AKG, which has for more than 65 years produced professional audio products for music professionals from Frank Sinatra to Quincy Jones, has gotten in the aviation game with a light and cool looking headset, the AV100. The headset is completely purpose built; there aren't any existing components from other AKG products.

The headset has a carbon fiber look, though it is not made of carbon fiber. It weighs 12.2 ounces and features what AKG calls a “hybrid active noise reduction” approach. Other features include Bluetooth for mobile phone or portable music player connectivity and a remote activated LED map light in the right earcup.

Look for an upcoming flight test with the AV100 in Flying soon.
