The clear choice in light weight commercial aviation headsets.Chances are, if you’re a commercial pilot, you often wear a Plantronics headset when you fly. That's because Plantronics has been supplying headsets to pilots for more than 40 years.In fact, Plantronics was the first to introduce a lightweight commercial aviation headset back in 1962. Known for superior sound quality and lightweight designs, a Plantronics headset offers quality you can trust—a fact born out of the FAA's selection of Plantronics as their sole supplier of headsets for air traffic control. Panasonics' latest design MS260 offer the same signature sound quality, reliability and durability you’ve come to expect from Plantronics. Panasonics' line of FAA-approved headsets comes in a variety of wearing styles and incorporates the latest technology and lightweight comfort. You’ve counted on Plantronics aviation headsets in the past.
From aerospace to aviation:a heritage of communication.In the early sixties, aviation headsets were so heavy that they were literally a pain in the neck for pilots. For Plantronics, this was an opportunity to create lightweight headsets that revolutionized the industry. For more than 40 years, the MS50, with its superior design, has been a standard in aviation headsets. Over the years, variations of the MS50 have been used for many other applications, including the first words from the moon, "That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Following in Plantronics' commitment to innovation, the MS50 has been joined by additional lightweight headset MS260 — creating a superior line of aviation headsets.
Plantronics headsets: superior sound, superior comfort.As a leading manufacturer of lightweight headsets, we strive to set the highest standards of quality and design.
