People who work in noisy environments and need to hear each other would do well with intercom headsets. Not only can headsets facilitate person-to-person communication over an intercom, they can also provide hearing protection. This is especially important for people who work in noisy areas like ambulances, fire trucks, construction sites, or airplanes.

How Intercom Headsets Work

Intercom headsets are simple to use. They plug into your intercom system, which interfaces with a radio system. Motorcycle riders, racecar drivers, and airplane pilots all use intercom headsets. Others who benefit from them are event planners and retail personnel who work in large stores.

Intercom headsets should have a good noise reduction rating (NRR) of at least 24 decibels. (That will reduce ambient noise by 24 decibels). They should also have noise canceling microphones so that the person on the other end does not hear the background noise around you. Voice activation capability comes in handy when you need hands free communication, so you don't need your hands to push any buttons in order to talk.

Another important factor in choosing headsets is comfort. Lightweight, flexible headsets are now possible because of advanced materials used in manufacturing. Headsets are also growing stronger and resilient as technology advances. Before purchasing a headset, make sure the communication will be clear on your system and that the headset will be comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
