Sennheiser is at EBACE (stand 1196) showcasing the state-of-the-art technology in the HME 26 -the successor to the successful HME25 pilot's headset.

The sets guarantee reliable voice transmission in the cockpits of jets and propeller aircraft.

The lightweight headset features outstanding wearing comfort, extra-soft ear pads and  patented automatically adjusting two-piece headband, which ensures a perfect fit even on long flights. The new pilot's headset in a closed design is also available with NoiseGard technology.

Reliable voice transmission in enhanced quality is guaranteed by a noise-compensating condenser microphone. Its adjustable sensitivity allows it to optimally compensate for differences in the volume of voices and ambient noise. The headphones also provide hearing protection.

Sennheiser's NoiseGard technology actively reduces low-frequency continuous noise by up to 25dB. "To ensure that pilots can still benefit from this comfort feature when they speak to their co-pilots or the flightcrew without intercom, the HMEC 26 is also available as a version with a talk-through function," says director David Dunlap.

"At the push of a button, two microphones fitted to the headphones filter out the voices from the ambient noise and transmit their sound to the ears.As a result, pilots hear only what that want to hear," he adds.
