Pros: Lightweight, great performance
Cons: Didn't come with a case
I bought this headset to use in the very quiet cockpit environment of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, so I didn't need ANR performance. The Telex 7 is just right for the mission. I often sit in the first officer's side doing training and it is nice to be able to flip the boom mic around for the right seat.
I often have the earset on the crew side pulled forward so I can hear the crew conversation better, but if I am in a difficult to hear or understand situation, such as Chinese controllers, I will position both earsets over my ears. Enroute we use cockpit speakers and I hang the Telex 7 around my neck and position the microphone in front of my lips. It works great like that and I don't have to have it on my head. It isn't uncomfortable on the head, but I don't like to mess up my hair.
The audio performance is great and I feel like I can hear well with it. I also love the microphone and get "loud and clear" comments from the controllers occasionally.
The Telex 7 is just what I was looking for. I lost my previous headset, a Sennheiser, but this one has a better microphone boom, so I like the Telex better.
