  • For helicopter pilots - single U174/U plug and a coiled cord

  • The set can also be used as standard headphones - one can just switch off the NoiseGard feature and enjoy!

  • The new extremely soft leatherette earpads add to the comfy feel
  • The new silver-brushed surface gives the set a sleeker, more exclusive look.
  • Individual volume controls for each ear.
  • 10 Year Warranty
