Really Good Headset  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I am extremely pleased with the performance of his high quality headset. It is very lightweight and comfortable, and does not unduly pinch or bind the ears. The open-air earphone receivers provide excellent sound quality. The microphone has received many excellent audio reports. Other operators often spontaneously mention I have good audio when I use this microphone with my Ten-Tec OMNI-VII transceiver.

Solid, durable construction. I have been a product reviewer of microphones and related equipment for use with speech recognition software for at least the past 10 years, and, in my opinion, this is an exceptional tool for the job.

It is, however, a bit pricey, with an approximate street price of $300. It comes with an unterminated cable, meaning you must solder your own microphone and headphone connectors, or hire someone to do that for you, before you can use it with your rig.

Happy trails and good DX to you. //// James - K8JHR ////
