What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cobra CX T225 20 Mile GMRS/FRS 2-Way Radio Walkie Talkies
  • They had no trouble going a couple of miles in the suburbs. On the cruise ship I was surprised at just how well they worked.
  • They provide lots of functions with a wide variety of channels and we never had an issue.
  • Just for setting them up around the campus of a church for a walk through production and to allow the behind the scenes people to talk to each other - it was great.
  • The many channels really helped as other people were using walkie talkie's as well, so we were able to have our own private channel.
  • They work great in the woods, we tested it at 10 miles and the sound was perfect
Cobra CXT 1035R FLT Floating Walkie Talkies
  • They seem very good, function well and transmit clearly.
  • A little pricey but worth it. They have a good range in the clear but all walkie talkies are limited if blocked.
  • I love the range they get and they do not loose signal easily.
  • They have pretty good range; we are able to talk, with a little bit of static, across the waterpark, about 1/4 mile apart.
  • Work great so far, decent range in the city, have not used in the mountains yet.
  • The reality is they do not even make it half a mile (.5) in my residential area which is largely unobstructed because it's part of a golf course.
  • The range is terrible, it won't pick up your voice if your whispering

What customers say about "Features"
Cobra CX T225 20 Mile GMRS/FRS 2-Way Radio Walkie Talkies
  • It works well using the hands-free option but I tend to use the button more.
  • They're very compact, the buttons are all rubber, and the screen is clear and easy to read, especially when its' display light is on.
  • The lock feature was nice so the kids didn't accidentally change channels but you do need to remember to unlock it before you are able to turn it off.
  • I bought these for motorcycle rides, and put a 2.5 mm headset in it, works awesome.
Cobra CXT 1035R FLT Floating Walkie Talkies
  • Great set of walks, like the led light, an option of recording what was last said.
  • Lots of cool extras. My necessities were rechargeable or throw away batteries, waterproof and floating. I love them.
  • It's packed with a lot of features that will surely come in handy in case of emergency.
  • The playback feature is really helpful. Even though there are a lot of functions, the symbols on the handset make it fairly easy to figure out.
