About Headset Services Limited

Since its inception, Headset Services Limited (HSL) has served the needs of the Airline Industry by providing and servicing Pilot Headsets, Helmets, Radio and other communication devices. Over time we have expanded our operations and now our customers include Airlines, Air Traffic Control, Emergency Services such as Police, Coastguard and Air Ambulance. Other sectors include Industrial, Airport Ground Handling and Broadcast.

Headset Services Limited was established in 1994 to supply the aviation industry with headsets and flying helmets of all kinds, as well as ear defenders and ancillaries within all these fields. Our customers include airlines, ground support companies, the military, helicopter operators, ATC, Police and Ambulance Air Support units, Search and Rescue, and private pilots. In June 2007, HSL was acquired by the MEL Group and shortly after moved into its purpose built premises at Shoreham Airport. Since then, the company has relocated to the Business Park in Lancing.

The company boasts specialists in all types of communication headsets and pilot helmets with many years of experience in the business; we have repaired or rebuilt virtually every type of headset and helmet in use. The company distributes headsets and spare parts for many popular brands. HSL provides a valuable service to airlines; maintaining headsets and other equipment for customers including British Airways, Air Canada, Easyjet, Aer Lingus and Virgin Atlantic Airways. We also supply ground support companies such as Servisair, DHL, British Airways, Swissport and Menzies. We back this up with a complete after sales support service, so that our customers can get the most out of the equipment they have purchased. Building on this success we have drawn on our experience and industry knowledge to further expand our range and can now offer headsets for all applications - Waterproof SAR, general communications, active noise reduction and bespoke headsets for high-levels of noise. We also modify, repair, refurbish, upgrade and build headsets, helmets, handsets, converters, extension leads, battery boxes and adaptors.

Now we are part of a large international group the scale and diversity of projects we can tackle may have grown, but we have not forgotten that our business was founded on the idea that customers want quality service, expert personal advice and excellent back up and support, and we strive to deliver this to everyone from a new pilot who is looking to purchase their first headset right up to large scale military applications.
