The following is an TEA press release on the Invisio Bone Mic tactical communications headset / earpiece:

A report from Baghdad on Invisio Bone Mic Headset:

I live and work in the "Red Zone" of Baghdad, Iraq on a high threat
protective security detail. I began searching for a new headset after
a last minute change to our mission made me a Protective Officer’ on a
detail at one of the Iraqi government buildings, also located in the
"Red Zone". While ditching my rifle and Tac Vest for
the concealed gear of a PPO, my company issued three-wire surveillance
earpiece rig was pulled into pieces and rendered useless as the
clients began moving inside. The result was that I had to do the
detail with effective/improper commo in a less than hospitable
environment on a real close protection mission.

I recently got my…

Invisio Bone Mic tactical comms headset (tactical communications headset) and PTT (Push-to-Talk Switch a.k.a. Press-to-Talk Switch) and have been pleased by what a damn fine piece of equipment it is. I change from positions
working with clients as PPO in the nearly silent limousines, to riding
in the open gun trucks. The clarity and volume of this earpiece is
amazing. I now have to turn the volume down to less than 1/4 while
riding at 70+mph with the windows down. (Previously I couldn’t hear
much even at full volume)This rig is also much simpler to make quick
changes from Tac Vest to concealed gear when doing close protection
work indoors.

I was considering adding the custom ear mold (a.k.a. custom earmold) but the more I use this
rig, the more I’m pleased with the performance as it is! Sorry, but
it looks like your excellent product cheated you out of an additional

I’ve tried headsets from the major manufacturers and their products
were cheap, bulky and lacked the clarity and volume of the Invisio Bone Mic and did nothing to filter outside noise. I was also incensed
beyond words when this substandard equipment broke and I was informed
by the local dealer that there was no repair, only the sale of new
equipment. When I contacted TEA/SwatHeadsets I got an immediate
response and detailed information. My PTT switch was specifically
made to mount to my duty radio and shipped promptly. This attention
and service is invaluable when living/working in the "Red Zone" of
Baghdad Iraq. I’ve found the "Gold Standard" with the Invisio Bone Mic and your company. Thank you for such an excellent product and
