NoizeBarrier® TAC

The NoizeBarrier® TAC is the industry’s first fully modular tactical communications headset featuring industry-leading hearing protection and 360˚ advanced situational awareness to enhance decision making in a tactical environment.

OTTO has collaborated with tactical operators to design and engineer a headset that meets the demands of today’s modern soldier. The result is a headset that improves the ability to hear important conversations or commands in areas with high-background and potentially harmful impulse noises. 

New Design

  • Reduced cup size designed to fit under an Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH), IHPS and other mid/full cut helmets
  • Over 12% lighter than previous models
  • Lighter and softer headband to provide maximum comfort over long periods of usage


The NoizeBarrier® TAC headset delivers an unparalleled soundscape experience by producing crystal clear radio communications and has an external microphone that allows for a state of the art talk-through experience.
