Product Focus – Headsets/Mics
Headset combines comfort, durability
The Slimline from Eartec is a midweight, comfortable, over-the-head style headset. The headset features an internal spring steel headband that can be adjusted to provide just the right amount of tension for each user. Extra-soft padding ensures that the headsets not only fit snugly but are a pleasure to wear. The headset can be fitted with either noise-canceling electret or dynamic microphone elements and are adaptable for use with wireless and wired intercom systems.
Microphone offers multiple formats
Midian Electronics’ UED-1B mic is a multiformat microphone for dialing, ANI, emergency ANI, decode and transpond. The microphone can encode and decode in touch-tone, five-tone, two-tone, and pulse-tone. The microphone offers a backlit keypad with 10 memory dials, last-number redial and DTMF hot dialing. Versions are also available for burst tone and CTCSS.

Personal role radio stops media monitoring
Media monitoring of SWAT team communications can be eliminated with the Davies/Marconi PRR headset and radio from Television Equipment Associates. These ruggedized mil-spec radios operate spread-spectrum at 2.4GHz and have 256 channels and an operating range of 500 meters (rural terrain with transmission through up to three floors urban terrain). An accompanying single-phone, boom-arm headset with full peripheral hearing has an electret noise-canceling mic with whisper speech.
Headset features surround sound
The Peltor Swat-tac headset combines current electronics technology and hearing protection for communications applications requiring the use of riot or ballistic helmets. The headset features slim-line earcups, covert black color with no shiny parts, a flexible gooseneck microphone, palm or finger radio PTT-activated patchcords for use on existing or new two-way radios, and Peltor’s surround-sound technology. The two microphones on the outside of the cups allow the user omni-directional hearing at all times.
System offers full duplex communications
The CT-DECT communications system from CeoTronics provides the functionality of cable-bound communication on a wireless digital platform. Multiple people can now simultaneously speak and listen (full duplex). The system uses DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) standard, so every word is automatically encrypted. The system is structured in groups of three: one base headset and two mobile units. The number of participants and the radius can be increased by including more base headsets. The whole system automatically configures itself after a new participant has joined and automatically searches for the right channel.
Bone-mic headset suits full-time SWAT teams
The Invisio bone-mic headset from Television Equipment Associates is available either as a generic (one size fits all) version, or it can be built into your custom earmold. While most tactical users select the generic version, full-time SWAT teams have selected this headset because they expect to wear the bone mic 40 to 50 hours per week.
