Ultra Fine Quality
Japan is one of the undisputed leaders in extreme quality electronics manufacturing with strict adherence to the details. 2Q-lites are all meticulously hand crafted with 100% Japanese components and tested to our rigid specifications in JAPAN. They have been used for many years both on-stage & in control rooms by NHK, Japan’s National Broadcasting Company, other commercial tv/radio broadcasting outlets and in 2-way radio. They have the Classic traditional appearance. Neither mass production nor inexperienced low cost labor is used. Over 50 years of microphone element & headphone sales and manufacturing knowledge goes into each 2Q-lite. Our microphone elements, the ‘heart’ of all microphones, have been sold for over 50 years to most major American, Japanese and European microphone and headset suppliers.
All polymers used in molded components are Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). A tough rigid plastic used especially for automobile parts, building materials & computer cases. It performs very well under a wide range of temperatures.
Why Spend For High Quality?
It’s a known fact that high end Stereo and home theater systems with low to medium grade speakers cannot achieve outstanding performance. Most of us know that using a very high quality radio with a poor antenna results in lackluster performance. If you want to experience the maximum capability of your modern high tech radio, your computer when gaming, using VOIP , listening to music or on-stage with a wireless microphone, you must use earphones and microphones that are designed for the most desirable acoustics possible.
Highest Clarity Receive Audio
Chart below indicates typical Frequency response for the headphones. The Dynamic Headphone speakers are 36mm in diameter and use Samarium Cobalt magnets. They are known to be one of the strongest rare earth magnets available. Very resistant to demagnetization. Head band is spring Stainless steel. Only 4mm (0.15″) wide and 1mm thick. Holds headset firmly in position without fatigue. Special air permeable, soft black molded micro cell foam ear cushions. Headphones are mounted on a ball & socket swiveling system. They rest lightly on your ears for hours of comfortable use. As they do not cut all external sounds like muff style products, you can still hear other important local sounds. The Wide Frequency Response of the Hi Definition earphone speakers will make received signals sound brighter and clearer than ever before. You’ll think you have a new receiver, new computer or stereo system.
Exceptional Transmit Audio
Gooseneck microphone boom uses a unique flexible memory material. Stays put whichever way you position it. Boom swivels 280 degrees allowing use of microphone on left or right side of head. Microphone housing has a removable cover for easy access to element. Either an electret or dynamic microphone element is available. Both are very wide response. A back plane Electret microphone which is noted to be more rugged than traditional electret element construction design methods. Our dynamic element is also ruggedly constructed and designed for very wide response. Typical Frequency response for the our dynamic and electret microphone elements are shown. The wide audio response is perfect for today’s modern radio transmitters having user adjustable audio equalizers. Set your radio for narrow or wide. Audio reports will be outstanding.
Comes with two 3.5mm mini plugs installed. Mono for the microphone and stereo for the head phones. Head phones are indeed separated electrically, an important benefit for radios having left and right channel features. Listen to VFO A on one ear and VFO B on the other. Works with most available radio adapters from other suppliers.
Wiring emerging from head phones protected by soft rubber boots.
