Bose QC2/UflyMike Combination-TSO Status Alert[FONT=Arial,Arial][FONT=Arial,Arial]Our CMO has stated that the Bose QC2 headset/UFlyMike combination is not TSO’d for aviation use. This is due to the fact that the headset portion will fail completely when the battery fails. There is NO passive voice capability. While the Uflymike boom mike is in fact TSOd, but the Bose QC2 is not.In order for this combination to meet TSO requirements, the Bose QC2 Headset/UFlyMike combination must be used in conjunction with the TSO’d earbuds. Any noise attenuating headset must have manual reversion capability if the battery fails. Supplementing the Bose QC2 with the earbuds meets this requirement per the ACO and MIDO.
Looks like you have to now buy earbuds from Uflymic if you want to keep using this headset. Does anyone know if you can use the earbuds and the mic without the Qc2 headset or do you have to basically have two headsets on now to use this thing?
