The Telex Airman 7 is a lightweight headset with boom microphone designed specifically for optimizing pilot communications in commercial and business turbine aircraft. Building on the tradition of the Airman 750, the Airman 7 has improved durability, intelligibility, and comfort. Soft pliable ear cushions and headband pads combine with dual direction ear cup pivots to provide long flight wearing comfort.
The Airman 7 features a high-quality amplified electret microphone for clear voice transmission.
A strong stainless steel headband with metal pivots improves durability for long headset life. The new microphone boom design provides stronger rotation stops, utilizing the full diameter of the ear cup. Furthermore, a pre-coiled overhead cord has been added to extend the useful life of the headset. The main headset cord is also more robust and features an improved design of the band relief on the ear cup entrance.
Comfort and Fit
The soft headband pad and lightweight design provides comfort, even on long flights. An added yoke provides enhanced comfort by allowing ear cup movement in all directions. Furthermore the Airman 7 comes with replaceable ear cup covers and optional leatherette ear cushions.
