Anyone using these "in the ear" headsets?
They are cheap compared to ANR's and supposed to have just as good
or better protection

I have Clarity Aloft and love them on many levels.

No batteries and just as good noise reduction as ANR. Very, very light (but durable). I don't even notice them.

They come with replaceable foam tips that use standard hearing aid tips which last "forever". They advertise that the tips last about a month but I have yet to replace my first set after six months. You can simple remove the foam tip and wash them as suggested.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a Halo headset. It is the best headset I've ever owned as well as being by far the most comfortable. However (there's always a "however" in these responses), earlier this year the microphone failed and I sent it to Quiet Technologies for servicing (incidentally the folks at Quiet Technologies are great). Unfortunately the microphone still does not operate correctly, at least with my radio and intercom, and being unwilling to risk a failure in flight I have abandoned them.

I thought of buying another in-ear but decided to go with the Lightspeed Zulu. Great headset with a super feature set, but I miss my Halos.
