Failing ear sushions

I wished the ear cushions would last longer than a year with light occasional Sunday usage. SMH! Tried to file a claim and square trade never got back to me. Haven't been using the headset due to COVID so gave up. Will have to order new ear pads cause these FAILED.

These work great with remote camera locations. They block out all of the noise that is around you when you are filming. Would highly recommend them!

A great headset for noisy environments. Extremely comfortable being worn for long durations. More durable than many less expensive headsets.

Will buy again in the future..Happy

We are a Performing Arts High School. Several performances each year. These headphones allow us to clearly and easily communicate with backstage, spots, sound booth and orchestra pit. The headphones assure a smooth running, flawless show. Your sales people were very helpful. I will definitely come back for future auditorium needs.

This is a great headset that is ideal for live performance. It has clear sound and talking even during the loudest performances. The ear muffs are comfortable, but are not long lasting under high use conditions. Overall, this is a great headset that I would highly recommend.

i am a semi-retired, professional sports camera operator, out of the boston/hartford market. i have done over 2000 shows of varying levels. little league, to the world series and stanley cup. i was at low third for 20 years at fenway, and right handheld at the bruins for the same. i quit the bruins about 5 years ago, when i could no longer stand the noise level (PA generated) at TD Garden. and it's not just there. small arenas like Quinnipiac, Holy Cross, etc. seem to think loud equals exciting, thus, louder equals more exciting. one day at providence college, the truck happened to have these heads sets. i loved them immediately, as the noise cancelling was fantastic. they sound good too. both to me, and to others when i speak. i asked a techno-geek where i could get a pair. he sent me a link. my husband saw the link, and got me them for christmas. 2 shows in...maybe I'll unretire

....and with these you get a GREAT headset. This was the second round of headsets I ordered after being displeased with the build quality of another brand that I had previously ordered. These are quality, solid built, headsets and the work perfectly for their intended purpose. I bought them for camera operators to use in a house of worship setting. The dual sided earphones offer ample sound isolation for our camera operators. The room noise level peaks around 90db and the camera operators have no issue hearing the director. Great Buy, will buy more in the future as needed!
