I bought a set of the Mach 1's offered by Lightspeed. The "osh
special" was to have the audiologist fit the custom molds for nearly
I very much liked the set. However, I could not hear very well with
them. I think it was too much noise in the cockpit. I tried them in

service. They sent me a set of Twenty 3G's for the return of the Mach

ANR I can hear clearly. Also they are very comfortable. No fatigue
after a three hour flight. I have never had "no pain" after that long
with other sets.

highly recommend it.

What did I do on the flight??? The usual... XM music on, climb to
G's), watched the funny little cars heading up the highway to the
big city, performed a wake up call at 165mph down the runway for
the airpark, and parked her for the day. What a nice way to wake up!!
