Reviews: Heil Sound HB-1 Boom Arm

Jigar M. - 05/11/2020

A very durable, solid, sturdy arm indeed. The reach is also very good at around 2 to 2.5 feet.

Most of the installation is easy, except for the cable management. It turns out that in order to put (conceal) the cable through the arm, you need to know how to remove and reinstall an XLR jack on a cable.

Thus, the PL2T model will be better because the cable management doesn't involve the highly technical step of removing the XLR jack and then attaching (soldering) it back to the XLR cable.

Overall, a good boom arm with a good reach and build quality. However, installation, especially, the cable management requires highly technical knowledge and a soldering machine. I'd recommend the PL2T arm from Heil in case you don't want to perform a surgery on an XLR cable.

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
