I really like the Telex Stratus active noise cancelling headset. I am a little disappointed the ear cushions don't last very long before there is separation between the inside ear plastic and the softer material which lays against the ear. I live in Minnesota. I do not leave my headsets in the plane in winter. And I only fly about 80 hours/year. Just FYI. Telex should improve the longevity (quality) of the ear cushions, or reduce the price!
Pros: I like the Telex Stratus headset.
Cons: Ear cushions should last a lot longer.

Telex Thick Foam Ear Cushions (Pair)
The thin plastic cover over the foam on the ear pads on my Telex headset developed cracks. The pads were still serviceable but I wanted to replace them. This plastic cover seems to be the Achilles heel in the ear pads. I didn't use this headset often; it seemed more like an aging crack. This is nothing negative about Marv - he just sells what Telex manufactures.
I would buy them again because only Telex manufactures the replacement parts. BTW, only "soft" parts are available in the aftermarket. If the hardware breaks you have to send the headset back to Telex (or maybe take to your local avionics shop).
Pros: The pads were easy to install in about five minutes.
Cons: I think Telex is shortchanging us on quality and overcharging on price.
