Lightspeed Zulu 3 Headset
Lightspeed's best headset yet
The Lightspeed Zulu headset has been a pilot favorite for years, offering an unbeatable mix of performance and value. Whether you’re flying a two-seat trainer or a large turboprop, Zulu delivers outstanding ANR performance and industry-leading Bluetooth options - all at a price under $900. The latest generation, Zulu 3, is Lightspeed’s best yet, with enhanced comfort, durability and value. Includes carrying case, cell phone and music patch cords, cord clips, two AA batteries and foam windscreen for the microphone.
More comfort New, contoured ear seals are designed to hug the curve of the jaw, reducing side pressure to get a more natural fit for more comfort and stability. With 20% more surface area than other models, these new ear seals create a better seal so they work better than ever with glasses. They also create 30-50% more space for the ear than other ANR headsets — a key feature of long-term user comfort. Plus, a taller head pad option is included free, which ensures maximum comfort and performance on smaller head shapes.
More durability Zulu 3 is outfitted with new cables built around a Kevlar core, which are stronger, lighter, and more flexible than standard cables. They’re much less likely to get tangled or damaged in the cockpit – a real advantage. The more durable cables complement the other premium materials used in the rest of the headset construction, including the magnesium cups, sliders, and the stainless steel headband.
More support Zulu 3 is backed by a 7-year warranty, the best in aviation. Plus, Lightspeed’s famous support team means you’ll always have a friendly, helpful person to assist.
No compromises Zulu 3 still has the award winning Lightspeed ANR and all of the most popular features, such as Bluetooth for phone and music, Auto Shutoff ™, and ComPriority.™ It also has an exclusive user adjustable mic gain adjustment to get the audio and side tone just right for all voices.
FlightLink compatibility Capture and retrieve incoming and outgoing communications with Lightspeed’s free app for iPad. Great for student pilots, instrument pilots or anyone who wants a digital copilot.

"The Zulu 3 hits the sweet spot for me - a few hundred dollars less than the top end headsets, but packed with features. I love the Bluetooth audio for long cross countries since I can wirelessly pair my iPhone, and the stainless steel headband will last forever."
