Increased durability and improved comfort with AIRMAN 7 and AIRMAN 8:
Telex industry-standard aviation headsets just got even better!

New design and materials to provide increased headset durability
  • New microphone boom design providing stronger rotation stops
  • More robust headband to glider joint
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel rotator pins improving the ear cup’s rotation
  • Pre-coiled overhead cord reducing the strain on the cord
Additional features to improve user comfort
  • Added yoke allowing ear cup movement in all directions and reducing pressure points
  • Soft headband pad and newly designed clothing clip
  • Modified replaceable ear cup screens
  • Replaceable ear cup covers and leatherette ear cushions (standard for AIRMAN 8, optional for AIRMAN 7)
  • Acoustic limiter protects users against sudden increases in sound levels
  • Enhanced ANR (Active Noise Reduction) with even more noise reduction to improve intelligibility and reduce pilot fatigue (AIRMAN 8 only)
  • Position of the ANR switch has moved to the forward-facing ear cup side so the headset doesn’t need to be removed to reach the switch
AIRMAN 7 and AIRMAN 8 meet the highest current standards in commercial aviation
  • Technical requirements as defined by Airbus and Boeing
  • Standards defined by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)
  • Fully comply with ARINC (Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated) requirements

Telex AIRMAN 7 and AIRMAN 8 headsets will be available worldwide from September 2017 onwards.
