Oregon Aero to Offer $23 Off Headset Upgrade Kits at SnF

Oregon Aero has announced that it will discount its Aviation Headset and Helmet Upgrade kits by $23 as show special during Sun 'n Fun next week. According to the company, the kit components are:

SoftTop (A). Headset Cushion (headsets only): Eliminates top-of-head pressure.
100% plush sheepskin wool. Keeps head cool or warm. Moisture-proof, self-wicking.
Flexible leather backing.

SoftSeal (B). Ear Cushions (headsets and helmets): Cushions eliminate pressure on
ears. Conform to the head for total comfort. Smooth, soft synthetic leather cover over
temperature- and pressure-sensitive foam core. Great with eyewear.

SoftSkin. Ear Seal Covers (headsets and helmets): Slip over SoftSeal Ear
Cushions to keep ears drier and cooler. Self-wicking reduces perspiration buildup.

HushKit (D). Passive Ear Cup Noise Attenuation Kit (headsets and helmets):  For
non-ANR headsets. Dramatically improves noise attenuation and intelligibility. Four die-
cut visco-elastic foam layers fill all ear cup voids. Turn down your radio volume!
SoftSeal/HushKit Combo (helmets only): An ear seal and insulation kit in one.
Replaces leather ear pad or upgrades plastic ear cup. Eliminates pain. Reduces helmet
weight.

MicMuff (E). Microphone Cover (headsets and helmets): Eliminates ambient cockpit
noise and noise from radios and intercom. Enables a noise-cancelling mic to do its job
above 97dB. Must be used on all headsets installed in the communications system to be
most effective. Soft leatherette cover over foam sleeve creates chamber around mic.
