Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, the Senal SMH-1020CH Communication Headset Kit offers you a way to listen to your computer audio and record/broadcast your voice at the same time. In addition to a SMH-1020CH headset, the kit also contains the Senal SMH-HM3X connection cable, and the XU-1648 interface. The latter is an audio interface that operates at 48 kHz/16-bit and connects to your computer via USB.
Place the dual-sided headset atop your head, and you'll have a way to hear audio and broadcast your voice. You'll note the SMH-HM3X cable has a TRRS 3.5mm plug, an XLR plug, and a 3.5mm plug. The TRRS plug goes into your headset. The XLR connector goes into the XU-1648 interface, as does the 3.5mm TRS headphone connector.
Now, you'll be able to broadcast your voice over your computer via the interface, and you'll also be able to hear all your computer audio over the 3.5mm connection.
Senal SMH-1020CH Communication Headset (Dual-Sided)
Designed for wired and wireless communications alike, the Senal SMH-1020CH is a dual-sided communications headset for use in TV or radio broadcast settings, as well as sports applications and behind-the-scenes theater environments. First, you'll notice its deep, padded ear cushions, which offer not only comfort, but isolation and noise-reduction in noisy scenarios. Behind the ear cushions, 40mm neodymium drivers give you a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, as well as an expansive dynamic range.
The microphone supplied with the SMH-1020CH is a cardioid dynamic capsule, designed to minimize pickup of off-axis sound while capturing your voice clearly and intelligibly. It sits upon a durable gooseneck that can be rotated 180°. This configuration can be used on the left or right side of the SMH-1020CH. Additionally, a switch is built into the gooseneck that automatically mutes the signal when it's swiveled into the vertical position; thus, to mute your microphone, all you have to do is flip the gooseneck into the upright position.
The SMH-1020CH interfaces with a variety of cables that offer compatibility with many major wired and wireless systems, such as Telex and PortaCom. You can also use this communication headset with broadcast consoles, mixers, and computers. Simply plug your separately-available, corresponding cable into the SMH-1020CH's twist-locking jack, and you're good to go. The headphones are also collapsible, making storage and transportation a cinch.

Senal SMH-HM3X Cable for Senal SMH-Series Communication Headsets
The Senal SMH-HM3X is a replacement cable intended for use with SMH-series communication headsets. It can also be used to augment your headset's versatility, giving you the ability to plug into a broadcast console or mixing board.
At one end, you'll find the 2.5mm TRRS connector and corresponding locking jack. This twists into your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH communication headset, establishing a secure and reliable connection all the while.
At the other end, you'll note two different connectors. One is a 3.5mm phone-type plug, while the other is a male 3-pin XLR connector. These two connections allow you to monitor incoming signal while simultaneously using the microphone to communicate with your cast or crew. The SMH-HM3X is part of a whole ecosystem of SMH-series cables, all of which let you swap between the pin-outs of different communication and broadcast systems with ease.
