A great headset, but not so much when wearing sunglasses.

  • By Matthew from Fresno CA USA on Tuesday, May 01, 2012
  • Pros: Comfortable and fairly light. Microphone position is easy to adjust.
  • Cons: The active noise reduction feature can't be used to its fullest when wearing sunglasses.
  • Review: While I find the LightSPEED Sierra Headset to be comfortable, often times I have trouble hearing radio calls and/or myself speaking when wearing sunglasses. The active noise reduction feature works brilliantly when, once again, sunglasses are not being worn. Since I do a lot of day-time flying, this has become an issue.

    Also, the volume control on the headset's controller seems to increase the sound between pilots within the cockpit to deafening levels while hardly changing the volume of incoming radio calls from outside sources.

Not there yet

  • By Jim from Silver Spring MD USA on Tuesday, January 24, 2012
  • Pros: Great noise reduction
  • Cons: problems with bluetooth setup
  • Review: Very comfortable, and great noise reduction. So far so good. However, you cannot try out the bluetooth phone connection until you're in the airplane (that's not explained in the manual). Once in the airplane, the BT did not work for me. I followed all procedures in the manual. Still no BT phone calls. Frustrating. LightSpeed should enable the Sierra headset to be set up and tested for BT functionality at home.

Nice Noise Reduction but not comfortable

  • By James from Pittsboro NC USA on Saturday, February 14, 2015
  • Pros: Nose reduction
  • Cons: uncomfortable
  • Review: Does not fit as comfortably as the Bose A20 but of course there is a price difference. The band across the top of the head is not long enough to make the fit comfortable on the head. The LightSpeed Sierra has great noise reduction.

Lightspeed Zulu headset

  • By Chip from China Grove NC on Saturday, July 31, 2021
  • Pros: Noise canceling works well
  • Cons: Material seems to be coming apart
  • Review: This headset seems to work well but the plastic and rubber components on it are coming apart and getting sticky to the point that I don't want to use it anymore these are expensive headsets and it's sad to see the quality of the material going bad
