the 2.5mm plug has different 'bands' on them. One of the metal bands, not the black plastic ones, is meant for the voice. as your earpieces do not have a voice side, they will be making contact, and the radios are thinking you are holding down the talk button. Which obviously does not exist.

Is there anyway to make the earpiece not do this ?
