by joel from morrow GA USA 
Pros: comforting fit over ears and head. Quiet noise reduction, great acoustics with boom mic. Very light
Cons: Battery deterioration rather rapidly. Product uses 4 batteries.
Review: This product is very good. I love the quiet noise reduction and great acoustics when speaking. What I hate about it is that the batteries run down very quickly. Also it carries 4 batteries. There is nothing lacking about this product. The comfort fit over the head and ears is excellent. I recommend this product.

I would buy it again
by B.C. from Newport Beach CA USA 

Pros: Excellent contraction quality. Good in a high noise environment. BlueTooth connectivity
Cons: A bit pricey, but that's the cost of quality. There's no room for "junk" in an airplane.
Review: The Lightspeed Zulu PFX ANR Headset met my expectations, and after reading the reviews, I expected a lot. I needed another headset for a high noise environment (Extra 300L, WACO YMF-5C and Pitts S2C).

My Bose A20 has been working fine and I have no complaints concerning the Bose. I wanted to make use of the trade-in offer on my older Bose Aviation X that was just sitting in the closet, and figured I'd try the latest in ANR technology. The LS PFX worked as advertised. It was slightly better than the Bose A20, but not enough to warrant ditching the Bose A20 (it was definitely worth the $425 upgrade offer for my Bose X). And I liked being able to BlueTooth cell calls and music from my iPhone (which the Bose A20 also does).

The construction quality of the LS PFX is excellent. Better than the Bose. The PFX is a bit bulkier (attributable to the beefier construction). The kevlar/rubber audio cords are thin and supple, and are much less bothersome than traditional cords.

I've never owned the older LightSpeed headsets, so I cannot make a comparison. But from the reviews I've read, the PFX is noticeably better.

My LS PFX is rather new, so I haven't yet played with the custom noise signature feature.

If you have a headset that is 2 generations old, it's definitely worth it to upgrade to the LS PFX, especially with the upgrade offer. For a one generation old headset like the Bose A20, it probably isn't worth it unless you need a second headset, or your current headset lacks the BlueTooth features.

The audio control "box" is on the large side, but there is enough cord length to the plugs so that you have more latitude in where to mount it in the cockpit (important if you're doing acro).

All in all, I'm happy and I'd buy it again.

Pure quiet
by Scott stuart from Lnk 

Pros: Extreme quieting
Cons: None
Review: In my bonanza virtually no piston or prop pulse noise, with PFX sounds more like the swoosh of a jet interior. Superior, quiet, I could never go back!

by Rick from Cedaredge, CO 
Pros: very quiet
Cons: The cord is a bit strange, and the battery pack is pretty bulky.

by Montgomery from Westcliffe, CO 
Pros: Outstanding noise cancellation.
Cons: Heavy box.
Review: This is a great headset for General Aviation, but average for commercial carriers. Here are my reasons why it has problems for commercial flying:

1. The control box is extremely heavy. Since most commercial jets have plugs overhead, the box swings around and can hit you in the head. Other headsets I have used all have a clip to attach the control box to the aircraft to keep it from swinging. The Zulu PFX does not. The cord is not long enough to place the box on a side rail, so it just swings. The weight also will often cause the plug to come undone, losing communication.

2. The headset is so great and sealing around your ears that you effectively lose the ability to hear cockpit communication. Since commercial jets do not have the hot mic feature of GA, you have to listen to what other crew members are saying. With both earpieces covering the ears, it is almost impossible to discern what is being said. You must have one earpiece off your ear to effectively hear.

3. Battery life is very short. Both sets have lasted about 6 hours. No bluetooth, and use is only during climb, descent, and overseas position reporting. Such a short battery life means it works for one leg only, which is inconvenient for international flying.

4. The main cord is just a little too short. With the connection overhead, the cord is not long enough to lay the headset on the side console. There is a clip for headsets, but the Zulu PFX has such a wide headband that it will not fit in the clip. There is no way to use the clip, as there is with other headsets. Lightspeed needs to add a clip to the control box, as well as providing a loop or something similar to the headset to hang it from commercial aircraft provided clips.

Overall, this is a great set for blocking cockpit noise and hearing ATC communications clearly. But there are some CONS that commercial pilots need to be aware of when using the Lightspeed Zulu PFX.

November 7, 2014 UPDATE
My Zulu PFX did NOT come with a clip for the control box. I was informed by Lightspeed that it was supposed to. So the clip will help mitigate the mounting problem.
Second, if you use the app, you can adjust the settings for battery conservation. Once I did this, I was able to get much better battery longevity that initially.
Third, I found out that the LIghtspeed Zulu PFX is not TSO certified, meaning that it technically is not authorized for use in commercial aviation. It worked fine, but whatever TSO certification does or adds, the PFX has not been certified.

Best fit and better ANC than the "Other" brand
by Skypilot1992 from Snohomish WA USA 

Pros: FITS...like a glove even with thick temple arm glasses and ball cap. Love the "mapping" function and adjustment for ambient noise changes.
Cons: Mic only set for left ear. Won't swing over for a right ear/side use..
Review: Great experience in an Evektor light sport which is NOISY by its very nature. The inline wire control is a bit clunky but has a short learning curve...which is good. The headset is the best fitting for me...7 7/8th size hat. Low weight. The mic is only wired/set for the left ear side...minor issue but prefer either side option as the cockpit air enters on left side.

Great Headset
by Robert Joseph Green from Reno, NV 

Pros: Very clear audio.
Cons: Clunky Bluetooth box.
Review: All good except Bluetooth box is little clunky. If I were able to leave the headset in the aircraft (I rent) it would not be a problem.

Best headset on the market!
by BCM25 from Atlanta, GA 

Pros: Comfortable, extremyl quiet, music quality is equal to top notch music headphones, and metal clip removes the issue of the big ANR box
Cons: I'm not using it right now
Review: I typed up this review on another forum though I figured this pretty much describes this amazing piece of aviation hardware that I could just copy and paste to where I bought it from.

I have had my PFX since last Wednesday (July 9th) now and coming from a first gen Zulu all I can say is WOW!!!!! At first I was a little overwhelmed by the size of the ANR box but it's actually a great setup especially with the metal clip they provide. I find it more convenient and comfortable then my previous Zulu. With the clip attached, I can usually find something in the cockpit to mount it to. The headset is as comfortable if not more then the original Zulu. Max flight time without taking it off was 3.5hrs and I could've still went another 3.5+ hours with it on. The music quality is phenomenal! (Especially when combined with the flightlink). ANR on this headset is the the best I've ever heard/experienced. It has 2 modes to select from. The first level is your typical first and second gen Zulu's level of ANR then when you switch it to the second level it's almost doubling the amount of ANR(this is where this headset really shines). I've tested it out in a cub, Acrosport with a canopy, Twin Comanche, TBM700, and a CRJ700 within the past week. In loud open cockpits (cub), you have to keep the headset in the 1st level of ANR but even with that it's just like having a previous version Zulu so no big deal there. Flying in the Twin Comanche with headset in the second stage of ANR, there were moments when I wondered if the engines were running, it's that quiet. The TBM was even quieter and the RJ was very very very very silent. The RJ has avionics fans that are pretty loud and this headset knocks that sound out. When I have the music going and the headset on level 2 in a turbine aircraft I can't hear anything outside of the headset (even other people in the cockpit not on the intercom). So with all of this said, this is without a doubt worth every penny of $1100!

So if your in the market for the best headset money can buy right now, then look no further because you have just found it!

With no coiled cord for helis, so the headset will pull off my head when I reach forward to adjust the altimeter, or there will be a long cord laying on the collective to possibly interfere with it?
