Airman 850
General Description
The Telex Airman 850 is designed for use in aircraft with low noise levels.
Ambient noise levels in such aircraft cockpits may be considered harmful
when exposed to for long periods of time. In addition, these ambient noise
levels require pilots to increase communications volume level for clear
understandable communications. This increased communications level
adds to the harmful and fatiguing aircraft cockpit environment.
The Telex Airman 850 is ideally suited to this environment. Soft, pliable
cushions provide passive attenuation of unwanted background noise. The
advanced active noise reduction system removes even more noise in the
communications frequency range. This combination gives the Telex
Airman 850 a unique improvement in communications clarity and
intelligibility. With ambient noise reduced, communications levels can also
be reduced, providing less fatigue and an overall improvement in comfort.
Complimenting these noise reduction features is a durable, lightweight
design with adjustable sliders increasing long-term fit and comfort. A new
boom mounted microphone utilizes an electret noise-canceling element
for improved noise rejection. Extended response drivers improve sound
reproduction. The result is a comfortable, lightweight, headset that
provides the ultimate in clear, understandable communications with no
batteries or complicated controls to get in the way.
The Telex Airman 850 headset with boom microphone is approved for
aircraft use under FAA TSO’s C57a and C58a.
The conditions and tests required for the TSO approval of this article are
minimum performance standards. It is the responsibility of those
installing this article either on or within a specific type or class of aircraft
to determine that the aircraft installation conditions are within the TSO
standards. TSO articles may have separate approval for installation on
aircraft. The article may be installed only if performed under 14 CFR part
43 or the applicable airworthiness requirements.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC
Rules, Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.

Design Features (See Figure 1)
Fit and Comfort
An adjustable headband gives the wearer two inches (51mm) of up and down
earphone adjustment per side, while the gimbal mounting improves the
headset’s side-to-side comfort.
Boom Microphone
The Airman 850 features a miniature, amplified, noise canceling electret
microphone that provides superior 400 Hz hum rejection. The microphone
is mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom that permits precise microphone
placement. The boom rotates 320° to allow the microphone to be worn on
either side of the head. For best results, the microphone should be placed
as close to the mouth as possible. The microphone includes a replaceable
windscreen to minimize popping, hissing, and breathing sounds when
speaking.
Controls
The Airman 850 contains an On/Off switch to control ANR power and a Hi/
Low switch for controlling receiver volume.
Cordage and Plugs
The microphone cordage is protected inside the boom. A strain relief on the
cord provides maximum durability. Shielded wire throughout the headset
protects against RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and EMI (Electro
Magnetic Interference).

Headset Operation
1. Connect the headset as shown in Figure 2.
2. Rotate the entire boom overhead to wear the microphone on either
the right or left side of the head (Note the two stops below the boom
housing).
3. With the Airman 850 resting securely on top of the head, check that
the earphone housings are centered over the ears. Maximum
performance depends on the proper fit of the headset.
4. For best noise cancellation, position the microphone as close to the
mouth as possible and speak in a normal voice.
5. To activate the Active Noise Reduction feature, move the “On/Off”
switch to the “On” position (See Figure 3). The active noise reduction
feature of this headset uses power obtained from the aircraft through
the boom microphone connection. Active noise reduction will only
function when power is received from the microphone connection.
There are many different communications systems in use today and
most systems can be configured for this type of use. each system
can be configured differently. When determining proper system
configuration, select an operational mode that provides constant power
to the boom microphone. If in doubt consult the avionics equipment
manufacturer or qualified avionics technician.
When conditions allow for boom microphone power only during
push-to-talk, it may be preferred to keep the ANR power switch in
the “off” position.
6. When required, the user may increase headphone volume level by
moving the volume “HI/LOW” switch to the “HI” position (See figure
3). The “low” position is considered normal. The Airman 850 should
function properly with most avionics equipment when used in the “low”
position.

Microphone Gain Adjustment
The microphone gain has been factory-adjusted to the nominal level required
for normal radio operation. Under normal circumstances microphone gain
does not require adjustment. If needed, adjustment by a qualified avionics
technician is recommended. To access the microphone gain, insert a 1.5mm
flat head screwdriver through the access hole in the microphone housing
(See Figure 4). Clockwise rotation increases the microphone gain.

Note: There is a hole on both
sides of the microphone
housing. One is blocked by
foam. Do not use the side
