The Bluetooth Covert Earpiece is designed to discreetly sit inside the ear and enable the wearer to hear what is being said to them from their connected mobile phone or other bluetooth connected audio device. Designed for two-way communication.
Used by surveillance professionals, lecturers and sometimes actors for live performances, the Covert Bluetooth Earpiece is the ideal solution where the user needs to discreetly listen to audio, but where earphones or a headset would be inappropriate.
The tiny earpiece is effectively a wireless earphone speaker that is very small and can be inserted into the wearers ear canal so even when viewed from the side, there will be no visible sign that the earpiece is in use. The Bluetooth Dongle has an induction neck loop that can transmit the audio received into the Bluetooth Dongle to the earpiece wirelessly. This model has an upgraded 4 watt transmiter providing much richer and more consistent audio. The bluetooth unit has an inbuilt microphone enabling two-way communication. This device is therefore ideally suited to covert surveillance operations where discreet communication is required.
The Bluetooth Dongle can be paired using Bluetooth radio frequency to another bluetooth audio device, such as a mobile phone. All this means that someone can call and talk to the earpiece wearer without any physical phone attachment and with the need for the phone to be in view. Some MP3 players now have bluetooth facility which means for example that recorded audio can also be wirelessly sent to the Covert Earpiece wearer in a totally discreet manner, an ideal solution for lecturers and those making length speeches who require an aid/backup to the process.
No special connectors are required to link up the device with another bluetooth audio unit, which means that swapping between different compatible devices is made simple and is a matter of pairing the bluetooth radio connection.
Is any part of the earpiece visible from the outside when it is pushed into the ear canal?
The unit is very small and can be fitted deep enough into the ear canal so that it is not obvious and visible unless somebody looks directly down the wearers ear.
Can the earpiece connect to audio devices that do not have a bluetooth connection capability?
No, unfortunately this particular earpiece neck loop is designed only to pair with devices with bluetooth transmission protocol.
Can the earpiece receive audio feeds from more than one bluetooth audio device at any one time?
No, unfortunately as with most bluetooth devices, a live transmitting connection can only work with one device at any one time.
Does the phone or other connected bluetooth audio device have to be on the person of the wearer of the earpiece?
As long as the audio bluetooth connected device is within bluetooth range 9up to 10 metres, then it does not need to be actually on the earpiece wearer’s person, however, the nearer that the device is to the dongle, the better the audio feed will be.
