BoeingDriver99, I just saw this thread. I was on leave all of November and December had me in the sim etc.

I have the Proflight V1. I believe the V2 addressed a lot of the niggles although I must say, they are pretty minor for me.
Yes the case is large - about the same size as the QC35. Putting the headset away in that case is an exercise in frustration. Whoever designed it is clearly a sadist.
I do get audio "cracks" and to remedy that, I disconnect the boom and reconnect it, fixes it for several months.
Sound quality is excellent. You're not quite as disconnected from the Cabin Crew or Passengers so that's good. Either tapping off the ANR is quick or simply removing the ear bud works very well too. The mic works very well.
I have no dramas with the ANR in the top position (flying a Challenger 350). It is very good and doesn't leave you as "remote" as the A20 can.
They are very light on but they do take a little time to work out the best position. They can feel like they are falling off your head. They're not.
I clip the battery pack to the side wall, that takes the weight off the battery pack nicely. (2 x AA).

I would only go back to the Bose A20 if I was operating in an ambient high noise environment, eg, like a turboprop.
Right now, Bose have a deal on the Proflights or A20s, buy one and get a QC thrown in.

I suggest buying the V2 boom and cable replacement for the V1. You will enjoy them a lot more.

Has anyone used the Proflight for GA? My company allows us to buy our own Proflight 2 through a scheme, but nothing else. I also do some GA flying, and would like to use it for this as well if possible, rather than buy another headset. I realise itís probably not the first choice for GA, just wondered if it was workable?

I am using Bose Pro Flight Ver 2 on Airbus A320 series aircraft. The microphone input level is too low, especially for intercom and PA. Does anyone have the same problem and any solution to this?

No, never had that problem, but sometimes have the problems that people wearing this headset, or other very good ANR headsets, tend to speak in a very low volume which makes it hard to understand for their colleague or ATC.

Same problem here... Any advice on what to do? Problem only exists on intercom, ATC and PA seems to be not affected.
