In 1978 Dr Amar Bose had an inspiration during a noisy international airline flight. At that time, to enhance passenger entertainment, electronic headphones were replacing older pneumatic tube phones. Unfortunately the fidelity improvements were masked by cabin noise—and the distortion caused by passengers increasing the volume to overcome the noise. Dr Bose believed it was possible to achieve noise reduction in headphones by means of closed-loop feedback control.
He quickly initiated a research program to study the array of complex acoustic, electronic and mechanical challenges to developing practical active noise cancellation headsets. This research eventually led to the development of Bose consumer headphones and military headsets. Today the A20 aviation headset is used on a variety of military aircraft and other weapon systems in the United States and throughout the world.
Presenting the most advanced Bose aviation headset yet. 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 sets an entirely new standard. It's 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.
It also features a Bluetooth® communications interface, an auxiliary audio input and priority switching. It's made in the US, and meets or exceeds all TSO requirements. No other headset can deliver this advanced combination of benefits.
Please contact Bose to discuss your application and to receive an evaluation headset for yourself and your unit.
