Pilots on a budget will be hard pressed to find a better quality, affordable headset than Pilot USA's entry-level 1161 model. This passive headset delivers 24 dB of reliable noise reduction and weighs just 15.9 oz. Its foam ear seals and padded, air/foam headband ensure a comfortable, fully customizable fit for hours of "just right" wear. Additionally, its independent, dual volume controls allow users to obtain that perfect sound level for outstanding stereo audio. The 1161 also features a noise-cancelling electret mic with a half metal/half flex boom for perfect placement. Its unique color scheme with one black/one grey earcups and chrome accents makes it as visually striking as it is durable. An exceptional "no frills" headset from the experts at Pilot USA.
For the price this is a great back up headset. It is comfortable to use and blocks out most noise. I plan on getting another headset in the near future.
Great Headset for the price
Even after reading the positive reviews I was still a little weary of buying this headset, but after my first couple of uses I am extremely happy. Not only is this headset lighter but the audio is much more clear than the name brand headset I was renting from my flight school.
Super clear and light weight!
I read a review saying the feedback was clearer than the other big names ones used at the flight school— I’d say that’s definitely true. It’s also super lightweight and durable, and the lifetime warranty is what sold me as well. My flight club is going to be ordering more of this, the price is too good.

The design..materials. .& workmanship are excellent. It has crisp & clear sound. Sounds better than other more costly brands.
Really good product. The only thing is that I'm unable to register the product for the warranty.
