  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Great value for the price. I use this for a figure skating judging system and have seven people talking on an a communication system. The headset is very comfortable. You have to make sure the mic is in front of your mouth and pointed in the right direction.

  • 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

  • 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.
