The Lightspeed Delta Zulu Headset

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

Lightspeed Delta Zulu is built for your mission with safety, control, and comfort in mind. Lightspeed's newest headset includes their best ANR to date, with the superior comfort and durability you expect from a Zulu, while also introducing ground breaking new technologies that could save the lives of both pilots and passengers.

Safety
Lightspeed's designers and engineers collaborated with a team of highly qualified flight and safetyexperts to develop a revolutionary digital platform and groundbreaking new technologies to make flying safer. Kanari™ smart alert technology built right into the headset provide
s protection by measuring cabin carbon monoxide levels, helping to keep you and your passengers alert and safe with audible warnings. Our free Lightspeed App allows you to also check the CO sensor data visually during flight and review your full history later.

The Delta Zulu also introduces a built-in audio equalization system called HearingEQity™ that ensures crystal clear flight communication. Through an automated 12-frequency hearing test that can be taken through the Lightspeed App, HearingEQity sets the hearing level in each ear of your headset to create your individual hearing profile to compensate for any hearing variations between ears.

Control
The Lightspeed App also allows you to record radio conversations, playback transmissions, draw diagrams, and archive flight recordings for post-
flight briefing and training. Delta Zulu is also the first headset to adopt the UAC plug, allowing you to connect to other devices directly from the headset for charging, data communications, and auxiliary audio.

Comfort
The legendary Zulu comfort and durability continues in the Delta Zulu. Performance ear seals, sturdy cables built around a Kevlar core, full Bluetooth integration, and an industry-best 7-year warranty are still standard in the Lightspeed Delta Zulu headset.

  • Built-in carbon monoxide sensor– Always on and always monitoring cabin carbon monoxide, the new CO sensor is optimally calibrated to provide audible and visual warnings at preset or user defined CO thresholds.
  • HearingEQity™ for custom sound– Based on results from a custom 12-frequency hearing test in the new Lightspeed app, HearingEQity automatically adjusts Delta Zulu to optimize every ATC call and conversation specifically for your individual hearing profile. Individualized profiles can be saved, and different headset users can switch profiles.
  • Changeable battery packs– Easy-to-replace battery pack gives you the option of using rechargeable lithium-ion batteries or AA batteries.
  • The Lightspeed App – Allows you to check sensor data visually during flight, supplying you with instantaneous readouts and historical data. Review safety metrics from prior flights, record conversations, playback transmissions, draw diagrams, and archive flight recordings onto your phone or mobile device for post-flight briefing and training.
  • Bluetooth – Bluetooth wireless technology with A2DP technology enables cell phone communications and stereo music streaming along with alerts from aviation apps.
  • Low-profile comfort – Weighing just 14.9 ounces (including ear seals, head pad and mic boom), Delta Zulu has a low-profile, stainless-steel headband that follows the curve of the head for more comfortable distribution of weight and side pressure.
  • High-performance fit – Delta Zulu’s tapered performance ear seals are designed to hug the curve of the jaw for a natural fit, increasing comfort and clarity while also providing a better seal around eyeglass or sunglass frames. Cup cavities allow the entire ear to fit comfortably inside.
  • Durability and longevity – Made almost entirely of stainless steel and magnesium with durable cables built around a Kevlar core, Delta Zulu is designed to endure the harshest flying environments and last for years to come.
  • Superior quiet – Delta Zulu delivers advanced active noise reduction (ANR) performance over a deep, broad range of low-frequency noise. The magnesium ear cups are superior at blocking out high-frequency noise.
  • Clear comms – The Dual Aperture Disc microphone provides greater noise cancellation for clearer, more intelligible communications. Exclusive, user-adjustable mic gain helps balance loud and soft voices in a multi-headset environment.
  • UAC plug – Delta Zulu is the first headset to adopt the UAC plug, allowing you to connect to other devices directly from the headset for charging, audio, and data transmissions. It can also be charged while flying via USB. Delta Zulu has options for 4 cable configurations, from UAC to USB-A (included), USB-C, 3.5 mm and Lightning plugs (optional).
  • ComPriority™ – Never miss important radio communications with patented ComPriority, which automatically lowers the volume of any auxiliary device during radio or intercom transmissions. The soft mute feature gently eases music back in for a smooth listening transition.
  • Auto Shutoff™ – Lightspeed’s proprietary Auto Shutoff feature saves battery life by automatically shutting down the headset power when not in use.
  • Included accessories – Carrying case, single port wall charger, lithium-ion battery cartridge, AA battery cartridge, UAC to USB-A cable, a cord shirt clip, and a set of personalized icon chips to distinguish multiple headsets. 30-day money-back guarantee – We know that every cockpit and pilot is different. That’s why we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
  • Available configurations – Dual GA, LEMO panel power, U-174. Others available by special order. Please contact Customer Support if your configuration is not listed.
  • 7-year limited warranty – The BEST in the aviation industry. Lightspeed stands by the quality of the Delta Zulu with a comprehensive 7-year warranty of materials and workmanship.
  • Personal Safety Data Partnership Program – An invitation to join the cause of reducing aviation accidents. By opting into the ANONYMOUS collection of sensor data from their headset, customers are providing data that will be used by General Aviation experts and scientists to improve the community’s understanding of safe piloting practices.

Worth the investment!

  • By Greg from Kindred ND USA on Tuesday, February 13, 2024
  • Pros: CO2 detection.
  • Review: Been very happy with the headset. The ANR, Bluetooth, custom hearing setup and CO2 detection features are great. I was doing a run up the other day with a full cabin and the CO2 feature let me know the CO2 level was increasing. Nice to know you have that protection going on in the background. I also like that the cords come in and go out of the same end of the battery pack/volume controller for ease of tucking it in my side compartment. I am confident the more I use it the more I will be pleased with my investment.

  • Pros:
  • Review: Pros:
    Sturdy design, and cord construction
    Built in CO Detector
    Flight Recording via Lightspeed App
    Great passive sound attenuation even without Active noise cancelling in the case of dead batteries, or forgetting to turn the unit on...
    Overall comfort
    Custom sound profile
    Charging port on control unit makes it easy to recharge in flight


    Cons:
    Mic boom can only be on the left side.
    Mic boom is a bit short and only reaches the side of my mouth rather than right in front.
    Mic cutoff is higher than expected (it is [not easily] adjustable)
    Sound is not as clear as main competitor

    This is my first ANR headset, so I don’t have a lot to compare it to in terms of actual flight longevity. I chose this headset primarily due to the CO detection and flight recording capabilities. The CO detection was nice since I primarily rent and I’m often unsure when the onboard CO detector was changed. As for the recording, I like being able to provide friends and family with a recording of special flights as well as being able to replay instructional flights to hear things I may have missed in the heat of the moment. My instructor also bought a Zulu but returned his set for the competitor as a result of the mic boom length and for sounding “like a tin can” in comparison. (He already owned and used the competitor’s product daily). I don’t have that same perspective, so the CO and recording was enough for me to stick with it (and I was just out of the 60-day return period).

    The headset is comfortable, and interface is straightforward. I’ve had it turn off on me (adjustable automatic shutoff feature) a couple of times during preflight, so I just have to check it after starting. I have not played music in flight through the headset, or made a call via Bluetooth, but I don’t think it would be an issue as the sound is clear in the intercom. The recording feature doesn’t work when the intercom is off, so any discussions prior to engine start is captured through the device’s microphone so long as you aren’t connected to Bluetooth yet. (If you are connected via Bluetooth, and the intercom doesn’t receive power, you just get silence… Something to look out for if you’re hoping to capture the audio of preflight discussions.) There are frequent updates for the headset, so be sure to check before your flight when you’re confirming power status. The charging cable isn’t quite as universal as the manufacturer claims. I can’t find any other products or cables that have/use this connector. Inflight charging and a spare alkaline battery cartridge limits that immediate concern.

    When connected to a auto squelch system, the headset seems to need a considerable amount of volume to activate. You’ll either have to get used to talking much louder, or research the fix they have published to increase the gain on the mic. It seems to be a pretty standard complaint. May be related to boom length, but even when extending the mic directly in front of my mouth, it seems to take the same volume to activate. This takes a lot of getting use to, or the fix prescribed by the manufacturer.

    Overall, I’m happy enough with this purchase, but would probably go with the competitor if I had it to do again or when I look to purchase a 2nd ANR for a passenger.

Exceptional. Purchased for son, then my older ANR failed while talking with ATC. Tried his Delta Zulu - well worth the money and will purchase a set for myself.

These are the Best Headset's ever made

  • By John from Saint Charles MO USA on Tuesday, April 04, 2023
  • Pros: I can actually hear and understand everything without listening to back ground noise.
  • Review: I can hear better with my headsets configured than I can hear with my hearing aids... and by a long shot. I mention this to my Ear Doctor and showed them to him and said he was not surprised. These headsets are very well made and work way better than ever imagined.

Tone quality is awesome

  • By Kenneth from Liberty KY USA on Tuesday, April 04, 2023
  • Pros: Besides its performance. I am using this over my Bose A20s.. I like the option of a backup battery pack. Good idea!
  • Review: The equalizer compensates for my hearing losses. The result is superb tone quality. The tone quality in pilots voices stood out. Though I was not listening for it, its quality caught my attention I was surprised by it.

  • Pros: I smiled all day at the sound of silence. The main battery pack last forever! Straight out of the box
  • Review: I sold my David Clark One-X.
    Bose is in serious trouble.
