Yacht customers benefit from the optional VOX headset and adapter option that allows someone handling dock lines to use both hands, while docking the boat, simultaneously communicating with the captain.
Last Call Voice Recording
The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last incoming call for 1 minute. You can also start recording manually. You will not miss an important call.

The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. You will hear better and clearer!
Bass Boost Function
The signal processing technology emphasizes low-pitched sound to provide a rich bass sound for both transmit and receive signals.
