Classic Aero-TV: Look Ma, No Wires! -- Mach5's Bluetooth Headset

Are You Ready To 'Unplug' In Flight???

Trapped! Have you ever gotten wrapped up in a headset cord... or left it plugged in while trying to exit an aircraft in a hurry (like trying to outrun some rain)? If that's the case, you know how much of a pain in the (deleted) headset cords can be. UNLESS, you try the latest generation of Bluetooth capable headsets and free yourself of the limitations of having to "plug in."

Enter the Mach5. This wireless headset is based upon technology from Audio-Technica. The company says the headset suppresses 90% of the external noise (compared to about 85% for most other noise canceling headsets), and is 'highly rated' for stereo music listening.

The Mach5 headset uses Bluetooth technology to enable reliable connectivity with a small, custom-built transceiver that plugs directly into the audio and microphone ports of the aircraft. This transceiver eliminates the cable, or bulky modifications to the comm system, turning any aircraft comm into a wireless system.

Mach5 notes that with ambient noise a concern for pilots and passengers alike, the Mach5 also provides several noise-canceling features. The removable boom mic only picks up the sound directly in front of it, where the pilot’s lips are.

The headset itself has active noise canceling that is based upon an external microphone on the ear cup that picks up surrounding noise and generates an offsetting noise-killing frequency. Additionally, the ear cups are larger than most. This adds an element of passive noise canceling by reducing any external sounds reaching your ears.
