CME Complete Kit.
We are a Westone® Authorized Dealer. Complete kit includes CME's (Custom Molded Earpieces) 1 Pair, Modular Cable, and Helmet Interface Installation Kit. For installation in new a helmet, installation in an existing helmet by us, or self-installation.
Westone attenuating custom communications earpiece system is a high-quality communications system using specialized electronics and modular communications cable in conjunction with a custom-molded earpiece. Similar to CEP's, but with the advantage of an earpiece that is custom-molded for the individual's ears allowing for further noise reduction. There are four different modular cables each tuned for the noise level of the environment (three designed for fixed-wing and one of which is specifically for helicopter use). Designed to passively reduce noise as well as protect hearing. Flight evaluations have shown the attenuation system reduces noise by an average of 30dBA providing a significantly quieter environment inside a jet while providing clear communications.
How To Order-
Place your order with us. Obtain a set of "Deep Ear Molds" from a hearing professional. This item does require some processing time as the earpieces are made to order.
Earpiece impressions will need to be made by a professional Hearing Aid Specialist or Audiologist. You will need to have a set of "Deep Ear Molds" made that follows these guidelines:
Impressions must be taken using a silicone impression material. Impressions must be made with a closed jaw. Impressions must be deep; the second bend must be visible on the impression. Impressions must fill all retentive features and be free of voids. Impressions must include extra material on the outside of the ear to fully show all detail in the outer ridges of the helix, concha rim, heel, tragus, and crus.
You can use Westone's hearing professional locator tool here: Find a Hearing Professional (westone.com) to find a hearing professional in your area.
Once the impressions are made please send them to us at:
401 Brookletts Ave
Easton MD 21601
Please include your name, contact info, and order number with your impressions when you send them.
Vented or Non-Vented:
Vented- Modular silicone earpiece with a vent to equalize pressure in the ear canal. Vented CME's are recommended for flight above 30,000 ft or in situations with rapid descends/ascends.
Non-Vented- Modular silicone earpieces without a pressure vent are for flight under 30,000 feet and ground crew.
You may choose one color, two colors, or three colors for the custom molded earpieces. If you want your CME's to be one complete solid color chose the color in Color #1, two colors choose a color for #1 and #2, three colors chose a color for #1, #2, and #3. You may also choose to have the colors be solid or swirled.
So it is possible to have
-one solid color
-two solid colors
-three solid colors
-two swirled colors
-three swilred colors
Note: Colors with an * are "single" colors only, also in the case of the pre-determined camo patterns which are more than one color swilred, just chose that color for Color #1. for example if you choose "Pink Camo" your earpieces will be pink/white/grey swirled.
Laser engraving can be done on the earpieces up to 7 characters.
Note on CME's:
It is very important to try your CME earpieces on and wear them for a couple of hours
a day for a few days before using them with the modular cables or in flight. This allows
for your ears to become more accustomed to the fit of a custom earpiece,
which will allow better comfort when used in flight.
Cables are specially designed for use with CME's. They are "quieter" to "louder" and it is recomended that you use the cable that best matches the level of sound within your aircraft. Use the guide below for refference.
For installation in new a helmet, installation in an existing helmet by us, or self-installation.
