If I had the money I would. I have an ANR headset, don't recall the brand, got a good deal on it along with another headset used. Been using the ANR for my training.

Is there a huge difference between the ANR and the standard passive noise reduction? I've never used an ANR headset before but i've read you can't even compare the two ... i dont know how accurate that is because i've read that in catalogs that sell the headsets and of course they want to sell a $1000 headset more than a $300 headset

I've used the new series Bose (X) since it came out. First in a BE99 cargo plane, very loud and now it a nice insulated Kingair, still way to loud without headsets. My company funishes the bose headsets, 1 in each plane but I still use my own cause I think sharing headsets is kind of like sharing underwear. You just have to hear the difference between active and passive to believe the difference. You flip the switch and all the low frequency noise just goes away. The first time I heard it I thought it was magic.

Some people (those who've never tried active headsets of course) used to bag on them because they said you wouldn't be able to hear the engines or what ever was making noises that shouldn't be there. Well wrong!! The active headsets let you hear weird noises better than ever. It's really hard to explain how nice active headsets are. I think Bose has a test flight program where you can try them then return if you don't like em.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

I bet you get them faster than 7 days anyway. Bose is back east where you are. Everytime I've deal with Bose they shipped at least 2nd day regardless of what I paid. Bose is a class act for sure.

I used DC 10-30's for years with a Sigtronics intercom. Health issues have kept me out of the air for about 6 years now. Sometimes I think of selling my two sets and the intercom, but I just can't let go.

The Navy / USMC bought them for use on P-3 and C-130 aircraft. They seem to work well when the doors are open. Feedback from the fleet has been positive so far. Price sucks. However, your taxdollars could be spend on much worse.

you know i've always loved my bose x's, but they're so heavy(just like any other regular aviation headset).

i did a little searching and well these work just as good as the bose x's, but weigh less than half! it's really quite nice to have the lightweight factor.

you need a pair of the bose qc2's, then you get the mic adapter from that place.

I've had off-brand ANR sets and still own my Bose set. Both are better than passive sets, but IMO Bose is clearly superior in the environment of a C-172N, '79 model. Never had the opportunity to try a REALLY high-dollar set. After several hours at the time in the seat, a good ANR set really reduces the fatigue level in a recip single; not to mention the much greater safety due to fewer misunderstood radio calls. No more "Say again, Center".
The funny thing to watch is when a pilot pulls back to low power on short final and most of the airframe vibration goes away the first couple of times wearing a good ANR set. The mouth drops open and the right hand goes forward because he thinks the engine just quit!

Love my Bose!

The Bose are nice, but not there are downsides to them. The biggest for me is what was mentioned before, they are big and heavy, and have a pretty good clamping effect after a few hours. I have the Bose and a set of Sennheiser HMEC25. The Sennheisers are every bit as quiet as the Bose, and you don't even notice that they are on they are so light. They are a vastly superior design. The only downside I see to them versus the Bose is my Baron is wired for the Bose, so no batteries, and I gotta keep AAs around for the Sennheisers.

This is in all sorts of aircraft that I notice the difference, I used them all through my flight training until today (had them about 7 years now), so all the various Cessnas and Pipers, a Grumman I used to fly with the canopy open, Bonanzas, up through twins (Seminoles, Senecas, Barons), even some time in a Twin Otter. The Sennheiser is just a better headset.

I'm sending my Bose in for a warrenty fix job after owning and flying them for the last 3 yrs, and the thought of spending a week in my old David Clarks is depressing. I debated ordering anouther set of Bose X in my wifes name for the 30 day trial period while mine are in the shop but I'll just suffer through.

The Sennheisers are HMEC25, on their site they have a bunch of different variations on the HMEC25, I have no idea which one I have, I've had them for nearly 7 years now. I imagine the different variations are just different plug configurations etc. They are listed at around $800 on the Sennheiser site.

do you actually fly or you're just saying that because you dont like the brand?

As for the weight they should be better than my current headset ... i have the David Clark h10-20 for the last couple years which are 19oz ... the Bose are only 12oz .... ill have to wait and see ... hopefully i get them before next weekend
