NoizeBarrier TAC: Revolutionising Soldier Communication.

Introducing the NoizeBarrier TAC, a revolutionary communications headset that sets a new standard for modern soldier communication and situational awareness. Crafted through collaboration with tactical operators, it prioritises hearing protection while empowering seamless decision-making in challenging environments.


Optimised Comfort and Fit:

Crafted to meet the rigorous demands of contemporary soldiers, the NoizeBarrier TAC features a meticulously redesigned cup size, tailored to fit under the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH). A 12% reduction in weight enhances comfort during prolonged use, with a lighter and softer headband ensuring maximum comfort in tactical operations.

Unparalleled Auditory Experience:

2023 design enhancements contribute to an unmatched auditory experience. The dual-coil speakers, complemented by proprietary NoizeBarrier technology, dynamically adapt to loud or impulse sounds, maintaining situational awareness without compromising communication clarity.

Advanced Microphone Technology:

Equipped with a noise-canceling boom microphone featuring built-in active wind and noise reduction technology, the NoizeBarrier TAC ensures clear radio transmissions even in chaotic environments. 360-degree situational awareness microphones enhance sound localisation, crucial for threat detection.

Customisation and Adaptability:

User customisability is key. Easy-access volume controls offer five sound levels, while modular design and quick-disconnect cables ensure adaptability to diverse communication needs. Ultra-soft Comply foam ear cushions reduce unsafe noise levels and are easily replaceable in the field.

Extended Operation and Durability:

The NoizeBarrier TAC extends talk time with efficient use of two AAA lithium-ion batteries, providing up to 100 hours of operation. Meeting MIL-STD-810G specifications and achieving IP68 standard, it withstands full immersion in water while maintaining outstanding communications.
