For those in hazardous environments, staying connected and heard is essential. To ensure safe communications can be maintained, MIRA Safety offers its gas mask microphone for those in need of a reliable way to communicate in environments where clear speech may be difficult. This review covers MIRA Safety’s four types of gas mask microphones: the CM-6M, CM-7M, CM-8M, & TAPR, to provide a comprehensive view of the pros and cons of each microphone.
CM-6M Gas Mask Microphone
The CM-6M is a lightweight microphone that is designed to be worn on the front of a gas mask. It has a small size and is easy to adjust, making it one of the most comfortable options on the market. The microphone has a long, flexible cable that can reach from the user’s gas mask to a communications device. The CM-6M has both a microphone and external speakers, with a microphone switch for easy access. The audio quality is excellent, providing clear and reliable audio that can reach up to 35 meters away from the user. Some users have noted that prolonged use can cause some discomfort, but overall, the CM-6M is a great choice for those needing a comfortable and reliable gas mask microphone.
CM-7M Gas Mask Microphone
The CM-7M is similar to the CM-6M, but offers more durability and protection. It is made of a flexible metal mesh and plastic that is designed to be durable and water resistant. The microphone is adjustable for a more comfortable fit, and the sound quality is good, however, the range is slightly shorter than the CM-6M, reaching up to 25 meters away from the user. The CM-7M is a great choice for those who are looking for a reliable and durable microphone that can maintain clear audio, even in wet, humid environments.
CM-8M Gas Mask Microphone
The CM-8M is similar to the CM-7M, but is slightly larger and heavier. It also offers improved sound quality and range, making it a good choice for those in need of a more reliable and durable microphone. The sound quality is increased due to its larger size, as it is capable of capturing more sound waves than its smaller counterparts. The range is also improved, reaching up to 50 meters away from the user. The CM-8M is a great choice for those who need a reliable and durable microphone for hazardous environments.
TAPR Gas Mask Microphone
The TAPR gas mask microphone is designed to be used on the left or right side of the gas mask. It is a more specialized microphone than the CM-6M, CM-7M, and CM-8M, as it is designed for use with a communications device. The TAPR has a built-in amplifier that boosts the audio up to an impressive 20dB, making it ideal for use in noisier environments. The audio quality is good, although users should be aware that it does not have the range of its counterparts. The TAPR is a great choice for those who need a microphone for communications in hazardous environments.
Overall, MIRA Safety’s gas mask microphones provide reliable and comfortable audio communication for hazardous environments. The CM-6M, CM-7M, CM-8M, and TAPR all offer clear audio quality and can provide reliable audio communication up to different ranges. Each microphone has its own pros and cons, so it’s important to consider what features are most important for your application before making a decision.
