The Bose A20 Aviation Headset is the most technologically advanced Bose headset ever!

Bose was the first to introduce active noise reducing headsets to aviation more than 20 years ago, forever changing the way pilots fly. Now, the Bose A20 Aviation Headset introduces an entirely new standard.

The Bose A20 Headset has been engineered for significantly increased noise reduction in even louder environments. With an improved degree of comfort you’ll appreciate. All without compromising the clear audio you expect from Bose. Plus, it has a Bluetooth communications interface for both cell phone and music, auxiliary audio input and priority switching. It meets or exceeds all FAA TSO requirements. No other headset can deliver this advanced combination of benefits. Even the Battery Box has been designed for greater comfort and control!

Now with wireless Bluetooth music and cell phone support!

Bose A20 Aviation Headset Key Benefits and Technology:

  • Significantly greater noise reduction for pilots than currently available.
  • Improved level of comfort achieved through choice of materials, distribution of weight throughout the headset
  • 1/3 less clamping force than most conventional noise reducing aviation headsets, and additional room for the ears.
  • Clear audio for enhanced communications.
  • Bluetooth audio and communications interface for connectivity with your communications and navigation devices - NEW in 2015 Streaming Cell Phone and Music!
  • Auxiliary audio input, also included by Bose for the first time!
  • Priority switching so pilots can decide which audio source they want to hear.
  • At least 40 hours of typical headset use from just two AA alkaline batteries.
  • All this, and these headsets still weigh only 12 ounces.
  • 5-Year Warranty

I fly Chinooks in Afghanistan and this headset is better than a David Clark.

  • By Stuart from International Falls MN USA on Friday, November 16, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: This headset meets expectations, you don’t get the popping noise with the Bose.

Simply the best

  • By Jorge from Miami FL USA on Friday, October 05, 2018
  • Pros: Noise reduction absolutely amazing
  • Review: It's absolutely amazing! When you put the headsets and turn them on it's like the rest of the world is gone. Noise reduction is really fabulous. I stoped having trouble of listening to the ATC, everybody can hear me. It?s an investment you should really do if you pay pilot or want to become one. Don't waste your money buying something else because you'll end up buying these Bose. The best part is that you can buy all the spare parts like ear pads etc. these are headsets for life!

If Your Serious...

  • By Bo Pilot from Stuart FL USA on Thursday, October 04, 2018
  • Pros: comfortable, noise cancelling is great, easy of use, excellent clarity
  • Review: This is the second set of the A20's I have bought. Left and right front seats are now all Bose. Great headset, best one's I have found that retains their noise cancelling capabilities when wearing glasses or sun glasses. All of the features are solid and easy to use. I purchased two other top brands first and was not satisfied with either of them. Would have been smarter to go with the A20's right off the bat. Almost all of my flight instructors had them, must have been something to their choice!

Amazing headset

  • By A Customer from Scottsdale AZ USA on Monday, September 17, 2018
  • Pros: Noise cancelation, Microphone output, controllability of the in-line controller
  • Review: The difference between this headset and any other borrowed headsets from my flight school was staggering. The noise cancellation is top of the line and the output from the microphone is borderline perfect.

You get what you pay for !!

  • By Milosz from New Britain CT USA on Monday, September 17, 2018
  • Pros: clear sound comfortable easy to use sleek look Zero noise
  • Review: Everything they say about this headset is true and it lives up to its reputation. I would have got it during my private days if I knew how good it is! The ATC is crisp the music from the Bluetooth is crisp the headset is comfortable I dont even know if I'm wearing one that's how soft it is! The controller is simple to use and the ear cups are super soft I love this headset. Most important this is my first noise cancelling headset and it?s just breath taking how quiet the surrounding is it's total silence makes me smile every time!! Worth every penny paid for it. 10/10 product ! Thanks Bose!!!!

  • By Herman from Victorville CA USA on Thursday, September 13, 2018
  • Pros: Comfortable & light
  • Review: The head set is amazing how clear the transmission & how well it blocks out the back ground noice

Worth the Trade-In

  • By Gary from Chatham MA USA on Wednesday, June 20, 2018
  • Pros: Clear, quiet, reliable
  • Review: Traded my DC ProX for the A20, receiving a $500 credit. Literally using the A20 made me feel like I had just upgraded my entire radio. Great clarity, blue tooth phone calls are now much more reliable. Great quiet both because of noise reduction feature and great fit of the ear piece. Very comfortable. Have the Lemo 6 pin connector, so power comes from the panel, blue tooth still requires batteries. But auto-on and auto-off options insures just that, so inadvertent power on is avoided after engine shutdown. Wish I could trust a wireless design, but I can't with everything else wireless already going on in the cockpit. So I'm good with the cord. Would buy it again.

  • Thursday, October 11, 2012

    Q: Hi can i purchase the A20 with a plug for the airbus? is it battery powered, or aircraft powered? bluetooth? thnks

    A: To get the Bose A20 with the XLR plug for Airbus, you would need to purchase the Bose A20 Headset without a cable assembly and then purchase the Bose A20 Cable Assembly with Bluetooth - Straight Cord, XLR Connector for Airbus. It is a 67" cable that includes an electret microphone with a Bluetooth control module. No batteries required and it is also FAA TSO'ed.

  • Monday, June 25, 2012

    Q: With the fixed wing 2 cable setup, do you need batteries for ANR to work or would being plugged into the comm system power ANR?

    A: Yes, two AA batteries would be required.  The batteries will power the ANR system as well as the Bluetooth system.  

  • Tuesday, June 05, 2012

    Q: Does the helicopter version have a coiled cord?

    A: No, Bose no longer makes any headset with a coiled cord.  On their old model (the Bose X) they did offer a coiled cord version, but when they introduced the Bose A20 they only offer straight cord for everything.  The helicopter version is a straight cord with a single U-174/U plug.

  • Wednesday, February 08, 2012

    Q: I am planning to buy Bose A20 with blue tooth. I want the ability to use in aircraft with dual plugs as well as with Redel connector. Can you recommend how should I proceed?

    A: If you want to be able to use it with both panel powered (Redel) and non-powered (dual plugs), we would recommend that you get the Bose A20 headset that is panel powered and the Bose A20 6-pin Redel to Fixed Wing Adapter.    This allows you to use it in a panel powered aircraft without any adapters and then when you are using it in an aircraft that does not have a Redel connector, you just need to add the adapter and AA batteries to the battery box.

  • Wednesday, December 14, 2011

    Q: description states that it meets/exceeds TSO certification; but ARE they TSO certified? My airline requires TSO certification.

    A: Yes, these ARE FAA C-139 TSO Certified and acceptable for use in all USA based airlines.

  • Thursday, September 01, 2011

    Q: Is the A20 compatible with my Blackberry Bluetooth cell phone?

    A: Any mobile phone enabled with Bluetooth technology will work via Bluetooth connectivity.

  • Saturday, June 11, 2011

    Q: Is there an adaptor for your A20 set so that I can use the set for Helecopter flying as well as fixed wing plane flying?

    A: Sure!  If you get the fixed wing model of the Bose A20, then you would need the Fixed Wing to Helicopter adapter.  If you get the Helicopter version of the Bose A20, then you would need the Helicopter to Fixed Wing adapter.  The other option would be to get a second cable assembly for the Bose A20.  We have the Bose A20 Fixed Wing cable assembly and the Bose A20 Helicopter cable assembly.

  • Monday, February 07, 2011

    Q: I'm thinking of getting the Redel connector version of the A20 w/bluetooth and buying a 2-plug adapter at the same time to have the greatest range of connection options. As the Redel version is aircraft powered and the 2-plug battery powered will I lose functionality if I use the Redel version via adapter in a 2-plug aircraft? I'm assuming the Redel version does not have batteries at all so must get power from the Redel connector...which I'm assuming it won't get when plugging into a 2-plug setup. Could be a dumb question but if you could clear it up for me I'd appreciate it. I'd hate to buy the Redel version only to find out that noise cancellation won't work if I go into a 2-plug airplane. Thanks.

    A: All of the Bose A20 headsets, including the panel powered version (Redel connector) have a battery box.  The battery box on the panel powered version is only used to power the bluetooth functionality and the power for the ANR comes from the aircraft electrical system.   If you purchase the panel powered A20 headset and the Bose A20 6-pin Redel to Fixed Wing Adapter you will be able to use the A20 in an aircraft equipped with the Redel connector and then, using the adapter, use it in an aircraft with the standard dual plugs.  When you use it with the adapter, the batteries will power both the bluetooth and the ANR functionality. 

  • Monday, January 24, 2011

    Q: Can I listen to my MP3 player wirelessly via Bluetooth?

    A: No, the Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity is for communications only. You can, however, plug your MP3 player into the AUX jack to hear your music.

  • Monday, January 17, 2011

    Q: This may be a dumb Q, but will the headset and mic work when not connected to the airplane, i.e., can I talk on my phone via bluetooth when I want to exit the plane and stay on my call?

    A: Not a dumb question at all.  Yes, you can use this outside of an aircraft to talk on a cell phone as long as there are batteries installed.
