The audio fidelity is outstanding for bluetooth music. The mic and audio radio communication is very clear. For me, the headset is very comfortable even on 3+ hour flights. The kevlar cord is really flexible and seems like it will be very durable.October 17, 2017Purchased

3 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesNot bad and not as expectedTitle is share your experience. First off I was totally excited until I opened the box. If I have to question if it's NEW then it's not!... I can say the headset looked as it was either tried on or removed from the box. The cord was wire tied back together sloppy. No plastic film on the volume controller and the head pad had something on it. I did not call sport's to complain. As for the headset, it's totally awesome and would rate it at 4 stars. The only 2 complaints would be the volume control is sloppy loose and should be digital. And the cord is a little short.October 8, 2017Purchased

1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLightspeed Zulu 3 HeadsetI bought this as a second headset for my RV-7. I have a old Lightspeed Zulu that works great. Good service when I needed to have work done on older Zulu headset. Sound, Bluetooth, and mic work great.September 27, 2017Purchased
1 month agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesPerfect fit, feel, and performance at a really good price.Have used A20s for the last two years. Decided to upgrade; as Sportys offers a 30 day trial thought I’d give the Zulu 3 a chance. After 4 flights, the noise cancelling is not noticeably different, but the speakers seem a little more clear. They fit/feel a little better over my ears, the mic is the perfect length for my head, the Bluetooth works great (my A20s don’t have BT), I like the Z3 volume slider better than the A20 wheels, and the braided cable is a little easier to manage (and feels a lot stronger). Overall I am loving the Zulu 3, and I’ll be keeping them.September 26, 2017Purchased
