OTTO NoizeBarrier® TAC


The NoizeBarrier TAC is the industries first fully modular tactical communications headset featuring industry-leading hearing protection and 360 degree 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.


With Single Comms variants hear radio audio in both ears, Dual Comms variants hear each radio in a the ear the downlead is connected to a radio with.



  • Dual comm speakers and proprietary NoizeBarrier® technology automatically adapt loud or impulse sounds to a safe level, while normal-level sounds, nearby conversation and radio communications are easily heard without clipping or shut-down of the situational awareness functionality.
  • Noise-canceling boom microphone has built-in active wind and noise reduction technology that virtually eliminates background noises and ensures understandable radio transmissions in loud environments.
  • 360-degree situational awareness microphones build into each earcup provide accurate sound localization to detect the direction of potential threats with near certainty
  • Easy-access volume controls on the left earcup adjust sound to five different levels.
  • Available with fixed or modular quick-disconnect cables to meet a wide variety of comms needs.
  • Selectable signal separation allows dual-comm users to separate audio into left, right or both ears.
