The CRAZEDpilot CP-1ANR is the most aggressively priced ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLING HEADSET on the market today. Amazing performance comparable to Bose and Lightspeed, but for a literal fraction of the price!
To of the line in its price range. The unit works fine and in think the audio is better than DC. The battery lasted about 20 hours. The active noise reduction does work. The only complaint is the mono/stereo switch isnt marked. I find myself fiddling with it during preflight sometimes because it got flipped inadvertently.
As others have said, good value for the money. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall construction including earpieces and headband/cushion. Automatic ANR function works great through my intercom. Nice mike and boom. Decent noise reduction I would prefer a slightly tighter fit and adjustment of ear cups a bit shorter (slide up closer to the top of the headband) however, these are minor compromises and/or may be remedied if I play with the fit more.
Great set! I fly a , Titan tornado and have no problems, very clear communication and good noise reduction!
I use this set in my Titan Toronto and the noise level is greatly reduced. Have no trouble with coms. Very clear!
Very comfortable, works great. Turned on with the intercom, off with the intercom, and is very clear. I might actually get one for each seat! LOVE IT!
Excellent headset for the money. Only used it a couple of times so far but audio performance is good. Fit is good too but it is a little heavier than I like. No problem for a one hour flight but might get old after 4 hours or more. Good buy!
OK is this at the same level as say a top of the line Bose or Lightspeed, well no, but at 1/4 to 1/5 I would not expect it to be. I normally use a Lightspeed and was shopping for some guest headsets. Decent price and reviews so I took the plunge. These are a very good value for my money. The headset itself is of solid construction with a sturdy mic boom and comfortable ear cups. The connector plugs and cable appear to be of good quality. The plastic on the electronics box is a little cheesy but again, this is an entry level or guest headset not really an issue. There were no instructions on how to use the patch cable so I could plug my phone in for music during cross countries but a little fiddling and I figured it out. The volume knobs on each ear cup work smoothly, no crackling and offer good volume control through the entire range of rotation. The plus/minus symbols for battery insertion are a little tough to see so I marked that on the outside of the control box. The auto on/off feature is really nice as it eliminates instructing the passengers to find and manipulate the control box. Audio quality is good to very good. Sound attenuation decent. You do not get the sensation of having just been placed in a quiet room that you get with a high end unit but there is respectable sound deadening, certainly adequate for a pax who only flies occasionally. The only thing I dont have any input on is the lifetime of a battery. Something of a throw back, these units use a 9V battery. Overall, I am very pleased, a lot of performance for my dollar. A few things could be a little better, hence the 4 star but great value!
I have not used these for an extended period, but they seemed comfortable enough and the ANR was soothing. For the money, I would have expected much less that I got.
The headset itself is very comfortable and seems to be of descent quality based on the price. However, the automatic on/off switch will not activate unless you have a intercom box or a audio panel. I was going to use it in a skydiving 182 that just has one set of jacks since there is only one seat for the pilot. Because the jacks do not go through an intercom and are directly tied to the radio, the ANR auto switch will not activate. I emailed Crazedpilot and got a response that this was the case and there was no way to activate it otherwise. I did however try it in an airplane with an audio panel and it activated and the ANR did a nice job. Bottom line, not bad for the price, but if you dont have an audio panel or intercom box the ANR will not activate. Crazed pilot and Spruce need to highlight this fact in the description.
