This is the story of owning and operating a 1993 Beech Bonanza A36 in the UK and some of its adventures and flights. I have owned this plane for nearly six years now.

A headset update for the Bonanza

A few years ago I purchased some Senheisser noise cancelling headsets. Now they were OK but I have always wondered how they compared to the Bose X ones fitted to most high end planes and today I found out.

The Senheissers have the clamping force of a an elephant standing on the side of your skull so become a little uncomfortable after about one hour of flying and I often find myself taking them off and putting the intercom speaker on in case any ATC calls come through.

These headsets have also been pretty poor from a reliability front with wires coming loose several times and odd strange noises coming through the headsets during flight that go away on their own.

The Bose ones despite being expensive are fantastic and address the clamping force issue as they advertise. In addition the noise cancelling was hugely superior to the Senheissers. In the Bonanza I would normally use the squelch on the intercom and the noise cancelling but now with the Bose the squelch has no effect because all pointless background noise has already been removed I guess.

It seems you do pay for what you get in life!
