    Any way to communicate while cruising on the water?

    Looking for something to communicate or talk to another rider while riding. My guess is nothing available. Wind noise too much. Anyone use anything and don't want to use a helmet.

    This truly hands free Jet ski Communicator Kit has been custom made specifically for Jet Ski / PWC to Jet Ski / PWC Communication and is The ONLY PRACTICAL SOLUTION AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET FOR THIS APPLICATION.

    We know this because we have been searching for a solution for over TWO YEARS and come up with nothing that fit properly, so as a result we have had these units custom designed to do what we wanted to do communication jet ski to jet ski whilst riding at any speed without having to take our hands off the handle bars and jeopardise safety whilst being able to clearly hear each other without being drowned out by wind noise etc.

    Obviously, there are other benefits such as being able to communicate with SEAWAY Towers before crossing bars and also being able to communicate with local volunteer marine rescue radio rooms...

    This Product perfectly eliminates the background noises and avoids echoes.

    We have also had our own custom made neoprene pouch made to suit our Cobra VHF Hand Held Radios with our hands free kits which mount the radio on a strap of your life jacket safely. When you wish to remove your radio to charge the battery, you can easily.

    The durability, superior audio performance and excellent design specifically for jet skis with our neoprene pouch and waterproof connectors to our waterproof Cobra radios combined with the handlebar press to talk button makes this the only choice for PWC enthusiasts.

    We simply set up the kit on our life jackets and leave them on the PFDs. Only the Radio is removed from the jacket to re-charge the radio battery as needed. This makes it real easy every time we want to use our jet skis, its all ready to go!

    We use them when we travel in a small group (practically every week end) we no longer need to stop and try to get their attention to call someone over to tell them something. We can now point out things along the way to each other including letting each other know of potentially dangerous scenarios up ahead that the other riders may not have seen yet or suggest an alternative route or simply point out a great view we spot along the way.

    With our fully custom designed comfortable earpiece combined with our heavy duty throat microphone and handlebar mounted press to talk button this is the ideal bundle with our Cobra VHF Two Way radios as it frees your hands from having to hold the Microphone whilst riding. It produces almost NO WIND NOISE and is loud and clear at high speeds.

    The ear piece fits snugly in your ear and the microphone is comfortable around your neck. When in use, the hands free throat microphone blocks out virtually all background noise. It also features a lapel clip which can be clipped on your life Jacket so the hands free cable does not get in your way.

    The Throat microphone has been designed with a high quality new generation transponder that sits on the side of the neck ring. This greatly improves vibration sensing and provides a reliable communication - the dual transponders we tested did not compare to a single high quality transponder

    The neck strap which is adjustable for a comfortable fit, has been designed with a magnetic break-away which enables quick and fast removal, yet is designed so that whilst on your neck, wont break loose.

    On top of this, the ergonomically designed transparent acoustic coiled tube earbud provides a low profile look and can be adjusted vertically. And it can also be rotated horizontally to locate the ear tunnel for optimal comfort.
    Key Benefits:

    • Designed to be used for PWC / Jet Skis
    • Neoprene PFD / Life Jacket Pouch
    • Ultra-sensitive dual microphone system cancels noise by over 90%
    • Adjusts to fit users ear & neck
    • Polyurethane cable reinforced with Kevlar
    • Modular Microphone cable
    • Coiled Acoustic tube from inbuilt speaker with outstanding volume and clarity
    • Waterproof inline PTT Switch
    • Handlebar Mounted PTT Switch
    • Applicable to all types of sport even outside PWC/Jet skiing snow and water skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, skateboarding, motorcycling, fishing, boating, hunting, camping, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, paintball and more!
    • Heavy Duty Throat Microphone specifically chosen that suits the use on a jetski / PWC environment.
    This heavy duty throat microphone comes with proprietary bone conduction transducer with dual microphone sensors to ensure excellent audio quality and intelligibility.

    The comfortable neck band for secure wearing position is designed to enhance audio quality while the quick disconnect feature allows for various listening options to suit a diversified working environment.

    It was designed specifically for people working in a high ambient noise environment like we are in with our jet skis at speed. It is a highly robust Heavy Duty Throat microphone which has an Excellent anti-noise capability.

    The Polyurethane cable has been reinforced with Kevlar and designed with the extra jack for REMOTE PTT. It is discreet and can be worn with a helmet and mask if you are racing and wish to communicate with your crew back on land.

    The built in PTT button which is located close to the Throat Microphone and hangs around the chest area (this was put there in case you fall off the PWC and need to continue communicating) has a Large PTT operating area.

    Using these two models of the latest Cobra Waterproof Marine VHF Radios which are both 5 Watts Transmission power, distance certainly is not an issue - there is not a more powerful Marine VHF Radio on the market.

    There are Two Bundles available and are purchased as one kit per rider including the Radio.

    I will be interested to see if this throat microphone kit works with better VHF radios than the bundled models.

    DSC capable radios, for example.

    Not useful at speed - wind noise would kill voice clarity.

    Looks like a cheap radio - FRS?

    My expectation is that won't work worth a crap at high speed.

    Sure, you might be able to speak clearly, but in my experience HEARING anything clearly (even with two ear buds) over 45-50 mph is nearly impossible with the wind in your ears on a ski. This probably works okay for lower speeds, though.

    Alternate solution: slow down for 5 seconds, pull up to the other ski and speak with your mouth.
