Selecting the Right radiosport Headset

To assist you with selecting the RIGHT HEADSET for YOUR APPLICATION, we build three primary categories of headsets.

Listen-Only Headsets

These headsets are ideal for CW Ops or for Ops that may normally use either a Desk Mic, or a Studio Style Desk-Boom-Mic. They work especially well for either CW or SSB .

These headsets feature 32 Ohm Drivers (except our Classic Radio headsets are 600 Ohm) that closely match headphone volume with normal speaker volume.

Frequency response of 200Hz to 6000Hz means weak signals aren't covered up by high frequency atmosphereic or audio amplifier noise, and the 200Hz low end cut-off provides superb rich voice articulation and excellent narrow passband CW reception.

These phenominal drivers also have low drive power requirements yet exhibit exceptional dynamic range. There's nothing like these headphones. Find out what you've been missing! We offer several different models with feature sets to match your operating style and/or conditions.

Desktop HF Fixed Station - Boom-Mic Headset - The new "Standard"

The ideal headset for today's modern rigs capable of Dual-Watch/Dual-Receive or Diversity Receive, but still the choice for any HF Desktop rig produced in the last 20 years (virtually all HF desktop radios produced since the early 1990s supports Stereo Audio output).

Featuring a second audio channel for these high-end radios plus all of our comfort options you'll want for DX, Contest, or casual operating where you want hands free ability to log, examin panadapter displays, CW Skimmer or other functions such as spotting callers of DX stations.

Equipped standard with an integrated PTT button on the left ear cup, convenient in case you move away from the operating position and can't reach your foot or desk hand PTT switch (see our PTT options under theNew Products link on our home page).

These headsets also feature a 3.5mm Auxillary Stereo In/Out Jack on the right ear cup, perfect for a second op logging or for monitoring an additional radio while operating.

With our new 6-Pin to 5-Pin miniXLR adapter you can also support even your handheld radio with our industry standard coil cords for popular handheld VHF/UHF radios.
