SS03-10 Sea-Phone Hydrophone
The SS03-10 Sea-Phone has been replaced by the SQ26-H1B hydrophone.
The following is retained for reference.
The SS03-10 Sea-Phone is a general purpose hydrophone ideal for whale watching and full audio-band signal detection. It can also be used as a contact microphone or low cost geophone. The Sea-Phone is a great kayaking hydrophone and a wonderful recreational boating accessory. As mentioned in the new gear section of the Nov/Dec 2006 issue of Paddler magazine, the SS03-10 Sea-Phone "opens up the world beneath your hull."
