As a freshly minted A&P starting a new endeavour rewiring helicopters during major modifications, I needed a personal headset that was good quality and affordable on my limited budget. I chose this headset for both reasons and never regretted the decision. I purchased the headset in 1996 and have taken good care of it over the years. Ive had no issues with the headset at all other than refreshing it with a new Oregon Aero Comfort Kit just due to age of the ear cushions and foam breaking down. For the price and quality of the headset, it is well worth it. David Clark quality at Wal-Mart prices.
Purchased this headset over tTELEX STRATUS 30XTmy warbird GIB. Ugly colour but very good performance. The ear and mic cushions are still in good shape and have outlasted my own headset at over double the cost. I would definitely purchase again.
