The frequency controls are backlit for ease of use and a loudspeaker is built in. Headphones can also be attached. This rugged unit is small enough to fit in a pocket yet sensitive enough to start your bat detecting with accuracy.

Heterodyne detectors typically have a headphone socket and often have a line-out socket for recording calls.
