Poor quality  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I had the original Micro with the HC5 element which worked very well as did the headphones, until the cord became intermittant.
So I purchased the new Pro-Micro from a UK Kenwood dealer, first noticed that the earphone pads had changed to a cheap foam instead of the leather pads on the original. The HC6 insert is OK if you use the TX EQ on the Kenwood TS-590 or TS-2K, but the headphone speakers left and right produces a distorted sound with a sort of screech around 1.5kHZ, terrible !. Returning them to the UK was not a cost option, so I took the old and new pair apart and swaped the speakers, and the ear pads. Success the headphones are working OK and are more comfortable with the old pads. The new and old speakers look exactly the same, but must be damaged in production, very poor quality control. Would I buy Heil again, certainly not until I see improved performance and quality control
Product is in production.
