Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System

Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System

Improved Hearing Protection and Improved Communication

The Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System (PACE) provides a quality level of hearing protection without compromising the communications signal provided through your communications system.

Pro Flight Gear, LLC., a Minority Service Disabled Veteran Owned Emerging Small Business, is the manufacturer and sole distributor of the PACE System and Accessories. No other manufacturer or distributor can provide PACE, an in-ear communications system that has Custom and/or Non-Custom vented tips and uses a rugged 3.5mm connector plug.

Designed for Comfort and Versatility

Extremely low profile and behind the cranium design that eliminates cable snagging issues found in most under helmet/headset earphone systems.  By using a more standard cable connection, the Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System can be used and tested off of any device that utilizes a stereo connection.

The above illustration shows the approved USAF HGU-56-P configuration for PACE.

Earpieces & Ear Tips

Choice of Custom Earpieces or Non-Custom Ear Tips

The Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System has two styles of custom earpieces and two styles of non-custom earphone tips in a variety of colors:

In-the-Canal (ITC) | Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System

In-the-Canal (ITC) Custom Earpieces

In-the-Canal earphone tips provide a very low profile custom solution.
*Deep ear impressions required.

Part No: PFG-CME-ITC

In-the-Ear (ITE) | Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System

In-the-Ear (ITE) Custom Earpieces

In-the-Ear earphone tips are recommended for fixed-wing aircrew, particularly those who are exposed to high-g environments due to its better ability to be retained within the ear.
*Deep ear impressions required.

Part No: PFG-CME-ITE

Non-Custom Ear Tips

This system allows the use of PACE without the need for custom earphone tips, it can be a backup set for those in deployed or austere environments and comes in three canal sizes. Silicone ear tips or comply ear tips (black foam) are available.

Adaptors

Adaptors

PACE has adaptors that allow it to be used with current aircrew systems without major modification to flight equipment or replacement of standard communication cords:

SMB Connection to Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System (Rotary Wing Aircraft)

PACE Single SMB-PACE Adaptor (Rotary Wing Aircraft)

These adaptors work with helmets modified for SMB connector systems. There are two styles available, single-connection and dual-connection (used with hear-through systems).

Part No: PFG-PACE-1002

Y-Tap Connection to Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System (Fixed Wing Aircraft)

PACE Y-Tap Adaptor (Fixed Wing Aircraft)

This adapator allows quick modification of aircrew helmets and headsets that utilize a standard U-179 connection to pass communication signals to the ear cup. The system has a build in volume adjustment to allow user selection of the volume level based on the airframe/communication system they are utilizing.

Part No: PFG-PACE-1003

Extended Cable | Passive Attenuation Communications Earphone System

PACE 36″ 3.5 Earphone Extended Cable

A PACE Earphone Wire with extended length so that it can be used with Chemical/Biological Flight Equipment. Same performance with an extended cable.

Part No: PFG-PACE-1001-36
