What Airport (ARFF) Professionals Are Saying

LiberatorMAX system headset

The LiberatorMAX is the perfect communication system for ARFF departments

Communication is critical for ARFF firefighters. The ability to discuss strategies while en route to an incident is essential to effective operations. Setcom’s systems work with a department’s two-way radio systems to maintain transmissions with dispatch while engaging in a fire attack. LiberatorMAX headset provides the freedom to interact with the vehicle’s intercom and radio systems without being tethered to the vehicle. The up-to-23dB noise reduction of the Setcom headset increases hearing protection, which allows for safe and reliable communications.

Select features:
  • Up to seven radio transmit and/or intercom positions.
  • Range: Up to 1,500 feet (line of sight).
  • Plug-n-play components.
  • Full-duplex intercom communications.
  • “Instant On” – No need to turn the headset on and off. Advanced motion sensor technology has been integrated into the Liberator Headset. Headset shuts down after 15 minutes of inactivity and will automatically turn back on when the user grabs the headset.
  • Repairable parts decrease the lifetime cost of ownership and fast repair turnaround decreases downtime.
  • Portable Radio Integration – the Portable Radio Adapter Cable allows a firefighter to simultaneously communicate over 2 radio channels.


Setcom offers two lines of headsets for high noise environments, the CSB and 8B series. The CSB's behind-the-head headband allows it to be worn with most helmets. The 8B's over-the-head headband makes it more comfortable than most high noise headsets. Both the CSB and 8B are 24db noise reduction rated (NRR) and NFPA compliant.
