The ProPhonic TC-1000™ is the first telecommunications earset to combine superior two-way sound quality in one custom-molded earphone. Originally designed in 1998 to deliver clear two-way speech communications on the noisy trading floors of the Chicago Board of Trade, the TC-1000 is now used by stage directors, lighting techs and directors, and other backstage production personnel. The TC-1000 has also been tested and approved by NASA for use on the International Space Station.
The TC-1000 consists of a lightweight, noise-canceling microphone mounted on a custom molded earphone. A high fidelity micro-transducer is completely housed within the earphones to provide maximum isolation from ambient noise. The ear-mounted swivel microphone can be moved both vertically and horizontally for precise placement and maximum noise reduction. The entire microphone/earphone assembly weighs less than a half-ounce and the custom-fit earphone stays securely in place, so the TC-1000 can be worn comfortably all day.
The modular design of the TC-1000 can be used for cellular phones, desk phones or standard two-way radios by simply changing to the appropriate interface box. Contact Sensaphonics for details.
Designed as the first true full-isolation interruptible foldback (IFB) earphones for broadcasting and teleprompting, the ProPhonic 321™ provides outstanding performance for both crew and on-air talent. Unlike traditional IFB earphones, the custom-molded ProPhonic 321 places a micro-transducer directly within the ear canal, providing 26 dB of isolation from external sounds so that the critical earphones communications can be heard and understood in even the noisiest environments without – raising the volume.
Cosmetically, the miniature design of the ProPhonic 321 completely disappears into the ear, connecting to the IFB monitor system via a near-invisible Teflon-coated wire connected directly to the earphones. Because its soft gel silicone material is custom-molded by a Sensaphonics audiologist, the ProPhonic 321 is incredibly comfortable, even during prolonged use. Sound quality is clean and clear, designed for high intelligibility and low-distortion.
The ProPhonic 321 is available in binaural (dual earphones) and monaural (single ear) designs.
