Special Offer: Marv gives you an EXTRA set of Standard-Sized Comply Tips - FREE!
The Clarity Aloft Link Headset is the most feature-rich headset that Aloft Technologies makes! They took their unique and popular Clarity Aloft Headset and paired it with a special version of the Pilot USA Blulink Bluetooth Headset Adapter. They have specially tailored the Digital Signal Processing in the Blulink to the Clarity Aloft’s mic and electronics so you can wirelessly connect to multiple Bluetooth devices for phone calls, music, and more. This specially-tailored Digital Signal Processing gives it the clearest sound available today, and enables you to link 2 devices simultaneously.
The digital signal processing is so advanced in this unit that listeners will not be able to hear the engine roar in the background while the pilot communicates to either ATC or when notifying family and friends of an impending arrival.
All your favorite aspects of the original Clarity Aloft are still here and they’ve added great new features. The Link lets you wirelessly connect your phone and any Bluetooth enabled media device simultaneously and here’s just a sampling of what you can do:
- Bring your most used tool into the cockpit – your phone can be as indispensible in the air as it is on the ground.
- Enjoy music and movies on your iPod or iPad – clear and powerful sound will have you experiencing them like you never could in an airplane before.
- Connect to more than one device - you don't have to choose between your phone and your other devices, giving you the best functionality.
- Seamlessly transition from music to a call – the optional autofade will bring down the volume when calls from the radio or phone come in.
- Independently adjust the volume - dual controls allow you to set your cockpit radio volume and the volume from your phone and devices separately at exactly your preferred level.
- Connect with just the sound of your voice - use your smartphone’s voice-activated dialing feature to let loved ones know when you’ll be landing.
- Wireless Bluetooth Pairing
The BluLink unit pairs both a mobile phone and any other Bluetooth equipped media device simultaneously. Once paired, the BluLink unit finds the device or devices anytime they are within range and have their Bluetooth functions on.
- Digital Signal Processing
The BluLink digital signal processing (DSP) has been specifically tailored to the microphone of the headset, giving it crystal clear sound in the most demanding aviation environments. Phone calls sound just as good as if not better than when you use your mobile phone in daily life.
- Intuitive Phone and Music Controls
Calls can be dialed, answered, placed on hold and ended easily on the BluLink. Volume controls for calls and music are very straightforward, as are the track controls. If you’ve used any modern music player before, you know how to operate the BluLink.
Each Clarity Aloft Link Headset comes with:
- Semi-rigid case with black ballistic nylon in a packable size.
- 6 month supply of Comply Canal™ Tips (6 pairs of Standard Size, 1 Pair of Slim, 1 Pair of Extra Large)!
- 30-day money back guarantee
- 3-year manufacturer's warranty
- 2 AA batteries
The Clarity Aloft headsets employ patented Comply™ Canal Tips, composed of soft viscoelastic foam, the same foam tips used in advanced hearing aids. More than simple earplugs, these foam tips provide full spectrum noise reduction: 35-45dB of attenuation. This advanced technology has been lab tested to prove that viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) is superior to active noise reduction (ANR), especially in the speech frequencies, precisely where clarity of sound and hearing protection is most needed for aviation communications.
Clarity Aloft Link Features and benefits:
- Built to be rugged with professional Flight Instructors and Aviation Professionals in mind
- Clarity of sound that is unsurpassed
- Lightweight, cool and comfortable
- Hygienic replaceable foam tips, compliant to each individual ear
- High quality components tested to military specifications
- Professional grade microphone
- Integrated, specially-tailored Pilot BluLink Bluetooth Adapter
The Clarity Aloft earpieces are used to improve both hearing protection and speech communications. Each earpiece includes a miniature speaker that reproduces speech signals from the aircraft audio system. The replaceable compliant foam tips (Comply™ Canal Tips) which attach to the earpiece contain a pathway for the sound to travel from the transducer to the ear. Used by the military for helicopter pilots, both components of the earpiece, the transducer and Comply Canal Tips, have been tested, used rigorously and meet the most exacting military standards.
Replaceable Foam Tips included
The superior seal is achieved with the patented Comply™ Canal Tips, which are used in high-end hearing aids. These viscoelastic foam tips provide the highest level of hearing protection available by any method including active noise reduction (ANR). The outstanding noise reduction (35-45dB) in the speech frequencies between 400 to 4,000 Hz results in unsurpassed clarity of voice communications. Resembling foam earplugs, the foam tips are so comfortable because they are compliant to the shape of the ear. Considerable sound science history backs up their impressive performance. Technical specifications on our viscoelastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) are included in the Owner’s Guide.
The Noise-Canceling Microphone
The noise-canceling microphone used in the Clarity Aloft Headset is a high fidelity noise canceling Electret Condenser microphone with performance optimized for speech frequencies in extremely high noise environments. Stage performers and musicians use this same microphone because they must insist on the highest level of sound reproduction.
Dual Electret Microphone
Mic Elements face 180 degrees apart: one faces forward, one faces the mouth. Sound that enters both elements is cancelled. Sound that enters the mouth side mic is amplified.
With its flexible boom arm, this featherweight band is the same one sported by stage musicians and professional performers the world over. Balance and comfort are the result of its elegantly simple design. The mic boom can be easily re-positioned for eating and drinking during flight without disturbing your earpieces.
