Default Lightspeed delta zulu headset

Two questions:
For those of you that have used this headset, how do you like it?

And it appears there is no hook to attach the control case. Does anyone have a workaround or perhaps a 3D printed holder?

I like it, but I canít tell much, if any, difference between it and the Zulu 3. I use both still.

Their site says if they don't have one for your headset, they will make one for free if you send them your gear to use make a template from.

ANR-wise it's updated and improved - but that might be a relatively subtle change to most people. The main differences between Zulu 3 and Delta Zulu are in the areas of flight safety, ability to compensate for hearing loss, and power sources:
  • Carbon monoxide detection and audio alerts built-in, always on and working wherever you use the headset.
  • If you haven't already, be sure to use the iOS app and do the "Hearing EQity" setup to customize it for your individual hearing. If you have any hearing loss, this feature may make a real difference.
  • Comes with both lithium-ion (rechargeable) and AA battery cartridges.

And, some people may not realize it can be ordered configured with Dual-GA plugs, or with a LEMO panel-power plug. I just looked and we have a limited supply of both models in stock right now (as of when I am posting this), it appears.

Just thought I'd throw in a pic of Greg H. enjoying his Delta Zulu headset.

I didn't know people are actually charging a queens ransom for poorly printed 3d parts these days. I've made a set of holders for my Lightspeed PFX's. Most likely a different design than the Delta Zulu but it wouldn't take long to whip something up if you need a mounting solution.
