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

What a great headset. In and out of the cockpit during flight training. In and out of the case and flight bag multiple times a week, this is a great headset. I love the bluetooth, the ANR is real good and I don’t feel any clamping as I have in the past with my passive headsets.

Comfortable fit
Up until now flying single engine I've been skeptical of the value of ANR. I was pleased to see that it worked similarly to PNR, and didn't obscure any sounds feedback i usually get. Still wish there was a way to manually turn off ANR for the sake of battery life.

Otherwise they fit comfortably on my head, and my ears aren't sore from where the cup closes in over them.

Perfect First Headset
This 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.

Crisp and clear
I 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.

The 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?

IFR training
Being 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.

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.
