    Default ANR headsets

    Hi Guys, I need help. I have a standard executive panel in my EX #41 with a Garmin SL40 radio and PM 1200 intercom.
    I have set the SL40 to the specified settings then altered it to Mic setting from 125 to 35 and side-tone to 000 as advised on the forum. I have a pair of Lightspeed Zulu ANR headsets which are completely useless, volume and readability a 3/5 at best, and intercom is a bass mumble. I have now tried a pair of DC H10-13 and they are brilliant, 5/5 volume and readability and intercom is as clear as a bell. However they are noisy after you're used to the ANR quiet.
    Now I know that a lot of you Cub drivers are using Lightspeed Zulu's, and I believe Randy promotes their use and I used them when I flew the demo at Yakima, so I know they work. What am I doing wrong ?
    I await your sage advice.

    Hi Bruce: I had a terrible time with the com when I started. I fly an ex #17 with Bose ANR headsets. One of the biggest improvements came from installing the winter sealing kit which drastically reduced wind noise in the cockpit. Post install everything works well though I too reset the sidetone. I also use the leather mike muff covers. I did not realize the level of havoc draft in the cockpit was playing with the mikes in the headset. Hope it helps.

    Wondering if any one has any experience with the David Clark Pro X NR headphones in a Cub? Effective? Issues? Sorry about the thread drift.
