Help me choose headsets for on boat communication

I'm looking for a 2 headset kit to start but expandable. The idea is to allow relaxed communication around the boat when in the marina or anchoring etc...

Looking for noise cancelling one ear type there are a few around but do they last in salt air etc.

Hopefully one I can buy in Australia in the next couple of days.

Re: Help me choose headsets for on boat communication

Hi Dave
These are the best ones I have used and and I have tried a few.:


SENA SPH10 Bluetooth Headset - Ideal for outdoor pursuits


They are NOT cheap


There is a one ear version as well I think.


Good Luck

Re: Help me choose headsets for on boat communication

Dave,

I'll second the SENA SPH10 headsets. We have tried several and these are the ones for many reasons...

And with bluetooth they are excellent for cell phone conversations, even music.

If you are interested in more details, here is a brief blog post...

Best wishes deciding what is ideal for you.

Cheers! Bill
