Why an in-ear headset?
If you’ve never used an in-ear headset before, there is a good chance you will never want to return to any other style of headset. Why?
Comfort: Nearly zero clamping force. Say goodbye to headaches, sweaty ears, or discomfort from sunglasses. Avoid “headset hair” since the headset rests gently on your ears, not the top of your head. Easily put on/take off hats without having to remove your headset.
Effective noise reduction at half the cost – and without batteries: Many pilots find that with proper ear-tip insertion, the noise reduction is on-par with Active Noise Reduction (ANR) headsets. In-ear headsets can be enjoyed by both general aviation pilots and airline pilots alike.What makes the AXIS unique?
Small details count: When you’re wearing a headset on long flights, even the smallest details matter. Are there annoying pressure points or sharp edges? Does the microphone stay where you put it? Does it feel good when wearing sunglasses? Unsatisfied with the current competition, we considered each of these questions to develop a product that feels great even after hours in the air.
Innovative FlexiFrame structure: To ensure maximum conformity to your specific head shape, the metal headset frame is highly flexible – also allowing the headset to be stored completely flat, and the mic to be swapped to either the left or right side.
AUX output: While the current version of AXIS does not have Bluetooth capability, you can still use the headset to make outgoing phone calls using the provided AUX cable. Most other headsets only provide an AUX input.
Style: Every detail of the AXIS experience was designed to look and feel good. Matching black acoustic tubes give a clean, minimalist appearance compared to competing in-ear headsets.Quality and durability
We carefully selected the highest quality electronic components (premium Knowles™ microphone, drivers, and dampers) for high-quality, reliable audio.
Despite its light weight, the AXIS is extremely durable. The extra-long strain reliefs at the intercom jacks provide exceptional cable protection.
Each headset undergoes a series of comprehensive functional checks, including an automated acoustical test against RTCA DO-214A standards, and a manual test of all functionality.
Unlike some competitor headsets which have delicate speaker electronics just outside the ear tips, AXIS speakers are safely located in durable nylon capsules on the frame. This reduces the risk of damage from moisture and earwax, or from tugging on thin wires. The speakers connect to the ear tips through strong, flexible acoustic tubing which is easily Thanks to its unique flexible structure, the headset is designed for ultra-compact, flat storage in its custom-designed case. For optimal organization, the case includes compartments for storing spare ear tips, and is perfectly sized to fit documents such as your pilot certificate and passport.
Left/right seat adaptability: The headset can be adapted in seconds for use in either the left or right seat – ideal for check airmen and flight instructors.
Compatible with a variety of ear plugs: A generous selection of 6 different pairs of ear plugs (including Comply™ and 3M™) is provided to help you find the perfect fit for your ear.
Adjustable mic gain: We offer a user-adjustable microphone gain so you can set the gain most appropriate for your aircraft. Aircraft with a HOT mic system (such as the ERJ/CRJ) may benefit from the LOW gain setting.Other features
AUX input: Using the provided 3.5 mm TRRS AUX input cable, you can stream audio from a smartphone/tablet to your headset.
AUX output: Using the provided audio cable, you can connect your headset to a smartphone to make phone calls (such as to maintenance, a clearance delivery phone number, or during a worst-case lost communications scenario) without taking your headset off.
Extra-long tubes: If you want to use the headset as a passenger (such as during a commute) and avoid having a microphone in front of your mouth, you could attach the extra-long tubes and wear the headset around your neck.
Lapel clip: Attach to part of your clothes or the aircraft to create cable slack
Ear cushions: For those with sensitive ears, two cushions are provided that can be attached to the frame over the ears in order to enhance comfort

"It’s supremely comfortable. These feel lighter than air, as if wearing nothing at all. There is no squeeze around my head. Overall, this is the very best headset device I’ve ever encountered."L.C., Embraer 175 Captain
"This headset was far more comfortable relative to other ANR and in-ear headsets I have worn. Overall I would give this headset a two thumbs up. By far the most comfortable and practical headset for 121 turbojet operations."F.O., Embraer 175 Captain
"I’ve flown almost 50 hours with the AXIS headset. Different intercoms and audio panels and so far it's the best headset I’ve used hands down! Noise reduction is on par with the [competitor in-ear headset], but your headset is more comfortable. Plus, I really appreciate the compact storage case."A.B., Flight Instructor
"Lightweight and nothing on my head. Very quiet."C.W., Embraer 175 Captain
"Correctly positioned, the headset was very comfortable with no ear tugging or microphone placement issues. The black foam tips worked perfectly."D.H., Cessna 172 pilot
"Enjoying the headset very much. I feel much more comfortable with it now and I’m getting better at putting the ear plugs in. The set has thus far worked flawlessly. The headset gets better with each use as I get used to it. Extremely comfy, easy to pack, light weight and no more clamp head."K.O., Embraer 175 Captain
"Overall the design is more comfortable than my [high-end ANR headset] after a full day."Z.S., CRJ-700 First Officer
"Very well built. The headset case is awesome in that it is much smaller than any other headset case I have used."J.S., Embraer 175 First Officer
"They are an innovative design and I do like that they are much less intrusive/more comfortable - especially if wearing a hood."D.C., Flight instructor
"Had 5 flights last week and wore the Axis for all but one of them. I did this to baseline myself to what I was used to. Although not noise canceling, the Axis has better sound quality compared to the [high-end ANR headset]. I would have never thought I would say or even think that. "P.B., Flight instructor
