The ANR feature of the Bose A20 works as well, or even better than the custom molded military earpieces I used to use with a standard ANR system. The Bose A20 installed into the Lift AV-1 KOR helmet is an amazing combination. Have only heard praise from Bose A20 users who fly the CJ and/or the Yak.

If I turn on the ANR is too loud and noisy, I can barely hear anything above the noise, only way to be able to hear is with ANR turned off.

Anyone else experienced this?

I have a set of Bose A20’s I have used in my Yak 52. I have to say with the ANR switched on I couldn’t get on with them. They made the radial engine sound like it had dumped all the oil in it overboard. I kept having to pull the ear cup off my ear to make sure the engine was sounding right.

In the end I have reverted back to my David Clark’s which work well. The Bose have become a very expensive headset for my passengers. I made a complaint to Bose who responded back in saying that they had received a few similiar complaints. They admitted that there headsets would not suit every type of aircrafts particular engine harmonics.

I really would like to try a set of Lightspeed Zulu headsets in the YAK. I think Lightspeed are offering your money back if you are happy. I will give them a try and report back.

I would be interested if other Yak pilots have experienced the same when using a Bose A20.

My advice would be to try a headset before you buy if you can.

Yes, I had a similar experience. After flying my 52 for many years, I could not get use to (or trust) the muted sound. Same as you, the A20 went to the rear cockpit and I returned to my DC.

I have tried Lightspeeds Zulu 3, Bose A 20s and Bose model prior to A 20s, of all this the older Bose worked the best.

Yesterday flew with Clarity Aloft eadsets and no problems at all, so for now I am keeping using this.

I use CEP-USA in-ear plugs with custom ear molds inside an Alpha Eagle dome, they are almost as effective in my HGU. I much prefer them to ANR in the CJ and Yak.
