Headquartered in San Leandro, California, Pacific Coast Laboratories (PCL) manufactures and sells two-way radio accessories and custom fit ear tips. These products are regarded by police, military and first responders as the best tactical earpieces available.
PCL has more than a half century of experience in the field of human hearing. Our history began with the manufacturing of high-quality custom ear molds for hearing impaired, medical and hearing protection applications, Today, in addition to developing the highest quality earpieces for tactical communications, PCL also provides audiologists across the US with custom earpiece mold design and manufacturing services.
PCL revolutionized tactical communications with patented Behind-The-Ear (BTE) technology and SoundWaves® audio wires. Our approach places a high-fidelity speaker directly behind the ear. This BTE design eliminates problems associated with traditional hollow-coil earpieces. SoundWaves® wires deliver superior sound (higher volume and better clarity) along with greater reliability.
Designed for the rigorous requirements of police, fire and security personnel, our custom fit ear tips and audio wires are also popular with professional race car drivers, event staff, television journalists and people in any walk of life where secure and audible two-way radio communications are vital. Most of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA from the highest quality components. This results in unrivaled durability, reliability and sound fidelity.
