NEW Aircraft Headset *Does not SQUEEZE head in "vice grip":
$99.95

There are two major classes of aviation headsets.- First, there are the "heavyweights" which clamp the wearer's head very tightly ("like a vice," some say), and which reduce the sound of the engine to nearly inaudible levels, obliterating useful sounds, such as the stall-warning horn. Then, there are the "lightweights," which resemble the small headphones used with personal stereos (i.e. Walkman*). Lightweights are quite comfortable, but they reduce the engine sound little, if at all. This limits their usefulness in piston-engine aircraft.

The Model AIR-680 does not fit into either of the above categories. It is lighter than most of the "heavyweights," and it does not clamp the wearer's head tightly like those headsets do. Distinguishing it from lightweights, its large, padded, over-the-ear muffs reduce the engine sound sufficiently for clear communications, in typical piston-engine airplanes. This "in-between" design philosophy provides what may be the perfect compromise! Users report that they are able to wear the AIR-680 headset for many hours of flying, although they could tolerate typical aviation headsets for only 20 to 30 minutes. If hearing protection is a major concern, we suggest wearing foam earplugs, many of which provide over 28 dB noise attenuation, UNDER the AIR-680 earpieces. This headset's can provide powerful e enough output to easily be heard clearly through the earplugs.

This headset has been in continuos USA production since 1989. A major airframe manufacturer has seen fit to specify it as "orginal equipment," enabling its use in commuter arliners. We are pleased to offer Free USA shipping, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. We also offer a 30-day money back guaranty.
