LightSPEED Technologies' K-Series Active Noise Reduction Headsets

Since Bose first introduced their $1,000 ANR headset to aviation in 1989, we've been waiting for a headset with the same sublime comfort and spectacular noise reduction but at half price. Headset giants David Clark, Peltor and Telex all jumped into the fray, but all came up short in our judgement. Now, some ex-Tektronix audio whizzes in Lake Oswego, Oregon, have come up with a innovative $439 ANR headset that comes within a hair's breadth of the comfort and quiet of the Bose but costs less than half as much. We rate the LightSPEED 20K the clear price-performance winner among ANR aviation headsets. They also have an economy model 15K priced at $299 that compares very favorably with the $600 ANRs we've tested.
