At first I thought it was bad batteries but after 3 battery changes I gave up on these and returned them.
When they worked they were quite comfortable (more so than the flight school rentals) and the ANR was quite decent. I just didn't have time to exchange them and be without a headset in the middle of my schooling so I bought some Lightspeeds and returned these. Sporty's CS was great about getting this done.February 2, 2018Purchased

Loud hum prevents you from hearing radio calls and microphone failed multiple times. Company stated that it was unable to diagnose defects and replacement had the same problems.January 7, 2018Durability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesJust what I neededI have a set of old David Clarks that I use. But my passengers I fly with prefer these. They're comfortable, easy-to-use, and the ANR is just as good as anything else out there. For the price, we're actually pretty happy with these.January 2, 2018Purchased

3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSuper FAROsI was going to purchase the $$200$$ FARO Stealth with out the noise reduction but it was sold out. Thank god because the noise reduction function works great. It blocks out low level rumbling engine noise and all I can seem to hear is the high pitch of the propeller spinning and pushing the air around the aircraft.
Only negative side is that the batteries run out fast. Therefore, swing by your local WalMart and buy yourself a good set of rechargeable batterries. I got the energizer 4 AA pack with 2000 MAH per battery. There is a cheaper pack with rechargeable batteries and charger but those only have 1300 MAH. Basically the 2000 MAH holds more energy than the 1300 MAH and should last longer between recharges.
Good luck SUPER PILOTS. =)December 5, 2017Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesA great value!I bought this for passengers, since I have a Bose headset for myself. This also gave me the opportunity to compare the two.
Surprisingly, the ANR on the Faro headset is close to the Bose for less than half the price!
The only downside I found is the ANR is very sensitive to earcup positioning. When worn with thick sunglasses there is a very noticeable reduction in performance.
With that in mind, this headset is an exceptional value!November 28, 2017Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFaro Stealth ANR headsetHave been using BOSE headset 10+ years. I wanted inexpensive ANR backup headset. Tested my new FARO STEALTH ANR headset one day after I received it and it performed as expected. It felt a little heavy at first compare to the BOSE but after 30 minutes flight I got used to it and I forgot that I am using a different headset. My son likes the AUX input to listen to his music in flight. I recommend it for the price.

For quality, comfort and features, they probably are not better than anything costing more than these, but are likely WAAY better than cheaper or similar priced options.October 25, 2017Purchased
8 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat ANR for a great priceThe ANR works great at reducing the noise level even further in the C172’s that I have been flying. I have found it comfortable to wear for at least an hour at a time. I haven’t worn it for longer than that yet but suspect it will continue to be comfortable for longer flights as well.September 28, 2017Purchased

This is my first ANR headset and it really works well. I am getting back into flying and building experience prior to test flying my Zenith Zodiac. This makes it so easy to bear the radio or passenger. I recommend this unconditionally- great comfort, noise cancelling and very affordable.September 17, 2017Purchased
