Product Description

The Pro Micro Single Side is a very unique high performance single sided headset.

The headset is outfitted with the HC-6 element. Designed for commercial broadcast applications, the -3dB points are fixed at 100 Hz and 12 kHz with sensitivity of -57 dB at 600 ohms output impedance (centered at 1 kHz.)

The microphone audio for the Pro Micro series terminates into a 1/8” male plug while the head phone terminates into a 1/8” stereo with adaptor.

To adjust the headset simply bend the stainless steel piece that is inside the black padded headband.

Mic Gain
Adjust the mic gain while watching the ALC meter. Adjust so that the audio peaks just fill out the ALC scale and do not go beyond the ALC scale.

The 706 speaker works all the time. To turn that off simply plug an empty 1/8” plug into the front headphone jack.

Set the Vox gain controls for proper activation.

Carrier Balance
If your rig has carrier balance it acts as a type of mic tone control. It is best to listen to yourself in another receiver as you transmit into a dummy load. You are actually moving the carrier + or - 200 Hz above or below the center of the filter network, which causes your microphone audio to change its tonal quality.

The use of the AD-1 series mic adapters allow simple interface with popular transceiver inputs. The adapter is 6” long and has a 1/8” female input jack for the boomset microphone and a 1/4” female that is for the PTT (push to talk) line for the Heil foot switch or hand switch. The 1/4” stereo plug goes into the headphone jack on the transceiver front panel.

All Heil Pro Micro Boomsets are shipped with foam windscreen that fits over the microphone. The windscreen does not change the frequency response, just the breath blasts directly into the microphone.

Some state laws prohibit the use of headsets while operating a vehicle. Please check with your local regulations and restrictions prior to usage of this product while operating a vehicle.

  1. Very good "Mobile" headset 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2016

    I had the Heil "Traveler" in the past, but was disappointed by it as the PTT switch quit on my and it rattled a lot. I thought I would give Heil another try with this Heil Pro Micro single. I love it. The Traveler had a plastic covered earpiece that was not very comfortable to wear on long trips. The Pro Mini has a fuzzy, soft, cloth covered earpiece that it a bit bigger than the Traveler. I have no problems wearing this one. The audio reports are great (using a Kenwood TS-480HX) and it was very easy to hook up. I just ordered the Heil foot switch to go with it. (mounted on the dead pedal) I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good mobile headset.

    The only drawback over the Traveler is that it can only be used on the left ear. The Traveler you could switch.
