I was not aware that Heil discontinued the HC-4 element! The Proset 4 has
been a favorite of mine for many many years.  It looks like the shelves
have been pick clean of any remaining elements and Proset 4 headphones so
obviously many others like it as well. There are also ads from people
looking to purchase HC-4 elements. Coca-Cola changed the formula in 1985
and it was not well like.  They brought back the old shortly later. 
Please bring back the HC-4!

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?
