great headset

  • By Jeremy from Jacksonville FL USA on Thursday, September 19, 2013
  • Pros: very clear comms, comfortable, great price for ANR
  • Cons: location of stereo/mono switch
  • Review: I am very impressed with this headset. The ANR works very well and I like the fact that I can turn up the volume in either ear individually. The only thing that I dont like is the picture shown has the stereo/mono switch on the outside of the battery box for easy access. The one that I received has the switch on the inside, under the battery cover and it's very difficult switch between them. Other than that, I love it. I would have given it 5 starts if it was not for the location of the stereo/mono switch.

This is the 2nd I purchased

  • By Bjorn from Burnsville MN USA on Tuesday, October 15, 2013
  • Pros: AA battery, easier and less expensive too replace. Has one of the highest noise reductions on the market.
  • Cons: After extended use it does tend to feel too tight (1.5 hours or more).
  • Review: I recently got my pilot certificate and had first bought one of these head sets for my training; it's half the price of many ANR headsets yet performs very well. I purchased the 2nd for my wife now that she'll be flying with me; very much worth the money. Another reason I purchased this is because the battery pack is for AA's, not 9 volts.

Pretty good but not the best

  • By T140V from Turlock, ca on Friday, May 04, 2012
  • Pros: fit, comfort, clarity
  • Cons: cord is weak and needs to be of better quality
  • Review: Now That I have owned the RA950 for six months I can can give you a pointer about the battery life. Be sure to unplug the headset from your audio system when you shut down. The battery will disconnect automatically and save the life of it.
    The only problem I've had is the cord at the base of the headset is made of a very thin gage wire. I have had to resolder the wires to the inside of the earphone by pulling slack into the earphone and stripping back the outer sheath exposing more fresh wire. The wire's break right at the base and I have fixed two headsets this way. They need to use stronger wire at that spot due to coiling the wire into the carrying bag they give you with this product.
    Other than that {which might seem extreme to some}I think the RA950 is great for the half the price of the more common brands.

Good and Affordable headset

  • By Bjorn from Burnsville MN USA on Saturday, February 23, 2013
  • Pros: Affordable, efficient, work well
  • Cons: Foam pads around ears not as comfortable as more expensive headsets
  • Review: I really like this headset. I had looked at getting the $600 Lightspeed Sierra ANR headset because I had tried that one out and really liked it. The foam pads on the ear muffs are not as comfortable as the Lightspeed, however for half the price I was willing to deal with that small inconvenience until I earn my private pilot certificate. If you have the money go for the Lightspeed, but if you're on a budget these are well worth it.

I would buy this product again.

  • By Laurie from Spotsylvania VA USA on Friday, January 21, 2011
  • Pros: Great noise reduction, comfortable
  • Cons: short intermittent humming, usually just a short distraction. Does not affect transmission
  • Review: Met expectations. I was concerned over the low price and wanted quality. Headset is comfortable, I am a student and my longest flight so far has been a little over 2 hours
