Designed for the professional pilot, the new Bose ProFlight is the smallest and most comfortable aviation headset Bose has ever produced, with many new features designed specifically for airline and corporate aircraft flight decks.

New features include three user selectable levels of noise cancellation, a unique tap control for talk-through communication and quick release, side-swappable boom microphone and down cable. All engineered into a form factor unlike any other headset—a highly stable, in-ear configuration without the usual intrusive deep-insert eartips. The new Bose ProFlight is FAA TSO and EASA E/TSO-C139a certified. Now there’s a Bose aviation headset that is right for you, whether you fly in a cockpit or on a flight deck.

Bose ProFlight Aviation Headset:

  • Improved comfort for hours of use, achieved through choice of materials, distribution of weight, low clamping force and dedicated left and right earbuds – all without sacrificing stability.
  • Incredibly small and lightweight (4.9 oz / 139 g on-head).
  • Electret noise cancelling microphone for clear transmissions.
  • Audio optimized with active equalization for enhanced communications with or without an intercom or hot mic system.
  • Three unique levels of user selectable acoustic noise cancelling providing users with a range of noise reduction to meet their needs in multiple scenarios.
  • Tap control for talk-through communication.
  • Bluetooth capable for wireless audio connections to EFBs and mobile phones, with audio prioritization to mix or mute wireless audio with intercom transmissions.
  • Bypass communications mode provides primary ICS audio with or without power to the headset
  • Built to latest ARINC standards and FAA TSO and EASA E/TSO-C139a certified.
  • Available with twin plug, 5 pin XLR, 7 pin XLR or 6 pin LEMO plug configurations.
  • Auto-off: All configurations of the ProFlight Headset feature auto-off technology which powers down the headset when not in use and saves battery life.
  • Side-swappable boom microphone and down cable, no tool required.
  • Durable and robust design made to endure the wear and tear of everyday use in tough environments.
  • Three-year limited warranty with acclaimed service.
  • Auto-on: Certain configurations of the ProFlight Headset will turn on automatically when the avionics master switch is in the on position, using the ship’s power to operate.

The Bose Connect App, for Apple and Android, is free to download. The app is not necessary or required for headset operation but it does provide unique functionality to the Proflight including: Music/Audio share Easy connecting and renaming of connected Bluetooth devices Product tour and troubleshooting info Periodic updates to provide additional capability.

Didn't live up to the hype

  • By Andrew from Blackwood Caerphilly United Kingdom on Friday, October 12, 2018
  • Pros: Liked the tap through bit
  • Review: My day job is seat number one left on the ERJ 145 and I've been using my faithful Bose A20's for a few years now. Recently, I read with great excitement there was a new contender for the role of 'defender of my ears' in the Bose camp. The new Bose ProFlight.

    In September I happened to be in America and took the opportunity to purchase a set. Following my return to Nigeria where I contract fly, I was excited to try out my new purchase. I lasted a week before returning to my old A20's

    Before I go into why, I think it's fair to say Nigerian ATC is horrendous and does involve a lot of 'say again'

    My main issue is the mic, I found I had to use my left hand to move the mic almost into my mouth to be heard. I also found, even using the smallest buds that my ears were sore. Finally, a small point but its also fiddle to fit back in the case at the end of a long day

    Overall, maybe it will work for bigger jets but not for regionals.

Overpriced.

  • By Bambirelo from Garner NC USA on Wednesday, October 10, 2018
  • Pros: Excellent audio listening.
  • Review: The headset are definitely not confortable to wear after a couple of hours, the cable is very stiff and gets annoyingly in your way with head movements. The double tap feature gets activated with a slam on the cckpit door of the folding table on airbus, the noise reduction in high cancelling position is great, the other two positions are useless. The good, very clear ATC radio even at lowest volume, Bluetooth works fantastic for listening music or movies.

Overkill. Awesome product

  • By Charlie5 from Philippines on Tuesday, October 09, 2018
  • Pros: Goodlooking headset with quality sound
  • Review: I've been using my Bose Proflight for a month now and so far I am very pleased with it. It's a very good looking headset and the sound quality is what you would expect from a Bose product. It takes a few flight to get fully used to wearing it. The cable is a bit heavy but not a deal breaker. The noise reduction is a bit overkill in a quiet cockpit such as the A320. You absolutely do not hear anything in high setting. I have mine set at medium with one earbud fully in and the other halfway out. For me this works the best. Overall its a great headset and another quality product from Bose

Great purchase

  • By A Customer from UAE on Wednesday, October 03, 2018
  • Pros: Quality of the product is amazing
  • Review: Meet my expectations. High quality headset. So happy with it.

  • Review: Great headset.

Just great

  • By A Customer from Mission TX USA on Saturday, September 15, 2018
  • Pros: Light, great looking, works as expected being a bose
  • Review: An excellent and comfortable headset, my plane is not as quite as others and still works great.

Positive overall with a couple of small annoyances

  • By David from Middle East on Wednesday, September 12, 2018
  • Pros: Light and comfortable, great audio levels. Blue tooth works well as well
  • Review:

    I fly the Airbus A380, the cockpit is relatively quiet, but my hearing is deteriorating slightly over time. The pro when I first used it was a little different than a normal headsets. Firstly the buds took some time to get used to as fitting them takes practice. But after several long trips now I don't notice them and tend to use just the left one for the radio. The right one clips neatly onto the head pad and is out of the way. I now only have the radio volume at 1/4 instead of the ear splitting 3/4 to full before. I am not missing any calls and am able to hear the ATC instructions/replies very clearly. I have worn it continuously for 9 hrs and not felt any discomfort to the side or top of my head. Overall very happy but took several trips to work it out.

    The worst thing about it is the thick heavy lead that is attached to a super light weight headset. Whoever thought that was a good idea obviously never used it. After several attempts to secure the cable in different places I have found that it needs to be clipped forward of your head as the exit point of the cable from the headset near the microphone point is angled forward??? By clipping the cable to the left hand window sun screen anchor point it now gives an unimpeded movement when reaching across the cockpit to adjust FCU inputs or look at the overhead without the cable pulling the headset off. Bose really didn't do that well.

    Packing it back into its carry case after use is like wrestling a mad python into a bag!! But you do have to practice this too. For $900 it should be a bit more straight forward.

    The "tap" function is only marginally acceptable as it tends to also amplify the ambient noise as well as the voice your trying to hear. (Which is more why the right one stays stowed when the interphone is not being used)

    Overall I love it, a A couple of niggles, but I can wear it for hours and I don't feel as tired listening to the radio over India belching nerve tingling noise constantly for hours.
