Referee headset for coaching referees

The challenge of coaching referees (from the sideline on the sports field) without headsets is that it limits you in effective communication and coaching of the referee. With a a referee headset an observer can coach and support the young soccer referees directly during the game. Coaching with AXIWI is not limited to halftime, before or after the game. This way the referee observer can give directly tips about positioning and running lines, from the side line. Because of this, the young and talented referee learns fast about how to position optimally. As a result; they will get more confidence and develop their skills faster. AXIWI is the wireless referee headset for observers and coaches in sports.

03-09-2020 I am using the AXIWI headset for both recreational and professional use. It is really comfortable to wear, especially during my afternoon runs. I love that I can listen to music and hear it when someone is ringing their bicycle bell behind me.
