Default Headset Financing

Anyone heard of or used this company to finance their headset?

Why don't you get a zero APR card?

Understanding that everyone is in a different financial position, I would try to avoid financing at all costs, especially when it is at 19.9%. You could get a credit card with a low introductory rate well below that. Or do it the old fashioned way and save for it and pay cash.

What Ohlsan said. I would add to that by saying if you can't afford the headset you are buying, and have to finance it, you are not buying the correct headset. There are good ones out there for less than $300. And I fly with people who are still using them 5 and 10 years later.

All an expensive headset does for you is reduces the money left in your wallet.

Let's see, retail pricing and 20% financing charge by Swedish payment gateway provider with a 2 star customer service rating. What's not to love? All this and a company tagline of: "Your absolute BEST supplier of Pilot Supplies on the planet" GMAFB

PayPal offers free financing. They give you 6 months 0% to pay it off.

Assuming you're in a jet, the Telex 750 is the gold standard. These are available used off eBay for under $50. Use with foam or re-usable rubber (my recommendation) earplugs such as these

offer exceptional noise attenuation for a bargain basement cost.

Zero need to finance a headset.

Your company should provide one for you in the cockpit. At least envoy does.

The Amazon Card, when I bought mine, offered 0% APR for 18 months. Not a bad deal at all.

I've never gotten sick more in my life than when I used company provided headsets my first two years. And yes I used sanitation wipes.
