Bose is proud to announce the next generation of Pilot Aviation Headsets - the new A20!

The A20® Aviation Headset is Bose's most advanced pilot headset yet. Its breakthrough innovations reduce more noise and provide even greater comfort than previous models, without compromising the clear audio you expect from Bose. Plus, the A20 Aviation Headset now includes auxiliary audio input and Bluetooth phone connectivity.

Enjoy a quieter flight - proprietary technologies in the A20 aviation headset reduce more noise than ever before, across the full spectrum of human hearing, in even louder environments. Advanced electronics now use microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and reduce more ambient sound. Improved Bose ear cushion technology helps further reduce unwanted noise. New cushion materials block more sound before it enters the earcups, providing an even quieter headset experience.

And even greater comfort - the A20 aviation headset also provides a new level of comfort and stability. The overall headset profile is more compact, but the earcup cavity has been enlarged to allow more room for the ears. These proprietary cushions improve the earcups' acoustic seals, even over eye glasses, and remain comfortable during long flights. The solid magnesium headband is extremely durable, yet lightweight, and its sheepskin cushion eliminates hot spots. All these improvements have been achieved without increasing the headset's weight or clamping force. The A20 headset weighs just 12 ounces and exerts significantly less clamping force than most active headsets.

AUX IN and Bluetooth technology convenience - the redesigned control module now includes an auxiliary audio input with Intercom/AUX priority switching. Many pilots will want to use this input for dedicated GPS and traffic warning systems. You can set audio priority to mute the AUX input completely when intercom signal is detected, or to simply lower the AUX volume appropriately. Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity allows you to receive calls wirelessly while wearing the A20 headset. And its enhanced EMI protection helps minimize interference from the mobile phone. Plus, the headset's integrated sidetone provides a more natural feel to Bluetooth phone conversations, even when you're disconnected from the intercom.

Smart power control - the power system in the A20 aviation headset includes a smart shutoff feature that helps provide at least 45 hours of use from just two AA alkaline batteries. With the installed version of the headset, the technology intelligently switches from aircraft power to battery power as needed.

For all types of aircraft the A20 aviation headset is available in an installed, aircraft-powered version and in portable, battery-powered versions for various craft, including helicopters.

Product features:
  • Significantly improved noise reduction across a wider range of frequencies. Proprietary Bose innovations now use microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and reduce more ambient aircraft noise.
  • Redesigned ear cushions deliver greater comfort using new materials. More compact earcups now have a larger interior cavity, allowing more room for the ears - redistribution of headset weight also helps improve overall comfort and stability.
  • Enhanced center torsion spring on magnesium headband provides a consistent, comfortable fit for any size head - with significantly less clamping force than most pilot headsets.
  • TriPort acoustic headset structure, available only from Bose, produces tonally balanced audio from relatively small and lightweight headphones.
  • Active equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.
  • Adjustable powered microphone can be connected to either earcup and set in a range of stable positions for optimal communications.
  • Auxiliary audio input on redesigned control module for connection to GPS and other devices. Pushbutton Intercom/AUX enables priority switching.
  • Bluetooth phone connectivity lets you take calls wirelessly through the headset.
  • Enhanced EMI protection to minimize communications interference.
  • Integrated sidetone for more natural sounding intercom and mobile communications.
  • Smart shutoff for extended battery life. Installed headsets also feature a flexible power system to automatically switch from aircraft power to battery power as needed.
  • Ergonomic control module has been redesigned for greater ease of use. Includes contoured grip and streamlined interface with high-contrast icons on main controls.
  • TSO certified by FAA/JAA to meet performance standards for headsets used on civil aircraft. Made in the US, it also meets RTCA/DO-160D and DO-214 environmental requirements.

5 from 5 The Best Headset on the General Aviation Market

The Bose A20 is definitely a must-have for professional pilots and private pilots who prefer higher-end quality headsets.

The headset is lighter compared to other headsets on the market and offers superior audio transmission and reception quality.

In addition, the headset gives the user the ability to listen to music in high definition.

The Bose A20s active noise reduction feature is also of stellar standards -- very effectively eliminating unwanted noise which will otherwise cause fatigue and loss of hearing overtime.

Furthermore, the ability to make and receive calls with the headset is a very nice and handy feature.

For student pilots with higher budgets: this is a headset you definitely will want to invest in. Yes, its pricey -- but its worth every penny.

Audio Quality - 10/10
Comfort; (Usage on Long Flights) - 10/10
Auxiliary Audio Quality (Bluetooth/cabled music feedback) - 10/10
Noise Cancellation - 10/10

This is without a doubt the best performing aviation headset on the market.

Note: Unlike another group of headsets which features active noise reduction technology (which under guidelines cannot be named), the Bose A20 ANR Headset has no background static/whirring sound when noise cancellation is active.

5 from 5 the best

i now own three of these, plan on purchasing a fourth so the whole family can enjoy the superior comfort and noise reduction this product provides.
i really enjoy being able to listen to two stations at once, one in each ear. this improves intelligibility a lot. so, the atis will be in both ears, but if atc says something, the phones split it automatically so atc is in one ear and the atis in the other.
these phones were recommended to me by a former airline captain who was my ifr instructor. at the time i had telex noise reduction headphones, he just chuckled and said, the pros use bose, try it and youll see why. he was right.

5 from 5 The hype is real

They are as good as you have heard, and more.

If you ever owned a pair of Bose headphones, you will be surprised at how much better the build quality is in these things. I mean, I have owned several Bose headphones in the past, and they were perfect and all, but the materials they use for the A20 are just on a class on its own. They feel so robust and durable!

At the same time, these things are confortable! My ears and my head are a bit on the large side, but the headset still feels very light and it exerts no pressure.
