Granted, fit of the earseals is most important for proper operation.
However, the type of airplane you are wearing them in while flying, also,
makes a difference. Talk to some of the aerobatics pilots flying Pitts,
Extras, etc, about their experiences with the different makes of NR
headsets. Some do, in fact, work better than others in high noise
environments found in different cockpits. Your results may vary. How well
the NR feature works depends upon the frequency response and amplitude of
the input, and whether the circuitry and speakers can handle it.
