The Best - But Worth It?

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 26, 2012
This Tactical XP unit is likely the best electronic headset available for indoor shooting range uses where range commands and other voices must be understood. Ambient audio, active damping and flexible audio adjustments are superior to anything I've used to date.

The basic shells and NRR are the same as the other large 27NRR Peltor models, and external controls are identical to the Peltor Tactical Pro. Electronics of this Tactical XP unit are quite different, however. Ambient audio is clear with *no* background hiss. Effective damping of gunfire noise, always a hallmark of the better Peltor models, is particularly fast and effective with this one. Also, damping release time can be adjusted, so loud reverbrations can be minimized in ranges having poor acoustic design. I am less impressed with the other adjustments. 'Balance' might have some utility. But I have yet to discover what the 'Equalizer' function is supposed to do. There is minimal documentation enclosed with the unit. From the depths of the web I found a PDF brochure that provides some additional information. Peltor is now owned by 3M - yes, the same company that gives us PostIts - but the 3M website isn't much help.

A couple of curiosities that may be off-putting to some: Mine came with a *leather* headband (!), so the pretentious factor is right up there. Also, the shells are blue. Bright blue. The tactical crowd will not be impressed.

But the real negative of ths Tactical XP unit is its...
Would recommend: Yes
