Production Intercom Headsets
« on: May 02, 2010, 02:59 pm »
I'm looking for a good headset and found a Production Intercom Headset SMH-310. Does anyone have any experience with these? I can't find any reviews on the product.

Pretty basic headset, they work fine, don't weight too much, are moderately comfortable ...

If you are looking to invest in something for yourself and are going with something from PI, I would recommend the 710.  Light weight and a little more comfortable.  It's too bad the 510 isn't manufactured anymore, those were nice! 

Have you looked at the Clear-Com CC-26?

Thanks for the thread link!

I have looked at Clear-Com CC-26 (it's the standard headset for SMs to buy at my college) but I was hoping for a cheaper alternative. Thanks for the advice!

(This is not a comment on either headset mentioned as I have no experience with either)

Remember a headset is an investment.  My first one I have had for 14 years and it still works (though I did officially replace it two years ago with a newer model).  This is an item that you will spend a lot of time in.  Comfort and reliability are important.  Just something to think about as you make your purchase.
