[CQ-Contest] Headsets

I have this headset.  It came with a leatherette pouch for travel.  I take
it on Dxpeditions, and have adaptors for Yaesu, Icom and Kenwood radios.

The boom broke so I sent it to Bob Heil for repair.  Works great again.

At Hamcom in Plano this year I saw a new one for sale from WB0W.  I wish I
had purchased it as a backup.  If I see another for sale in the future I
will definitely get it.

I have a couple different Heil headsets. The one I like the best is the Pro
Set Quiet Phone. This particular product has a switch for in phase or out of
phase and another switch that quiets all the background noise in the shack.
This function also has a small but efficient amplifier in it which helps me
hear considerably better. This unit also comes with a boom microphone which
is convenient too. But here is my dilemma. Heil no longer makes this product
and depending on what is wrong when it is sent in for repairs, some of them
cannot be repaired as a Pro Set Quiet Phone and get repaired without the
quiet phone features and sent back. (Not without consultation I might add)
Does any other manufacturer make a headset with similar characteristics like
the Pro Set Quiet Phone? I really like these features.
