Aviation Headset X®

* Full-spectrum noise reduction, clearer audio, lightweight fit
* 50% less clamping force than most pilot headsets with active noise reduction
* At least 40 hours of performance from just two AA alkaline batteries
* Portable cables or installation harness included

Bose pioneered active noise reducing headsets nearly 20 years ago, and pilots continue to prefer the Bose Aviation Headset X today. For seven years in a row, it's been rated #1 in Professional Pilot's annual survey, claiming 2007's top honors for comfort, clarity 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 50% 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.

Long battery life, smart controls

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.


Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphone technology is a proprietary Bose® innovation that electronically identifies and reduces noise while faithfully preserving the audio you desire.

TriPort® acoustic headset structure, available only from Bose, produces tonally balanced audio from small, lightweight headphones.

Center torsion spring provides a consistent, comfortable fit for any size head with half the clamping force of most conventional active headsets.

Active equalization electronically tunes the frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.

AdaptiSense® headset circuitry uses sophisticated electronics to monitor power demand and instantaneously adjust the voltage to maintain maximum battery life. Includes smart shutoff.

C-57a and C-58a TSO certified by the FAA/JAA to meet Technical Standard Order (TSO) performance standards for headsets used on civil aircraft. Aviation Headset X also meets RTCA/DO-160D and DO-214 environmental requirements.

Five-year transferable limited warranty covers parts, labor and second-day return shipping expenses for non-abuse malfunctions and problems caused by acts of nature.
