New Alpha Eagle Helmet Questions?

Recommended Posts

Looking at ordering new AE helmets.

Couple of questions though for those that already have them.


They ask for 1) plug impedance? 2) side connector / jack plug? 3) mic and boom? 4) microphone?


What do you guys recommend (or what works) in our Canadian aircraft. Will be using the helmets in Astars and mediums.


And what is the CEP kit?

As for the original posters question...in my experience most civilian systems are in the 300 ohm range, and a dynamic high impudence mic will usually work well for all...but you should check what most of the aircraft have within your company!!!!!!


And yes...CEP is a good choice to save your hearing....:)

If your going to be doing lots of slinging with the astar the AE may not be the best, doable but the bulky visor set up can rub the door more than you want. I have the CEP kit and hush liner in a Galet 050. Definitely worth the extra $250. My only suggestion with the CEP is to get the custom moulded earplugs ASAP after you get it in. My crushable tips are not nice on the ear canals. Costco can do a set for you for $100 give or take. If you go to a safety place that goes up to $300. Costco will drill out the hole so you can plug your mini speaker (which works in parallel with helmet) right into them. Other than that a helmet is a helmet. Saves your egg if you need it to. It's all about preference.
