I thought I would make this information available.
I have had a opportunity to use these and they are a pretty good option to consider for integrating comms and earpro.
The QUIETPRO® is no standard tactical communication headset. It utilises digital Active Noise Reduction (digital ANR) and advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to ensure high-resolution situational awareness – which also enhances the soldier’s hearing. It provides unrivalled protection against noises generated by vehicles, aircraft and modern infantry and support weapons.
Nacre AS, based in Trondheim, Norway designed, developed and manufacturers the QUIETPRO® Intelligent Hearing System.
Honeywell is the current manufacture.
The ability for workers and soldiers to identify, process, and comprehend critical information, and to communicate clearly in their environment is key to the safety and success of any team. QUIETPRO delivers clear in-ear communication, essential for understanding and adapting to rapidly changing environments.
Connected to radios and other tactical communication platforms,QUIETPRO allows users to communicate without compromising listening quality,even under high-noise situations. It enables people to speak at a normal level and be heard without picking up environmental noises or compromising speech intelligibility — especially in sensitive operations.
Within its in-ear headset, QUIETPRO QP400 captures voice through the headset’s microphone inside the ear tip via air conduction. This eliminates pick up of ambient sounds commonly experienced with external microphones,enabling soldiers to communicate more clearly in sensitive environments or when and when wearing ballistic helmets, full-face respirators or other head PPE.
Superior digital processing.
Exterior microphones constantly analyze surrounding sounds,adapting hear-through continuously to facilitate natural hearing. QUIETPRO’s patented digital signal processing synthesizes allowable incoming signals,feeding the user fully optimized sound throughout continuous, intermittent and impulse noise. Result: the clearest communications especially in rapidly changing, high noise environments.
QUIETPROQP400 Flexible, smart radio communications.
On foot patrol, mounted in a vehicle, or in the air, QUIETPRO QP400 provides soldiers with full jump-on/plug-in transition throughout all mobility platforms. In fact, QUIETPRO QP400 adapts to the widest range of radio and comms platforms,maintaining simultaneous connections to personal and mounted radios, keeping soldiers networked and connected during all stages of their mission.
QUIETPRO QP400’s Radio Connectivity Supports:
Quick connection/disconnection cables that allow speedy, flexible connection to personal and vehicle comms
Optimum radio interface configuration that adapts to a wide range of available radios
Four-channel/intercom capability via smart comms hub with dedicated mobility port, that routes audio to connect up to four separate communication channels from tactical radios or mobility platform intercom systems simultaneously
New ergonomic design with push-button interface. Cabling on one side eliminates excess connections
Can be used with mobile telephones, handsets, personal listening devices, and other systems that need to present clear audio to the soldier
New these can be found around $500, but used and Nacre new old stock can be had for around $80.
Their are a variety of radio adapters available and any good tech could build a specialty set.
Why not stay with something like Peltors?
In the low humidity environments like Iraq/Syria/Afghanistan it doesn’t take much to dry/air out, but high humidity (swamp/jungle)
your ears can literally start filing up with sweat and stay that way.
So this is one of many options.

Nice option Joe, I will have to check these out.
