Great speaker mic, but too heavy-duty  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Excellent speaker sound: loud, clear, undistorted.
Microphone is reported to produce clear, full sound.
This SPM has a good grip with its size, its two rubber pads on the side and its large PTT switch that gives a confirming click when pushed.

The headphone jack sits on top, which is convenient to access but exposed to rain, should that happen.

For a more detailed product description, see their website.

My major gripe with this SPM is its RINO cable: way too stiff and too stubborn. It has a life and will of its own and doesn't want to submit to your ideas on how to route it. On my HT (Yaesu FT-60), the slightest movement of the cable transfers to the plug, which will then move out of its jack slightly and loses contact (and worse: bridges two contacts inside the HT to key the transmitter!)

I will contact Pryme to see if I can exchange that cable for the previous version, if that is softer. If not, I will have to return it. Too bad, I really like the actual speaker mic! 
Product is in production.
