WHAT SEPARATES THE UE COMM FROM OTHER INTERCOM HEADSETS?

Production professionals usually have to wear a big set of headphones. They’re heavy. They’re bulky. They’re not very comfortable. And when you have a lot of people on a party-line, you have to turn the headsets way up to be able to hear anything because the intelligibility is so low.

That’s what’s great about the UE COMM—it goes all the way into the second bend in the ear canal. It puts the sound right next to your eardrum so you can hear everybody clearly, even at low volumes. One of our main goals with the UE COMM was to design a headset that actually helps protect people’s hearing. I was recently at the Hip Hop Honors event, dropping off a UE COMM for one of the camera operators. Everyone was outside in the 95-degree heat, wearing these huge earmuffs, sweating like crazy. And the guy puts on this sleek headset. He’s wearing his hat. He’s comfortable. He hears better than everybody else. He’s not damaging his hearing. Everybody was talking about this headset.

HOW DOES THE UE COMM INTERFACE WITH DIFFERENT DEVICES?

 A common problem with traditional headsets is that they only have one connection type. We offer a wide range of adapters for the UE COMM so you can easily switch from one connection type to another. Switch from a belt pack to a walkie-talkie—you can even plug directly into your phone and take a phone call without having to take your headset off.

 We also make program insert cables, which split the signal so you can communicate on multiple party lines at the same time. We can even configure it so that the party line is in one ear and the walkie-talkies are in the other. And you have full control over both channels, so you can turn people up and down as needed.

 One of the best parts about the UE COMM is that it works for more than just party line communication. With the Bluetooth cable add on, you can listen to music on your morning run, talk on the phone during your commute, then switch to the adapter you need for work. You can even use it for playing video games in the green room. We want to make the UE COMM versatile enough to use in any situation. Not only is it the best-sounding solution, it also provides the best hearing projection and the most stylish design.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH THE UE COMM?

The UE COMM headset is delivered standard with our  UE 5 Pro in-ear monitors, which are equipped with dual-driver technology for class-leading sound quality. You can also upgrade the in-ear monitors to any of our other models, or even retrofit your personal pair of UE in-ear monitors with a UE COMM microphone.

ue comm with accessories The electret mic offers great noise cancelation. It’s very focused. They’re a little bit crisper and cleaner than dynamic mics. The only issue with the electret mic is that old systems only support dynamic mics. So, the electret mic needs a little bit of a power boost. Most of the new systems have settings for electret mics, but not all older systems. That’s why In-House Sound also offers an additional accessory, the Electret Power Box. It’s a tiny little box that you can hang on your belt to power the mic. (purchased separately)

The standard order also includes a four-pin female adapter, a five-pin male adapter, and a 3.5-millimeter TRRS adapter. We also have additional adapters for Motorola, Kenwood and Vertex devices available for purchase. Whether you’re using a belt pack, a walkie-talkie, a Push-to-Talk (PTT) system or even your phone, we’ve got you covered.
