Even if you spent the $1.50 per week on new tips, that's only $78/year. Lightspeed Zulu's are $900, Halo's are $359. That's a difference of $541, or 6.9 years of weekly tip replacements. And that's not considering the AA batteries that would need to be replaced in the Zulus.

I have used Lightspeed ( Many Hrs) Bose X, Telex ANR, David Clark ANR prior to trying the Halo's and Clarity aloft at OSH.

I liked the feel of the Halo's along with my wifes choice. We both love them.

Excellent customer service.

Excellent noise reduction

Excellent comfort

Excellent value

There is one volume control for both sides -- so you can't adjust each side individually. But yes, there's a volume control on the QT Halos.

I have used mine for over five years and love them. I have had to use Customer Service, and it was quick and free! They donated a two sets for Eagle's Nest One, and a number of people have tried them in the RV-12. No complaints so far. I think you would be hard pressed to find a better all-around headset.

I don't understand your statement...you say there is control for "both" sides, then turn around and say you "can't" adjust each side individually.
Which is it?

Hey Bob...I need to fly down from II87 and meet up with you again. I talked with Phil (inventor of Halo) for maybe 15 minutes just now. Sounds like the sort I'd like to deal with. I didn't know he was an MD. So he really knows his stuff with his invention. Hope to see you sometime soon. DM

Didn't mean to be unclear. There is ONE volume control. It controls BOTH sides. That's why you can't adjust the two sides independently, there is only ONE volume control that adjusts the volume for BOTH sides.

That's not the same as one volume control for each side, which would be two volume controls total. There's only one.

Does that help?

Default CA is the choice

Have had Halos. Still own Clarity Alofts. The CA's are far superior in every way. Having said that, I fly the majority of the time with my ZULU's.
