I know I'm asking a question that many have asked before me, but I just can get to a decision.
I'm a flight instructor, and my old headset has died. Right now I'm using the headsets that we lend to customers and students (pooleys, asa, flightcom) but they are just destroying my ears when I'm wearing them 5 hours every day (not just because of bad noise cancelation, but also bad comfort).
I've been looking to buy a new headset, but I just cant decide. I dont have a big budget at the moment, but I dont have to time to save for a zulu or something.
I've looked at Passive and ANR headsets, and I think I'm ok with just a passive one (mainly because of the price range). Can you guys tell me what would be your top 3 choices of good passive headsets?
My budget is about $450. I'm also fine with getting an ANR headset, but it still needs good passive cancelation in case I forget to charge the batteries :$. I fly mainly Pa38 and Pa28.
I hope you guys can help me decide. I only know so much about this stuff, and I'm afraid of picking a brand unknown to me, which might put me on the wrong track.
