Default CQ1 Headset now available with LEMO style plug

The CQ1 is now available with a 6 pin LEMO style airframe cable.
It is still the same great passive headset that does not utilize or need ship power and still weighs only 3.7oz in total. You won't currently find this option with the competition.

I know this announcement doesn't mean much to most of us, but we've found it to be very important to some customers. Who am I to say no? We listen to every customer whether they are flying a J3 or a B777 and everything in between. The CQ1 is not a stagnant product, but is continually revised and improved in every detail. I see no end to that commitment.

I recently heard a comment from a CQ1 customer: "I feel like it's perfectly balanced out of the box. I don't have to yell in the cub or the RV10, yet it feels perfectly natural in the Challenger jet."

In the last 12 months alone, just a couple externally obvious improvements include a significant advancement in our production molding in the frame and a new mic windscreen that we worked almost a year on and are very proud of. We knew the change in the mic windscreen would be a significant improvement in many environments, and it is. It is made in the USA from formaldehyde free foam that is a perfect match for our tiny microphone element that has an exceptionally low moment for movement during rapid head movement or aerobatics. The updated foam windscreen uses a new internal retention method that actually improves its performance and is nearly impossible to lose in the cockpit.

We have shipped CQ Headsets all over the world to every kind of pilot that you can imagine. So we push forward into 2021 and can't wait to see our extended family at Oshkosh again this year.

Scott I just ordered a headset for my wife. Can I return it for one with a Lemo plug? I’m expecting good things from this headset. Im getting tired of the wife constantly messing with her halo. It should be here on Thursday. Order #1751.

Joe, you bet. We'll be in touch with how best to proceed.

Default LEMO CQ-1

Scott,

Just curious if there is an advantage to the LEMO plug vs standard G.A. plugs since the CQ-1 isnít powered anyway. Mainly for builders that only installed a LEMO jack in the airplane?

No technical advantage at all. Yeah, I've seen enough RVs that have been built with only LEMO jacks that needed this option.

The response to this addition indicates that the need is far greater than we even realized.

Cyrus,
We have a standard CQ1 with the mic on the left side, a model with the mic on the right side, and my favorite, a standard CQ1 in orange. Each are newly available with a LEMO style plug instead of the standard dual GA plugs. They all share the same components and design so will have the same audio characteristics.

The quality (and expense) of our critical components is part of what sets the CQ1 apart. That difference is easy to experience once you get one in your hands.
