Can any one make a recommendation for a headset to use on an iPad Pro for remote operation. I have been using the small headset provided from Apple but all the reports on my audio are poor. I am using a 6400M. Thanks in advance. Mark VE3IB

Mark I used a Logitech H800 BT Headset with my iPad.  With EQ adjustments I've gotten good audio reports with it.

Likewise, use a LT BT headset - good battery life.

Use the Blue Parrot 450 Noise canceling Mic/Headset
Works Great as a BlueTooth Headset
Can use it in a noisy environment like Starbucks
and use IOS SDR with noise canceling and not
Have background noise at Starbucks get transmitted
Over Airways !!!

Wish Flex would allow this BT Headset to work
With the Maestro

Best Noise Cancellation BT Mic/Headset out there

Truckers use them on noisy roads as well !!!!!

I have gotten good results with the standard iPhone wired ear buds unless the location was noisy.

I have also used a Logitech Bluetooth headset with good results.

In any case, any mic will require spending some time tweaking the TX EQ, Hi/Low Cut, and Mic Gain controls.

I have found that on the IOS app I need to run significantly less gain than the “red zone” limit in order to avoid distortion.

If you are looking for an up market bluetooth headset with good audio and excellent noise cancelling, my preference is the Jabra Evolve 75.

When using any bluetooth headset it is important to either use 5ghz WIFI or your mobile phone data network to avoid co-interference that can occur between 2.4Ghz WIFI networks and bluetooth devices, resulting in (subtly) choppy audio.

Hi Mark, I recently got my ipad working for the first time and as soon as I released the potential of the ipad I wanted a headset that would work on both my ipad and laptop that was in expensive.

I went for a 'Arama A600MP Cell Phone Headset Binaural with Noise Canceling Boom Mic' and have been very happy indeed and recive great audio reports.

On my ipad I had to turn off the +20db mic boost, I could not get it to sound any were near right until I did that. Once the +20db boost was turned off I could then quickly EQ the mic via XVTA running in FDX monitoring my own TX audio.

Good luck
