I just started my studies towards PPL, and am looking into buying a good ANR aviation headset for flying on Cessna 172.
I have an office job, and I'm dealing with a lot of noise, hence ideally I'd like to use this headset with my computer as well (as buying 2 ANR headsets for different purposes is quite an expense).
From what I understand aviation headsets normally have 2 jacks with a different diameter. There are probably adapters to convert them to a standard 3.5 mm jack, but I wonder if it affects its noise reduction capabilities.
Conversely, can I buy a PC-compatible headset, and use it for flying with an appropriate adapter?
Also, most ANR headsets seem to operate on AA batteries. Are there any with lithium-ion battery instead, so that it can be recharged?
