Faro Headsets a good buy?

Asked by: 2690 views ,
Aviation Headsets

I've been looking for an ANR headset that won't bankrupt me, mainly focusing on eBay.  I just discovered the Faro brand through an ad in AOPA Pilot magazine, and then looked at Faro's web site.  At the prices shown, this seems too good to be true, so...  Does anyone have any experience with Faro ANR?  What can you tell me about them?

    I actually had one of those but I changed to Bose, which are wonderful!.

    Pros.
    Good noise reduction.
    Nice comfort.
    Beautiful gel ear-seals.
    Price.

    Cons.
    Mike is too short.
    Lasted around 18 months of use. (That’s why I changed)
    Mp3 plug is on the right ear, so you may have some problems with the cable.

    I really like that, if I have to buy a cheap headset. I’ll go for Faro.

    Hope this will help you.
