Tried to reply direct, but got bounced.
Got one of those Pro-50MX's (30$) a few weeks ago. I took the boom mic
retrofitted with Heil clamshell (free at Dayton) and HC-4 (30$) in about
(somebody on here or mentioned that it would work, and it did). Hearing
is good, used it for WPX last wkend. Talks very well too. Plus side:
mic boom is longer
(it doesn't get eaten). I don't think it's as comfortable as a Heil,
hurts my ears with my glasses on after about 3 hours, but for 60
bucs.......not too bad. I also replaced the small phono plug with a big
one (just for convenience to accomodate my rig). Can't find the mic
specs, think I threw them out in the excitement if they were there, but
it looks like a little speaker with a clear platic cone (1/2") and a
small coil in the middle (non-engineer, biologist description). The mic
does not look like something I would use to drive a rig, and the swap was
easy enough. Getting another to hold an HC-5 wouldn't be a bad idea.
You would probably have to put on a longer cord if you wanted to wear
them while u climbed ur tower though........
