Re: Quiet Technologies Halo Headset

Jon & Mike,
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
my plane and Paul Fishers. Also the custom molds hurt like hell.
Having said all that. Lightspeed was stellar in their customer
service. They sent me a set of Twenty 3G's for the return of the Mach
1. I really did want to make then work, but no dice for me. With the
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.

Jon, Whats this "audiologist fee" they talk about? Did you get them
custom fit? I'd be curious how they compare to an active noise
canceling headset! A friend at work built a set like this, I gota
how his turned out...
Thanks for the report.

Hi All,

I decided to splurge on myself for Halloween so ordered one of
the Quiet Technologies Halo headsets. [http://]

Recieved them yesterday afternoon so just had to go fly this
morning. WOW!! I am impressed. Compared to my ten year old,
cheapest that I could find at Oshkosh headset, the Halo is
magnificent - actually, there isn't even a comparison. The coolest
part was the complete lack of any weight or clamp on my head. I
highly recommend it.

What did I do on the flight??? The usual... XM music on, climb to
7000', some chandelles, some lazy eights, some high-G turns (1.104
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!!
