There are two major classes of aviation headsets.- First,
there are the "heavyweights" which clamp the
wearer's head very tightly ("like a vice," some
say), and which reduce the sound of the engine to nearly
inaudible levels, obliterating useful sounds, such as the
stall-warning horn. Then, there are the
"lightweights," which resemble the small
headphones used with personal stereos (i.e. Walkman*).
Lightweights are quite comfortable, but they reduce the
engine sound little, if at all. This limits their
usefulness in piston-engine aircraft.
The Model AIR-680 does not fit into either of the above
categories. It is lighter than most of the
"heavyweights," and it does not clamp the
wearer's head tightly like those headsets do.
Distinguishing it from lightweights, its large, padded,
over-the-ear muffs reduce the engine sound sufficiently
for clear communications, in typical piston-engine
airplanes. This "in-between" design philosophy
provides what may be the perfect compromise! Users report
that they are able to wear the AIR-680 headset for many
hours of flying, although they could tolerate typical
aviation headsets for only 20 to 30 minutes.
MODEL AIR-680 (SAME AS ABOVE)
SHOWN WITH OPTIONAL
The Model AIR-680 has a volume control on the left earcup
which controls the listening level in both ears,
simultaneously- a nearly indispensable feature for
intercom operation. The state-of-the-art flexible boom
holds its position after being bumped, due to its
built-in mechanical memory- a feature usually associated
with more costly headsets. The boom may be bent anywhere
along its length, in any direction, for a nearly infinite
number of adjustment possibilities. Its length is also
adjustable, via a sliding mechanism which allows it to
travel in and out of the earcup.
The electret microphone used in the AIR-680 has sound
quality and noise cancelling ability which rivals the
most costly headsets. We have been told that this same
microphone is used by a famous manufacturer, as part of
their $300 aviation headset. The earphones are
moving-coil, dynamic types- again, the kind used in
expensive headsets. At least one "industry
leader" aviation headset maker uses outdated WWII
technology "magnetic" earphones in a low-end
headset which is priced higher than the AIR-680.
Thus, it would seem that selecting a major brand-name is
not assurance of superior quality.
Many people ask how we can offer a sophisticated,
full-featured product at such a low price. The answer is
that our company sells the AIR-680 directly from the
factory warehouse to the end user. There are no dealers
and distributors, adding their extra layers of profit.
The result is a superb product at a lower price than many
people would believe possible.
But is the quality really as good as we say it is? Only
you can decide. So we give you the opportunity to try it
for 30 days, with the offer of a full refund of the
purchase price (less original shipping/handling charge),
if you should not be satisfied. Historically, the overwhelming
majority of buyers have elected to keep their
AIR-680's. Many have ordered additional units for
passengers, as well.
