At the extremely popular and successful AUSA 2014 Annual Meeting & Exposition held in Washington DC, 13 October 2014 – 15 October 2014, INVISIO announced the launch of its next generation X5 Headset. According to the company’s press release marking the launch, “the new headset takes comfort, fit and durability to a new level. It will be available for volume shipping from the first quarter of 2015.”

The extensively fielded and combat proven INVISIO X5 headset is a dual sided in-ear hearing protection headset that utilizes the patented INVISIO Bone Conduction Microphone Technology for crystal clear communications. The INVISIO X5 headset has industry leading hearing protection (32 dB SNR) and 360 degree situational awareness in a small and comfortable in-ear wearing style.

The new INVISIO X5 is an even smaller and fully ergonomic headset that easily fits all ear shapes. It is a true “One Fits all” headset and has been further improved in size and shape to offer maximum comfort during long periods of use.

In addition, the new INVISIO X5 has increased durability and ruggedness, along with a new cable management system.

Soon after the AUSA show, in November 2014, the company announced that it has received three follow up orders from military customers. The orders are for headsets, control units and accessories. The total order value is SEK 5.3 m and the products will be delivered during the first quarter of 2015. In a related press release, also dated in November, INVISIO announced it has received an order from an undisclosed military customer in the US. The order is for headsets, control units and accessories. The total order value is SEK 14.2 m and the products will be delivered during the first half of 2015.

US Special Forces have been using INVISIO headsets to great satisfaction. A US SOF out of Ft. Bragg, whose name could not be revealed for security reasons, has said, “I received the INVISIO X50 and was not quite sure how this headset would perform in the field. I was very impressed with the INVISIO X50 throughout my testing period. I used it for 3 weeks of CQB and never had an issue. I have used multiple different bone mic type headsets and the INVISIO X50 is by far the best sounding both while transmitting and receiving. The sound quality is totally amazing.”
