Start your career above the clouds with the S1 Passive, a premium passive headset. It features superb passive attenuation that proves itself in daily use with single-engine and multi-engine propeller planes and helicopters.
Sennheiser’s cooperation with BMW DesignworksUSA has not only given the headset its unique design, it has also set new standards in the areas of safety and comfort. With ear pads specially designed for spectacle wearers, a contact pressure that is individually adjustable and a two-piece headband, the headset is always comfortable to wear even on long flights.
The ergonomic S1 PASSIVE control unit has a 3.5 mm jack socket to allow you to connect MP3 players or mobile telephones. You can keep listening to your music and talking on the phone, even above the clouds. For your safety, the audio signal of the player or mobile telephone is muted as soon as the tower contacts you.

Although I have not tried many headsets, my view is that these do not have a comfortable level of passive reduction. Also I could not get the phone connection to work reliably. The $100 headset (s) that I was trying to replace had great passive reduction and the cell connection worked great. I was really disappointed because I loved the looks, price and comfort of the S-1's. Consequently I returned them for the Telex 25XT which are great on passive reduction, very comfortable, and about $50 less. Not as stylish but you can't have everything.
