SoftComm C-40-20 Silver Fox Stereo Headset

Whatever your destination, you can now enjoy your flying experience even more with a SoftComm C-40-20 Silver Fox headset. This lightweight, rugged model has been carefully engineered for clarity, performance and reliability.

  • Soft Foam Ear Seals, Mic Muff and Cloth Ear Seal Covers included
  • Noise-Canceling, High Quality M-55 Electret Microphone
  • Contoured 6 Pillow, Soft Foam Vinyl Head pad
  • C 40-20 Head Weight, 13.3 oz.
  • Six-Way Adjustable Mic-Boom
  • Three-Year Warranty
  • New technology and material for greater noise control.
  • New High-level of audio performance.
  • Built-in adjustment points for personal fitting and "no squeeze" comfort.
  • New contoured foam head pad that eliminates "hot spots".
  • Convenient volume controls.
  • Six-way positive position mic-boom.
  • 60" long reinforced flexible cables.
  • High strength gold plated microphone and headphone plugs.

Constructed from new durable aerospace material, these headsets offer a real breakthrough in comfort and noise attenuation. For example, the new adjustable six pillow, soft foam head pads are designed to conform to head contours and eliminate "hot spots" on extra long flights.

The Super Soft Foam filled ear seals are made to surround the ears with quiet comfort. This blocks noise interference and provides the optimum comfort in a "no-squeeze" fit for hours of use. With a Noise Reduction Rating of -23dB, a quiet flight is assured. The Silver Fox has dual volume controls and Stereo/Mono switching.  An improved solid state Electret M-55 Condenser Microphone offers the finest in audio clarity and noise canceling properties. Likewise, these noise canceling microphones are capable of rejecting most outside noise and, at the same time, provide clear, crisp voice transmission. The six-way adjustable "friction boom" allows for precision placement of the microphone, and can be positioned on either side of the mouth.

The long, heavy duty cable assemblies are made to withstand strains up to 95 pounds and retain their flexibility from -40° to +120°F. Attached to the cables are gold plated plugs which are designed to eliminate connector static. SoftComm's "Pride-of-Workmanship" and "Made in the U.S.A." plus a three-year warranty make this headset an excellent value.

Instructor headset
by Tommy from Lexington NC USA 

Pros: Push to talk button
Cons: Tightness when new
Review: Great use for an instructor. The push to talk button on the headset comes in handy when the push to talk button on the yoke fails to work.

Don't be scared way because they aren't $1000.00 or more.
by Steven from San Tan Valley AZ USA 

Pros: Price, comfort, sound quality
Cons: None that I have found yet.
Review: I purchased a set of these for my flight training and found them to be excellent and a great value. I bought a second set for my wife now that she can fly with me.

Sure there are probably better out there, but I don't see spending the kind of money for "better". The sound quality is excellent as is the comfort. I wore them for three six flights a week over three day during my training and never found them uncomfortable.

Would buy again
by A Customer from Visalia CA USA 

Pros: Comfort and value
Cons: Only think I didn't like initially was the volume control knows (tall and unsightly) but they are easy to find in flight
Review: I purchased this headset as a secondary unit. I have only used it myself on three flights but I like the comfort. The headset feels lighter on the head and thus more comfortable than others I have used. The stereo function works well and helps this "mature" listener to hear both ATC and intercom discussions.

Solid headset at any price
by Steven from San Tan Valley AZ USA 

Pros: Price, quality construction, comfort, sound quality, noise reduction
Cons: Haven't found one yet
Review: Solid headset at a great price. I am sure that the expensive headsets are an improvement, but I just got into flying and these were suggested to me. In my case the company is local so that is a plus as well. The sound quality is great IMO and they haven't missed a beat. Looking at their construction next to a pair of Davis Clark of the same type they are very similar. For the price you can't go wrong.

Great product and value for money!
by Jonathan from Tempe AZ USA 

Pros: Clarity in hearing, light weight, highly recommended.
Cons: Nothing. Maybe make it wireless?
Review: I am a student pilot, and this is my first headset. I didn't know what kind to go with for my first time, and I tried this out at a local pilot shop when seeking a new one. I really liked the soft ear pieces, and excellent noise cancellation that the headset provides. I can hear my instructor, and also the radio very clearly, without any static or drop in volume. It has great volume control for both sides, and even mono if desired. Its a very durable headset, and the perfect price for someone not looking into spending a fortune for their first one. Also, this is supporting my local business since this company is based in the PHX area! I wish they had a local store to view and try all their products though. You will not regret buying it, the functionality it offers for the price is excellent in comparison to the other over priced David Clark headsets. If you want a brand name headset, then go with something else, but this will do you just as good or even better, and wont set you back $500 or more. Plus it offers a 5yr warranty if damaged (not due to negligence); no questions asked!

Price right for what you get
by Michael from Humble tx USA 

Pros: Great Factory warranty service
Review: Use this brand of headsets for the intercom for passengers and radio communication in our aircraft for several years. Never had a problem communicating but had some problems with hearing/boom mic. Decided to replace 2 headsets with 2 new ones. Decided to send the 2 broke headsets back to company. They were under warranty and repaired them to " new" condition. Very happy with company.

Nice headset
by A Customer from Kingwood TX USA 

Pros: Price. Comfortable. Mono/Stereo
Cons: Need screwdriver to adjust tension on mic boom.
Review: Nice headset for an affordable price. Sounds good and has volume control on each each. Also mono/stereo. The only negative - you need a screwdriver to adjust tension on the mic boom arm. I'd rather have a small knob to adjust the tension.

Don't let the price fool you!!
by Cherokeepilot from Port Lavaca, tx 

Pros: Lightweight, cost, service
Cons: Price. Cheap price tends to scare people away. They think they're low quality
Review: Great lightweight headset for the price. Nothing like the ANR sets that are out there but for the price you can't beat the quality and service from Softcomm. I had a set that was left in a plane that I just purchased. Well left side speaker was blown. I sent them back and they sent me practically a new set. The replaced all the parts so basically they sent me a new set. I have several of the higher priced headsets and my wife seems to like this set better than a 400 dollar set that we have. It's really light weight. Good luck in your search.
