Anyone else have this issue?

I keep the volume HI/LO set on LO because otherwise, the bells and chimes are blaring.

As a trade-off, when I talk on the radio and transmit, I can hardly hear my own voice at all. Over the intercom talking to the CA, I can usually hear my voice OK.

Is there a simple fix to this?

Wear the orange and yellow earplugs. They drown out the white noise and soften the cockpit tones. You will also be able to leave the headset on high as well as hear yourself talk to ATC and the guy in the left seat. I have tried it the other way and the earplugs definitely make it much better.

Good Luck

The simplest fix is to buy a headset that isn't a piece of crap.
How about not using a good headset in a piece of crap airplane.

*sigh*
I guess the other question is why is there such an obsession with side-tone (hearing your own voice)? On panels that had a control for it I used to turn it off, is there some reason you feel the need to hear yourself?

So you can lower your voice and sound like an 80 year old smoker.

The same reason there are monitors at rock concerts. If I cant hear my own voice I totally lose track of what I'm saying. Also when it comes to singing if I cant hear myself through the monitor I'll be out of key/tune.

MEOW!

No problem here I love mine. I keep com 1 around 45 past top dead center and INT about that as well. No issues what so ever.

The only problem I've had with the 850 is that I left it on an airplane, and the guy I saw get on the airplane then claimed not to have seen it.

He since got furloughed, so I guess that's justice.

How new is your headset? If you just bought it, maybe there is a defect in it? I have a pair and they work fine.

Plenty
Been flying an 850 for the last several years, no issues at all. Sounds like an issue with the unit, as some others have said.

Peace.

Was he wearing a Mesa uniform and have an I-pod in his hands?

No, this was actually one of our pilots. He's at another regional now, not Mesa oddly enough.

Concur, good riddance for sure. Especially considering the guy lied to my face about it.
