The Ultimate in Sound Clarity

Clarity Aloft Aviation Headsets have merged the most advanced technologies from the fields of hearing science, aviation communications, and performance audio into a streamlined design.

The Clarity Aloft headsets employ patented Comply(TM) Canal Tips, composed of soft viscoelastic foam, the same foam tips used in advanced hearing aids. More than simple earplugs, these foam tips provide full spectrum noise reduction: 35-45dB of attenuation. This advanced technology has been lab tested to prove that viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) is superior to active noise reduction (ANR), especially in the speech frequencies, precisely where clarity of sound and hearing protection is most needed for aviation communications.

  • Superior clarity of sound
  • Lightweight, but rugged enough to meet military specifications
  • Better noise reduction than ANR in the speech frequencies
  • Cool and comfortable
  • Hygienic replaceable foam tips, compliant to each individual ear
  • High quality components tested to military specifications
  • Professional grade microphone
  • Stereo/Mono capability with MP-3/Ipod input
  • No batteries are required
  • 3 Year Warranty

Clarity Aloft(TM) aviation headsets are the result of their commitment to the highest standards in aviation communications. These headsets contain the most technically advanced components brought together from diverse experts in audio communications.

The Earpieces
The Clarity Aloft earpieces are used to improve both hearing protection and speech communications. Each earpiece includes a miniature speaker that reproduces speech signals from the aircraft audio system. The replaceable compliant foam tips (Comply(TM) Canal Tips) which attach to the earpiece contain a pathway for the sound to travel from the transducer to the ear. Used by the military for helicopter pilots, both components of the earpiece, the transducer and Comply Canal Tips, have been tested, used rigorously and meet the most exacting military standards.

Replaceable Foam Tips
The superior seal is achieved with our patented Comply(TM) Canal Tips, which are used in high-end hearing aids. These viscoelastic foam tips provide the highest level of hearing protection available by any method including active noise reduction. (ANR) The outstanding noise reduction (35-45dB) in the speech frequencies between 400 to 4,000 Hz results in unsurpassed clarity of voice communications. Resembling foam earplugs, the foam tips are so comfortable because they are compliant to the shape of the ear. Considerable sound science history backs up their impressive performance. Technical specifications on our viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) are included in the Owner's Guide.

The Noise-Cancelling Microphone
The noise-canceling microphone used in the Clarity Aloft Headset is a high fidelity noise canceling Electret Condenser microphone with performance optimized for speech frequencies in extremely high noise environments. Stage performers and musicians use this same microphone because they must insist on the highest level of sound reproduction.

Music Input
The Clarity Aloft Stereo Headset is also equipped with a music input in the volume control box that will accommodate most music devices through a 1/8 inch plug. Be sure that the volume of the music device is set at minimum before connecting to the headset.

Low-Profile Headband
With its flexible boom arm, this featherweight band is the same one sported by stage musicians and professional performers the world over. Balance and comfort are the result of its elegantly simple design. The mic boom can be easily re-positioned for eating and drinking during flight without disturbing your earpieces.

Includes:

  • Headset
  • Carrying case
  • Owner's Guide
  • 6 month supply of Comply(TM) Canal Tips (6 pair)
     

If you require FAA Certification, a TSO'd version of the Clarity Aloft Headset is also available here.

Fantastic headset for a reasonable price

  • By Kris The Surveyor from Ontario, Canada on Thursday, May 02, 2019
  • Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, clear communication, noise reduction, audio input
  • Review: After only my first day using this headset, I can already tell that it was a fantastic investment. I found that the foam ear buds, when installed properly, provide better noise reduction than the standard David Clarke headsets that we have in our helicopter. The headset is so lightweight and comfortable that after a short time, it is easy to forget that you're even wearing it! The audio is crystal clear which means no miscommunication, and the aux input on the volume control box is great for listening to my iPod while on long survey lines. Listening to your own music is also crystal clear and doesn't interfere with communication. The only thing I would remotely consider as a con would be that the microphone is so sensitive and clear, it is difficult to clear your throat or cough without engaging the intercom. Will definitely recommend these to anyone I know looking to buy.

Exceeds my expectations

  • By Jonathan from Warrenville IL USA on Thursday, December 27, 2018
  • Pros: Light, Comfortable, quiet
  • Review: I’m surprised with the level of noise reduction.
    Even in a reasonably noisy aircraft a noted reduction of ambient static. The radio is clearer and easier to hear. You will likely need to turn the volume to max level on the headset. Great for winter use, you can wear a winter hat, pulled down over your ears and in the summer no problem wearing any kind of hat. No more of the hat button digging into your head.

Why did I wait so long?

  • By Ian Shere from Goodyear, AZ on Monday, September 24, 2018
  • Pros: Light, good sound - both out and in
  • Review: I've been looking at these PNR in-ear headsets for probably 2 years. I own 3 pairs of Bose X which are great headsets, though big and heavy. hey need adjustment every hour or so as they dig into your head.

    I recently got a note from Bose that they will no longer repair the X after 2020 and that got me rethinking my earlier musings.

    So I finally took the plunge and bought the Basic Clarity Aloft headset.I was concerned, despite all the positive reviews, that they would reduce noise to the level of the Bose X. I was wrong.They are as quiet if not more so (we fly a big bore 6 - Conti IO-520k so there's plenty of noise!) than the X. The microphone stayed in place without difficulty and picked up my voice clearly. ATC was easy to hear - perhaps slightly better than the X.

    There is a small trade-off. There are not just "throw on you head" easy to put on. There is a knack and it is NOT ROLLING THE EAR BUDS! That is bad, bad, bad and will result in broken wires. How surprising, the documentation says exactly that, and it's there for a reason. Squeeze the buds down with 2 or 3 finger tips - do it 2-3 times rotating your fingers, then push into the ear and hold briefly until the foam expands. Holding the top of your ear and pulling up gently makes it all so much easier too. Yes, you'll feel a bit self-conscious, but it eases insertion and improves fit.

    Can't wait for the next flight!

Very Pleasantly Surprised

  • By matthew from Grass Valley CA USA on Saturday, August 18, 2018
  • Pros: VERY clear sound, huge noise reduction, comfortable
  • Review:

    My main reason for purchasing this product is that I am 6'8" and I have some real head clearance issues. I was really opposed to the price of the Clarity Aloft but I went ahead and got these as I was tired of sitting with my head sideways to fit under the canopy.

    So the price is legit and absolutely worth it! It is obvious that the speakers are hearing-aid quality. This would account for the price. The noise attenuation is far superior to my old active headset. So quiet in fact that my 1st few flights were spent anxiously looking at engine instrumentation because it was TOO quiet.

    It's true that the earplug has to go ALL THE WAY IN your ear. I do not like regular earplugs but these are comfortable for up to 2 hours so far.
    Also very comfortable on the head. If you are juggling a hat, headset and glasses in a very hot environment this makes for a much better experience. I'm less fatigued and more comfortable.

Half the price and even better

  • By Phil from Los Gatos CA USA on Monday, January 22, 2018
  • Pros: Light, quiet, can where glasses
  • Review: This my second Clarity Aloft headset (this one was for my wife). It is just as quiet as an ANR but so much lighter. Your head doesn't sweat and you can where glasses without any issues.

Excellent Headset

  • By Mo the student pilot from Daytona Beach FL USA on Monday, June 19, 2017
  • Pros: Clear voice, noise reduction, comfortable, lets your ear breathe and cool down in summer, volume control
  • Review: So clear. Easy to wear, so comfortable. No pain in your outer ear due to wearing huge suction cups. No huge handle bar on top of your head that bumps to the ceiling. Easy to wear with glasses.

  • By on Monday, February 06, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: I got this headset for my wife since she didn't like wearing a clamp style headset during flights. Verdict - she loves them! I tried them and was amazed at how well they attenuate sound and the clarity of radio communications. Now I need to this headset for me.

7 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Monday, December 06, 2010

    Q: can i use this headset on both fixed wing and helicopter (bell412)

    A: Yes, it can be used out of the box in a Fixed Wing aircraft.  To use it in a helicopter, you would need the Standard Fixed Wing Headset to Helicopter Adapter.

  • Monday, September 27, 2010

    Q: I see that the clarity aloft will work with an MP3 player (music input) but will it also work with a cell phone? e.g. Will the Clarity Aloft allow the user to talk to, and listen to, a phone call on an iPhone?

    A: The Clarity Aloft headsets are not available with a built-in cell phone interface.  If you needed that feature, you could add the BluLink Cell Phone to Aviation Headset Adapter.

  • Sunday, March 21, 2010

    Q: is this headset able to be worn on as to place the mic on either side?

    A: No it is not, the boom must be worn on the left side.

  • Friday, March 14, 2008

    Q: Will this headset work with an Icom-A24 or Sporty's SP-200 hand held radio, along with a push-to-talk? Adapters are fine, But is it possible?

    A: Yes, this headset should work with any transceiver that allows connection with a General Aviation headset with PJ-068 & PJ-055B plugs.

  • Sunday, December 16, 2007

    Q: Can this headset work on the airbus planes? (especially the A320) Does it require the TSO'ed version?

    A: Becuase the Airbus generally uses a different type of plug, you will probably need the General Aviation Headset to Airbus Adapter. Some airlines and flight departments require you to use a TSO'd headset which would be the deciding factor for you.

  • Wednesday, December 05, 2007

    Q: why is there a price difference between the faa tso certified version and the standard version? is there also a difference in quality?

    A: The TSO version has undergone all the required FAA testing which adds to the cost. The improvements in the Clarify Aloft TSO version include;
    Lighter weight
    More flexible Stainless Steel wire band
    Thinner, more supple cording.

  • Wednesday, September 05, 2007

    Q: Im interested in buying the clarity aloft headset. Im currently flying the Robinson R22 and it requires a 1 plug insert. How can i get a conversion from to plug to one?

    A: This adapter will covert from the dual plugs to the single U-174/U plug: http://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/1192
