Good headset but not as good as A20

  • By Carl the Seneca Pilot from Long Beach, CA on Thursday, December 14, 2023
  • Pros: Nice design and construction
  • Cons: Sound quality not as good as A20
  • Review: I bought one of these when my A20 quit. While the design and built of the A30 is quite good, the audio quality is not quite as good as the A20, particularly if you are pumping in music through the intercom. Oddly, the bluetooth sound quality is excellent, but somehow the analog electronics degrade the audio quality of music coming in through the headphone jack. The sound is tinny, with rolled off highs, and no bass. I did a side by side comparison with my wife's A20, and the A20 is by far better. Also, the three levels of noise cancelling are a little silly. I can't imagine ever using anything but "high". If you can get an A20, it is a better headset, at a better price.
