Rick, I have a pair of Motorola's too. But mine doesn't have VOX. My earbuds have a PTT mic on them. I guess VOX would work. Good question.
I have been considering my FRS/GMRS Two-Way Radios using headset with VOX Mic. Has anyone ever used this configuration while riding motorcycles? I own 4 Motorola Talkabout radios with VOX features but I don't want to buy the headsets unless they work.

I've used VOX for several types of radio systems. PTT is way better IMO because usually engine noise, or some other source of outside input keeps the voice actuation "constantly on". And if you're the "other" guy with the other radio this will drive you crazy because your buddy's radio will be perma keyed. I have not found a VOX system yet that allows you to control the gain on the mic in order to silence it. Not saying there isn't such a thing, I just haven't run across one.
-1 for VOX
+1 for PTT
Im interested to see how this thread evolves.

This may very well be a decent option as well.

It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.
OK, Found some stuff here. Find what you want, click pic, then click View Page, and it will take you to it.
I think I'll get this one Rick. Mount everything to helmet. Mount radio on back of helmet. No wires to tangle up in.
I found my VOX headset I haven't used it in years. It's not the type that would work under a helmet but I did play with it this morning. I have the Motorola MR 350 R radios. I googled the user manual and there are three VOX Setting
Turn your radio on with the VOX headset plugged in.
