Point Source Audio’s Earset Microphone Hits the Bulls-eye

Law Enforcement Officers at Municipal Firing Range Extol Mic’s Compact Size and All-weather Performance

Petaluma, CA – Hearing protection is required for law enforcement officers at the Amarillo Shooting Complex in Texas, so when audio integrator Joe Bolin of Norris Audio Video was hired by the City of Amarillo, he turned to Point Source Audio’s low-profile waterproof earset microphones to deliver a hands-free solution that would not compromise hearing safety.

The low-profile, high-performance, all-weather mic fits comfortably under the training officers’ protective earmuffs. Paired with an AKG-brand wireless system the microphone is helping to improve safety and enhance the training experience for law enforcement personnel at the sprawling outdoor complex which features two ranges: one, primarily for civilians, is 400’ long and offers both rifle and pistol sections; the other is for law enforcement exclusively.

Law enforcement instructors previously used a bullhorn to communicate with the trainees during live firing events, so a hands-free wireless microphone system “made communication much more safe, easy and effective” according to Bolin.

Bolin chose the IP-57 waterproof rated CO-5W earset microphone from Point Source Audio because “we needed a small mic which wouldn’t create a gap for sound to penetrate the earmuff’s protective seal,” he said. “The CO-5W’s small footprint was an important consideration, as well as its high performance capability in an outdoor environment which might include sweat, rain and snow.”

The CO-5W earset model is one of several waterproof microphones from Point Source Audio that offer high performance with a low-profile and IP-57 waterproof rating to address outdoor use. The all-weather mics are available for purchase at a number of resellers and distributors worldwide.
