Varicom

2-way communication + hearing protection


Activities done in noisy environments generally face a lot of problems with speech communication. Normal hearing protection can block out speech recognition and when the communication must be done over a wide range, it can be impractical. The use of 2-way radios can be useful but is often insufficient.

The Varicom© can provide a solution. The Varicom© consists of a custom made or universal earpiece with a built-in high profile miniature microphone and speaker. All the electronic parts are imbedded in the earpiece and thereby insulated against the environmental noise. This leads in an exceptional speech intelligibility.

The Varicom© proves to be not only a good communication system but also an excellent hearing protector.
