The MH180S Tactical Sniper Headset was specifically designed for snipers. Rather than making a sniper attempt to achieve a secure cheek weld with a headset that provides little, if any, unobstructed access for doing so, we designed the MH180S with a radically reduced, low-profile, side stabilizer bar on the non-microphone side of the headset.

This unique design offers the sniper clear access for the stock of a long weapon. Additional features, exclusive to the MH180V and MH180S models, include: the choice from one of four different lengths (S-XL) of vertical, stainless steel head frames – ensuring both a secure and comfortable personal fit coupled with the ability to position the waterproof, noise canceling boom microphone on the left or right side of the face. To attain additional stability, a fully adjustable nylon and Velcro, combination front/back head strap is included.

Bone conduction technology (receiving radio communications through the facial bones rather than the ear canal) affords the tactical operator the advantage of having no speaker hardware in, on or over either ear - allowing 360 degrees of unobstructed auditory situational awareness. The audio transducer(s), located inside the headset housing(s), are positioned in front of the ears. Incoming radio transmissions are transferred to the transducer(s), then through the temporal bones of the face and received in the inner ear.

When hearing protection is desired, while wearing the MH180S, a sniper can simultaneously use various forms of electronic or inert forms of hearing protection. By utilizing one of these forms of protection, the operator has the personal operational advantage of choosing when and when not to employ hearing protection without sacrificing the ability to maintain crucial radio communications. Following nearly 18 months of field tests and evaluations, Atlantic Signal recommends the Aearo/Peltor branded Combat Arms Earplugs as the inert form of hearing protection and either Sordin or Peltor for electronic protection (see the hearing protection link on this site for further details). Peltor/Aearo and Sordin are the two most widely known and respected tactical hearing protection providers in the world.

The MH180S can be customized for each individual operator including: custom cable lengths, multiple body/finger/weapon mount push-to-talk switches, inline quick disconnects, remote radio volume control, breathing apparatus adapter kits and more.
