With its state-of-the-art A20 Headset, Bose takes its legendary ANR technology far beyond anything the aviation industry has ever seen. This revolutionary new model brings users such 21st Century niceties as Bluetooth cell phone and audio connectivity and Bose's Priority Switching features that allow wearers to customize which audio sources they'd prefer to hear (phone, music, intercom). This 12-oz headset also features Bose's customary, ultra-comfortable earphones and padded headband, while this latest version has been optimized for 1/3 less clamping force than is customary of most other market offerings.
This version of the A20 features a 6-pin Redel connector for battery-free aircraft panel power. This stereo headset also boasts dual volume controls for that "just right" level of audio clarity, a flex-boom Electret mic for set-it-and-forget-it placement, and Bose's signature electronic noise cancellation (ENC) technology for the quietest, most accurate active noise reduction (ANR) the industry has ever seen. The absolute best aviation headset available anywhere, from the industry-leading experts at Bose.
Note: This version is Bluetooth, straight cord with a single 6 pin connection for aircraft provided power.
Bose A20 with BT and LEMO plug
Works as expected. My second A20, first with LEMO so my other is now a passenger headset.
Inadequately labeled great headset
I love this headset. However, it is a bit mislabeled. One would be led to believe that it would readily fit into an Airbus jack, which it doesn't. Also, that it wouldn't need batteries, which it does. The lack of compatibility with Airbus came as a bit of a surprise, I had to spend an extra $50 on an adapter and $45.00 in shipping charges, which was a real bummer, considering that I'd already dropped $1100 on the headset. -So much for the free shipping. -And it apparently takes batteries, which is another surprise, considering it's airplane powered. I was under the impression that I wouldn't need to keep fresh batteries in my flight kit, but apparently I do. On the up-side, this headset works great, is comfortable, and the mic is low-profile, so you don't look like a total noob if you're watching movies with the headset while deadheading...which is entirely possible.
Great headsets but cost too much and no discounts anywhere.
Excellent acoustics Good
These are great headphones and the acoustics are better than any other one I have used. My only complaint is that sometimes when i move my jaw the seal of the ear cups causes the ANR to stop momentarily. I understand this may be just design and in the end nothing is perfect.
A20 BOSE HEADSET.
