Is this headset Noise Cancelling?
The RA620 headset has passive noise cancellation and will block out 24db of noise.
What powers the the headset’s circuitry? Are batteries needed?
The RA620 headset is powered by the aircraft's internal communication system. It does not required batteries.
Is the audio output mono or stereo?
The audio output on the RA620 headset is mono. Verbal communications have a higher sound quality using mono whereas music sound quality is better with stereo output.
Does this headset turn down the music when the plane's radio emits a signal?
The music function on the RA620 does not auto dim/mute when the radio emits a signal. The 3.5mm AUX port connects straight to the headset speakers and cannot determine when the radio is transmitting. Be sure to keep the radio volume higher than your music so you never miss an important message.
Does the AUX plug work as audio-out? Can you attach a recording device and have the audio feed from headset to recorder?
No, the AUX plug does not support audio out, it is only an input directly to the headset speakers. In order to record flight chatter you will need to determine if your aircraft's internal flight comms have an AUX out port. If this is not readily available, we recommend using the RRP2EX Portable Aviaiton Intercom.
Will this headset work...in a commercial aircraft jumpseat? In a helicopter? with a David Clark System? For In-car communications? As a computer gaming headset?
The RA620 headset was designed as a helicopter headset to be used with an aircraft’s internal communication system that accommodates a U174 single pin helicopter plug. Any aircraft that is compatible with a U174 plug will allow for optimal performance of this headset.
With slight modifications or cable adaptors, this headset can be used in a variety of scenarios but it is not recommended.
