Following on from my other post: does anyone have experience with SEHT sets? Someone recommended that I get one of their ANR headsets over a PNR DC.

Anyone have any experience with Seht 30-75, Faro G2 ANR or Mendelssohn HM40 ANR-C? All about half the price of the top brand names.

The mic (M1 amp dynamic) on my very old DC H10-30 seems a bit dated and causes interference on the intercom.

For use in noisy cockpit of RV-12.

flyme, I don't know any of those three options but have had a quick look at the various websites. What struck me is that they are all DC H10-13.4 clones. In a way that shows how good the original model was and is. I have used a headset like that for a couple of years (can't remember the brand now) and bought a DC H10-13X afterwards. From that experience I would say: you get what you pay for. Overall, the quality of the small details on the DC meant that it had a better passive noise reduction, due to the sealing on all the small holes and fittings on the earcups, and the electronics were better, providing a better, cleaner sound. The better headsets also come with better microphones. I have also tried the Bose A20 and although I prefer the DC, the quality on that is really good as well. If you're in a noisy cockpit, my suggestion would be to invest in a decent headset. You can replace the aircraft, you cannot replace your hearing.
By the way, you could also look into a replacement mike for your DC, they are pretty good with spares support. Or contact them and see if they can advise you on what mic would work best for your intercom.

Adams Aviation are most excellent about headset advice. I would highly recommend them. The only confusion is there are at least 3 Steves, so always get their surname. The last place to go is www.Flightstore.co.uk as they have no knowledge about the products only what is written on the box. I had a really funny conversation about the Bose A20. He kept pronouncing it Bossy. I said its Bose but he did not listen he just kept saying the same thing. So they no nothing and obviously cant read either. It was like a comedy sketch. So definitely Adams aviation. Depending on where you are if you pop in and see them they will give you really good time and advice.

Jhieminga, thanks for your post.

I have changed the microphone on my DC 10H-30 with Dave Clark retrofit kit P/N 18376G-02 M-7/DC Electrect Mic. Supplied by Global Aviation, total cost incl post, Euro 132.83. Works very well.
I like the ruggedness of the DC. Some years ago I fitted an Adams retrofit ANR kit. Also works good.
I'm a bit put off the Bose due to the plastic Y-pieces (I have a Bose music headset, which I'm very pleased with).

I usually make short flights in a noisy RV-12, if you are long haul in a quite cockpit, I can see the attraction of Bose.

You're welcome! Do you by any chance fly 'Piet'? Or is that another RV-12...? I know that there are several around in our low-lying little country.

Sticking to headset advice so that this post can stay in place: Anyone here who has upgraded from a DC H10-13X to a DC One-X? I'm thinking about it.... I like the carbon frame and weight but don't know how well it compares in noise reduction.

Any forums for sales of used headsets?

Hey all, PPL student in Europe, looking to pick up a used but good condition Lightspeed Sierra (from a seller in EU). Anybody recently upgraded or with recommendations for sales forums elsewhere?

Since we are talking about headsets, can anyone recommend a good shop to service and overhaul them, possibly located in Central Europe?

Hello, I’m looking to buy the Faro G2 anr headset. Does somebody know if it is a good product or it is better to look for something else ? I’ve read some reviews and while some are good some aren’t so good. Thanks in advance

See my post #83 above... You get what you pay for in this department. If you are willing to invest more, I would do it.
