Transmit clearly and receive privately with the simple, versatile Throat Microphone Headset.
The Throat Microphone Headset helps you transmit clearly in situations where traditional audio accessories just won’t work. The throat microphone is highly versatile – designed to fit almost anyone, work with almost any protective equipment and perform in almost any situation, location or activity.
The Throat Mic converts vibrations from the larynx into audible transmissions. Because it does not rely on traditional sound waves traveling through the air, the throat mic can be worn with a wide variety of protective equipment and heavy clothing – including respirators, protective suits, gas masks, shrouds, helmets, heavy coats and more. Background noise is also virtually eliminated, allowing the Throat Mic to be used to transmit clearly in loud locations.
The Throat Mic allows you listen and transmit discreetly without removing your radio from its carrier. The Throat Microphone headset also helps enhance your safety and performance. The headset allows you to use your hands to protect yourself, operate tools, grasp railings, move items, and perform routine tasks while using your radio.
The Throat Microphone combines a conduction microphone and acoustic-tube earpiece into a single unit that fits comfortably around your neck. The Throat Microphone converts vibrations from the larynx into clear transmissions, and does not interfere with your gas mask, shroud or other protective gear. The integrated acoustic tube earpiece places your radio’s speaker in your ear for clear and private radio reception. The throat mic and earpiece are reversible allowing you to wear the headset comfortably with the earpiece in either ear. Transmit using the integrated push to talk button with clothing clip located on the wire connecting the headset to your radio.
The Throat Mic headset is an ideal choice for military, tactical, healthcare professionals, and recreational users requiring a highly versatile and simple headset. The Throat Microphone Headset is available in a wide variety of radio connectors and is compatible with hundreds of radios and other devices.
The Throat Microphone Headset offers an Auxiliary push to talk (PTT) port. Connect the remote PTT (sold separately) to the Aux PTT port on the main PTT. The cable is run inside or outside your clothing depending on your preference.
The Throat Microphone Headset is worn around your neck with the earpiece over your ear. Adjust the neck grip for optimal comfort. Clip the PTT button to the center of your shirt or other convenient location. The cable is run inside or outside your shirt depending on your preference.

With the built-in Eartube earpiece you have two in-ear attachments available. The ear can be completely blocked (with the mushroom bud) or you can hear your surroundings (with the open ear insert). https://earhugger.com/product/mushroom-bud/clear-mushroom-bud-ear-inserts-5-pack/ https://earhugger.com/product/open-ear-insert/open-ear-insert-medium-left-2-pack/ We include both with the headset.
The mic gain is controlled by the radio or other device that the throat mic is connected to. Most devices provide the ability to adjust microphone gain.
The Throat Microphone has an inline push to talk (PTT) button located approximately 30" from the radio connector on the main wire. Most Throat Microphone models have a 2.5mm remote PTT port on the side of the inline PTT. You can attach a remote PTT button with a 2.5mm plug to the Inline PTT here. When attached, both the main PTT and the remote PTT will activate the PTT function. The remote PTT is helpful for use cases where it is desirable to have an additional PTT button located in another location than your main PTT button.
Throat microphones are great for many uses. Originally designed for military and tactical applications, but also great for any situation where you must wear protective gear which makes it difficult or impossible to use a speaker microphone or lapel microphone effectively.
The throat microphone contains inductive microphones that make contact with the front of the throat. The inductive microphones convert sound vibrations in the larynx to audible communication for transmission.
