Anyone who works in event management — weddings, conferences, film sets — knows that fluid communications are key. But rather than run around with your iPhone glued to the side of your head while everything goes to pieces, why not invest in a wireless intercom headset system? Hollyland launched a new set Thursday that could fit the bill.
That way, you and your team can keep in constant touch and you’ll look super-important, too.

Hollyland Solidcom C1 Full-Duplex Wireless Intercom Headset System
As Hollyland puts it, its new Solidcom C1 intercom headset system provides “Real-time Handsfree Communication for Next-level Team Synergy.”
Be that as it may, the company’s Solidcom C1 is a full-duplex wireless intercom headset system featuring advanced DECT 6.0 with encryption technology, so others can’t listen in. DECT stands for digital enhanced cordless communications, by the way.
The C1’s 1.9GHz DECT ensures reliable and secure communications in a radius up to 1,000 feet, the company said.
The set has up to 10 hours of battery life and requires no belt packs, hubs or base stations. However, the latter can expand the set’s functionality, as noted below.
A dual-antenna scheme helps ensures uninterrupted team communication in noisy environments, Hollyland said. A wide-band frequency response (150Hz-7KHz) and premium acoustic echo cancellation help with that. The directional microphone captures the speaker’s voice clearly while minimizing unwanted noise. It mutes automatically when the mic boom is raised up high.
Functions of master headset or hub base
The Solidcom C1 master headset creates a reliable wireless communication radius up to 1,000ft in line of sight. So your team can stay connected and move freely anywhere within event areas.
Alternatively, the optional Solidcom C1 Hub base can provide the same coverage if you prefer not to use the master headset configuration. The battery-powered hub also offers additional functions, such as cascaded connection of up to three systems, A/B grouping, and a one-key mute and announce function to communicate instantly with all headsets.
- Clear wideband with 150Hz to 7KHz frequency response
- 1,000-foot intercom connection range
- DECT 6.0 for enhanced stability and security
- Replaceable, rechargeable battery for extended working time
- 168g lightweight headsets
- Easy to use out of the box
- Customizable and expandable package scheme for varying team sizes
- Up to 3 systems cascaded connection (with optional hub)
- One-key team announce function (with optional hub)
Comfort and ease of use
Each headset weighs only 168g, lighter than most mobile phones, ensuring it is comfortable to wear for hours, Hollyland said. The headset is made with PC-ABS materials, guaranteeing outstanding flexibility and durability. The system is ready to use straight out of the box, as the headsets pair automatically when you unpack them.
Each intercom headset comes with a spare lithium battery for convenient field replacement, keeping the system up and running with minimal downtime. The batteries are rechargeable externally with a dedicated multi-port charger. Batteries require only 2.5 hours to reach full charge, and provide up to 10 hours of run time for each headset (5 to 6 hours for the master headset).
You can pick up the Hollyland Solidcom C1 Full-Duplex Wireless Intercom Headset System at Amazon for $999.
