    This is the one I use.  I got it from Radio Sport.  I amazing reports on it.  Not only that, it is great for just listening to your iPad or Android device.  He put full range drivers in the headset so you get full fidelity audio.  I use mine all the time now. 

    Dave Bottom, sells them.  I don't see it on his web site yet, but you can contact him at http://www.arlancommunications.com/products/amateurRadio/.

    Ask him for the RS55SL.

    I use a Logitec headset with boom mic and get great audio reports. Also use the Apple earbuds with good results. RX audio range is great for weak signals. Ive tried using my Jabra wireless earpiece, but the audio is real tinny and people report its missing lowend, no matter how i adjust the eq. I just orderred the Airpods and am waiting to get them. I like the wireless capability. Will see if they work as good as the wired version that comes with the iphone. Will report back after i get them.

    Earbuds don't work for me. They don't fit in my ears.

    While not inexpensive, it is incredibly comfortable.  I actually used it on the Maestro 1/2 of WPX and loved it.

    Hi Ria.  That looks like a really nice solution: what is the model of your headset, and are you still pleased with it?

    I stopped using it because I rarely get on iOS. That said it's just "logitech bluetooth headset."

    It's not noise canceling. So now I use an Antlion ModMic 5 and a bose headset.

    Ria, I bought a set like yours. I am running SmartSDR on a PC remote and can't get the microphone to transmit and work with the Flex 6700. Can you send me your Flex settings by email. Thanks!  rguidry at na5q.com

    Roland - I'll post them here because I want everyone to see them (knowledge benefits all).

    SSDR must have "PC" set as the mic device. It's in the P/CW panel. 
    In Windows you should have the mic set as the default communications device.
