Three Reasons To Buy Your Next Aviation Headset

Reduce the need to ask “say again” with clear communications

When you choose new headsets for your airplane, your choice comes down to three things: Quality, features and comfort. But what you really want is to be able to hear ATC clearly, without feeling like your head is stuck in a vise.

Quality in a Brand that Leads With Innovation

Bose A20
Hear your ATC instructions clearly for hours with 30 percent greater active noise reduction over conventional headsets.Amazon

The active noise cancelling technology of the Bose A20 is an industry leader, and at 12 ounces, pilots love both the comfort and sound quality that the A20 delivers. Yes, you pay for that Bose quality, but you get the features you want in a headset built to last.

ANR Technology Priced for All of Your Airplane’s Seats

When buying new headsets for every seat in your airplane, a value-priced premium ANR model is a smart move.Amazon

If active noise cancelling technology is a “must-have” feature, the Lightspeed Sierra headset offers premium technology at a value price. Advanced ANR, Bluetooth connectivity and a reversible headband design for right/left microphone placement are included in a headset designed for comfort, with compatibility for FlightLink now included for in-flight cockpit recording on iPad or iPhone.

Passive Noise Reduction for Any Budget

Kore Aviation KA-1 headset
If you’re keeping costs down and do not need advanced ANR technology, the KA-1 is a good choice for clear ATC communications.Amazon

In many cases such as student pilots just beginning their journey into the sky, or flight schools needing to outfit their fleet, affordability matters and the Kore Aviation KA-1 headset offers solid features such as 24db of premium noise reduction, mono and stereo support and 3.5mm plug for MP3/iPhone/iPad/Android. The included free carrying case is a nice addition to this value headset.
