My only problem with the Clarity’s is that the actual “speaker” unit is at the ear, where the ones on the band, with a tube running to the ear. If you damage the tube, it is easy to replace. Damage the cable on the Clarity, and it goes back to the factory.

Of course, it all eventually comes down to what fits best, and is most comfortable for the individual.

Do you find cable management to be an issue?
It’s never been a problem, so long as you use the lapel clip to keep some slack between your head and body.

Thanks, I've had to send some back because of this; I'll probably try the CQ1s on the 10 when I get to that point.

I currently have way too much slack between my head and body! I Don't understand what this has to do with headset though.

Mel, you dont have enough distance between your head and body to have any slack....

I'm still a happy user after nearly two years of use. Best headset I've ever owned and I've had a fair number, including the latest noise cancelling units.

Thanks Paul for the kind words. We can't make 100% of everyone that happy, but we try darn hard each and every day. I suspect that we're doing this headset a bit different than others in that its production is not static. We haven't stamped out thousands of them at once for the express purpose to not be locked into something that could be better. I iterate the details of design and production (tooling) all the time. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise as that is part of how we got here. There are a lot of them out there. Yesterday I put a new mic windscreen on one for a friend from almost three years ago. It sure looked like a unicorn to me that flies a few times per week.

Default Music quality

I do a lot of cx country and enjoy listening to music along the way. How's the quality when you have the music source plugged into the volume control? Will it interrupt the music for incoming communications?

Default Music

Ok that depends on your panel and your audio panel if you have one. I listen to music very often and if ATC calls it cuts the music. I have the option of it doing the same thing with a pax or not. It is not Bluetooth. The beauty of this headset, again I am a sample of 1 or 2 since I own 2 of them, is its simplicity, comfort, and ease of use. Yes the music sounds good but if you are expecting to sound like you are in a sound theater, not going to happen. ATC has a way of cutting in... But for non radio conducting flights the music is very good based on the source. I sure would give them a shot first and then let's us know your thoughts. I need more of a sample than just me!
