Lightspeed Sierra is $650.I love Bose but the sticker shock is painful. Any recommendations for a reasonably priced noise cancelling headset?
After extensive online research and speaking with multiple pilots, I chose the Headsets Inc. DRE-6001 ANR Headset - with dual GA plugs as offered by Aircraft Spruce at a reasonable price of $359.00. Various colors available. Additionally, this headset came standard with the David Clark Model M-7A amplified electret microphone which performs admirably in high noise environments like Just Aircraft STOL planes.I love Bose but the sticker shock is painful.

Last I checked, those are mutually exclusive. You're either passive or active (the A in ANR), but you can't be both.A passive set with ANR is the best I think...
Not at all. In fact, one of the 'knocks' against some of the less expensive early ANRs was how bad they were if the 'A' quit working for any reason. The Headsets Inc conversions mentioned earlier are precisely what TFF described: Start with a high quality passive noise reduction headset,which physically blocks/absorbs as much of the noise as possible, and then build the active cancellation into the earcups.Last I checked, those are mutually exclusive.

I can't figure out how to order or where it says how to send a set in???It's probably more than $95 now, but it's a lot less than an ANR conversion or decent ground-up ANR headsets. I'll be sending my Peltors in soon, followed by my "daily driver" 50 year old David Clarks.
