    Mrs. P needs a new headset. Top priority is that it be lightweight and comfortable. ANR not necessary; our 172 is pretty quiet. Bluetooth for music would be nice, but an input jack would be fine, too.

    Recommendations? Thanks.

    Over ear.

    Budget amount would be helpful to posters.

    Under $500 would be good.

    I have two sets of these that I really like. They are the best bang-for-the-buck headsets that I have run across. They fit the description of what you are looking for, both feature wise and cost, plus they are also ANR. It you do a google search you can probably find a better price than Aircraft Spruce.

    I can't get under $500 but I am doing like new wireless Lightspeed Tango's for $625. I have been doing some flying with the Tango in various airplanes and they work excellent. It is nice not having a cord. Batteries last around 12 hours on a charge.

    I tried the Tango because wireless seemed like such a good idea. The weight of the battery made them really uncomfortable.
