Which of the Peltor ComTacs have NIB capabilities:


NIB, or Natural Interaction Behaviour, is a technology designed to improve the sound quality of headphones by blocking out external noise. This feature is highlighted in the Peltor ComTac VI (6) and VII (7) headsets. This works by creating physical barriers between the speakers and your ears that block out unwanted sound. This prevents external noise from interfering with your music or other audio experiences.

Peltor hearing protection offers an excellent range of tactical communication headsets that provide superior sound quality, comfort, and safety. Whether you are out in the field or just leisurely enjoying a good book, these top-of-the-line headsets will keep you safe and secure while providing crystal-clear audio.

This technology works by creating an acoustic seal around the ear cups to help block out unwanted noise. These acoustic seals are specially tuned to reduce background noise while allowing in necessary sounds from your environment. Additionally, the design of the headphones ensures that they remain securely attached to your head even during active movements. This makes them ideal for scenarios such as shooting ranges where situational awareness is key.

The NIB technology also utilizes enhanced audio drivers to produce a more natural sound without any distortion or muffling. This allows you to hear every detail with greater clarity than ever before. With its built-in microphone, this headset also offers improved speech intelligibility so you can ensure that conversations stay clear and concise. And with its comfortable foam ear cups, this model is designed for maximum comfort on long days too.
