Bose Headset

SoundComm B30 Headset

The SoundComm B30 Headset provides enhanced communication and comfort for users of typical broadcast, live event and sports intercom systems. It is engineered for significantly improved comfort, audio and noise reduction compared to conventional passive headsets. While Bose has a long history of employing active noise cancellation in its aviation headsets, the introduction of the SoundComm B30 Headset with active noise cancellation represents a breakthrough to the broadcast, live event, and sports intercom markets, where noise is pervasive and communication and comfort are critical.

Primary customers:

Users of wired and wireless intercommunication systems, such as those typically used by NFL football coaches and support staff.

Feature Function Benefit
Acoustic NoiseCancelling® technology Unwanted noise is identified, and a correction signal is created to cancel the unwanted noise. Bose noise reduction technology fades background distractions. It reduceslow-frequency noise and allows users to listen to communications audio atlower, more comfortable levels.
Active equalization Electronic circuitry shapes and equalizes incoming audio signals. Clean, full sound quality that enhances intelligibility of intercom audio and clarity.
Dedicated left and right earcups Angled earcups designed to be worn on designated left or right ears. Provides a more stable and comfortable fit.
Dynamic microphone Water-resistant150 ohm noise cancelling dynamic microphone provides clear communication with reduced background noise. Reduces background noise in loud environments, enabling improved communications and intelligibility.
Power LED and battery-life indicators Indicates when the noise reduction is turned on. Indicates the remaining hours of batterylife (green: healthy batteries; red slow flash: 10 hours remain; red quickflash: less than 2.5 hours remain). Provides users with a real-time battery-life indication, taking the guesswork out ofwhen to replace batteries.Users should expect no less than 48 hours of continuous use with fresh alkalinebatteries for the dual-ear versions, and 56 hours for the single-ear version.
Control module Design houses two AA alkaline batteries, battery-status LED, power switch and power management circuitry. Cables are routed via one end of the module for easystowage in pockets or by attaching to intercom belt packs. The module fits comfortably in user’s hand or pocket, or attaches easily to intercom belt packs to put all controls within easy reach.
