NASCAR Headsets Made in the USA

We did the research to find American made NASCAR headsets that you can tote with you to the speedway for years to come. Below are our findings. You’ll want a scanner to go with your headset, so we did the research for you on those as well.

Complete List of Headset Brands Made in the USA

Racing Electronics

Headquarters: Concord, NC

States manufacturing in: NC

Racing Electronics is the go-to for NASCAR headsets, and they manufacture all of them at their headquarters in Concord, North Carolina. The Racing Electronics Gemini 5 Intercom System is a great choice for two people (it’s the one I use at every race I attend). Racing Electronics RE-58 Platinum headphones are the “old reliable” selection of headsets. The RE Gem-5 Intercom Headphones are top-of-the-line intercom headsets for racegoers. These headphones are the go-to choice for crew chiefs and spotters across all three NASCAR series. For the fan, these headsets allow you to speak with your friends in the stands during the race, without worrying about the track noise.

Race Day Electronics

Headquarters: North Carolina

States manufacturing in: NC

Race Day Electronics is another manufacturer in the U.S. The Race Day Electronics RDE-058 headphones are a great option if you’re a little more price-conscious and are also a good choice for kids. This headset fits all major race scanners and has an easily adjustable band to fit almost everyone.

Factors To Consider

Audio Quality

You can’t sacrifice sound quality when you’re listening to your favorite drivers at the track. Clarity is especially important for intercom systems.


Look at the durability of each headset. These are investments that will last you for several years; you want to get a reliable headset that you won’t have to worry about it breaking. My RE headset has been banged around a few times and still works like a chime.


Comfort is really important when you’ll be using your headset for 3+ hours at a time. Consider:

  • Speaker padding material
  • Adjustable straps
  • Sturdiness
  • Fit for different head sizes (helps reduce pressure and increase comfort)

Value and Price

Nobody likes overpaying. Compare the price of every headset to the quality of the product to make sure you are getting a great deal for your headset. If you’re thinking about renting a headset, all of the options we listed are most cost-efficient if you go to more than 3 races in your lifetime.
