Great beginner headset
This is a great example of an inexpensive headset that does the job. Considering the low price.... It makes the noise of the airplane tolerable for extended periods of time, is reasonably comfortable, and doesn't appear to be likely to fall apart. Really, for $110, what else can you expect?

Overall 5 stars. I can't imagine a better headset for this price.

All the other categories 5 stars because, again, I can't imagine expecting MORE for a headset at this price.

I have only used them once so far and I am very happy with my purchase
I read the review that someone wrote about HS-1A microphone sounding better that Light Speeds and I will have to agree. The one time I have had a chance to use this head set I was flying with someone that had a Light Speed head set and in my opinion my ASA HS-1A sounded better. It is comfortable too. The one thing I found odd was the HS-1A has a stereo/ mono switch and when it was in mono I could only hear in one ear. In stereo both ears sounded great and the separate volumes worked fine. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. Any way I am very happy with my purchase.

Works Great
For an affordable spare headset, this unit works great. Both my daughter and girlfriend have used it and both felt comfortable during their flights. Good bank for the buck.

Great headset for this student!
My flight school surprisingly didn't have much advice to share on picking out a headset, so I bought this one because it was inexpensive and figured once I knew more and had tried this one out I would be informed for my next purchase. This headset has been great! Very comfortable, easy to use, audio is very clear and the volume knobs adjust very easily. The mike boom is easy to move and it stays where you put it. I only have about ten hours in a Cessna 172 but I think this headset does a great job of muffling the noise. Very happy with this purchase!

Good value. Clear reception and comfortable. I had trouble hearing ATC with my more expensive headset because they were actually for jet use.

Pleasantly Surprised!
I was shocked by how good these sounded once I plugged them in! I had been borrowing an old set of David Clark's from a friend. These actually sounded better and super clear! I could hear the AWOS much better than on my buddy's used DC's. They don't come with any case which is sort of a hassle because now I have to order one of those.

ASA Headset
Decent first headsetnor a headset for passengers on short flights. You get what you pay for. These work great but after 90 minutes they become increasingly uncomfortable. Good for initial training. I upgraded but stilllkeep these as a backup.
