Bose is surely no stranger when it comes to high quality audio devices, speakers and headsets included. This time around, their latest addition to their range of audio products is the Bose ProFlight Aviation Headset, an all-new active noise cancelling headset for the flight deck. Specially designed for the professional pilot, the ProFlight lays claim to be the industry’s smallest, quietest, as well as most comfortable active noise cancelling communication headset to date. In fact, it holds over 30 U.S. design and utility patents, delivering a lightweight and comfortable in-ear configuration, a trio of user selectable levels of active noise cancellation and a tap control for talk-through communication function.
With the Bose ProFlight Aviation Headset, pilots are able to hear virtually anyone who is on the flight deck who are not connected to the intercom, all without having to remove the headset or an earpiece. Being FAA TSO C139a and EASA E/TSO-C139a certified, this is one particular requirement that has started to gain importance across numerous airlines as well as corporate flight departments.
The Bose ProFlight Aviation Headset is perfect for lower noise environments and caters to the unique needs of pilots who happen to fly in airline flight decks and corporate jet aircraft. It tips the scales at a mere 4.9 ounces when you wear it on your head, boasting of a forward-thinking form factor that will merge a lightweight headband for stability alongside an earbud configuration which will rest lightly and yet securely in the bowl of the ear. Such a design enables the headset to be worn comfortably for hours at a time.
The three user selectable levels of noise cancellation allows it to deliver clear audio and communications, whether it is with or without an intercom. This opens the door to optimize the performance of the headset to the current, unique environment. Expect the ProFlight Aviation Headset from Bose to retail for $995.95 apiece.
