|This headset is the one of the results of 25 years of experience manufacturing aviation headsets. In 25 years one talks to a great number of pilots from all walks of life and from many segments of the aviation community. This headset we believe to be perfect for the entry level pilot, backseats, or a pilot on a budget. We invite you to compare the features of our entry level headset with our competition’s upper range headsets. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. Fitted with our electret noise canceling microphone and windscreen, your voice will be heard loud and clear by ATC. The headset can be used in monaural or stereo modes. The PA-1161 comes with a NRR rating of 24 dB which is more than adequate to protect your hearing in normal aviation environments.
