The Lightspeed Zulu 3 Headset

The most comfortable, most durable headset Lightspeed has ever made!

Lightspeed engineers researched how pilots perceive noise at various frequencies in the cockpit, then developed technology providing focused noise attenuation over the most critical ranges. The result is the Lightspeed Zulu 3, a headset with the ultimate performance profile and industry-leading total noise cancellation attributes.

Quiet
With patent-pending Microport Vent technology and new electronic cancellation components, the Zulu 3 offers improved active noise reduction (ANR) consistency and performance over a deep, broad range of low frequency noise. The magnesium ear cup is superior at blocking out high frequency noise.

Comfort

  • Weighing in at about 13 ounces, the Lightcomfort design includes plush ear seals, exceptional fit and 15% less side pressure.
  • Performance ear seals are tapered to provide a more natural fit, for greater comfort and stability.
  • Plush ear seals provide 20% more surface area than competitors, for a better seal around glasses frames and a more comfortable distribution of side pressure.
  • Larger cup cavity provides 50% more space for your ears, allowing the entire ear to fit comfortably inside, while preventing the pain caused by seals pressing against the edge of the ear
  • Low-pro file stainless steel headband follows the curve of the head for more comfortable distribution of weight and side pressure

Durability

  • New rugged cables built around a Kevlar core deliver more strength and flexibility with less weight than standard cables
  • Nearly 100% of the headset is made from stainless steel and magnesium
  • Magnesium ear cups are both strong and light, while delivering superior high-frequency noise attenuation
  • A low-profile, stainless steel headband provides lightweight durability and excellent cabin clearance.

Clarity

  • The Dual Aperture Disc™ microphone provides greater noise cancellation for unparalleled voice clarity, more intelligible communications with crisp, rich audio
  • Exclusive, user-adjustable mic gain helps balance loud and soft voices in a multi-headset environment
  • Front Row Center™ (FRC), stereo cross-feed technology, and redesigned speakers deliver crisp, rich audio and unparalleled music fidelity

FlightLink for iPad / iPhone
The first in-flight cockpit recording application for the Apple iPad and iPhone. The free FlightLink app works seamlessly with the Lightspeed Zulu 3 headsets to capture and retrieve incoming and outgoing communications. Store multiple flight recordings on your device or computer, and enjoy instant playback of Air Traffic Control transmissions. On the iPad, draw notes on the large scratchpad. Easily toggle from other apps to access recordings and notes.

Bluetooth Connectivity
The new Zulu's full-function Bluetooth connectivity provides enhanced sound quality for voice, music or compatible audio devices.

Cell Phone/Music Connection
An integrated control box auxiliary input offers an additional option for connecting a cell phone, music player or other audio device.

Stereo or Mono
Match audio panel inputs with a quick switch to stereo or mono.

ComPriority
Never miss important radio communications with patented ComPriority which lowers the volume of any auxiliary device automatically during radio or intercom transmissions.

Auto Shutoff
Lightspeed's proprietary Auto Shutoff feature saves battery life by automatically shutting down the headset power when not in use.

Industry Leading Warranty
Zulu 3 is backed by an industry best 7 year warranty.

Includes
Carrying case, cell phone/music patch cords, cord clip, 2 AA batteries, foam windscreen

Lightspeed Zulu 3 versus Lightspeed Zulu.2
New contoured ear seals are designed to hug the curve of the jaw, reducing side pressure to get a more natural fit for more comfort and stability. These ear seals create 30-50% more space for the ear than other ANR headsets — a key feature of long-term user comfort. The Lightspeed Zulu 3 also includes a free taller head pad to ensure maximum comfort and performance on smaller head shapes (redemption instructions are in the User Guide). In addition the Lightspeed Zulu 3 is outfitted with new cables built around a Kevlar core, which are stronger, lighter, and more flexible than standard cables — and have proven themselves on both the Lightspeed Zulu PFX and Lightsped Tango. And, the Lightspeed Zulu 3 will be backed by an industry-best 7-year warranty (the industry standard is 5 years at best).

Pleasantly surprised at the ANR quality!

  • By Kirk from Homer Glen IL USA on Saturday, May 18, 2019
  • Pros: ANR, Bluetooth, cost
  • Review: Bought these to replace old DC headsets in my A36. Took one to work just to try out and compare with the Bose A 20, haven’t switched back to the Bose!! Great ANR and Bluetooth! Curious to see how hold up over time with daily usage. Great bang for your buck!!

Litespeed Zulu 3

  • By James from Aguila AZ USA on Friday, January 04, 2019
  • Pros: Well made, quality product. Phone and mic jac cabling is superb for use in small cramped cockpit. Better priced than comparable headsets.
  • Review: The Zulu 3 headset is well made and looks and feels high quality throughout. All indications are that it will be very durable over the long haul. The mic and phone jack cables are small and flexible, feel very durable and are easy to manage in the cockpit. Communication wise (external and intercom) the Zulu 3 is very clear.

    I have previously been using a Bose A20's headset in my RV6 prior to this purchase. The RV6 is not noted for being a quiet environment (headset required aircraft). After using the Zulu 3 for a month I have switched back to using the Bose A20 headset.

    My observations is that the Zulu 3 has higher clamping pressure on my head compared to the Bose so the Bose is more comfortable. The background noise/sounds with the Zulu seem louder when compared to the Bose A20. In addition, when turning my head from facing straight ahead, the background sound level increases noticeably with the Zulu 3 something I don't detect with the Bose.

    Having read it many times before, I have now proved to myself that aircraft headsets are very user subjective so your mileage may vary.

Pros and cons over Bose.

  • By SDKA from Milton FL USA on Wednesday, January 02, 2019
  • Pros: Amazing cord, lightweight. Active and passive reduction great.
  • Review:

    Well, hard to say. If you’re moving up from a passive headset, this will be the best thing ever. 

    I came over from an older Bose and had mixed reviews. The overall build, materials, and cord seem much more robust compared to Bose. The Bluetooth is included at no extra cost. If I was solo, this would be the headset.

    The cons, hard to adjust often. In my aircraft, crews switch seats and the headset stays. Getting each persons settings on size, volume and mic gain is hard. We had a constant issue to control the cockpit noise while transmitting.

My Lightspeed Zulu 3 has become my new best flying friend.

  • By Laura from Merritt Island FL USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Quality materials and construction. Quiet and comfortable.
  • Review: My first active noise canceling headset and I love it. Very well made. Not cheep plastic like the Bose. Make flying much less fatigueing. Noise canceling works great. Ear seals are comfortable. Feels lighter than you would expect given that it has very little plastic. A truly quality piece.

Zulu3

  • By Bill from Arlington TN USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Comfortable and functions well
