Racal Acoustics RA108 Slimgard II High-Noise Headset

Racal RA108 Slimgard II headset  

We originally designed our RA108 Slimgard II headset to meet the communication and hearing protection needs of US mechanised infantry operating in tracked vehicles, wearing close fitting PASGT-style ballistic helmets. We subsequently developed a variant for the Canadian Iris system.

Racal RA108 Slimgard II headset


RA108 units are now fielded worldwide — including Canada, Australia, Austria, and Spain — for infantry commander and passenger applications, in both tracked and wheeled APCs.


The RA108 Slimline II earshells offer ANR combined with passive noise attenuation for excellent speech intelligibility and hearing protection.

The earshell design is compatible with the most close-fitting ballistic helmet. An over-helmet strap allows the headset to be donned and doffed without removing the helmet, which is vital when exiting a vehicle rapidly.

The Talk-Through facility enables normal face-to-face conversation without having to remove the headset.
