    Having trouble finding this on Clear-Com's website. Does anyone have a pin diagram for headsets? Trying to replace the missing connector on a handset.

    Jands is merely the Australian dealer; it has no control over the content on Clear-Com's website.

    While we're on the subject, I believe I've read on here someone saying that Telex owns Clear-Com or that they merged. I see nothing on Clear-Com's site to indicate this. Telex did buy RTS several years ago. Clear-Com, along with some other familiar entertainment-industry brands, is owned by the Vitec Group of the UK.

    It is precisely because they want you to buy it that they publish details like pinouts.

    Without pinouts, you can't connect to a piece of gear.
    Without a connection, gear is useless.

    If you consider that Clearcom etc is used for say the olympics amongst other mission critical applications. If something breaks at say 3am, you can ring the factory all you like, no one will answer. (Let's disregard the fact that if you are at this level you have the mobile numbers of the people you need to talk to if they aren't seconded onto the gig as more direct insurance).

    Oh and Jands do list the pinouts for their gear, but you generally need to look up the manual for it.

    Note also that this thread has been dormant for most of 2009...

    Additional question here...

    I hacked together a headset adapter to allow the input of my iphone/ipod/galaxys5 etc audio into the clear com headset. I basically soldered the 3.5mm stereo plug to onto pin3 and pin4 of the clear com headset cable. It works somewhat. I can listen to the clear com conversation normally if nothing is playing via the 3.5 adapter (ie ipod etc..) or vice versa, I can not hear both. It seems as though the 3.5mm cancels out the clear com audio.

    Any suggestions.

    Thanks
    DM

    What's your pinout between TRS and XLR exactly for this "hacked" adapter?

    Perhaps I need to make a new one for the samsung galaxy s5. It looks like it might be TRRS. I thought I saw somewhere it's pin out was Left, Right, Mic, Ground.

    TRRS is pretty much what's been used since the original iPhone.
    I doubt the headset mic will play nice with a phone that's expecting an electret in a headset and when it sees a dynamic is going to find the level fairly low...

    As a note, you're connecting to amplifier outputs together here and that's normally a bad idea.
    An ideal amplifier has zero source impedance. Driving into zero impedance means no useful level output and high risk of damaging one or both amps...
    While neither of these amplifiers is going to be that ideal, it's still a bad long term move...

    What's the behaviour you think you should be getting out of the system with both connected?

    TRRS Pinout is
    Tip Left
    Ring1 Right
    Ring2 Shield
    Sleeve Mic

    Im working up something similar to hook to a Clearcom Tempest Beltstation,
    Ive Got my TRRS going
    Tip,Ring1 to Pin 4
    Ring2 to Pin3
    Sleeve to Pin 2

    Heaphones work but mic instantly feeds back

    Basically Ive got a Producer who's an ex-police and the big muff doesn't output a loud enough signal, so working on a couple of alternative option for them.

    Id love to run an EM6 cable but I am having trouble finding documentation on the E6 portion of the equation, bias voltage and all that.
