Has anyone else tried the Antlion ModMic 4.0 uni-directional (noise cancelling) microphone? 

If so, please post your review.

There is a great solution for the Bose headset called the ModMic. Its a boom microphone that attaches to an adhesive magnet mounted on the headset. It has a great uni directional microphone suitable for SSB. With the EQ in a K3 or other modern transceiver it sounds as sharp as anything else out there. 

I have been using the ModMic with a Bose QC25 headset in a few contests. The proper ModMic model has a uni directional element (not omni directional) that cancels much of the surroundings which makes it suitable for contesting, even in multi op environment.
