Cobra is a modular boom arm headset from TV Equipment Associates which provides the user with personal choice and the flexibility to reconfigure the equipment to suite a specific type of mission. No tools are required and configuration changes can be made in a matter of seconds. The system components are fully ruggedised to withstand extreme environments and human factor considerations have resulted in a light weight design combined with long term comfort. The headset has both the boom mic and earphone mounted on flexible arms which are fully adjustable. The close-coupled supra aural type earphone stands off from your ear which provides greater comfort and, as the ear is not covered, monitoring of ambient noise is maximized.
