Product Description

Marriage Saver Headsets are just like cordless telephones – you can both talk & hear at the same time.  Once turned ON, they are full-time so you don’t need to push any buttons to talk making them HANDS-FREE.  And since the batteries are self-contained, there are no external wires or “belt-packs”.  Uses include:

  • Anchoring – Fore Deck to Helm
  • Rigging – Deck to Mast Head
  • Navigation – Nav Station to Helm
  • Repairs – Engine room to Helm
No More Yelling!   No More Anchor Dance!!
We like to call them the Marriage Savers!!!

Read a great article praising our headsets, “Anchoring for Couples“.

These headsets operate on a 9V battery snapped into the Right-side ear-set, so note that you will only hear from the Left.  The volume selector offers Lo or Hi.  The headband is adjustable for your comfort.  The effective range is 50 to 70 feet although they are rated at 300 feet.  For best reception, the antenna should be fully extended but may be tucked in to prevent contact with boat paraphernalia such as fore-stay or spreaders, that may want to knock the headsets off.

The microphone has a foam wind guard to reduce wind interference.  Speak in a normal tone with the mouth piece about 2″ (5cm) from your mouth and your conversation will be one to one as though you are facing each other in the cockpit.

If you are near a radio tower, you may have some musical accompaniment, but your conversation will still be clear.  Block Island, RI has notoriously poor reception due to radio interference.  The headsets can only be used in pairs.  Multiple pairs in close proximity will produce feedback.

30-Day Replace/Refund Policy:

If you are dissatisfied with your headsets for ANY reason; return them to us with proof-of-purchase within 30 days and we’ll refund the purchase price of the headsets or replace them with a tested pair.

    The price is right, but we get a lot of noise over both headsets. We have changed batteries; cut off our iphones. They tend to work best when the boat is not running. We are looking for something better.

      Hi John
      The noise you describe is probably from a high-output alternator or fridge compressor. Unfortunately the Mariner 500 headsets are susceptible to other onboard appliances and occasionally to nearby radio stations. In most cases, conversation is still viable in spite of this and at $70.00 this is what makes them such a great value for most people. If the sound quality is not acceptable, they can be returned for a full refund within 30 days.
      The other alternative is to return them for full value towards 2 of our new “My Team Talks” Bluetooth Headsets which have a range of 900 meters. These are superior to anything else available. Let me know what works best for you

    We added the headphones to our supplies this summer. We were generally happy with them. We did get a lot of wind noise, but were able to comnicate over the wind. I felt they needed a back head strap and added a string to help keep them on my head as I was scrambling around on deck.
