• Pliant Technologies' SmartBoom Headsets

    Pliant Technologies’ line of SmartBoom LITE and SmartBoom PRO headsets reportedly offer "comfort, durability, and outstanding audio performance for professionals that require the best equipment in demanding environments". The line of communications headsets includes the SmartBoom, an easily accessible flip up microphone feature that acts as an on/off switch for quick and convenient mic control, which can help keep unwanted noise and distractions to a minimum.

    Featuring a single-ear lightweight design, the SmartBoom LITE Headset (PHS-SB11L) offers enhanced voice-optimized dynamic or electret microphone options, a "low-distortion" speaker, and a foam ear pad for added stability and comfort. The SmartBoom LITE is a versatile option for challenging applications where comfort, dependability, and intelligibility are crucial, says the company.

    SmartBoom PRO headsets, offered in both single (PHS-SB110) and dual-ear (PHS-SB210) variations, are available in a range of terminations and provide high ambient noise reduction and "high-quality, clear audio". SmartBoom PRO headsets also feature a collapsible earpiece design with field-replaceable cable, windscreens, and padding for the ear, headband, and temple.

    “Our range of SmartBoom headsets provides an instant upgrade for any existing intercom system,” says Gary Rosen, Vice President of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “The SmartBoom line has recently been expanded to include electret versions as well as versions for use with MicroCom M and MicroCom XR beltpacks, the latest intercom offerings from Pliant Technologies. This specifically designed headset line optimizes voice communication and comfort to ensure that users can communicate messages and hear instructions clearly.”

    Y-cables, looping audio signals through

    This article will explain loop-though connections and "y-cables" for analog audio signals.

    To obtain one or more copies of a signal (for example, to distribute the signal from a mixer to various self-powered speakers or power amplifiers) we use parallel connections. To do this we simply connect each terminal (pin) of the connectors in parallel. That is, 1 to 1, 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 (or tip to tip, ring to ring and sleeve to sleeve in a TRS connector). When we split a signal in two in this way, we refer to a "Y-cable" or "Y" connection, since the division of a signal in two looks like letter "y". Contrary to what it may seem, a y-cable is not a technically incorrect solution, but a correct way of splitting the audio signal. In fact, when a self-powered loudspeaker system or one channel of...
