It comes with full Bluetooth® connectivity that enables phone calls as well as stereo music. The additional AUX Input expands the connectivity options to Non-Bluetooth devices. The selectable audio priority enables the pilot to set his or her communication options as desired.

The integrated map light LEDs are positioned at the end of the ear cups. The AV100 comes with a 6-pin (LEMO) plug and an adapter cable to dual (GA) plugs. A premium carrying case, batteries and a spare microphone windscreen are included in the package.

Aimed at professional and private general aviation pilots, the AV100 was developed in collaboration with pilot Hannes Arch, a member of the Red Bull Air Race Team and Red Bull Air Race World Series champion. AKG and Harmon International have a 60 year history of sound innovation - and their Aviation line incorporates all of that innovation!

The AKG AV100 employs AKG-developed active hybrid noise-cancelling technology and signal processing that is calibrated to attenuate the specific frequencies heard inside an airplane cockpit, creating a quiet listening environment, company officials explained. The AV100 also incorporates top-quality drivers and electronics to deliver clear, intelligible speech and music reproduction, officials add.

The headset has a built-in microphone and boom that can be used on either the left or right side. The windscreen is washable and replaceable.

It also has built-in LED map lights on each ear cup that provide illumination during night flights or added visibility in cockpits with dim lighting.

The headset has a 6-pin LEMO connector and a standard dual-pin airline adapter is included.

The AKG AV100 comes with a premium carry bag with enough spare space for sunglasses, navigation devices, a tablet device and more.

Good Headset, great price
  • This headset exceeded my expectations. I went from great Beyerdynamics HS400 to these ANRs and I love them. They are extremely comfortable, ANR is great (although I haven't tested them head to head with other models), the control pod is easy to use, auto-on/off function is especially useful, built-in map lights more handy than I thought. The carrying case is my go to flight bag.
  • Pros: ComfortableGreat ANRGood priceBuilt in lights
  • Cons: Cable is quite long and doesn't feel very rugged (have had no problems with it though)

AKG AV100 Headset
  • After spending a week as Sun N Fun and trying pretty much every headset on display, my wife selected the AKG AV100 to use in our RV6 and RV10. Although opinions will always be subjective, she felt the AKG was the most comfortable (lightest, low clamping pressure) and most effective headset of the bunch. Probably the most significant feature for her is the inclusion of an audio plug in addition to bluetooth connectivity.
  • Pros: Light weight, comfort, effectiveness, connectivity
  • Cons: None
Ratings:
Beautifully dumb design...
  • The Good
    - Build quality is awesome, they look beautiful, even the bag materials are magical
    - Noise reduction is fantastic, easily above par
    - Sound reproduction is fantastic, though missing some low end
    - When connecting to Bluetooth devices, the status is spoken to you versus just beeps
    - The built in lights are AWESOME!
    - Did I mention they are gorgeous, AND... beautiful?

    The Dumb
    - No button to activate the voice recognition of your Bluetooth device
    - Does not work with manually triggered voice recognition (example you can't say "call [name]")
    - Experienced audio stuttering when playing music from Bluetooth devices
    - Missing low end on the sound reproduction (Bose QC15 have better low end as an example)
    - The boom mic is all flexible cable so it does not "flip" up easily, the rotating base never rotates
    - The length of cable to the control box is way too long (unless you are 8 foot tall)
    - The boom mic is way too long

    I'm returning these and sticking with my Sennheiser S1's. Do not buy these looking for amazing Bluetooth integration. Engineer Johnny clearly was not thinking correctly when designing the Bluetooth part of these headsets (in my opinion he should fired for what he DIDN'T do.) Do by these if you want an amazingly beautiful headset, with a sweet built in light and with outstanding active noise reduction, and you secretly want to be like Hannes Arch and fly his Red Bull plane.

Excellent Headset
  • OK, I bought these with the full intention of sending them back. I just wanted to reassure myself that the Bose A20's I fly with were still the best on the market. Well, I have to say after flying with AKG's, I ma not sending them back. What I like the most is the streaming music feature and the comfort on the crown of my head. My Bose tend to pinch the top of my head on a longer cross country. Music Fidelity is unreal.

I shopped to find the best and so far loving them!
  • I spent a considerable amount of time shopping for a new headset. I wanted to make sure I made the right investment. I was attracted to the AKG for a couple of reasons. I remember Harman from my hifi days and know they make a quality product. I wanted bluetooth music and was confident that Harman would make it sound good. Of course, comfort is the number one issue and after trying these on at an AOPA show I felt that they would be comfortable. The real test came after the first long flight where i can tell you I had no ear pain or pain on the top of my head. I am thrilled with the sound quality, it is unbelievable. The noise canceling is very good, similar or better than the Bose I have flown with in the past and blows Lightspeed out of the water! The built in lights are very cool, I am yet to have made a night flight with them but I have wowed by passengers with them. Glad these come with the 6 pin dash power since i had this put into my plane a few years ago. It is also convenient to have the GA plugs in case I take the headset into a friends plane. Overall I would say AKG thought of everything in this headset. The only issue is now i am going to have to cough up another grand to get my wife a set!
Ratings:
Wow better than expected
  • I purchased these headsets because of two reasons the solid headband and the bluetooth music. I have been flying them in my saratoga and have been really impressed. The ear muffs are great, even with thick sun glasses stay put and sealed. The music quality is amazing (dont worry i do not turn it up to loud) and I have found a way to easily set the music at a nice level in the background without being distracting. Overall i would give them 5 stars.
