3M™ PELTOR™ ComTac™ V has Omni-directional microphones and high fidelity
speakers that are optimized to transmit voice communication and can
pick up sounds with great sensitivity with an excellent signal-to-noise
ratio for clear and accurate sound replication. The result is a more
natural sounding headset with unmatched sound clarity.
3M has replaced the leather headband, for a more modern rubberized band
that is easy to remove if the user wants to convert to ARC adapters (or
convert back to a headband). This headband has increased environmental
resistance to heavy maritime environments.
3M has updated the software to allow users to easily access the audio
customization features the ComTac platform offers, such as:
Adjusts the environmental listening function volume balance between the
left and right speaker giving the operator the ability to prioritize
audio or adjust to their own personal preference
The release time setting adjusts the time before the limiter opens after
activation. The default setting is optimized for combat operations. The
extended delays may be more suitable for in-door fire arms training
In applications where double hearing protection is required, the volume
boost function, (aka: ear-plug mode) increases the volumes of ambient
sound and the external input by about 6dB. It is to be used only when a
properly fitted ear-plug is used under the headset.
CT5’s equalizer function further adjusts the preset frequency setting – which has been optimized
