Military Headsets / Noise Reduction Headsets

To help worldwide military personnel cope with exceedingly high noise levels generated by engines and during travel in armored vehicles, Bose has developed these active noise reduction military headsets:

  • Combat Vehicle Crewman Headset
  • TriPort® Tactical Headset Series 2
  • A20® Aviation Headset

Noise reduction + Clearer audio = 
Increased mission effectiveness.

Tested for effectiveness by the US military, the technology of Bose acoustic noise cancelling headsets:

  • Improves mission success
  • Improves intelligibility
  • Increases permissible exposure time in noisy armored vehicles
  • Can reduce stress and fatigue

We encourage you to experience the difference Bose technology makes in high-noise vehicle environments. Not only does it deliver improved speech intelligibility, but it does so in a far more comfortable way than traditional, passive noise-reduction headsets.

Combat Vehicle Crewman Headset

In 1993, Bose became the first company to supply an active noise reduction system to the US Army for their armored vehicle crews. Designed specifically for use in tracked armored vehicles such as the M-1 Abrams tank and the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, our latest generation Bose® Combat Vehicle Crewman headset offers the following features and benefits, which result from more than ten years' experience providing headsets for armored forces worldwide.

Features and benefits

Better speech intelligibility
Bose technology in Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headsets improves speech intelligibility scores to 95% at noise levels of 115dBA SPL, compared to 80% in conventional headsets. (Source: USAF AL data.)

Full-spectrum noise reduction
Unlike many conventional passive noise reduction headsets, the Combat Vehicle Crewman headset provides excellent attenuation in the critical lower frequencies where vehicle noise predominates, resulting in increased safe exposure time.

Comfortable fit 
Ergonomic design features, including proprietary dual-seal ear cushions and large-volume earcups, ensure a comfortable fit over a wide range of head and ear sizes. 

Talk-through capability
This user-selectable, binaural feature permits monitoring of the ambient sound environment when desired. Crewmen can disconnect from the vehicle intercom system and communicate with other crewmen standing nearby—without removing their helmets. Internal circuitry prevents transmission of extremely loud noises, protecting the user.

TriPort Tactical Headset Series 2

Military studies show that reducing noise improves mission effectiveness. During mounted combat operations, the ability to communicate intelligibly within them becomes more and more important.

Building on more than ten years' experience in providing CVC headsets for tank and tracked vehicle applications, Bose introduces the TriPort Tactical Headset Series 2. It’s designed specifically for use in wheeled armored vehicles such as the M-1114 "up armored" HMMWV "Humvee" and Stryker.

Features and benefits

Full-spectrum noise reduction
Proprietary technologies allow a narrow profile earcup with full-spectrum noise reduction. The technology in Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headsets reduces environmental and mechanical ambient noise significantly, increasing safe exposure time more than tenfold over that provided by passive headsets. Redesigned control module supports both mounted and dismounted operations.

Comfortable fit
Narrow-profile earcups allow a comfortable fit with many ballistic helmets. In addition, the TriPort Tactical Headset Series 2 is up to 33% lighter than conventional noise reducing tactical headsets. The proprietary, ergonomic design of the ear cushions and the internal earcup volume ensure good fit over a wide range of head and ear sizes.

Talk-through capability 
This user-selectable, binaural feature permits monitoring of the ambient sound environment. Crew members can disconnect from the vehicle intercom system and communicate with other crew members standing nearby or listen for threats—without removing their helmets. Internal circuitry prevents transmission of extremely loud noises, protecting the user.

Compatibility with CBRN protective equipment 
The TriPort tactical headset may be operated with CBRN (chemical - biological - radiological - nuclear environments) protective masks, allowing the user to realize the benefits of clearer audio and noise reduction even in the most challenging environments.

Flexible boom microphone 
The flexible boom allows easy, precise adjustment and may be mounted on the left or right earcup, depending on user preference. The modular design of the cable / boom microphone assembly facilitates field replacement and adaptation to different intercommunications systems.

A20 Aviation Headset

Presenting the most advanced Bose® aviation headset yet. Bose was the first to introduce active noise reducing headsets to aviation more than 20 years ago, forever changing the way pilots fly.

Now, the Bose A20 Aviation Headset sets an entirely new standard. It’s been engineered for significantly increased noise reduction in even louder environments. With an improved degree of comfort you’ll appreciate. All without compromising the clear audio you expect from Bose. 

It also features a Bluetooth® communications interface, an auxiliary audio input and priority switching. It's made in the US, and meets or exceeds all TSO requirements. No other headset can deliver this advanced combination of benefits.

Features and benefits

  • Significantly greater noise reduction for pilots than currently available
  • Improved level of comfort achieved through choice of materials, distribution of weight throughout the headset, 1/3 less clamping force than most conventional noise reducing aviation headsets, and additional room for your ears
  • Clear audio for enhanced communications
  • Made in the US
  • Meets or exceeds all TSO standards
  • At least 45 hours of typical headset use from just two AA alkaline batteries
  • Auxiliary audio input
  • Priority switching, allowing pilots to decide which audio source they want to hear
  • Bluetooth communications interface, available in select configurations
  • All this, and these headsets still weigh only 12 ounces
