Telex Airman 8 ANR Headset

Product Description

The Telex Airman 8 ANR Headset is a lightweight noise-reducing headset designed specifically for optimizing pilot communications in commercial and business turbine aircraft. Building on the tradition of the Airman 850, the Airman 8 has improved durability, intelligibility, and comfort.

The Airman 8 is the lightest Active Noise Reduction headset on the market and the only FAA TSO C139a approved ANR headset to utilize Telex’s proprietary battery-free ANR system. Soft pliable ear cushions and headband pads combine with dual direction ear cup pivots to provide long flight wearing comfort.

Note: An active intercom or Hot Mic is needed to fully power the ANR on this headset.

Note: These are not designed for General Aviation / Propeller Aircraft. They are designed for the Commercial Aviation / Corporate Jet market.


  • Flexible boom-mounted, noise-reducing microphone, positionable for right- or left-side.
  • Lightweight, battery-free ANR with onboard fail-safe to ensure constant communication.
  • Soft, pliable ear cushions and headband pads.
  • Stainless steel headband and pivot points for superior durability.
  • FAA TSO C139a approved.


Sound Quality
The Airman 8 features a high-quality amplified electret microphone for clear voice transmission. Improved ANR and microphone noise cancellation ensures superior in-flight communication.

Active Noise Reduction

The Airman 8 headset features enhanced ANR (Active Noise Reduction) with even more noise reduction, helping to improve intelligibility and reduce fatigue. The position of the ANR switch has also moved to the forward-facing ear cup side, making it easier to reach the switch without having to remove the headset.

A unique feature of the Airman 8 is that it is powered from its microphone system, eliminating the need for batteries or special connectors.

A strong stainless steel headband with metal pivots improves durability for long headset life. The new microphone boom design provides stronger rotation stops, utilizing the full diameter of the ear cup. Furthermore, a pre-coiled overhead cord has been added to extend the useful life of the headset. The main headset cord is also more robust and features an improved design of the band relief on the ear cup entrance.

Comfort and Fit
The soft headband pad and lightweight design provides comfort, even on long flights. An added yoke provides enhanced comfort by allowing ear cup movement in all directions. Furthermore the Airman 8 comes with replaceable ear cup covers and leatherette ear cushions.

Safety Improvements
An acoustic limiter protects users against sudden increases in sound levels.

FAA TSO Approval
The Airman 8 headset is fully FAA TSO C-139a compliant.

ARINC Standards
The Airman 8 is fully compliant to ARINC (Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated) requirements.

Excellent choice
  • I love the new Telex airman 8, it works as advertised. Very light and comfortable .. makes a world of difference on long legs, and truly preserves hearing as one does have to turn the volume up anymore, ATC communications are crystal clear, and the intercom is also amazing. Best of all since i read on the manual that it doesn’t like heat so much and me being based in Dubai, I carry it with me to and from work .. you can’t feel the weight of the headset at all logging it around all the time.
  • Pros: Perfect for a jet aircraft in terms of noise cancelling, light weight, comfortable and reasonably priced.
  • Cons: it seem fragile, let’s see how long it will last.

Airman 8
  • The earpieces rotate any time you look down. The headband puts pressure on just two small points. It will give you a headache.
    The audio quality is as good as the 850.
    I am going back to my 850’s. They are lighter, more comfortable and both are the same audio quality.

    I was disappointed.

    MG Note: The initial production-run of Telex Airman 8 headsets had a manufacturing issue that allowed the earcups to rotate too freely. This has been fixed. All new Airman 8 headsets will not have this issue and should fit better and should no longer rotate off of the head.
  • Pros: Better than the 750
  • Cons: Uncomfortable
Occupation / Rating:
Excellent New Design
  • Very nice improvement. I loved the 850 and this is the next evolution. Very pleased.
  • Pros: Light weight, well made
  • Cons: none
