I tried to contact Lightspeed to see if any adjustments (none I could find), they didn't answer the phone twice and have not responded to my Email. The headset is very comfortable, not as quiet as the Bose A20 but good enough for a King Air, overkill for a biz jet. I returned it within the 30 days, bought the A20.September 4, 2019Durability1 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoDisappointedI cannot get them to work. I’d say it’s a problem w the plane but it’s new, and my older David Clarke’s work fine.August 30, 2019Purchased

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.August 18, 2019Purchased
4 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLightspeed SierraThese 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.July 26, 2019Purchased
5 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWonderful for the priceIt 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.June 5, 2019Purchased

7 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5I 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.April 14, 2019Purchased

8 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesBest Budget ANR HeadsetOverall, 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.March 27, 2019Purchased
