Worse sound quality than my cell phone

TJ the small business owner, B&H Photo
14 October 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this product to conduct and record tele-seminars, because it works with a cell phone and has a boom mic. Hence figured I could get better sound quality. I did not. In fact the sound was so bad that I got multiple complaints from other participants and had to change back to using my Bose...

Great headset

VE3TMT, eHam.net
4 October 2015
  • Summary: I use the Koss SB40, same headset but less money. Excellent comfort, great audio on receive and the TX is very clean. I use them on my FT950 and good reports of great audio. You can by three of these headsets for the price of one of the other well known brands, but are no where near as comfortable...

Use with Elecraft K3 ham transceiver

George K5KG, B&H Photo
20 July 2015
  • Excerpt: The Yamaha CM500 headset is ideal to use with the Elecraft K3. It is plug-n-play, and the audio quality on both transmit and receive is excellent. And you can't beat the price, especially when compared with the Heil headsets.

THE headset for ham radio

SV2NRU, B&H Photo
3 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought the headset for my Icom 7400 radio. Works great. Excelent speakers and a very good mic. I think they are better than the heilsound and much cheaper. The quality is not good but still a great headset for the price.

Great Headset/Boom Mic

Rick, B&H Photo
16 April 2015
  • Excerpt: The headset has replaced my high dollar Heil headset. Both headsets work fine although, the Heil weighs a ton and gets hard to wear after a little time. The Yamaha headset is light weight and has great audio both receive and transmit. regards, Rick

  • Summary: On my 4th pair of CM-500's since 2011, use them off and on with the Yaesu FTDX-5000, FT1000D and FT-1000MK5..the microphone went bad on 3 sets...seems the pivot point is where they might break down...tricky to fix, so I didn't mess with it...I use W2ENY adapter , works great..
