Portland, OR (April 15, 2015) — Lightspeed Aviation announces that it will be personally demonstrating its new top-of-the-line Zulu PFX headset at key aviation events in Europe beginning with Aero Friedrichshafen on April 15th. Officially launched last July, the latest in Lightspeed’s line of innovative products has quickly earned the respect of U.S. pilots and has won multiple awards, including a CES Innovation Award Honoree title. In Europe’s aviation scene, however, it is still relatively unknown.
“We’ve been looking forward to the opportunity to personally demonstrate Zulu PFX to the pilot community in Europe,” said Teresa De Mers, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Support for Lightspeed. “The performance and comfort it delivers are getting rave reviews from pilots that are flying with it and we are humbled by the award recognition it is getting.”
Indeed, this addition to the Zulu family does incorporate a host of technological advances that, according to a number of editorial and customer reviews, have been delivering better noise cancellation than its competitors, as well as increased voice clarity and music fidelity:
- Streaming Quiet™ dynamic ANR is a breakthrough in noise reduction technology extending the amount, consistency, and frequency range of noise cancellation. This is especially important in the European market where so many general aviation pilots fly with a Rotax engine. The Zulu PFX has the ability to reach into higher frequencies for better noise reduction than other ANR headsets on the market.
- Acoustic response mapping personalizes the headset to the individual by using sound waves and advanced signal processing to measure the unique acoustic properties of user’s ear, adapting the ANR to this unique auditory landscape.
- A variety of audio and other preferences can be personalized using enhanced capabilities in FlightLink, the free, proprietary app developed by Lightspeed for the Apple iPad® and iPhone®. (FlightLink still includes its original in-cockpit recording function — now Bluetooth®)
And, in another headset first, the digital platform that Zulu PFX uses allows the firmware to be updated. In fact, Lightspeed recently offered the first upgrade free of charge, giving current owners better performance and a new feature.
“Aero Friedrichshafen is the perfect place for a new headset to make its European debut,” said De Mers. “In addition to our exhibit space, there is a headset test area where pilots can try all of the leading headsets in one location, and we encourage them to do that.”
Zulu PFX is offered in configurations to fit nearly any aircraft and is available through select aviation dealers or your can order directly from Lightspeed Aviation.
