2 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood headset, but disappointed with bluetooth recording featureThe headset performed well so far with good noise reduction and comfort. I didn't use the headset long enough to comment on durability.
I am disappointed, however, with their iPhone app that records the communication through bluetooth (FlightLink). The app does not provide a way to filter out inactive segments of time (when nobody is talking), which is a major annoyance if you have long flights with short interactions with ATC. The app has a function called "compress recording", (which sounds promising) but running it doesn't seem to do anything useful. And if you think you can export the audio to another app that will filter out the inactive time segments, then forget it. The app does not provide any way to export the audio to other apps or other media. You can listen to it only from within the FlightLink app.March 4, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat for trainingAs a student pilot I’ve found the recording ability via Bluetooth to be awesome. I record my flight lessons and have the ability to go back over my lessons to speed my flight training.January 2, 2018Purchased

Thus far it is extremely light and very comfortable. The ear cushions seal very well without clamping pressure. The sound transmission is excellent. It is so light I hope that it holds up. I don't have many doubts that it will.
So far, very satisfied. My wife just got an up grade as well...my old one.

I broke down and bought two Zulu 3's as I just got a new 2-seat plane. Of course my wife was shocked at the cost. The clarity and ease of hearing the other pilots and centers is outstanding. Should have ponied up the money and bought an ANR set a long time ago. She'll appreciate them on our next long flight.November 19, 2017Purchased
