HAWK lapel microphone is quickly becoming an industry standard for law enforcement. It is lightweight, easy to conceal and best of all, the whole unit is essentially on one cable. The unidirectional microphone easily attaches to the user's garment by way of a metal rotating clothing clip. The microphone is sensitive to a whisper so an officer does not need to turn their head into their shoulder to communicate. This unit comes with an additional Rubber Ear-Mold which allows the user to hear ambient sound as well as the radio. Also, two rubber ear tips are provided to block out the ambient sound when necessary. Now with the addition of the Quick Release feature the user can remove the unit from the radio and still leave the adapter on the radio. This allows the user to remove the radio from the body without having to remove the entire unit from under their clothes. And remember with a Quick Release adapter attached to the radio, it will function in its normal manner.
