Glad I bought this

  • By Mark from Parker CO USA on Monday, March 27, 2017
  • Pros: Light weight- noise reduction using the airplane power as a power source- no additional control box to mess with.
  • Review: Exceeded my expectations. Maybe the least cost headset of the possible professional headsets but worth more if simplicity, light weight and less hassle is important to you.

Works great with good sound clarity. Compact.

  • By Steven from Swannanoa NC USA on Saturday, February 18, 2017
  • Pros: Lightweight, no batteries needed, good for wearing glasses
  • Review: Lightweight, good ANR function, good sound clarity, no batteries needed, comfortable even when used as single earpiece headset.

I would buy again

  • By A Customer from Satellite Beach FL USA on Tuesday, November 01, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: Very compact for airline flying
    Longer flights i can feel some pressure on ears but overall better than other headsets

Do not buy for long flight

  • By Totof from KSAT on Wednesday, August 17, 2016
  • Pros: Good for doing the job and lightweight with no need of batteries
  • Review: Good product for short flights! Standard on all Gulfstream!
    However it hurts after outlet hours from the thin headband pressing on your head, specially if your hair is thinning!

Good product

  • By Colt from DFW on Wednesday, May 18, 2016
  • Pros: Can change glasses without moving headset.
  • Review: Works good in daily regional jet use, typically have them on over 5 hours a work day. I wear glasses for near vision only, easy to get glasses on/off without having to move headset. Compact storage fits in suitcase or pilot bag.

Great headset!

  • By Kevin from Draper UT USA on Tuesday, May 17, 2016
  • Pros: Great audio performance, lightweight, quiet.
  • Review: The Telex Airman 850 Lightweight ANR is an awesome headset! I bought this second one because of the superior performance of the first one that I had for 10 years. This second headset is also performing spectacularly and I hope to be using it for 10 years!

Not recommended.

11 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Thursday, July 11, 2013

    Q: Is the telex 850 can be converted to single sided or you need to buy it separately ?

    A: The standard Telex Airman 850 model cannot be converted to a single sided set; however we do offer the Telex Airman 850 Lightweight ANR Headset - Single Sided model in addition to the standard.

  • Wednesday, June 22, 2011

    Q: I want to know if the ANR850 includes a headset's case...

    A: Yes, the Telex ANR850 does come with a cloth, semi-rigid, zippered carrying case.

  • Tuesday, November 16, 2010

    Q: can I buy extra ear cushions and microphone covers with Telex Airman 850 ?

    A: Yes, we have both the Telex Leatherette Ear Cushions for Airman 850 and the Telex Mic Muff for Telex 850 Headsets available for purchase.

  • Friday, November 12, 2010

    Q: Are these compatible with the Gulfstream 4?

    A: Yes, you should not have have any problems using this headset in a Gulfstream IV.

  • Tuesday, August 17, 2010

    Q: Will the work in a CJ2 with no special adapters?

    A: Generally speaking, yes, it will work in the Citation with no problem.  Unless your Citation has been specifically wired with either an XLR or Redel connector for the headsets, this should work right out of the box.  This uses the standard dual aviation jacks and most avionics systems will not have any problem powering the ANR from the mic tip.

  • Thursday, May 27, 2010

    Q: The Telex 850 does not work fine in B 747 classics. I just returned a pair that I bought last month as it only worked in two of the six aircraft that I tried. Arayan Lias from California has got it right. The ANR doesn't work on the 747 Classic unless the transmit sw. is keyed.

    A: Thank you for the report that it works fine in some B-747 and not in others.

  • Tuesday, May 18, 2010

    Q: I notice that in the reviews that Arayan Lias from california said that the ANR doesn't work on the 747 Classic unless the transmit sw. is keyed. Is this true? That's the aircraft that I fly. Thanks in advance.

    A: That was most likely an isolated incident as that is the only report we have heard about with that occurring. The ANR should work at all times as it is powered by the microphone tip.

  • Friday, July 17, 2009

    Q: Is the 850 compatible with Embraer 190 elecs?

    A: The Telex 850 uses the standard dual male plugs (PJ-055 / PJ-068) found in most fixed wing aircraft.  If that is what is used in your Embraer, it should work great.

  • Wednesday, December 19, 2007

    Q: I'm looking to go to the major airlines soon. Which A.C. will the Telex 850 work on (Boeing, MD, Airbus) and which ones will it not work on? Thank you, Ryan

    A: This will work on any aircraft that uses the standard two plugs (PJ-055 and PJ-068). Generally speaking, this includes any civilian fixed wing aircraft except the Airbus. Because the Airbus generally uses a different type of plug, you will probably need the General Aviation Headset to Airbus Adapter. Military fixed aircraft are also different but that doesn't sound to be a factor for you.

  • Tuesday, November 13, 2007

    Q: The phone plug is compatible whit stereo systems?

    A: The Telex 850 is not a stereo headset. It will operate in a mono mode (the same sound out of both ears) when connected to a music source.

  • Tuesday, August 28, 2007

    Q: is the 850 compatible with B 747 flt deck electronics. also can it be adapted for use with I pod.thanks

    A: Yes, the Telex 850 should work fine in the B747. It does not have an interface for the iPod.
