I have not used the Proset+ on the air, but did look closely at it this
weekend in Dayton. The Proset+ is quite different from the regular proset.
One major difference is that it includes both the HC-4 and HC-5 elements
which you can select via a tiny slide switch on the mike boom.
Another difference is that there is a toggle switch that puts one ear piece
out of phase.
The last difference is that the headset overall is much larger and, in my
opinion, more comfortable.
With either headset, the new 'stretchy' elastic / cotton covers for the
earpads are excellent and make both more comfortable to my ears.
The cotton covers are priced too high at $6 a pair, but they do make a
distinct improvement in comfort. I anticipate that it will reduce the
amount of sweating that was normal with only the standard 'leather' pads.
