Few things can distract a crew more than static in a coxswains headset, and we understand how frustrating headset failures can be (Tens of thousands of dollars of equipment and months of training compromised by a mic gives out during the row up to the start). We offer an number of solutions to keep your gear functioning as it should.
Headset repairs: From Thanksging 2017 until the end of Feb. 2018 we are offering a "by one, get one free" deal on headset repairs. See how tough our repairs are.
BNC Repairs. We have an extremely rugged repair for the older, BNC style headsets. Our plugs are both soldered and clamped using a compression fitting (not a wire damaging crimp), and then are loaded up with really great strain relief. We are so confident in this repair that we warrantee it for the life of the headset. We are only able to repair damage to the plugs of mics, not problems that occur up in the top or boom end of the mic. For help diagnosing your problem (ie, is your static in the plug or the boom?), give us a call or send us an email.
Cost: $45 per headset.
R2 repairs. We are now very confident about our repairs on newer R2 style (black rubber plugs) headsets. Want to double the value on your investment on your gear? Our repairs on your headsets will way outlast the orginal plugs at a fraction of the cost of new gear.
Cost: $45 per headset.
S2 Adaptors: Introduced 7 years ago, the S2 allows you to plug a new-style R2 headset into an old-style, BNC coxbox. This economical solution belongs in every coach's tool box and will give you increased flexibility when you encounter headset problems. Cost: $27 each.
With all the bad news about COVID-19 we wanted to be part of some good news. Up until September 1st, 2020 we will offer a free coxbox headset rebuild for each charging station in a new product. For crews not using coxboxes we will install one free mount for each 5 paid for. So that means if you buy a case or cabinet that charges 8 coxboxes, we will credit you for 8 free headset rebuilds (no expiration date on these repairs) and if you buy a case or dock that charges just performance monitors (NK, ActiveTools, or CoxMate) pay for 5 charging mounts and get the 6th one free.
Sharing headsets is just plain yucky. Dig out those static filled old headsets and let us rebuild them for you so that you can give one to each coxswain and stop the sharing.
