Actually, on closer examination it looks like the cable and the mic are co-located so when the mic is disconnected I doubt they work.
I still love the idea of the tap through for when you’re flying with one of those idiots that doesn’t use the intercom. I have a set of Sony noise canceling ear buds that do that. It’s not perfect in that application, but it does an ok job.
I would have to try it to see if I liked it or not, but based on the looks alone I don't think I can bring myself to even try it. I just sold my Clarity Aloft Classic and bought a Clarity Aloft Pro Plus and I don't think a headset can get any better. I am not a big fan of traditional headsets that have to clamp to the head, and this seems to be a weird combo of having to clamp AND go in ear...
No doubt that the audio quality would be really good and music quality while piping music through will be the best though.
Because that’s what I care about when choosing a headset. My Lightspeeds that I bought used finally died and they’re too old for lightspeed to repair, so I’ve been using the Bose shipsets at work. At this point you could paint the lightspeeds neon pink and have them look like a box on the outside and I’d wear them instead of the Bose.
