Aviation Headsets

To hear and respond to the control tower, you'll need a headset, which has the added benefit of stopping you from going deaf from the roar of the plane. Schools often lend them to students. If you want to buy one, a high-end headset such as the Sennheiser S1 Digital headset from Sporty', which offers noise cancellation, runs about $1,100. Or you could opt for the less sophisticated David Clark H10 headset for $290.
