Hi Bose X owners,

anyone upgraded to the new A20?

Would you do it again?

I have two Bose X since 5 years, never any issues. Just looking for a real improvement...

I´ve read some reviews and it seems that the new ones are better than the old ones. Just need more input to justify the investment...

Thanks a lot for your experience!!

Best regards,

Hi, Timm

If you have tons of money go for the BOSE or ZULU, they certainly are fine headsets with an ANR of about 50 dB's at a cost of nearly $1000.

However, in todays economy many of my customers (I am a distributor of high quality headsets) are opting for the WCH200D, a fine aviation headset that has an effective noise reduction of about 30dB's if used with the included gel ear seals at a cost of less than $150

I recently made a trip from Las Vegas to Longmont, Colorado and intermittently used my Lightspeed ANR(active noise reduction) headset and my WCH200D PNR(passive noise reduction) and could not tell a difference.
