Very Good! BlueTooth module works great and doesn’t cut out when ATC talks, just like my Bose A20! #TwoThumbsUp
Mic worked perfect
Very good. Mic worked perfect
Excellent costumer service
Brilliant idea excited brilliantly
Great value, good performance, with some compromises.
I have tried pretty much every headset setup out available, for use on an Airbus in an airline environment. I am currently using a “Pro” ANC headset that sells for around $800, and although I do not commute, I do occasionally deadhead. My current “Pro” headset does not lend itself to use on a deadhead, at least not very well. I had high hopes that the Nomad would fit bill for dual purpose (flight deck/cabin) use, but the compromises proved to be great for me to leave my current headset. While the performance of the Nomad exceeds the “Pro” headset in some areas, it falls short in others. Where the Nomad wins, IMHO, is 1) comfort 2) sound quality (attributable to the QC35 I use the Nomad with) and 3) cost ($600 for Nomad+headset vs $800). The downsides for me at least, were 1) The mic was picked up/introduced quite a bit of noise when I had a hot mic. The other pilot did not hear it, just me. And oddly, if I plugged in an external audio source, the background noise lessened (did not go away entirely). This was a deal killer for me, as I use ANC for a reason, and do not want to replace slipstream noise with electronic hiss. I fly with other pilots that use and love the Nomad, so this obviously is a personal thing. I also found that mic placement was very critical. If it was not it just the right place the other pilot could not hear me very well, and I also got my very first “last transmission unreadable” from ATC for the same reason. In the Nomad’s defense, the mic stays where you put it, you just have to get it in the right place, and this seems to be a fairly small area. 2) Dealing with the cords and microphone. My existing headset has a single cord, the mic is attached to the headset, and it all fits into a relatively small travel pouch. While it is trivial, I did find that attaching and plugging in the Nomad to the QC35, and storing it at the end of the flight bothersome. Just that much more to do before getting on my way. If I was a commuter who relied on my headset for the commute I wouldn’t be as bothered, but dealing with the on/off cord and mic, and storage was another downside vs my current setup. 3) My current headset has built in bluetooth, no need to use an auxiliary cord or bluetooth dongle. Again, less hassle in day to day use. To summarize, although the headset did not work out for me, it is an impressive product. The build quality seems to be solid. If you doubt the “dual lock” mic attachment, I would suggest you try it. It is very solid. The mic noise I experienced may bother you, or may not. As I said, many people that I work with have this setup and love it, it just wasn’t for me...
I don’t buy the myth that the A320 is quiet. Especially down at low altitude. Combining the NFlightMic with my Bose QC35 has been a game changer. The customer service is fantastic too. I had a minor issue with my unit and it was very quickly replaced!
