I’m a private pilot who flies mostly for fun (and on a budget) so I couldn’t justify shelling out hundreds for a headset when most of my flights are less than 1.5 hours.

This headset gets the job done and has so far worked quite well. My only complaint (and why I didn’t give five stars) is that after an hour or two it starts to get quite uncomfortable. I purchased cloth covers for the ear cushions (from sportys) and saw a decent improvement.

Would definitely recommend for the student or more casual pilot. If you’re planning to fly very often and for longer durations it’s probably not appropriate.

I wanted an extra headset for passengers and I'd owned one of these about 20 years ago. It's also a practical, good headset for someone like me who doesn't spend endless hours in an airplane. I just need something to hear and be heard and this one does that just fine.

Best Headset for the Money
I have had this headset since 2001 and only now is it starting to show its age...the foam covering the mic is beginning to shred which I'm guessing I can replace pretty cheaply. Communications have always been very clear, I can hear ATC and visa-versa. I have nothing to compare with so I don't know if a D.C. is that much better but all I can say is I think you really get your money's worth with the S-20.

Very nice headset
My first headset as a new student pilot. Works great and highly recommend. Quality construction. Take the time to adjust and get it right before flight!

I wish the ear cups didn’t swivel, otherwise it works well for the price, I purchased it simply as a passenger headset.

Great starter set but won't last forever.
I bought this set early in training to get started, it was fantastic in a Piper, not the loudest aircraft, for about two years. Ive noticed recently that at full power in the warrior and really anything above 1800 rpm in a skyhawk will basically nullify the intercom function. I cant hear myself talk and barely the other person next to me. For the price it was a great first headset, I got about 60 hours out of it and it was comfortable for about a 3.5 hours trip. But after you get your private, especially if you want to advance into instruments or fly around ATC, definitely invest in a DC or Bose.

Pros: Good headset for the price, easy to adjust to your preferences, volume control a plus Cons: Ear pieces get uncomfortable after long periods of wear. You would want about getting different ear pieces and that would make this product perfect.
