well sennehauser & bose are two different brands ... so whichever you prefer ... you'd want to get the ones with the batteries which are portable ... id also recommend the straight cord ... i've had equipment with the coiled cord and hated it

I just looked at Sennheiser.com and it shows different headsets for piston, twin pressurized cabin, and jet powered headsets for each type of aircraft, so I guess I'd go with thbose since it will last me from college to the airlines w/o having to get a new one for each type of plane....

My company just purchased two Bose headsets. These were purchased specifically for our international trip to Russia, China and Japan. They were well worth the cost. The ability to cut out the noise and be able to hear the controllers was amazing. It allowed us to concentrate on what they were saying in their version of English and get rid of the background noise.

It was strange at first not being able to hear the wind noise across the cockpit windows. But you get used to that part.

Overall an excellent investment.

Don't kid yourself and think that you'll be sitting on the flight deck of a 767 wearing a huge pair of Bose. When you are flying for the airlines you will not be using a Bose ANR or any kind of ANR set, you'll use something like a Telex. The cockpits in the airliners are quiet, and the pilots generally use a single earpiece with a boom mic.

If you go through the categories at Sennheiser, they have the same headsets in each category, with the lower categories having the lower priced and larger headsets. Get whatever you want, they are all good. Mine were purchased 7 years ago from the Delta company store where they sell the pilots uniforms and other equipment, and have been great. The only issue with them that I've found is I lent them to my father when his telex broke and he had a trip (He's a 767 captain flying international). When he got back he said that it was too quiet in the cockpit for them, and it made it seem dead silent, so he could hear clearly every time his first officer turned the page of his newspaper, or shifted in his seat, and that was annoying. So he turned off the ANR and it was back to normal.

You can use them for a home stereo system, the headphone part is a regular jack like on the front of most stereos. You'd look like a tool sitting in your living room with a headset on, but it'd work.

Thanks Nick. For home use would they be much better than just a very good set of headphones?

Honestly, I have no idea, I just know that they will work. It actually works the other way around too, back when I was younger my father had a V35 Bonanza and we had to take a couple passengers and didn't have enough headsets, and we stuck one of the guys in the back with a pair of Pioneer headphones. He couldn't talk, but he could hear.

haha thats funny ... i just noticed that ... i originally wasnt going to buy them yet but they have a pretty good payment plan on their site ... For the downpayment you pay 1/12th ($82) + tax and shipping and handling ... then every month for the next 11 months they just charge another $82 to your credit card ... so i figured what the hell

I bought a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 2 headphones for work while I am in the office analyising video footage. They are fantastic. It allows me to concentrate in my own little world. They are also great on holiday flights as well as home use.

Then when i'm flying I use an Alpha helmet whilst working on low level patrols, but when i'm in my R44 during playtime I opted for the Bose X. I started with a regular Peltor headset then knowing what the Bose QC2's were like I bought the X's.

Only prob i've had was a very loud burring noise which blocked out all intercom speech. But I've since eliminated that to my instructor leaving his mobile phone on and all has been fine since.

I feel Bose v's Sennhiesers is down to individual taste.

I have both the Bose X and the Lightspeed 30-3G and the Bose is more comfortable for a long flight, short flights either one cuts the noise. i'm fixing to try the Panther haedset with the speaker in one ear and the mike in the other ear, passive 46 db. no headset just plugs in your ear (like the Nascar drivers wear). i like my Bose, Ron

Please cancel my clearance, I have the field in sight. Got my RW Turbine Waiver, need lottery!

They learned alot from bose before they brought out the X11's. Now they have comparable battery life, auto shut-off and a more comfortable, lighter design. The one feature the DC X11's have that my Bose X's don't have is the audio input, nice touch there. If I were in the market again I would look at the x11's.

I still have no regrets for laying out the cash for my bose, and to me thats the bottom line in value is when you look at a unit do you see the cash spent and sigh, or do you say, I'd buy it again.

yea, the audio input is nice, but reviews say the dc x11 is crappier than the bose, and you pay for comfort, not sound quality....how long have the bose 10x sets been out..? Is bose coming out with anything newer real soon..?

well my headset came today ... i was going to fly on friday but it looks like its going to snow so im going to have to wait until saturday ...

IMO they are extremely light and comfortable ... i wanted to test out the ANR so i substituted an extremely loud TV for my airplane and its cool as hell ... you can hear the TV one minute ... then you hit the button, wait a second, and then its like someone turned down the volume almost all the way ...

i wish i could go flying tonight

Dude....

I know how you feel. Our inversion has been bad here and visibity has been in the 1SM range.

Storm came in this morning and blew it all out. I am having withdrawls as we speak as I look out across the valley.

Going this Saturday if all bodes well.

You'll love the headset. Be prepared to start feeling the plane rather than hearing it. If something is wrong, you have to now sense it in your butt and back rather than hear it.

Enjoy.

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

The play with the ANR in different spots as it will filter out some sounds more then other, typically the lower pitch sounds. First time I played with mine was at a dock with outboard boats running nearby, and you hit the button and the motors fades away, but I could still here the water lapping at my floats.

Oh yeah be prepared for your plane to sound different, all the warnings will sound different. First time I pulled the engine to idle to land I thought it quit on me. Gotta love the technology.
