Bose today at 2019 EAA AirVenture unveiled its ProFlight Series 2 aviation headset, which it claims is its most lightweight, compact, and comfortable headset for corporate and commercial pilots yet. The new headset, expected to be available worldwide in September and priced starting at $999.95 (without Bluetooth), incorporates improvements based on feedback from pilots.
Features of the new headset include a thinner, lighter, and more flexible cable, lower weight and enhanced stability for the wearer, and a refined low mode of noise cancellation designed to optimize communication outside the use of the intercom. Coming in at an on-head weight of 4.5 ounces, the Series 2 headset is 0.4 ounces less than its ProFlight predecessor. An option for custom-molded eartips from Avery Sound is also available.
“We spoke with numerous corporate and airline pilots about their work environment and received valuable input that helped our engineers deliver a refined headset ideally suited for their unique flight deck and cockpit environments—where noise is pervasive, comfort is required, and communication is critical,” said Bose director of aviation, military and SoundComm headsets.
