Lightspeed Aviation has updated the Zulu headset with new ear seals, cables, and other tweaks that aim to increase comfort and durability.
The Portland, Oregon, firm announced the Zulu 3 active noise reduction headset Feb. 7, taking aim at the competition with a sales pitch based on comfort, performance, durability, and a “Trade Up” offer that could reduce the Zulu 3’s $850 purchase price by up to $350 for those trading in select models.
"We've taken an iconic product that is trusted by a large cross section of pilots around the world and made it even better," said Teresa De Mers, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Lightspeed Aviation, in a news release. "Zulu 3 is the most comfortable, most durable headset Lightspeed has ever made."
The Zulu 3 headset is backed by a seven-year warranty.
