High performance without the high price

Finding a good, entry-level headset doesn’t have to be a search for a needle in a haystack. The Faro Stealth Passive Headset provides the right combination of features without a high price tag.

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 up to 26 dB 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.

Awesome Headset!
I've made several flights with this headset and so far I absolutely love it! For the price, I really don't think you could beat it. Very comfortable, lots of noise reduction, and the microphone sounds excellent. I plan on purchasing another one soon for passengers.

So glad to see you Finally Carrying These.
I picked up a pair of these at Oshkosh last year. For the price, its my opinion they are unmatched. Very comfortable and the sound quality is great. Have flown many hours with them without a single problem.

Quality without breaking the bank
If you are looking for a quality headset at a reasonable price I can recommend the Faro stealth passive headset. At $199.00 they do everything the more expensive brands offer. The sound is clear, the workmanship is excellent, and are very comfortable to wear. You will not be disappointed! I'm glad that I purchased two sets.

Great Beginner headset
Just recently bought these as a replacement to the Aero club's old used headset. These worked way better than I expected. The unboxing experience was great and they look beautiful. Only one 2 hour flight with them and they were amazing. No pinching of the head or headaches after. The mic worked pretty well and sound quality is clear. Pros: cheap and great build quality. Independent volume knobs work well Cons: If you wear a pair of sunglasses, make sure the frames are thin to not allow a lot of noise in. Would highly recommend!!! Overall great for beginner pilots and don't want to spend a lot of money.
