Unlike normal low-cost computer speakers, Zetron’s speakers are specifically designed for mission critical applications where reliability, ease of use, and voice fidelity are important.
Premium grade components are housed in an attractive yet rugged enclosure to optimize the reproduction of two-way radio voice-band communication. An individual volume control eliminates the confusion caused by the stereo balance control found on standard multimedia computer speakers. A high visibility call indication LED on the speaker instantly identifies the source of audio.
Whichever option you choose you can be confident that the Zetron Communications microphone has been designed for mission-critical radio communications. Unlike public address or paging microphones this mike has been designed from the ground up for dispatch center use. The stable base with highly reliable switches is matched with your choice of gooseneck and capsule combination.
