Description

AVEE MICROPHONE KIT
  • The Avee solution combines the unprecedented comfort of a range of standard headsets with a state of the art aviation microphone – giving a light-weight 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  USING STANDARD HEADPHONES

There are many reasons for using standard headphones as aviation headphones:

  • We claim that the the comfort and quality on the standard state-of-the-art headphones from Bose® QC25®,Bose® QC35® I & II, 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 main focus and goal.
    We have made an Avee aircraft 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 in a much larger scale than on low production volume aviation headsets.
  • Modern aircrafts (both commercial jets and private smaller aircrafts 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 shorter.
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.
    Estimated battery life on the headphones is 30 hrs. If the battery in the headphones run 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 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.
THIS AVEE MICROPHONE KIT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
  • Your choice of the Avee Microphone
  • Your choice of microphone boom length (two lenghts available)
  • Your choice of an Avee20 Aircraft Interface Cable (three cable lengths available)
    Note: this cable is always included in the kit.

Avee for the Bose® 700

THE AVEE MICROPHONE FOR THE BOSE® 700

The Avee microphone for the Bose® 700 is our forth generation of the Avee microphone kit.
Customer feed back – as well as our own experience with our add-ons for the QC25®,QC35® and XM3 has been analysed and channelized into the development of the microphone for the Bose® 700.

In brief the following improvements have been implemented in the Avee700 microphone for the Bose® 700:

  • Even better connection to the headset
    Four magnets for a firm & secure connection between the Avee and the Bose® 700.
    Safely attach and detach the add-on from the headset.
    On the Bose® 700 we have developed a new discrete magnetic stripe with four neodymium magnets.
  • Microphone output level
    We have added the possibility for a ‘wider envelope’ in the microphone output level from the Avee.
  • Angle for cable connection to Avee microphone adjusted
    The angle for the connector going into the Avee is changed. This means that the strength relief on the avee cable is pointing 15 degrees more forward than on previous Avee versions.
    The reason for changing the connection angle, is that we have had issues & comments where customers feel the cable strength relief is ‘poking into’ their shoulder.
  • Headset level adjustment
    Improved headphone volume regulation to the headset speakers is now available.
    Please note that this feature is mostly used by pilots (or more commonly the ones in the back seat with no individual headset level adjustments from the aircraft avionics.
  • Avee settings
    The Avee microphone for the Bose® 700 is controlled by a micro controller like all our Avee.
    A number of parameters can be adjusted in the Avee700 add-on. These settings can either be performed directly from the Avee700 via push buttons now found on the underside of the Avee,- or via the BlueLink which of course the Avee700 is compatible with.
  • The Avee heigth
    The height of the Avee700 has been reduced with a good 50% compared to the add-on for the QC35®.
  • The new microphone boom
    Last but not least, the Avee700 is available with the new Avee microphone boom as well as the microphone ‘legacy’ boom we are currently using.
    Our new microphone boom is more sturdy than the current boom.
THE BOSE® 700
  • Based on numerous in-flight tests with the Bose® 700, we strongly believe this product will challenge the QC25®, the QC35® and even the Sony® WH1000XM3 (XM3).
    The noise reduction (ANR )on the 700 has improved substantially compared to its predecessors, and our impression is that the ANR is even better than on the Sony XM3. As on all Bose® headsets, the comfort is simply excellent.
  • Numerous new features have been built into the Bose ®700. Many of these features are not really needed when using the 700 as an aviation headset, but the possibility to adjust the headset volume from the headset itself (even when connected to the Avee or external wired source) is practical and useful.
BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY
  • If you’re interested in connecting your mobile device via Bluetooth during flight – the BlueLink makes that possible.
    Music is automatically being muted when ATC and intercom calls are detected and all basic headphone capabilities are kept even when the BluLink is empty of battery.
    The Bluetooth controller has an internal battery which lasts up to 40 hours. If battery power is lost only the Bluetooth connectivity is lost.
DEVICES AVEE BLUELINK WORKS TOGETHER WITH
  • The Avee BlueLink may be connected to any Bluetooth enabled phone or pad which supports Bluetooth A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) and Bluetooth AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    These technologies are available on iPhone, iPad and most Android devices with Bluetooth capabilities.

The magnetic strip

THE MAGNETIC STRIPE
  • The magnetic strip is adhered to the headset by following the simple installation procedure which can be found in the Magnet strip installation video under.
    Please note that two adhesive magnetic strips (one spare) are included when purchasing the Avee microphone kit.
  • Please be careful to choose the correct magnetic strip for your Avee microphone as these are designed for one specific Avee microphone.

Avee for the Sony® XM3 and XM4

AVEE FOR THE SONY® XM3 AND XM4
  • The Avee340 microphone kit for the Sony® WH1000XM3 (XM3) fits the new Sony®WH1000XM4 (XM4 for short) as well.
    Physically the XM3 and XM4 are similar and the Avee340 microphone made for the XM3 fits the XM4 perfectly.
    Please note that the Avee340 will not in any way fit the older Sony®WH1000XM2.
  • The main differences between the  XM4 and the  XM3 is that the noise cancelling feature is somewhat better on the  XM4.
    It is however important to know that the noise cancellation on the XM3 is extremely good.

Bose 700 issues

The Bose 700 is an extremely good headset for aviation use, but it has its ‘issues’.
For some unknown reason, Bose decided to make the on/off keys (and all the other keys) as keys that can easily be invoked by accident– for example when you adjust the headset position on your head.
Our experience is that it takes some time to get used to the position of these keys – and learn how not to touch them by accident.

But when you do get used to it –  it really works well.

Occasional high volume

This is simply caused by the fact that the Bose 700 has been switched off: It then reverts to maximum volume !
The volume on the Bose 700 is adjusted by swiping your finger up/down on the right headphone when the Bose 700 is turned on.
Swiping your finger up/down on the right headphone when Bose 700 power is turned off, does not give any result.

Way to fix:
    1. Avoid getting close to the buttons on the Bose 700 when adjusting its position ! Do not accidently turn the Bose 700 off !
    2. Set the Bose 700 volume to maximum to avoid getting extra high volume in case you accidently turn the Bose 700 off.
Complete silence – for 10 seconds

The Bose 700 have a fairly ugly issue when it is switched on: it goes completely silent for approximately 10 seconds.
This is the start-up / boot period for the headset, but making it go dead for this long period is a bit over the edge.
Hopefully Bose will issue an software update – fixing this issue.

Way to fix:
    1. Same as in ‘the high volume issue’  above: Avoid getting close to the buttons on the Bose 700 when adjusting its position ! Do not accidently turn the Bose 700 off and then on again!

Bose QC35

The microphone works fine and the comfort of the headsets is great. However, in a Cessna 182 the noise reduction is not even close to what I get with my Zulu headset. This will be my back up headset or for the passengers.

Great pairing for Sony

Worked great for me. GA configuration and although I have used Bose in the past I got the Sony x4 on sale. First, Sony has done a GREAT job with ANC, pardon me but better that QC15, and my lost beloved QC35s. The reason that I chose AVEE, is because of the interface with the X4s. The X4s have controls on the RH side where the volume is controlled. Avee's design allows that without obstruction as opposed to other options. One thing that you need to consider using Sony X4 as aviation headsets, is that there is a feature that turns off NC when you speak. In flight not so much a problem, but as you taxi can be an issue. Use the app to turn off this feature and you should be OK. Great fit, easy to use and save much compares to aviation specific headsets with the added bonus that I can use them for other things as well

Wonderful service

The delivery was quick as was a response to an inquiry I had. I haven't had a chance to try it but the quality looks good and my friend (the reason I bought it) said it works great. Since I already owned the Bose ANR earphones, it saved me a lot of money. Satisfied buyer in Canada.

Review

I bought the microphone in order to use the Bose I have as a back up for my Telex 850. I used the Bose + microphone only once on a 5h flight and I see the hot mic it’s very sensitive and stays active for a few seconds even if I’m just breathing while with the Telex it’s active only when I talk. The Telex 850 are my daily driver and this is gonna be a back up. It seems to be a good product. Happy holidays

Quality microphone attachment

Good sound quality and great moulding to the headset. Four stars as not having the book mic on a swivel for transporting is a big downside.

Can I get a refund?

As few friend told me to by this devise i did but i discoverd afterward than the bluetooth is not working for the music while flying... honnestly for this price i would just go for a real aviation headset because the bluetooh addon is almost 300 more euro... And if you had this it would be the same price and space... go for the david clark dc pro 2...

Avee

Hei Thibault, Sorry you did not see this information on our website first, because it is specify. When you plug the Avee you are loosing the internal bluetooth simply because you are using the auxillary plug from the headset. It is the same for all companies like us who is producing aviation mic attachment. Our bluelink product was starting at 163€ and the maximun price was 203€ depending on the connector. We are now coming with a new version who will be even cheaper, around 130€. We do understand your disapointment, please contact us on sales@avee.no for more information.

QC35 II Avee mic, top notch

Very pleased. The microphone clicks on/off the QC35 very nicely and securely. I used it in a Piper Warrior and a 787. Keep the mic close to your mouth (just so that it doesn't touch it) for best results. Comms were clear and noise free. In the 787 the mic gain could easily be turned down a bit (as could the volume) with the up/down buttons on the base. Very pleased, so much so that I have sold my Bose A20!

Avee microphone with Bose 700 headset

Easy to use and excellent sound quality and noise cancellation in a Cessna-172. It is important to have the microphone relatively close to the mouth.

Mic

Overall experience was average. Other pilot had a tough time hearing me. I do not like that the Mic boom disconnects. A few times I noticed heavy static because the boom had wiggled itself loose. I get that there are two sizes, but a solid unit would be better in my opinion. Also, a Mic boom that rotates fully out of my face would be nice as well. That all being said, I am satisfied with the product and am going to continue to use.

Second unit was working but still not entirely convinced

I had to get a second unit as the first the microphone was not working. The second one works, however i am disappointed by the sound quality. lots of cracks during speak time. it's a shame because look and feel is quite awesome as it perfectly fits to my Sony headset. I will therefore use it for my passengers and keep my non ANC headset for me now.

Avee340 - Sony M3

Hello, I still didn't have a chance to check it and use it in tthr aircraft, hovewer I would like to share with you my firts impression. Everything is properly packed, came to me in perfect condition.Whole set seems to be well attached and it looks good. My only concern is microphone boom cable - it seems to be very delicate and sensitive, I hope it will survive frequent bending and general everyday use. Regards, Krzysztof

I am happy with my purchase. I think the connection between boom mike and the headphone attachment can be improved. Whenever I adjust the boom mike in the vertical axis, it becomes loos and come off the connection the connection with headphone. P.S. I have the latest Boom mike.
