I Bought this model, the instructor told me about dont wast in cheap and buy RECOGNIZED BRANDS, i use it for 6 flights and buy a 800 usd model with active noise cancellation, The active noise cancellation cut the background type sounds, but the H-40A is quieter than the one with noise cancellation, i will transfer the noise cancellation system from the expensive unit, to the H-40, this unit is a great headset, you can buy a noise cancellation kit and install on them and will have a top quality headset below 350.

Based on just one flight, they seem pretty good, the sound is a good as my DC ones. They are not as well put togther as the DC ones, not a big issue. For the price though and as spares for my airplane they are perfect. My DC ones have had the plastic parts of the wiring cords turn to mush and crumble away, these cost less that the replacement cords and no hassle finding someone to solder them in.

When i start to look for a headset, and compare 1000 usd for the most advanced 400 for the workhorses and 100 for the entry level, has noise cancellation and may be are clone from a more expensive brand,i dont care about brand if the materials and quality are good, if you sell an bad quality entry level product you will loose a client, aircrafspruce will not take that kind of risk as the logo is on it.
