Active Noise Reduction very effective
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2020
Before I retired 11 years ago I used noise reduction headsets in the cockpits of Boeing 727s. Those cockpits can get pretty loud above mach .85. Those headsets were pretty expensive so I wasn’t expecting much out of a headset in this price range. I have been very pleasantly surprised. This headset far exceeds my expectations. So far I have used it on our ZTR mower (32 HP engine), Kubota BX23, diesel farm tractor, chainsaw, and weed eater. The active noise reduction is effective with all of these tools. I had been using a set of 3M radio headphones but in order to hear the radio above the equipment noise I had to have the volume all the way up. I decided this wasn’t good for my 77 year old ears so I decided to give this headset a try. These don’t have the radio but they pair with my phone and I can listen to the FM radio on my android phone through the headset. My phone uses the audio cord for a radio antenna but it doesn’t have to be plugged into the headset. I just keep the cord in my pocket with the phone and pair the headset and the phone with Bluetooth. I also wear the headset with just the active noise reduction activated and am happy with the job it does.
Note: To pair the headset to your android phone hold the power button on the headset in until the little blue light next to it alternates flashing blue and red then it should show up on your phone’s Bluetooth pairing mode and then go ahead and pair the two.
