2 weeks agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesA problem I had before using this headset was that I could not understand when a controller gave me instructions. This headset allowed me to have two-way communications by being able to clearly hear ATC and talk back. I’m a student pilot now and I would be flying for a while.
A good headset that improves your comfort and communication is another reason I’ll stay flying for a long time.July 12, 2020Purchased

2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery good headset. Especially for the price. I've had it for several months now and it's very comfortable for long cross country's and the noise canceling works very well. Definitely recommend it.May 24, 2020Durability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood for its priceThough you cannot beat the Bose A20 this one works well for a lot cheaper. I had some issues after a few months of very light use. Sportys was very fast and professional about getting it fixed up. It is working wonderfully now!April 30, 2020Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat headset. Comfortable and good ANR.Great headset. I always flew with a Halo before, but in my RV-3 I was getting a deep, drumming sound that I couldn't get rid of. It's even worse with the Sierra's w/o the ANR turned on, but it disappears when they are on. I've only flown for 2-3 hours with them so far, and have found them to be very comfortable. The bluetooth for my phone is also a nice feature. I'm very pleased that I didn't have to spend the extra money for the Zulu's or a Bose.April 13, 2020Purchased

3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesA phenomenal buy for student or budget-minded pilotI bought this headset before I started my training in July 2019 because I had the chance to fly with a pair owned by a friend and the noise canceling is awesome. The headset also has Bluetooth connectivity to allow one to listen to music while flying and it cuts out when you or another pilot/air traffic controller makes a transmission, allowing you to focus on the transmission. I've been using this headset since and it still works like a charm in the light sport aircraft I fly since noise dampening is minimal in those planes.April 8, 2020Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesVery good headsetComfi, ANR works well, and more features than the A20 (being able to record audio for post-analysis and/or add more value to a separate flight video recording), all for substantially less than the price of an A20.
The bag is a bit floppy, but hey it was included so no complaints.March 24, 2020Purchased
