    Problems with Bose Aviation X Headsets

    I took the plunge many years ago and purchased two Bose Headset X headsets and have taken good care of them. Within the last year each of them has malfunctioned, with no sound coming from the left earpiece. I called Bose and was told that they no longer provide service on these models, but that they could be "traded in" for an upgrade...with a substantial price tag.

    This is frustrating. I have two A20's that I really enjoy, and I love the headsets, but don't want to shell out big bucks if I don't need to.

    ...in the meantime I put a set of good old David Clark's back into service (I retrofit them with the Headsets, Inc ANR years ago and they are still functioning!, but are heavier than the Bose.

    Anyone know of a repair place to send the Bose X for repair?

    Try asking the Headsets Inc guy. I understand he does some custom work and certainly he knows ANR.

    The Bose leads have cheap wiring, they fall apart inside the wire bundle.
