TrueVoice™ is the most advanced noise cancellation technology in P25 radios. It is a standard feature with all KENWOOD Viking® radios and works with any accessory without the need for additional configuration. 

Having radio communications with clear audio can often be a matter of life or death. It is imperative that first responders can communicate even in the most challenging noise environments.

EFJohnson is confident you will agree that KENWOOD P25 radios with TrueVoice technology outperform all other P25 radios. Make the side-by-side test so you can hear the TrueVoice difference.
