Clear-Com has launched the CC-70 Headset, a premium lightweight wrap-around dual ear headset that can be worn under a helmet, hard-hat or personal protective equipment. This new headset offering is an ideal option for professionals required to wear protective headwear in compliance with increasingly stringent safety regulations, or for people who simply prefer a wrap-around headset configuration.
Clear-Com’s VP of Product of Management, Simon Browne, said, “Clear audio communication has long been a challenge for those required to wear protective headgear, from carpenters and electricians on live event sets to industrial or military personnel operating in dangerous environments. The CC-70 neatly solves this problem with audio clarity and comfort while providing an appealing alternative to production professionals and on-screen presenters who prefer wrap-around headset styles.”
The headset structure of the CC-70 runs behind the neck and over the ears, finishing with the mic boom near the mouth, making it compatible with protective headwear. Audio is delivered through comfortable and flexible noise-attenuating, in-ear buds; users can either wear a single in-ear bud to listen to channel communications and still be aware of ambient conversation, or in louder environments users can wear both in-ear buds to concentrate fully on headset communication.
The CC-70’s extensive dynamic range allows users to hear a full spectrum of audio, without the excessive noise and signal distortion that can lead to aural fatigue. Weighing an incredible 2oz, the headset is lightweight and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
In addition, since the CC-70 headset wraps around the back of the neck, there is no interference with the user’s hair, which makes it an ideal solution for on-screen presenters in noisy environments.
The CC-70 utilizes a 4-pin female connector which can be used with a variety of Clear-Com devices including FreeSpeak II, FreeSpeak Edge, HelixNet beltpacks and V-Series Iris panels and more. The CC-70 headset is currently scheduled to ship worldwide in Q4 2020.
