  1. Marc, this article was GREAT! You did a fantastic job and I think it will help many pilots find a headset that works for them.

    Well done!

  2. Thanks for being one of the few sources to put numbers to the performance of several different headsets. I am trying to decide between the new DC One-X versus the Bose A20 and I’m having a difficult time finding objective measurements that I can use to compare these two products.

    Since you folks are more impartial than most, I’d definitely love to see you do a much more detailed review. I’d like to see a graph showing noise reduction by frequency taken in a lab setting, plus some measurements taken in actual flight. I’d also like to see some double-blind subjective evaluations on sound quality made by a handful of “golden eared” people (the type who review stereo products, for instance) to give a sense of which products sound better for communication, music, etc.

    This would be a huge help to those of us willing to make big investments in headsets, but finding little more than marketing propaganda to base our decisions on.

  3. Bose A20 are simply the best headsets on the market! Highly recommend for the noisy turboprops. Had problems with older David Clark without ANR and started to get tinnitus but after I bought Bose A20, no more problems at all, superb headsets!
