Surprisingly I have been getting superb audio comments from the Apple Ear Buds that came with my old iPhone...I also use an inexpensive Logitech Bluetooth Headset - again with great results
The point being... your Flex Radio has a great audio equalizer built in to the radio software.

you can adjust your audio coming from your iPad to almost broadcast quality without the need to acquire expensive mikes....
Frankly - due to weight and other travel restrictions, my apple ear buds have become my primary go to headset and mike... they are small and fit in my shirt pocket
Is there a cable for the Radiosport headsets that will work with iOS? That would be preferred.
I love my bose QC25 (especially for air travel, it makes a long haul flight so much more tolerable) but the included microphone is awful. Equalizer or not, it sounds terrible. Besides, I want a boom mic.
Any other recommendations? My priorities:
Noise canceling (active or passive)
ABility to travel (carrying case) would be a bonus.
Audio on HAM sideband is very limited in bandwith! The Flex 6k has great control over receive and transmit audio with the provided equalizers. Why pay a lot for a headset that can never expand your audio listening?
Mine are not wired but Bluetooth. I've been using a Blue Parrott B450-XT headset! It's very comfortable and has great noise canceling performance. I've been getting great audio reports with it and many comment they cannot tell I'm operating remote. This headset is very popular with truckers.
My only request would be if the iOS App PTT was a bit larger and easier to see on the screen. Maybe a custom sizing adjustment? That would really help.
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.
