Not impressed  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have the older version of this headset with the HC-5 element. My impression is that this set-up is way over rated.

The headset is uncomfortable to wear for any length of time and the cords are too stiff (easily tangled) and WAY TOO SHORT. When the ear pads wore out, I removed the mike boom and attached it to a set of Sony stereo headphones. I threw the Heil headset out. Even with the short mike cable, itís a far more comfortable set-up.

As for the HC-5 element, itís adequate for general use with my Ten-Tec Omni-V. But, I get superior audio reports with my old secondhand D104. The HC-5 is useless on my IC-735 without an outboard preamp. For the Icom, the 444D is the way to go.

Great headset on Closeout for $50..  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use the ProMicro along with the HMP (preamp) on my IC756. This is a very good light-weight headset which I highly recommend. Very good audio reports on the Icom and Yeasu radios with this headset. But you'd better hurry, they are on closeout at HRO for $50 as of 6/7/01.

Great Audio on transmit & receive!  Time owned: months
Have used this Heil Pro-Micro headset for at least three to four years. I don't think they make this headset any longer. Only problem had been RF feedback locking the rig in transmit from time to time. Bob Heil gave me the needed fix and the Pro-Micro rarely locks in transmit. Gives superior audio over Icom factory mikes. I have the HC-5 cartridge in this mike. Use on an IC-775DSP. If you can find this headset still for sale I recommend it.
