RTS Introduces Lightweight Headsets for Critical Communications

RTS has introduced the LH-Series headsets, a new generation of headsets for critical communications applications that require field-proven technology and long term wearing comfort.

RTS said the new headsets are the next generation of the PH-Series headsets. The LH-Series headset models are optimized for operation with all existing RTS intercoms.

Different connector type options (XLR, 4-/5-pin, male/female and 3.5 mm audio plug) ensure flexibility, allowing the headsets to be utilized in virtually any kind of application. The headsets excel in providing superior audio quality and intelligibility.

RTS said the new generation headsets offer a range of improvements for enhanced usability and durability. A new microphone boom design provides stronger rotation stops and the headband-to-glider joint has been made more robust. The rotator pins of the headsets have also been upgraded with heavy-duty stainless steel improving the feel of the ear cup’s rotation.

A pre-coiled overhead cord has been added to reduce the strain on the cord and prevent it from catching on other objects or touching the skin. An added yoke provides enhanced comfort by allowing ear cup movement in all directions. This reduces pressure points by distributing and balancing pressure over the entire ear.

A soft headband pad further improves wearing comfort. Both new models come with replaceable leatherette ear cushions including speaker protection cloth for added hygiene and durability. An acoustic limiter protects users against sudden increases in sound levels.
