    This headset isn’t worth the money. Not only will it not work with a PRC 152 it has only passive noise reduction “No Battery” “Volume very low and will not transmit” PRC 152 works with my MIL spec hand set and headset” “some of the plastic are dry rotted”. Also it states on the headset “Evaluation Unit Limits of use apply” as the next model came out with a battery.

    I tried to contact Venture Surplus for return but have not heard from them at all. Multiple email sent the day after receiving headset. First order from Venture and will be my last.

      We responded to you within 2 hours of your initial inquiry and never heard back from you. We offered a generous solution despite the headset being used for an application (PRC 152) it was not intended for and the item not being eligible for return.
