A20 boom length

Is anyone from Bose able to provide a measurement of the length of the microphone boom on the A20 from the center of the pivot axis to the center of the microphone itself?

 

How does the boom length of the A20 compare to the X?

 

I’m asking because my once-reliable X frequently gives me trouble breaking  squelch reliably on the intercom and I will often be told by ATC that my transmissions are or faint. Getting the microphone closer to centered on my mouth seems to diminish the problems, but that positioning is difficult to achieve with the boom length on the X, so I’d like to try to find replacement candidates that have a longer boom than the X.

 

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

About 7 inches.  Same as on the Aviation Headset X.

Re: A20 boom length

Hi Matthew, It's more likely your trusty X is on it's way out to be honest. You shouldn't have that issue with Mic length. Maybe check the online used re-sellers for a replacement Mic and Downlead Assy that matches your existing one? It is quite easy to change. It may help avoid having to buy a replacement Headset?

All the best and hope you sort it.
