Flightcom 5DX Headset

Now 5 times as good, our classic 5DX offers new features to greatly improve comfort and ease of use. How does this sound: volume controls for each ear cup, a precision flex boom, soothing silicone gel ear seals, and to top it off - a soft, polar fleece headpad. They look as good as they feel. Nice!

  • Comfort: The wide headband disperses pressure for a better feel. Silicone gel ear seals provide additional comfort and help reduce extraneous noise.
  • Dual Volume Controls. Most people hear better in one ear than the other. With well-placed dual volume controls you can adjust each ear cup's volume as needed. The result? A smooth, even sound.
  • Noise reduction: Keep it quiet with advanced passive hearing protection technology. Silicone gel seals effectively block out sound. Noise reduction rating: 23 dB.
  • No risk:You have nothing to lose with our 30-day refund guarantee. Satisfaction guaranteed from ear to ear.

Good bang for the buck

  • By Mauro VECCHI ARBIT from Miami FL USA on Friday, June 06, 2014
  • Pros: Not so expensive as David Clarks, yet very good product
  • Review: This is a nice value product.

  • By Hernan from Don Torcuato Buenos Aires Argentina on Sunday, July 28, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: Excellent product!

You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars to get a great headset

  • By albert from Cleveland GA USA on Tuesday, April 09, 2013
  • Pros: does exactly what it is supposed to do, without the high price tag
  • Review: I looked at many different headsets before making my decision. Purchasing the 5DX was a no brainer. The sound quality, or the comfort was no worse than than the more expensive brands. It was a little snug at first, but after a few uses it feels great. This is my primary headset. Not a backup, or for guests in the plane. I will buy the 5DX again for each member of my family when the time comes. Great product!!

Great value for price!

  • By German from Capital Federal Buenos Aires Argentina on Friday, March 15, 2013
  • Pros: Price, clear sound
  • Review: Great headset, clear sound and very comfortable once you adjust the tightness by flexing the top band.

  • By A Customer from Brewster NY USA on Friday, September 21, 2012
  • Pros: Comfortable and cancel noise well
  • Review: Second set I bought here. Great for the price.

Works great

  • By Scott S. from West Linn OR USA on Thursday, August 23, 2012
  • Pros: microphone stalk stays where you put it.
  • Review: Meets expectations, good performance for the money.

Nice, solid starter headset

  • By John on Tuesday, August 30, 2011
  • Pros: Affordable, clear transmissions, & comfortable
  • Review: This headset is great for the money. As a pilot in training, I'd rather save my money for flight lessons than splurge on gear, and this headset is perfect for that role. It's worth noting that this headset is uncomfortably tight when new, but it can easily be resolved by clamping the headset around a stack of towels the width of your head for a few days to help break it in; this worked like a charm. Once broken in, the comfort level is pretty good. The gel cushions are a nice touch for a headset at this price level and help keep your head cooler than foam. When I was in the market, it was between this and the ASA headset; after wearing both, this headset is worth the extra money IMO for the added comfort. While I am definitely happy with this headset, if I were to do it over again, I think I'd save up for a Dave Clark headset, but for the budget minded student pilot, this headset is the best choice out there and will certainly serve you well.

5 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Wednesday, April 23, 2014

    Q: Where do I find the foam mouth pieces for the Flightcom 5DX Headset to order? Does the headset come with one?

    A: Yes, the headset includes a microphone cover / muff.  Additional / spare mic muffs are also available here.

  • Monday, January 02, 2012

    Q: I have a 5DX classics headset. I would like to find a female adapter that fits the mic jack (I think it is .206 ") and reduces it to a 3.5 mm male. Do you carry anything like that or have any suggestions on where to buy it? Thanks, Gene

    A: We carry the PC Flight Simulator Headset Adapter which will convert the .206 plug into a standard 3.5mm microphone jack.

  • Tuesday, May 03, 2011

    Q: hello, i'm interested about buying the flightcom 5dx headset, but i need to know how many plugs it has, 2 or 1.

    A: This has two plugs (PJ-068 and PJ-058) that would be found in almost all civilian fixed wing aircraft.  If you are intending on using this in a helicopter, you would need the Fixed Wing to Helicopter Adapter to convert from two plugs to a single U-174/U plug found in helicopters.

  • Friday, July 11, 2008

    Q: do cables come with the headset?

    A: Yes, this headset does come with a Fixed Wing cable connection.

  • Saturday, January 13, 2007

    Q: When you speak into the mic, can you hear your voice in the headset.

    A: Yes, you will hear your own voice.
