Hi guys,

Due to the pandemic and the possibility of no longer been able to use club headsets for when you bring a passenger along Im looking to buy a headset either new or used. Looking to spend about £100. Looked on ebay and not really seeing any I fancy unless you can point me in the right direction of a good one!

I use a SEHT 30-10 as a spare passenger set, alongside a H20-10. Cheap and cheerful at £100 new. Better than the standard Pooley's that flight schools use, and it's not too much worse than my (usually) £400 DCs.

David Clark H10-13.4 Headset would be my recommendation, but I don't think you will find any on eBay going as low as £100, but you never know.

If you wont to go a bit higher on on price, I have a Telex ANR set going for £180 more here https://baseleg.co.uk/listing/index/telex-anr-headset-vs400egj2x82a

Keep an eye on the less obvious sources as well. I was lucky enough to pick up some DC 13.4s in excellent condition apart from one split ear seal for £60 off Gumtree of all places a few years ago. New gel ear seals and a new mic sock = good as new.

I also recommend the David Clark H10-13.4 headset, they are the best that I have used so far.

SEHT and HM both do very good budget headsets around that price.

I was surprised how much SEHTs top of the range headsets cost (£700). It looks nice but that’s a high price for a budget brand.

I just bought an excellent condition Bose X set for £350 which i think represents a bargain.

I could do with one or two more “back seat” sets that are “nice” like the Bose. I find the budget sets a bit too industrial and head clamping.

We saw the new DC model with Bose alike looks and it is very nice indeed.

Based on the prices I see new, I reckon I will keep watching eBay.
