The Ultimate in Sound Clarity

The leader in in-ear Headsets now has a FAA certified (TSO'd) model.
If you don't require FAA TSO certification, you can save money with the non-TSO'd version here: Clarify Aloft Headset.

TSO Version Complies with FAA and/or airline requirements for TSO Certification in commercial airline cockpits.

PRO PLUS: This is the Clarity Aloft Pro Plus (Pro+) which has a more robust microphone boom and is more durable and rugged than the regular Clarity Aloft Pro Headset.

Clarity Aloft Aviation Headsets have merged the most advanced technologies from the fields of hearing science, aviation communications, and performance audio into a streamlined design.

The Clarity Aloft headsets employ patented Comply(TM) Canal Tips, composed of soft viscoelastic foam, the same foam tips used in advanced hearing aids. More than simple earplugs, these foam tips provide full spectrum noise reduction: 35-45dB of attenuation. This advanced technology has been lab tested to prove that viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) is superior to active noise reduction (ANR), especially in the speech frequencies, precisely where clarity of sound and hearing protection is most needed for aviation communications.

  • FAA C-139a TSO
  • Superior clarity of sound
  • Lightweight, but rugged enough to meet military specifications
  • Better noise reduction than ANR in the speech frequencies
  • Cool and comfortable
  • Hygienic replaceable foam tips, compliant to each individual ear

  • 3 Year Warranty

Clarity Aloft(TM) aviation headsets are the result of their commitment to the highest standards in aviation communications. These headsets contain the most technically advanced components brought together from diverse experts in audio communications.

The Earpieces
The Clarity Aloft earpieces are used to improve both hearing protection and speech communications. Each earpiece includes a miniature speaker that reproduces speech signals from the aircraft audio system. The replaceable compliant foam tips (Comply(TM) Canal Tips) which attach to the earpiece contain a pathway for the sound to travel from the transducer to the ear. Used by the military for helicopter pilots, both components of the earpiece, the transducer and Comply Canal Tips, have been tested, used rigorously and meet the most exacting military standards.

Replaceable Foam Tips
The superior seal is achieved with our patented Comply(TM) Canal Tips, which are used in high-end hearing aids. These viscoelastic foam tips provide the highest level of hearing protection available by any method including active noise reduction. (ANR) The outstanding noise reduction (35-45dB) in the speech frequencies between 400 to 4,000 Hz results in unsurpassed clarity of voice communications. Resembling foam earplugs, the foam tips are so comfortable because they are compliant to the shape of the ear. Considerable sound science history backs up their impressive performance. Technical specifications on our viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) are included in the Owner's Guide.

The Noise-Cancelling Microphone
The noise-canceling microphone used in the Clarity Aloft Headset is a high fidelity noise canceling Electret Condenser microphone with performance optimized for speech frequencies in extremely high noise environments. Stage performers and musicians use this same microphone because they must insist on the highest level of sound reproduction.

Music Input
The Clarity Aloft Stereo Headset is also equipped with a music input in the volume control box that will accommodate most music devices through a 1/8 inch plug. Be sure that the volume of the music device is set at minimum before connecting to the headset.

Low-Profile Headband
With its flexible boom arm, this featherweight band is the same one sported by stage musicians and professional performers the world over. Balance and comfort are the result of its elegantly simple design. The mic boom can be easily re-positioned for eating and drinking during flight without disturbing your earpieces.

Clarity Aloft Pro Plus Includes:

  • Headset
  • Carrying case
  • Owner's Guide
  • 6 month supply of Comply(TM) Canal Tips (6 pair)

Frequently Asked Questions about the TSO Version
Why is TSO Certification being required for headsets used in commercial aircraft?

A major airline manufacturer was concerned about the lack of standard specifications for headsets used in their aircraft. This manufacturer issued a requirement to users of their aircraft to use only FAA TSO certified aviation headsets.

How have the airlines responded?
Several airlines, including Southwest and UPS now require the use of only FAA TSO certified headsets in their aircraft and most other airlines are expected to follow that recommendation.

Why is TSO so important?
To certify a headset to FAA TSO standards, the headset manufacturer must demonstrate the consistent performance of the headset over a wide range of conditions including high altitude, temperature extremes, electrostatic discharge immunity, and varying electronic environments found in aircraft. Only headsets that are designed to meet these standards consistently and are made in an FAA approved facility receive this TSO certification. The FAA also performs ongoing inspections of the manufacturing facility to ensure that the highest standards are being maintained. This extensive testing provides assurance to the pilot that the headset will consistently perform in the very demanding environment of commercial aircraft.

Why is the Clarity Aloft Pro Aviation Headset better than an ANR TSO headset?
FAA "Information to Operators" cautions operators about the use of Active Noise Canceling Headsets in airline cockpits (InFO 07001 Dated 1/5/07) "While Active Noise Canceling technology can have many beneficial effects, electronic attenuation of important environmental sounds and alarms may occur." Because ANR circuitry is effective primarily for low frequencies and pure tone sounds, the FAA is concerned that use of ANR headsets may prevent pilots from hearing important warning sounds such as stall warning horns, gear up warnings, and other audible alarms. The Clarity Aloft Aviation Headsets eliminate noise by blocking unwanted noise from being heard, but do not selectively reduce warning sounds and other important environmental sounds.

Clarity Aloft Pro Plus... good, but not great.

  • By FurloughedAgain from Grapevine TX USA on Friday, January 18, 2019
  • Pros: Lightweight, great sound quality, great noise reduction, TSO
  • Review: This is my second TSO Clarity Aloft and I had hoped they would improve the Pro Plus, but they didn’t. The weak point of these headsets is the thin wire that goes from the headband to the earbud. Over time, even if you are careful not to twist when inserting, they will short out. This is in start contrast to competitor Quiet Technologies whose Halo headset uses a 50 cent sound tube with the speaker actually in the headband. Much more robust design. Furthermore, it is possible for the ear tips to unscrew and become lodged in the ear canal. The comply tips don’t have a stem or anything to make them easy to extract when this happens.

Terrific headset. Very pleased

  • By A Customer from Austin TX USA on Tuesday, April 24, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: Excellent sound quality. Very light. Easy to wear. Comfortable for long flights. I'd buy it again.

I like it, but way over-priced and case is too big.

  • By A Customer from Felton PA USA on Wednesday, February 21, 2018
  • Pros: Weight and comfort
  • Review: I went from a telex 850 to this.
    I like not having a headset rest on top of my head.
    I like that it's light.
    I don't like the lack of blue tooth.
    One reason I bought it, was that I wanted a smaller headset to carry around. Unfortunately the way it folds(or doesn't), makes for a large case.
    This product is a small metal frame, two wires with ear plugs, and a boom mike. It should not cost anywhere near what it costs. It probably costs about $20 to make. Add in a little value for being TSO'd and it should cost no more than $200. Also, at its price point is should have a lifetime warranty.

  • By A Customer from McLean VA USA on Tuesday, January 16, 2018
  • Pros: Light weight. Clear
  • Review: Light weight. Passive noise reduction. Perfect for long haul wear for "not so easy to hear" ATC area.

I would buy this Headset again.

  • By Kalvin 121 pilot. from Saint George UT USA on Thursday, November 30, 2017
  • Pros: Crystal clear sound. And light and comfortable.
  • Review: This Clarity Aloft Pro plus has met all my needs and expectations. I fly Jets and for the past two months that I?ve owned the headset I've not looked back. Sound quality is great. It's very light and comfortable but constructed durable.

Keeping headset

  • By James from Scottsdale AZ USA on Wednesday, May 24, 2017
  • Pros: Light and sound quality
  • Review: Very light for wearing on all flight leg lengths. Easy to keep left ear open during pushback and engine starts with quick earplug install before taxi.

Ehhhhhh.

  • By A Customer from Algonquin IL USA on Monday, May 16, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: Not as comfortable as I expected. The wire over the ears is still not comfortable after 2 months of solid use. Also, the fact that they are not convertible for easy use on the right side of the cockpit and that they don't fold flat isn't really too impressive. Not a bad headset, but not quite what I expected for $750.

Great. More sturdy than regular Clarity

  • By A Customer from Atlanta, GA on Friday, May 13, 2016
  • Pros: light, very quiet, cheaper than ANR
  • Review: I had the regular headset for 5 years and almost 3000 hours. It finally got to worn out and I went with this version since my airline requires TSO'd headsets. Just as comfortable as the regular Clarity with a reinforced mic boom(the part that broke on my old one).

    If it's too tight or too loose around the head then carefully bend the frame as desired.

    It's almost uncomfortably quiet. It takes a little getting used to since it's even more quiet than any ANR set out there.

    To save on buying the foam earplugs, wash them with your whites in a lingerie bag and let dry thoroughly when they need replacing. They're 85% or so as good as new when you do that.

I like it

  • By Jack09 from Turkiye on Thursday, February 25, 2016
  • Pros: Lightweight, easy to carry.
  • Review: I've already had Bose A20. I honestly can say A20 is much better for noise cancelimg and voice clarity. But after a couple hours it gives pain. It is very heavy. That is why I search for lightweight headset. I bought this product. I choose this model because of what I read from comments that mic is problematic. I've used CA for 2 mounts. I am very happy with it. I'll not go back A20. Noise canceling and voice quality not good as A20, but good enough for me. Easy to carry. Lightweight. While listening music you can get outcoming calls clearly. It doesn't cut he music.
    I recommend to everyone.
    I forgot to mention that I'm B737 Captain.

Over price headset

  • By Samuel from Toa Alta PR USA on Wednesday, January 07, 2015
  • Pros: Not heavy like regular headsets
  • Review: I bought this headset thinking it was going to be comfortable. Well I was wrong, the metal frame makes my head skin sore. The cables that go from the metal frame to the ears are very fragil and a lot of care has to be taken when storing them.

Clarity Aloft Pro Plus... good, but not great.

  • By FurloughedAgain from Grapevine TX USA on Friday, January 18, 2019
  • Pros: Lightweight, great sound quality, great noise reduction, TSO
  • Cons: Fragile wires to speakers, ear tips may dislodge in ear canal.
