Can You Hear Me Now?

ceecoach_xtreme

“Okay, let go. Depth is fifteen feet.” “I can’t hear you.” “I SAID LET GO!” “What? Speak up!” If that sounds familiar, you’re the typical husband-and-wife crew trying to anchor on a windy afternoon. Trying to make yourself heard from 35 or 40ft away can be near-impossible in some situations, and even when it’s calm, it is easy to mishear a command or question that could have unfortunate consequences. That’s why devices like the Ceecoach Xtreme fall under the umbrella of “marriage-savers.” Made in Germany, the Xtreme is a compact, IP67-rated dustproof and waterproof Bluetooth communicator, equipped with earbuds and a microphone that cuts wind noise. The device can be kept in a jacket pocket or fastened to your sleeve, and it has a range of over 500 yards, making it useful for kayaking and paddleboarding too. $419. Ceecoach, ceecoach-us.com
