Bose A30 Aviation Headset

UPDATE: GA (Twin-plug) versions are back in stock and available for immediate dispatch.

The Bose A30 is the most comfortable around-ear headset Bose has ever created. It dramatically elevates every flight with the best combination of comfort, audio clarity and active noise cancellation available on the market.

All other plug types that show zero stock will ship within 1-3 weeks. We have shipments arriving all the time but they are selling as fast as we get them in. Occasionally there is a short wait on the next shipment.

*This product is for the straight cable version only, coiled cord versions coming soon

Main Features for the new Bose A30 Headset:

  • Lightweight design with low clamping force - 20% less clamping force than the Bose A20
  • Three modes of active noise cancellation
  • Unmatched audio clarity with active equalisation
  • Precision-focused noise cancelling microphone
  • Toolless, side-swappable down cable and microphone

Compared to the Bose A20 Aviation Headset, it has:

  • Enhanced comfort achieved through a purposeful design with quality materials, redistribution of weight throughout the headset and reduced clamping force.
  • Digital active noise reduction with three modes of active noise cancellation.
  • Tap control.
  • A thinner, more flexible down cable.
  • A swappable down cable (no tools required).
  • Storage in a smaller carrying case.

What is the Bose A30 Aviation Headset, and what are its key benefits?

The Bose A30 Aviation Headset is best utilized where noise is pervasive, comfort is required and communication is critical.

The A30 is the industry’s quietest, most comfortable active noise cancelling aviation headset. It provides unparalleled long term comfort with enhanced communication capabilities, including selectable modes of noise cancellation and talk-through tap control. With FAA/EASA TSO C-139a certification, an onhead weight of only 404 grams and many different plug configurations, pilots of virtually all aircraft can experience the most versatile around-ear headset on the market.

What’s different about the Bose A30 Aviation Headset?

The Bose A30 Aviation Headset is our most advanced around-ear aviation headset ever. Its lightweight design, low clamping force and specialized earcup design enable maximum comfort, even over long flights.

The A30 is customizable to pilots’ environment and/or personal preferences with three selectable modes of active noise cancellation. This industry-leading active noise cancellation is achieved without compromising the acclaimed clear audio and simplicity of use expected from Bose.

All models come with two AA batteries, and select models can also be powered by the aircraft. These models have a flexible power feature that allows pilots to switch seamlessly from battery power to aircraft power without compromising headset performance.
