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).

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
  • Review: Excellent ANR, very comfortable, but cables way too short for my flying.

It does everything I need

  • By Bear Lemley from Bangkok , Thailand on Friday, October 12, 2018
  • Pros: Two AA batteries last a long long time, very light and comfortable, very quiet and clear, great microphone, works well in the gulfstreams
  • Review: I use this for my work as a corporate pilot. This is a headset that I can wear all day. We have legs with two crew up to 10 hours and more with crew rotation (so I would have it on less). I have own this head set now for a couple of years. I sold my Zulu and Zulu 2's in perfect working order. I fly about 30 hours a month (15 day duty) around the planet conversing with all different dialects of the world. This headset make that an easy task. The batteries last so long it's hard to remember when it was that I last replaced them. I think it's about 3 times a years with lithium AA's. they are so comfortable I used them to watch movies when I am in the airplane doing nav updates for hours. I have used customer service to order fresh ear pads about every 20 months and the reps at Lightspeed are always knowledgeable cheerful and helpful. shipping is immediate even to Thailand.
    I will not be trading up, as I cannot do four batteries for a fraction of the operating time.

When silence is good

  • By David from New Freedom PA USA on Wednesday, September 12, 2018
  • Pros: Kills all the most intrusive noise I use to hear, nice to be able to bluetooth my Iphone, nice case and really like the cord
  • Review: Took me a few years to finally pay for these. My Zulu 3 Headset is great. Upgraded from passive headsets. I fly a 2 seat ultralight that has a Rotax 2 stroke engine. It runs at 5000-5800 rpm at cruise and is very noisy. The Zulu virtually kills all the drone and low frequency noise from the prop and engine. It makes it much easier to hear my passenger and radio. It still lets the higher frequency noise thru but has been worth every penny I paid for it. A night and day difference to my old headset. I Definitely recommend this headset.

Highly recommend this headset

  • By Norm from Murfreesboro TN USA on Saturday, September 08, 2018
  • Pros: Comfort, noise cancellation, sound quality. Hard case is a plus
  • Review: A friend who fly's corporate has both Bose A20 and Zulu 3. He recommended I try both before buying and so I did. Ear caps are too small on Bose. I could hear wind noise from vents. Zulu 3 sound quality is better, their more comfortable, and they did a better job of cancelling noise. The choice was easy.

My Lightspeed ANR

  • By Phil from Punta Gorda FL USA on Tuesday, August 14, 2018

  • By Laura from Merritt Island FL USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Quality materials and construction. Quiet and comfortable.
  • Cons: Supplied storage case takes up quite a bit of space in my flight bag. Such a minor point given how great the head set is.

Zulu3

  • By Bill from Arlington TN USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Comfortable and functions well
  • Cons: Extremely short cable, and my direct email asking to send it back to add cable or acquire and extension lightspped referred me to another vendor that want $55 for an extension. Very poor approach to an obvious and frequently repeated complaint.
  • Review: Excellent ANR, very comfortable, but cables way too short for my flying.
