What's In A Headset?

Wed May 11, 2005 9:37 pm

When I first passed my PPL test, I decided to go out and get my own headset. I didn't really know what makes a good headset so I just decided to go for the cheapest one. I found one in Pooley's for just under £100, which seem to have worked fine over the past year.

How do I judge wants makes a quality headset?

I think one of the best qualities of the headset on a prop airplane is its ability to protect against the noise.Also a very important feature is some nylon headset starts hurting your ears after a while.

Try to find one with and highest quality padding for both the ears and head. Gel filled seems to be the most comfortable. Noise canceling headsets are a very good idea, but if you can not afford one look for the highest db rating. Then look for fit. They may look the same but once you have them on your head they might have a totally different feeling. Don't forget about adjustments and whether or not you can get everything placed right where you want it.

Try a pair of David Clarks on, you may see a diiference. Expensive, but well worth it IMHO.
I love the rumble of a 727 takeoff in the morning!
