more of the available options offer stereo sound and ANR in
packages as low as $350.
The majority of the headsets available fall into this price
range, most of them with ANR and stereo, and some with
Bluetooth as an option.
Above $500
In this spectrum, more and more of the features become
standard equipment, with the full spectrum often available:
ANR, stereo, Bluetooth and wireless connectivity. Some of
the highest-priced models don't offer all three, while several
between $800 and $1,000 include all these options. This is
also the price range where you'll most often find variations
on the in-the-ear models, which, absent ANR, still run into
the higher prices.
Priority setting: protection
and comfort as equal partners
No one can direct a pilot into a set of headphones that

aren't comfortable. When the user may need them for
hours at a stretch, it would be easy to pontificate on how
comfort should top the list. After all, if it's not comfortable,
a pilot may avoid using it.
And any level of sound attenuation beats no
attenuation at all.
But the happiest pilots of my acquaintance found their
headphones in balance: Necessary sound attenuation
with necessary comfort - comfortable enough to wear for
all full-range flights.
While sound chambers and aircraft cockpits may help
a buyer decide whether the attenuation and sound quality
meet the buyer's needs and expectations, there's no
simulator for checking fit and comfort. Well, none outside
the prospective buyer's head.
A test flight - preferably in the prospects regular
aircraft - is the best place to decide whether a model of
aviation headsets offer the fit and comfort that prospect
desires.
Finding the perfect match may take a few demos, but
to the pilot, they're all worth the time since he or she will
live with that choice for years to come. q
