Throat mics sense and absorb vibrations from the user’s throat via a sensor worn on the neck. These mics were initially developed for tactical operations because they provide touchless communication; however, they are now popular across several industries.
Unlike regular microphones, throat microphones pick up the user’s voice by placing the mic in close proximity to their throat. This allows the user to transmit in loud environments and still be heard clearly. Some throat mic models are designed for heavy-duty use, including features for enhanced transmission and adjustable bands for greater comfort.
Throat mics are most commonly used by personnel in the military, law enforcement, or emergency services. They are ideal for tactical and covert scenarios since they are capable of picking up even whisper-volume transmissions. For example, special forces use throat mics to communicate discreetly without giving away their location.
Throat mics are also popular with crane operators, people wearing hazmat suits, all-wheel-drive operators, amateur airsoft and paintball enthusiasts.
With health and safety regulations at the forefront due to the pandemic, throat mics are the perfect alternative to regular mics and headsets since having a mask over the user’s mouth can complicate communications.
Impact’s heavy-duty throat microphone includes dual throat transducers for clearer sound, an oversized PTT, ring-finger switch, and molded ear inserts. This microphone is equipped with anchored Kevlar ® reinforced coil cable and is fully submersible and chemical resistant.
