Light, comfortable, clear
I have used these headsets in a Cherokee Six a Cessna 182 and a Cessna . They are very clear in communication with ATC and with the intercom installed in the different aircraft that I was flying. The do not provide much passive noise cancellation but the active noise cancellation is very good. I was concerned that noisier piston aircraft would be too much for these headsets but they performed admirably.

There is some white noise generated when the active noise cancellation is functioning. It is only noticeable when there is no ambient noise that is louder than the white noise.

The Bluetooth feature works well and mutes the Bluetooth source when there is radio traffic. I have not tried making a phone call with the headsets but based on the Bluetooth experience I think that it would be easy to get a clearance by phone while on the ground.

Because of the light weight and on ear design the headset is very comfortable and does not feel as hot as my other headsets. I have not flown with them for extended periods of time but for the 1 - 2 hours flights I have taken they were very comfortable.

Excellent Sound Quality and Comfort
I tried these on a recent airline trip. They were a loaner from a friend. I found the headset to be very light and comfortable to wear, even after several hours. The audio quality was crisp and clear. I especially liked the on-ear fit versus the typical around the ear fit of most ANR headsets. Highly recommended. Note: I put the durability rating at 10 because this was a one-time trial. I didn't want the durability rating to drag down my overall rating of this headset model, but the number I assigned is not a true indicator of durability.
