New Headset from Beyerdynamic


The new HS 400 Signum/Rotor headset from German manufacturer beyerdynamic provides passive noise attenuation for a safe flight as well as allowing you to enjoy music from your MP3 player with beyerdynamic sound quality.

The small audio box with two volume controls (left/right) enables you to connect your mobile phone/iPhone as well. While the HS 400 Signum has double jack plugs, the HS 400 Rotor is the helicopter version with a coiled cable and a single U-174/U jack plug.

This lightweight headset (11 ounces) features soft skin ear seals (viscoelastic filling) and provides maximum wearing comfort, the company says. The standard version comes with ear cups in a silver metallic surface. Additionally, you can customize the HS 400 Signum/HS 400 Rotor using the company’s web site. Choose from a wide range of different materials and colors. A personal laser engraving makes your creation unique.

A five-year warranty is standard on all of the company’s aviation headsets. Suggested retail price is 289 EUR ($375 at current exchange rates). The headsets are available at select pilot shops or directly from beyerdynamic. For more information, visit
