I am in the market for a Bose QC15 and UFlyMike. Would prefer them together, but I am willing to buy them separately.

Heard they are pretty nice and figured I would try finding some on here before heading to ebay.

You're going to save maybe $50-$75 on ebay. Just shell out the cash and buy new ones (without a questionable history). They're worth every penny, especially if you're a commuter.

I'm not a commuter or anything yet. Just a lowly private pilot working towards a flying career. Figured if I am shooting for 121 I may as well get a decent headset early on. Thanks for the advice though, I will do that unless someone offers me a pair on here at a reasonable price.

Took your advice and went ahead and bought some new ones. Thanks!

That would've been good info to have before. You need to spend money on hours, not gucci toys. You're going to have to be very careful with those if you're going to get any mileage out of them with rental/flight school abuse.

With this piece of info, take them back and use the money on a good used pair of David Clarks.

Just looked at ebay. You can get a brand new pair of David Clark 13.4's for less than those Bose. I've had mine for 18 years.

I take good care of my equipment, so they should last me a while. Also, I already had budgeted a headset into my training, so I'm fine on that front. But I do appreciate your concern.
