Yes, aviation headsets are standardized and have a 1/4" mono input and 1/4" mono output, but I would check to be on the safe side.Good luck.

I have a spare headset (I use this when taking passengers with me), that I use for VATSIM (I'm just starting with VATSIM). I also use this adaptor, which works really well.Don't get caught like I did and forget that it needs a battery (not supplied and/or installed). After hours of wondering why my microphone wouldn't work using my aviation headset and checking cables, etc. , and about to e-mail support about it, I read the small manual that comes with and now it works fine :)Bruce.

From looking at the Seinheiser website, the headset in question has a 10 pin round connector (looks similar to a MIDI sized connector in the drawings, but with more pins :->) and includes 2 lines each for right and left, 2 more for mic, and 2 for the push to talk button (which makes 8) - this is a headset designed for ATC sites, which I'm guessing use this 10pin round connector. Assuming you could find an appropriate 10pin connector for this to plug into, I imagine you could probably make a cable that would plug into a sound card (although would depend on the impedence of the "speakers" and the mic unit).Tim

The headset output (speakers) are 1/4", but the input (mike) is not. I don't know the dimensions, but you need a special adapter. This is so you don't plug the wrong thing into the wrong jack in the cockpit.I have a pair of Sigtronics, but honestly don't have much desire to use them on the computer- even 11 ounces is heavy after awhile.
