Is it different? You bet! It FLOATS, has a Clear Voice Boost feature, a true noise canceling microphone, and more!
Clear Voice Boost: In addition to manual adjustment, the radio itself adjusts speaker output level automatically according to the ambient sound pressure level so that you will not miss communications during a sudden burst of noise. The automatically set volume can be instantly overridden by manual operations including instant max volume / mute selection.
Other features include a true noise canceling internal microphone, weather alert, Dual- and Tri-watch and optional waterproof/floating speakermic. It’s LOUD too! 700mAh (typical) audio output power—twice previous generation entry-class radios. Maximum-allowed 6 watts RF transmit power. Two-step power save function—Stretch the battery charge to its limits. Very large backlit display and keypad—easy to use in foul weather!
