I would buy this product again

  • By David from South Africa on Thursday, January 14, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review:

Great for a student pilot!!!

  • By Joseph from Hayward CA USA on Monday, November 23, 2015
  • Pros: it works well, has inputs for the phone (that I havent needed or tested) and is clear
  • Review: I am a student pilot and between the aircraft rentals, purchase of books, flight physical, yadda yadda yadda, I was looking to avoid spending $1000 on a headset. Well, this one is comfortable (I've flown for 2 1/2 hour lessons and it didn't bother me) and is clear. The only problem is that you have to be careful positioning the microphone or else it cuts off the first part of your transmission... but it has been a beautiful headset to me.

Good headset

  • By Robert from Virginia Beach VA USA on Thursday, May 08, 2014
  • Pros:
  • Review: Good headset.quiet. took some time to figure out the electric Mic. But once that was accomplished very quiet.

I would buy the headset again

  • By Bernd from Heilsbronn Bavaria Germany on Tuesday, September 18, 2012
  • Pros:
  • Review: For this price it is a very good headset and I would suggest it to everyone who cannot buy an expensive one!

Doesn't last long

  • By A Customer from tulsa OK on Wednesday, April 25, 2012
  • Pros: low price
  • Review: Decent Beginner headset, but began having trouble with it within a few months months. I only used it as a passenger set. I have a softcom headset that is similarly priced and it is way better for the money

A good value for the cost - perfect for passengers or begining student.

  • By Cherokee PA28 pilot from Trenton MI USA on Tuesday, January 05, 2010
  • Pros: The sound quality and microphone function is decent and the availability for passengers to plug in an ipod is nice.
  • Review: This headset offers a decent value and higher end options at a low cost. The available adjustments make this compatible for most head sizes and shapes. This headset works very well with passengers on short to medium length flights, and that was the reason for my selection. For pilots or other personnel that will be wearing headsets for longer durations, I would recommend pursuit of a higher comfort level. This would be a cost effective student "starter" set.

Good value for the price

  • By A Customer from Mount Vernon WA USA on Tuesday, April 07, 2009
  • Pros: Quiet, plays music
  • Review: Good headset no complaints except on longer flights the head pad can be a little uncomfortable, works great with a ipod.

Works good, but mic needs attention

  • By A Customer from Tennessee, USA on Tuesday, January 27, 2009
  • Pros: fits good and is comfortable
  • Review: This headset has worked well for my husband, who is just beginning his studies to learn to fly. He has used the headset in flight and his only complaint is that the microphone does not pick up very good. He has to have the mic touching his mouth for it to pick up his voice, and he's not a quiet talker.
