Originally designed for the military, the new PA 17-79 DNC XL headset is now
available for general aviation and is positioned to be the leading ANR headset
for the quality conscious consumer. Taking full advantage of closer tolerance
mil-spec components the Independence provides an additional 18-22 dB of active noise reduction at 100 Hz. The new PA 17-79 XLP was designed to be used on the International
Space Station and is now also available for general aviation use.
This is the panel mount version. The portable
unit is available here:PA 17-79T ANR
Enhanced Voice Intelligibility (EVI)
The Independence headset has incorporated into its integrated circuitry a
proprietary DSP circuit which enhances all audio within the speech frequencies.
The result is more intelligible incoming ATC transmissions. Incoming speech
frequencies are amplified 2-4 dB for more clarity and intelligibility. This is
particularly favorable for pilots who may have suffered some hearing loss over
Modular Flexible Design
The PA 17-79's modularity includes some unique features. We have designed
the Independence headset to be modular with the introduction of a detachable
comm-cord and microphone boom. This modularity makes the unit "field
repairable". Pilots can use the headset without the comm-cord when they are
doing their preflight around the aircraft. The detachable comm-cord enables the
user to use the headset in different applications by simply purchasing the
appropriate comm-cord. Industrial users can wear a modified version with or
without a microphone and protect their hearing as well as have the flexibility
to walk around without worrying about a power source. The user can adjust the
microphone boom from left to right by plugging into the 3.5 mm jack on either
the left or right ear cup. One can remove the microphone boom by fully extending
the headband to its largest size so approximately only ¾" of the headband is
passing through the rubber bushing located in the center of the ear cup. Then
grasp the tip of the headband and slowly pull/twist the headband through the
rubber bushing. To reattach, line up the molded rubber pieces and headband and
snap the rubber molded piece back onto the pivot.
The headset is fitted with a breathable sheepskin headpad which is attached
to the headband with a Velcroâ closure. This headpad virtually eliminates all
complaints of hat spots caused by non-breathable synthetic headpads used by
other manufacturers. The natural headpad combined with the wide single pivot
suspension of the headband assures a comfortable fit. The foam ear seals are
extra soft and generously proportioned and fit around the ear to distribute
pressure. Silicone gel ear seals are available as an accessory.
Mono/Stereo Selector Switch Individual Ear Cup Volume Adjustments
The Independence DNC headset can be used in either monaural or stereo modes. A
selector switch (M/S) and individual right and left ear cup volume adjustments
are placed conveniently on the comm-cord for easy access. Each ear cup's audio
volume can be individually adjusted in either mono or stereo mode. This allows
users who may have suffered previous hearing loss in one ear to have perfect
audio adjustment in both ears.
