Headset upgrade

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place for this post..

 

But does anyone know of any places in Australia that will install ANR kits to a currently PNR headset?

FWIW..... I sent my passives to Lightspeed for a trade in on a new set of ANR. Got the SIERRA's. A base model but are ANR and have blue tooth connection.....all that I need.

 

You lose a bit on postage but are still in front I think...

 

What's my old headset worth?

a long time ago I bought Headsets inc. (link in Downunder post) ANR kits and fitted them to my existing headset.

 

They work well and still in use, but I run them on aircraft power rather than 9V battery

My Zephyr (composite & wood) motivated by a  Rotax 912 ULS - its so quiet a rarely switch on my Clark ANR.  It is quite easy to hold a normal conversation with my passenger without the aid of intercom. Compared with the Cessna's ,I used to fly, its almost chapel like.

Hi All,

 

I know this thread has been silent a while but I have made an account to let you all know that we (Range Avionics) are Australian Dealers for Headset Inc products including the ANR kits. We can carry out dealer install of the kits at a fixed price in most serviceable headsets or helmets or otherwise kits can be installed DIY by anyone with average soldering and wiring skills. Kits come complete with diagrams, instructions and all materials needed to make the upgrade. For anyone interested, feel free to get in contact with us directly or through the forum, I will try to monitor this and provide assistance if anyone needs it. The kits are great and offer an excellent low cost entry point to ANR, half the price of similar performance ANR sets. For a bit more of technical review into them, check this link out; Flyer Magazine ANR Comparisons and Reviews.

 

Thanks and happy flying,

 

Julian

 

P.S. Also happy to answer any other questions people might have.

An approximate price for the kit and the install price would be good information.  I have been considering to fit your unit as I have read the reviews.  Also do you have a 9 volt suply from the aircraft.

 

Thanks Mike

Hey Mike,

 

Thanks, info below;

 

We have the ANR kits available and in stock for headsets and helmets, which include the ANR modules, all materials required for the install and the manual. As a power source you can either get the Auto-Shutoff Battery Box, 12V to 9V converter, 24V to 9V converter or USB to 9V converter. 

 

Prices as of April:

 

M-001-A Headset Kit - $299.00 incl

 

M-002-A Helmet Kit w/ Gel ear seals - $330.00 incl

 

M-003-A Helmet Kit w/ Gel ear seals - $330.00 incl

 

Auto Shutoff Battery Box - $29.70 incl

 

Panel Mount Power Supply  for 12V or 24V aircraft - $80.00 incl

 

USB to ANR Plug Converter - $99.00 incl

 

*Kits differ due to helmet and headset compatibility, not performance. Extra clearance kits are required in some installations.

 

Installation by a qualified avionics technician is $253.00 incl for any compatible and serviceable headset. Main audio cable can also be replaced during the install if required, and we are currently sourcing a main lead replacement with rechargeable power pack and Bluetooth capability, more info to come when available.
