Headset Upgrade Components
The Ultimate In Flying Comfort™
A SoftTop® Headset Cushion
Eliminates top-of-head pressure. 100% plush sheepskin wool. Keeps head cool or warm. Moisture-proof, self-wicking action. Flexible leather backing. Customized mount of either rubber extrusion or nylon hook/loop wrap.
B SoftSeal® Ear Cushions
Conform to your head. 200-300% more volume for total comfort. Smooth, soft, washable synthetic leather cover over temperature and pressure sensitive visco-elastic foam core. Great with eyewear or earrings. Eliminate ear pressure. Attach with flange, adhesive ring or snap-on mount, depending on headset type.
C SoftSkin® Ear Seal Covers
Keep your ears even drier and cooler and add to product life by slipping SoftSkin® Ear Seal Covers over SoftSeal® Ear Cushions. Self-wicking reduces perspiration buildup. Especially helpful in hot, humid climates. They fit loose, not tight like a drum (this is important because tight cloth covers produce pressure on the ear, causing pain).
D HushKit® Passive Ear Cup Noise Attenuation Kit
Testing shows the HushKit® Passive Ear Cup Noise Attenuation Kit performs better than ANR headsets in the 700-7000Hz mid-range where hearing loss occurs (see Headset Test Data). Dramatically improves noise attenuation and intelligibility. Four die-cut visco-elastic foam layers fill all Ear Cup voids. Turn down your radio volume! It’s not that you can’t hear your radio (even though it’s on high volume) — it’s that you can’t understand what’s being said in the voice frequency range.
E MicMuff® Microphone Cover
The MicMuff® Microphone Cover lets a noise canceling mic do its job above 97dB. Eliminates ambient cockpit noise and noise from radios and intercom. The noisier the cockpit (warbirds, open cockpit, large engine aircraft), the more dramatic the improvement in noise reduction and clarity. See the MicMuff® Microphone FAQs for more information. The MicMuff® Microphone Cover must be used on all headsets installed in the communications system. Soft, washable leatherette cover over foam sleeve creates chamber around mic. Cockpit noise has limited access to mic cartridges, but voice enters easily through holes in leatherette cover. Elasticized tie ensures it won’t blow away.
