What pictures?

You can't go wrong with it. At the price, there is nothing better on
the market.

Yes. I love it! No pictures, though. It looks pretty much the way it
looks...

We took it up together with a Bose. Main impressions of the three
pilots present:

- Bose has a tad less clamping pressure, but pretty much negligible
- ANR spectrum is a little different, but the amount of noise reduction
is practically the same
- Lightspeed has a lot of features (Bluetooth, music input, cell phone
input, sound processing), the Bose doesn't have (m)any
- Music sounds better in the Lightspeed due to enhancement features
(bass, treble, FRC)
- LS has a more "modern" feel to it, but that's obviously very
subjective
- LS has the cables from one side to the other hidden in the structure,
very neat
- the price is different (duh!)

best headset that I have owned - use to use a DC 10 13.4 in a cessna 182 for skydiving - after a day in the DC you head would fall off..

Now in the zulu can fly for 10 hours and feel fresh at the end of the day..

plus i use the zulu in Navajo as well and its great..

my 2 cents

Zulu is by far the best headset on the market. Noise attenuation is better than the Bose and you can't beat the fact that the cell phone and music interface is built in. The cell phone is even BlueTooth. To get that in the Bose, you would be looking at almost $300 for an adapter.

All that and at $150 cheaper. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with the Zulu.

I have the Lightspeed Sierra (a step down from Zulu). I love it. I will admit, the new Bose are much more comfortable on long flights. But the ANR on my Sierra is great, and I have never had any problems with it. I don't see it uncomfortable at all. I usually don't even notice it until about 2 hours in or on a REALLY hot day, but that is with any headset. I think its worth saving the 300 or so dollars over the Bose.
