3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesPerfect First HeadsetThis is the first headset that I have purchased as a new student pilot, and after several flights I couldn’t be happier. This headset is orders of magnitude better than both the passive headset and ANR headsets I borrowed previously from flight school/flying club. The headset appears very well made and the ear and headband pads are very soft and incredibly comfortable. The ANR is fantastic and definitely worth it even for relatively short flight lessons. I haven’t experienced any of the buzzing or squealing that I experienced with some less expensive ANR headsets, even with sunglasses or foggles on. I think this is the perfect headset for new pilots and for anyone who doesn’t want to spend $1k+ on the high end models.March 6, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesCrisp and clearI ordered the Sierra because they seemed to fit my head better than the Zulu. I was worried they wouldn’t be as good. Ive been very pleased with my decision. They are lightweight and have a good seal on my ears. The sound is great and the Bluetooth to my phone sounds good too. Very happy.January 16, 2018Purchased

3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe lightspeed sierra is great. It’s very comfortable and seems to work well. My only concern is that sometimes it doesn’t pickup the first part of my radio call. It’s annoying to have to reprat myself on a radio call or when talking to my instructor. Maybe this is a problem across all headsets?November 8, 2017Purchased
4 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesIFR trainingBeing a low time pilot and renting planes I was fine with the reliability and durability of my old David Clark’s. But now going through IFR training I needed higher performance for clarity and noise cancellation. The ratings were good and the warranty good so I went with Sierras. I am very impressed and happy with their performance.October 9, 2017Purchased

He is very happy with it and especially likes the Bluetooth for music while cruising.........overall a good headset for General Aviation.September 5, 2017Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLove em. Great ANR. Comfortable with minimal head clamping, and I have a big head. Bluetooth works great. So far, so good. Time will tell since I've only had them for a short period. Would've like to have had the Kevlar chord. For $650, you'd think they'd come in a better carrying case. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.August 15, 2017Purchased

The app only records me.August 14, 2017Purchased
