BOSE INTRODUCES NEXT GENERATION HEADSET FOR PILOTS
Bose’s most recent industry innovation – launched just last month – is the Bose ProFlight Series 2 Aviation Headset. The ProFlight Series 2 claims to be the industry’s smallest, quietest and most comfortable active noise cancelling aviation headset and is Bose’s most innovative aviation headset yet. Bose developed the ProFlight Series 2 to meet the specific needs of professional pilots who fly moderately noisy, pressurised, turbine-powered aircraft. It incorporates more than 30 US utility and design patents and offers many features designed for the way professional pilots fly. Refinements to ProFlight Series 2 include a thinner, lighter and more flexible cable, and the addition of winglets on the mic boom to assist in correct mic alignment and adjustment. The tap control for talkthrough communication function has been updated to reduce chances of inadvertent activation and provide improved talk-through audio response, and a non-Bluetooth product option is now available.
Finally, the carrying case has been improved to aid faster storage and transportation. The uniquely comfortable and stable design of the ProFlight Series 2 has an on-head weight of just 128 grams, delivering the audio clarity pilots expect, in a size and configuration light enough to remain comfortable even on the longEtihad est flights. The headset also features three user selectable modes of active noise cancellation, active equalisation, a noise cancelling microphone and fullfunction Bluetooth connectivity. The Bose ProFlight Aviation Headset, like the A20 Aviation Headset, is FAA TSO and EASA E/TSO-C139a certified, meeting all applicable ARINC standards.
