COMTAC III ACH Headset – Horizontal Head Frame

The COMTAC III ACH headset is the 3rd generation of COMTAC communications headset. It's vertical framed counterpart was chosen by US ARMY PEO Soldier and USCOCOM for fielding in the mid 2000s.

This ACH single comm model features a horizontal steel frame design with ear cups combing ambient amplification, electronic hearing protection and two way radio RX/TX all in one package. The COMTAC III is available in Olive Drab, Coyote and Black colored ear cups

The COMTAC III ACH features an ambidextrous boom microphone. This allows for an un-obstructed cheek weld for both right and left handed trigger pullers. This photo depicts the back side of the headset's left ear cup. The 2 pin female opening shown in the photograph (black circle) depicts where the 2 pin male plug of the boom microphone connects. Optional ear cup gel pads (as depicted in the photo) are also available for purchase

The COMTAC III ACH headset requires two AAA alkaline or lithium batteries (one installed in each ear cup) to power the ambient microphones. Defective or drained batteries have no impact on the headset's ability to TX and RX

Developed and designed in the Spring of 2012 at the request and subsequent assistance of operators from US Air Force Special Operations. Employing mid-cut helmets, ARC rail mounted headsets were not an option and they did not want to deal with a new helmet padding system to accommodate a vertical framed headset being used under the helmet. We were asked to develop a 3 way adjustable strap that would secure the headset to the head and fit a 95 percentile user base wearing a horizontal framed version of the headset

We refer to this portion as the "blotter pad". When properly positioned about the head, this piece is located on the crown of the skull

The rear portion of the 3 way adjustable strap features a D ring that allows for 3 total inches of adjustment both upward and downward

This photo depicts one of the two adjustable straps that go over the top outside edge of both COMTAC headset ear cups - both straps can also be adjusted upward or downward a total of 3 inches to ensure a secure fit when worn

The COMTAC III ACH headset features an over-molded 4 conductor headset inline interface connector. This connector assembly is compatible with a number of Atlantic Signal single comm push-to-talks
