David Clamps.....ugggggh....had to send in my Bose A-20s

My Bose A-20s are in the back of a UPS airplane right now headed over to Massachusetts.

Over the last week they developed a nasty habit of cutting out all sound for a few seconds if I moved my head ....sometimes. A few seconds of no communication is very bad especially in the terminal environment.  I did find it only happened when ANR was turned on. So my temporary fix was to sit REALLY still in cruise. Once below 18,000 feet I just turned the ANR off and dealt with the extra noise.

There is a 5 year warranty so back they went. I am pretty sure it's an issue with the cable.

Today I had to use the company supplied David Clamps...err David Clarks. Wow I forgot how heavy and clamping they are. Ugh.

Thankfully I have one trip tomorrow and then I am off for 10 days...I should have my Bose back before my next long trip. I hope so anyway.


  1. I always thought David Clarks were for GA given their size!

  2. They are normally for GA, but they are also TSO'd so my airline puts them in all airplanes as standard equipment.
