  2. I tried to attach photos but cant seem to get them uploaded for some reason. I used the same technique gallet uses to keep the earcups in place. Velcro!! works fine and you can position them anywhere you like because the bose earcups are slightly smaller than the gallet ones.
  3. For anyone considering doing this I thought I'd post about my experience. I just installed an a20 into my gallet 250 and it was wayyyyy easier than I anticipated. The headset comes apart very easy. The microphone assembly is able to disconnect from the headset itself. You have to open up the assembly to be able to disconnect the mic boom from the assembly itself so it can be mounted directly to the helmet. There is NO soldering involved.

Don't be taken in by all these 'life is wonderful posts'. You will work endless hours for no money at the beginning but if you keep with it, in a few years you will have 'experience' and will work endless hours for a little money! I'm a base manager so I have it pretty good. It took me a long time to get here and these jobs are few and far between, but I look at our new pilots and they are all o
