Came in normal package, but the actual mic itself was stored inside a nice cardboard package. Other items like the extra earpieces were bagged up individually, helps keeps things organized and prevents damage to the mic itself during transport. Personally I would recommend a separate case to hold the mic, but the box works just as good. Quality from incoming transmission is clear. Outgoing transmission varies, must be high up on the throat to collect voice, but is clear if high enough. The best way I check if it’s collecting my speech is if the throat mic itself vibrates when speaking, or having another radio on hand to do a radio check. Cord is long for any long term thing, but must be probably stashed away in order to not get caught if you are working with it. The earpiece cord itself is also pretty long for me, I had to find a way to attach it to the throat mic so it doesn’t stick out. Unfortunately for me, my neck is too skinny so I have to keep adjusting it but it fits well even for a skinny neck like mine. Attaches well to the XG-15, though have to replug on occasion when hit with a bump, but also could be a potential technical difficult with my radio. Does the job and does it well.
