The Peltors. Better sound quality and if your using them for work, they have the comms input.Originally Posted by Tracker 23A
Sordins have comms input with 3.5mm jack too, are you sure you have supreme pro's. I'm asking because they are based on completely different technology as the basic model and have very different sound quality. They look the same, but have completely different internals.
I've only used peltors and haven't had any problems with them.
I tried the comtacs with the Finnish Nokia VIRVE radio attached to the comm port and it performed OK, though sound quality was quite bad.
Also, at least for me on the Peltors the rubber insulation of the wires would press against my head pretty bad if I didn't fold it to to run from the outside of the head band.
For me the sound quality of "my" Comtac's was excellent until moisture somehow managed to get inside one of the earphones, after that it was like having tinnitus when having them on, but they still worked. Perhaps your problem was with Virve rather rather than the Comtac's? Seems like there have been some major problems with Virve.Originally Posted by Carbine
Sorry for the Finnish quote for you non-Finnish understanding people out there.Virve petti Konginkankaalla

Viranomaisradioverkko Virve ei venynyt pelastushenkilökunnan tarpeisiin Konginkankaan suuronnettomuudessa maaliskuussa. Tämä on yksi havainto, jonka Onnettomuustutkintakeskus tekee tapauksesta julkaisemassaan väliraportissa.
- Virve toimi hyvin tehtävänannossa ja matkalla onnettomuuspaikalle. Kun onnettomuuspaikalle alkoi saapua lisää yksiköitä, radioliikenne puuroutui, eikä onnettomuuspaikalle ensiksi tullut palomestari saanut yhteyttä enää helposti kehenkään. Samoin kohteeseen matkalla olleella V15-yksikön esimiehellä oli vaikeuksia saada yhteyttä Äänekosken päivystävään palomestariin, raportissa todetaan.
I'm very satisfied with my Peltor!!!!!
Kekkonen, it could indeed just have been the VIRVE acting up. I only tried it very briefly, so perhaps I was in some unexplainable area with low coverage.

I use COMTAC IIs for work and shooting (and shooting at work), and find them to be of much better clarity than my buddies' Sordins.
I also have the TAC 6s, and they are fine for stand alone earpro. I got the COMTACs because of the dual U-173 jacks.
The COMTAC IIs may be the lower profile model than the original COMTACs, but they are huge copared to the sordins at the base of the earcup. Regardless, the fit fine under an ACH and PASGT, although with the latter, you damn near have to remove the leather headband to get them to fit.

Not all troops have suppressors and we had this discussion a while back. I'm just curious, because some LE guys have complained cause some have permanently lost their hearing, and I just want to know from the guys who do a lot of shooting each day.
I have extreme hearing loss in my left ear. I'm a left handed shooter and threw a few frags up close without any hearing protection. All of the jarheads I know (whom I served with) suffer from some sort of hearing loss, constant ringing or related problem.
