Boise A20 headset adapter from GA to Helicopter

Recommended Posts

I've just gone thru two adapters , the last being from Sporty's 6103 that does NOT work on the microphone side. I noticed that the microphone does not fit like a normal click into the helicopter adapter. The Audio function works but the microphone does not.

 

I would appreciate knowing which adapter I need for a Boise A20 GA headset. Email is this username at gmail.com

The video below was made by one of the vendors that supplies those type of cables to Sporty’s and others. The issue you described is very similar to an issue related to cables with a given type of recessed receptacle, both airplane and helicopter.

 

Some of these receptacle types make a very tight connection. They sometimes can be both hard to connect and disconnect. Moreover, if you didn’t hear a distinctive click, it wasn’t fully connected. When it’s fully connected, the click is very distinctive.

 

The video is a consequence of the number of customer returns. Electrically the cables is sound; however, an appreciable amount of force is required to make a good connection.
