Adjustable Volume Control – The headset has a programmable and real-time adjustable user volume control. The Headset will remember the last setting at each power up for convenience.
Auto-Leveling Microphone – The headset automatically detects the voice of the user against the noise in the background. This allows the headset to have an automatic VOX (noise gate or squelch) that needs no adjustment when transitioning from areas of differing noise levels.
Automatic Loud Noise Suppression – The headset limits high impulse events such as gun shots from being transmitted to the user when using the Stereo Listen Thru.
Silicone Ruggedizers – Define positions or roles with these colorful ruggedizers. Fits over each ear dome to provide additional impact and abrasion resistance. Available in 14 standard colors (sold separately).
Extreme Environmental Design – Despite the rain, snow, mud and soot, the UHW505 performs when you need it most. Operates to -22°F/-30°C for extreme cold weather environments.
Hearing Protection – The headset conforms to many of the required hearing protection standards protecting the user from harmful noise.
In Headset Charging – The powered Headset has charging circuitry built in and is ready to be charged from multiple sources. These include the supplied AC wall adapter and DC charging options from a variety of sources including most cars, trucks, and aircraft. Refer to specification for charging voltages and power requirements.
Light Weight – Through the use of the latest weight saving technologies, Firecom is able to deliver a wireless headset that is lighter than many wired communication headsets.
Listen-Through Situational Awareness – The headset has stereo listen through microphones to give the user full situational awareness. The microphones are placed on the forward edge of the headset to give the user the perception of sounds in the front versus from the rear. The listen through has a programmable volume level and will limit all sounds to 82dB to the user.
Long Battery Life – With over 24 hours of battery life on DECT7 Headsets, the headsets work whenever the user needs it.
Multimode Auto Shutdown – For user convenience, the Headset is designed with multimode auto shutdown to extend the life of the batteries. All of the shutdowns have a verbal announcement and may be cancelled by the user by pressing any button.
Noise Cancelling Microphone – The microphone is a noise cancelling type designed to remove the background noise right at the mic element. This allows listeners to hear the person talking and not the background noise.
Radio PTT – The headset interfaces with any two-way portable radio using the wired AUX input or wireless DECT connection. When there is a wireless DECT connection, the PTT signal is passed to the wireless DECT7 Wireless Base Station and onto the Digital Intercom. Otherwise, the PTT signal is passed to the wired AUX input.
Two Stage Low Battery Alert – The powered headset has a two stage low battery alert system to notify the user when battery is nearly depleted. This allows the user to have adequate notice before loss of communications.
USB Programmable – The headset has a built in USB port to configure your headset with a Windows PC. Many of the features may be customized and saved from the program. Refer to the Firecom Headset Program for details.
