Motorola Solutions Bluetooth® Compatible MU350R Consumer Radios and PTT Button Offer Outdoor Enthusiasts Wireless Hands-Free Communication
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Sept. 15, 2014– Just in time for the fall hunting season, Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) offers its TALKABOUT™ consumer two-way radios and separate push-to-talk button (PTT) allowing hunters to communicate wirelessly by pairing with a Bluetooth headset. The Motorola Talkabout MU350R two-way radios also feature enhanced audio clarity and battery life capabilities, making it a powerful communication device for serious hunting and outdoor enthusiasts.
Wireless Clear Connections For Hands-Free Communication
Hunters can communicate wirelessly without having to worry about getting tangled up with bulky cords by simply coupling the Bluetooth-enabled Motorola MU350R radio with a Bluetooth headset. They can easily monitor their radio channel and press the built-in PTT button when they need to share important information. For situations where greater flexibility and unrestricted communication is needed, the Motorola 1693 Bluetooth PTT button is also available. The oversized button can be rotated to face any direction and easily clipped on a vest or discreetly tucked into a pocket. It connects wirelessly to the MU350R radio and headset, allowing hunters to easily communicate, while staying focused on their game for maximum convenience. The Bluetooth headset and 1693 Bluetooth PTT button are sold separately.
The MU350R also features “Talkabout Clear,” which enhances sound quality for clearer transmissions at a higher volume by reducing distortion with a Class D amplifier. Hunters will also enjoy greater audio clarity, making it easier to communicate with others in the field or at camp. For those moments when silence is especially important, hunters will appreciate the “VibraCall™” function, which silently alerts them to incoming transmissions by vibrating without disturbing game.
Enhanced Battery Life, Flexible Charging For Every Adventure
Serious outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the MU350R radio’s extended battery life capabilities, doubling the amount of battery capacity with the use of two 1300 mAh NiMH battery packs. Additionally, the radios provide the convenience of flexible charging options. They can be charged utilizing a desktop charger, from a PC when no power outlet is available using a mini-USB PC cable, or with standard alkaline batteries. The unique design of the radios uses a high-efficiency wall adapter, which consumes less power during idle conditions making them Eco smart. The desktop charger, mini-USB car and PC cables are sold separately.
