If all parties, airline makers, civil aviation authorities and all gave it the OKAY, would you be happy wearing the "apple" type headphones in your ears with a little stick mic like the singers use?
|Quoting KELPkid (Reply 2):|
To be a "legal" headset, though (one used by the flight crew, not passengers), you have to conform to an FAA TSO (not sure the number on that one),

The problem with anything that goes inside the ear or the ear canal itself, is the increased risk of an ear infection. Especially given the probability that they would be removed and reinserted frequently.
I was looking at some of the headsets, such as the "Plantronics MS30 StarSet Aviation Headset" and they look rather uncomfortable compared to a conventional headset with padded ear-cups. What's the main advantage of using those over a conventional headset like the one shown below?

Wouldn't the Cup types be more effective in locating desired sound to the ears only.
