JC MayerleStaff PIREP

"As a new pilot, the Sierra is a ideal for my flight bag. It's priced right, but I don't have to sacrifice important features like ANR or Bluetooth. In my opinion, it's the best bang for the buck."

Plus: High-end features, mid-range price

Plus: Soft ear seals and headband

Minus: Heavier than Zulu.2 headset

Good headset
Overall a very good headset. Is it as good as a Bose? I don’t know. It is comfortable and offers good noise canceling. Some day I will try a Bose and see if it is worth the extra money.

Lightspeed Sierra
These seem to work pretty well, just a slight bit of background noise that I had difficulty eliminating. I have only used them for one trip so far though. They are far less expensive than the Bose competitors, therefore they don't quite stack up evenly. But, not a bad value for the purchase price.

Wonderful for the price
It performed everything it describes and while it might not be Bose quality, it did exceptionally well. My first use through the comms was a little limited due to an alternator failure on a night cross country, but having the bluetooth capability was extremely comforting. My only issue was feedback I was getting from the cheap headset the guy in the right seat had. When I put my cheap headset on the feedback didn't exist, it seemed like the ANR was having some issues with it.

I bought these because I am a weekend flyer or don’t see a need to spend over $1000 dollars on a headset I don’t use every day. I like the headset and it’s easy to use however it has a weird hum/rumble noise if my head is not perfectly straight ahead while in the ground. Every time I turn my head I hear the noise but as soon as I look straight ahead it goes away. I’ve got another set of (lower cost) Lightspeed headsets and they don’t do it.

Best Budget ANR Headset
Overall, the Lightspeed Sierra is the best headset for the student or budget-conscious pilot. There are cheaper headsets which do not feature active noise-cancellation. And there are more expensive headsets that offer no significant advantages over the Sierra. This headset will see anyone average student pilot through the end of their training and beyond. And thanks to Lightspeed’s great warranty, you have peace of mind that this will remain the case even if you suffer an unfortunate malfunction.

Flight Gear Padded Headset Case
BEST ANSWER: I have two Lightspeed Sierra headsets and all of the other stuff (charts, plates, iPad, knee board, lights, batteries, SP-400 NAV/COM radio) from my old flight bag in my new Flight Gear Captain's bag. It all fits with room to spare. The bright interior panels are nice. I found it works better to put the headsets in with the band down and the cables on top. It has been a great bag.
