3 months agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?Yesgreat headsetJust received the headset so reliability and durability too early to tell. Excellent audio and noise cancelling. Pricey, but the current standard for performance. Comfortable to wear. Wife very pleased with them. Manage noise well in the Baron which is a relatively loud cockpit.August 10, 2019Purchased
6 months agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Great headset for the 737. ANC still permits me to hear gate agent and F/As prior to pushback with headset on. Lightweight and amazingly comfortable fit. While it’s expensive, quite a few F/Os who came from the RJ world have them. There’s a reason for that.
My previous ANC headset was from a well known aviation headset manufacturer who I trust. However, the Bose A20 is in a much higher level category. I was willing to take the risk because of the 30-day return policy.
I cannot yet comment on durability or reliability. I rate the value high because I suspect it will preserve my hearing, and that’s my primary objective.July 18, 2019Purchased

9 months agoPerformance5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesWOW!I wore my new Bose A20 headset for the first time yesterday...the results were miraculous. The noise cancellation was amazing (my previous headset was nothing like this). The sound from the pilot conversation was, again, nothing short of a miracle...I could hear "all" of the transmissions. I had to turn down the sound...too loud! WOW! I am really impressed. Although expensive, my first thought...well worth the price!May 24, 2019Would You Recommend?YesGreat noise reduction - had a Xmit problemI love the noise reduction - it makes a huge difference. I did have a technical problem though. I flew to a nearby airport and picked up a friend, and on the return flight, I noticed I couldn’t hear myself when transmitting. Turning it off and on didn’t help. Arriving at my home airport, a fellow pilot verified that I wasn’t transmitting. I removed the batteries and reinstalled them and it began working fine. When I picked up my friend at the other airport, I powered down the radios and the plane, but didn’t turn the headset off, so maybe that was the problem.May 22, 2019Purchased
