The BM-10 is an extremely lightweight, articulate-sounding headset that is ideal for DXpeditions, mobile, and general rag chewing. One of the features of the BM-10 is the ability to easily flip the boom arm from a left-mount to a right-mount configuration. The speakers used in the BM-10 are extremely sensitive and don’t require much AF gain from the transceiver. The frequency response is 60 Hz- 12 kHz with very low distortion. The ear pads are replaceable acoustic foam.

The microphone audio for the BM-10 series terminates into a 1/8” mono plug while the headphone terminates into a 1/8“ stereo plug (1/8” to 1/4” adapter included). The inline Push to Talk (PTT) terminates in a 1/4” mono plug. The cable features a built-in PTT button with a convenient clip on the back to keep it in place.

The use of the AD-1 series mic adapters allows simple interface with popular transceiver inputs. The adapter cable has a 1/8” female input jack for the headset microphone. The 1/4” female connector that exits the adapter is the PTT line for the Heil foot switch or hand switch.

Please see our Adapter Selector to find the right adapter cable to connect the BM-10 to your radio.

Some state laws prohibit the use of headsets while operating a vehicle. Please check with your local regulations and restrictions prior to usage of this product while operating.

The BM-10 Dynamic headset uses a dynamic microphone element designed specifically for amateur radio use. This 600 ohm dynamic element will work with most amateur radio rigs including Kenwood and Yaesu. An AD-1 Adapter is required. To find out which AD-1 adapter will work with your radio please consult our Adapter Selector. Note: To use dynamic mic elements on vintage radios (requiring a high impedance input of 10k to 30k ohms) will require the use of an XT-1 impedance matching transformer.
The BM-10 iC, with our iC electret microphone element, was created for use with ICOM radios. This element utilizes bias power in ICOM radios which addresses low-gain issues that arise when using dynamic elements. This element must be paired with the AD-1-iC or AD-1-iCM adapter. The iC adapters have no internal DC blocking capacitor so bias voltage can be passed allowing the iC electret element to operate. The iC element has an operating frequency response of 35Hz – 12kHz. To find out which AD-1 adapter will work with your radio please consult our Adapter Selector.
