Hollyland Solidcom C1 PRO Headsets
Hollyland comms are renowned for their reliability, the full-duplex Hollyland Solidcom C1 PRO wireless intercom headset system is no exception. The Solidcom C1 PRO headset adopts advanced DECT 6.0, 1.9GHz technology to create a fully wireless and self-contained communication solution with exceptional sound clarity, very low latency and an impressive range of up to 1,100ft (350m) radius (line of sight) around the master headset.Read More
They have become the immediate go-to solution for wireless comms not only because of their reliability but also their ease of use – there are no belt packs, no hub and no wires, just great wireless comms. These versatile C1 PRO Hollyland wireless headsets come in a choice of 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, 6-way and 8-way configurations. Whilst a key feature of the Solidcom-C1 PRO is its ability to operate without a fixed hub there is also a hub available to further enhance the capabilities of the system. Most importantly inclusion of the hub allows integration of existing 2 and 4-wire wired comms systems and a program feed but it also provides a level of headset management including grouping. In addition, the system’s headset count and range can be scaled using hard-wired, linked multiple hubs.
The Solidcom C1 PRO system is pre-programmed to work straight out of the box – simply switch your Hollyland headsets on and start talking. The audio quality is a vast improvement over traditional walkie-talkies, with each user being easily recognisable with loud clear transmissions. A built-in mute function allows headsets to leave and join the conversation simply by lowering and raising the microphone boom on the headset. The C1 PRO also allows the user to leave the mic boom in the talk position whilst switching between talk and mute with an ear capsule-mounted push-to-talk button.
With their unmatched dual-mic environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, the Solidcom C1 PRO headphones deliver clear sound even in demanding, noisy conditions. Its directional main mic focuses precisely on the speaker’s voice and, simultaneously, the omnidirectional secondary mic mounted on the ear capsule collects environmental noise from different directions as noise samples. The sophisticated ENC algorithm processes the audio signal, wiping out background noise and producing audio with unmatched clarity, and with very low latency to boot.

Unmatched Clarity with Hollyland’s Dual-Mic ENC Technology
The Solidcom C1 PRO harnesses Hollyland’s advanced dual-mic technology. With its directional main mic targeting the speaker’s voice and the omnidirectional mic capturing ambient noise, it effectively processes and cancels out distractions. The result? Crystal-clear sound quality, even in the most challenging environments.
Clear, Intelligible Sound with Hollyland’s Acoustic Echo Cancellation
The Solidcom C1 PRO intercom system delivers incredibly clear sound, even in the most demanding, noisy environments. Its premium Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) function provides powerful removal of unwanted voice echo within its 150Hz to 7 kHz frequency response range. This feature, along with incredibly low latency, enables efficient teamwork with minimal fatiguing distractions.
Stable Communications with Complete Privacy
The Solidcom C1 PRO ensures top-notch security in wireless communications. Its encryption technology diligently guards your conversations against outsiders. Moreover, each headset’s unique dual-antenna design bolsters communication clarity and mitigates interference. This optimised structure not only amplifies stability but also doubles the user capacity, ensuring that your team’s discussions are both private and consistently crystal clear.
Lightweight Durability Meets Tailored Comfort
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Solidcom C1 PRO offers the epitome of portability, weighing a mere 170g (6oz), battery included. Made with resilient PC-ABS materials, it promises lasting durability even in demanding conditions. The over-ear leather cushion aligns naturally with the human ear, ensuring stability and comfort, while the on-ear foam cushion provides a lower profile perhaps cooler wearing experience, both are included for each headset and are easily interchangeable. The wide scope of adjustment of the headband ensures a stable fit for all head sizes.
Prolonged Use with Rechargeable and Replaceable Batteries
The Hollyland Solidcom C1 PRO ensures uninterrupted communication with its efficient energy usage, boasting a 20% reduction in power consumption over the previous model. Each headset is provided with a spare lithium battery too, allowing for quick and easy replacement in the field. This feature minimises downtime and ensures that the master headset can run for 6 hours, and the remote headset for a notable 10 hours. Charging is swift too, with the supplied intelligent charger taking just 2.5 hours to fully rejuvenate each battery.
Flexible Solutions for Every Team Size
The Solidcom C1 PRO system can be scaled to cater for diverse team requirements. Non-hub packages support 2 to 8 users. The inclusion of a Hub adds an additional wired headset plus the ability to add multiple hubs for larger teams.
Hollyland Wireless Comms | Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, the Solidcom C1 PRO series does feature a side tone function. Side tone allows the user to hear their own voice in the headset, providing valuable feedback that helps control voice modulation. The presence of this function enhances the overall user experience and helps ensure clear and effective communication. On the Solidcom C1 PRO headsets, the side tone can’t be volume adjusted, but from our robust testing of the system, the volume is set at a comfortable volume from the factory.

Connecting multiple sets of Solidcom C1 PRO headsets is straightforward thanks to Hollyland’s user-friendly design. Out of the box, the headsets are pre-programmed for instant use – just switch them on and the system will work. If you want to add more headsets to an existing system, you can do so either through a quick pairing or the optional hub. This optional hub also enables you to integrate existing comms systems, split headsets into groups and create larger systems by hardwire linking of additional hubs, offering great scalability.
Whilst up to 8 headsets can be used perfectly well without the need for cumbersome belt packs or a powered hub there is an optional hub available. Up to eight pro remote wireless headsets can be registered to the hub plus there is also the possibility to add a single wired headset, very often used by a director, floor manager and includes a “voice of god” function to make sure they are heard over and above all general chat. The hub also allows integration of existing 2 or 4 wire comms systems and splitting of all headsets into two separate groups. Several hubs can be linked together to create larger systems.
Hollyland headsets, particularly the Solidcom C1 PRO series, are designed with versatility in mind. They are particularly suited to industries requiring clear, reliable and wireless communication. The theatre and live events industry find these headsets invaluable due to their ease of use, high-quality audio and full-duplex communication. However, they’re also used extensively in broadcasting, film production, sports events and any situation that requires a robust and quick to deploy communication solution. Thanks to the high-gain directional mic and advanced noise cancellation technology, they can even work at a whisper for when you need to be especially quiet with your communications.
Reliable operation in an open field scenario is available up to approximately 1000ft (300m) omnidirectionally from the main headset or hub. It’s therefore potentially possible in the best conditions for two headsets to communicate at distances up to 1000ft (600m). Whilst open field use, literally in free airspace, will always give the best operational range results the RF technology employed, DECT6 1.9ghz, also has excellent propagation within buildings or through obstacles.
Each Hollyland Solidcom C1 PRO series headset is supplied with a rechargeable battery plus a spare to allow for a one in use, one on charge scenario. If required Batteries can be hot swapped allowing for extremely fast reconnection. The main headset lasts up to 5 hours on its battery, while the remote headsets will last up to 10 hours each. All headset only kits include a multi slot fast charging station with charge status. The optional Solidcom C1 Pro hub is mains powered but can also accept NP-F batteries, V-Mount or G-Mount batteries for reliable, in the field use.
