Pilot USA PA 17-79TB ANR Headset

Pilot USA PA 17-79TB ANR Headset

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 Headset.

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 the years.

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.

Comfort Features
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.
