Lightspeed’s family grew a little bigger this week with the company’s release of the Zulu 3 automatic noise reduction headset, designed to build on the success of the earlier Zulu and Zulu 2 products.
While incorporating enhancements that boost comfort and durability, the Lightspeed Zulu 3 retains the sleek, high-tech look of its predecessors and popular features like Bluetooth phone and music. The Zulu 3 offers the durability and longevity of nearly 100 percent stainless steel and magnesium construction, user-adjustable mic gain, and ear seals that, according to Lightspeed, deliver more comfort than their nearest competitor by offering 50 percent more space inside the cup and 20 percent more surface area.
Lightspeed says the Zulu 3’s new contoured ear seals hug the curve of the jaw for a more natural fit that increases comfort and stability. The Zulu 3’s new lighter cables — the same ones standard on the PFX and the Tango — are built around a Kevlar core that’s stronger and more flexible than standard connections.
The company offers a free optional taller head pad that ensures comfort and performance on smaller head shapes. The Zulu 3 offers a standard seven-year warranty, two years more protection on other premium headsets, Lightspeed says.
The Zulu 3 is available with Dual GA, LEMO (panel powered) and U-174 (Heli) connectors, and sells for $850.
