Hi all

I am looking for advise on the selection of headset. I am currently PPLH mainly flying an R22 & R44 (fingers crossed on successful completion of a Type rating) , and studying towards my CPLH.

I have looked on eBay and found headsets around 100, however I expect these are not worth the postage? Skylite and Lightspeed brandnames?

If anyone has any suggestions of suitable products and places to purchase, all advise will be appreciated.

Many thanks
Steve

Think this has been covered before - might be worth a search?

General consensus is go and try some on at a pilot shop if possible - different people find different makes more comfortable than others.

I have always used David Clarks - only thing now is I would probably buy the noise reducing ones, which weren't available when I got mine.

Lightspeed make some good headsets, I have heard of the Zulu being good but never tried it personally. If money is no issue then the Bose A20 would be my recommendation!
