Headset Haiku

May 1, 2008 by Paul Richfield, Senior Editor

I’m putting together a headset buyer’s guide for AOPA Online, and have found the vast profusion of brands and models to be impressive, if a little overwhelming. As such, I will now express my headset-related feelings in the form of Haiku, a type of traditional Japanese poetry. Typically, Haiku have three lines. The first line usually contains five syllables, the second line seven, and the third line five again.

Flexible mic boom

Hand adjustable knurled knobs

Three-year warranty

    OK, Paul, you asked for it:

    Head caught in vice grip,
    Controllers talk, but only static,
    Say again, Washington Center . . .

    “And so there I was”

    “On fire, out of gas and lost!”

    “Hey, was that for us?”

    Ever seen a bird
    Flying with a headset on?
    Why do you need one?

    Thousand bucks for this?
    What’s that rumbling noise I hear?
    Batteries are dead.

  9. Cory Emberson Says:

    Paul, this is too much fun.

    In-the-ear headsets
    No clamping or headaches – ha!
    Damn, my hair looks good.
