadline to return the products to Amazon.
  • They helped to facilitate intermittent conversation between my wife and I as we travelled across the great expanses that makeup our great country.
  • They won't work nearly as well as much more expensive HAM hand held radios but they generally allowed communication when we tried.
  • It's not as flexible or soft as you'd hope considering not all ears are created equal
  • We have 2 with extra batteries, highly recommended as they work great for what they were designed to do.

claim

Reviews around claim (3.32 of 5)

  • Having owned and used these radios and others of their type, to make the unqualified claim that they have a 36 mile range is bogus, Even under ideal conditions i.e. one mountain top to another you would be lucky to get a third of the stated range.
  • So no five stars due to the outrageous claim
  • GXT claimed 36 miles range and MR350 claimed 35 miles--both claims are meaningless since nobody would ever achieve the advertised range unless standing on two mountain peaks with perfect conditions.
  • They helped to facilitate intermittent conversation between my wife and I as we travelled across the great expanses that makeup our great country.
  • There should be some kind of regulation that limits the claims these manufacturers are allowed to make..

weather

Reviews around weather (2.90 of 5)

  • I use our radios at our cabin in the mountains as well as on job sites.
  • Kept the group in contact and saved the day when severe weather broke and got everybody safely back to camp in time.
  • a waysI don't know about the 36 miles range, but they sure work well at 3-4 miles range in the woods, as well as in a big concrete and steel building in a metropolitan area.
  • Don't get me wrong, the battery life is excellent, but they'll go from a half charge indicated to dead in about 45min in cold weather.
  • Great product, but don't trust the battery life indicator, especially in cold weather

  • They won't work nearly as well as much more expensive HAM hand held radios but they generally allowed communication when we tried.

  • radio are awesome does what I have to have them for.
  • Used while riding ATVs and its not as clear as I would like and VOX does pick up the ATV noise even on the lowest sensitivity setting
  • Same problem there... does not seem to recognize a 6 volt charger, but will happily accept the 9.5 volt charger.
  • First off, the ear peace blows...does not fit well...and even worse if I was not wearing a helmet, this ear piece would just wabble around with no way of securring it.

connection

Reviews around connection (1.33 of 5)

  • talk buttons do not seem to make proper connection
  • I hunt in a hilly area in East Texas so we didn't get anywhere near 36 miles between us before we lost connection, but that's to be expected in our area
  • I thought I did too until I opened the battery pack and noticed that there is a piece of paper which noted "Please switch to 'Hi' power to get maximum range" stuck between the battery and battery terminal which limited the connection for charge.

forest

  • In thick forest/rough terrain they travel less than 1 mile.
  • Understand that they range is only 1-4 miles in the city or dense forest
  • Seriously, went hiking for a few miles (trail was VERY curvy, but probably 1 mile as the crow flies) around hills and through dense forests at a local state park, and my Mom communicated very clearly, from base camp, with me the entire time
  • Used on deer hunt 2018 and worked flawlessly to 2 mile range in dense forest
