Is this headset Noise Cancelling?
The RA950 headset has active noise cancellation (ANR) and will block out 39.5db of noise at 3000Hz.
What powers the the headset’s circuitry? Are batteries needed?
The RA950 requires two "AA" batteries. If the batteries become depleated, the headset will then revert to passive noise cancellation.
Is the audio output mono or stereo?
You can choose between mono or stereo output using the switch on the cord of the RA950. Verbal communications have a higher sound quality using mono whereas music sound quality is better with stereo output. If you are only hearing audio in one ear, change your audio output to match your aircraft's internal communication system output. The mono/stereo switch can be found in the battery box.
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 RA950 headset was designed as a general aviation headset to be used with an aircraft’s internal communication system that accommodates dual plugs (also known as PJ plugs). Any aircraft that is compatible with dual plugs 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.
