CHAPTER 1
Introduction
General Description
The Telex Airman ANR™ 500 Active Noise Reduction headset combines design
features of a lightweight headset with the advanced techniques of electronic noise
reduction. The result is a comfortable light-weight headset that provides good
electronic reduction of high frequency ambient noise. To take advantage of this
improved listening environment, the Airman ANR™ 500 also features extended
response receivers for improved reproduction not only of radio communications, but
also of stereo music played back over the aircraft entertainment system.
The headset comes in a fixed-wing version for use in aircraft with medium to low
noise levels. This version can be plugged into an aircraft radio for standard monaural
communications or into an intercom system wired for stereo entertainment.
The Airman ANR™ 500 headset is approved for aircraft use under FAA TSO’s C57a
and C58a.

Introduction
Design Features (See Figure 1)
Fitting and Comfort
An adjustable ratcheted headband allows the wearer to make quick and easy
adjustments to fit a wide range of head sizes, while the gimbal mounted earcups
improve the headset comfort.
Control Module
The power on/off switch and the stereo/mono switch are both located on the control
module. The control module can be clipped to a shirt collar or pocket, using the
clothing clip.
Boom Microphone
A flexible gooseneck boom permits precise microphone placement. The boom rotates
120° to use the microphone on either side of the head. The microphone features a
noise-canceling electret element. The microphone amplifier is built into the headset
and operates on power supplied by the aircraft radio. The microphone amplifier has
an adjustable gain control to provide an output level equivalent to carbon microphone
levels. (Adjustment by a qualified avionics technician is recommended.)
Cordage and Plugs
The microphone cordage is protected inside the boom arm. Shielded wire throughout
the headset protects against RFI and EMI. Strain reliefs on all cords provide
maximum durability.

CHAPTER 1
Operation
Headset Operation
1.
Connect the headset as shown in Figure 1.
2.
Rotate the entire boom to wear the microphone on either the right or left
side of the head.
3.
With the Airman ANR™ 500 headband resting securely on the top of the
head, check the earcups are centered over the ears. Proper performance
depends on proper fit of the headset.
4.
For best noise canceling, position the microphone as close to the mouth as
possible with the hole in the microphone housing pointing directly at the
mouth and speak in a normal voice. (See Figure 2)
5.
Select stereo operation if the headset is plugged into an aircraft intercom
system that is wired for stereo, otherwise select mono operation.

Operation
Microphone Gain Adjustment
The microphone gain has been factory-adjusted to the nominal level required for
normal radio operation and should normally not require adjustment. If needed,
adjustment by a qualified avionics technician is recommended. To access the
microphone gain, insert a small phillips head screwdriver through the access hole in
the headset (see Figure 3) Clockwise rotation increases the microphone gain.
NOTE:
The microphone gain adjustment does not have a stop; at one point the
gain will go abruptly from maximum to minimum and will remain at
minimum gain for approximately 30° of rotation.
FIGURE 3.
Microphone Gain Adjustment
Microphone Bias Voltage Requirements
The boom microphone requires a bias voltage of 8-16VDC through 170Ω DC
resistance, 150Ω AC resistance (per RTCA DO-170). If you are uncertain whether
your avionics equipment meets this requirement, consult the avionics equipment
manufacturer.

Operation
Module Battery Installation
The battery module requires one (1) 9-volt battery. Alkaline batteries are
recommended for best performance. Do not use nickel-cadmium rechargeable
batteries or lithium batteries.
1.
To remove the battery door press down on the detente while sliding the battery door over in the direction of the arrow, then lift up.
2.
Install the battery, as shown.
The unit will not operate properly if the battery is installed incorrectly.
3.
Replace the battery door.

Battery Installation
NOTE:

•
Avoid unplugging the headset while noise reduction is turned
on, as this could cause a loud popping sound in the ears.
•
If the batteries are low, the red LED lights on the battery
module. Replace batteries as soon as possible to ensure
continued ANR™ 500 operation.
•
If the ANR operation shuts down due to low batteries, the
Airman ANR™ 500 functions as a conventional headset.
Operation
Optional Aircraft Power Supply Module
The power supply module is designed for use in negative ground electrical systems
only. Do not attempt to use with positive-ground electrical systems.
