1 month agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent Noise reduction & initial qualityThe Zulu 3 is a huge improvement compared to my previous DC headset. The quality seems high although that will only be determined based on how many years they ultimately last. They are larger and a bit more cumbersome than my old headset and I do wish I could install the mic onto my right (rather than left) ear as it gets in the way of my shoulder harness. A little undecided if I’ll keep them or return as the left side only mic is annoying.April 30, 2018Purchased

2 months agoWould You Recommend?YesNot right for meLightspeed Zulu 3 is a quality product. It is well built. Unfortunately the connection under the left ear cup protrudes to far for my application. The retractable shoulder belt in Cessna 182T from right seat, while instructing, strikes the cord, breaks seal on ear cup and causes a popping noise. I would also recommend the mic boom be made about a half an inch longer to center on mouth. Great headset, just did not work for me. Had to return it.March 31, 2018Purchased
2 months agoWould You Recommend?YesZulu 3 vs Bose -- Zulu winsCompared comfort, fit, and noise cancelling with the Bose A20 in actual in-flight comparison. Zulu 3 won. Love the comfort and fit. Still getting used to the sound quality in ANR mode. Used to a Telex 50. Still too new to evaluate durability and reliability.March 30, 2018Purchased
2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat HeadsetI initially bought a Zulu 2 and had no complaints. It was a good headset however, I wanted the better noise reduction yada yada yada so I bought the PFX as my primary headset and had nothing but problems. Very poor battery life even after the update, and all kinds of problems. Finally, after a 5 day trip in the last leg the headset started making a horrendous noise and I was unable to hear ANYTHING. So I called Lightspeed and traded it in on a Zulu 3 which is great!! Comfortable for 4- 8 hrs of flying a day and every bit as good as the PFX when it was working.March 26, 2018Would You Recommend?YesRepeat BuyerSecond set. We split flights between a Bonanza and a Comanche so went with two plug style. Great battery life. Good value. WAY more comfortable for us than Brand B.March 13, 2018Purchased
