The LiteCom Pro III headsets can be worn alone or also together with the team’s safety helmets. The headsets help both protect the team members from harmful noise levels and provide a high-quality radio communication channel. The very latest headsets additionally permit the staff to hear ambient noise and to communicate amongst themselves and with the riders without removing their hearing protection.

The analog and digital programmable two-way radio of the 3M™ PELTOR™ WS™ Litecom Pro III Headset enables clear, hands-free communication in high levels of noise and integrates seamlessly into existing two-way radio systems. It also comes equipped with Bluetooth® multipoint functionality, where users can connect wirelessly to two mobile devices.
