This adapter converts a low impedance microphone and phone military headset into higher impedance for use in general aviation aircraft. It also converts the U-174/U plug on the military headset into .206" and .25" plugs used in general aviation; 25 inches in length.

This will work with a variety of military headsets including, but not limited to, the popular David Clark H10-76 and H10-76XL. If you are planning on using this to convert the DC H10-76 for use exclusively in civilian fixed wing aircraft, we recommend using the David Clark H10-76 conversion kit instead.  The conversion kit will swap out low impedance mic with a high impedance mic. However, if you will be switching back and forth between military and civilian, we recommend using this impedance adapter instead.

Lowest Price Guaranteed!

If you find a better price elsewhere on this product we will Match that price and beat it by 10% of the difference. See Details.

  • Review: 5 stars for both this product and mypilotstore's customer service.

    I ordered one of these and it sat in the box for several weeks before I had a chance to try it out with my military single plug Bose X headset. I took it out to the Cessna 172 and tried it. When I transmitted, I got a loud squeal. It was DOA. I knew the return policy was 4 weeks so I pretty much chocked it up to me buying the wrong adapter and I was out the money.

    MyPilotStore emailed me to see how my order went. I took the opportunity to let them know what had happened but I understood their return policy. What did they do? They told me to send it back for an exchange anyway! I sent it back, they sent me a new adapter and guess what? It works!

    I couldn't be happier with both this adapter and the customer service experience. This place already has the best prices online for pilot gear but I am sold on my experience with them. They have earned my business and I will continue to shop here and only here.

    Yes, this works with the single plug Bose X military headset!

10 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Thursday, November 16, 2017

    Q: Does this adapter can connect with Bose A20 U174 military single plug headset into Boeing aircraft(dual GA plug) ? TKS!

    A: If you are using a military headset, then yes. This will convert a military headset for use in a civilian aircraft using the dual plugs. 

  • Sunday, January 22, 2017

    Q: It works for Bose Aviation X military headsets?

    A: Yes it will work for that headset. 

  • Tuesday, January 03, 2017

    Q: I have a military A20 and am looking for an adapter to a Boeing and McDonald Douglas airliners. Will this work? Ive heard mixed reviews. Also, what is your return policy in case it doesn't work. Thanks

    A: Yes, this will convert your military A20 to use in civilian aircraft.  You can return it in new condition within 30 days.

    The other route would be to get a new cable assembly either without Bluetooth or with Bluetooth.

  • Wednesday, February 25, 2015

    Q: Hi, I have a mil Bose X helicopter headset with U174 plug. Do you have one that does not split in to the 2 pins for fixed wing aircraft, but just extend to a U174? In other words a female plug for U174 and a male 174 ? Lastly will this work on this headset.

    A: Yes, we have the 5 foot Helicopter Extension Cable that will do exactly what you need.  This will extend the length of a civilian helicopter headset or a military headset since they both use the same U-174/U plug.

  • Wednesday, July 02, 2014

    Q: Does this part work without issue on a Flightcom E-13 ANR low impedance headset?

    A: You will need the David Clark H10-76 Conversion kit.  That should convert the Flightcom E-13 as well since it's the exact same technology as the David Clark H10-76.  Both the E-13 and the David Clark H10-76 have the M-87 microphone and the E-13 was built as a "copy-cat" of the H10-76.

  • Thursday, August 09, 2012

    Q: Hello. I have a military Helicopter helmet. I want to use it for civilian Helicopter use. Your low to high impediance adapter goes to a two prong civilian fixed wing. Do you have a low to high single prong or do I have to use a combination of adapters. Thanks

    A:

    Hey Kris! You're in luck, as we do carry the Low to High Impedance Adaptor (Helicopter)! This will convert a low impedance military headset with a single U92A jack for use in high impedance general aviation helicopters.

  • Tuesday, August 31, 2010

    Q: hi i have a helmet with u-174 plug.is this will fit for general aviation? and how long is it. thanks.

    A: If your helmet has a low impedance connection/headset and is not the David Clark H10-76 then this will work. The adapter is 3' in length.

  • Wednesday, April 02, 2008

    Q: I have a military helmet with a u93a/u plug that I want to adapt to general aviation radios. What adapter do I need? Thanks roger

    A: Which headset model do you have?  If you have the David Clark H10-76 you will need the David Clark H10-76 Conversion Kit.  Otherwise, you should be able to use this adapter for the conversion.

  • Monday, September 10, 2007

    Q: Hi. I have a mil-spec version of the Bose X headset that I'd like to use in commercial aircraft (BE-400). Will this adaptor work with the Bose X headset? Thanks.

    A: We have not specifically tested this adapter with the Bose Military headset, but it should work. If not, we have a 30-day return policy.

  • Wednesday, September 05, 2007

    Q: Hello, why will this adapter not work with the H10-76? Would it work if I use another low impedance mic with the H10-76, or is there another reason? Many thanks, Christoph Zimmermann

    A: No, this will not work for a David Clark H10-76. Instead, you will need the 1142-22 Electret Mic found here: http://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/2162 and the JB-08 adapter that is linked from that page.
