Large dual headphones boom mic with HC-6 element and Heil Phase Reversal System.
The Pro-Set-Elite-6 represents the very latest design in "headwear" for the ham radio operator. The channce to operate hands free is important these days where a PC and keyboard are tools that are often used in the ham radio station. QRZ being one of the PC programs many of us use. But it is not only the convenience factor. The acoustic quality of the headset is superb, both for transmitting and receiving.
Heil Sound were the first to bring professional sound to ham radio. Their famous headsets have been in use by hams around the world, contest groups and DXpeditions. These headsets have used the world famous HC-4 and HC-5 inserts. Time marches on and with the new DSP transmit audio features in many ham transceivers, Heil have now introduced the new HC-6 insert that is presented in the new Elite headset. This dynamic element has been specially designed to suit ham radio with good output level and a response and electrical characteristic that allows your ham DSP system to produce really beautiful audio to suit your needs and your voice. Using a 0.82 inch diameter Myler diaphragm, the -3dB points of the wide frequency response are set at 100Hz and 12.5kHz with a sensitivity of -57fB at 600 Ohms centred on 1kHz. The new HC-6 element can be equalised to match just about any requirement.
One of the exclusive features of this headset is that the exclusive Heil Phase Reversal feature allows the user to move the signal acoustically, which creates a spatial widening of the sound field that makes it easier to 'see' a signal inside a pileup while removing listener fatigue during prolonged use. The headphone's speakers fold up for easy transportation and storage.
Competitors have attempted to copy or adapt hi fi and motor sport headsets, but these have all failed. Heil are still the only manufacturer of this class of products, headed up by an active ham operator who is also the designer. It's a great investment for your station.
One of the big advantages of a headset with boom microphone is the freedom it gives you when you are operating. You are totally hands free and no microphone stand to get in the way when you are writing or filling in the log book.
