I got a chance to check out Tactical Command Industries new dual Push-To-Talk headset system. It solves a simple problem that most of us faced when we were downrange, running dual radios. This system has simplified the comm setup. It features a single color-coded PTT box that can accommodate dual radios. Basically there’s one wire coming from your headset into the box. At the box, you plug each of your radio feeds in, and use the corresponding PTT button to operate the radio. This new piece of kit eliminates the need to have 2 separate PTT switches. You can also still run a hand mike for command and control.
The actual headset is comfortable and seems to be well constructed. They also have some simple connection wires that allow an easy switch between all of the various radio connectors. TCI also offers a non-comm setup for use as hearing protection on the range. Since I’ve been through countless pairs of Peltor 6s’, I can’t wait to check these out. I’m hoping that they offer a longer life-cycle and more durability then the Peltors. They’re going to be sending a pair out for me to check out, so I’ll give you guys an update in the future.
