ANR cheap
by Steve Sanders from Orange, ca 

Pros: Not much
Cons: ANR is not worth the money on this headset
Review: This headset is just a average unit. Save your money and buy a better ANR unit or just get a PNR for $200.

The comfort is the same as my AvComm AC900 if fact I would say it's a AvComm knockoff.

Wish I had tried it before buying...

Good for the price
by Roy from Soldotna AK USA 

Pros: Price
Cons: Poor mike, short battery life
Review: Noise canceling works fine. When transmitting the mike puts a terrible side tone into the headset.

This is the 2nd I purchased
by Bjorn from Burnsville MN USA 

Pros: AA battery, easier and less expensive too replace. Has one of the highest noise reductions on the market.
Cons: After extended use it does tend to feel too tight (1.5 hours or more).
Review: I recently got my pilot certificate and had first bought one of these head sets for my training; it's half the price of many ANR headsets yet performs very well. I purchased the 2nd for my wife now that she'll be flying with me; very much worth the money. Another reason I purchased this is because the battery pack is for AA's, not 9 volts.

great headset
by Jeremy from Jacksonville FL USA 

Pros: very clear comms, comfortable, great price for ANR
Cons: location of stereo/mono switch
Review: I am very impressed with this headset. The ANR works very well and I like the fact that I can turn up the volume in either ear individually. The only thing that I dont like is the picture shown has the stereo/mono switch on the outside of the battery box for easy access. The one that I received has the switch on the inside, under the battery cover and it's very difficult switch between them. Other than that, I love it. I would have given it 5 starts if it was not for the location of the stereo/mono switch.

Owned it for two years now
by T140V from Turlock, California  

Pros: Good sound and transmission
Cons: Cords need to be reengineered
Review: The cords have both failed again so I emailed Rugged and they blame the problem on the cord hitting my shoulder! I'm still trying to figure out why that would be my fault. One of the headsets I don't even wear, that one is for my passengers. I gave up on them and made my own shielded cords for both headsets. I used 24 gage wire which is much stronger. I slipped heat shrink around the bundle and it looks great and works much better than the cheap wire they built it with. Oh yes they sell a kit to fix the problem but its the same cheap wire. Also I wish the ear cups were just a tad deeper.

Don't be fooled.
by Ron L from Seattle, WA 

Pros: None
Cons: Wasted time, wasted money, and a wasted flight fighting to be heard by air traffic control.
Review: I read the reviews, and all these testimonials. I bought a pair of the 950 ANR headsets based on them. I was happy that I could obtain a anti noise headset at a fair price. Then came the first flight with them... And the earphone opposite the one with the microphone boom was completely innoperative. You'd think they could be bothered to ops check each pair of headsets before they left the factory, evidently that's too much effort. The sound from the one functioning earphone was harsh and the microphone would wait till after the first word before transmitting over the intercom. From my experience I have to say these headsets are absolute crap, and you would be better off buying an entry level David Clark headset instead of wasting your hard earned aviation money on garbage like this.

Good and Affordable headset
by Bjorn from Burnsville MN USA 

Pros: Affordable, efficient, work well
Cons: Foam pads around ears not as comfortable as more expensive headsets
Review: I really like this headset. I had looked at getting the $600 Lightspeed Sierra ANR headset because I had tried that one out and really liked it. The foam pads on the ear muffs are not as comfortable as the Lightspeed, however for half the price I was willing to deal with that small inconvenience until I earn my private pilot certificate. If you have the money go for the Lightspeed, but if you're on a budget these are well worth it.

Review: I purchased the Rugged Air RA50 ANR headset which performs very well at with a great price point. One of the inner ear seals was not staying attached, so I contacted and they had me call Rugged Air and they are mailing out a replacement earseal set today. Great follow-up and customer service by both Rugged Air and

Pretty good but not the best
by T140V from Turlock, ca 

Pros: fit, comfort, clarity
Cons: cord is weak and needs to be of better quality
Review: Now That I have owned the RA950 for six months I can can give you a pointer about the battery life. Be sure to unplug the headset from your audio system when you shut down. The battery will disconnect automatically and save the life of it.
The only problem I've had is the cord at the base of the headset is made of a very thin gage wire. I have had to resolder the wires to the inside of the earphone by pulling slack into the earphone and stripping back the outer sheath exposing more fresh wire. The wire's break right at the base and I have fixed two headsets this way. They need to use stronger wire at that spot due to coiling the wire into the carrying bag they give you with this product.
Other than that {which might seem extreme to some}I think the RA950 is great for the half the price of the more common brands.

by Dennis from denmark WI USA 
Pros: Pirce
Cons: Size
Review: Great headset for the price.  Headsets turn on when plugged in and off when pulled out so no need for a switch just have to unplug them.  Battery life seems ok (to early to tell).

Best bang for the buck!
by T140V from Turlock CA USA 

Pros: Very quiet and good fit
Review: Wore it from Missouri to California in two days and it fit great. Performance was more than expected. No problems with batteries. I used the same 9V for almost two days and never pulled it out.

Exellent For Price
by Chuck from Toledo, OH 

Pros: Comfort, audio clairity
Cons: Battery life
Review: I have owned this headset for a year and a half and will second all the comments about comfort. It weighs a bit more than others but with the gel seals it isn't a factor. Audio is crystal clear and ATC has never complained about my voice clairity. Battery life is a bit short with no auto off, but this is a minor inconvenience and with the money you save you can buy lots of batteries! It did take a bit of trial and error to get the headband adjusted so it fit "just right"

by Miguel from Syracuse UT USA

Still a great headset after 6 months..
by Bob Shettel from Redstone, CO 

Pros: Comfortable, clear sound, low price
Cons: 9V batteries last about 5 hrs.
Review: I've been using for 6 months now and this headset has taken me through training into passing my checkride. Excellent comfort, ANR as good as my CFI's Bose, and the price can't be beat. The most negative thing I can come up with is that it does go through the 9V batteries and I wish the battery indicator was a little more informative. That said, the hundreds of dollars of savings over the bigger names will buy a ton of 9V batteries.

I just purchased another of these same headsets for my wife and she seconds the comfort comment. I would recommend them to anyone.

I would buy this product again.
by Laurie from Spotsylvania VA USA 

Pros: Great noise reduction, comfortable
Cons: short intermittent humming, usually just a short distraction. Does not affect transmission
Review: Met expectations. I was concerned over the low price and wanted quality. Headset is comfortable, I am a student and my longest flight so far has been a little over 2 hours

Excellent ANR headset at reasonable price
by Bob Shettel from Redstone, CO 

Pros: Comfortable gel ear pads and top head pad, crystal clear sound and great noise reduction.
Cons: None yet...
Review: Purchased these a month ago and they have proved to be a very comfortable headset with superb passive and active noise reduction. The only addition I would like to see would be an on/off switch, but I'm a control freak who likes the added control.
