Aviation Headsets

Im looking into buying a new headset and have come across theses two, PA 1171T and 1181T, which seem very good on the websites, but comapared to other headsets they are very cheap.. too cheap to be any good. Is any of the Pilot USA headsets worth buying or will i just be dissapointed? I currently use Peltor 8006

    If you’re using a Peltor now you may be disappointed by a Pilot. I know I would.

    But the best advice on headsets I know is to find a pilot shop where you can try on several so you can see both fit (for you) and finish (for it). Even a high quality headset may not feel comfortable to a particular person.
