I think this is going to be a very fine product for those that like flying with in the ear headsets. It is definitely superior to the 2 halo headsets I have and I have loved those. So you to ladies keep rockin those headsets.
I have had the Halo for a few months, what is the new brand to which you refer?

It is an upstart company. Keep in mind that it is only my opinion. I have flown with Bose, light speed and Halo's. For the kind of flying I do I prefer the in the ear the best. I find them much more practical for formation, acro, and X-C. My biggest complaints I mentioned, again for me, was the mic noise and boom constantly moving with as little as 1.5 G's with my Halos. Now let's be very honest, I do love my Halos, flown with them for 8 years and any issue I had it was fixed no big deal. I just like these better! I will respond to everyone that emailed me with the contact info that I have and let you go from there as they are just getting started. Thanks for all the inquiries I did not mean to take away from the original post. I just thought mentioning the headset was note worthy as I think it is a very good product, especially if you do the kind of flying I do.

In addition to Tanya's xxxHaloxxx headset, I really liked seeing her Pilots N Paws hat. Thanks for sharing the photos and story. Interesting reading on a cold, rainy day in Alabama.

P.S. Horton Heard a Who and pointed out they are not Halos. Now I know...

Default This isn't a headset thread, but...

In those photos, Tanya is in fact sporting the best headset known to humans. I've flown primarily with QT Halos for the last decade, but have two Bose A20s for the groms and a Lightspeed Zulu 2. The mystery headsets in the trip report are better than all of those. I'm not giving my example of the CQ1 mystery headset up, but hope that someday the model will be more widely available. It's cool that Cookie managed to get her hands on a couple too!
