The hearing protectors feature external microphones for environmental listening (aka Talk-Through) capability, so operators can maintain auditory situational awareness while protecting their hearing. With more than 65 years of experience, the 3M™ PELTOR™ Brand promises quality communication solutions that help provide an excellent balance of performance and protection. The advanced engineering and technology inherent with the 3M™ PELTOR™ Brand fits with the high standard of quality and innovation of a continuously evolving range of product solutions that you, our customers, come to expect from 3M.
3M™ PELTOR™ ComTac™ VI NIB Headset Advanced hearing protection and close range communications in noise
The new ComTac™ VI NIB helps protect your hearing, improve situational awareness and communications in noisy environments. With new technologies such as
NIB - Natural Interaction Behaviour and MAP - Mission Audio Profiles, the ComTac VI is packed with new advanced features that helps improve soldier efficiency
Hear and protect your hearing
Exposure to hazardous noise is one of the most common causes of hearing impairment. How harmful the noise is depends on the exposure time in combination with the sound level. Many military operations are conducted in high levels of hazardous noise. Unprotected exposures often lead to life-long, noise induced hearing loss. With advanced hearing protection, there is no need to choose between hearing and hearing protection.
Auditory situational awareness and leveldependent functionality
Environmental Listening is a means of allowing safe audio sounds to bypass the individual hearing protection while still helping protecting against harmful noises. This is accomplished with a proprietary digital audio circuit integrated into the headset. A microphone receives the sounds outside the headset and transmits them to a speaker inside the headset. The Level-Dependent digital audio circuit senses noise levels above the desired threshhold and compresses them to a safe decibel level (82dB A) or amplifies softer sounds to an audible level.
New advanced level dependent function for ambient listening
The environmental microphones allow the users to listen to ambient sounds and communicate in lower noise environments, all while benefiting from hearing protection for sudden loud sounds. The ComTac™ VI introduces the new 3M™ PELTOR™ MAP - Mission Audio Profiles, advanced settings for ambient listening, allowing you to adapt and optimize the environmental listening function to different scenarios.
Advanced mode 1 - (Comfort) For comfort in a very noisy environment. Advanced mode 2 - (Conversation) For natural, face-to-face communications. Advanced mode 3 - (Patrol) For high situational awareness when walking in a low noise environment. Advanced mode 4 - (Observation) For powerful situational awareness in a quiet environment. MAP Mission Audio Profiles 5 NIB technology for close rang.
NIB technology for close range communication in high noise environments
The NIB enables natural face to face communication in noisy environments, without the use of an external communications radio, minimizing the effects of loud noise or hearing protection. This system is easy to use, just upproach to the person you wish to talk to. NIB allows the user to communicate with people who are in close range to each other.
