FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oshkosh, WI (July 29, 2013) — Lightspeed Aviation announces the launch of Zulu PFX, its new top-of-the-line ANR aviation headset. Designed around Lightspeed's new proprietary PFX (for Personal Flying Experience) technology, this addition to the Zulu family incorporates a host of technological advances that promises to deliver new levels of quiet by adapting ANR and audio responses to the user's ears, environment, and personal preferences.
Personal Flying Experience refers to a trio of proprietary innovations that allow the headset to adapt to its user and the cockpit environment, creating customized ANR responses and a personalized audio profile:
When combined, these innovations create a dramatic increase in the amount, consistency, and frequency range of noise cancellation, as well as improved voice clarity and music fidelity. In fact, Lightspeed is confident that the new Zulu PFX headset is the quietest aviation headset available.
"Zulu PFX is the result of over two years of development and we are excited about the improvements we can offer pilots in their flying experience as a result," said Allan Schrader, President of Lightspeed Aviation. "We look forward to sharing this with all of the attendees here at AirVenture this week, and in the months to come as more pilots have a chance to 'get personal' with Zulu PFX."
Zulu PFX also includes other features that set it apart from current offerings. New cables are built around a Kevlar® core that deliver substantial improvements to flexibility and strength. Firmware can be upgraded through computers running Apple or Windows operating systems, providing easy access to new software innovations or other upgrades.
Lightspeed made sure to enhance many of the features that make its Zulu.2 headset so popular, including LightComfort™ design, Auto ShutOff™, ComPriority™ and full streaming audio Bluetooth® connectivity.
Summing up PFX technology, Teresa De Mers, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Lightspeed, stated, "One of the core aspects of the Lightspeed brand is embodied in the concept of personal. With Zulu PFX, we have achieved a huge breakthrough in delivering not only a quieter, more pleasant flying experience, but also a very personal one."
Zulu PFX is offered in configurations to fit nearly any aircraft and will be available to ship by the end of September 2013. Orders are currently being accepted by authorized Lightspeed dealers and on the company's website. For more information, visit LightspeedAviation.com.
