The COMTAC III and COMTAC IV both have Single and Dual Comm variants for streamline cable management. The downleads separate left and right audio traffic.

The 3M Peltor COMTAC series of headsets offer tactical communication in addition to hearing protection for today's modern warfighter. ComTac Tactical Communication Headsets are formulated and constructed specifically for use with firearms and ballistic combat helmets. These headsets feature external microphones with talk-thru capability to maintain situational awareness while still sustaining hearing protection. The ComTac III Advanced Communication Headset (ACH) has been standardized and fielded by various DOD agencies, specifically U.S. SOCOM and U.S. Army PEO Soldier.

  • Level-dependent surround sound for “talk-thru” function
  • External communications and stereo “talk-thru” are independent of each other
  • External communications and “talk-thru” are battery independent for Rx/Tx fail safe
  • Ambidextrous noise-canceling boom mic (can be mounted on either left or right side by operator) angled to minimize interference with peripheral vision
  • Adjustable sizing to fit different users
  • Meets Environmental Standard MIL-STD-810F; Meets EMI Standard MIL-STD-461E


Level Dependent Functionaility, commonly referred to as “talk-thru,” is a means of allowing safe audio sounds to bypass the individual hearing protection while still protecting against harmful noises. This can be accomplished with a proprietary digital audio circuit integrated into the headset. A microphone will receive sounds outside its headset and transmit those to a speaker inside the headset. This Level Dependent Digital Audio Circuit easily senses noise levels above the desired threshold and compresses each to a safe decibel level or amplifies weak sounds to an audible level.

Compression vs. Clipping 

3M has incorporated compression technology to remove the “clipping” effect heard in common talk-thru systems. “Clipping” can result in missing the first syllable of important commands. This technology resolves that issue and dramatically improves speech intelligibility.

Fail Safe 

ComTac External Communication (i.e. radio or intercom) and “talk thru” are completely independent of one another. In the unlikely event of electronic failure or battery depletion, external communications will continue to function.

Peltor Review / SRS
High quality product from SRS. Peltor is high end equipment, and if you are willing to spend the money, you won't be disappointed. I order with the gel-ear cups, with express shipping and arrived very quick with no hassle. Will definitely order from SRS again!

Sturdy reliable headset...
Sturdy reliable headset. The gel ear cups are a must. Also get the dual PTT switch instead of the dual comm headset so that it's easier to manage all the wires.
