    I loved this $100 headset. Not so much anymore. Hopefully my giant PPL flight bag will fit in the washing machine, it's a bit cold out to hit the car wash.

    Yep, breast implant silicone goo, that water doesn't seem to dissolve.

    It’s a miracle of modern medicine. After the procedure and resulting embellishments, would you want that goo to “dissolve?” And people complain about healthcare...

    Was this just careless and reckless use of K-Y jelly?

    Even worse: I kept a spare set of those in my emergency/survival bag that sat in the plane for years and was checked yearly for perishables.

    When they blew up from the heat, everything in the survival bag was evenly coated with schmoooo!

    Too cold in San Diego? SRSLY?

    May I ask the brand name of the $100 headset?

    I just replaced a set on my DCs. Seems to be rather common.

    I was in upstate NY.

    I don't think you can buy it anymore. I'm back in San Diego and I left it in NY. I looked at $100 headsets from the usual places and don't see it.

    Clean them up with some alcohol pads and put on a new set of earseals... Good stuff.
