  1. John

    Great beginner/passenger headset

    I’ve been very pleased with this headset. It’s a great value and comfortable. I had one issue with my first one, but Faro sent me a replacement, and rather quickly! Great headset, great company!

  2. Dean

    Nice headset for the price

    The only gripe I have is that the foam ear pads sometimes come off and are hard to get back in place.

  3. Steph Watson

    Great Headset

    this is an excellent headset and makes flying easier because it is comfortable and clear sounding.

  4. Keny

    Great product!

    I have been using my headset now for several months and I really enjoy them. Compared to the over-priced other headsets out there I have used these are steal and quite comparable. I have tried the mp3 feature on the ground but not in flight. I really love that I can control the volume from headset too. Overall these are great and I love them. I only wish that I had seen the ANR before I purchased my PNR. Great job FARO! I look forward to many more flights with this headset.

  5. Darrel

    Great headset at a great price!

    This is a wonderful headset at a very good price. The passive noise reduction is very good, the gel ear cups are very comfortable, and the sound is clear. My only complaint is that this headset is somewhat heavy. I am otherwise very pleased with this quality made product.

  6. Stlcdr

    Excellent Value

    I have used these for over 35 hours, now, while training. The value is outstanding, and quality excellent. I do wear spectacles, and find that it puts a bit of pressure on them, so the noise tends to ‘leak’ in, and the comfort is a bit lower than they could be, but that may be mostly down to my glasses, rather than the headset. They are slightly heavy, but the solid construction and lower price, this is expected.

    I would definitely recommend these as a starter headset, but also anyone who is on a budget (and with the price of AVGas, who isn’t?!) or needs an occasional set for passengers.

  7. Alan Crowder

    Very happy

    Just received a fresh pair of G2 head sets. They arrived in great condition with no damage. In my initial use, these are very comfortable and are excellent in reduction of background noise. The quality, fit, and mic operation are exceeding expectations.

    Very happy with my purchase!

  8. Headset


    Excellent headset for the money! I have never had a problem hearing even with weak radios.

  9. Thompson Air

    Good price, short mic

    I’ve used this headset for just over 60 hours. The price and style were my deciding factors to purchase them. The reviews I had read before purchase said they worked well but the mic was a bit short; I agree. If the mic we’re a bit longer their would be no problem positioning it to talk. I would not purchase the set again unless the mic was longer, and then I would have no hesitation.

    The set was a bit uncomfortable on the top of the head at first, but after about 10 hours of use it was okay for about two or three hours at a time. The ear cushions tend to come off, and it takes a little patients to slip them back on without damaging them.

    The volume on the accessory plug is low. I think that is due to not being a powered headset (no batteries).

    I like the volume control on the ear pieces, and the mono/stereo switch has its place on the cord. If one ear doesn’t work, check the switch. The cord link is appropriate.

  10. ThePilotGuy

    Descent Headset

    Good as expected. Very comfortable, good warranty, differential volume control for each ear. I haven’t used the mp3 but i think that’s a nice feature to have. the mic is pretty flexible and you can easily place it just next to your mouth.

  11. Aaron

    Great Headset

    Headset works great. I would recommend it.

  12. snow-lag


    I’m towing glides, and the headset runs well.

  13. Steve

    Would Buy again

    Great customer service. My headset came with the stereo selector switch broken and it was immediately replaced with a new one in hand within a week. I am really enjoying my new headset. It is quiet and comfortable and all at a great price. Highly recommend.

  14. medpilot

    Great quality but could have been SUPER great if the mouth piece was longer.

    My very first aviation headset. Works great,price is great couldn’t be any thankful for such a great work.Will definitely recommend to fellow pilots. In the future though,please make the mics./mouth piece longer.

  15. CJ

    Excellent headsets!!

    The headsets are awesome and the totally drown out engine noise on a King Aie and a Beechcraft 1900. I agree that the mic needs to be a little longer. Also, the IPhone adapter cable was bad out of the box. You should make that cable a 90degree connector and it would last a lot longer. You won’t find a better headset until you get to the $500 range and you still won’t find a better color selection even then. I ordered pink….cause not a ramper in the world would be caught wearing my pink headsets:)

  16. bjthomas86


    Great product, buying another one.

  17. Kevin

    Really good headset.

    The headset works great and I have no problem with it except the arm for the microphone could have been a little longer. Not a huge issue and other then that it is a great headset.

    One thing I really like is how light it is. It barly feels like you’re wearing a headset.

  18. Kevin Overton

    G2 headset

    I Recently purchased a G2 headset. As a student pilot, I was not sure what to look for prior to the purchase. I took a gamble with the FARO G2, based on previous reviews. I love them. The first day out of the box, used them for 2 hrs. The noise cancellation,comfort and overall quailty were second to none.

    Thanks FARO great product.

  19. Kool Hand

    Will recommend them to others

    Over all, I like them. Nice looking, comfortable, quiet. The intercom is clear though the tx side seems to lack some sensitivity when I talk. Have to talk loud to be heard (with intercom setting appropriate). The plugs wire are fairly stiff, would be nice to have them more flexible.

  20. Harrison

    Durable and Great Quality

    I bought the Faro G2 PNR headset back in 2012. This headset took me all the way from my student pilots certificate to my CFI-I. I have an absolute love hate relationship with this headset. They have never failed me and offer many features that similarly priced headsets just don’t offer. They are durable I’ve never had anything break on me and they require limited maintenance ( New ear seals 2015 and the occasional tightening of the nut that controls the swivel action). My only complaint with this headset it clarity. I fly a lot of different types of aircraft and I always seem to have a problem with being heard clearly (without static background) or having a constant white noise. Granted this has only started in the last year but the headset is still extremely functional. As an Instructor I have found the need for an ANR headset to cut down on fatigue. So the search begins but I am fairly certain that this headset will make a wonderful spare headset and I can assure you its not going anywhere.

    == FARO: Thank you for your review. Please contact Faro Customer support and we would be happy to provide you with a replacement microphone at no cost.

  21. Jason

    Very Good

    Overall the headset is a great option for the price and comfort is quite good. The only negative I have to the entire unit is that it can be difficult to break into the vox. If Faro were to make the mic a bit more sensative and easier to break the vox this would be the all out ultimate headset for the price. None the less I am quite happy with my purchase and will likely purchase more as backups (with the hope that Faro fixes the vox difficulty)

    — Thank you for your feedback. VOX is generally adjusted on the avionics using the squelch knob, however, the microphone and how sensitive it is can also play a role. Your suggestion has been forwarded to Faro engineers.

  22. gsthuntr

    Great value for your $

    I have just become a student pilot and I hated the headsets at the FBO. I did not want to spend 300-400 on David Clark’s (recommended by instructor) and thought I would try these. I love them, comfort, quality, look cool wearing them. I showed my instructor and he said wow great buy.

  23. Mickel

    Excellent, parfait

    Qualité, prix excellent. Solide et fiable. Pas d’ennui avec le micro. Atténuation des bruits très efficace.
    Merci beaucoup pour ce grand sérieux dans tous les domaines.Que du ++++++

  24. James Tripson

    Shopping for a headset

    I purchased a Faro headset for my son to use.
    This headset is as good or better than any on the market.

    I have over 42 years of flying experience,from flying a C-141 during the Vietnam era, Presidential support missions, flying a DC-10, B-737,worlwide, not to mention many light single engine and multi-engine aircraft ranging from a Cessna 150 to a diamond jet.

    I have a small amount of experience when it comes to using a headset.

    If you play poker,, in “Texas Hold-Em” the best dealt hand is a pocket pair of aces,,you move “All-In” when a big bet is placed.

    A Faro Headset is a pair of aces.

    If you are a young aviator or an old fart like me looking for a headset move “ALL-In” with a Faro.

    Their customer service is second to none and you may choose any color headset you desire.
    My son aTexas A&M graduate,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, guess what color headset I purchased for his use.

    Fly safe,

    So Good.

    Awesome headset – great price, great quality.

  26. CFO Bob


    This is one of those products you buy, use, compare to others you e used in the past and say to yourself, “how do they do it for the price?” great quality, amazing comfort!!

  27. Scott

    Great Value

    I bought two sets for the back seat, but find myself using them in the front seat more and more.

  28. Steve


    On my last trip I had some problems with my Bose and reached in the back seat for my Faros. They were great. Now I am eager to try their new products.

  29. carmenfsimon

    Relación calidad-precio muy buena. Recomendables. Carmen-Spain

    Relación calidad-precio muy buena. Recomendables.

  30. stan

    great quality for the $$

    A little on the heavy side, but everything else very good

  31. Pilotwife

    Noise enters headset from where the 3.5 mm wire plugs in.

    Got this headset because I couldn’t justify spending so much money on a set of Bose for as infrequently as I fly with my husband. Worked great for the first year or so, 15-20 flights then I started noticing the noise on one side. Happened to put my finger over the inlet for the auxiliary wire and noise stopped. Have to have something over or in the inlet or very noisy on that side.

    — FARO: Please contact Faro Aviation for replacement.

  32. Bijan

    Almost perfect.

    I have had my Faro headsets for about two months. Quality and performance are really very good. An excellrnt product forthe money. I had a question about the operation. Support service is also very good.

  33. Brett

    Great price for a great product

    Everything works great! A great product for comfort, noise reduction and price. My only concern is the that the G2 Aviation Headset, when using the G1000 in the Cessna 172S, seems to have the automatic squelch too high. Even though the microphone is on my lips, the microphone is difficult to activate. I turn on manual squelch and lower the squelch every time I fly.

  34. Skip

    Sturdy Product

    I did not give any 5s because I haven’t dropped it by accident to see if it would hold up. I take care of my items I buy. You have a good productn 10-4!

  35. bribritx

    Awesome Headset!

    I really like this headset and have used it multiple times in a noisy Piper Cub. With this headset, i can hardly hear the roaring engine and clearly hear other pilots. Its very comfortable and i love how you can choose your own color! A HIGHLY recommended product!

  36. Cellcrete

    Great Product

    I just got them and have used them about 12 hours. SUPER Headsets. I have a new aircraft arriving soon and will be ordering 5 more sets to fit out the plane.

  37. Aaron

    Great 1st Headset

    I don’t have experience with other headsets so I cannot provide a comparison. I do wear over-ear headphones for 6-8 hours a day and have had plenty of experience with different brands so I know how comfortable a pair of good headphones can be. The Faro G2 Headset is very comfortable for the weight. The mic boom is well constructed and as long as the foam mic cover is millimeters off my lips there is no issue with it picking up my voice. I’m flying in a 172 and I have no issue hearing ATC or my instructor. I’ve only used them for 7 hours and just after shutting down the plane on my last flight the earcup popped off as I removed the headset. It went back on with minimal effort and no damage was inflicted.

    Because I routinely use high impedance headphones as I travel, I use a cheap little amp called the FiiO E5. It’s a tiny amp that provides enough extra power to make listening to music enjoyable in the G2 headset. I haven’t had a chance to listen to music while flying so it may be a bit different up in the air. Without the amp, my iPod Nano doesn’t have enough power to adequately move the speakers in the G2.

    Overall the headset is great. It’s comfortable and serves its purpose well.

  38. ErikN

    Awesome headphones! I’ve been using these for over a year now – great sound reduction and firm feel!

    These work so well I bought a second pair for my passenger! I needed a new pair of headphones after my previous name-brand finally failed… Honestly for the price and quality I will never look elsewhere. These are great! I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a little extra cash to pay for fuel. With the mp3 input my passengers can zone out and enjoy the flight listening to their favorite tunes.

  39. Adam

    Outstanding beginners headset

    I am a student pilot and this was the first headset I ever purchased. They are very comfortable and do a great job reducing noise. I have only used the MP3 capability once and worked well. I can hear the music just fine as background music.

  40. Fly It Now


    Good headsets for the money, wish I had known about the ANR set before I bought the PNR. Thanks

  41. Tim

    Great Headset for the money

    Excellent Value. I have it for the right seat. Everyone that has uses the G2 headset likes it.

  42. jetpilot2377

    Good headset

    It’s great. everything is good.

  43. mgarchos

    Todo perfecto, all ok.

    Todo el proceso del envio, rapido y bien, los cascos, tiene una calidad muy aceptable dentro de su gama, se ajustan muy bien y amortiguan el ruido de forma considerable, son cómodos.

    The process of shipping was fast, headset has a very acceptable quality within the price range, fit very well and reduces the noise significantly, they are comfortable.

  44. Jake

    surpurb deal and quality

    One of the best flying deals. As good as my David Clark headset but 25% of the cost. This is the same ratings I would give to my DC.

    Wonderful quality and confort

  45. Kate


    I originally bought these headphones because they were a great price. But I ended up trading up after I had so many problems with the microphone constantly cutting me off. They were possibly the most comfortable headset I’ve had but the constant struggle to be heard on the radio was just too annoying.

    — FARO: Hi Kate, Thank you for your feedback. It is possible that the Squelch wasn’t set properly. Both the speakers, and microphone should allow for a very clear and crisp communication. If the problem persists, your headset is covered by a 3-year replacement warranty, please contact us for replacement.

  46. Dr. Nick

    Great Headsets

    I bought my first plane a month ago and the guy didn’t include headsets, so we flew it home without… I picked up my first pair of G2’s a few days later, and was so impressed I got 3 more! So I have 1 white pair, 1 yellow pair, and 2 pink for my daugthers. Love that you can pick a color! I have used a few diff brands, and I have to say these are an great value! Highly recommend!!!

  47. Cameron

    First headset

    I had used the other headsets at the airport where I take lessons and after using this headset, they seem to be very loud. The noise reduction was good but I guess it could be a little better. I used the Bose before in a King Air and they seemed to have more sound reduction. I fly small planes so these work just fine. Very good price and it is easy to use. I also wish it would come with a set of instructions but if you call or send Faro an email they are very helpful. This headset is also very clear for your voice and the voices of traffic around you. All in all this headset was a very good buy.

  48. gun

    A good deal

    The headset was a gift to my son who is taking flying lessons in Iceland. He has now taken them up in the air and told me they were great but like some others he had minor problems with the mic. It keeps breaking up with ATC and it needs to be very close to his lips. After removing the foam cover from the mic it worked better. He is currently flying an old C-172 so that could also be the problem. I am going to invite him on a DA-42 wich is brand new and compare. But guys a good deal overall. Here in our country headsets are priced from 500usd. I have another son who wants to fly so like the man said. ” I will be back”

  49. Pilott28

    Comfortable for price, one ear quit working after short time.

    The price was attractive and the headsets were reasonably light and comfortable. Passive noise control good. iPod plug is nice feature. Bought two. One worked well, the other developed a dead side after a few months.

    — FARO: Thank you for your feedback. If hearing is lost in one ear-cup, please check that you have the mono/stereo switch on the correct setting for your plane. Most planes will require Mono. If set to stereo, hearing will be lost in one ear cup until it it switched back. Please do contact should the problem persists, FARO offers a 3-year replacement warranty.

  50. Mark

    Great value for the price, surprised my Australian instructor!

    Received my headset last week and tried it out for the first time last week during my lesson in the little C-152. Really comfortable, good sound, and build quality great for the price. Dave Clarke’s are the suggested way to go for baby pilots here in Oz and my instructor, who had never heard of Faro, was pleasantly surprised!

  51. Rick

    Great headset !

    These HS are very comfortable. A bit heavy but that’s necessary to achieve the NR. I am going to get fabric ear seal covers for mine. They are an excellent value !

  52. Jackie

    Love it!

    Got this headset as Christmas gift and love it! No more icky feeling using rentals!!!!! 🙂

  53. Easty

    Hard to beat for the price.

    Used them for two months now. More comfortable and a little better noise reduction than the most popular brand for a lot less cost.

  54. David

    Great experiance and fast shipping

    The headset is very comfortable and quiet. Im very pleased with my purchase. I have an old set of David Clark and Ive had a hard time understanding comm. on them. I can hear better with my new set of G2,s.

  55. Jim

    great value

    Great headset for the price.

  56. Nate

    Great headset for the beginner

    The PNR headset that I got works very well while taking PP training flights but still a little noisy. It also works too well when using in the house on the flight simulator because I can’t hear my wife calling me for supper or to do something right now.

  57. Going for cpl

    Best value for money

    Used for a year. Has not failed yet. No issues to speak of. Haven’t used the mp3 audio jack extensively but it works as advertised. Noise cancelling is great for a passive set, and I can believe it is par to DC sets. Is tight the first few times, and clamps down around ears hard but loosens after a while and gets more comfortable.

  58. eli

    great value

    very pleased with the value and performance.

  59. spotter

    5 stars

    Great headset as advertised & fast shipping.
    I fly light sport, everyone knows that noise level, I would recommend this headset for both quality-comfort and price.

  60. Ken

    great value and purchase

    purchase on line was easy. first time purchase from faro and would purchase another. nice fit.

  61. William

    Great headset

    Great headset! Good price. Great fit,look, function. Very quiet with passive set. Will be purchasing a second set for passengers very soon! Thanks for offering these.

  62. Tim

    Great value

    I’m very happy with my G2 headset. It exceeded my expectations.

  63. Dancing with the wind

    Fantastic head set.

    great all around head set, I reviewed before but put down the wrong amount of stars…right downwind or left???

  64. Jas

    We have two. I use the G2 exclusively as a student.

    I compare it to the Bose that my spouse uses. We flew down the coast from the Oregon Pacific to Calif. then across the country to the Florida Atlantic. Why trade?

  65. dogleg

    great return service

    I had the first G2 model and had a problem with the mike after 2 1/2 years. I pulled the retaining plug out of the box and disconnected the mike wire. The return policy is a no questions asked type. If it doesn’t work, they replace it. I got the latest model for thr price of postage both ways. 0
    I think that this is a great headset and would definitely buy another. Product support is fantastic.

  66. 10P

    Mike needs to be less sensitive

    The sound quality coming into the headset is great–the mike is too sensitive and need to have some ability to adjust for the newer intercom systems. Works great in my older plane. Can’t understand the transmissions without difficulty with my newer radio panel. Put tape over one side of the mike–that helped some. Overall, nice headset. Would love to have a squelch adjust to the mike.

  67. Rob

    Great headset

    I bought this for a regular use headset and have been really impressed so far with its quality and comfort.

  68. Curt

    Great Deal for Aviators

    These headsets were on the cheaper side of aviation sets in terms of price, however, the quality you receive is quite excellent. The pressure on your ears is comfortable for up to about 2.5 hours and the sound quality allows you to both communicate with your co-pilot along with ATC and UNICOM clearly and without problem.

  69. Souhaiel

    Best quality-price ratio out there !

    I had very high expectations for this headset given all the positive reviews that I have read. Sure enough, I was blown away by the comfort and noise reduction the headset offered. The quality is great, despite the fact that the head rest can use some extra cushioning. The Mic was not short as often described, which meant that my greatest fair became obsolete. I have noticed, though, that sometimes my mic volume gets a bit low. In few instances, I had to speak louder than usual to be heard. Other than that, I am very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend it to any student pilot or GA passenger.

  70. Jon

    Very good product

    As a student pilot they make a very good first headset

  71. HenryGF

    Great headsets, delivery what they promise

    Used this for my VFR training, mostly in the Diamaond DA-20.
    Admittedly not the noisiest plane in the world, but I can’t imagine what I would want more in an aviation headset.
    Love the continuously-flexible boom mic.
    The ear cups are very comfortable – flown for about 2 hrs at a time with them…

  72. Pierre V

    Excellent choice – Trust them

    An excellent choice!
    Faro has not only an excellent product in terms of quality and price/performance solution. Their service is also exceptional.

    I’m using my Headset regularly and I don’t understand why pilots pay more other “brand”.

    My best wishes to Faro Team

    Kind regards from Switzerland

  73. Jeffery


    As a student pilot I had been using one of four brands provided by the FBO. I tried them all looking for a favorite. I thought they were all “ok”, but seemed heavy and bulky.
    As an integral part of the flying experience I decided to purchase my own.
    After much research I selected Faro. The reviews were good and the price was right. I even found a 10% discount code online.
    Wow! What a huge difference. Stylish, light and comfortable. I can adjust the volume and hear every word. I think they are as good or better at noise reduction than any I had tried before (I can still hear the stall warning!).
    My radio communications improved greatly. My CFI was impressed. I had not realized that a basic tool could be such a confidence builder.
    Thank you for a great product. I am very pleased. My first purchase was a fantastic experience.

  74. Pielot

    Great Headset

    As comfortable and as clear as my $320 headset.

  75. James

    OUT OF STOCK????

    Of course, as soon as I try to order this headset, they are out of stock. WTF?!?

    Brilliant Product, Great Price!

    Being from the UK, none of the instructors at my flying school had heard of the FARO brand, therefore I was a little dubious about ordering this headset. Having read other reviews, I decided to give them a go, and I am not disappointed in the slightest. Excellent product, good quality and exceptional price. Do be wary of the import tax that will be charged to UK customs, however even with this added to the price of the headset, it’s still a bargain compared to other similar products readily available in the UK.

  77. Ryan

    Honest review from a 5’4″ student pilot

    I purchased this headset mainly based on the good reviews I read here and on Amazon.com. Being a student pilot, price was the main factor, but I didn’t want to compromise quality. After waffling between the Faro G2 and a David Clark for $120 more, I am very happy I chose the G2. I’ve had the opportunity to sample two other comparable headsets when I started training, so it was advantageous to have a point of reference. The gel ear cups are a bit thicker than other brands, but are soft, comfortable, and seems to give you 2 to 3 extra dbs of noise reduction (which is a lot)! After a few 3 hour flights I have not experienced any abnormal fatigue. I also appreciate the wide color selection, which I don’t think you can get anywhere else. I ended up with the light-grey as I figured they would stay a bit cooler.

    Sound is crisp and clear with plenty of volume. The microphone sounds great through the headset and my co-pilot instructor said the same. The electret mic also does a great job of noise cancellation. I found that I was able to turn the input squelch down on the console.

    Being a shorter pilot, the adjustment on the headband did not slide short enough for the pad to rest on my head properly. I was expecting this, as it is an issue with all headsets of this type. I ended up buying a shorter replacement headband made for youth from David Clark (about $8) and now it fits perfectly. It would be great if Faro offered this option or something similar.

    The only small criticism I have are that they feel slightly heavier than other brands (maybe it’s the gels). Also, I really wish they made a mono version without the aux input, or at least I don’t like having to adjust two volume controls, one for each ear.

    All in all this is a quality product and an amazing value! I’m looking forward to seeing how Faro evolves their product line.

  78. Stefano

    Best quality/price

    I bought 2 from Italy, they’re the best quality at that price… well better than more expensive brands

  79. Rickster

    Great Headset !

    Great Value. Solid construction, decent NR, very adjustable. Highly recommended !

  80. matador

    very nice !

    I bought them without knowing much about the brand. (neither did my instructors knew about them) But they work really well, haven’t had any problems at all, sound is good, and i like the fact the you can
    choose different colors !
    Very satisfied with my purchase.

  81. Harry

    Very happy with purchase

    Will recommend to friends

  82. Firehawk

    Overall good construction and quality

    Although this G2 PNR headset is probably the best constructed headset I have purchased it does lack in some areas such as the lead cables are far stiffer than most, the mic is not sensitive enough to break into transmission unless it is right against your lips and without the mic muff although this might be a simple mic gain adjustment, not sure. The gel earmuffs could be a bit tighter and stiffer on the speaker housings so that as they are used in time they do not become lose an easily detached. However, that being said, the G2 PNR is a fine headset, well constructed, the PNR is excellent in all ranges and should last many years with proper care.

    — Thank you for your feedback. The microphone sensitivity has been increased on new sets. If you would like a replacement, please contact us.

    Great headset for the price!!!

    The noise cancellation works extremely well! I love it except it would be nice if they would make the mic just a hair longer. If they did, this would truly be the perfect headset.

  84. Nathan

    great quality & value

    I have been able to go for 2 hours with only a slight readjustment very comfy, they include little extras that i did not expect and i am impressed

  85. Greg

    Very good for a first headset

    Not bad at all for the price, I recommend the Faro headset as a good beginner for new pilots…

  86. Flygirlpic

    Nice Headset!

    I am a student pilot and not willing to put 1K towards a Bose Headset. I read some excellent reviews about the Faro Headsets and decided to take a chance on it. The headset is great. I have not had any problems with it. My CFI and I had to switch headsets one day because his mic wasn’t working. The Bose headset had better noise reduction (as it should for the price) and the earpieces were softer but not $800 softer.
    So, I’d say if you are on the fence BUY the Faro Headset. Your’e wallet will thank you.

  87. Maverick


    Got them a few weeks ago and have already flown around 7 hours in them. Part of it was a 3 hour cross country flight, and they did not get uncomfortable the whole time! These are a great value

  88. lowyoyo

    Great purchase as a first headset

    Good build quality, and particularly appreciate the heavy duty connectors (when compared to say, the Bose A20s’)
    Sound and mic quality are on par with more expensive sets.
    Price is GREAT especially considering what you’re getting.

    Noise reduction could be a little better, but for a passive system, it performs as expected and definitely comparable to passive David Clark sets.
    And for comfort, it is actually slightly more comfortable than David Clark’s, I found personally.

  89. Josh

    Great Value

    I have had a chance to fly for about 20+hours using this headset. So far, I love this product! I’ve only had this product for a short time so the durability is unknown.

    Great Value! Won’t find a better deal on a brand new headset.
    Great color selection. (I have the green and I like it)
    Very Comfortable. I have take the Faro’s on 3-5 hour flights and I forget I have them on.
    Individual volume control for the left and right. Mono and Stereo toggle switch.

    The boom could be an inch longer but It hasn’t had any effect on my flying and/or passengers or CFI hearing me. (So it’s not really a con but more of a suggestion to elongate the boom)
    Haven’t noticed any other cons.

    GREAT HEADSET! I will eventually upgrade to something high end ($800-$1000 range) but for anything $500 and less this is probably the best value headset out there! I will buy this product again for my wife and daughter.

    I’m a student pilot flying a C-172, Faro G2 is great for the price. I tried DC 13.4 (most popular) and Faro G2 is as good. I’ve only used it for 10+ hours so can’t speak of long term durability but the quality is good so I expect it to last long. No issues with speakers and mic. The ear protection is very comfortable and blocks quite a bit of noise.

  91. JO-JO

    Well pleased, will definetly order again from this company.

    Great service and super fast shipping. I am well pleased.

  92. the Captain

    absolutely love my headset!! other headsets seem to fall apart or get shorts in the wiring. but the faro has stood up to everything ive given it and now has over 500 hours on it. still working like a charm.

    Love my headset! Has held together like a tank and still works as good and as clear as the day i purchased it. Thanks for such great product and at a great price.

  93. mooney


    Item as described. Very Fast shipping. Happy with Purchase A++++

  94. Kathy

    I can hear now!

    For the four years I’ve been flying, I had been using another relatively inexpensive headset, since I’m on a budget. I didn’t know any better until I switched to Faro. What a difference! Suddenly everyone else’s transmissions are very clear. And, I’m told, so are mine. Love the comfort of the headset, too! It seems to be a quality headset at an affordable price.

  95. Rod

    Thaks Faro for making quality so affordable!

    This headset is a real value. There is nothing else that comes close to the quality, noise reduction and performance at this price. I’ve used mine for over 60 hours and have no complaints. I would recommend them to anyone.

  96. Dustin

    Best headset and costumer service

    Faro is by far the best costumer service and headset I have ever dealt with. I had some problems with my wiring after about 2 and a half years due to the way that I wrapped my wires up for storage and they completely stood behind their word on the warranty. They headset itself is very comfortable I would compare it to a david clark headset yet cheaper and the same comfort. I bought it for the MP3 input and have yet to use it but they are very nice to have. As a pilot on a budget I was worried at first but I give them a 10/10 I am very satisfied. The girl I spoke to on customer service was also very nice and helpful. Thank you Faro.

  97. truckdog65

    exelent for the money good value….would recomend

    for the money these are very good headsets bought for my wife who now has a vested interest in the plane and likes it.

  98. Ubby

    very happy with this headset

    I’m a student pilot and have used the David Clarks, and have to say that I like the G2’s just as well. I personally prefer hearing some the engine and other noises in the cockpit and the decibel reduction of this set is just right. Very comfortable and I like that the mic is just a bit short of my mouth. It still picks up my voice well and is not so much in front. The price is the best part – hard to beat. I’d definitely recommend them.

  99. jruck


    Its a great headset for the price. Have no problem with it. If you are flying an older airplane make sure you have it set on mono also sometimes my voice doesnt go through the mic even though its placed on my lip. So I found if you talk in a certain tone it works. Hope this helps. Great headset for the price and very comfortable!

  100. bondgirl

    Solid for the price

    This headset is a good workhorse of a headset, nice sound quality and as comfortable as higher-priced sets I’ve used!

  101. ElPilotto

    Very Pleased

    Can’t beat this unit’s comfort and quality for the price.

  102. Great comfort

    easy to use

    It makes my day to use this excellent headset. It reminds me of the military one I had in the Navy and the Police Department. It has zero noise and perfect hearing range for me.

  103. Cessna Flyer

    Great Product for the price

    I bought this headset for my training, and so far everything has been great. I can hear very clearly, what others are saying. They fit comfortably on my head, and I have a large head so that was a key factor for me. The mic adjusts to where I want, and stays put. No shorts or static, just trustworthy performance every time. Thanks Faro for the headset, the price was great, and the product is top notch quality!!

  104. Slackdoor

    So so

    Worked well for about 8 months. Then one speaker quit now I’m back to my Dave clarks

    — FARO: Thank you for your feedback – please note this is most likely due to mono / stereo switch that is on the wire – if set to the incorrect one for your plane, hearing is lost in one side. Most GA planes require Mono. You can fix this by switching the knob. If this does not fix the issue, your headset is fully covered by 3-year replacement warranty, please contact us for an exchange.

  105. Dean


    I recently purchased a G2 headset from you, I used it for the first time today and it is a fantastic bit of gear, very quiet, the microphone is perfect no delay in pick up and the speakers are very clear and very comfortable to wear. I think the Faro™ G2 headset is a very top quality product at a more than reasonable  price. It’s as good if not better than the more well known brands out there. I for one will be recommending Faro products to all the aviators I know. Thank you very much.

    Victoria, Australia.

  106. Kat

    Just what I was looking for.

    I am a student pilot and found this headset to be the perfect fit! I was looking for MP3 capability and found it to be surprisingly durable, lightweight, extremely comfortable and affordable to boot! Also loved the color option! As for workability- Its got a smooth clear, sound transmission. Ive been pleased so far and look forward to using it on all my flying escapades. Thank you FARO for my RED G2 aviation headset 🙂

  107. srqpilot

    Excellent price. Good quality

    The faro G2 is a great buy for the price. Comfort is great. Really like the durability. Mic boom is fantastic. Overall quality is good. Been using it for half a year. Only one issue I find with this headset. The mic gain is to weak. Is there a way I can adjust the gain? If so, the headset would be a 5 star. It gets frustrating trying to communicate with my instructor.

    == Faro Team: Please manually adjust the squelch on your avionics. Faro microphone offer crystal clear communication so the squelch setting may be higher than a typical aviation headset.

  108. Barnacle Bill Sport Pilot

    good value

    easy to use and a great value…

  109. Pablo172


    Fast shipping! Got it in 2 days. Nice headset, used it in one flight so far, will review again after using it for a while.

  110. JBell

    Great Value Headset!

    I looked at a ton of diffrent options. As a student pilot, I didn’t want to spend a fortune. Not only did I accomplish my goal and saved some $$$, I also ended up with a great headset. If this headset continues to preform as well as it has so far, I will defiantely purchase the ANR verson later on. Thanks Faro!

  111. Av8r2

    Could’t be happier!

    I have use other headsets at twice the cost and could not detect a difference. The sound is clear with no static or distracting outside noise. The Fero is very light and comfortable. I would certainly purchase another Fero headset and recommend a friend do the same. Safe flying!

  112. Eli

    great value

    I have a few flights with it and am very pleased so far. Cant beat the features offered at this price.

  113. billmall

    great quality–excellent value

    great quality and comfort. Had to adjust the squelch as even with mic boom touching my lips, it would not pick up first few syllables.
    Other than that, no problems, over 50 hrs of flight time on the headset

  114. Beth

    Love this headset!

    I use my headset about between 6 and 15 hours a month. It’s lighter weight and much more comfortable than my last more expensive “name brand” set. I also like that it isn’t so lightweight that it feels cheap. My favorite feature is that I can plug in my iPad to watch movies during ferry flights but can still hear the crew when necessary.

  115. Bob / Dana


    I was a bit concerned about some of the comments regarding the sensivisty of the mic as well as the positioning. Upon use, I no longer have any concerns at all. The length and adjustability of the mic as well as its ability to pick up conversation easily are both excellent. A great buy for the money and my next purchase will be a Faro ANR headset. For what it’s worth, I’m an adult male over six feet tall and the other user is my thin, 17 year old daughter. Very comfortable for both of us.

  116. Darryl

    Good Starter Headset

    This is overall a good student/starter headset. The audio is good, and I love the dual volume control. The flexible mic boom is nice, but I am inclined to say that it could be a tad longer. The audio MP3 jack with included 3.5mm line is nice too, but the audio for this seems to run on a secondary level/channel (which makes sense, but don’t expect good music quality with it). The ear padding is okay, but it still gets a little uncomfortable after extended use – tolerable though. The noise reduction is probably its best feature. I’ll be using this set for a while, and depending on how long it lasts I will definitely consider getting another one.

  117. Keny

    Great Headset

    Great features for a very inexpensive headset. I really do like them and find them comparable to some of the other expensive headsets I have used. I don’t foresee me replacing these for a pair of Zulus or Bose. I wished I had seen the ANR ones before I purchased my PNR set. It would be nice if they had bluetooth. Great job FARO, I am impressed with my headset and love them. I look forward to many more flights with them.

  118. Brian S

    First Solo

    Wanted to say was worried about buying my first headset but i am so glad that i bought a Faro G2 i Just went on my First Solo today and Love the clarity of this headset my headset is clearer than my instructors who is using a light speed and it is always cutting out and crackling kinda funny i told him to go buy a FARO and he said he would look into it i hope he does then he to can enjoy the quiet sound and crisp clear sound of a FARO headset i just posted a Picture to your Facebook page of me and my Faro Thanks so much Brian S

  119. Hawk

    Well designed and constructed headset.

    A high quality headset that is designed and constructed very well. It is comfortable to wear and it reduces the aircraft noise well. The ICS and radio communications are clear.

  120. Chris

    Excellent Headset, especially for the price

    Compared to the FBO-supplied headsets I had been using, these are a dream.
    I’ve used mine for 2 months & 13 flight hours now, and believe the G2 is comparable to other brands’ models at double the price.

  121. KPDKDan

    What a deal!

    This headset is great, especially for a starter headset or a second headset. They are slightly bulkier then my David Clarks and there is a bit more background noise when keying the mic but you can’t beat them for under $200. I would absolutely recommend this headset.

  122. Brian

    Great Headset

    I’m a student pilot so I don’t have a lot to compare these to besides an old pair of sigtronics that my flight school has. The ear gels are very comfortable and I hardly know I’m wearing them. The mic is very clear and the individual volume controls are nice. My only complaint is that the ear gels fall off pretty easily; never while I’m wearing the headset but sometimes when I take the headset off an ear gel will come off too. It’s easy to get back on though.

  123. lucair

    Very good

    Low price for high quality. I reccomend it to all my fellow pilots and students.

  124. Cushionplus

    nice to choose the color

    i just got mine and i like the headset very much, i guess primarily because i can choose the pink color which i never found in other headsets. i had a dc headset before this one which i had bought second hand from the flight school and this one is MUCH MUCH better. didn’t try Boss and Lightspeed yet but the price is so high so with me saving penny by penny to keep some change for the flying, they don’t fit in my pocket but i tried my instructors and besides the weight (boss is lighter) and a bit “fitter” earpeices, didn’t notice much difference… overall i’m a happy camper with this one

  125. john1112

    Great price

    I purchased this headset after some research. I find it to be a very comfortable, although bulky, headset. My only complaint is the boom for the microphone. It doesn’t like to stay in place; with that being said, I will purchase the anr model as my next headset.

  126. Srini

    Excellent piece at unbelievably low price

    Used this in more than one aircraft that I fly; the result was consistent, given the VHF equipment varied in age, and the noise reduction quality was also good. The set is also very comfortable on your head and light in weight, and would certainly recommend this for novices as well as professionals.

  127. SJWhiteley

    Excellent starter headset

    Having just started flying, being on the lookout for a decent headset at a low price, the Faro headset seemed to fit the bill. And it does. While the main advice is to buy the best you can afford, I didn’t want to have an expensive headset sit in the drawer if it wasn’t quite right. With this Faro headset, however, the risk is minimized. You can get a feel for a decent quality headset without a large investment.

    This headset just works. It is a solid build, and good quality. The only ‘knock’ I have are that it seems quite heavy and bulky, but no more so than a couple of others that my instructor has. Additionally, the cable seems fairly stiff; it may take a while for the kinks to relax. The fit could be better, but perhaps that’s my head. after a few minutes, it doesn’t seem at all noticeable. The mike goes exactly where you want it, with the gooseneck holding it’s position.

    If I needed a second headset, or a set for passengers, I’d, without a doubt, purchase these again.

  128. K rock


    Absolutley the best deal for the money. Comfortable, best price around, and most importantly QUALITY. As far as I can tell my headset will be around for awhile. An instructor at my school made the the recommendation and I’m completlly satisfied. Thanks

  129. tonkaboy007


    These headphones are wonderful, but if one of the ear pads comes off, they are very hard to get back on.
    All in all, these are great!

  130. Flying Joe


    This headset arrived in a great condition, very fast shipping and just the best headset out there for your money.
    I tried a Bose headset on the same flight to compare and I actually liked this one better because it gave more noise cancellations without batteries and fits over your whole ear better.
    Y’all just did a super job on the whole thing.
    And also I didn’t have to spend 800.00 bucks on a used Bose or over a thousand bucks for a new one.
    One more thing, this headset came with a music port and the Bose x doesn’t have one!!!!!!!

  131. rooster

    good choice

    Used them for the first time last night. They were comfortable and generally very good. My biggest complaint is the range of volume on the ear pieces. I couldn’t turn them down enough without turning down the speaker on the panel? I do remember reading something about stereo vs. mono that could be the problem. I will go back and look. All in all I was very pleased. After much research I think the Faro G2 was the right choice for me. Low time private pilot since 1983 just returning to flying after 12 years.

  132. Markthecop

    For the money an excellent product

    Very good and durable. I enjoy the comfort on long cross country flights as well as it’s ability to link into other communications or cell phone.

  133. John

    Great headset. Quiet and comfortable.

    I bought a pair of these for my Grumman Cheetah. The headsets are very comfortable and quiet, even with the canopy open at 110kts. The mic is very quiet and doesn’t pic up much wind noise. I added more padding to the headband since it was lacking in that department. I also added some cloth ear seal covers to help absorb the sweat on hot days. With the additions they are the perfect headset. I am very happy I didn’t spend $2k+ on two Bose headsets. Two Faros with shipping were cheaper than the cheapest David Clarks! When we upgrade our intercom to a 4 place I will be ordering 2 more!

  134. peter


    I trained in the classic David Clarks and thought…meh…they work, but could be better. I also knew I would never drop the money on a pair of Bose ( tried em…not impressed) then Faro sent me an offer too good to pass on, tried it and don’t believe I could do any better. thank you for a pair of comfortable clear headphones that I can use for many years

  135. DavidG

    Nice value, comfort, and clarity

    I’ll add to the compliments of others — the passive noise reduction is very acceptable, audio both ways is clear, and the headset is light and padded enough to be comfortable. I’ve added DC ear covers now that the weather is warmer, and they work great. I’m ordering a set for my wife too. It will be a while before I can justify ANR, based on the effectiveness of these.

  136. PA22 150

    Very good

    The best option in its price range. Comfortable for the first 2.5 hours. Quality sound and passive noise reduction. My gel packs came off a time or two. Upgraded to the Lightspeed Sierra. But the FARO G2s are the best thing under $200.

  137. Scott

    Very Pleased

    I am very happy with my Faro G2 PNR headset. I have used a friends set of David Clark and the G2 is every bit as good but more comfortable. I appreciate the volume control on each ear as well. I definately recommend the G2 and plan on purchasing another set for passengers.

  138. Neal

    Flaw in boom mike

    Like every thing about the head set except the floppy boom mike. It doesn’t hold it’s adjustment well at all and it seems to be about an inch short to fit well. If the mike can be tightened easily, could I get some help in doing so–Thanks

    Awesome Best Headset in it class

    I was looking at David Clark and a few others. My ebay Flightline Head Set serverd me well for the $50.00 I paid for it. Alas it started to short out. I started looking and came across the website. I read the review but waited skeptically asking other student and instructors if they had heard of Faro, no one had. I finally bit the bullet a spend the money, primarily based on the review. I figured if they were faked, I could just return them. I was suspicious because the reviews were so good for a product priced significantly less than other in the same class. I was amazed, lighter and more comfortable than the David Clark I had borrowed a few times, but the sound quality and noise cancellation were much better too. I extremely pleased with the product. If you need a headset this is a great value for your dollar. BTW I have a fat head, but they adjusted perfectly.

  140. Pam

    Great headset

    Great headset. Been using in the flight school and getting many raving reviews on them. 2 students have purchased them after trying….helps cut down the helicopter noise!!

  141. B17 AV8R

    Great Headset

    Fits perfect, added cotton socks to them to keep my ears from sweating & it made them more comfortable. My buddies have DC headsets, but really envy mine.

  142. Gaël


    Nice headset, i’m very satisfied it works great!!!

    Greetings from France. 😉

  143. Boan

    Great headset, great price.

    I was a little nervous when looking into the FARO headset because of the price (too good to be true, right?). One of my friends had one, though, and I asked him how he liked it and he said it worked great. I don’t have a ton of money to spend, because I’m already attending a pretty pricy flight school, so I decided to go for it. I really haven’t had any regrets in the six months I’ve had it. My one issue with the headset is the ear pieces. I have pretty sensitive ears, so even normal earbuds tend to hurt my ears, and the FARO headset wasn’t any different. The other thing was the gel packs for comfort kept coming off. Not a big deal when you finally figure out the best way to put them back on, but the first time it took me 15-20 minutes to get them back on.

    Really, though, as far as quality goes, this headset is the way to go.

  144. toto

    Great Value

    Bought the headset for my son and he likes them. The sound is clear, both ways between pilot and co-pilot.
    The Quality is superb. However, after 30 minutes of using the headset it leaves pressure marks around the ears. It was the first time my son used it and I believe once he is using it several times the pressure of the ear cushions should reduce.

    Compared other headsets for pilots and they are unbelievable expensive with poor reviews. The Faro headset had the best reviews and the price is right!

  145. MichaelP337

    Lightweight and confortable

    I’m a pilot who had not flown in 24 years. The faro headset is amazing. I am flying a P337 Skymaster, an airplane known for being noisy. ATC is loud and clear! I’ll be buying another for my wife.

  146. Ycyukon


    Product is very good and working well, the two only thigs I can say that I am not to please with is the gel hear cushion are very easy to cum off and to be lost and the second is the jam nut to adjust the hear muff cum loose on it’s own and are very easy to crossthread. But overall I love mine. I had to order spare gel muff and they quite hard to install.

  147. CA

    Silicone Ear Gel detaches during flight.

    Silicone Ear Gel detaches during flight while adjusting headset. Had to continue flight and landed without an ear pad. Would like a replacement of ear gels or headset to get this fixed.

    — Please contact FARO customer service at 1-855-359-3276 for replacement.

  148. Jonathan

    Great headset. Very comfortable and better looking than the comparable David Clark.

    love the headset. But i can figure out what the switch on the cable is for. i do not notice any difference when i switch it from one setting to the other.

    — FARO: Thanks for your feedback. The switch is for Mono / Stereo – it depends on your aircraft avionics. Most planes will require Mono and if set to incorrect setting, usually hearing is lost in one side of the headset.

  149. Tim


    I had never heard of FARO but found that they work just as well as the David Clark headsets I had years ago. I could not resist getting two headsets for the price of one. This time it paid off. Thanks.

  150. Sam

    Great value

    I’ve had these 6 months and have been very happy. There is nothing comparable for the price and these are as good as any PNR set, even those that cost twice as much.

  151. ctywide

    Great headset for the price

    Great headset for the price

  152. EAD

    Good product

    Overall a good product at a good price, and a good looking headset.

  153. RWJRocker

    Great value to price ratio! Received compliments from instructors as a good deal. USed them to complete my private pilot license in 2013!

    My FARO pilots headset purchase was important because I needed a cost effective, yet high quality headset that would last throughout my private pilot training. At $189 I got more than what I paid for and even my instructors though it was a good value to price ratio for other headsets they had purchased.

  154. Skymac

    Great value

    I love these for the price.

  155. Brandon Richmond

    Headset to keep

    Faro may not be as fancy or have as many features as the Lightspeed and Bose, but for a descent price you get the best utilitarian headset available. Do I really need to hook up blue tooth to my headset? I can’t think of a scenario where that would be useful, its not like my phone works when we are airborne or is safe to use. This headset has easily met and exceed all my requirements as a pilot, I would recommend the Faro for any new pilots looking to maximize their investment.

  156. wmo

    top of the line

    the customer service was great, they answered all my questions and concerns since i was not familiar with this company. they new which cables to connect to my radio and what ptt switch i would need. other places i called did not provide this information.

    the headset is very well made and very comfortable. since i fly in the open air, noise is usually a problem especially when transmitting and air is blowing into the mouthpiece. i solved that with a leather cover on the front side which solved the problem.
    i am very satisfied with this unit and i would recommend it over other high priced units, thanks. wmo

  157. Flying Solo

    Great product

    I like the fit and the weight. Noise reduction is also good. Good product so far

  158. Nicholas


    Before I purchased the G2 headset, I had used headsets by David Clark and ASA. The quality (construction) of the G2 was surprisingly good!
    The microphone in communication is extremely clear, and the boom is tight yet flexible, It’s also comfortable to wear. This is a great student pilot / Private pilot headset for under $200! The best part about the G2 headset is the company behind it, Faro Aviation, they offer outstanding service and you can’t beat that.


  159. Dr. Dialtone

    Great price and comfort

    This is my first headset ever purchased since I’m a student pilot. Love the comfort and affordability, but I noticed I needed to keep the mic almost at my lips in order to be heard by my instructor. Looking forward to using them for years to come.

  160. Kyle D.

    best haed set I have owned

    I hav eused it for two years and it works flawlessly

  161. FlyingRookieOK

    Excellent value! Definitely recommend this headset.

    As always I do what my wife calls, an “excessive amount” of research online prior to buying anything. These may not be as good as the $1000 set of Bose (I haven’t got to try them) but they perform very well and the ear pieces make them very comfortable. I have had absolutely no issues and would highly recommend these.

  162. Chris Brocato

    Great Product

    I have a set of red ones and they work great. The price is awsome.

    Amazing quality for the price.

    Very good with small quality issues

    I like the headset so far. It lives up to claims for comfort and was reasonably priced. Noise reduction is generally fine, and sound quality is good. No problems for me with the mike … it’s long enough and easily adjustable for bend and vertical positioning. The only real problem I had was the last flight, where the ear gels became unattached at some point. The didn’t actually fall off until I took the headset off, but I could imagine being in the air and trying to reattach them, and how that might be tricky.

    Great headset at this price point. I would definitely purchase these again.

    satisfied purchase!

    I bought the headsets not having any information from other pilots about this brand of headsets, so I was a little skeptical about that.
    But I use them regularly and I’m satisfied with this purchase. The sound is good, noise reduction is good, I really liked the option that you
    have in choosing different colors headsets. I would definitely recommend these headsets without a doubt.

    The only negative thing I could think of is that after a while the gel-pads do get a little tight and uncomfortable around your ears..
    they’re not the “softest” but just get you uncomfortable – Not pain

    Great headset and a low price.

    For the price, this was an excellent purchase. I can’t tell a lot of difference between these and some of the much more expensive brands.

    Great Buy

    The price was right and the quality of the product was a a little better than I was expecting. I am very pleased with the purchase of my G2 Headset.

    Good Product

    The comfort was better then the well worn headsets of my flight instructor. Only complaint is that you have to have the mic on your lips to get it to work. Overall I think a good product for the price.

    premium product

    everything is great about the headset.. just i dont like the production show on website. because i selected the red one looking from website. its a bright red but when the product comes to me its a matt red and i dont like it. website designers should use the exact colors of products when showing different colors of the headset.

    Nice headset

    I like them, I just wish the cables were easier to manage.

  173. Tyerby

    Very nice product

    Comfort was better than my old DC headset. The MP3 plug in is nice

    A very good headset, apparently well built, I could not be compared to a similar David Clark, but the sound quality is very good … the only criticism concerns the shipment, which would have merited an anti-shock in the box that arrived at my house, fortunately without crushing. I highly recommend this G2 headset, especially at this price …

  175. Lucious

    Great Headset

    Headset is really nice. I am glade I was able to find your web site before buying another headset of less quality and higher price. I am waiting for the colors to arrive and when they do I will be buying the noise cancellation headset.

    Thanks, yours truly

    nearly 100% score

    This headset is all around great with an outstanding price. The only flaw with this headset is that I can’t seem to adjust the volume on it. Does it just not come with volume control? It’s a bit too quiet for me.

    == Faro Team: Dear Steve, please find volume control on each ear cup. They can be individually assisted. If you still find your headset too quiet, please contact us at 1-855-FLYFARO

    Very Nice Product

    I Recently purchased a G2 headset. As a student pilot, I was not sure what to look for prior to the purchase. I took a gamble with the FARO G2, based on previous reviews. I love them. The first day out of the box, used them for 2 hrs. The noise cancellation,comfort and overall quality is very good. Thank you for a very nice product.

    Good set for the money

    I was buying it for a second set for my wife and it is very comfortable and works great as my passenger set. Good buy

  180. Chillysurfer

    Nice, would buy again

    I like these headsets and would order again. the only real suggestion I could make is that the ear pads keep coming off and are difficult to put back on; especially if you have the engine running and the Hobbs time is clicking.

    Nicely packaged. Rapid Shipment and as advertised. Nice product.

    quite impressed

    I’ve been flying with the loaner headsets at the local flying school, and I have to nearly yell in them to activate the intercom. The g2’s mic works so well, I had to move the mic away a little bit or it would pick up every little sound out of my mouth. I’ve only flown with them once so far but, they impressed me quite a bit. Not to mention they are half the price of a name branded one. The quality of sound out of the earphones were amazing also. It seems that they are tuned excellent for voice, so ATCs and other pilots are no problem to hear. The MP3 hookup is a neat feature, but it is not perfect. The speakers are tuned to voice, so any music is not good quality… I didn’t buy them for music anyhow.

    I’m not going to recommend them over a lightspeed or a Bose if you’ve got the money, but as a student spending all my extra income on flying, they are the way to go.


  183. Dave

    Very comfortable. Good quality and super price. I would highly recommend this one to anyone in the market.

    Use this about 4-5 hours per week. Needed no adjustment for comfort fit. For a passive system I don’t believe it can be beat.

  184. tom

    good for the money

    the headset is light, does not sqoosh you head and is quiet. glad i bought it.

  185. Bernard

    All I can say is I can hear all the conversation clearly. The other headset…….

    All I can say is I can hear all the conversation clearly. The other headset i use before was not as clear maybe because of a lot of noise in the background. I will be using this for my entire training. I will post more review for update in the future. Thx. FARO

    Great first set or extras to have

    Great first headset.I looked at many different brands and this seemed comparable to ones that were double in price. Good audio quality and reliable. I was getting annoyed with the rental sets at the school.

  187. cateye144

    Great Headset. Fast shipment.. AA++

    Good headset, it is pretty comfortable to wear, I had to adjust the height of the headset, that’s fairly easy to do with screws. I have used it in about a dozen cross country flights and didn’t come across any issues. MP3 input is nice especially in areas where you are not dealing with too much ATC. I wish a flight bag came with the headset, other than that, it is a very descent headset.

    Very pleased with Faro headset!

    I just got my private pilot license, and was looking to purchase two inexpensive headsets, one for myself and one for a passenger. I got the Faro, and a Sigtronics S20. The passenger will be using the Sigtronics, because the Faro beats it hands down! Much better quality, comfort and sound. It was a great deal. I even found a coupon code online for 15% off. Get a Faro, you wont be dissapointed! Happy Flying!

    My only negative would be that the ear cushions come off easily and are difficult to put back on. I put several rubber bands around them to help keep them in place.

  190. Avi8ta

    Great product

    These headsets are a great bit of gear, mic pickup could be a little better but saying that, its better than alot of others I have used. They are very comfortable, quiet, and radio communication is clear I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these headsets to anyone else. Fantastic product, fantastic price, great customer service. Well done FARO!

  191. Rajendra Gahlawat

    Good product if you are tight on budget

    I will recommend this to anybody who is tight on budget and don’t want noise cancellation. If you can spend a bit more go for G2 ANR, or save for G2 ANR if you can. Noise cancellation makes some difference for good. I’ve both G2 PNR and G2 ANR and I’ll always use ANR over PNR.
