NAB 2012: Clear-Com To Unveil Latest Professional Headsets
Clear-Com will exhibit the latest additions to its line of professional headsets, the CC-300 and CC-400. The CC-300 and CC-400 offer extra comfort, better performance. and more flexibility for audio professionals who are constantly using intercoms during the long hours of production. These headsets are compatible with Clear-Com’s wide range of wired and wireless intercoms.
Personalized for Comfortable Fit
Wearing headsets day in and day out while communicating with other team members over the intercom can easily and quickly exhaust broadcast operators. The new Clear-Com CC-300 single-ear headset and CC-400 double-ear headset were designed to reduce fatigue and accommodate individual preferences by offering a clear and comfortable audio experience.
The CC-300 and CC-400 headsets’ microphone booms can be rotated 300 degrees, allowing the microphone to be worn on the right or left side of the head. Users can also make the headsets larger or smaller by using the slide adjustments on either side of the headband. In addition, the enclosed headphones have very soft padding and a slight rotation to provide a better fit for users.
Balanced for High Performance
The CC-300 and CC-400 headsets are equipped with hyper-cardioid dynamic microphones and high ambient noise attenuation headphones that deliver balanced audio performance to the user. The acoustic isolation capability significantly reduces external background noise and with a clear audio profile, including up to 20 kHz frequency response, the new headsets are made for professionals who demand high quality sound.
Flexibility for Operational Convenience
The CC-300 and CC-400 headset microphones can be turned on and off by moving the microphone boom. Users need only to pull the boom gently downwards to turn on the microphone and push the boom gently upwards to turn it off, in effect giving the users a quick and simple mute to their intercom system.
Interchangeable cabling is another major benefit of the CC-300 and CC-400 headsets. Both headsets come with a standard four-pin female connector, but users can easily change the cable and connector at the base of the headset by using a Phillips screwdriver in order to accommodate different connector types. The same process can be used to repair and replace a damaged cable on the fly.
“Busy production staff members need a headset that they can slip on and immediately feel the difference in fit and performance,” says Stephen Sandford, product manager, Clear-Com. “The Clear-Com CC-300 and CC-400 deliver by providing long-lasting comfort and high-quality audio, and can be used in conjunction with virtually all of our intercom solutions.”
