While flying is a visual experience, hearing is one of a pilot's most valuable assets. A high-quality headset is essential for communication with air traffic controllers and other pilots. In addition, headsets play a critical role in protecting a pilot's hearing during flight. Since noise levels in most unpressurized aircraft can be harmful, pilots should always wear hearing protection.
Lightspeed headsets offer unparalleled quality and value for the discerning pilot. With active noise reduction (ANR) technology, Lightspeed headphones can filter out cockpit noise caused by engines and air movement. Weighing in at less than 16 ounces, the Lightspeed aviation headset is a great choice for both long and short flights.
For pilots interested in the latest technology, all Lightspeed headsets offer Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Listen to music from your MP3 player or other device while maintaining a constant communication link. When audio is transmitted from an airplane's transceiver, the Lightspeed headset will automatically reduce the sound level of any music that is playing. This ensures that pilots will always be able to hear important radio communications with crystal-clear audio.
