Summary: My second review after six years using them, have two, one with my K3 and one with my IC-7700 and they work fine on both. Its been said they are overrated, I don't think so,mine has been abused falling off the floor several times and the cord never has broken. Like I said in my previous review, RX and TX audio quality is great, they are confortable in my head, I can hear hours without any ears fatigue, I do equalize the TX audio with both radios builtin EQ to make a wide...
Summary: I'm a general class radio amateur. I really enjoy this headset. The frequency resp. is just fine for my needs. The microphone really articulates w/my nasal upper-mid voice. Great. The cousins are extremely comfortable. I'm genuinely impressed /w this affordable tool. I also use the electret condenser model. THANX WILL DIRCK CALLSIGN: KI6POW IN SUNNY SAN JOSE CA.

Summary: Picked up a pair of these headsets based on recommendations from other hams online. The price was low compared to other radio headphones. The quality is first rate and they look like they would stand up to a lot of use. The sound quality from the headphone speakers is very good when listening to SSB, CW, and FM. I also tested them on the computer and found the sound quality for music to also be good.
Summary: Hard to go wrong with these. I have a large head (7 1/2), and must open them to the fullest for comfort. The ear pads are large, and reasonably comfortable. The seal is just OK. The microphone is a little on the hot side, but it does work well. I've never owned a Heil set, but am sure these are a great deal for $45.00. The are well made of decent materials. 5 for value.
Summary: Based on reports circulated around the web ... picked up one of these headsets , cans are very comfortable and I get lots of unsolicited audio reports while using it with my K3 ... completely plug and play after a menu change for the price you cant go wrong ...
Summary: Based on numerous positive reviews ordered CM500 from B&H in NYC, got it delivered by express in just 2 days (Well done B&H!!!). Ordered modular adapter for my Yaesu FT857D from Bob W2ENY the same day. The installation was very simple and I immediately got great audio reports highlighting that distinct DX-punch!! Play with your PROC and MIC GAIN for best results! Overall - a fantastic set that will give you lots of enjoyable QSOs on the bands.
Summary: These were recommended to me by a fellow ham so for $45 I was not out a lot of money. I have used them on my Icom IC 7410 with great audio reports. They are comfortable to wear for long periods of time and have a long cord. They use an 1/8" mic plug so an adapter is necessary to use them with 8 pin mic connector.
Summary: I've used these with several radios. They are electret condenser mics and you must have a polarizing voltage at the mic + to use them. Or, they do come with an adapter/battery case to use with other rigs. The transmit audio is clear and articulate, and the headphones are very comfortable for long periods of use. The price is certainly right. Try a set on your rig.
Summary: After reading a large number of recommendations on the Elecraft reflector, I bough the Yamaha headset on-line for $48. They sound good and are very comfortable to wear for hours if needed. And, best of all, there are no expensive adapter cables needed (a la Heil), plugs straight into the K3 rear connector.
Summary: I use it with my Flex 3000. I tried the Heil, but it was just uncomfortable. Got the CM500 on a recommendation from a friend. What a bargain. I optimized the audio for the headset when I first set it up, and never looked back. I am very satisfied with the pileup-busting performance that this pair provides for me.
