This Eartec intercom kit provides you with everything you need to create a four-user full-duplex intercom system. It consists of the TCS Intercom Power Station, four Ultra Heavy-Duty Dual-Ear Headsets, and four XLR cables.

The TCS Intercom Power Station can support up to six wired headsets in full-duplex mode with no beltpacks required for simultaneous hands-free talking between all users. It is housed in a rugged plastic console to withstand the rigors of use in the field. It is portable, but can also be permanently installed, and runs off of the included 12V battery or included AC power supply.

The Ultra Heavy-Duty Dual-Ear Headsets feature a unique heptagonal earcup design that fully covers the ear for long-lasting comfort. They do not require beltpacks because volume and amplification are built into the headsets. Each headset is constructed from durable polycarbonate and has a flexible gooseneck mic boom.

Each cable has a 3-pin female XLR connector on one end and a 3-pin male XLR connector on the other to connect the headsets to the power station. The broadcast-grade cables are shielded to protect against signal interference and provide a grounded connection.

Note: This system can be expanded to six users by adding two more headsets. It can be further expanded to accommodate 12 users by adding a junction box per each additional user.

  • 4 x Eartec Ultra Heavy-Duty Dual-Ear Headset (TCS)

    The Ultra Heavy-Duty Dual-Ear Headset from Eartec features a heptagonal earcup design that covers the ear fully. Its earpads are soft and wide, becoming thicker at the bottom and rear of the pads. They sport a flexible gooseneck mic boom. This unit is designed for TCS systems.

  • 4 x Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 50' (15.2 m), Black

    The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (50') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
    Caged type contact and improved ground contact

Four-Person Wired Intercom System with Dual-Sided Headsets (TCS) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and value I am using the Eartec Wired system for Live production camera switching. Good quality, the headsets are comfortable and the mics pickup the voice great. I would highly recommend these and for the price you can't beat them compared to Telex or Clear Com. Also the XLR cables that come with are good quality. You get beyond what you pay for in this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Good Investment After about a year this system has failed. The amplifier modules inside the headsets are of poor design. Continuous buzz not causes by power supply unit. Would work now then cuts off then you unplug it for a while then plugs it back in. It works for a while then repeat. Just too unreliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, works great, expandable We've been renting intercom systems for big multi camera jobs for the past few years. After one-too-many instances of the rental systems coming with dead headsets or funky cables we decided to invest in a system of our own. After a lot of research we decided on this kit, plus an additional two headsets (the single sided ones) and some additional cables. While it's not as loud as a regular clear-com system, and the lack of a mute button for each headset can be annoying, as well as the inability to daisy-chain the headsets, we are thoroughly impressed with the build quality, performance and versatility of this Ear-Tec system. The lack of hip-packs is a bit strange at first, but in actual production it makes the setup quicker and easier, less to transport, less to break. The lunchbox base station is durable and runs on battery. We didn't think we needed the battery power, but we actually use it off the battery 99% of the time. Sometimes running on AC power will introduce a hum or buzz into the system (we're in 50hz land and are often in locations with dirty power) and the battery just ran out on us for the first time, after 3 months of using the system at least once a week, usually more, with out a single recharge! We accidentally left the whole system on for a whole week during that period as well. The base has plugs for six headsets, but if we need more, we just rent headset/hip-packs from our rental house (which do support daisy-chaining) and since this system uses the same standard and cables as Clear-Com, PI, etc. we can expand the system as much as we need (we just don't take the base from the rental house.) Can't rave about the system enough!
