Pilot Stories

  
 
The Zulu is the company's best headset ever...Lightspeed has knocked the competition out of the park.
 
   — Ian J. Twombly, AOPA Pilot Associate Editor
 
Zulu is amazing. I haven't found anything that's as quiet or nearly as comfortable. The audio quality is better than anything I've ever heard through any headset.
 
   — Kevin Eldredge, Race pilot
 
The Zulu is the most comfortable, quiet, durable headset I have ever worn. The Zulu even outdoes the Bose in noise cancellation as well as comfort. One of the best characteristics, at least for a helicopter pilot, is that it is durable. With the Bose headsets we were using, you would look at it wrong and it would stop working, while the Zulu will withstand normal wear and tear that you experience as an operator. Another great feature for us is the Bluetooth phone capability. This feature has allowed us to keep our dispatch informed of where we are and where we are going, without risking the safety of the flight. And for those long solo x-countries, the adapter for the iPod and Front Row Center make the flight much more enjoyable. I will never go back to the Bose headset.
 
   — Tyler Sturdevant, Director of Operations, Precision Helicopters
 
I recently had the opportunity to fly an 11 hour cross country adventure from Burlington, Kansas to Galveston, Texas with my son. He is a Lightspeed owner and convinced me to borrow a Zulu from a friend for the trip. I have been an owner of a competing brand for years and was reluctant at first. He told me I would not be disappointed. After using a Zulu for 11 hours over several days, I am a convert. The comfort alone of the Zulu made all the difference and the noise reduction and sound quality were unmatched. My old headset is now "green" with envy (if you get my point) as I plan to retire it for a Zulu!
 
   — Matt Sunseri, Pilot, Owner, Skyline Aviation
 
  Banner flying aircraft are loud. The engine has straight stacks, no cowling, no windows and no door. I average 4 to 8 hours a day, 7 days a week for 4 months during the Ocean City, Maryland season. Hearing protection is paramount. The Lightspeed Zulu does the trick.  
 
 
   — Justin von Linsowe, Banner airplane pilot
 
     
  As the wife of a pilot, I would like to express how impressed I am with the Zulu headset. Throughout the years, my husband and I have enjoyed flying to locations throughout the United States. Previous headsets would leave the sides of my head sore, and prevented a proper seal. Our recent purchase of Zulu headsets have been a wonderful experience in canceling out noise while allowing extreme comfort. I wished we had purchased these years ago. Thank you, Lightspeed!
