Read about some of our highlights from this year.
This year was our first time exhibiting at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, showing a limited range of our SWATCOM products to the motorsport enthusiast. Many of the SWATCOM products are well suited for Motorsport, be that the SC21’s in ear passive filter helping with all the pops and bangs, or the SWATCOM Multicom helping pit crews, or the SC55 for Marshalls or race teams, oh and don’t worry bikers, comms are on the way!!
SWATCOM at the CLA Game Fare
At the end of July, we attended the CLA Game Fare for the second, held at Ragley Hall Estate in Warwickshire. Excellent weather for this three-day event with 120,000 visitors attending. We exhibited to further strengthen our SWATCOM brand of hearing protection and communications, which was very well received. Nice to catch up with some of our loyal resellers, whilst also catching up with some familiar faces from around the industry – as well as meeting new people, introducing our brand to . Already booked for 2023!
SWATCOM Nick spends his time driving around the country stopping off at gun shops and country wear outlets with our SWATCOM shooting and outdoor range, September saw him visit our office for a catch–up and a round of golf. The meeting did not become anything more than pre–golf banter and by the time we hit the driving range for a warm up the nerves were showing. The weather was exceptional for the time of year, and The Park at Goodwood was looking and playing as wonderful as always, just a shame it had us hacking around.
As part of our ongoing development with our business partners and suppliers we are immensely proud to have launched our new SC55 CC passive headset. Its ergonomic design means it can be worn for prolonged periods of time without any discomfort, the SWATCOM SC55 achieves the perfect balance of hearing defence, comfort & communications, a compromise perfectly executed. The Carbon Fibre effect finish makes it a great looking headset to!
Having used numerous types of headsets around the world both digital & non digital, I was most impressed with this iteration. Having spent all morning on this unsilenced bike day with just a hand held radio which was impossible to hear 100%, the afternoon was a transformation once I had this new headset. In my opinion & 50 years experience this headset truly achieves the perfect balance of hearing defence & external noise awareness, a compromise perfectly executed. Wearing & using this new head set was simply perfect, I could easily hear everything on Circuit whilst retaining complete spacial awareness of sound beyond the Circuit, a perfect balance.
We have now been a headline sponsors of the CPSA (Clay Pigeon Shooting Association) for two years and what fun it has been. The CPSA have welcomed us into their family, and we love being associated with this great organisation. As sponsors we get to attend lots of national and international clay shooting competitions, we also support these events with SWATCOM prizes to various category winners.
For over 20 years we have been supplying over ear hearing protection, it has continued to show that not everyone wants something over their ears. As a result, we are now proud to offer customers the option to choose between over the head, behind the head or in-ear hearing protection. Everyone has their own preferences, for this reason our aim is to offer you the most advanced & reliable products on the market to choose from, while keeping options vast & most importantly quality assured.
To keep reaching into new markets Talking Headsets have partnered with B&Q so that the DIYer has even more access to our range of PPE through the trusted digital marketplace of B&Q. With a range of delivery options or click and collect Talking Headsets (SWATCOM) are trying to make all their products as accessible as possible .
