I have a Heil Pro Elite headset I would like to use with my Flex. I visited a couple of ham dealer websites this morning and could not see an adapter for it to my Flex 6300. I’m sure someone else must be using this headset and wonder if I’ve have to a make one or there’s one available on the market someplace. I assume the “Default ProSet HC6” is the proper profile to use? Thanks for you help.
I would start with the Proset 6 setting and tweak it from there to fit your voice and what you like to hear. It's OK to listen to what other hams say about your audio but there are many many variables on what is heard on different radios.
Pro Set Elite - 6 contains the Heil HC 6 full range dynamic broadcast element. The HC-6 is designed for commercial broadcast applications; the -3dB points are fixed at 100 Hz and 12.5 kHz, with sensitivity of -57 dB at 600 Ohms output impedance (centered at 1kHz). Using new dynamic technology, the HC 6 response can be equalized to match just about any requirement, from full range commercial broadcasting to serious contest and DXing.
it is the "yellow" adapter.. here is a link to AES where I got mine:
I want to thank everyone for their help. I had an adapter I had gotten someplace for the headphone part of the headset, so I used it. I love the way you can tailor the received sound using the Flex. It has helped a great deal in some of the CW contacts I've made. Particularly, when the elements are sent with very narrow spacing. I can eliminate the "run together" feeling of the sound. I suspect this may have something to do with my hearing problems. I use hearing aids. I am told the type of hearing loss I am experiencing is due to the fact I was exposed to loud sharp noises – gunshots, explosions, and etc.
