How did the music demo sound at the booth? Nice. Really nice. The rumble of the hangar’s noise pulled back to a blanket of blessed quiet. And the audio quality of Foreigner’s “Cold as Ice” courtesy of the company’s iPod was crisp and vivid. The headset itself was light and well balanced, with no uncomfortable clamping pressure or hot spots.

Lightspeed’s Mark Shepard added that the Zulu:P had been announced before it became widely available, and the $900 headset, which has given the Bose X a run for its money, is available from the company’s usual retail distributors such as Aircraft Spruce, Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast Avionics, and Sporty’s.
