In the anime, they just communicate as if they were using the phone or a radio. The
main significance of this system is that both friend and enemy can talk to each
other as long as the MS are physically connected. (Also applies to ships as well).

You could say that the MS has a 'microphone+speaker' type system in the hands but
then how do ships pick up the sound through the hull and reply? May be the ships
have the system built-in to a particular section of the bridge as well...
