Hear easily with loud 700mW audio output and keep on the job with approximately 18 hours of operating time. With a new interface design with large directional buttons, you gain fast access to menu items and radio functions.

Compact, slim and ergonomic design allows easy one-handed operation. Rigorously tested for durability, the M73PLUS meets MIL-STD 810 specifications. Active noise canceling cuts through the noisiest of marine environments. “Bass Boost” emphasizes lower frequency for better audio. “Last Call” features allow voice recording and playback functions.

Active noise cancelling technology: 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.

“Last Call” voice recording: “Last Call” features allow voice recording and playback functions. Voice recording function automatically saves the last incoming call for one minute. You can also start recording manually. You will not miss an important call.
