High performance without the high price

A good headset is essential for safe and comfortable flying, but too often pilots are faced with a tough choice: pay over $1000 for a great headset, or buy a cheap one that is uncomfortable and lacking important features. Faro has solved this problem with their new Stealth Headsets. These sleek and stylish headsets have the high-end features you want, like music input and optional active noise reduction, but at prices you can afford. Perfect for student pilots, passengers or anyone who appreciates a great value – not just a great price.

Impressive active noise reduction
ANR headsets, which use microphones and speakers to electronically reduce noise, offer a new level of quiet in the cockpit. They have changed the way pilots use headsets, but they have typically been unaffordable for many pilots. The Stealth ANR Headset includes both passive and active noise reduction providing up to 52 dB of noise reduction, but still costs under $400.

Music input
Long cross-country flights can get boring, but listening to music can help keep your attention – and maybe your sanity. The Stealth Headset’s aux input jack is conveniently located on the juncture box where the headphone and microphone plugs come together, and an auxiliary input cable is included. Just plug in and enjoy.

Double thick ear seals
A headset is only as good as the ear seals, so Faro spent months designing the perfect material. The result is a set of ultra-soft, protein leather ear seals that are over twice as thick as other brands. This provides ultimate comfort with maximum passive noise reduction.

Noise-canceling electret microphone
Fully adjustable microphone boom is reversible and features a noise-canceling electret microphone. This delivers high quality, crystal clear communication so you sound like a pro even if it’s your first solo. The 360 degree rotatable microphone boom is fully adjustable to provide the perfect microphone placement.

Stereo audio with dual volume controls
Independently control volume levels to both the left and right ear, with no confusing controls. Faro Stealth headsets also feature a stereo/mono switch so they are adaptable to most aircraft intercom systems. Even if your intercom is mono, you’ll still hear music in stereo.

Helpful customer support
You will probably never need it, but Faro Stealth headsets include a worry-free 3-year warranty and friendly, US-based customer service.

Great Product except on thing....

Recommended

This is a great headset for the price and easy to use for a student pilot like myself. The only thing is I must have gotten a bad headset because I have only had them for around a month to two and the right speaker has no audio. Besides that, I would recommend this as a good beginning headset.

SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE
Thank you for the review, and please accept our apologies for the speaker issue. Normally if you only have sound coming through one speaker, this indicates a stereo/mono issue. Remove the batteries, and flip the S/M switch and see if this fixes the issue. If this does not fix the issue, we will gladly switch them out for a new pair. Please contact us at support@sportys.com.

Rusty Pilot Makes a Transition to a High-Tech Device!

My, goodness... This type of device -- at this cost-effective and attractive price-point -- wasn't available to me when I last flew in 1981. Now, there's no concern whatsoever about hearing any communications at towered or non-towered airports; the conversations are loud-and-clear; the thick, position adjustable, leather ear muffs are an excellent feature. Plus, the active noise reduction feature significantly reduces engine noise, too. When coupled to an iPhone, phone calls are a snap as inputs to the microphone are executed in a crystal clear manner. In addition, listening to music -- with the iPhone as the source -- is easily accomplished with the provided interface cable assembly. I highly recommend the Faro Aviation Stealth ANR headset from Sporty's as an essential and necessary pilot tool in today's busy cockpit environment!

Works well!!

Recommended

I ordered the headset and took it out for a flight. I was disappointed on the active noise reduction. I had flown with a Bose quiet comfort 2 headset with the microphone boom you can insert. The ANR of the FARO was less. I went to the Faro aviation website and saw all the positive feedback and believe mine was just not working well. So I called Faro and talked to them. They sent me another headset and the gel earpads. I tested the second headset and it worked great. I flew for about an hour and I am really happy with them. This is a great lower cost ANR headset without losing quality. A note on the gel ear pads. They are very difficult to put on, they seem to small and you have to use a small spoon as a shoehorn to get them on.
