They are relatively expensive, but if you consider that they would last an average GA pilot years and years, then they become very reasonably priced.NYCPilot said:I've done a search of these boards and it seems the consensus if money permits are the Bose. I'm trying to figure out a way to get a pair. Does anyonethink a used pair from Ebay is worth purchasing. I hate used stuff, especially electronics as you never know why they're selling it. Maybe its a lemon. Anyway, I'd rather go new. Who wants to wear used headsets anyway.
Just gotta figure out how to afford them.
It's not just you. An ANR headset that's dead is louder than a non-ANR headset. It has something to do with the way that the ANR headset is seperated into two acoustic spaces. The bose is even worse in this regard, without the ANR you might as well just use the speaker and hand mic.Flylo said:The only downside I can see (hear) to the ANR's is that if you turn it off (or the battery goes dead) it gets awfully loud real quick; maybe even worse than a non-ANR. Don't know if this is typical of all ANR's or just the 2 models of Lightspeed's I'm familiar with. It could also be the shock of going from tomb-like quiet to "noise overload" that makes it seem worse than it really is.
