As with all equipment, it's not perfect. I have 6 sets for my team, we have 12 sets total with motorola radios. They take a few minutes to set up to get them set on your throat correctly. We then tape them in place. Turn your volume up high enough. Speak slowly and clearly. Run the wires down the inside of your clothes so you don't catch them on bushes. With all that, I'd give them a 8 on a 10 rating, which I believe is very good for throat mikes.

I've found for throat mikes that the BEST SOLUTION (tape unsticks with sweat, grime etc), is to get a neck protector, and cut slits in the side to stick the mikes in. This keeps the mikes from moving, and applies pressure on them against your neck. This also doesn't require moving the PTT button, so you can put that back on your finger, so you can talk by just moving your thumb (great for recon).
I personally had a firefox set up, and that worked well... it didn't solve the weak wiring though, I ended up shredding the thing going through some bushes.
Right now I'm running with a set up by Pryme, and its 100 times better, its got nice thick heavy duty wires, two mikes, good sound, and an ear tube. This company hamcity carries them for 79 dollars. I'm a huge fan and I'd recomend them to anyone.

I ordered the Iasus NT Sniper Pro last night, maybe this will be a better quality throat mic. I would not buy anything from Fire Fox, but that is just me. I hope it works out for you either way, I just had to vent. Thanks.
