I have been a ham radio operator since the 80's, and have always looked for the perfect microphone. I have literally tried hundreds. Some had excellent audio characteristics, but were uncomfortable, heavy or poor audio response.
I have several Bose headphones, and my favourite are the QC 15 for listening to music. So, the perfect combination for a headset microphone would ideally be the Bose QC 15 with a boomset microphone element. I didn't know there was an adapter available, until I saw in a recent world radiosport championship video, a group of 4 German girls operating with BOSE QC 15 headphones, with a boom mic element. How was this possible, I thought to myself.
After a bit of googling, I came upon this site, and promptly ordered a HeadsetBuddy. It arrived this morning, and I promptly went about testing it out with my QC 15. First was Skype on my MacBook Pro, using Skype test a call. The audio quality was absolutely stunning. I then went to my radio station and hooked the cable up to my Flex-5000 ham radio and 1KW amplifier. After a bit of fiddling with my radio's EQ settings, the transmit audio quality is fantastic !!!! Suffice to say, I no longer need to buy and try anymore headsets or microphones, I have found the perfect solution with the HeadsetBuddy.
I will be recommending this product to my ham radio friends around the world, and I will be buying a second one as a backup. The great thing is that it is a multi-purpose solution to lots of cables, microphones, headphones and headsets. With this product I can use one device on my ham radio station, laptop, tablet and smartphone.
PS. If you wanted to buy an aircraft Bose headset, they run at around $ 2000.00. With this HeadsetBuddy and an existing QC 15, you achieve the same at a fraction of the price.
PPS. I suggest advertising in the QST magazine, the largest ham radio magazine, with about 150 000 ham radio enthusiast subscribers.
Thanks for bringing this to the market.
