Napier Active Noise Reduction Headset.


Recommended Posts


I have just dug out my Napier 'Active noise reduction' headset from my shooting days in the ARMY.

I have charged them up, and they seem to be working VERY well when I clap, and so on...

Tomorrow I will run up the motor.

Not sure how much they cost or anything as I have had them for years, but could be cool for a quick flight if no comms are wanted/required.

They actually amplify normal voice. allowing 'whispers'to be heard well.

I use Peltor Tactical's for my shooting, only downside is when you are in a conversation during a heavy spell of gunfire it blanks out a lot of the conversation. Not bad for around 50 quid :) but remember all these types of muffs just block loud noises they arent noise-cancelling headphones which is what you want for paramotor comms.

I dunno?

I recon that if you can have a set of ear defenders that amplify quite noises like the wind, people in the distance, and such and then drown out the motor to a safe level. Why not perfect for PPG?

No comms agreed, but I love to fly with no comms. It's a part of the sport for me.

Found a picture..... (the description with this unit mentions 200 hours of batt life, I am not sure of they are identical but my set are rechargable, from a 12 V source. I think in all the years I have had them, I have just charged them for the first time.

I also found out that they are still standard issue for the British ARMY so have to be half decent. (waiting for whitty comments about that bit :lol: )
