High-threat tactical whisper-mic headset provides both hearing protection and situational awareness with hear-through communications. While the user's hearing is protected from concussion damage, ambient sound can be amplified so that you will hear a faint whisper or sounds of movement. The HTH also fits under tactical helmets and accommodates gas masks and goggles. The boom mic plugs into gas masks/SCBA voice emitter for improved comms when gas is deployed.

Military, Civil and Law Enforcement users may request samples for evaluation by visiting TEA's web site www.swatheadsets.com.
