Bluetooth phone calls to the dispatcher/maintenance is brilliant. Unfortunately, they do not work with the intercom system of the MD-88/90. Can't talk to the ramp or the FA's through your headset. There is also no side tone (hear yourself when you talk) with these on the Mad Dog either. I have tried two headsets on multiple aircraft (thanks Sporty's for your awesome customer service) and neither headset would work. On some aircraft the microphone doesn't work at all. Bose tech support acknowledged that this "may be" an aircraft compatibility issue. I asked about a firmware update because the head set is set for that and they say it is hardware related and firmware won't fix it... sadly Mad Dog pilots, we're going to have to change planes to get to wear these babies.August 15, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat lightweight comfortable headsetI'll start off by saying before buying this headset, I had a cheap, basic headset I had bought off of Amazon for my private and been using since. Now that I'm a flight instructor, this basic headset that I used had become uncomfortable (and honestly a little painful) after flying for so much during the day. I tried this pair on at Oshkosh, after trying on the A20's. I'm not sure how much the A20's compress on your head after a full day of flying, but these are a dream. They just sit on top of your head, and the ear buds are so nice. There is a level of difficulty trying to pinpoint which size earbuds to use. I'm very pleased with this headset.August 14, 2018Would You Recommend?NoNot for meAwkward. Feels weird on my head, not very stable. Not much improvement with the pads still feeling a bit like the A20 ear cups. Still get hot spots on top of my head. Wires are huge and heavy and in the way. Repacking it in its case is awkward, feels like it could break easily. The case has instructions printed on the inside of it on how to repack the headset, that tells you how weird it is. Just a weird headset. Sticking with A20 until they come up with a better idea. I’m a 737 captain.August 14, 2018Purchased
2 weeks agoWould You Recommend?Yes737 pilotGreat headset. Really light. Finally a headset I can ware sunglasses on my ears without them being pressed into my head!ANR is perfect for the 737, not so much for my 172...Double tap thing works well, but does kick off occasionally like during my captain’s hard landings or when I sneeze....Good headset- a keeperAugust 13, 2018Purchased
2 weeks agoWould You Recommend?YesGreat headset. Use to the bose A20 but will get use to the lightweight headsetAugust 7, 2018Purchased
3 weeks agoWould You Recommend?YesGreat ProductAbsolutely fantastic. ANR rivals my One-X and it’s very comfortable. It takes a little getting used to put it on/ear buds in correctly. Once you have it down you shouldn’t have any issues at all. Everything seems great the only complaint I would have is that it can be somewhat annoying to put back in the case.August 7, 2018Purchased
1 month agoWould You Recommend?YesThe ProFlight Helps UPS DeliverGreat headset so far. Cancels noise very well and is comfortable. Medium seems to do the trick with respect to noise and the tap through feature works nicely.August 5, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat Lightweight HeadsetI've ben using them for two weeks now. The light weight of the headset is great, the noise canceling is amazing and the sound clarity is great. The side cushions where not as comfortable as I thought they where going to be,they need more cushion and it took some time to get use to those, unfortunately I have a big head, this headset was made for pilots with average or less then average size heads. If the side cushions would extend just a little more, it can solve that problem. Being able to stop the noise canceling on one side at a time is a great feature, but it's sensitive enough that if you hit a good bump rolling down the runway, it will activate that feature which can be distracting at times. The in ear plugs are comfortable, really great idea with that. All in all, apart from the little twerks i mentioned, really good buy.August 4, 2018Would You Recommend?YesBought them, tried them, Love themI bought these on the release date and have been using them on the last few trips. I fly a small biz jet, two person crew, alternate left and right seat duties every other day.Pros:Light weight, comfortable to use even on five leg daysANR is amazingBluetooth is easy to pair with my phoneEar tips are comfortable and after a few times is super easy to insert into the earTalk through feature is fantasticBattery life is pretty goodCons:Surprising but not a deal breaker, the case is larger than I thought but is understandable because of the robust cable they use.Overall: Very happy with these headsets. They are a joy to use especially when I’m sitting in a hot airplane in Las Vegas and getting my clearance. No more ear sweats!August 4, 2018Purchased
1 month agoBought the Bose Pro Pilot looking for a lighter more comfortable headset. I’m a regional airline pilot. For me the in ear is uncomfortable. Couldn’t get a good fit with any of the 3 sizes. And none of them satyed in my ears. Constantly readjusting so I could hear ATC. Bose is an awesome product. But I’m giving this one a thrumbs down. Going back to my A20.August 3, 2018Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 19 questions Browse 19 questions and 21 answersWill the 6 pin connector work on the Embraer 175/190?BEST ANSWER: I do not know which connection is available in that aircraft.Since the ProFlight does not appear have intercom communications volume control buttons (only Bluetooth volume buttons) on the control unit, can the communications volume be adjusted via the Bose App? If not, that would leave only the aircraft’s audio panel volume control affecting both pilots volume input and no individual adjustment for fine tuning to personal liking.BEST ANSWER: In the professional cockpits for which this headset is intended, each pilot likely has an independent audio panel. Frankly, I always found the level controls on the A20 and similar headsets to be nothing more than a "gotcha" switch. Sure as the day is long, I'd accidentally turn those suckers down pulling them out of the bag or what not. I'm glad to see them gone on the ProFlight.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 ?BEST ANSWER: I believe the XLR5 version of the ProFlight can run off aircraft power (if present) or batteries. An adapter is not needed, assuming the aircraft requires an XLR5.Hi there! Was wondering when will the Bose Proflight with the 5XLR plug be available? And how much would it cost to be shipped over to Malaysia?BEST ANSWER: We expect to ship within the next few weeks.What will be the shipping cost to Peru?BEST ANSWER: Approximately $254.00 via I-Parcel. This includes all duties and taxes.Does the aircraft powered version also have the option to put batteries inside?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has a battery box for power if needed.Can you send this to a P.O. box ?BEST ANSWER: No, ships UPS and requires a signature when delivered.Bose has a 30 trial period when bought from them does Sportys?BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you are not satisfied with your purchase just return the headset for a refund or exchange.What will be the shipping cost to Uk?BEST ANSWER: Using I-Parcel the cost would be approximately $287.00 This would include all duties, taxes and tracking information.Does it work with a Cessna Caravan C208 ?BEST ANSWER: Yes, we have a review by two of our pilots that were flying in a pc12 on our website.Would this be good for use in a turbine helicopter?BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend them in a helicopter. I would recommend the over-ear headset.Will Sporty's be able to ship the Bose ProFlight Headset as fast (or faster when available) than buying directly from Bose?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.BEST ANSWER: Yes, the headset will revert to a passive headset.Does this unit allow for the use of an aux input connection for connections without bluetooth?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has an aux input connection.How well does it work with a Cirrus SR 22?BEST ANSWER: The A20 will provide better ANR in a propeller-driven aircraft.can it be used ona computer?BEST ANSWER: No, the connections will not fit into a computer.Does it take batteries?BEST ANSWER: Yes. two AA batteries for the twin plug configuration.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) ?BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the connection that you fly the most. We currently have an adapter available to go from the XLR (Airbus) to GA and from the LEMO (6 pins) to GA.Working for long term for Airbus but also and Boing could you send in Greece in Athens ?
