Nice ANR headset
Purchased mainly due to reasonable price. Only used couple of times so far on short one and half hour duration flights, but it's been comfortable and good noise reduction, also been informed transmissions loud and clear. Wiring on a 20-yr old ANR headset finally gave out and this one seems to be a good replacement.
Well worth the price
One month using in 8-10 flights, I am very glad to have this headset. My original trainer set was decent, but did not have ANR. This new feature makes a world of difference! I am closing in on my Instrument check ride and wanted the assurance that I could clearly hear and reliably communicate with ATC so they could hear me. This headset delivers at a VERY reasonable price. Where formerly I might have calls prompting controllers to call, “say again, read-back coming in weak,” I have not had that happen in the past month. My in-cockpit communication is crisper, as well. Two down-side “cons” worth noting: 1) uses a 9-volt battery (had to buy a package, none on hand in my house); and 2) the toggle switch for “On/Auto” is an old school style lever switch. I guess if the life is long (advertised at ~25 hrs) then the 9v is okay, and if the lever switch is reliable and doesn’t inadvertently switch to “on” in my flight bag then we’re okay. Overall, I can’t believe the improvement in hearing and speaking that this headset provides. Features are great, aside from the couple of design “cons” noted above, and I highly recommend to pilots looking to move up in the headset market but NOT spend $500-$1100 doing it.
Great service and product!
A plus product and service. This headset is my second pair of Sound Silencers ANR.
So for I really like them, I have only flown once since I received them . Thanks Jim
Bought the passive set during training and loved it. Bought the ANR set after getting PPL and love it more!! This is such a great buy!!
