Bose pioneered active noise reducing headsets nearly 20 years ago, and pilots continue to prefer the Bose Aviation Headset X today. For eight years in a row, it's been rated #1 in Professional Pilot's annual survey, claiming 2008's top honors for clarity, comfort and technical advancement.
A rare combination of benefits distinguish Aviation Headset X from all other pilot headsets. Proprietary Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headset technology dramatically reduces the engine roar you hear in the cockpit. Small microphones in each earcup monitor ambient sound. Electronic circuitry identifies unwanted noise and creates an opposite signal to reduce it.
This advanced noise reduction technology combines with proprietary TriPort® acoustic headset structure and active equalization to provide quality audio from lightweight, compact earcups. A lighter and more compact headset structure allows Aviation Headset X to require significantly less clamping force than most noise reduction headsets.
The solid magnesium headband is also extremely lightweight, yet durable. A sheepskin cushion eliminates hot spots, and soft ear cushions provide an effective seal, even over glasses. You enjoy acclaimed Bose noise reduction in a comfortable headset weighing only 12 ounces.
The Bose proprietary AdaptiSense headset circuitry allows at least 40 hours of use from just two AA alkaline batteries. It supplies power as needed, detects when you've stopped wearing the headset and automatically shuts off the active electronics after you have finished flying to preserve battery life. The ergonomic control module puts this technology and all other features, including dual thumbwheel volume controls, within easy reach.
Features of your Bose Aviation X Headset:
Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headset technology
Only from Bose, this patented technology electronically identifies and reduces unwanted noise, allowing improved intelligibility of radio and intercom audio. The continuous roar of flying is reduced, so your concentration is improved.
TriPort® headset structure
Proprietary Bose® TriPort® acoustic headset structure, available only from Bose, that helps enable a smaller, more lightweight design. The small mass of air inside the TriPort vents makes for more efficient low-frequency noise reduction, and also helps block high-frequency noise from entering the earcup.
AdaptiSense® headset technology
Proprietary AdaptiSense headset circuitry delivers at least 40 hours of headset use from two AA alkaline batteries. It automatically adjusts voltage to maximize battery life and includes smart shutoff. An ergonomic control module puts this technology within easy reach.
Electronically tunes the frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance for improved speech intelligibility.
Magnesium alloy headband
Provides exceptionally strong, durable frame that's remarkably lightweight and comfortable.
Center torsion spring
