A lot of Icoms transceivers have evolved over the years and more and more are featuring Bluetooth.
While Bluetooth technology isnt necessarily new, having a hands-free feature for a radio that you could use in a vehicle on a public road does mean that the radio is complying with the law. The ProEquip BT550 Bluetooth headset has been designed as a hands-free device for a mobile phone and a radio transceiver.
It can be used as a PTT device and features dual microphone control as well as dual connectivity, so you could have your mobile phone connected to the headset as well as a Bluetooth enabled radio transceiver.
The BT550 also has an operating time of 12 hours, standby time of 100 hours and utilises DSP (Digital Signal Processing) noise reduction technology to ensure you get heard in even the noisiest of environments. This Bluetooth headset is compatible with many Icom models including: IC-A16E, IC-A25NE and IC-A120E (UT-133 unit must be installed).
