Yaesu MD-100A8X Microphone Overview

The Yaesu MD-100A8X is an amazing sounding dynamic microphone considering that it can be purchased on special for around $200AUD. Audio reports seem to be comparable to the Heil microphones costing many times the price. It is stylish and very solidly built and it features tone adjustments and even scan functions when used with compatible radios. This is perhaps the best value base mic available for this price and on air comparisons constantly show that the audio quality is similar to the higher end Yaesu and other brand mics.


Superb mic but no longer available.

I have always been an audio fan & in the past used audio processing equipent however with this mic with flat respose & no filters selected & used with a transmit bandwidth of 2.8khz no external processing is needed. I get unsolicited excellent audio reports and am asked what I am using.. If you can find one, buy it!


Superb Audio !

Faultless audio quality for a very reasonable price. I love the reports I’m always getting from contacts all over the world about the clarity of my audio. Well worth the price.

The Yaesu MD-100 is a really nice sounding mic and for around $200 AUD it represents great value. I have used many mics over the years and the Yaesu is up their with the best of them. I always get great audio reports even with the processor flat out.

I love this mic. It’s strong, it looks great, it sounds great and it’s well priced. I use it with a FT-840 and although it doesn’t have the 5V on pin 2 to utilize the filters it still produces great audio and is a pleasure to use. Even though it is one of Yaesu’s budget end mics it still produces a brilliant audio quality. A great little mic and a great addition to anyone’s shack.
