General Description

The Telex DH3000 Series Headset is designed for use in dispatch
applications with low noise levels. Ambient noise levels may be
considered harmful when exposed to for long periods of time. In addition,
these ambient noise levels require users to increase communications
volume level for clear understandable communications.

The Telex DH3000 Series Headset is ideally suited to this environment.
Soft, pliable cushions provide passive attenuation of unwanted
background noise. The advanced active noise reduction system removes
even more noise in the communications frequency range. This
combination gives the Telex DH3000 Series Headset a unique
improvement in communications clarity and intelligibility. With ambient
noise reduced, communications levels can also be reduced, providing
less fatigue and an overall improvement in comfort.

Complimenting these noise reduction features is a durable, lightweight
design with adjustable sliders increasing long-term fit and comfort. A
boom mounted microphone utilizes an electret noise-canceling element
for improved noise rejection. Extended response drivers improve sound
reproduction. The result is a comfortable, lightweight, headset that
provides the ultimate in clear, understandable communications with no
batteries or complicated controls to get in the way.

The DH3200 is a dual-sided headset while the DH3000 is equipped with a
single earphone accompanied by a comfortable temple pad on the
opposite end on the headband.

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC
Rules, Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harm-
ful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.

Design Features (See Figure 1)

Fit and Comfort
An adjustable headband gives the wearer two inches (51mm) of up and down
earphone adjustment per side, while the gimbal mounting improves the
headset’s side-to-side comfort.

Boom Microphone
The DH3000 Series Headset features a miniature, amplified, noise canceling
electret microphone that provides superior ambient noise rejection.  The
microphone is mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom that permits precise
microphone placement.  The boom rotates 320° to allow the microphone to
be worn on either side of the head.  For best results, the microphone should
be placed as close to the mouth as possible.  The microphone includes a
replaceable windscreen to minimize popping, hissing, and breathing sounds
when speaking.

The DH3000 Series Headset contains an On/Off switch to control ANR power
and a Hi/Low switch for controlling receiver volume.

Cordage and Plugs
The microphone cordage is protected inside the boom.  A strain relief on the
cord provides maximum durability. Shielded wire throughout the headset
protects against RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and EMI (Electro
Magnetic Interference).

Headset Operation

1. Connect the headsets quick disconnect to the quick disconnect on

the LC1500/2500 PTT Assembly.

2. Rotate the entire boom overhead to wear the microphone on either

the right or left side of the head (Note the two stops below the boom

3. With the headset resting securely on top of the head, check that

the earphone housings are centered over the ears.  Maximum
performance depends on the proper fit of the headset.

4. For best noise cancellation, position the microphone as close to the

mouth as possible and speak in a normal voice.

5. To activate the Active Noise Reduction feature, move the “On/Off”

switch to the “On” position (See Figure 3). The active noise reduction
feature of this headset uses power obtained from the VEGA 


Plus Nexus through the boom microphone connection. Active noise
reduction will only function when power is received from the
microphone connection.

6. When required, the user may increase headphone volume level by

moving the volume “HI/LOW” switch to the “HI” position (See
Figure 3). The “low” position is considered normal.

Microphone Gain Adjustment

The microphone gain has been factory-adjusted to the nominal level required
for normal radio operation. Under normal circumstances microphone gain
does not require adjustment. If needed, adjustment by a qualified technician
is recommended. To access the microphone gain, insert a 1.5mm flat head
screwdriver through the access hole in the microphone housing (See Figure
4). Clockwise rotation increases the microphone gain.

Note: There is a hole on both
sides of the microphone
housing.  One is blocked by
foam.  Do not use the side
blocked by foam.
