Any Reviews From Fellow Frac Pilots Using the QC15 w/UFlyMike,

Saw 1 thread from the Corporate Forum, only 1 review. Wondered if there are any others out there.

thanks in advance

Not me, but on our company boards the consensus is positive. Significantly more noise cancelling and the mike works fine.

works great but pretty fragile.

My headset broke twice and the mic once.

All repaired quickly but still a pain

Traded in my QC2 for the 15. So far they work great. The 15's noise reduction is significantly better than the 2's. Also it seems to me the inside of the ear cup is bigger allowing a better fit.

Does Bose have a swap program?

Didn't know they would do that. SOLD! Have loved my QC-2 and UFM for almost 3 years. Best money I have spent in this biz in years...

What's a good source for the QC15? Free shipping, reliable, on-line.

I think Bose.com is probably the best option. Don't think anybody is discounting yet

So the U Fly just plugs like it did on the QC2? It looks like that same plug in the pictures.

Best option for outright purchase of QC-15 is www.crutchfield.com, since they don't charge tax or shipping. Bose will charge you tax. Also, ask for a new customer discount code of your own.

Although you can technically do this online, we recommend you call the 800 number below to order. The problem with ordering online is that if you try to use three codes that have been used to their maximum for the month, you get "locked out" of the ordering page.

EACH CODE CAN ONLY BE USED 2X PER MONTH
So keep trying till you find one still good for this month.

Ziggy at Crutchfield Sales: 1-800-388-2911 x3258 If Ziggy is not there, any other salesperson can help you, but they may not be as familiar with the code referrals as Ziggy. If you reach someone that says you can't do this, just hang up, and call back and talk to someone else.

I upgraded a couple weeks back and it worked great- definitely a noticable improvement on the QC2, while seeming just as rugged and with the same battery life. Still not as powerful ANR or passive protection as the Bose X, mind you, but it is about half way between the X and the QC2, the latter of which is better than, say, a Telex 850 ANR. I have a X (which I'll keep for occasional piston flying) and a QC and I switched back to the X for jet flying until the upgrade which will finally relegate my X to piston use.

I noticed a significant difference when airlining - less so in the cockpit (the X cockpit is pretty quiet to start with). So if you missed the opportunity to upgrade I wouldn't worry too much about it.
