2 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?Yesas a student pilotI was fortunate enough to have a friend give me an old pair of Bose X when I first started my flight training in 2009. For various reasons, I had to stop training--for the most part--before 2010. I restarted training in the summer of 2017 using the same headset. It was in November that I noticed a crack along the cover of a wire and knew it was time to replace the Bose X.
The Bose X, obviously, has great durability. I will assume my new A20s will be the same, but I wouldn't give them a 5 star until I know for sure. Otherwise, they are a nice upgrade. They are very comfortable and I can't ever imagine life without ANR.
Keep in mind, I haven't used any other brand and I am a low time...ok, low-low time...pilot. But I still recommend them to anyone that asks.January 30, 2018Purchased
2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesSo good I bought my wife a setThese are amazing headsets. The Bluetooth for music and phone is beautiful. I don’t listen to music while flying but wanted to see what the sound is like and was blown away at the quality. I have the Q35 II headphones and these are equal or better. In our great room at home I put my wife’s favorite song on and handed the A20’s to her, she smiled and wave bye and kept them on! I have had the pleasure of using all the latest headsets and these are the lightest feeling and least compression feeling on my head/face of all. 2+ hours flights are very comfortable, no ‘ear sweat’! My CFI has serious hearing loss and requires hearing aids. The A20’s are the only headset he can comfortably wear without issue. I know they are not for everybody, but you should try them o. A flight if you ever can before you buy.January 13, 2018Purchased

1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesComfortable HeadsetI ordered two of these headsets for my wife and I and cannot explain how much more comfortable they are compared to my David Clark 13.4 I have. The sound quality is amazing and the ease of setup for the bluetooth was nice. The only issue we had was one of the microphones was bad coming from the factory but when I called Sporty's they had a UPS truck come to my house to pick up the bad one and send me a new one right away. If nothing else the customer service between Bose and Sporty's was awesome. I know and trust the Bose brand so I am not worried about the bad mic. I do wish they had a little better quality control off the line but they now know about the issue.January 8, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe Gold StandardIt took a leap of faith, given the price, but after looking at this as an investment, I pulled the trigger and made the purchase (bluetooth option). I'm glad I did! The ANR works great and I it is so comfortable that I forget that it's on. I still maintain that it's a little steep on price and given the its closest competitor is nearly $300 less, I don't see why this price point has to be so much more. That said, the consumer votes with the wallet and they (myself included) are still buying so Bose knows what they are doing.January 6, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesPerforms very well.I can only judge durability and reliability by appearance, which is pretty useless. My last headset, a Peltor, lasted 30 years and is still going strong. Noise cancelling still bothers me a bit on takeoff as I like to hear the engine, so I turn it off for takeoff. Will have try it and get used to it.January 5, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesBest avaiation headset I’ve ever usedI have used many headsets over the many many years I have been in aviation. I will say that you will enjoy other headsets but this one just is above the top in style and comfort and ease of use. I unfortunatly from years of military jet aircraft have hard time hearing ATC but I have found that this headset I did not struggle at all. I did try other headsets before buying this and none compared. The comfort is amazing and could wear for hours on end. May seem extreme but wore for ten hours straight during weekend and never complained nor had ear sweat. If you normally have trouble hearing comfort issues or just want stylish pair of aviation headset this is the one. You’ll love it so much you’ll go buy your entire family a pair.January 1, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat headset!Amazing headset, they are the standard which others compare to. I am moving up from DC 10-13S and it is a huge difference, I tried Zulu 3 and a few other ANC and just like these better. Hope they last as long as my DCs which are being moved back to passenger headsets.December 25, 2017Purchased
