At PLASA07, German intercom manufacturer Riedel Communications will introduce two new headset series -- AIR and PRO. The two new series join Riedel‘s classic heavy-duty MAX headset, which was specially designed for use in areas with high ambient noise levels.
AIR - Ultra Light Professional Headset
The Riedel AIR series is the ideal ultra lightweight headset for customers who place great demands on quality, design and comfort. The AIR headset allows the user to communicate with their immediate environment and simultaneously listen & speak via the headset. The specially engineered DuPont Coolmax® material used for the exchangeable ear cushions provides great breathability and comfort for long hours. The 270º rotation of the microphone boom allows the microphone to be worn on either the left or right side, and a noise compensating electret or dynamic microphone guarantees a high quality response.
PRO - Closed Professional Headset
The Riedel PRO series provides reliable, high quality professional headsets that were designed closely with beyerdynamic® to suit the demanding requirements of digital intercom applications. The headphone features a neodymium magnet system for accurate reproduction and balanced sound. The soft circumaural earcups provide excellent noise attenuation and are as comfortable as the fully adjustable padded headband. The headset provides either a hypercardioid dynamic microphone or a high-quality omnidirectional condenser microphone for commentary applications. The 270º rotation of the microphone boom allows the microphone to be worn on either the left or right side.
