This headset has all the things I loved in the mach1 and fixed all the things that I didn’t making this the headset I will probably have for the rest of my Aviation career.November 24, 2018Purchased
3 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat comfortable headset.I have been using it on the B-737 for 6 flights. So far it has been great! It’s light and comfortable and the ANR is awesome. I read many reviews prior to ordering and was concerned about some of the complaints. I would agree with some of the gripes: cord is heavy and can pull the headset around on your head, tap control doesn’t work well, but I’ve found these are very minor annoyances that can easily be overcome and are far outweighed by the comfort of this headset. It really only took one or two legs to figure out how to attach the wire so it doesn’t pull on the headset and the tap feature doesn’t have to be on. It is so convenient to remove one earbud to hear a jumpseater or whatever. I select high on the ANR and it is super quiet. I’m sticking with this headset and highly recommend it.October 31, 2018Purchased
1 month agoDurability2 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoNot ready for prime timeI bought the ProFlight at OSH. Have been using it in a B737 since (about 300 hrs of use). Yes, it's light and comfortable. I haven't had the problem others describe with it moving around on my head, but I clip the cord to my epaulet. Here are the problems 1) I haven't found the earbud size that keeps it in my ear. Constantly have to keep pushing it back in. ANR is not great. I have a QC20, and those earbuds fit perfectly and the ANR is much better. 2) Must be VERY careful changing the tips. They are held on the plastic earpiece by little barbs, and it's very easy to break off those barbs, and then you're screwed. 3) The microphone is supposed to be set with the white dot towards your mouth, but mine was mounted with the white dot AWAY from the mouth. Have to twist the boom 180 degrees to position it correctly. It doesn't want to stay there, so I'm constantly twisting the boom to keep the microphone positioned correctly. 4) Wind muff on the mic refused to stay on. I finally secured it with an o-ring. 5) By far the most irritating problem is, during takeoff and landing, the ANR turns on and off randomly, especially if there is a thump like the nose wheel hitting a centerline light. Obviously distracting during critical phase of flight.
Lesson learned: Never buy the A-model of anything, I guess. A nice idea, but they need to work out a lot of bugs. I guess I'll be returning it.October 28, 2018Great in a CirrusLove the headset and functionality. Using in a Cirrus SR22T and noise reduction works great. Really like they sent 3 sets of ear sizes.September 30, 2018Purchased
2 months agoDurability1 / 5Reliability1 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use1 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoCan’t believe they released them for saleI was so excited to try my new headset. I had just switched rotations so I was going to be flying for 15 straight days. After the third day my ears heart so bad Iswitched back to our standard issued telex 750 non noise reduction. I waited several days and tried them again with a different set of ear buds. Much better but they would work loose in about 30 minuets. One of the other many problems is the cord is much to heavy for the weight of the headset. So between the ear buds and the weight of the cord pulling them off my head I was constantly fiddling and adjusting them. It was abustley the worst. I took them off and back into the box. That was the last time I touched them until I returned them.September 17, 2018Would You Recommend?YesBose ProFlightI love them !! The best headphones in the market without doubtSeptember 9, 2018Purchased
3 months agoWould You Recommend?NoBose Pro Flight Review—Thumbs DownI was really exited for these new headaets. Tried them on a B762 and was immediately dissappointed. They are very light making them feel unstable on the head, the extremely large cable pulled the unit around the head. It clamps so hard on the head, that you actually feel it is there, and after an hour it gets uncomfortable. The earbuds were an issue after an hour and a half of flight time (Tried both S and M), it hurts your ear and is uncomfortable. I recieved a defective unit, since the tight ear bud did not work to listen to ATC (Tried it on 3 different airplanes) I assumed it was an issue with the plug. Double tap feature was good, but it also amolified the ambient sounds (airplane, ground crew on airplane, etc) making it hard to understand the other pilot.Only great thing is that the ANR was surprisingly good.Overall I gave it a thumbs down...Returned the unit and sticking with the A20’sSeptember 4, 2018Purchased
3 months agoWould You Recommend?NoWorst headset I ever owned.I tried to like them. I tried them for a week of flying. After the second day I switched back to the telex 750 non noise canceling. Problems : 1 headset to light and flimsy . Cord way to heavy, they pull them off your head. The cord also runs wright next to the mic and I was constantly pulling it away from my mouth. The earbuds continued to loosen up and I fiddled with them nonstop. Really disappointed and returned them.September 3, 2018Would You Recommend?NoPlease read before purchaseMy ears hurt after one or two hours wearing it even though they included different size ear buds. I tried them all. Didn’t like how it fit. Sent it back. Great noice canceling but uncomfortable. For 1000 bucks I have to love it. Back to my Zulu 2’s.August 28, 2018Purchased
3 months agoNot sure.Sound quality and mic performance are excellent. I have a pair of the noise canceling earbuds and find them more comfortable than the earpieces on the Clarity Aloft that I am replacing. (Needed to send the CA in for the 4th time) Am disappointed with the headband on the Bose. Haven’t found a comfortable, sturdy location on my head. Headset seems to travel around on my head. If you could mount the earbuds and mic on the Clarity Aloft setup, then you’d have a good combination. Also, Bose has a high opinion of themselves and it is a bit pricey for what you get. Not sure if I’m going to keep it.August 27, 2018Purchased
