The mic arm connection at the ear phone are not very tight so the mic arm continually falls down so the mic will not stay up at your mouth when you need to speak into it. I have this same problem on both sets I just bought.

Decent value. if you are not wearing a headset 8 hours a day you should look at this headset. As a general aviation pilot with 4 hour IFR missions couple of times a month I found this as a good deal especially with a $250 rebate from aircraft spruce on a old DC headset trade in.

Very good headset. Sound is very clear and the ANR makes all the difference from a regular headset. Great service from Aircraft Spruce Canada. Shipping was very fast.

I gave it a 5 because of the value compared to more expensive sets out there. They are just a little bulky looking (only reason I almost rated them a 4) but neither the wife or I notice it wearing them and we wear them all day sometimes! IMO theyre superior to the David Clarks that are a few hundred dollars more. Ear cups very comfortable and soft. Isnt painful putting them on when its 30 degrees:=)) Battery life seems to better than advertised!

I have used the Sierra for a couple years now and like it very much. It is light and very comfortable. Bluetooth works great.
