Telex Aviation has unveiled its new Ascend modular aviation headset.
The next generation Ascend features a new comfort-enhancing headband design and a unique modular design that enables the pilot to swap components for use in a variety of applications. A simple, tool-free procedure makes it easy to change connectors or battery types, with available modules including a TRS headphone connector, five-pin XLR connector, rechargeable battery and a replaceable battery.
This modular design also means repairs to the Ascend can be done quickly and easily in the field. In addition to its modularity, the Ascend design features include:
- Sound level limiting: Special consideration has been made to protect the hearing of Ascend users. Prolonged exposure to high sound levels can be harmful, so the Ascend automatically limits the speaker output to a safe range.
- Expanded frequency response: Full-bandwidth frequency response ensures the headset sounds great when used for dialogue or music.
- Noise reduction system: The Ascend’s advanced ANR system specifically targets common cockpit noises, such as wind across the windshield and ventilation and improves upon the active noise reduction in the popular Telex ANR 500 and 850 models and the passive noise reduction of the Airman 850.
- Fold-Flat swivel design: The Ascend’s unique chassis features pivoting earcups, ensuring a snug custom-fit for the user. The earcups pivot a full 180°, enabling the headset to fold flat for compact storage.
The Telex Ascend comes with a full three-year warranty. Pricing for the Ascend hasn’t been released as yet, but for more info click here.
