A great unit, great audio, easy to get running and works perfectly. My online buddies all comment on the audio quality. Great piece of gear. Thanks for turning it out.”

When I got my new headset, I thought to myself "this is so awesome, I wish I could use it with the computer for flight sim, skype, etc." so I started looking around for adapters for GA headsets to the computer. The only thing I could find was a box that basically converted the plugs to 1/8" mini plugs. It also needed a 9V battery for the microphone, and that sounded like more trouble than I wanted to deal with. I also didn't want to have to keep swapping my speakers out to use whatever I got.
So I started looking, and found ... the Flight Sound X.
This thing is PERFECT. I ordered it, and not much later it arrived at my door. Within 30 seconds (literally) I was using it. It just worked. No software to install; no messing with my existing audio cables; just plug it in, plug in my headset, and start talking.

In short, I very much like the concept and execution of design that you have taken. It looks to be a far higher quality and more robust product than for instance, the [NAME-OMMITED] adapter which operates via the standard soundcard jacks. Flight Sound X is a more portable and far more elegant solution.
I bought the adapter to use with Skype ... I am just tickled with your adapter. I can't wait to get X-Plane installed and see how it sounds then!
This is the best version of a headset adapter I've seen! All of the other ones need cumbersome batteries and need to use the phone/mic jacks :( This is a much better solution.
Fantastic customer service...
I received the Flight Sounds X yesterday (Saturday), and I couldn't be more pleased. The build quality is excellent, and the instructions for use in Vista were indispensible. Best of all, the device works just as advertised ... Sound quality and volume are both good, although I now wish I had a stereo headset to take advantage of the stereo capability. Your product is significantly better than the one I ordered from Sportys and had to return (a) becuase it didn't work, and (b) it seemed to be so cheaply made.
Congratulations on producing such a great product and thanks for the speedy service.

FlightSound X arrived. Just plugged in and start. Great job.
The sounds I am hearing now are real life raw sounds. ... I am very pleased and proud to own FSX Dual, with both my Dave Clark headsets I can now start teaching the the next generation what I consider to be the very best hobby one can have if at all interested in flying.
You have wonderful products that greatly enhance peoples enjoyment of this great hobby ...
Best regards to you.
I have recently purchased the Flight Sound X Dual aviation headset adapter.
I am writing here because I have not seen a written review on this piece of hardware yet.
I must say after plugging this unit in(one USB cable required and is included), it was a painless endeavour to get it up and running with PilotEdge.
It works from Windows XP to Windows 8 and is Mac capable.
The biggest feature about the Dual is that you can set up 2 aviation headsets on the same unit.
You can converse with your co-pilot as you would in a R/W aircraft and still have the functionality to PTT for the ATC.
Although I do not have a co-pilot, I am hoping to entice some of my friends to sit with me during some flights and be able to listen to what I am hearing and saying to ATC.
There is a separate on/off switch on the box along with transmit lights for each channel.
There is also individual volume and squelch controls for each channel.
I must mention that using the PTT button on my PFC yoke for ATC means that you have to set up the Dual to ignore the remote PTT function(cables and PTT buttons not included). This is easily done with a flip of the switch at the back of the unit but leaves the LED lights of the Transmit indicators always on.
As for the clarity of sound, it is outstanding -from listening to myself talk thru the headset and listening back to myself on the audio recordings.
This is a far better system that I had previously.
I was running a David Clark HC13(I think that is the model) plugged into a BS-12 headset adapter and that was plugged into a GF-ATC(because I wanted to have squelch) and then finally to the computer itself.
I am now running just the Flight Sound X Dual along with a Bose Aviation X headset.
I tried the Bose headset on the old system and had the same audio quality as the David Clark's. Which was OK, but still was not clear enough for me.
I know that some people are looking to have that real aviation sound that is a little more garbled. Then this is not for you.
But if you like to listen to good clear quality sound- you might want to check this out.

I am in no way affilated with this company and just wanted to throw in my two cents on this product.
Just got The Flight Sounds FSX Dual intercom and this is one of those products that is great for what its made to do! Out-of-box, it is easy to set up, use and is very well built. USB Connection time was about 10 minutes, which included mounting with Velcro. The volume controls operate smoothly and include not only headphone level adjustment, but also a volume control for the background noises (engine, propeller, etc.). Simulator (X-Plane 10) configuration was extremely quick and, other than adjusting the microphone level, was ready to use right when we plugged it in. The Intercom performed extremely well with Pilot Edge and we could here the controllers very well without any static or distortion. Also, it has two rear jacks for connecting an external push to talk switch if your simulator yoke does not have one built in. It is great for two pilot applications or instructor-student situations as it has jacks for two headsets.The FSX Dual is well packaged and is shipped with a very helpful user guide. Overall, this is an excellent intercom.
I wanted to speak to the professional service that I received from both Flight Sounds in general and specifically Terry Southern.
Way back about 4 years ago I purchase Flight Sounds X-H. Unfortunately for me it was not compatible with my DC H10-76 headset. At the time the Flight Sounds X-M was not available. After unsuccessfully trying to get it to work I put it away. Fast forward to a couple of months ago. I sent Flight Sounds a couple of emails looking to see if there was anything they could do for me.
Due to an over aggressive junk filter on my email, I did not receive any of their replies to my message. I was just not aware they were replying. Finally I was able to get one of their email responses through my email junk filter. When I opened the message from Terry here was the entire thread where they had repeatedly replied to my emails with different options that they would make available to me. Long story short they allowed me to choose whatever option best suited me. To me this is a level of professionalism that you don't see commonly now a days with so many different companies selling so
many different things these days. I just want to say again to both Terry and Flight Sounds "Thanks for your Professionalism!"
