HM-10XD: The popular HM-10 had been redesigned with our new HC-5X (wide) and HC-4X (narrow) elements mounted on an acoustically tuned
chamber to reproduce the popular narrow HC-4 response for DX work and wide smooth response of the HC-5 elements. This allows
users to operate a full range mic for everyday rag chew and instantly switch to a narrow punchy DX element for DX work or to just punch through pileups. One mic that covers all your needs in communications.
The new HC-5X (wide) is ideal for every day, articulate speech audio anywhere you need good, full-range audio. A +6 dB rise at 2,500 Hz, the frequency right in the middle of the human voice pattern, brings great articulation to your signal. The low-end response rolls off at 300Hz.
The -3 dB point of the HC-5X is set at 300 Hz to 8 kHz with the tuned peak being +6 dB at 2,500Hz.
The Heil HC-4X (narrow) element has been designed for serious DXers. It places a +10 dB rise at 2,500 Hz, which is right in the middle of
the human speech range. The result is not a pretty sound, but it cuts through. The low-end response rolls off at 600Hz. The -3 dB point of the HC-4X is set at 600 Hz to 6 kHz with the tuned peak being +10 dB at 2,500 Hz. The HM-10 XD microphone has been designed for speaking no further than 2” from the mic. The windscreen provided will cut down on breath blasts caused by the close range, but will not alter the audio. The HM-10 XD microphone comes equipped with a microphone clip and a foam windscreen.
A CC-1 adapter is required to interface with your transceiver.
To achieve optimal tailored response for the HM-10 XD you will need to increase your mic gain 3-4 dB over a standard dynamic element.
