A new noise-cancelling headset introduced in April at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, is set to find a market in business and private aviation.

Middletown, R.I.-based Avid claims the headset “effectively reduces environmental external noise by 85 percent with a 20-decibel maximum noise attenuation.” Forty-millimeter speakers, said an Avid spokeswoman, “ensure crisp, clear sound and well defined bass.”

Gel padding in the full-size ear cups provides comfort, and the padded, adjustable headband affords additional comfort.

The flat-black headset comes with a zippered hard carrying case, a dual-plug adaptor and two AAA batteries. It weighs 7 ounces, including the connecting wire and batteries.
