July 14th — Lead time on shipping Analog/Partyline ClearCom products is estimated at 16 weeks * once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers. Clear-Com is constantly working to source new components. Unfortunately, the underlying chip shortage is likely to continue into 2023. While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
* Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update. Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
The HS-6D telephone-style handset offers a convenient means for the less frequent intercom user to link with the system. It is also useful when comfort or appearance requires a more conventional look. Full-duplex communication is possible, and the push-to-talk button minimizes bleed of external sound into the intercom line when the handset is not in use. The handset connects with the intercom station via a 4-pin female XLR connector on a coiled cord. A wall/console mounting cradle is included.

Please note that in order to have a fully functioning intercom system you need to connect your headset to a beltpack which is in turn connected to a main station which supplies power to the system. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.
