German audio company Sennheiser recently introduced a new active noise canceling headset called the HMEC 250.
The headset features Sennheiser’s NoiseGard 2.0, the company’s active noise cancelling system, as well as a foldable design, separate volume controls, and auxiliary audio input for music or cell phone. Peak volume level protection, a feature that interferes when sounds go above 110 dB to protect the pilot, is also standard.
The HMEC 250 has a new Sennheiser feature called TalkThrough that allows the wearer to hear others in the cockpit directly through the headset without the need for an audio panel. The passenger’s voice is picked up through a small microphone in the ear cup that then plays over the headset.
The HMEC 250 weighs 11 oz., is black and silver, and comes with a padded headband and comfort ear seals. Retail price for the new HMEC 250 is $549.

Five aviation apps developers make their pitch to AOPA members.
When a spouse rolls his or her eyes at the notion of another flight around the patch, here's a reward for your most adoring—and least judgmental—substitute passenger.
Flight Training Apps lets you be a fly on the wall during the ground portion of a private pilot checkride.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
