Description

The Avee Aviation microphone

The Avee solution combines the unprecedented comfort of a range of standard headsets with a state-of-the-art aviation microphone – giving a lightweight tailor-made aviation headset with superior audio communication.

How it works

The Avee microphone combines the aircraft electronic interface and a microphone boom into a compact clip-on unit that plugs directly into the base of your ANR headphones.
The add-on is securely fastened in place with a robust magnetic connection, preventing it from accidentally detaching from your headset.

Why use standard ANR headphones
There are many reasons for using standard headphones as aviation headphones:

  • We claim that the comfort and quality of the standard state-of-the-art headphones from Bose® QC35® I & II, Bose® QC45®, Sony® WH-1000XM3/XM4®) and Bose® 700 is superior compared to any aviation headset comfort and quality. These headsets are simply made with minimum clamp-force, maximum comfort, and maximum sound quality as the main focus and goal.
    We have made an Avee aviation microphone add-on that fits each of these selected headphones.

  • The ANR in the headphones we support have developed tremendously even during the last recent years. These non-aviation headphones are produced in huge quantities for a large ‘standard customer’ market. This means that improvements and customer cost benefits are available on a much larger scale than on low production volume aviation headsets.

  • Modern aircraft (both commercial jets and private smaller aircraft with piston engines) are far less noisy than 10-20 years ago.
    The bulky and heavy headset with a fairly high degree of passive noise reduction is simply no longer needed: the modern ANR has taken over.
    All in all, it makes selected standard headphones extremely well suited as aviation headphones. They are simply made for aviation use.

  • Most pilots get a ride in the back seat once in a while. Having your own personal state-of-the-art headset available while listening to music, makes the ride quiet and comfortable.

Aircraft interface cable

  • The Kevlar-reinforced aircraft adapter cable with your choice of length and connectors – goes directly from the headset Avee microphone to your aviation audio panel.
    Our system is fully automated with nothing to configure – no switches to set. The estimated battery life on the headphones we support is more than 20 hrs.
    If the battery in the headphones runs out of power, you will still hear ATC & intercom: only the ANR is lost.

What you get

  • Choose from a variety of Avee products to integrate perfectly with your ANR headphones. Our kits include a microphone specific to your headset and an aircraft adapter cable.

Mix & match adapter cables

The Avee system makes it easy for multi-aircraft users.
Choose from a variety of adapter cables and simply detach and replace it with an alternative in seconds.
No configuration is required.

Certifications

All Avee products are designed according to FAA TSO and EASA ETSO-C139, however, we are not using a third-party test house to verify our products.
Please read more about TSO and ETSO certifications on the TSO and ETSO tab.

What is included
The Avee aviation microphone kit includes the following parts:

  • Your choice of the Avee aviation microphone
  • Your choice of microphone boom length (two lengths available)
  • Your choice of an Avee20 Aircraft Interface Cable (three cable lengths available) Note: this cable is always included in the kit.
  • Your choice of aircraft connector
  • Two extra windshields
  • Two adhesive magnetic strips
  • One Avee headset case

How to prepare your headphones

The Avee microphone is using an adhesive magnetic stripe to attach safely to your Bose® or Sony® headset.

This solution makes it easy to attach and detach the Avee microphone from the headphone in seconds, and the Avee microphone stays safely in place whenever it is connected to the headphones.
Please follow these instructions to install the magnetic stripe properly to your headphones.

Step 1: Using the cleaning wipe supplied, clean the base of your headphones including the area surrounding the input jack. Ensure that you remove any residue that is adhered to the headphones. Let dry for a minute or two.

Step 2: We are now preparing to transfer the magnetic stripe to the headphones using the Avee microphone as a jig. Let the magnetic stripe be attached to the Avee microphone, and remove the adhesive stripe protective backing from the magnetic stripe.  The magnetic stripe should stay on the Avee microphone and the adhesive side should be facing the headphone.
Check out this video on how to do it as well!

Step 3: Guide the add-on to the base of the left headphone and firmly press it in place for minimum 30 seconds. Once attached, carefully unplug it to reveal the adhesive magnetic stripe being transferred to the headphones.
Press firmly on the tape to ensure all edges of the tape have adhered to the headphones.
Optimally the adhesive on the magnetic stripe needs a 24 hrs curing time.

That is all – the Avee aviation microphone is ready to be used!               

 
Connecting the Avee microphone to the aircraft

To start using the Avee microphone in the aircraft, follow this procedure:

  1. Plug the Avee aircraft interface cable into the Avee microphone using the angled USB connector. Use force to make the USB C connector go all the way into the USB socket. The connection may be done in two directions – either the cable pointing upwards – or the cable is pointing downwards.
  2. Attach the Avee microphone to the headset. Make sure the Avee microphone is clamped safely to the headset.
  3. Plug the Avee aircraft interface into the aircraft. Please note that the aircraft connector might be the dual GA, Lemo Redel, Neutricon or XLR-5 – all depending on what you have purchased from us & what is available in your aircraft.
  4. Switch on the ANR feature on the headphones. Please note that you will always have audio in your headphones regardless of battery status or headphones ANR power on/off.
    The Avee microphone output is NOT affected by headphone power status.
  5. When the aircraft radio & intercom is switched on, the mic add-on will get bias power from the aircraft. This is indicated with a steady dimmed Power indicator light on the bottom side of the Avee microphone.
  6. The internal Bluetooth® available in your Bose QC35 or Sony XM3/XM4 will automatically disconnect all units connected via Bluetooth when the Avee microphone is connected.
    To be able to listen to music or use your phone when flying, you need the Avee BlueLink. Check out our web pages for more info on this add-on product.
Headphone volume setting

Adjust the headphone volume by using the Volume knob on the Avee microphone.
Rotate anti clockwise for max volume and clockwise for minimum volume.
Please note that for most pilots the normal procedure for adjusting the headphone volume is by setting the Avee headphone volume to maximum – and then adjusting the volume from the aircraft audio panel.

In small GA aircrafts, the headset volume  is typically adjusted individually for pilot and co-pilot. Volume level in the left back seat is following the pilot volume level, while the right back seat is following the level set by the co-pilot.
In this case we suggest letting the back seaters adjust the volume level to lower level (if needed) using the volume control on the Avee microphone.

Microphone output level

The microphone output level is factory set to a normal output level, and will usually not require adjustments.
The output level may however be set by using the Mic level adjustment knob on the bottom side of the Avee microphone.
To adjust – please use your finger nail or the corner of a credit card. Maximum clockwise is minimum level while maximum anti-clockwise is maximum level.
DO NOT USE FORCE – and DO NOT USE A SCREW DRIVER !  
Avoid setting the output level to high. This will make the noise cancelling microphone in the Avee pick up unnecessary cockpit/ambient noise.

Headset mono & stereo mode

The Avee microphone is set to the mono mode (factory setting), by turning the

Mono / stereo adjustment knob fully anti clockwise.  To set stereo mode, turn the

adjustment knob fully clockwise.

DO NOT USE FORCE – and DO NOT USE A SCREW DRIVER !  

Problem solving

1. Bad ATC reception – reading you two
The most common problem for fresh aviators, is that the microphone is placed too far away from the mouth. This makes the intercom and radio pick up little or no audio from you, and this will of course lead to problems. Keep the microphone approx.  6mm from your mouth at all times – and let the flat side & white dot face your mouth.
A good rule is that when you hear yourself well in the intercom, ATC and other aircrafts hear you well.
However – the intercom and the radio are to separate and independent systems and they behave differently.

  1. Intercom squelch setting.
    On most GA aircrafts intercoms, the squelch is set manually.
    If the first part of the word is clipped – or the intercom squelch is not opening at all – this must be corrected by adjusting the squelch threshold in the aircraft.
  2. Audio in left ear only:
    The Avee microphone is set to stereo mode. Set to mono mode to fix this issue.

TSO Certifications

What is an TSO/ETSO approval

The TSO (US Technical Standard Order) and its European equivalent ETSO (European Technical Standard Order) authorization, represents one way (and not the only way) to have products, parts and appliances approved.
The TSO/ETSO  is an optional step in a design process which ensures that a part or appliance complies with a minimum performance standard.

Is the Avee Aviation Microphone TSO/ETSO approved ?
The complete headset solution with the Avee Aviation Microphone is not TSO or ETSO approved.
The reason for this is simple: as a manufacturer of the microphone part of the solution only, we do not have full control of the production line of the headsets we are adapting to (Bose & Sony) and hence: we can not obtain a TSO/ETSO approval.

The Avee microphone add-on itself is designed in compliance with TSO standards , while the Bose & Sony headsets most likely are designed according to different standards than the TSO.

This fact does however not mean that the quality of headset from Bose & Sony is higher – or lower – than headsets manufactured according to the TSO standards.

Their design standard is simply not TSO.

It is a fact that the quantity of high quality headset products coming out from Bose & Sony are far superior to the quantity of aviation headsets being produced.
Making low quality products would not be a good business model for sure, and the quality of Bose & Sony headsets is simply excellent.

Our competitors TSO approval

We do know that some of our competitors state their products are TSO compliant – or even have a TSO approval.

This might be correct for part of the product , but will unfortunately not apply for the complete headset solution with a Bose or Sony (non TSO) headset.

The complete system as ONE UNIT has to be approved  – from cable to ear cushions. This is not possible for aviation microphone systems like the Avee – or any other mixed system.

Who require the TSO approval
It is important to know that the request for a TSO approved headset is an airline request, and not a FAA request.
Headsets used by the pilots in aircrafts do not need a TSO or ETSO approval.

We estimate we sell around 90% of our products to commercial pilots, but we do see that the TSO requirement from airlines in the US is far more common than in airlines in the rest of the world.
