From the pilot perspective I want to know how to deal with the noise in the cockpit on the turboprop aircraft while long-run flights.
The reason is old type aircraft with bad headphones which doesn't protect from noise than they should be.

  • $\begingroup$ The problem is that headset is very old, reducing noise approximately to 70%. $\endgroup$ – wiaim Dec 29 '17 at 21:52

The most common way to deal with noise in the cockpit is to get yourself a noise canceling headset. There are a bunch of models out there but the most common seem to be the Bose and the Lightspeed. I personally have the lightspeed and will attest to at least a 30%-50% perceived noise reduction over my old passive headset.

    $\begingroup$ If the most common way of dealing with noise doesn't work for you, that's something you should definitely state prominently in the question. $\endgroup$ – yshavit Dec 29 '17 at 22:01

    $\begingroup$ A decent electrical engineer should be able to fabricate a conversion plug to allow a modern ANR headset to work in that aircraft. Well worth the money, imho, in order to preserve your hearing. $\endgroup$ – Ralph J Dec 29 '17 at 23:42
