Lynx Micro System G3 Headset

    The G3 headset is the latest Passive Noise Attenuation (PNR) version of the Micro System headset. The Micro System headset is a new generation of headset which forms the basis for an intercom system designed specifically for use in very high noise environments where wind noise may also be a problem.
    Each headset contains a specially developed electret noise cancelling microphone, an electronic speech processor and a rechargeable battery located in the headband. Connecting two headsets together forms an intercom providing communication for a minimum of fifty hours.
    The latest G3 features include a fifty percent increase in available headset volume and immunity to aircraft transponder and mobile telephone interference.
    The headset also now includes digital power management which protects the battery by putting the headset into a low power mode when no headset activity is detected. In addition, a switch is also provided on the headset to disable the battery if the headset is only used with a Powered Radio Interface and the battery function is not required.
    The headset includes a new patented internal structure and speaker technology. This unique internal design provides a significant improvement in passive noise attenuation and a reduction in the weight of the headset. The microphone is mounted in a rubber anti-shock holder and is protected by a foam wind shield that can be removed easily for cleaning or replacement.
    Micro System headsets can be connected to a radio via a range of interface units and are fully compatible with all available radio transceivers. Each headset battery can be recharged up to one thousand times, and does not suffer from Memory effect. The headset is noise attenuating and provides hearing protection in noise levels up to 110dB(A). All Lynx headsets are fitted with Silicone Gel ear seals and are fully adjustable.

    available headset colors: white, black, red, blue, gray, yellow, green and pink


 

 

 
Lynx Micro System G4 ANR Headset

    The Micro System G4 ANR/VCM headset is the latest digital Active Noise Reduction (ANR) version of the Micro System headset which also includes a digital Voice Controlled Microphone (VCM).
    The digital ANR electronics monitor the level of background noise inside the ear-cups and generate an equal volume of anti-noise which is opposite in phase; this effectively reduces the amount of low frequency background noise inside the ear-cups. The ANR function can be switched on or off using a selector switch on the right hand ear-cup. When the ANR function is switched off, the headset works as a normal Passive Noise Reduction (PNR) headset.
    The VCM electronics monitor the headset and disable the microphone when no voice signal is present. The microphone is re-enabled instantly when the VCM system detects speech. The VCM system uses digital technology to differentiate between speech and background noise/wind noise and adjusts automatically to changes in noise level. The VCM function can be switched on or off using a selector switch on the left-hand ear-cup. When the VCM function is switched off, the headset microphone remains active continuously.
    Each headset contains an intercom circuit and a rechargeable battery located in the headband. Connecting two headsets together forms an intercom providing communication for a minimum of fifty hours. The G4 features also include a fifty percent increase in available headset volume and immunity to aircraft transponder and mobile telephone interference.
    The headset also now includes digital power management which protects the battery by putting the headset into a low power mode when no headset activity is detected. In addition, a switch is provided on the headset to disable the battery if the headset is only used with a Powered Radio Interface and the battery function is not required.
    Micro System headsets can be connected to a radio via a range of interface units and are fully compatible with all available radio transceivers. Each headset battery can be recharged up to one thousand times, and does not suffer from Memory effect. The headset is noise attenuating and provides hearing protection in noise levels up to 110dB(A). All Lynx headsets are fitted with Silicone Gel ear seals and are fully adjustable.

Radio Interface Unit
The Lynx Radio Interface is a portable interface unit for connecting one or two Micro System headsets to a portable radio. The Radio Interface has been redesigned and now has interchangeable radio leads so that the Radio Interface can be purchased with the appropriate lead for whichever radio you wish to use. The interface now includes the electronics to connect music players and telephones and accepts the same audio and telephone leads as the Audio Adapter. It also includes new features such are radio-priority audio muting and an audible key tone which indicates when the PTT switches are used. The Radio Interface has a built-in PTT button as well as a socket to also allow the use of a Lynx remote PTT switch. Available with your choice of a straight or curly-cord cable to the radio. (the radio cable is included with the Radio-Interface unit)   instructions
price... $517.00


 
Powered Radio Interface

    The Powered Radio Interface provides the facility to connect a radio transceiver and a mobile telephone, music player, or recording equipment to two Micro System headsets. The interface can be used with either panel mount radios or portable radios.
    When the interface is used with two headsets, the equipment forms an installed intercom and radio system which can be powered from the batteries in the Micro System headsets or from an external 12v supply.
    The interface accepts interchangeable radio leads to connect to different radios. Each type of lead provides the correct physical connection for a particular radio and automatically configures the interface to provide the appropriate electronic operation. By selecting and connecting the correct radio lead, the interface can be used with any radio.
    When using Micro System headsets and an external power supply, the radio is powered via the interface and the headsets are also simultaneously trickle-charged. When powered from an external source the interface will supply the radio with a filtered and regulated power supply at 12, 11, 9 or 6 volts.
    Two selective PTT inputs are provided to control radio transmissions and to allow each headset to transmit independently. The interface provides an audible "Key Tone" in the headset which confirms when either PTT switch is pressed or released.
    In addition to the primary radio connection, the interface can be connected simultaneously to most modern audio devices including mobile telephones, music players and sound or video recording equipment.
    Two separate audio devices can be connected to the interface at any one time using the two Audio Sockets. For connection to professional recording devices, the interface provides audio output at both "Microphone Level" and "Line Level." All of the sound that can be heard in the headsets can be recorded using this method.
    During use, the interface monitors the radio and automatically reduces the volume of the audio inputs during radio transmission and reception. This automatic mute feature provides radio priority over any telephone or music input. A buffer delay holds the mute on during radio exchanges and pauses in radio reception.
    The interface is also fitted with an Auxiliary Audio Socket, Antenna Shroud and Internal Expansion slots to provide forward compatibility with future Lynx products. The interface may be mounted permanently using Velcro, screws, tube clips or cable tie saddles.
