Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Improved Over The Original I bought the original ProFlight when it first came out in 2018 and absolutely hated it. I used it for one trip and had to send it back. After a 3-hour flight, it gave me a massive headache. I finally decided to give the Series 2 a go. I'm so glad I did. I've flown 3 days and about 15 hours with it so far. The new cord design is quite improved. I don't feel the pressure or the hot spots anymore. It's extremely lightweight and comfortable. I fly the 737-800 and it's a perfect headset for this jet. I tried the A20s and they were too big and bulky for the Boeing's cockpit. I was previously using the David Clark DCProX, and while a nice headset, the on-ear design did get old after a long day and it didn't block out as much noise. I'm still working with getting the ear pieces to fit just right, but so far so good. The sound quality amazing. The mike is excellent. And, as stated above, it's a very comfortable headset. Even after a 6+ hour day, I don't really feel it. I highly recommend this headset for those that fly noisy jets. Thank you, Bose, for redesigning it so that it's useful and practical!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Great Design/Features, Bose Quality I have been flying with Bose aviation headsets for just over the last 5 years. My first Bose headset was the A20...which was truly lightyears ahead of my military-issued David Clark. The A20 was lighter, more comfortable (especially on grueling 24-hour flight duty periods), and you really couldn't beat the noise cancelling feature inside of the uninsulated military flight deck. Fast forward a couple of years now and I have changed airframes to something more "civilianized"...this translates into a much quieter flight deck. This is important because we no longer communicate over an ICS system, but just speak to each other in normal voices while moving a headset or earpiece out of the way. This brings me to the ProFlight Series 2 headset. Initially I was a little skeptical of the earpiece inserts, however they are comfortable (especially if you use something similar with your smartphone) and they really help keep out unwanted ambient noise allowing you to keep the volume turned down. I really like the "stow up" feature, which keeps the unused ear piece out of the way, yet it is also conveniently located when it is needed. The volume controls and Bluetooth connectivity are exactly what you would expect from a Bose product. I also like the storage case because I feel it is adequately protecting your investment while also not being too terribly bulky. It just takes a little practice to efficiently stow the cord...but if you are flying airplanes, chances are you can figure it out.

How is the ProFlight Series 2 different from the previous model?

We’ve made several improvements based on customer feedback. The most significant improvement is a thinner, lighter cable with much greater flexibility that provides improved comfort and stability and reduces on-head weight by 11 grams (0.4 ounces). Tap control for talk-through communication has been improved. The microphone boom now includes winglets to assist in correct mic alignment and adjustment. Finally, the carry case has been improved to aid in faster stowage and transportation with the addition of a hanging loop, carabiner and a more open internal design.

What is the difference between the ProFlight Series 2 and A30 headsets? Are they each appropriate for all types of aircraft?

They are completely different headsets and have different fundamental architectures, although they share features such as Bluetooth capability, selectable stereo/mono and auto-on/auto-off. The A30 features an around-ear design and is meant for noisier aircraft, such as non-pressurised single-engine models. The ProFlight Series 2 features a headbanded, in-ear design and is meant for crewed aircraft that are typically pressurised and less noisy, like most jets.

How many different versions and configurations are available for the ProFlight Series 2?

Customers can configure their ProFlight Series 2 Aviation Headsets in many ways. Customers have their choice of connector configurations with each module. Each connector configuration is available with Bluetooth®, and non-Bluetooth variants in dual-plug and 5-pin configurations. Designed for use in both civilian and military aircraft, the ProFlight Series 2 offers most common plug configurations:

Dual G/A plug (PJ 068 and 1/4-inch stereo): With this option, the headset is connected to the aircraft’s intercom via a dual plug and is not powered by the aircraft. Two AA alkaline batteries provide a minimum of 45 hours of operation while flying. This configuration is the most common version purchased by pilots.

XLR five pin: Often called the Airbus plug, this configuration is a mono connection to the aircraft and may be powered by the aircraft, depending on the installation. When disconnected, the flexible power feature lets the headset switch seamlessly from aircraft power to battery power, so users experience no interruption when the headset is plugged into or unplugged from a source of power.

Six-pin connector wired to the aircraft (LEMO): With this option, the headset is connected to the aircraft via a 6-pin connector and is powered directly from the aircraft. When disconnected, the flexible power feature switches the headset seamlessly from aircraft power to battery power, so users experience no interruption when the headset is plugged into or unplugged from the aircraft.*

*Adapters are available from Bose to convert a six-pin connector to either a dual G/A plug or a U174 for additional connection flexibility.

Can I comfortably wear glasses with the ProFlight Series 2?

Yes. The side pads rest slightly behind and above the ear, which allows you to put on and remove eyeglasses without touching the headset. You can wear almost any frames you want without sacrificing noise reduction or comfort.

Can I swap the microphone to either side?

Yes. The integrated boom mic and cable assembly can be attached to either the left- or right-hand side of the headset. The self-guiding connector makes it easy to attach the boom mic and cable assembly. The cable can be swapped easily in seconds and without tools.

What is the battery life of the ProFlight Series 2?

Using two AA alkaline batteries, the ProFlight Series 2 will operate for at least 45 hours of flying in typical aircraft noise. With continuous operation of the Bluetooth function, battery life will be at least 25 hours. As always, battery life varies with the type of battery, the noise environment and features used. The headset’s battery life indicator light alerts the user when batteries should be replaced.

Can I use rechargeable batteries?

Rechargeable batteries are not recommended because your flying-time battery life will be reduced from the 45-hour life, depending on the type of battery chemistry used. Rechargeable batteries also alter the accuracy of the battery status indicator light, so that when the light changes to amber, you will have less than the usual eight hours of flying time remaining that you can expect with non-rechargeable AA alkaline batteries.

Can I use lithium-ion batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries should not be used due to their typically higher voltage.

How does the auto-on feature work?

Headsets that can use aircraft power (six-pin and five-pin XLR) will automatically turn on when the aircraft power is present. A switch inside the control module battery compartment can be used to configure this feature based on user preference.

How does the auto-off feature work?

The automatic shut-off feature in your ProFlight Series 2 detects when the headset is not in use and shuts it off after several minutes to preserve battery power. The exact time it takes to power off varies and can range between 6 and 45 minutes of inactivity.

What is TSO and why is it important?

A Technical Standard Order (TSO) is a minimum performance standard for specified materials, parts and appliances used on civil aircraft. When a company is authorised to manufacture a material, part or appliance to a TSO standard, this is referred to as TSO authorisation. When a company receives a TSO authorisation, it is assured that the product meets these minimums in both design and production. Bose Corporation meets all, and exceeds many, TSO requirements. Receiving a TSO authorisation is not an approval to install and use the authorised article in the aircraft.

How does the ProFlight Series 2 compare to the A30 Aviation Headset in terms of noise reduction?

The ProFlight Series 2 does not have as much total noise reduction as the A30 Aviation Headset.
