I tried this at Oshkosh and the new PFX blew me away. I have hearing loss, and have progressed from a Bose X to a Zulu to a Zulu 2 ... each one better than the last for hearing clarity. At OSH they had the new Bose A20 next to the Zulu PFX. Simply no comparison. The PVX sound quality and clarity was markedly better than the Bose and a definite improvement on even the Zulu 2. Some may not need this, but for me it is indispensable I am pre-ordering now.
