Get the Heil headset.  Take out the (new) cartridge and  replace it with a 
HC4 cartridge from a junked old headset.  I did not like  the sound of the 
new cartridge...not enough bite.  So I replaced it with  the HC4 from my old 
Quiet Phone that went belly up.
Although they have some HC4 cartridges at Heil they won't sell you  one.  
They're reserved for "repairs".

Greetings everyone!

My local radio club bought for the club  a IC-718 for use like at Field
Day, Special events, and to loan out to  newbies etc.

It has the stock hand mic.

>From what I  have read in the owners manual it does not have the feature
of tailoring  the mic audio like many of the new rigs allow you to do.

We always  loved the audio passband of like the old Sure 444, and the
Heil HC-4 DX  Dream, ( Sadly no longer made.)

What is out there, Heil, or anyone else  that has a Boom mic headset
combo that has audio passbands like these old  classics? That would work
with this new rig of the clubs?
