Sturdily made using high quality components, our PC microphone adapter allows you to use a vast range of affordable PC (computer) headsets and microphones with your Icom transceiver (with 8 pin round microphone connector). Perfect for rag-chewing, contesting or even making up a hands-free mobile installation.
- 3.5mm jack socket for PC microphone
- 1/4" (6.35mm) jack socket for optional PTT input
- Approx. 15cm long
The following Icom transceivers have plenty of mic. gain and should give excellent results:
- IC-746Pro, IC-756Pro inc. Pro III, IC-7300, IC-7400, IC-7600, IC-7610, IC-7700, IC-7800, IC-9700.
These transceivers have less mic. gain but may give good results if your microphone has plenty of output, or the radio has been modified to improve the mic. sensitivity:
- IC-735, IC-745, IC-751, IC-761, IC-765, IC-781, IC-746 (non-pro), IC-756 (non-pro), IC-7200
All older models (those that have a pre-amplifier in their hand microphone) are very unlikely to give satisfactory results.
For use with microphones & headsets designed to connect to a PC sound card microphone input and fitted with a 3.5mm stereo jack plug. The adapter cable not only connects the audio, but also provides the 5V DC supply required by PC electret (condenser) microphones, sourced from the radio's microphone socket. Simply connect the 3.5mm microphone plug to the corresponding socket on the adapter. If you have a PTT hand or foot switch, connect it to the ¼" jack socket, or use VOX if you prefer. For headsets, just connect the headphones to your radio in the normal way. Wiring diagrams are included so you can use this adapter with almost any 2 pin or 3 pin electret microphone element which will work off a 5V DC supply.
- Sleek lightweight open headsets
- Studio style condenser PC type microphones
- Sturdy full headphones with boom microphones
- Comfortable top-end gaming headsets
- Tie-clip electret microphones for mobile use
Because of the presence of the DC supply voltage, this adapter should not be used for dynamic microphones like the Heil Proset. We also sell the correct adapters for Heil headsets, cables for dynamic studio microphones, foot & hand PTT switches and many other useful items.
This adapter is for the microphone and PTT connections only. Additional adapters may be required for headphones. Not for USB headsets or microphones.
