Air Boom Cannula for Bose Headsets

Has anyone tried these? I saw an article in a magazine about them. Apparently they don’t touch your face or stick in your nose like most cannulas do.

Will: At $399 for each headset I will let someone else check it out. I use the Mountain High cannula and the Bose Aviation X together without a problem. I think this may be a solution in search of a problem that does not exist.

Where did you see the article? The page you reference has only minimal information.

Do you know if the canulla is a Oximizer style or standard?

Rocket Engineering (http://www.rocketengineering.com) makes it.

I saw it in a ‘Pilot Journal’ article a few months ago. (http://www.pilotjournal.com/content/2003/mayjune/bonanza.html)

According to the referenced article, its consumption is comparable to a mask rather than an Oxysaver cannula.

Gordon: Thanks. If I understand O2 systems correctly, then it means that consumption would be up significantly with the boom?

That would certainly be my interpretation. Their “spec sheet” for the product is utterly devoid of any details. Pitiful.

I have the boom cannula that fits on the Bose headset ( or any other). It was only around $90.00. I forgot where I bought it, but it was in a aircraft parts catalog that is mailed to us. It sticks onto the left ear cup with sticky tape and snaps into place with a ball and socket design. It functions just like a mike boom , but it fits up into your nose with two small air tubes for the nostrils. It contains tubing with the re-breather that lies on your chest and connects to any O2 source. I have the mustache type also, but I like the Boom better. once it’s adjusted to your nose , it is barely noticed.
