The smallest, quietest ANR headset for professional pilots

Now professional pilots can wear a Bose headset designed specifically for airline and corporate flight decks, including all the noise reduction, comfort, and advanced audio features that have made Bose the top-selling headset brand in aviation. The completely new ProFlight Aviation Headset weighs just 4.9 ounces and uses comfortable silicone eartips to virtually eliminate side pressure, so it can be worn for hours without discomfort - perfect for long days in the cockpit of a Boeing or a Citation. It still features digital active noise reduction, Bluetooth connectivity, and famous Bose audio quality, making it a no-compromise headset for professional pilots.

Pilot-friendly features:

  • Innovative, lightweight design weighs just 4.9 oz. - no large ear cups or ear seals
  • Contoured headband with replaceable pad - low profile with minimal clamping force
  • Rotating side pads for comfort and stability - flip up for storage or horizontal for use
  • Digital active noise cancellation - significantly reduces ambient noise so you can lower radio volume
  • Comfortable silicone eartips block noise - change sizes or replace without tools
  • Active equalization - automatically shapes and equalizes incoming signal for enchanced clarity
  • Adjustable boom mic - remains stable with head movement
  • Electret noise canceling mic - increases clarity and reduces background noise, even with “hot mic” airplanes

Perfect for airline and corporate pilots:

  • Tap control for talk-through communication - talk to a co-pilot or cabin crew without removing the headset
  • Quick-release mic and down cable - move the boom mic to either side without tools (ideal for co-pilots)
  • FAA TSO and E/TSO-C139a certified - approved for use on airline flight decks
  • Easily replaceable components - change headband pad, side pads, and eartips for hygiene

Ergonomic control module:

  • Three user selectable levels of noise cancellation - allows for user preference and changing aircraft
  • Bluetooth phone and audio connection - connect to mobile devices for music or lectronic flight bag notifications
  • Audio prioritization - mix Bluetooth audio with intercom audio, or auto-mute Bluetooth audio when intercom is active

Bose Connect app

New from Bose, this free app offers an enhanced way to enable Bluetooth audio sharing, manage connections, pair and unpair devices, or rename devices. It’s also updateable and scalable with continuously developed features - everything you need to get the most out of your ProFlight headset for years to come.

"The unique design of the ProFlight is perfect for turbine airplanes. I love how lightweight the headset is, and how there’s virtually zero clamping force on my head. But the ANR and Bluetooth features are still there, and make those long cross-country flights a lot more enjoyable.”

Which cable do I need?

Most headsets come in multiple cable configurations. Choosing the right one is pretty easy, it just depends on what type of aircraft you fly:

  • Battery powered, twin plugs - this is by far the most common style, with separate microphone and headphone plugs (so-called PJ plugs). Almost every airplane ever built has these two plugs in the panel, so these headsets are universal. The only downside is that, for ANR headsets, you will need to use AA batteries to power the headset.
  • Aircraft powered, 6-pin plug - the second most popular style, sometimes called the "LEMO plug," requires no batteries since it is powered by the panel. This is convenient, but it does require the 6-pin plug to be installed in the panel. While many newer airplanes come with this option, most older airplanes do not. For these applications, you'll need to have your avionics shop wire in the plug - not a big job, but not something pilots can do on their own.
  • Airbus XLR plug - less common is a single 5-pin connector that is made for Airbus jets.

When in doubt, we recommend buying the battery powered, twin plug model. This is the most universal option, and will work in almost any airplane. If you have a 6-pin plug in your airplane or you plan to install one, the aircraft powered model is a nice option.

Can you advise what connector is suitable for the ATR 72 , as it uses the XLR5 Airbus connector ? However the aircraft will not power the headset through the panel . So I would ideally need to buy the GA twin Battery Pin with and Airbus XLR5 connector ?
Tejesh n on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If the aircraft does not power the headset you are correct in that you need the GA Twin plugs with the Battery Pack and the XLR 5 Adaptor.
Will Sporty's be able to ship the Bose ProFlight Headset as fast (or faster when available) than buying directly from Bose?
Jerry on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Once available we can ship overnight. The headset will be available to ship on the same day from all vendors.
With the Battery powered twin Plugs does it work without the batteries? I understand the ANR will not work but will the head set work in stereo mode (i.e. Audio for both ears)? Asking just in case the battery collapses during a flight.
Neville B on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the headset will revert to a passive headset.

A shopper on Jun 11, 2018

Working in a company with Airbus and boeing fleet, which terminations will you suggest in order to use it in the long term ( currently flying Airbus) ?
