Oregon Aero® Aviation Headset and Helmet Upgrade Kits Make Flying What It Should Be: Pain-Free and Quiet

Face it: You fly for enjoyment, and eliminating pain and noise makes for a much more pleasant flying experience.

Oregon Aero, Inc. has understood that since its beginning and continues to manufacture products that bring comfort and improve safety -- like Aviation Headset and Helmet Upgrade Kits that transform existing equipment into pain-free, quieter flying. The Upgrade Kits eliminate pain, reduce overall sound pressure, improve intelligibility and transmission clarity, and keep ears drier and cooler. Plus, an upgrade is less costly than purchasing a new headset or helmet.

Oregon Aero engineered the Aviation Headset and Helmet Upgrade Kits piece-by-piece for maximum comfort and quiet, identifying factors that cause pain and noise. Users experience best results by installing all Kit components. Headset Upgrade Kits are custom-designed for more than 150 civilian, military, law enforcement, first responder and other headsets.

Aviation Helmet Upgrade Kits can be used for helmet types such as HGU, SPH®, CGF, MSA, IHADSS, CGF and Alpha.

SoftTop® 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.
