At AirVenture, Bose said that it’s a new day for their lightest-weight headset when they announced the ProFlight Series 2. The company says they listened to the feedback of cockpit crews to develop this successor headset. An important start is that Bose managed to shave more weight from the Series 2, which now weighs in at only 4.4 ounces. The new ProFlight 2 includes a new thinner, lighter, and more flexible cable to provide pilots improved freedom of movement and allow easy unpacking and storage. The ProFlight 2 still incorporates the side-tap feature to allow pilots to easily adjust the amount of noise canceling on the unit to, for instance, easily allow for conversation between pilots in the air. The ProFlight 2 automatically shuts itself down when not in use, although the batteries should last about 45 hours when the unit is on. The ProFlight series of headsets are designed for the lower overall cockpit noise environment of a turbine airplane—not, say, the cockpit of a piston single. Time will tell if Bose has solved the problems inherent with the original ProFlight.
