The NEW 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 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!

Bose A20 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.
  • 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

Love those Bose

  • By Joe from Wolfforth TX USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Works great.
  • Review: All Bose headsets are great. I think this is my sixth.

Great headsets

  • By Jimmie from Cedar Park TX USA on Wednesday, October 03, 2018
  • Pros: Great ANR
  • Review: Tried five different headsets. A20 far better than everything else.

  • By John F from Hilton Head Island SC USA on Tuesday, April 24, 2018
  • Pros: Works well
  • Review: As expected

Excellent product, even better service

  • By Jim the Fokker flier from Quinns Rocks WA Australia on Friday, December 08, 2017
  • Pros: Great noise reduction, well built
  • Review: Really excellent noise reduction and seems to be made to last. The headset does seem a little heavy after about 3 hours or so in the air. Service from mypilotstore was outstanding. They really went the extra mile with my order, facilitating an exchange from 1/2 a world away.

  • By on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: I've been using this model for 4 years. It's been doing great even though the leather part has to be replaced when it's worn out..

Bose did it again

  • By Carl-Erik from Cameron Park CA USA on Wednesday, October 25, 2017
  • Pros: A very good buy. High quality and excellent performance.
  • Review: I traded in our nice Bose X and choose Bose A20. We fly a wonderful and noisy 1947 KZ7, a tube, wood and fabric tailwheeler. The engine is a 6-cylinder with tuned exhaust, no mufflers. The ANR (Active Noise Reduction) was considerable on the older Bose X between not-on and on, like 1 to 2. To experience the difference of the old Bose X (ANR-on) with the new Bose A20 (ANR-on) is like another 1 to 2. Just amazing. The audio is much better and the clamping force is less. I do not know anything about other brands and their performance. I will stay with Bose, it is comfortable and worth the money.

10 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Saturday, June 25, 2016

    Q: What model of Bose headset should I use for MD500E type of Helicopter?

    A: I would recommend option 3. It will have the single U174U plug that can be used in the MD 500E.

  • Sunday, June 09, 2013

    Q: Is this headset compatible with boeing 777 and 737 Style cockpits?

    A: Yes, you would want to get option 1: Fixed Wing Portable that will have the standard dual plugs that can be used on virtually all civilian Boeing aircraft.

  • Tuesday, May 28, 2013

    Q: Can I plug in my IPhone and listen to music? Does the music cut out when a radio transmission is received? Can I make a phone call, talk and listen when plugged in?

    A: Yes, you would just use the included 3.5mm patch cable to connect to the headset jack of your iPhone.  Once connected, you will be able to make/receive phone calls and listen to music on the Bose A20.  When you receive an ATC transmission, the AUX (phone or music) will cut out and then fade back in after a second or two of radio silence.  There is a DIP switch on the Bose A20 that allows you to override that so that the AUX never cuts out but that's not usually recommended.

  • Tuesday, February 19, 2013

    Q: Will the Bose A20 Military Model 324843-0130 work with the C-130 Hercules?

    A: Yes, the Military Model (option 4) with the 5-ohm Dynamic Mic will work on the C-130 Hercules.

  • Saturday, March 24, 2012

    Q: Is this headset compatible with Airbus A320 style cockpits?

    A: To use the Bose A20 in the Airbus A320, you would need to get the fixed wing portable version.  That will have the standard dual plugs that you need to them convert to the XLR-5 that is used in the Airbus with the Fixed Wing Headset to Airbus Adapter

  • Saturday, February 11, 2012

    Q: Is there any adapter for this model to be used in both fixed wing and helicopters. Can I directly use it with my IPod, Mac or mp3?

    A: Sure, you can use either the Fixed Wing to Helicopter or the Helicopter to Fixed Wing adapter depending on which model you get to convert it back and forth.  Or, you can even get an entire new cable assembly if you don't want to use an adapter. 

    Yes, you will be able to listen to music with this Bose A20 model, it would just be connected through the headset jack on your cell phone/MP3 player instead of wireless.

  • Friday, July 22, 2011

    Q: What's the difference between the battery powered and the panel powered? And are both dual plugged?

    A: The battery powered headset has the standard dual male plugs that can be used in almost all fixed wing aircraft.  It is powered exclusively by the AA batteries in the battery box. The panel powered version requires you to have a special 6-pin Redel connector (also known as a LEMO) installed in your aircraft.  It does not use the standard dual male plugs that you are probably used to seeing.  This version gets the ANR power directly from the aircraft electrical system and gets the power for the bluetooth from the battery box.  If in doubt, the battery powered version is usually the best choice.

  • Tuesday, May 31, 2011

    Q: What is the actual db reduction?

    A: The Bose A20 Aviation Headset provides significant improvements in both active and passive noise reduction technologies, which provide more attenuation in louder environments and across a wider range of frequencies.  However, Bose does not make claims about the level of noise reduction because a single number cannot tell you much about what you will hear when you use the headset.  We encourage you to give the Bose A20 a try in a variety of aircraft to experience the noise reduction for yourself.  If you're not 100% happy, you can return it for a full refund.

  • Thursday, May 12, 2011

    Q: Does this headset come with its own Bose headset case?

    A: Yes, a Bose carrying case is included with the Bose A20.

  • Tuesday, August 17, 2010

    Q: Does this headset have 2 prong to fit two way radio? (one prong thicker and longer than the other.)

    A: Yes, the Fixed Wing Portable model does have the standard dual aviation jacks that you describe.
