SOME HEADSET MANUFACTURERS AND/OR DISTRIBUTORS WILL TELL YOU BOOM MICROPHONE HEADSETS DON'T WORK WITH GAS MASKS AND YOU SHOULD THEREFORE LEAN TOWARD AN IN-THE- EAR COMMS DEVICE OR THROAT MICROPHONE - DON'T BELIEVE IT. CARRYING FORWARD A TWO-DECADE TRADITION, WE CONTINUE TO DESIGN, DEVELOP AND MANUFACTURE CUSTOM BREATHING APPARATUS BOOM MICROPHONE ADAPTER KITS FOR MOST MAKES AND MODELS OF MASK SYSTEMS ON THE MARKET TODAY AS WELL AS LEGACY MODELS STILL FIELDED. OUR CUSTOM KITS ACOUSTICALLY MATE OUR BOOM MICROPHONE TO THE VOICEMITTER ON THE MASK VIA OUR UNIQUE COUPLING METHOD. INITIAL INSTALLATION TAKES 2-5 MINUTES AND REMAINS A PERMANENT PORTION OF THE MASK GOING FORWARD. WHEN THE MASK IS DONNED, THE OPERATOR SIMPLY PLUGS HIS HEADSET'S BOOM MIC INTO THE ADAPTER KIT COUPLER AND CAN BEGIN TO COMMUNICATE VIA OUR ACOUSTIC KIT AND HIS RADIO SYSTEM IMMEDIATELY. ACOUSTIC KITS PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF HEADSET/RADIO COMMUNICATIONS FOR MASKS WHEN THE MASK DOES NOT FEATURE AN INTERNAL DYNAMIC MICROPHONE.
