With soft headpad cushions, adjustable headband, and on-the-head weight specs of only 3/4 oz., the 5x5 Pro III provides true lightweight comfort. Single receiver features single pliable, soft eartip receiver which provides better speech intelligibility than an earmuff-style headset in quiet to moderately noisy environments. High quality electret mic has flexible boom which can be worn on left or right side. Can be worn without headband by clipping to eyeglass bows or after market custom earmold. The headset is approved for aviation use under Federal Aviation Agency TSO C57 and C58A. 

Receiver and Eartip
A magnetic receiver element is used. Sound is conducted from the receiver to the ear via a flexible vinyl tube terminated with a removable soft plastic eartip. The eartip fits in the ear canal of the wearer. Three eartip sizes are included with the headset to accommodate various ear canal sizes. 

Microphone and Amplifier 
A noise-canceling, electret element and microphone amplifier are used. The amplifier receives power from the aircraft radio via the microphone plug. The amplifier output level is adjustable through an opening in the side of the amplifier housing. (Adjustment by a qualified avionics technician is recommended.) For best performance the microphone should be positioned at the side of the mouth and close to the lower lip. 

Wearer Options 
The headset features a detachable headband and pivot assembly. The pivot may be rotated over a 180-degree range, permitting the microphone boom to be positioned on either side of the head. Alternately, the headband may be removed, and the headset may be worn on eyeglasses. An eyeglass adapter kit is supplied with the headset, and can accommodate wire or plastic eyeglass bows. The headset may also be worn with a custom ear mold (not supplied). The microphone boom may be positioned on either side of the head when using eyeglasses or a custom ear mold. 

Comfort 
The headband consists of two stainless-steel springs covered with soft, polypropylene webbing. The springs are bendable to adjust the lateral pressure on the head. AISO7 the distance between the springs may be adjusted for optimum load distribution and wearer comfort. The headpads are mounted on adjustable stainless-steel sliders. The headpad cushions are soft polyester-urethane foam, and are adhesive-backed for easy field replacement.

With Headband: 4.3 oz (121 g)

Works great; replaces my 20-year old Telex

  • By Jay from Alpharetta GA USA on Thursday, December 29, 2016
  • Pros: perfect replacement for my old headset
  • Review: All good; my original telex finally gave up on me - it was 20 years old and served me well. This one should last until I retire!

Not a reliable product...

  • By Harun from Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday, July 13, 2011
  • Pros: Fits fine, good sound quality both ways
  • Review: I have received my first 5x5 about one and a half years ago. Right after warranty expired mic stopped working. I ordered a new one. After about 1 month of use this time earphone went off. If you want to use this product always have a back up headset in your flight bag.

  • By Stan from Charlotte NC USA on Monday, May 02, 2011
  • Pros:
  • Review: the gear is fine, just what I expected ... What really impressed me was the response and customer service that I received from mypilotstore.com ! You have a 5 star operation !

Lightweight

  • By Wim from Dirkshorn Netherlands on Wednesday, June 02, 2010
  • Pros: Light weight and easy wear.
  • Review: A light weight headset for long hours use. But it lacks some more earpieces and only comes with 2 sizes. Furthermore the gain is set at max so that in the a/c the volume heas to turned very low which is not acceptable in a heavy jet. There is an instruction about adjusting the gain but this is very limited and does not say how to access the gain.

Make your own decision - just read this.

  • By Don from Cupertino CA on Monday, April 19, 2010
  • Pros: Works fine - when it's new
  • Review: Telex 5x5 ProIII Headset: Worked fine for 1 1/2 years in a B737. Failed one day without warning. Went to Telex website, and sent an e-mail requesting instructions for service (it's out-of-warranty). They never replied. So, I took it apart myself. One wire was broken from the speaker assembly. The wire was MUCH too small a gauge - smaller than it needs to be. There was no strain on the wire - it just broke due to vibration (in and out of flight case?) SO - no product support, and weak design. Expect a year and a half....

  • By Rich from Scottsdale AZ USA on Monday, October 12, 2009
  • Pros:
  • Review: The headset is fine for most aircraft EXCEPT the Citation 500-560 series. The headset is hard to hear with standard radios. Either too loud or not enough. A Telex 850 even though more expensive works much better. 

Great headset!

  • By Marc from Kalispell MT USA on Monday, February 23, 2009
  • Pros: Sound clarity, light weight
  • Review: The only reason I'm rating this headset as a 4 instead of a 5 is that the earpiece lacks in fit. A custom earpiece is definitely required for max performance. Otherwise, I'd recommend this headset to anyone looking for a quality, reasonably priced, light weight headset.
