The Bose A30 Aviation Headset is the most comfortable and full-featured around-ear headset Bose has ever created. As the first-ever around-ear aviation headset with three modes of user selectable active noise cancellation, it dramatically improves every flight experience. The A30 is the best combination of comfort, audio clarity and active noise cancellation available on the market. Plus, its lightweight design is FAA TSO and EASA/TSO-C139a certified, proving its durability, even in the toughest conditions.

The Bose A30 Aviation headset harnesses the power of sound to transform the flying experience. With unmatched comfort and three modes of active noise cancellation, the A30 was designed to strip away distractions and let you focus on being the best pilot you can be. Because no matter the aircraft, there’s nothing like the freedom of flight.

Bose A30 Aviation Headset Key Benefits and Technology:

  • Lightweight design with low clamping force for unparalleled comfort. A full-sized around-ear headset with 20% less clamping force than the A20.
  • Unmatched audio clarity with active equalization. Incoming signals are shaped and equalized for enhanced clarity and intelligibility.
  • Industry-leading active noise reduction with three user selectable modes. Adjustable noise cancellation modes to accommodate different use cases or personal preference.
  • Precision-focused noise cancelling microphone. The noise cancelling microphone is engineered for aircraft with “hot mic” or PTT systems to increase clarity and reduce background noise during transmission. Mic winglets also allow for precise mic and boom adjustments.
  • Robust, durable design that is FAA TSO and EASA E/TSO-C139a certified. The headset is FAA/EASA TSO certified and has passed 145 separate tests by the Bose engineering and quality assurance team to ensure endurance in challenging operating environments.
  • Removable/Side swappable down cable and mic, no tools required. Boom mic and cable can be mounted on either side of the headset without using any tools.
  • Bluetooth audio. Connect wirelessly to mobile devices, audio systems and electronic flight bags. Audio prioritization allows users to mix Bluetooth audio with intercom audio or have intercom transmissions mute Bluetooth temporarily. A non-Bluetooth headset variant is also available.
  • Shielded, durable and flexible cable. Cable is resistant to radiated emissions with a thin design that allows for increased freedom of movement and easy storage.
  • Digital active noise cancellation. Significantly reduces ambient noise, allowing users to lower radio volume to a more comfortable listening level.
  • Long term durability. Built and tested for extended use in demanding environments, having passed 145 separate tests by the Bose research and development team to ensure headset endurance.
  • Tap control for talk-through communication. Double-tap either earcup to engage low mode and optimize audio for interpersonal communications outside of the intercom.
  • Automatic shutoff. Powers down automatically when not in use. An auto-on feature is also available on select panel-powered configurations.
  • Exceptional battery life. Two AA batteries power 25-plus hours of Bluetooth use and 45-plus hours without. Aircraft-powered variants are also available.
  • Bypass communications mode. Primary intercom audio is available with or without power.
  • Five-year limited warranty with acclaimed service. Worldwide coverage (excludes wear items like ear cushions, mic covers and headbands).
  • Carrying case. Includes a strap and an internal zippered storage compartment and enhanced padding for safe and secure storage.

  • By on Friday, February 02, 2024
  • Pros:
  • Review: Finally a solution to the useless intercom that no one uses on loud, legacy Boeing aircraft! The three levels of noise cancellation and the Tap Control for talk-through communications are everything I'd hoped they would be. Nice job Bose. My only complaint, albeit minor, would be to make the headband cushions larger and more comfortable.

Great Headset

  • By A Customer from Pueblo West CO USA on Wednesday, January 24, 2024

  • Review: The Bose A-30 is everything that I expected it to be. Lightweight, low clamping force but still fits snug, great sound quality and noise cancelling. It's worth every penny!

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
  • 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.

Bose A30 nice but not a good upgrade from A20

  • By Dale from Scottsdale, AZ on Friday, April 21, 2023
  • Pros: high quality headset
  • Review: I love the quality of my A20 and thought I would give the A30 a try. While it is lighter than the A20, it was hard to notice while wearing them. Also, to me the sound was a little tinnier than the 20 and there was a slight hiss when talking. All in all it is a high quality headset, but I just didn't think it was a worthwhile upgrade from the A20.

    Hope this helps

They are an upgrade from the A20s

  • By A Customer on Tuesday, April 11, 2023
  • Pros: Lighter feel (even though they might not be), more comfortable ear cups, better audio quality than the A20s
  • Review: I'm a relatively low time pilot and been flying with the A20s with BT, and upgraded to the A30s. The first thing I noticed was that they feel less bulky on the head, and as other reviewers have said, the pressure from the new headband is much less.
    The microphone quality is definitely better (based on how my GoPro recordings sound)

Very long cord and excess packaging

  • By A Customer from Georgetown, TX on Wednesday, April 05, 2023
  • Pros: Good build quality, excellent ANR.
  • Review: Headset itself is as advertised. Nicely finished, good ANR and function. For some reason, the cord on the GA two-plug version is about 18" longer than that on the A20. Just more cord jumble to sort out in the cockpit.

    The packaging is awful. Box inside a box inside a box. The second-level box cannot be opened; it must be surgically removed.

    I still have no idea of the purpose of the rubber keeper for the control module.
