View Full Version : First thoughts on the Bose A20 Aviation Headset:

Wow. Just, wow. This headset felt like I was wearing marshmallows over my ears that gave me super-hearing. My flight instructor coincidentally also had a pair of bose proflight aviation headsets (https://www.bigearinc.com/product/bose-proflight-aviation-headset-series-1/) , and we were able to chat as clearly and easily as we could in a vacant park on a quiet day, sitting right next to each other. Every other experience Iíve had in a small plane, conversation was kept short and sweet simply due to the fact hearing each other is difficult, knowing that youíre being heard correctly is impossible, and hearing your own voice amplified in your ears is distracting as well, but with the Bose A20ís, my instructor and I were able to talk about everything under the sun with ease.

First thoughts on the DC Pro-X Aviation Headset:
For comparisons sake, I went on another flight two days later to more accurately compare the Bose A20 Aviation Headset to its competition, and was able to enjoy the David Clark Pro-X Aviation Headset. I was happily surprised to find that the on-ear headset was actually more comfortable for my ear piercings/sunglasses combination than the ear cupping cushions. However, I did notice the audio cutting out when I turned my head to look out over Donner Lake when we flew over, and the microphone didnít stay as securely pressed against my mouth as the Bose A20ís did. The comfort was superior, the price is more affordable ($695, a whole $400 cheaper), but the audio couldnít hold a flame to Bose. The audio-dampening ability worked fairly well, as I had to pull the speaker away from my ear to hear the changes in engine pitch as my boss and piloting mentor Bryan Stewart instructed me to listen as we adjusted the throttle, among other things, but the ambient plane noises seemed generally louder.

The band on the headset was more difficult to me to adjust, but it fit excellently once it did. I found I had to remove the DC Pro-X Aviation Headset to shorten the band, whereas on the Bose A20 headset I was able to do it while wearing it, which was very convenient and allowed me to focus more on the plane and the world around it. The DC Pro-X also had individually adjustable speaker volume, and I found the control module to be less bulky and slightly lighter than the Bose A20ís, though the Bose definitely had the aesthetic and ergonomic advantage.

The speakers themselves were the dentist-office-green I associate with old fashioned aviation equipment, and had a slightly busier appearance, due to the cords and wires being exposed (as is most common). The Bose A20ís will spoil you, because the cords are built inside the structure of the headset band, giving it a very sleek, modern appearance. Though Iím not personally a fan of the appearance of the DC Pro-X aviation headset, it is very reminiscent of classic aviators wearing leather caps and bomber jackets, which definitely has its appeal.
