SKYCOM ANR HEADSET
I bought it to try out ANR since my Dave Clark PNR had intermittent failures at inopportune times like in the middle of the Charlotte Class B. I fly both open cockpit and closed cockpit single engine and I figured if it didn't work I'd give it to one of my students as a gift. So far, I've only had a chance to use it in the closed cockpit environment, but I like it. No frills, but easy to use. Put a 9 V battery in it and set it on auto, plug it into the panel, and turn on the aircraft avionics power and presto, the noise goes away. Contrary to the last review...the light does come on and its working is easily known because the world is now much quieter. The auto control is on an extra cord that I just put into a side pocket for the checklist or control lock near the panel and cease to worry about it. I find it to be of acceptable comfort, even wearing my glasses on long trips. It is at least as comfortable as the previously mentioned DC. Occasionally I get a squeal in one ear for some reason, but not since I adjusted the controls on each ear muff to mid range on the individual dials. I'll fly it in an open cockpit on some warm day...I did buy an added $12 muff for the mike in the event I have problems to see how that works. But, ... bottom line...I am pleased with this selection and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Easy to use, cheap, and effective...an unusual combination in the aviation world. I seriously considered a $700 headset...bought this...have used it for a few flights now...and feel good about my frugal decision. Gives me money to buy something I really need!
I bought two of these. One works fine, the other will have to be returned. It only receives in one ear cup. Both sides have noise reduction, but only one ear cup receives intercom and radio. I have cross checked against the other headset. It is a manufacturer defect, not a wiring issue. ANR is OK. Nothing compared to a high quality Bose, but better than nothing.
Noise reduction effective. Comfort good. However, high pitch noise from one side when descending is distracting. Stops when levelled off.
no that great can hear static
