High performance without the high price

Finding a good, entry-level headset doesn’t have to be a search for a needle in a haystack. The Faro Stealth Passive Headset provides the right combination of features without a high price tag.

Music input
Long cross-country flights can get boring, but listening to music can help keep your attention – and maybe your sanity. The Stealth Headset’s aux input jack is conveniently located on the juncture box where the headphone and microphone plugs come together, and an auxiliary input cable is included. Just plug in and enjoy.

Double thick ear seals
A headset is only as good as the ear seals, so Faro spent months designing the perfect material. The result is a set of ultra-soft, protein leather ear seals that are over twice as thick as other brands. This provides ultimate comfort with up to 26 dB passive noise reduction.

Noise-canceling electret microphone
Fully adjustable microphone boom is reversible and features a noise-canceling electret microphone. This delivers high quality, crystal clear communication so you sound like a pro even if it’s your first solo. The 360 degree rotatable microphone boom is fully adjustable to provide the perfect microphone placement.

Stereo audio with dual volume controls
Independently control volume levels to both the left and right ear, with no confusing controls. Faro Stealth headsets also feature a stereo/mono switch so they are adaptable to most aircraft intercom systems. Even if your intercom is mono, you’ll still hear music in stereo.

Helpful customer support
You will probably never need it, but Faro Stealth headsets include a worry-free 3-year warranty and friendly, US-based customer service.

Good comfortable starter set.
Very comfortable for a lower cost headset. Sound clarity is descent but tends to have a “can like sound” not full tone sound. Good starter/spare set. No other issues that I found yet.

Faro Stealth Passive vs. ASA HS-1A
I flew both professionally and for recreation. I got back into recreational flying after many years of not flying. I was not sure what headset I wanted, so I ordered both the ASA AirClassics HS-1A and a Faro Stealth Passive headset. The ASA headset was as uncomfortable as I remember from yeas ago. I have a big head (don’t all pilots!), and I remember that the small ASA ear cups would crush my ears over time and become very uncomfortable. Out of the box, the Faro headset fit well and did not crush my ears. The Faro headset also has much less clamping pressure on the head. I sent back my ASA headset to Sporty’s and bought two more Faro headsets (I own three Faro total now). For a primary headset, if you don’t want to buy a noise cancelling, go for the Faro Stealth Passive headset. Saving $90 by buying the ASA headset is not worth it for your primary headset. If you rarely carry passengers, you might be able to justify saving a few bucks on a backup headset by getting the ASA headset. If you have a small or average size head, the ASA headset may work okay for you. I have not regretted spending the extra money on Faro Passive headsets for me and my passengers. For reference, my current flying has me wearing the headset for about 1.5 hours for local flights. I have not worn the Faro on a long cross-country flight but think that it would be much more comfortable than the ASA headset. Good luck and happy flying!

Excellent Value for the Price
I recently purchased this as a backup pair, mainly to use with passengers. I've had the chance to try it out recently on several flights, and the product is a great value in PNR for the price. The headset is comfortable, and the audio quality is also very good. Not quite as good as the ANR in my Zulu 3 headset, but for ANR it's very good. Considering purchasing a second pair for a second passenger.

Nope! Keep looking. Faro doesn't stand behind their product.
I purchased this headset to serve as a backup passenger unit. Only needed something cheap and simple for the few times a year I fly with three or four passengers. I purchased in September of 2017 and only used them approximately five times before the ear seal ripped in June of 2018.
I contacted Faro support, described the issue, provided proof of purchase and photos of the problem. Their response... "Gel ear seals are considered normal tear and wear and not covered under warranty. Please purchase a replacement..."
I proceeded to explain these have only been used five times and are less than one year old. Again their answer... "As mentioned previously, ear seals are consumables...."
They kept directing me to their website where I can spend $30 plus shipping on a new set of ear seals. Sorry, not going to do that. In the trash can they go!
I had a very poor experience with this product and an even worse experience with their customer service.
I will not buy Faro again, not because the product was the issue, but because the company wouldn't stand behind their product.

Fun F on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this headset has the standard GA Plugs.
Are these available with the helicopter plug (mic and phone in single plug)? I can't find it specifying what plug it has. It would be great to not have to get the 2 to one adapter.
