(why do I even respond)

They are likely company-provided headsets...

Your missing the point. RJs are loud in the cockpit, requireing David Clark type headsets, irregardless of being company provided or not. I've never ridden in a mainline cockpit which any of the pilots ever wore David Clarks.

the original 170's that US Air got had sennheiser noise cxing headsets in them. when the aircraft were sold to republic the headsets went with the aircraft but then started to disappear. Republic replaced the missing sennheiser with the DC's you see in the pics.

The US Air 190's have the sennheiser headsets and do not disappear.

When I was at Republic from time to time my FO would pull out his/her own 800 dollar sennheiser. Funny thing it always seemed to be an FO that was hired before or during the transfer of US Air 170's to Republic. Never once do I recall a 2007 or 2008 DOH hire FO pulling out his/her own sennheiser.

Prior to owning any 170's, RAH provided DC headsets for use in the 145. The 145 is a louder cockpit, and the DC was the best overall choice for blocking out the wind noise. The 25 MidAtlantic 170's came with Seinheiser ANR headsets. These were nice and enjoyed by the pilots, but the company had to maintain the headsets. We all understand economies of scale, and it made the most sense for the company to replace those ANR's with the DC headsets that they had parts for, and that could be swapped out easily from a common parts bin. Pilots were told that the Seinhenisers would be removed and thrown out, as the company did not want to take the time to refurbish and sell the used headsets, so some pilots took them. And it was not just FO's, but also quite a few J4J captains as well. Half of the headsets ended up in pilot chart cases, the other half ended up on E-bay, being sold by the mechanics who "threw out" the headset.

I thought this thread was going route of the pay issue or something like that. Never thought it would run in this direction. So the amount of noise in the cockpit dictates if a plane is a regional or not? Wow!

I like the poster who asked about a C-17 or a C-5 pilot. How about those B-2 pilots that wear a helmet and travel halfway around the world and back. I guess wearing a helmet makes a pilot a local pilot?

The 170/190 series is a neat looking plane. Sleek and doesn't look like a lawndart. It looks like a mini-737.

As far as bulky headsets go, I like the Bose X. Very comfortable and really works well. I wish I had them back flying the C-12 for eight hours in a day a few years ago. I wore DC then and those were heavy and just not as good.

The only good thing about having Browtothebone around this board is that he actually makes the General look good.

Don't USAF C-17, C-5, etc pilots wear David Clarks?
E-3 crews wear bose noise cancelling. Noise level of the plane is personal prefference. The CRJ is lounder than I like along with the RJ85, MD 80 and so on..

Didn't know that, wow!! And those guys stay airborne for way to long. At least they can get up and walk to the back and ditch those headsets. Whatever it takes to make my life in the office sweet then I'll make it happen. :)

Actually, after flying both B747 and CRJ, I find the CRJ much quieter.
