New 3M Peltor Electronic Earplugs Include Wireless Connectivity

Monitor Any 2-Way Radio or Remote Speaker-Mic with 3.5mm JackLevel dependent hearing protection and wireless connectivity

3M Peltor is now shipping an improved TEP-200 tactical electronic earplug designed for the military, SWAT teams, and law enforcement. Level dependent technology instantly provides hearing protection for harmful noises and also increases low sounds during quiet periods.

Wireless neckloop 3.5mm plugThe earpieces now have tiny antennas that allow audio to be received wirelessly using an optional neckloop. The TEP-LOOP-200 plugs into the 3.5mm jack on the remote speaker-microphone or any other audio source. The TEP-200 earplugs are receive-only. To transmit, the user would press the push-to-talk button and speak into the microphone. The TEP-200 is rated IP67 for submersibility and lasts up to 16 hours of continuous operation.

Ultrafit 23 dB NRR and 27 dB NRR Triple-C communications eartips are included. Optional 30 dB 370-1019-10 Skull Screw eartips are available for extreme noise hearing protection.

3M also introduced the LEP-200 designed for construction and industrial workers. Although it lacks the IP67 rugged rating, it offers the same functionality as the TEP-200. The original TEP-100 without wireless connectivity is also still available.

How To Choose a 3M Peltor COMTAC Tactical Headset For Military and SWAT Teams

Answer These 5 Questions to Select the Correct Headset

Communications for High Noise AreasSelecting the correct COMTAC tactical headset for your police SWAT team or military unit can be confusing. There are hundreds of choices and it can take a long time to research them. In order to make the right decision faster 3M Peltor developed a list of questions to guide you to the correct model.

Question 1:  Cover Your Ears or Select Hybrid that Uses Earplugs?Over the Ear or Earplug

Tactical electronic headsets that provide situational awareness have small microphones mounted on the earcups that instantly block harmful noise. The COMTAC III has the traditional earcups but now 3M offers the COMTAC IV with earplugs that provide additional comfort in hot environments. Both are designed to fit under a ballistic helmet.

Question 2: Band Style – How Will You Wear it? Headband, Neckband, and ARC

The COMTAC III is available in three different styles. The most popular is the headband, over-the-head style. Headband style is foldable when not in use and has been preferred by most military and law enforcement teams.

If you prefer to wear your headset behind-the-head, 3M provides a neckband version. *Neckband is only available with COMTAC III.

3M recently introduced a third configuration – COMTAC III ARC. Designed for the Ops-Core FAST Helmet, the mounting mechanism clips to the Accessory Rail Connector.

Question 3: Radio Communications? More than One?Single, Dual, or Split Audio Communications

Depending on your mission and the need for interoperability, COMTAC headsets can connect to one or two different 2-way radios. Single COMM terminates in a NATO wired U/174 quick-disconnect plug designed for the appropriate radio adapter needed. One two-way radio is supported.

If your agency or mission requires interoperability with teams using different two-way radios, a Dual COMM headset will allow you to connect two different radios to your headset.  Each COMTAC headset earcup will have a short cord with NATO wired U/174 plugs. Two adapters are required and you can talk on either or both radios using either PTT button.

A Dual COMM with split audio is also available for special military applications using a dual PTT adapter.

Question 4: Choose Available Color?OD green, coyote brown, black, foliage green Headsets

Most COMTAC III headsets are available in four different colors. The last two letters of the model number indicate the headset color.

SV indicates black and is the only difference between a COMTAC and a SWAT-TAC.

CY indicates coyote brown, GN is O.D. or olive drab green, and FG is a lighter foliage green. Foliage green is not available with COMTAC IV.

Depending on the model, some colors are special order.

Question 5: What Radio or Intercom Are You Connecting?FL5000-02 Series With NATO Wiring

To choose the correct adapter you need to know the radio manufacturer (Motorola, Kenwood, Harris) and the specific model ( APX 6000, XTS 5000, etc).

COMTAC headsets are only compatible with NATO wired adapters. The specific model number should have “-02” end the end (i.e. FL5063-02). It is not possible to modify the adapter if it is wrong.

Visit our 3M Peltor headset store for the best selection of 2-way radio hearing protection accessories. We also have all of the 3M NATO adapters online for easy ordering. Contact us if you need help by using the the form below.
