Mission Audio Profiles (MAPS):
The ComTac™ VI introduces the new 3M™ PELTOR™ MAP – Mission
Audio Profiles, advanced settings for ambient listening, allowing you
to adapt and optimize the environmental listening function to different

Natural Interaction Behavior (NIB):
The NIB enables natural face to face communication in noisy environments, without the
use of an external communications radio, minimizing the effects of loud noise or hearing
protection. This system is easy to use, just approach to the person you wish to talk to.
NIB allows the user to communicate with people who are in close range to each other.

In The Box:

  • 1x ComTac VI NIB
  • 1x User Manual
  • 2x AAA Batteries


Dynamic Microphone:
Detachable adjustable microphone either with or without J11 PELTOR™ wired cable for PTT connection to a radio system. Microphone is an upgraded version since February 2019 with improved ultra noise canceling. It is also waterproof (up to 6 m depth for 30 min) and has protection against dust (IP68).

Optional J11 Downlead:
The J11 cable allows the PELTOR™ headset to be connected to an external PELTOR™ wired PTT (Push-To-Talk) system which on it’s own can be connected to a radio system (PELTOR J11 = U174 U = Nexus TP-120).

Optional Hygienic Gel Set:
Extremely soft-fitting ear pads, filled with silicone gel. Cooling effect prevents perspiration. Very suitable for eyeglass wearers. Fits all 3M Peltor headsets.

Adjustment Capabilities:

Ambient / Environmental listening mode:
The ambient / environmental noise listening mode is available in Classic and Advanced modes. The Classic mode enables volume adjustment in four steps by increasing or decreasing the sound level for listening to ambient / environmental noises. Advanced mode includes four preset settings that are optimized for different sound profiles.

Selection of the battery type used in the headset, alkaline or rechargeable.

Wireless input:
It is intended to adjust the wireless input and sensitivity so that it fits the connected neck loop. Off / Low / Medium / High are available.

Wired input:
Adjust cable input and sensitivity to communicate with the connected radio. Select Low / High.

The balance setting controls the volume balance between the right and left ears. There are seven setting levels: Center (Center), Left 1 (Left 1), Left 2 (Left 2), Max left (Maximum Left), Max right (Maximum Right), Right 2 (Right 2), Right 1 (Right 1 ).

Automatic power off:
The automatic shutdown setting disables / enables the automatic shutdown function.

Warning signals:
The warning signals “low battery” and “automatic power off” (automatic switch-off) are deactivated / activated. When switched off, none of these warning signals can be heard.

NIB frequency:
The appropriate frequency band can be selected via this menu item. For North America, Australia and New Zealand, the frequency for NIB is 915 MHz. For Europe, the frequency for NIB is 864 MHz.

NIB modes:

  • NIB VOX ON: In this mode, the voice activates NIB radio transmission. By pressing the PTT button in VOX ON mode, communication is also possible in quiet environments, thus “forcing” the NIB to spark. If the headset works in an environment with changing volume, ambient noise can activate NIB VOX. In this situation, NIB PTT ON should be used.
  • NIB PTT ON: In this mode, the PTT button must be pressed for transmission.
  • NIB OFF: This mode turns off NIB transmission. With NIB OFF, no radio signal is emitted by the NIB radio.


Standards and Approval:

  • PPE Regulation 2016/425
  • EMC Directive 2014/30/EU
  • ROHS Directive 2011/65/EU
  • Radio Directive 2014/30/EU
  • RED Directive 2014/53/EU T
  • MIL-STD-810G
  • EMC-MIL-STD-461G


Meaning SNR (Signal Number Rating)
The SNR is an average passive reduction provided over different frequencies. Usually measured going from 125 Hertz up to 8000 Hertz. An example: Your ear protection offers 25 Decibels (dB) and you’re in an environment with 100 dB, underneath the ear protection you will experience 75 dB (100 dB – 25 dB = 75 dB).
