Great Investment

This headset is very comfortable to wear over long period of time, even when consciously thinking about wearing it, you'll struggle to feel it on your head. The gel ear seals have large cushions as well as the headband cushion and there's not much pressure from the headband - however it will still stay in place so no need to worry about it slipping off. The gel ear seals may get a little sweaty if it's a warm day but there is the option of the cotton covers (not included). The mic-boom is fully articulated and can be positioned however you wish to mould it. The headband is adjustable to a wide range of sizes, though not recommended for young children (I'd say 16+). This headset does have great quality in the speakers and in the microphone, and the noise attenuation is quite good - though sunglasses may break the seal and let a little more noise in. The included bag is good quality, a good carry handle and a pocket for a checklist or some small paperwork like ID etc, but not big enough for a logbook or kneeboard or anything like that. Overall, this product is a step up from the entry level products offered by other vendors, or the cheap headsets that schools may offer for use. If you are studying your PPL this headset is recommended as an investment that will keep you going well after you have attained your licence and will accompany you for 00's of hours after. Once you have "outgrown" this headset and go for an ANR one then this would be ideal for your passengers.

The best

I've flown about 8.5 thousand hours in light aircraft and spent about 5000 of those trying numerous headsets (active and passive) in search of the perfect one. I reached two conclusions; 1. There is no perfect headset, and 2. The 13.4s are the best overall. They are heavier than some, clamp the head a bit, the mike doesn't adjust as precisely as I'd like, but they're durable, comfortable (despite the above comments) transmit and receive the clearest sound and spares are available worldwide. A bit less obvious is that they seem quieter than many rivals (despite a marginally lower quoted noise attenuation), this seems to be because the microphone picks up less background noise, the difference when someone in a different headset plugs in is obvious. My personal advice having flown with numerous types is that unless you're looking for a short-term, budget purchase, these are the best all-rounders.
