by Chao du from shanghai 
Review: 738 pilot. The ANR is good enough for me. 7.4oz is not too heavy even for over 8 hours fly.  The only thing is you will feel a little constriction on auricle after long time fly.

I have doubt about quality
by B738 from Las Vegas NV USA 

Pros: Noise cancelation, clear hearing
Cons: Mic, not as comfortable as expected
Review: Its noise cancelation is satisfactory. However its mic has a problem about transmission with tower or acc..on the other hand, nice when using for PA or service.. Also, you can adjust the intensity of mic but it is hard to feel the rotation and it is so weak..

Incredible product!
by Gustavo Pilati from Brazil  

Pros: ANR, audio clarity
Cons: Case is too simple and small.
Review: I'm using it on the ATR 72-500. The audio clarity is outstanding, even with the volume levels at minimum you can still hear everything and everyone. The ANR is excellent, cancels all the annoying sounds but keeps the warnings and other important sounds alive. 2 months of use and still on first pair of batteries. The only cons is that the case that comes with it is very simple and a little bit small, but it's not a significant problem.

A bit bulky but they work great!
by Kristi from Fountain Hills AZ USA 

Review: These headsets work really well and I love the noise cancelling. Without it I would be extra tired by the end of the day. I don't like how bulky they are with the noise cancelling box. A bit hard to fit them back in the case correctly in a hurry.

Too tight
by Jaime from Jamaica NY USA 

Pros: Quality of sound
Cons: Unconfortable
Review: Nothing to say about the quality of sound it is great, but after a while I feel very unconfortable, fit too tight and since the ear cup does not cover ear totally it cause pain in the ear pavillion. Two bands overhead instead of one has not been a good idea either.

Nice headset
by Daniel from Glendale AZ USA 

Pros: Size, noise reduction, quality build.
Cons: Little tight..
Review: I've been using a sennheiser headset for the last 13yrs. It was time for new so decided to give it a try again. Overall very good quality and design...finally hid all the stray wires... Mic is excellent, noise reduction superb.. It's a little tighter on the ears than my old set. That would be my only complaint, that and not really fond of the headband that automatically spreads. The cable and battery box are much stronger and the battery life is vastly tech...overall I'm very happy and pleased at the price...if one can be happy about spending soo much...but the competition can be up to three or our hundred more and completely over your ear. Much cooler ..temp...for on the ear vs over the ear.

Comfort: OK. Sound Atennuation: Very Good.
by Steve the 737 CA MIA from Delray Beach FL USA 

Pros: Small, light and effective noise attenuation.
Cons: Expensive. Requires a lot of adjusting but eventually it's comfortable.

I'm a pilot on the 737 wich is a VERY LOUD airplane. A noise attenation headset is must when you're flying 70 plus hrs a month. I tried the Sennheiser S1 - it's twice as big and heavy but awsome to use. But for me the black ear cups are so big, I felt a little too Micky Mouse wearing it. If looks don't matter to you then go for that one instead. It has the blue tooth MP3 capability wich is more convenient than the mini jack on the HMEC 26. (The Bose A20 has blue tooth but not for use with MP3!?)

The HMEC-26 is good 737 headset. The 'swing back one ear cup' function is good for cross cockpit comm to the other seat. Of course, with only the one ear cup, you don't get all sound protection you could. But the sound is greatly reduced overall with even just the one. With two cups on it's really good. If both guys can use the intercomm and keep both cups on, 330kts and Mach 82 are no big deal.

Additionally - the microphone is great. I have a weak voice normally but using this thing makes me sound like I'm Sky King on four packs a day. Much better than the Telex 850 or the plastic molded ear piece set up. With the better sound coming in and going out - I just don't miss radio calls anymore and ATC seems to respond on my first call more often.

My only downgrade would be for the designed comfort features. The bracket that wraps over the top of your skull has two foam pads that just don't stay there. The bracket itself is actually two brackets that split apart and I guess are supposed to distribute the wieght better. In practice, I guess they do but between the two split brackets, the loose foam pads, and the swung back ear cup on one side, the whole apparatus gets fairly unbalanced, and can tangle up your hair doo (piece?) pretty good. My answer has been to take photographers black gaffers tape and tape the foam pads and the two brackets all together. Problem solved, and it's still very comfortable for long periods.

Overall I'm pleased. For the price I wish it included blue tooth MP3 capability but a cable is only $10.

Review: I find the ANR fantastic. Used on an ATR42-500 and works pretty well. The pressure on the ears takes some getting used to but overall a great piece of equipment.

by Merle from Pueblo CO USA 

Pros: Feel Good and I can hear!!
Cons: Price but worth it
Review: HMEC-26-BV-K ANR Headsets are GREAT and if you are a little hard hearing like myself, you will enjoy flying with these headsets.

I purchased the HMEC-46 and they dont work at all. Very disappointing. In for repair as we speak and getting Sennheiser to turnaround a repair is not simple.

They done it again...
by Gome from  

Pros: very light, hardly notice it, ANR has a fantastic frequency range (even for turboprop)
Cons: after some time it can be uncomfortable due to the contact pressure.
Review: Simply put, its a fantastic piece of work.  It certainly met and exceeded my expectations.  Lost one rating star due to the discomfort after extended use...

Great headset except....
by Dash 8 driver from Ny 

Pros: Great sound and ENC
Cons: Uncomfortable
Review: It is a fantastic headset except that after about two hours it really starts to hurt my ears because of the clamping force. Also the music input is somewhat annoying as I have yet figured out how to turn off the fade away. If you fly with a headset for long periods or busy airspace I would keep looking.

I would buy this product again
by Alfredo from Paracuellos de Jarama, Madrid, Spain 

Review: It has met my expectations.
Was this Review Helpful to you?   Yes   No

Tuesday, August 30, 2011
by Tanguy from Belgium 

Pros: excellent noise cancelling, comfort, music listening and battery life
Cons: Talk Through useless
Review: Excellent noise canceling (much better than the TELEX 850, clamping force is a slightly more of course than the TELEX, but it is mandatory to have that kind of noise cancelling), listening to music is really an incredible experience (music fade when COMM used, and come back only after a few seconds, just the time needed for a reply to ATC, but it does it much better than the BOSE A20); auto shut-off function when aircraft de-powered is user friendly to save battery life (you do not need to turn it off!);
Don't buy the HMEC-26-T Talk-through, it's useless...You loose all the noise canceling, it is more efficient to use the one-ear possibility.

Don't spend too much time to search, probably this is the best choice in the world
by Adil OZGUN from LTFJ 

Review: Maybe you like to search, compare products, and after long search time you buy a product. But this headset is optimum quality and performance and duration mix. Nothing to say forget the price and you should take it. For B737 users, extra accessory needed for losing cable and making sterile cockpit jack side of the pilot.

Relatively comfortable, good sound but high pitch background noise
by Gerd from Vero Beach FL USA 

Pros: super sound quality, good noise reduction
Cons: super high frequencies not filtered out as good as with the HMEC-26
Review: We already own a HMEC-46 headset, which is great in all aspects. But since we wanted another one with a little better noise reduction we bought the HMEC-26. 1) Noise reduction considerably better than with the HMEC-46. 2) Not quite as comfortable as the HMEC-46 which is hardly noticeable. 3) Sound quality absolutely top. 4) Very annoying high pitch background noise gets through, something which is absolutely not the case with the HMEC-46 (same position, same style plugs, same airplane).

Ask Your Own Question
On Saturday, February 18, 2012 a customer asked:
I've a sennheiser hmec26 and I'm looking for the BVK cable. I think the cable should be available as an accessory- do you sell it?
A: Yes, you can find the BV-K cable assembly here:  Sennheiser 500839 Cable BV-K for the HMEC26 / 46 Series

On Friday, July 22, 2011 a customer asked:
I wish to buy the Sennheiser HMEC 26 BVK which has the dual plugs. I will need the XLR 5 pins adaptor for Airbus A320 aircraft. Do you sell it?
A: If I understand your question, you want this HMEC-26-BV-K headset that has the standard dual plugs but you also want to be able to use it in the Airbus?  If so, you could just get the 26-BV-K and then you could either add the BV-CP cable which has the 5-pin XLR connector.  Then you would just unscrew and change the cables when needed.  This would allow you to get power for the headset through the aircraft instead of using batteries.  Or, you can get the Fixed Wing to Airbus Adapter and use it with the dual plugs on this BV-K headset.  If you go with the adapter, you would still need to power the headset with batteries.  If you don't need the dual plugs at all and you only need to use this in the Airbus, then you should just get the Sennheiser HMEC-26-CP headset that has the 5-pin XLR for the Airbus.
