ZeroPoint Aviation Z-1 Headset Flight Test & Review – Affordable Pilot Headset

In this video I introduce you to the ZeroPoint Aviation Z-1 aviation headset.

Let me begin by quoting ZeroPoint Aviation’s own description. “The Z-1 Headset provides affordability with the best available features, ideal comfort and noise reduction with ultra-soft gel ear seals, crystal clear sound with built-in dual driver technology, and exceptional durability backed by our lifetime warranty”.

This headset is definitely affordable when you compare the price against the market leaders but there is only one way to test the features and quality and that’s to go flying and using them.

So a few days ago I met up with PPL holder Mike  outside a small hangar at Solent Airport.

Right away, Mike pre-flighted our aircraft for the test, G-COVZ, a 45 year old Cessna 150 and christened ‘Covid Zulu’ for the day!

With pre-flight checks complete Mike and I unpacked our headsets, strapped in and then plugged in.

The Z-1s have a sturdy build quality and after a few minor adjustments they were comfortably in place.

There is a AUX port and they ship with a spare AUX cable – ideal for passengers and pilots alike who want to plug in that all important music.

Right from the start we were struck by quality. Mike mentioned that the microphone in particular was very clear. “They seem to have got the frequency just right,” he remarked.

Another great feature is the independent volume control for each ear.

While we were parked at the hold for runway 05 Mike swapped out his Z-1 headset and tested his David Clark’s, then returned to the Z-1. Apart from perhaps a little extra noise cancelling from the David Clark headset account of a tighter grip, there was no difference.

We took off and turned south to fly in the airspace south of the airport, over the Solent, just to the north of the Isle of Wight.

Transmission and reception were very clear. We had no trouble understanding each other or the messages to and from the Tower and from other aircraft in the vicinity.

Our experience in this flight test bears out the testimonials on the ZeroPoint Aviation website.

Visit and check them out for yourself. The Z-1 headset is an ideal choice for both student pilots and qualified PPL holders. Great quality at a very affordable price.
