Bose A20 Pilot
The A20 Aviation Headset continues the Bose tradition of excellence, reducing more noise than ever before.

Enjoy a quieter flight

Proprietary technologies in the A20 Aviation Headset reduce noise, across the full spectrum of human hearing, in even louder environments. Advanced electronics use microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and reduce ambient sound.

Bose ear cushion technology helps further reduce unwanted noise. Unique cushion materials block sound before it enters the earcups, providing a quieter headset experience.


And greater comfort

The A20 Aviation Headset also provides significant comfort and stability. The overall headset profile is compact, and the earcup cavity is large enough to allow more room for the ears. The proprietary cushions improve the earcups' acoustic seals, even over eyeglasses, and remain comfortable during long flights. The solid magnesium headband is extremely durable, yet lightweight, and its sheepskin cushion eliminates hot spots. The A20 headset weighs just 12 ounces and exerts approximately 1/3 less clamping force than most active headsets.

Bose A20 Comfort
Ear cushions stay comfortable even during long flights. And the headband's sheepskin cushion eliminates hot spots.

AUX IN and Bluetooth technology convenience

The control module includes an auxiliary audio input with Intercom/AUX priority switching. Many pilots will want to use this input for dedicated GPS and traffic warning systems. You can set audio priority to mute the AUX input completely when intercom signal is detected, or to simply lower the AUX volume appropriately.

Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity allows you to receive calls wirelessly while wearing the A20 headset. And its EMI protection helps minimize interference from the mobile phone. Plus, the headset's integrated sidetone provides natural sounding communications when you're on a call and disconnected from the intercom.
