Is this head set good for background singing?

Is this head set good for background singing?
Asked by: Terry
I would not use this for vocal performances, I don't think the microphone would provide the quality of sound. We use the headsets for sports broadcasting and they seem fine for that.

What are the inner and outer diameters of the ear pads (headphone cushions)?
Asked by: Louis
If you are in need of replacement ear pads for the Yamaha CM500 headset, users on ham radio web forums have noted that Koss UR20 ear pads are compatible. http://www.koss.com/accessories/cushions/ur20-ear-cushion You can also use Garfield Headphone Softie Earpad Covers (B&H# GAHSBK) which are available in a variety of colors.

question

can this be used for broadcasting football games on radio?
Asked by: Lee D.
We use these headphones and mic with a soundboard for live-stream sports games. One caution(!) Be extremely careful with Phantom power. We use the 1/4" Tip/Sleeve adaptors (the mono, not stereo ones) with the output from the included mic preamps with Phantom power OFF!. This works well for us.

question

where and how to use the bias adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm not sure what the bias adapter is although I owned this set. Maybe it's the little battery box that you use for the mic cable. Either way, I found this headset, despite some good reviews I saw, to be substandard. I couldn't get the mic to an acceptable level. The audio quality was poor. If you just want something for gaming and audio quality isn't important, this might be ok. I literally gave mine away and bought the Audio-Technica BPHS1. It's a professional set and not made for the mini-jacks of a computer but you could always buy adapters. The audio quality is not as good as my Sony Studio headphones (they have no mic) but it's so much better than the audio from the Yamaha set.

question

Can you use this with a cell phone for conversations in loud environments?
Asked by: Anonymous
It is not designed to use with a cell phone as there are two jacks. One is for the head phones and the other is for the mic. In addition, you have to use the adapter that requires two AAA batteries to power the mic. The headset is not a noise canceling type, so even if you were able to connect to a cell, I do not think it would do well in a loud environment.
