Well, my set just arrived. First impressions are good. The headset (not inc the breakout box) tips the scales at under 320g, so significantly lighter than the non-carbon older designs. It's comfortable too, but I won't know much more until I go flying on Monday.

I'm not best place to do a credible review as I am only 6 hours into my PPL, but my instructor is interested in getting a set to replace his sennheisers and we should be able to directly compare them to the passive David Clarke set I've been using until now.

There's a test of the non-ANR SH40-10 in the Summer 2018 issue of FLYER - I thought the use of carbon fibre might be more visual benefit than a significant weight saving, but it's definitely worth it. The build quality is impressive too.

The carbon headset chassis with SEHT's ANR tech (that we trialled with the SH30-75 a year ago) probably makes for a good combo. I'll try and get one to test.
