The customer Receiver Communication Earpiece (Custom-Fit) is designed behind the same principals as the Skeleton/IFB Earpiece but fills the entire ear as a solid mold. Sound is transmitted via small clear tubing attached to a receiver, usually worn underneath clothing. The Receiver Communication Earpiece can also be vented, or filtered, to compensate the plugged up feeling and allow outside sounds to be heard.
The Receiver Communication Earpiece can be made in three styles:
Fully Occluded – Solid – Complete isolation from the outside surroundings
Semi-Occluded – Filtered – Vented, and/or with an acoustic filter, or dampening filter, to allow for some outside surroundings into the ear
Non-Occluded – Open – Fully non-occluded to allow for all outside surroundings into the ear
Each style is available in silicone, vinyl or acrylic material*. Shoulder-mic harnesses, and any required radio adapters, are sold separately. The harness is available in 2.5mm, 3.5mm and 3.5mm threaded jack connections.
