Lighspeed Aviation Zulu Headset Auction

Lightspeed Aviation is one of the sponsors of the documentary, A Pilot's Story, being put together by Wilco Films. They've donated a Zulu headset, which Wilco has put up for auction. All proceeds to go towards defraying some of the cost of the film.

A Zulu headset sells for $900...so here's your chance to get one for somewhat less than that! (There is a reserve on it.)

Good cause, great product. Check it out!

The auction is on Ebay and there are 2 more days left in it.

The new Zulu headset looks different because it is different. Made with magnesium and stainless steel it's extremely durable and yet weighs just over 13 ounces.

Because of its unique ear cup design, Zulu has more total noise cancellation than any headset on the market. Simply put, you get broader noise attenuation over the entire audible range.

Rather than concentrating purely on cutting decibels, our engineers looked at how pilots perceive noise at different frequencies. Their goal was to make the Zulu feel so much better than any other headset, that when someone put it on, the first words would be "Wow".
