WOW, top of the line gear! UPDATE *** I needed a TSO headset for Part 121 flying. I tried the Sennheisers, the Telex, Lightspeed Zulu, and the Clarity Aloft noise canceling headsets over an extended period of time. My Clarity Aloft headsets finally failed after 5 years and it was time for something better. I decided to go BIG because I spend a lot of time flying the friendly skies and I wanted something comfortable and functional. Of all of the headsets, the Zulu’s were close to the Bose but the Bose A20’s win based on comfort and imperceptible weight. Sennheiser was a distant third, then Clarity Aloft (YUK), and finally the Telex’s are not in this class of headset.I was amazed at the noise canceling and comfort of the BOSE A20’s. The earcups are soft, there is no clamping of your head, I can wear them coast to coast, and the stereo quality of the AUX inputs is excellent. ATC calls and transmissions are clear as a bell. My only issue is that the noise canceling is so good that there is a tendency to…

ANR Changed My Life Admittedly, I stepped from a $200 “vice grip” head set model to the $1100 Bose A20, so my opinion of the A20 is obviously high in comparison. Here is what I can fairly state about the Bose A20:First, the ANR truly is remarkable. I have not compared Bose’s technology with others’ such as Lightspeed, but I don’t think you could be disappointed with Bose. On a recent flight, I traded my Bose A20 with the other pilot’s Bose X. While the ANR difference between the two models didn’t wow me, there was a definate level of improvement.Second, the comfort of the A20 is excellent. In the same headset swap referenced above, I was ready to get my A20 back because it fits so much better. I guess I am most impressed with the fact that I don’t have a headache after flying a cross country flight from ridiculous clamping action.Third, the Bluetooth is a great feature, especially for those flying IFR and needing clearances from ATC via phone. I wish I had this…

True Luxury After trying the older version (Boise Aviation X) in the 757/767 and GA aircraft, I returned them. The Low volume, sound etc were just no good. However, these new A20 headsets are a thing that every pilot should have, if they want the best. The comfort is great. The sound (or lack of) is just amazing. The bluetooth works just perfect every time. If you are flying a Cessna 150 or a 747, this headset works perfect. Battery life is very good. Stereo sound is great. Only CON is that customer service is NILL.I tried to ask how I could tighten the mike, and they are no help.Yet, the headset is a true joy to have and use!
