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:

The volume control controls the level-dependent function for ambient noise. There are 4 adjustment levels and 1 sleep mode. The idle mode is confirmed by a voice message. The volume is limited to 82 dB(A).

The equalizer sets the tone for the level-dependent feature for ambient noise. There are 4 levels of adjustment: Low, Normal, High and Very High.

Factory reset:
Resets all menu settings to the factory defaults. The setting must be confirmed by pressing [+] after the synthesized voice has said “confirm factory reset”.

Release time:
With the settings for the release time, the time is set after which the limiter for the level-dependent function opens after activation. It can be set in 2 stages: Fast and Slow.

The balance adjustment controls the volume balance between the right and left ear. There are 7 levels: Middle, Right / 1, Right / 2, Max. Right, Max. Left, Left / 2, Left / 1.

External input sensitivity:
The external input sensitivity setting controls the attenuation of the input signal applied to the input cable. There are 3 levels of adjustment: Low, Medium and High. If low is set, the gain of the applied input signal is low, and when is set high, the gain is large.

Warning signals:
The alert setting disables/enables the low battery and auto power-off alerts. Lowa battery warning is given when the last 2 hours are going in. Auto shut-off initiates after 2 hours without any input. When switched off, none of these warning signals can be heard.

Automatic power off:
The auto power-off setting disables/enables the auto power-off feature.

Ear-plug mode:
The ear plugs mode increases the volume of the ambient noise and the external input by about 6 dB. This mode may only be used if a properly inserted earplug is used under the headset. To turn on the earplug mode, press the [+] button for 5 seconds. Press and hold the key when the synthetic voice says “power off” and after a few seconds the message “plug mode” will be heard. The earplug mode turns off when the headset is turned off and then turned on again.

Standards and Approval:

  • PPE directive 89/686/EEC
  • EMC directive 2004/108/EC
  • MIL-STD-810F
  • EMC-MIL-STD-461F


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).

    Ordered two pairs of these. One I use as standalone set and another I mounted on my Team Wendy helmet with quick release adapters. I’ve contacted Reconbrothers for recommended adapters and they advised me to go for quick release ones for Team Wendy. Products arrived really fast and I could not be more happy with it., I highly recommend you purchase these sets from Reconbrothers if you live in EU. Best price and fast shipping!
