Finally a good flying day

  • By Zara from Cairo NY USA on Sunday, November 04, 2018
  • Pros: Lightweight and comforable. Sound was good.
  • Review: The headset was very comfortable and the sound was good. I only tried it once since there was not many good flying days. I was satisfied with the quality.

Comfortable, good sound quality

  • By A Customer from Las Vegas NV USA on Tuesday, August 14, 2018
  • Pros: comfy, reasonably quiet, great sound quality
  • Review: Solid headset, very comfortable, great sound quality. Fits even a small head well. Used by an 11 year old-loves it. Tried several mid-level ANR headsets first, and they all got returned due to poor sound quality.

good enough

  • By A Customer from AR USA on Wednesday, July 16, 2014
  • Pros: sound reduction and comfortable, and the extra plugs
  • Review: For the price this headset is good enough at what it does.I find the sound quality to be good and it quiets enough of the noise I wanted to listen to my mp3 player and it does that fine. I don't use the phone jack so I can't comment on that. However, the headset/headband doesn't expand very much and is BARELY big enough. I also dislike the microphone boom. it doesn't swivel/pivot up and down so its difficult to move out of the way or store away.

great with one caveat

  • By FHG from New York NY on Friday, March 28, 2014
  • Pros: good sound and noise suppressing. Folds up nice with a case
  • Review: I have been using this headset for a few years now and overall it has met all my expectations flying a GIV.
    I rate it highly on clarity and initial comfort.
    My only issue is they do not make gel earpads for it.
    The foam pads compress down over a period of time and it begins to hurt my ears. I have replaced the pads twice already once under warranty and again for a $50 crack. I am fed up with that aspect as they are starting to bother me again. I am replacing this headset with one with gel earpads....too bad as I like this unit except for that aspect.

Superb bang for the buck!!!

  • By Ryan from Mason City IA USA on Thursday, October 31, 2013
  • Pros: Value, comfort, American company
  • Review:

    I've had two 25XT headsets for five years, and just bought a 3rd set for rear passengers. I fly a C172, and they do a tremendous job of blocking out sounds other than intercom/radio sounds. I'm not vastly experienced with other brands of headsets, but they beat the heck out of the Dave Clarks I've used in both sound and comfort. Personally, I don't see a need for active noise reduction in my application.

    Comfort is a plus too; the ear cushions are made of memory foam and a very soft leather/vinyl-like material. I try not to wear a ball cap when using the headsets, as it tends to make the top metal cap button uncomfortable after 45-60 minutes or so. Same thing with sunglasses that aren't designed to hug my head/ears (Oakleys). With proper glasses though, I can wear them comfortably for at least 4 hours.

    The plug-ins for phone and music work fine. Yes, bluetooth would be nice, but not truly necessary for me.

    I had to buy new ear cushions at the 5 year mark - the cushions in both headsets I had wore out at the exact same time. They came apart at the seams in the fabric, although the memory foam was 100% intact. I have had zero problems with the headsets otherwise in 5 1/2 years of service, and that's a big reason why I bought another set.

    I'm extremely pleased with the product and the value, and will likely buy a 4th set if I ever need one.

Good Quality & Great Sound

  • By hookedonflying from Haverford, PA on Tuesday, June 11, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: Pros:
    - Overall quality
    - Sound quality (excellent)
    - Volume knobs for left and right ear cup. Each ear cup can be set to it's own volume
    - Color
    - Comfort
    - Adjustable tension for headband (easy to change)
    - Thick electrical cable that connects to aircraft's sound system
    - Carrying case

    CONS:
    - Overall large profile; earphones stick out considerably more than Bose or Lightspeed headsets

    I gave it a 4 simply because of the overall large profile. It would be nice if they could slim down the design a bit without sacrificing any of it's performance or features.

Good Product, Good value

  • By Timothy from Gettysburg PA USA on Tuesday, October 16, 2012
  • Pros: The mike boom is in a good location. Doesn't block side vision.
  • Review: I was looking for a mid range priced headset that was both comfortable and functioned well. For me the Telex 25XT has delivered on both parts of my search. I had planned on using this headset for my passengers but will continue to use for myself.
