X-Talker Two Way Radio is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery life I use these radios out on the trail and at camp when I am not in the vehicle (where I have a MXT275 installed)--they communicate perfectly with the GMRS radios. What has been the most impressive thing about these walkies is the battery life! I have had them on for the whole weekend at camp and they still had plenty of juice left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for almost all of our outdoor activities We’ve had these for several months along with our MXT275 and they are a perfect combo. Our offroad/overland group in Albuquerque is in the process of switching everyone over to the FRS/GMRS system. In the meantime having these portable radios allows us to hand these out till they get their vehicle mounted radios. We love how easily we can charge these through a USB while driving or at home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I had to choose one, these would be it! These little handhelds are amazing. Long battery life (USB rechargeable), easy to use, and great range. I've used them inside of a moving conveyor overlanding trips with various other drivers using Midland handhelds, MXT400's, MXT275 and off-brand radios; zero issues and great reception. We use them out of the vehicle for hikes, vehicle spotting, and all-around camp radios. Like the title says, if I had to choose one (actually 2) it would be these because of the versatility and recharging capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected from Midland I purchased the X-Talkers about a month ago. I decided I needed some better comms here on my property, as well as when I’m in my truck. So far, the Talkers have performed better than expected in this hilly part of Virginia. They’re also much more rugged than they appear on the website. My next purchase will likely be one of the Micros for my Tundra. I’ve been buying Midland products (CB radios) and the Talkers are very different, with more and better features, along with more range than any CB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Prouduct overall I have had Midland CB radios before and never had any problems at all, still have one that is more then 20 years and still working great. And with the new handhelds I just got I'm sure will get the same great performance and the cost was a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midland goes to missionaries in Honduras We bought these for use by missionary teams in Honduras, The ranges will make it east for teams to communicate. Midland was our choice for ease of use and reliability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading Look these are very good for what they are. But the up to range advertised is BS . You never will get close to the 30+ miles it suggests. Yes I know it all has to do with conditions and such. But 30plus miles isnt gonna happen. Ive tried on a flat beach nothing in the way and maybe a mile +- . Was the range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small radios, large range, great buy We farm in some very uneven and hilly ground. Previous radios barely had enough range for 3 miles, but these radios exceeded our expectations. We paired these with MXT115s and they worked great. Our main tractors and combines had the micromobiles and our truckers had the X talkers. There were a few times when we had range over 12 miles away which for our area is amazing. Very pleased with this product. Great battery life, very light and portable, and the mic volume is great. Highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for closer range communications We travel full time with two vehilces and having constant communication is key. They work great for closer range comms and we love the fact that they are micro USB rechargeable. There are plenty of station choices so it's pretty easy to have one to ourselves even in more densely populated areas. They are an incredible value for what they are and the comapct size makes them easy to toss in a backpack in case we get separated on a hike. Great little radios to use in many aspects of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than before I have 6 of the gxt1000 and now I have 6 of the new x-talker radios and have to say I like the features in the new radio. The usb charging is great, the louder volume with the hand mic and the battery charge speeds are all improved and make radio even better than before. We use them for team mountain bike rides in challenging terrain and get great range and clarity that helps keep our team safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Radios I bought these to use in my Jeep club while off-road. Let me tell you that these radios work great. The range is a lot more than the cb’s that we have been using.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great range and intuitive buttons The X-Talker T7-1VP3 2-Radio set was perfect for my husband and I to use in conjunction with the X-Talker Walkie- Talkie 4-Pack. Between us and 4 kids, we all had radios to use on a recent camping trip. I took the radio on a hike, and it was great to touch base with my husband who was still at the beach, in addition to keeping track of the kids on bike rides in the Refuge and at the campground. Their buttons and switches were easy to figure out. We found their range to be excellent. My husband kayaked at least a mile away, and I was still able to communicate with him without interference or fuzziness. We like that it has Weather band alerts, as camping relies on knowledge of weather. The radio charging base has a wall plug, and a USB charging plug which is great on trips. The battery life seemed decent--a few times the radios were left on overnight, which I think killed the batteries sooner than they should have been. Build quality seemed sturdy--one of the radios got left out in a surprise thunderstorm and did not seem worse for wear. We liked that the radios can be set up with a password channel for privacy We also really appreciated that the radios work great with the Walkie-Talkies that we had for the kids. It promoted peace of mind for all of us whether biking, hiking, or boating on this trip. Minor Cons: To improve the radios, I would add some weather-sealing, and perhaps slightly more tough plastic as the shells on these seem like they could crack if dropped hard on pavement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Very happy with the purchase. I bought these (on the advice of Midland customer service, who was very helpful) for skiing with my family. My wife and I wanted to be able to stay in touch on the mountain without fumbling for cell phones or worrying about signal. These work perfectly, even from peak to base (albeit a small mountain). These made our ski days so much easier that we bought a pair for our friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Set-up I have had these two for over a year now and I have been nothing but happy with them. The USB charging option is a great feature especially when using them for long car rides. The quality is great and they are pretty darn durable. My only complaint is that if you use the AVPH10 shoulder speaker mic with them, it runs down the battery faster than I'd like. Other than that, the radios are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just like it should We use Two-Way Radios around our Feed and Seed Store to aid in our communication and be able to load customers quickly and efficiently. We really like the X-talker Radios! They are easy to use, dependable and affordable. (Just don't drop them in water.....) We appreciate Midland because we know we can trust their customer service. Thanks Midland for another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4x4 Trail Comms I have a Midland GMRS radio hard mounted in my truck and when I go out with friends they often don't have communications in their truck. Carrying the X-Talker allows me to hand them off to others during the day. Also, having a spotter with a handheld is very helpful, these are perfect for that. They are easy to charge on the go and I always have them ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best handhelds I've ever used Love these little walkies. Great to throw in the truck or backpack before an adventure, or easy to share when breaking up from a group. These have come in great use when using a spotter on a tight line - no more yelling over the engine noise. Good battery, loud and easy to use. Dropped one out of a moving truck going 30 mph (soft road) and it still worked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Radios I have using the Midland Radio X- Talker for a while and love them. The radios are rugged and easy to use. They come in handy for hikes away from camp or getting out and spotting someone on a offload obstacle. Also great having the weather function built in to get local NOAA information. The radios have great reception and clear dialogue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad battery life Just got a set of these last week as a gift. kids were so excited because we could now talk between campers. The radios do not even last 10 mins after being fully charged. Even if you don’t use them they die in 2 hours. They claim to have a 15 hour battery life. Kids are so sad that their new toys do not work for long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Radios with USB Charging and Range! I bought these radios for family road trips where cell signal is somewhat unreliable. These radios provide usb charging, great range between vehicles and privacy channels that allow clear transmissions between radios without any outside interference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't say enough good things about these radios. Absolutely love there. They have been our go-tos for camping, hiking, skiing, spotting while offroading and more. They are reliable, the battery life is awesome, and they recharge via USB in a pinch. What more could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST RADIOS EVER I been using these off and on for two years almost now. One has been ran over, they’ve both been underwater a couple times, gone days with out a recharge, and always are crystal clear in audio transmission. Solid radios !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity, quality and durability These Midland radios are great! I bought the X-Talkers to teach my kids about radio communications use and importance. X-Talkers are a great place to start and overall use. My XT511, MXT400 abd GXTs are awesome as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthy compromise This 3AA model fills the smaller form factor niche, while pairing well with the features and controls of my GTX1000 series units. I much prefer the AA to AAA models for total mAh capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery life We bought the X-TALKER T71VP3 Two-Way Radio’s to go with our MXT275 and they work great. The battery life is great on the T71VP3. We put them to the test on a week long wheeling trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for what we need. Bought a few weeks ago. So far seems to work fine for our needs. We use to communicate on five acres. Pretty easy to get started using. The direct usb charging is a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price We utilize these radios for our beachfront hotel. They work well, charge quickly and last a long time. For the most part they send a good/clear signal.
