Re: XE500 Speaker Mic (PMMN4106), Revision B

We just did a bunch of internal testing with the XE500 and not very impressed with the performance. The ruggedized Commander outperformed it in transmit audio quality, even in a high noise environment, without all the bells and whistles. M Which mic did you select instead of the XE500? (Model?) tpg
