I've used helmets for a long time now: the choice is really an individual one, some heads prefer one make, some another: same as motorbike helmets, they tend to suit different head shapes!

I have used Alpha now for the past 15+ years, but whatever you get I would recommend CEP rather than ANR. I had ANR fitted to my last Alpha and it couldn't cope with doors off ops in helicopters (same for open cockpit stiff wing), so my Alpha Eagle has CEP which is absolutely brilliant for clarity and noise attenuation. Plus it can be transferred between headsets and helmets, and always has the fallback of using the built in speakers
