Video: what’s the best ANR headset?

Buying an aviation headset is a surprisingly personal decision. There is no “right answer” for every pilot—it depends on the type of flying you do, what airplane you fly most often and your personal preferences. But three headsets consistently come out on top among pilots: the Bose A20, Lightspeed Zulu 3, and David Clark ONE-X. All three of these headsets feature active noise reduction (ANR), comfortable ear seals, Bluetooth audio integration, and excellent product support. To help you choose the right one for you, Sporty’s Doug Ranly compares the “big three” in this Product PIREP video. He explains the subtle differences and shares his personal preference.
