Bose A20 headset

I recently purchase a Bose A20 headset, the newer model with bluetooth audio support.  This was after seeing it advertised many times over on FlightChops and  steveo1kinevo (adverts work, people!). I've been using a Lightspeed Zulu 2 for the last couple of years, so I was curious to compare it to the Bose.  I like the Bose much better.  Both have nice bluetooth audio setups, with volume controls on the headset cable and a mute vs mix mode for radio and music combinations.  The Bose was trivial to pair to my phone, as it booted up in pairing mode right away. The music quality was at least 10x better with the Bose.  It has actual bass, and much more dynamic range.  The zulu 2 always made music sound kind of distant to my ears. I also think the Bose is better at noise canceling by a small, but noticeable amount. The other win for the Bose is in comfort.  The clamping force is less on your skull and the ear cups are less bulky, meaning I don't easily bump the head
