    Excellent lightweight headphones especially for women

    5

    I asked for these headphones over 7 years ago as a present to use for a variety of reasons: PC video gaming, amateur radio operating, music listening and working with voice recognition software. I've used this headset both on my PC and on a variety of ham radio models (Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood) with great success. The quality of the audio and frequency range response has been extremely good. The only headphones I've worked with over the decades that have been better have been professional headsets that are far more expensive. I didn't need that kind of rigor for what I was doing, but did need to be able to pick out weak voice signals out of noise for my ham radio work, and wanted a wide frequency range response for the gaming and music listening. I chose to not have full over-the-ear isolation on purpose, and this headset works well in that regard. For much of my ham radio operations I need to hear a little of the ambient discussions going on around me while I work the radio. This headset quiets the surrounding noise sufficiently for me to hear what I need to hear without being completely deaf to my surroundings. As a woman, I love the lightweight fit as well. This design doesn't give me the pressure headaches some of the larger, heavier headsets often cause. I haven't had any problems with durability over the years even though this headset has traveled quite a bit with me. The only structural issue I'm having now after 7 years is the foam ear pads finally need to be replaced. Otherwise, the design has been sufficiently solid. I really love this head set and am very glad to see in recent listings the price has slowly dropped. I'd like to pick up a second headset like this one as a spare for travel.

  • Q & A

    WIll this product work with my computer? Will the two plugs be able to be plugged in the headset and microphone jack of the audio card?

    joe

    Thank you for your inquiry. If your computer has both a headphone out and a microphone input this should work.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Does this product have a separate input plug for both the pc's microphone and headset jacks?

    JI

    The ATH-COM2 features a split cable; one end is a 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug for the headphone section, and the other end is a 3.5 mm mono mini-plug for the microphone section.

    Can this be made to work with a cell phone? I bought this thinking I could use it both with my computer and a smartphone, but the separate mic/speaker cables make this a problem. I've found a few adapters online that might do the job, but I"m hoping someone has had some experience with this. I use a Samsung Epic Touch.

    CoachAndrew

    Thank you for your inquiry. I would assume that it is possible with the correct adapter, but I'm not aware of what adapters are available for your phone.

    Does this one have Y- or J-style wires? Are there any J-style Headphones with Microphones out there?

    Anonymous112

    The ATH-COM2 features a durable 4.9' cable with two 3.5mm input/output mini-plugs, NOT "J-Style" connectors. It also comes with one stereo and one mono 1/4" (6.3 mm) gold-plated plug adapters. Unfortunately, we do not manufacture any headphones with J-Style connectors.

    Can't get the microphone to work on the headset. I just purchased the headset on Amazon. I can hear the sound through the headset, but cannot get the microphone to work with the computer.

    If you are connecting the microphone end of this connector to a Mac computer, Mac's have "line-level" inputs that are not compatible with microphones. You would need a USB microphone adapter like the ATR2USB.

    Do you have one just like it with noise cancelling mic and volume control for phone calls? I am an interpreter and this is the headset I use in the booth. I would love to have one exactly like it to work with my phone, but I require a noise cancelling mic and volume control, as well as a connector or adapter for the phone. I could even go without the noise cancelling mic, but i do need a volume control (hopefully with a mute button too).

    Thank you for your inquiry. We do not have a version of this mic that has waht you are looking for we do have sevral earbuds that inclide a microphone and the controls you as for. For example the ATH-CK400i. Please note that none of these are noise canceling.
