OVERVIEW

Police and SWAT team operations can be chaotic and demand completely reliable communication for coordinating actions, spreading information, and making rapid decisions. Gone are the day of large heavy muffs with the extraneous boom microphone that interfere with the helmet and add as much as 14 ounces to the operators already encumbered head. Today, SWAT communications starts with a headset system that weighs less than three ounces but provides the same–or more–capability than the circumaural headsets of yesteryear. Plain clothes police need to avoid drawing attention and as such need to conceal their communication equipment. The ability to communicate by whisper is also important for them, which is difficult with regular microphones. There are many solutions available to these professionals.

FAQ

Do you have a Test & Evaluation (T&E) Program for me to try the product before I buy??

Yes. We have a T&E program available to Law Enforcement Officers and Active-duty Military Personnel who would like to evaluate a system for use by their team or unit. Contact us using this form and indicate your interest in the T&E program in the message section. Please be sure to include as much information as possible about the intended usage of the system in order to best expedite your request.

What is an “in-ear microphone”??

Rather than adding yet more weight, snag hazard, and another piece of the headset that can get in the way, SILYNX eliminated the external microphone that you may know as boom mics, lapel mics, and speaker mics and replaced it with a microphone about the size of a pin. That microphone is integrated into stem of the Silynx HPEDs (Hearing Protection Enhancement Devices). That stem and the microphone sits in the ear canal of the user.

Does the Silynx in-ear microphone use bone conduction??

No. Silynx determined early in its design cycle that bone conduction is sub-optimal in a tactical environment because of its poor voice clarity when the operator is whispering. Silynx felt that solid voice clarity when whispering was an absolute requirement in the design of its products and opted design in technology that did not rely on bone conduction. Silynx calls this TRUE VOICE technology.

What’s the difference between in-ear and over-the-ear (ear muff) hearing protection??

From a functional standpoint there is very little difference between the two. Both effectively protect your hearing and provide the pass thru of ambient sound. The primary difference is in compatibility with eyewear, size, weight, and comfort. When using eyewear with ear muffs, you reduce protective quality of the ear muff, and risk hearing damage; in-ear hearing protection was designed to ensure there is no degradation of hearing protection when using eyewear. Bulky ear muffs take up considerably more space than in-ear headsets. Bulky ear muffs are considerably heavier than in-ear headsets. Bulky ear muffs tend to be uncomfortable, while in-ear headsets provide all day comfort.

What is HEAR-THRU??

Hear-thru allows you to maintain critical situational awareness, and to have face to face conversations without removing your hearing protection in all types of operational environments. Hear-thru is also known as electronically controlled hear-thru and sound localization. Users manually control the hear-thru volume level via assigned buttons on the product. Voice prompts indicate to the user when the system is set at either the lowest or the highest volume level. Silynx systems enhance the user’s natural hearing ability, allowing for awareness of ambient noises that would otherwise go unheard. Regardless of the hear-thru level that a user chooses at any given time, during impulse noise events the hear-thru system responds to the decibel increase, automatically and immediately compressing the noise until the decibels decrease back to safe levels.
