X-Talker Two Way Radio is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little radio Bought this specifically for a trip out west but have found myself using it with my buddies on camping trips more often than our cb’s. Very quite operation. Range is good. Voice is crisp and clear. Functions are fairly easy once you learn the proper ways to use them. Weather stations are clear also and come in handy when you’re “off the grid” in the woods somewhere and need weather updates. Over all I really like these radios. I just purchased a new mxt275 to pair with these radios and to get out a little further with a bigger antenna. That way I can have the hand helds to share with friends that may not have comms when we’re on the trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy with good sound quality! I work at a day camp that offers year-round children's programming, and after the last of our old walkie talkies bit the dust, we were in the market for something that fit into our budget but also would last well and have good sound quality (the old ones we were using sounded like you were communicating with Mars even if you were just feet away). After much research, I decided on these, and we love them! Over the 3 months or so since we bought our first ones to try out, the sound quality has been great, and we have not had any issues with them (good battery life, reliable, none of the clips have broken--which is a record for us). Unless our experience changes, I will continue buying these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Radio I have an outdoor business with 12-15 workers every day using this radio. The radio is very reliable and has better range compared to the other two way radios that Midland has. However, it was advertised as having a battery that lasts 12 hours. Many of the batteries do not last 8 hours. The other radios that Midland has lasted longer. The problem seems to be that the battery does not have enough capacity. I keep replacing batteries and some last longer and others do not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely short range I bought a pair of these for use on my farm. I like the features and sturdy design, but the range on these is ridiculously short. These can't reach 1/2 mile from the house on a hill even over pastures. I tried in several areas over various terrain, and multiple channels including GMRS channels. They'll never do 36 miles, but I certainly expected to get 2-3 miles in a rural area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance I have had my model for going on 3 years now. The battery life is amazing. I have had excellent range in heavily wooded areas and incredible range over long unobstructed distances like fields and roadways. Built tough and to last working in the real world mine have been dropped and they held up to the kids playing with them at campgrounds. I intend to pair it with the micro mobile radio that I see offered now as a package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Radios They work perfectly as they said they would. No issues and they are very clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, Clear Transmission, and Good Range I use these to speak from vehicle to vehicle in the MOAB Desert. We have not cell service so these are essential!
Date published: 2018-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built, User Friendly and Works Great We utilize these for communication in and around camp, when spotting obstacles for drivers when off roading, and for vehicle to vehicle communications when in groups. Having the ability to nest them in their charger for travel, and charge with either USB or 110v ensures they're always ready when we need them. The controls make changing settings very simple, even for users with little radio experience. They are an excellent option for someone looking for radios that are simple to operate, have great battery life, and have held up great to our outdoor lifestyle.

How exactly does this product compare to the X-TALKER T290VP4 TWO-WAY RADIO?

Asked by: ASA11
The T71 has a better battery that charge quicker. It also has micro-USB charging which the T290 does not. It is license free where the T290 requires a GMRS license. It is about a 2 watt radio where the T290 is about a 3 watt radio.

I'm wondering if there is a place on the radio to attach a small lanyard. I'd like to utilize the two-way radio proholster with this but am not sure the tether can attach to a string on the radio or not.

Asked by: Ciarra
Unfortunately, there is not a place on the radio to attach a lanyard.

How do I get my X talker T71VP3 to transmit to other midland models or differnet brand of radios using the same channel? I can hear the transmission from the other radios on the channel but they do not hear me.

Asked by: stwill23
Hey there, As long as you have FRS or GMRS radios, you would need to ensure you are on the same channel and you should have no issue communicating. You should check to make sure you do not have your radio set to a privacy code. We can walk you through some troubleshooting if you give us a call at 816-241-8500 between 8:00am - 4:30pm CST Monday - Friday. MidlandUSA

Date published: 2020-04-12

In product descriptions on line it has the GXT1000 listed as having 5 watts on high, and the X-Talker T71VP3 as having 1.5 watts on high. Would you be able to verify X-Talker is indeed 5 watts? Thanks!

The X-Talker T71VP3 is a 2-watt radio.

I bought the midland and I went less than 1 mile and there was no reception? Is there a special setting or should I just return the item?

Asked by: David
Less than a mile in a city, from inside or outside? Glass, and buildings will substantially limit your range, as well as from inside buildings. If possible do another test in a more rural environment if you have not already.
