Racal Acoustics RA5001 Raptor Medium-Noise Headset

Racal RA5001 Raptor headset  

The RA5001 Raptor headset includes many design improvements based on more than six years of feedback from users of its very successful precursor, the RA5000 headset. Its environmental and electromagnetic compatibility has been upgraded in line with the most challenging specifications (MIL-STD-810G and 461F).

It combines communication, hearing protection, and situational awareness into a lightweight, comfortable and extremely rugged design, ideal for use with next-generation commercial and military intercoms systems.

Racal RA5001 Raptor headset


Upgraded Features and Benefits

Hearing Protection

Active noise reduction (ANR) for low-frequency vehicle noise and passive noise reduction (PNR) for impulse noise; a unique adjustable strap allows users to increase the PNR when desired.

Communications Intelligibility

Clear monaural or binaural high-quality speech communications from radios and intercoms.

Situational Awareness

Selectable talk-through, powered by one AA battery or by vehicle intercom to save batteries. Independent binaural compression technology reduces impulse noise to a safe level but still allows the user to hear ambient sounds.

Equipment Compatibility

Comfortable fit under current ballistic helmets, including the US Army ACH, USMC LWH, and Mark 7. The ear-cup design ensures an unobstructed cheek-to-stock weld when operating small arms, with no interference with body-armor collars. Improved MOLLE compatibility with large reversible equipment clip.

Swappable non-ferrous boom microphone and M-116/G microphone port when using M40/M50-series protective masks.


MIL-STD-810G compliance, including immersibility at 1-meter depth for 30 minutes for switchbox and headset, plus an anti-ferrous microphone. MIL-STD-461F compliance for clear operation in even the most hostile electromagnetic environment.


Powered by intercom when attached. Batteries allow situational awareness capability when disconnected. Automatic reversionary mode allows the headset to work without power.


No training required for general operation.


Designed for long missions. Minimal clamping force and field-replaceable ear cushions ensure comfort throughout product life.
