I am starting my flight training and I would like some feedback from
other pilots on aviation headsets. Like most student pilots, I am on a
budget but I do want a good, sturdy headset that will last me at least 5
years. Also, I would like an ANR headset. I have heard very good things
about the Bose Aviation Headset X and the LSP Zulu. I know these are top
of the line and quite expensive but I have no problem spending the money
if I know these headsets will last. Do any of you guys have either one
of these headsets? If so, where is the best place to order one? Thanks
for the feedback!!

The most accepted headset among airline crews is the David Clark range:
$250 - $800
The cheapest headset range is from Gulf Coast Avionics under $100 on up.

I have to agree with Brian on the David Clark, but if you are thinking of getting a higher end headset, the Bose A20 is the best IMO.

I found it on Pilotshop.com for $1,095.00 and it is tax free and they will send it to me with free overnight shipping. I am inclined to go with that after I do some more research. They even offer it with out bluetooth. I had my decision made about the Zulu but then Bose came out with the A20 so now I am back to square one. Oh well. Thanks for all the feed back! I appreciate it!


You really can't make a bad decision with any of the high end headsets on the market. Both the LightSPEED Zulu and the Bose A20 are exceptional headsets. We wrote an article on the different models on the market a few months back that you might want to review: http://www.pilotmall.com/headsets_buyers_guide

*the Bose A20 is not listed because it hadn't yet been introduced into the market.

Let me know if you have any questions.
