BMW DesignworksUSA x Sennheiser   S1 Digital Aviation Headphone For Pilots

“Ladies & Gentlemen, This is your Captain speaking…” that familiar enchantment since the first days of aeronautical commute is about to undergo a sonic improvement thanks to BMW DesignworksUSA and Sennheiser. Introducing the S1 Digital, the first aviation headset for pilot of its kind. Exhibiting its engineering and industrial design prowess, BMW DesignworksUSA crafted a headset unit with optimal comfort in mind. Ear cups shaped in the forms of sweeping wings, the S1 Digital’s spring steel construct allows a bespoke fit and yet retain its form when not in usage. The dynamic design also ensures a lower contact pressure, below industry standards, thus reduce pilot fatigue. With a small sliding control on the headband, pilots can adjust the fit themselves. There is even a “glasses zone”, specific areas on the ear pads to correspond with the arms of sunglasses. Connected to a control unit, streamlined with LED graphics, volumes can be control separately for either right or left ear cup while NoiseGard actively cancel all background noise. There is even a Bluetooth connectivity option for cellphone or music player, though we recommended highly that no pilot use them during mid flight. After all, how frightening it would be to hear DMX’s Up In Here blasting on the plane’s intercom system…

Why on earth would you have a mic protruding from the inside of the cup so your ear rubs on it! ANR degrades greatly with glasses on, pressing the button helps but not a enough. No aux input cord so your stuck with battery draning blue tooth wihich you can only pair one device. I personaly don't think that the sound quality is that good, expected better from them! The cord is hard and wirery and knots up twists up easerly. Summary: Even for all the cons I did like them I guess they had to release the first edition with doggy stuff so we can spend another $$$$ in 12 months for S2, for something that should have been done in the first place!!! So much for BMW's input! I will be sending mine back for Lightspeed. I hope this helps.
