Student pilot choosing a headset, help!

Asked by: 4130 views , , ,
Aviation Headsets

I'm buying a headset soon and I've pretty much narrowed it down to two headsets, Beyerdynamic HS 200 or the Marv Golden ANR headset. http://www.marvgolden.com/mg-anr-headset.html, http://www.ebay.com/itm/beyerdynamic-HS-200-Trend-Passive-Aviation-Headset-/120998137800?pt=Motors_Aviation_Parts_Gear&hash=item1c2c0d0fc8&vxp=mtr. I've been able to find reviews on both headsets (although it's been slim pickings) but I don't know if the MGs are going to be worth a darn and just fall apart within a year, while the beyerdynamics have more of a reputation it's still not much more (at least not easily visible on the internet). On the other hand the MG is probably the best deal on an ANR set out there right now! Any input as to the quality of these headsets would be greatly appreciated!

Also, if I could find a gently used Flightcom for a good deal would that be worth getting? I'm open to any ideas, thank you!

    Hi Brian,

    I personally don’t have experience with either of those brands unfortunately. Just based on the links you provided, I would say the Beyerdynamic looks more comfortable and that the passive reduction would be sufficient for flight training.

    If you have already purchased either pair, please report back and let us know which one you ended up going with.
