Proprietary technologies in the A20 Aviation Headset reduce noise across the full spectrum of human hearing, even in loud 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. Innovative cushion materials block sound before it enters the earcups, providing
an even quieter headset experience.
Comfort for the long haul
The A20 Aviation Headset also provides significant comfort and stability. While the overall headset profile is compact, the earcup cavity allows plenty
of ear room. The proprietary cushions provide quality acoustic seals, even over eyeglasses, and remains 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 minimal clamping force.
AUX IN and Bluetooth Technology Convenience
The ergonomic control module includes an auxiliary audio input with Intercom/AUX priority switching. Many pilots will want to use this for dedicated
GPS and traffic warning systems. You can set audio priority to mute the AUX input completely when an intercom signal is detected, or to simply
lower the AUX volume appropriately.
On select models, Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity allows you to receive calls wirelessly while wearing the A20 headset. And its enhanced 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.
For all types of aircraft
The A20 Aviation Headset is available in dual plug, 6-pin plug and U174 plug models designed for use in all types of general aviation aircraft, including
The 6-pin plug model has a flexible power system for increased versatility using custom adapters. When connected to the optional dual G/A plug adapter,
it seamlessly converts your aircraft-powered headset to a battery-powered unit—ideal when taking your headset from one plane to another.
Similarly, you can connect the 6-pin plug to the optional U174 adapter to use the A20 headset in helicopters, too.
