The next generation Ascend headset from Telex is now available, featuring a new, comfort-enhancing headband design. The Ascend has a unique modular design that enables the user to swap components for use in a variety of applications. A simple, tool-free procedure makes it easy to change connectors or battery types.
The Ascend headset features a modular design weighing a light six ounces, and its 180 degree pivoting ear cups fold flat for easy storage. The most innovative part of this Telex aviation headset is that it doubles as a pair of high-quality headphones so you can listen to your digital music player when you're on a layover. Its high bandwidth frequency response makes it top notch for music or discourse. Even in this mode, you'll still experience its great active noise reduction (ANR), which is also extremely necessary when the cockpit gets loud. The ANR works even without the long-lasting rechargeable battery it runs on, and its limited speaker output protects your hearing no matter what you're using it for. Taking it from normal headphone use to pilot operation is easy; simply connect the twin aviation jacks with the boom microphone. This versatile design also allows you to upgrade your Telex Ascend over time, and lets you change it between a two-plug version (business or commercial jet) and a single-plug headset (Airbus). Covered by a three year warranty, the Ascend headset is designed to endure every pilot's rigorous schedule.

*Available on ANR models only.
The Telex Ascend is ideal for use in the cockpit or the cabin. The highly flexible design enables users to swap connectors and use the same professional-grade headset for commercial flying or personal audio applications.
Three Year Warranty
The Ascend is covered by a full three-year warranty. The solid construction is designed to prevail through the thousands of hours of flying time that dedicated pilots endure.
Fold Flat Swivel Design
Ascend's unique chassis features pivoting earcups, ensuring a snug, custom-fit for the user. The earcups pivot a full 180°, enabling the headset to fold flat for compact storage.
The Ascend can change as your requirements change. A two-plug version used in a business or commercial jet will work just as well as when converted to a single-plug version for an Airbus.
