Just got a mic and aker amp but...
« on: Jun 19, 2015, 03:25 AM »
Ok so I just got an Aker 1505 and the headset. I love the sound but how do I get it to be voice activaited instead of staying open all the time. When I breath, all you can hear is chubby guy breathing sounds. And I do not want to have to use a push to talk at all. When I install the fans I got, I do not want it to pick up the sound of them either.

I think you have to buy something separate in order to get the Aker to go from always on to voice-activated. 

Get on the Google and search for iCOMM (they've closed out several of those links from my workplace so I can't post anything directly right now) and you may find what you're looking for.

Ahhh the iCOMM I have seen that. I thought it was just a static burst machine. Thank you!

Throat mic?

This link provided as example, can probably find cheaper:

I was weary of getting one. How is the sound quality of one of those?

I tried using throat mics when I played airsoft.  TBH- they suck.  IF you could hear someone, it was either garbled or sounded like they were talking from 2 miles away.  Not really good when you're taking fire :laugh:

Just FYI, the above Throat mic in an Aker works fine - loud and clear with minimal distortion at the "beside the adam's apple" position.

Thanks Kuu. I already ordered that one. It got here rather quick also. The dilvery date said between july 2 and july 5. It got here on june 26. So far it seems fine but its hard for me to hear the sound it puts out of my aker 1505. So when I am able to get someone to listen for me I will know for sure.

It works ok. Without the icomm i got for it it works real good. When i plug it into the icomm, to me it seems more muffled but i think I am just having issues. In the future i may get a fancier throat mic but its good for now.
