Beyerdynamic HS 800 Aviation Headset

Beyerdynamic, a German audio company, has introduced the HS 800 Digital, a new-class aviation headset using DANR (digital adaptive noise reduction), which the company claims combines feedback and feedforward ANR for the first time in a digital system.

According to beyerdynamic, system-related disadvantages in ANR headsets such as background noise and limited capacity have been eliminated in its DANR headset. Feedforward digital control now makes it possible to adapt to high-precision frequency peaks. Additionally, the HS 800 is cushioned with viscoelastic and soft leather, and protected with carbon fiber and anodized aluminum.

The HS 800 is available in three versions. The traditional version has two classic jack plugs; the Rotor version features a spiral cable and U-174/U jack for helicoptors; and the six-pin version has a Lemo connector that in addition to providing microphone and stereo headphones signal, provides the electrical system voltage that allows the headset to be used without batteries.
