Lightspeed Celebrates One Year Anniversary of Delta Zulu Headset

Thriving in the Business of Saving Lives

September 2024 marks the one-year anniversary of the debut of Lightspeed Aviation’s flagship safety headset, the Lightspeed Delta Zulu. Since September 2022, upwards of ten-thousand pilots have benefited from the forward-thinking safety features engineered into Lightspeed’s premium Active Noise Reduction (ANR) headset.

Lightspeed founder and CEO Allan Schrader stated: “In 2019, we shifted our corporate vision to creating products that protect and save lives. Our mission is to improve flying safety for every pilot, co-pilot, and their passengers...”

The paramountcy of a pilot’s headset to the safety and enjoyment of flight cannot be overstated. It is the helm of his panoply, the instrument of his radiotelephony, and—thanks to the people at Lightspeed—the ever-vigilant guardian by which his life is defended from the exigencies inherent exposure to carbon-monoxide.

The Delta Zulu headset’s sleek lines, two-tone ear-cups, and braided connecting cord speak at once to style, durability, and practicality. The implement’s  exterior houses state-of-the-art ANR, audio-augmentation, Bluetooth, digital recording, and carbon-monoxide-monitoring/warning technologies are collectively indicative of Lightspeed’s dedication to the highest standards of quality, value-for-money, and aeromedical safety.

Utilized in conjunction with the Lightspeed smartphone app, the Delta Zulu headset customizes incoming audio to a pilot’s unique hearing profile—equalizing discrete frequencies to compensate for varying degrees of hearing-loss. In addition to enhancing the auditory acuity of its wearer, the Lightspeed app serves as the user interface for a cockpit voice recorder feature that facilitates the capture, instantaneous playback, and saved retrieval of all radio and intercom-based flight communications.

While the Delta Zulu headset may be used independently of the Lightspeed app, the latter unlocks capabilities conducive to the expansion of flying freedom and the betterment of aviation safety.

By dint of sensors built into its ear-cups, the Delta Zulu headset detects cockpit carbon-monoxide levels and alerts wearers of such by means of audible alerts sounded by the headset’s speakers—no app required. Integration of the Lightspeed app, however, allows aviators to monitor and track levels of CO in their aircraft.

Another safety feature of the Delta Zulu headset is Lightspeed’s HearingEQity, a built-in hearing loss compensation system that creates personalized hearing profiles for clearer cockpit communications. For many pilots, the HearingEQity system has eliminated the need to pair their headsets with hearing aids; for other aviators, the system dramatically clarifies ATC communications, thereby boosting confidence during flight—instrument flight in particular.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of its Delta Zulu headset, Lightspeed is offering $100 off of the product’s retail price. The offer is good through 09 October 2023 and is available worldwide through all authorized Lightspeed dealers or directly from the Lightspeed website.
