The lightweight (4.3 oz.) 5 x 5 Pro III headset combines a miniature, high performance amplified electret mic with a single receiver. The mic produces maximum “talk power” with unparalleled noise cancellation. Features a single magnetic, soft ear tip receiver. Ear piece and boom mic are fully adjustable for use on left or right side. Pivoting boom permits precise mic positioning at the corner of the mouth. Can be worn without the headband; attach to eyeglass bows, either wire or plastic. Connector type is dual/twin plug. Includes headset pouch and a three-year warranty.

Speech Intelligibility

The 5x5 Pro III features an eartip-style receiver, which provides better speech intelligibility than an earmuff-style headset in quiet to moderately noisy environments.

Comfort

The adjustable springs allow users to alter lateral pressure on the head and optimize load distribution and wearer comfort.

Push-to-Talk

Push-to-Talk switch is available to order for ease of use.

FAA TSO Approval

The 5x5 Pro III is approved for aviation use under Federal Aviation Agency TSO C57 and C58A.

This is a professional jet pilot headset
I'm a B757/B767 airline Captain and have also flown B737 and A320. This is the most comfortable headset setup you can get, but you have to make the effort to get the full proper setup.

You start with this headset. Next, you go to the audiologist and get custom earmolds made...get one for each ear so you can use it in both seats in case you are a line check pilot. I prefer them WITHOUT the pressure equaliztion hole (which is un-necessary and just adds noise). Order TWO noise reducing filters for the audio tube coming off this headset.
Also tell the audiologist you want a a pair of Etymotic brand musicians earplugs with 15 and 25 dB filters. You wear that in your non-headset ear. I use the 25 dB when flying and the 15dB when at a loud concert. I also recommend you buy "Comply wraps" from JHAudio which are little thin memory foam strips...you wrap those around the earmold part of the headset that goes into your ear canal.

You throw the headband in the trash along with the little earplug thing it comes with.

You now have an awesome headset that is super light, super comfortable, doesn't mess up your hair or put pressure on your bald head...it's not hot...it doesn't smash your ears against your head...it is the best setup I've tried - and I've tried them all - from over ear to on ear to lightweight Telex Airman 750, 850, Sennheiser ANR, Bose, David Clark, etc. This is the very best setup for a jet pilot. I only give 4 stars because it is a bit fragile and you need to do the mods (audiologist visit, custom earmolds, memory foam comply wraps, musicians earplug) to make it perfect vs. what comes in the box.

An excellent light weight headset, get an ear mold from your local hearing aid shop. Use an EAR plug in the offside ear. If you fly L&R seat get two ear molds. It will pack with the ear mold ina plastic sandwick lunch box, 6x6x1"
Most convenient headset for the pilot who flies several different airplanes, from trainers to jets. MUST use a foam EAR plug in other ear. Will work open cockpit but a noise cancelling muff is better for that use or if you can leave your headset in one airplane.

Pros: Great sound, with plug in ear, transmissions are not blocked by outside noises. Cons: Head band is tight Used this same headset for 13 yrs before mic plug gave out, new one has beefier cords. Using my old headband as it is already broke in.

Pros: This has been the headset that I have used for the past 15 years in the airline business. My previous headset would have lasted longer if I had not accidently damaged it. Super product. Cons: This is not one of those heavy David Clark type headsets that can be tossed around without thought. This is very lightweight and yes, fragile. I use this product with a custom molded earpiece. It has been adequate for use in the different aircraft I have flown in my career (with different noise levels).
