I just wanted to pass along a very good experience with an aviation vendor. Over ten years ago I bought 2 ASA HS-1 headsets with a lifetime warranty. I have used them ever since. They are not fancy, but they have good passive noise reduction and are mono/stereo and have worked well. The ear covers were foam filled and had become stiff and uncomfortable and the outer insulation on the wiring was brittle and cracked, so I decided to check out their lifetime warranty to see what was covered. I emailed them my question and the same day I received a reply from customer service telling me to send them back and they would replace them.
I sent them back USPS priority mail and about ten days later I received 2 brand new headsets. They didn't repair my old ones, they sent the latest model that has replaced my original ones. No postage, no hassle. I am so impressed, I just had to pass the word along. If you have occasion to do business with them, I'm sure you will be happy with the products and service.
I love my HS-1! Great headset for the money. Very comfortable, good value for the new pilot or the seasoned one.

This is one of the toughest headsets around. In March 1997, the home my flight instructor, another flying student and I were living in was struck by a tornado. Luckily, none of us were home at the time. My ASA headset was later found on the ground a couple of blocks away—in the rain and missing an ear seal! In the meantime, I had already purchased a Telex 5000E headset to replace my ASA HS-1. But after replacing the HS-1's ear seals with gels, I found them more comfortable and better sounding than the Telex AND the David Clark I had recently borrowed. It's been 10 years since I went to the FBO and bought the cheapest headset I could find (my ASA HS-1). I never expected I'd still be using them today. I may never need another headset.

I needed a headset (after breaking my friends very expensive headset) for a ferry flight and came across these at Boeing Field. I used them for my flight from there through the Aleutian Islands and onto Japan. I found them very comfortable for the entire journey, including the ten and twelve hour legs. My friend thought I might find them heavy but I did not notice that at all. They sealed around my ears easily and I appreciated being able to adjust the volume with the knobs on the ear cups, so we both could have volumes we were comfortable with during the flight.
I see they have gel pads and am tempted to purchase them but the pads with them are so very nice I do not see the need even though I like gels.
One reason I was particularly motivated to purchase these is because they had the lifetime warranty. Although I have yet to utilize a warranty, the fact they offer one speaks volumes to me on their construction and the integrity of ASA.
They kept outside noises out, inside noises clear and the mic made my voice transmit clearly.
All-in-all I was/am pleasantly pleased with my purchase.
