Does not work properly with Headphones on.

  • By Shelley from morrisville NC USA on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Pros: Nice Fit, See only what is intended to be seen.
  • Cons: Loose ANR as Arms cause ear seal to break
  • Review: It works like a charm... My instructor saw it the first time and was impressed.

    The whole excitement went to the dumps when I wore it inflight. I got David clark ANR headsets and the arms of this device causes the seal (gel pads) of the headphones to open up enough that the effects of the ANR are nullified. It is like I am wearing Passive headphones.

    I wish they had the option to put an elastic band or something like it so the comfort is there while the ANR headsets do their job right.

Truly view-limiting!

  • By Bill from Mechanicsburg PA USA on Tuesday, September 24, 2013
  • Pros: Comfort
  • Cons: Viewing area extremely small and different between the two sides
  • Review: After hearing from a CFI about Blockalls, when I misplaced my Foggles I ordered a pair. Yes they are comfortable and they truly block light, but the open areas for viewing the panel are extremely small. I don't know if the pair I received was defective or not, but I'm not going to pay for another pair to check! For the left eye, there is only a tiny area in the bottom inside corner of the lens that is not covered by opaque black paint. It is much smaller than the area open for the right eye, although that is also very small. I wear progressive lens eyeglasses, and although the Blockalls are fairly comfortable atop those glasses and beneath the headset, the area open for viewing was far too small to be useful for me. I cannot use them for IFR training since I can see so little out of the open areas. I ordered another pair of Foggles instead.

Not good

  • By Aaron on Monday, September 03, 2012
  • Pros: not bulky
  • Cons: blocks the instruments, doesn't block side windows
  • Review: I have to tilt my head up to see all the instruments, which is very uncomfortable. I tried to compensate by scooting my seat as far forward as I could and seating the glasses higher on my nose but I still have to tilt my head up.

    Also you can see the side windows out your peripheral vision. Not good.
