Pete Carroll wants you to know he's "a one-eared guy."
The Seahawks fifth-year head coach hasn't been involved in any type of ear-altering incident, no.
He's referring to what type of headset he prefers to wear on the sideline when communicating with his players on the field and with his assistant coaches in the booth.
"I'm not one of those guys that's trying to shut out all the sound, now," Carroll said today from the Coaches Loft located on the suite level of CenturyLink Field, where Bose - the official headphone and headset of the NFL - showcased their first active noise canceling headset to be used by all teams in the League. "I don't wear double headsets because I want to hear what's going on. I like to hear the crowd and all that.
"But for those guys that are going to wear the double headsets, they're not going to hear anything. That's not the way I like to do it, but I love being able to function at a really high level and these guys let us do that."
Carroll said he and his coaching staff have used the state-of-the-art headsets through the first four preseason games, noting the product produces a sound "like it's coming right from the studio."
"It's going to take us to a new level," Carroll added. "We need to be the highest level of technology in the business - that's what the NFL is all about and that's what Bose has been able to do for us."
The NFL's new product has Carroll's full support. Just don't forget - he's a one-eared kind of guy.Read
