Vlog & Stay Connected

Rethink everything. PPG Smoke’s Headset is the industry-leading pinnacle of active and passive noise canceling for listening to music, taking calls, vLogging, charging your GoPro, phone, or checking in with your local tower, while you fly.

 

Hear What Matters

Paramotors operate between 100 and 140+ decibels. At 80+ decibels, permanent hearing damage can begin to occur. Our headset is built on a 4 microphone hybrid active noise canceling array. It's on an existing hardware stack comprised of Bluetooth® and, Qualcomm® aptX™ audio with Qualcomm® cVc™ noise cancellation.

PPG Smoke Headset replaces 3M Peltor earmuffs providing up to -30 decibels of combined active and passive noise reduction. It’s entirely self-contained with only a single wire between left and right 50mm drivers.

From well-planned adventures to last-minute solo fly-camps, audio and connectivity, while we fly, is an imperative part of our journey. To date, product solutions have been non-existent or feature devoid and expensive. 


Todays Market

Companies like NVolo, Aviator, Nirvana, and Micro Avionics offer pre-packaged solutions that close some of the feature-gap we look for. Yet, they can cost $1500+ only to utilize $30 hardware from Alibaba.

Ad-hoc builds can cost north of $400. For those of you who have taken the time to build a cobbled together Senna helmet or have purchased an ‘industry-leading’ product in this category, you are well aware, they perform terribly. You can't hear anything and pilots typically defer to wearing earbuds under their ear cups, regardless of their decibel reduction ratings.

Custom builds result in unnecessary work, wasted time, spaghetti helmets, horrible audio quality, and poor peripheral connectivity while remaining feature devoid at the expense of time and money.
