Looking for best price on base Comtac III's (W/Gel cups)but, am hesitant to throw $324 w/ free shipping at Botach. Do we have an industry member with competitive pricing?

Called yesterday and they were out of the Foliage. Went to place an order and saw they are charging more for the Black.

Well I ordered mine on the 21st, hopefully I got them before they were "out"

I noticed that the website still says that the Foliage are in stock and still on sale for $299??....

We're talking about the non-comm version, right? I have Sordins but I'd love to find a pair of comm-capable Comtac IIIs.

dont mean to derail this but are the comm 3's really that much better than say the electronic howard leight impact sport $50 ones?

i've been using the HL's hard for 2-3 yrs now and not seen a failure.

Yes sound quality and compression vs cutting sound and gel ears are vastly improved.

Also, here is a great comtac vendor.

Whatever you do, avoid 'Tool Deals' on Amazon.

Just got through some bullshit with them where they listed in stock items, charged the card and then magically had a 'warehouse error' and then dont have the item and are a total pain in the ass to deal with.

Sorry for the thread drift, but just a quick question.

How easy is it to convert the non-comm version to a comm version in the future?

Is it even possible?

Thanks

The Comtacs? Pretty simple, but not cheap, nor as streamlined as buying a comm version from the factory.

All you need is a boom mic (~$150) and a y-cable ($100). You plug the boom mic into the y-cable, and the y-cable into the earcup. As a result, you have a bunch of extra dangly cables hanging off the back of your earcup. Whereas on a factory comm version the boom mic can plug directly into the earcup and you only have a single cable downlead off the back.
