Sound Quality
The Airman 8 features a high-quality amplified electret microphone for clear voice transmission. Improved ANR and microphone noise cancellation ensures superior in-flight communication.

Active Noise Reduction
The Airman 8 headset features enhanced ANR (Active Noise Reduction) with even more noise reduction, helping to improve intelligibility and reduce fatigue. The position of the ANR switch has also moved to the forward-facing ear cup side, making it easier to reach the switch without having to remove the headset. A unique feature of the Airman 8 is that it is powered from its microphone system, eliminating the need for batteries or special connectors.

Durability
A strong stainless steel headband with metal pivots improves durability for long headset life. The new microphone boom design provides stronger rotation stops, utilizing the full diameter of the ear cup. Furthermore, a pre-coiled overhead cord has been added to extend the useful life of the headset. The main headset cord is also more robust and features an improved design of the band relief on the ear cup entrance.

Comfort and FitB The soft headband pad and lightweight design provides comfort, even on long flights. An added yoke provides enhanced comfort by allowing ear cup movement in all directions.

Furthermore the Airman 8 comes with replaceable ear cup covers and leatherette ear cushions.

The Airman 8 weighs a mere 4.2oz. without the cable.

Great Headset
great Headset, easy to use and very confortable. The ANR system works pretty well but obviously is not the right Headset for noisy cabins.
I use it in my King Air and I am very satisfied.

Microphone stopped working in short time.
This headset could be great with a bit more quality control and better components. Unfortunately, as with other reviews the mic started to break up after my second trip with it. I didn’t use the smashable fabric case it comes with and chose to keep it in a sturdy plastic box to keep it safe so it wasn’t a case of mistreatment. I fly a CRJ. The ANR worked nicely in that cockpit. It did have a slight hum but I didn’t find it distracting. I give one star for build quality and one for potential. I’ll be returning it to try something else.

Best ANR Headset under $500
Best ANR headset under $500. I fly in a none ICS cockpit in the B777 and these allow for high end transmit and receive while still allowing for communication between the crew.

I recommend this model.
I had this model last year. This one is working pretty good. I used to use Airman850 before. But I prefer this model. No battery required that’s the best thing. Very light weight. No complaint at all so far!!

Great... when it works
I've owned this headset for a year. It's just not reliable. I've sent it back for repair three times. The ANR stopped working correctly twice, and the mic cable straight gave out in the middle of a trip the other time.

When it works, it works great. It's lightweight, the ANR works well, and it doesn't require batteries. It packs away easily in my flight bag. I just can't recommend something that I can't rely upon working when needed.

What is 15 noise reduction rating. Is it good enough for very noisy aircraft?
Paul B on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 15 is the number of decibels that the sound level is reduced. This headset is usually worn in a jet cockpit and not a piston aircraft.
