Telex PH-88 Overview

The Telex PH-8S single-sided headset is specifically designed for Sony cameras, to provide reliable communication through carbon camera intercoms, in television studios or remote production locations.

The PH-8S comes with a sensitive, omnidirectional carbon microphone, optimized for the spoken voice frequency range, and compatible with Western Electric-type intercom circuits. The microphone is mounted on a fully adjustable swiveling boom that positions on either side of the head.

The adjustable headband for the headset is nicely padded, and fits comfortably for extended wear.

The PH-88 is ubiquitous in broadcast control rooms and live production trucks, and for good reason. Good for all-day use, high quality speaker and microphone, durable, reliable, easy to fix and adapt for at-home use. $180 may look like a steep price for this, but it's the least expensive piece of pro production gear, and the one that gets the most use. Well worth the price.

Great Headset!!

This headset works great. The sound quality is perfect and I have no complains. Bought the headset before a string of live sports hockey broadcasts I was booked to work out of a mobile production truck. They were plug and play and worked great out of the box. I have done 4 shows with them now and the sound quality is great. Plan on using this headset for years to come. I would highly recommend to anyone working in a live sports, mobile truck unit environment. They would also work great in a studio environment.

Very fast shipping

This item does not work for commercial aviation. It would have been helpful if that information was included in the item description in your website. I discarded the original packaging when I got the item therefore I could not get a refund for this item.

Great Product!

can a telex ph-88 headset connect to an I-phone?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not with the standard 4 Pin XLR cable. You may be able to re-wire or add an adapter, but you may still have impedance issues which will lower audio quality.
