JC MayerleStaff PIREP

"As a new pilot, the Sierra is a ideal for my flight bag. It's priced right, but I don't have to sacrifice important features like ANR or Bluetooth. In my opinion, it's the best bang for the buck."

Plus: High-end features, mid-range price

Plus: Soft ear seals and headband

Minus: Heavier than Zulu.2 headset

Pros: Soft, comfortable ear pads seal well even around glasses. ANR works very well making it much easier to hear others talking. Cons: With the sound of the engine pretty much eliminated, I now hear the rattles in the plane that I'm not sure I want to hear ;-) I'm very pleased with the Sierra headset. As I'm a student pilot that intends to be basically a weekend pilot I couldn't justify spending the additional $300-$400 for the other high end ANR headsets out there. If I were planning to wear them for 8 hours a day, that might have influenced my choice, but for the flying that I've done since buying the Sierras I've found them to be a pleasure to use.

more than I need as a beginner...
I bought this headset even though I am a brand new student pilot. I have big ears, and getting over some nervousness on the mic! Wanted something comfortable, and something that I can be sure I'm hearing everything. Very comfy, sound is clear, seems well-built. I hope to get many years out of this headset. Pricey, but very nice.... and cheaper than Bose.

Pros: So much better than the Bose headsets, and as good as the Zulu for less money. Cons: I don't have two more of these headsets yet... Comfort is great, sound quality superb, and noise reduction is great!

Pros: Feels good after long use, ANR works really well, comfortable, adjustable mike, cheaper than Zulu and A20, but probably provides same level of comfort and ANR Cons: $600 is still a lot of money. Control unit is largish, turns on to easily (in bag) Recommended if you want to save $300 over higher end units.

Pros: Best value for the money if you want an ANR set that will last a very long time. I can't see spending the extra money for the slightly noticeable performance improvements of the Zulu 2 or A-20's unless you are a professional. I would not spend more as a C172 personal flyer

Pros: The ANR works great - it seemed like I was in a different airplane - as does the bluetooth phone interface. The ear cups fit close and are comfortable even with glasses. Great price for an ANR headset. Cons: The head band seems to be heavy plastic. I don't know if this will be a problem in the future, but it seems very sturdy. The MP3 player interface is via cable, and it works very well, but if you need/want a bluetooth interface you will have to pay more.

I am a student pilot and began reviewing headsets about 6 hours into flight school. I reviewed all the brands, ANR and PNR along with the pros and cons of each. I wasn't planning to spend $600 on a new headset starting out, but I'm glad I did. This headset fits amazingly well and is very comfortable. After the plane is started and the avionics are turned on, I prefer to put the headset on before turning on the ANR to hear how big the difference is. The engine noise is reduced to a slight hum and the cabin goes 'quiet'. I can hear/understand my instructor and tower easily with great clarity. Bluetooth Pairing to my Samsung S3 was quick and easy. I would recommend this headset to anyone looking to purchase one.....Spend the extra 200-250 for ANR, it is worth it. You will have the headset for many years to come.

Just awesome!!!
As a student pilot, I started with David Clark headset provided by my school but we all know how it is when used by many many students... By the end of the flight, both my ears and head were hurting due to soft gel cups constantly hurting. One day my instructor borrowed me his Bose A20 headset to try and I was like Wow!!! The feeling and clarity was just unbelievable and it was so soft and comfortable but it comes with a price... So I started doing my research and came across Lightspeed Sierra and read thru all the reviews and all recommended it... I was told by my instructor to start with David Clark 13.4 headset (~$300.00) but twice the price I can get Lightspeed... So I started saving $50 per week for this headset and I have to say... IT IS WORTH EVERY $$$. Exact same feeling and clarity like Bose A20 but half the price... I just did my first 160nm solo cross-country and gotta say... I will give two thumbs up for LIGHTSPEED SIERRA.

BEST ANSWER: I have two Lightspeed Sierra headsets and all of the other stuff (charts, plates, iPad, knee board, lights, batteries, SP-400 NAV/COM radio) from my old flight bag in my new Flight Gear Captain's bag. It all fits with room to spare. The bright interior panels are nice. I found it works better to put the headsets in with the band down and the cables on top. It has been a great bag.
