chopper_guy Posted May 30, 2006 Author Report Share Posted May 30, 2006 Headsets incorporated in Hartford Conn, does work and sells parts for Gentex, Ebay works well also.and there is one place in the US for Alphas,on the east cost Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this discussion. I got a lot of good information from here and from other sources. From many sources I learned that the Alphas don't seem to be very well built, and the Gallets, while apparently a quality helmet are quite expensive, certainly more then I can justify at this period in my career. I also had 1 comment that they were noisy although this was from a guy who had previously used dynamic noise cancelling. It looks like maybe Gentexes may be purchasable from Flight Suits now but I have decided to refurbish mu HGU-55 with new "super comfort liner", new comfort seal ear pads, new edge roll a new paint job, and a new single visor and lens. This could run within a couple hundred dollars of a new HGU-55, without the avionics package, so when they call with an estimate for the refurbishing, I will see what the cost of a new one with my desired capeabilities will run with my old, previously renewed harness installed. Thanks again to everyone who contributed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
