The Lightspeed Zulu 3 Headset

Save $50 on each Zulu headset when buying two or more. Your discount will show in the shopping cart. 

The most comfortable, most durable headset Lightspeed has ever made!

Lightspeed engineers researched how pilots perceive noise at various frequencies in the cockpit, then developed technology providing focused noise attenuation over the most critical ranges. The result is the Lightspeed Zulu 3, a headset with the ultimate performance profile and industry-leading total noise cancellation attributes.

Quiet
With patent-pending Microport Vent technology and new electronic cancellation components, the Zulu 3 offers improved active noise reduction (ANR) consistency and performance over a deep, broad range of low frequency noise. The magnesium ear cup is superior at blocking out high frequency noise.

Comfort

  • Weighing in at about 13 ounces, the Lightcomfort design includes plush ear seals, exceptional fit and 15% less side pressure.
  • Performance ear seals are tapered to provide a more natural fit, for greater comfort and stability.
  • Plush ear seals provide 20% more surface area than competitors, for a better seal around glasses frames and a more comfortable distribution of side pressure.
  • Larger cup cavity provides 50% more space for your ears, allowing the entire ear to fit comfortably inside, while preventing the pain caused by seals pressing against the edge of the ear
  • Low-pro file stainless steel headband follows the curve of the head for more comfortable distribution of weight and side pressure

Durability

  • New rugged cables built around a Kevlar core deliver more strength and flexibility with less weight than standard cables
  • Nearly 100% of the headset is made from stainless steel and magnesium
  • Magnesium ear cups are both strong and light, while delivering superior high-frequency noise attenuation
  • A low-profile, stainless steel headband provides lightweight durability and excellent cabin clearance.

Clarity

  • The Dual Aperture Disc™ microphone provides greater noise cancellation for unparalleled voice clarity, more intelligible communications with crisp, rich audio
  • Exclusive, user-adjustable mic gain helps balance loud and soft voices in a multi-headset environment
  • Front Row Center™ (FRC), stereo cross-feed technology, and redesigned speakers deliver crisp, rich audio and unparalleled music fidelity

FlightLink for iPad / iPhone
The first in-flight cockpit recording application for the Apple iPad and iPhone. The free FlightLink app works seamlessly with the Lightspeed Zulu 3 headsets to capture and retrieve incoming and outgoing communications. Store multiple flight recordings on your device or computer, and enjoy instant playback of Air Traffic Control transmissions. On the iPad, draw notes on the large scratchpad. Easily toggle from other apps to access recordings and notes.

Bluetooth Connectivity
The new Zulu's full-function Bluetooth connectivity provides enhanced sound quality for voice, music or compatible audio devices.

Cell Phone/Music Connection
An integrated control box auxiliary input offers an additional option for connecting a cell phone, music player or other audio device.

Stereo or Mono
Match audio panel inputs with a quick switch to stereo or mono.

ComPriority
Never miss important radio communications with patented ComPriority which lowers the volume of any auxiliary device automatically during radio or intercom transmissions.

Auto Shutoff
Lightspeed's proprietary Auto Shutoff feature saves battery life by automatically shutting down the headset power when not in use.

Industry Leading Warranty
Zulu 3 is backed by an industry best 7 year warranty.

Includes
Carrying case, cell phone/music patch cords, cord clip, 2 AA batteries, foam windscreen

Lightspeed Zulu 3 versus Lightspeed Zulu.2
New contoured ear seals are designed to hug the curve of the jaw, reducing side pressure to get a more natural fit for more comfort and stability. These ear seals create 30-50% more space for the ear than other ANR headsets — a key feature of long-term user comfort. The Lightspeed Zulu 3 also includes a free taller head pad to ensure maximum comfort and performance on smaller head shapes (redemption instructions are in the User Guide). In addition the Lightspeed Zulu 3 is outfitted with new cables built around a Kevlar core, which are stronger, lighter, and more flexible than standard cables. And, the Lightspeed Zulu 3 will be backed by an industry-best 7-year warranty (the industry standard is 5 years at best).

  • By on Friday, March 31, 2023
  • Pros:
  • Review: Although the ANR feature and comfort to wear are above average, I was disappointed because of the inability to record ATC comms on my IPad with their software as advertised (via Bluetooth). In order to record ATC comms (as advertised) you have to use an additional cord and adapter that goes from the headset control unit to your Ipad vice just using a Bluetooth connection. In my opinion, I rather minimize the number of dangling cords in the cockpit than add any. If you do not desire to do any recordings, then these are some decent pricey headsets. You might want to consider AVCOMM ANR headsets at half the price.

Lightspeed Zulu 3 Headset is working great!

  • By Alan the Vision Jet Pilot from Eden Prairie MN USA on Wednesday, March 29, 2023
  • Pros: Great quality at a reasonable price.
  • Review: While I had originally wanted to purchase a David Clark One-X headset, there was a 6 month wait at the time I wanted one. I was a bit worried about the quality of a Lightspeed headset, but now that I have owned one for 6 months, I can say the quality is great. It is a very solid build and everything works as advertised. Could I have paid a lot more for a Bose? Sure, but having used Bose headsets extensively I can say that I can't detect a difference. Save the $400 upcharge for a Bose and get one of these!

  • By Alan the Vision Jet Pilot from Eden Prairie MN USA on Wednesday, March 29, 2023
  • Pros: Great quality at a reasonable price.
