ANR hadsets with the doors off?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with the Bose A20 or the Lightspeed Zulu 2 and flying with the doors off the helicopter. I am wondering if the rotor wash and wind will interfere with the clarity of the mic. Does anyone know if one is better than the other in this department?


On a side note, is the Lightspeed Zulu 2 made in the USA?

I have Bose, and wind noise seems to be amplified somewhat. It is especially noticeable when turning base with a moderate to strong wind coming through the cabin. All in all they are still better than the old DC's I had. :D

I have the Zulu 2, flying in an R22 doors off, The wind and blade slap activate the mic sometimes. Yes I get some blade slap, and don't always keep in trim... there always seems to be wind when I fly ;). (Probably more because I just started training but, I'm slowly getting better.) No experience with the Bose, went with the Zulu because when I tried the Bose at the Expo, they hurt my head.
