Good Quality Headset

  • By Art Phllips from Anderson, SC on Monday, August 14, 2017
  • Pros: Comfort, well built-not cheap plastic. Mic. boom is great.
  • Review: Bought this one as Prev. Owned. It is in like new condition. New Gel covers were included and I changed them out. Set is very comfortable. Still having to experiment with best position of mic. as it occasionally cuts out on me according to my crew members. Mic does not appear defective, but will continue to work with it to get it right. I use it in Civil Air Patrol aircraft primarily Cessna 182 ad 172 aircraft. Will probably order cloth covers for cold weather use.

it what the government uses

  • By Alan H. from henderson nevada on Friday, April 29, 2016
  • Pros: Hi. they are confortable, not too heavy, quiet, still work after 20 years
  • Review: I bought mine 15 years ago. It only has one volume adjustment. I am surprised they still make them. I am in CAP now and it works great. They were in the flight bag for 10 years and they still worked great. I forget what I paid back in the 90's but I am sure it was not 350.  You still you get what you pay for. If you notice in any military movies they are wearing Dave Clark headsets. I would buy these again.  When I bought mine the ear gel seals and the cloth covers came with the headset. Also it came with a very nice headset bag that I still use. Love them

I have four headsets; the DC H10-60 is Fabulous

  • By A Customer from East Coast USA on Saturday, February 27, 2016
  • Pros: Widely adjustable, super comfortable, flexible rotary or fixed wing use. This is the Apex top model of the David Clark passice headset line
  • Review: I have two Bose X ANR sets, as well as an AVcomm AC-900PNR. The Bose were way more $$. I bought the H10-60 because I'd never owned a DC headset, and this one offered ability to swap out the cords for either rotary or fixed wing applications. I fly fixed SEL. I actually prefer the H10-60 over the Bose. ( I bought the AVcomm for their unique push button on the dome feature so I can easily use it with a handheld transceiver). So, what do I like about the H10-60?

    The quality of the domes, wiring, headband, etc are simply outstanding. The Bose and AVcomm seem "plasticky" and flimsy in comparison.

    The comfort of the domes with gel pads is amazing. Also, the H10-60 offers far more adjustment options than the cheaper DC H10-13.4, H10-30, and other models. When you buy the H10-60 you are buying THE premium top of the line David Clark passive head set.

    I love the mic boom. All my other headsets have a flexible stem, and that works fine. The mechanism in the H10-60 with metal arm AND flexible stem gives you the best of both.

    If you are looking at passive headsets, spend a little extra and go for either the David Clark H10-60 or perhaps the H10-20. Yeah, I know the model H10-13.4 is their most popular model, and that may well be. A more careful analysis will reveal that the H10-60, while more expensive, offers far more and is a better value.

    Buy the H10-60, and you will be a happy camper, and when you end up comparing it to other headsets, including DC models, you will find others will probably wonder why they did not pop for the H10-60 top model. I will say that it probably does not outperform the latest and best active noise reduction headsets, but then those all cost > $1000.

  • By Richard from Placerville CA on Saturday, May 03, 2014
  • Pros:
  • Review: This is my third Dave Clark headset and quality remains outstanding. The headset is rugged and well built, just like the others, that have each lasted many years. In use, it performs well as a passive headset, but performance lags far behind the ANR products, and comfort is not great. So, after using the H10-60 for three months, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the Sennheiser S1 Digital ANR Headset.

Versatile headset for the price

  • By windknot54 from Anchorage, AK USA on Monday, January 20, 2014
  • Pros: ability to switch between airplane and helicopter; reasonable price
  • Review: As expected from Dave Clark, the H10-60 is good quality headset. I chose this model to allow me to use the same headset in both GA fixed wing and rotary aircraft, by simply switching the chord. For the price, I believe DC should have also included: 1) the chord for use in a helicopter as well as the GA chord; and 2) a simple cloth carrying bag to keep the headset clean. For a couple of bucks more, it would have made a positive impact to me.

Very good relation price/quality

  • By A Customer from Houston TX USA on Monday, December 09, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: Totally met my expectations

Works Great.

  • By Dave from Bristow VA USA on Tuesday, November 19, 2013
  • Pros: Comfort, clarity, can switch chord for use in rotary wing.
  • Review: This is the best headset I have used to date. I bought this so I didn't have to worry about availability of headsets when renting aircraft. Also, plan on moving into Rotary wing in a year or so.

Versatile headset for the price

  • By windknot54 from Anchorage, AK USA on Monday, January 20, 2014
  • Pros: ability to switch between airplane and helicopter; reasonable price
  • Cons: only fair noise control; gets uncomfortable after a couple hours

    Q: I'd like to use this headset on casa 212 aircraft,which only has one socket for its plug.i'm not sure which adapter should i use.

    A:

    Hello Basri! Is this a civilian or military Casa 212? With a single plug it sounds like it is military, and in that case you would need a High to Low Impedance Adaptor. If you can find out exactly which type of plug and whether or not the aircraft utilizes high or low impedance, please let us know and we will be more than happy to help you further! You can reach us at: service@mypilotstore.com

  • Thursday, October 06, 2011

  • Saturday, September 25, 2010

    Q: Whith wish cord coms the H10-60???

  • Saturday, March 13, 2010

    Q: H10-60 has a flex/wire boom and H10-13.4, has all flex boom what is the Best way and Is there any special benefits by having flex/wire boom

    A: There really is no best way, it is a matter of personal preference. The flex booms can be adjusted in any desired way. The flex/wire booms are a little less adjustable on the flex part itself, however the articulating wire part of the boom can be locked into place so that the mic is always a certain distance from your mouth.

  • Saturday, March 13, 2010

    Q: H10-60 has a Electret Mic and H10-30 has a Dynamic mic what is the difference between these two and what is the Best one

    A: Electret microphones are by far the most popular for aviation use. They are smaller and lighter than other microphone elements and work by placing a charged, flexible diaphragm a given distance from a fixed plate. Sound waves created by speaking into the microphone cause the diaphragm to vibrate, changing the distance between the diaphragm and the plate. Those changes are translated into electrical signals and transmitted.

    With Dynamic microphones, a coil of wire is connected to the diaphragm, which is in a strong magnetic field. Sound waves moving the diaphragm and coil generate an electrical signal that varies in voltage with the amplitude and frequency of the sound waves. Because dynamic mics use a magnetic field, they are susceptible to electromagnetic interference, which can garble transmissions. Dynamic mics for aviation use are carefully shielded to minimize the chances of such interference.

  • Tuesday, January 12, 2010

    Q: My son is in the aviation program at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. He is will begin flying in a couple of weeks. I am looking at the David Clark H10-60 for him. I do not want to buy him a cheap headset and then have to buy a more expensive one later. Do you have any other suggestions or is this a good intermediate to start with? Thank you for your help. Greg

    A: To be honest, unless your son is planning on going back and forth between flying fixed wing and helicopters (this headset has a dome jack to allow the plugs to be swapped out for both), we would recommend going with the David Clark H10-13.4 as it's the best passive headsets that we carry in this price range. It's more lightweight and will probably be more comfortable during flight training.

  • Thursday, December 10, 2009

    Q: so the model H10-60 headset is for fixed wings

  • Thursday, October 29, 2009

  • Monday, June 22, 2009

    A: No it does not.

  • Tuesday, October 21, 2008

    Q: Is the H10-60 equippped for cell phone use or is an adapter needed?

    A: The H10-60 does not come with a cell phone interface.

  • Thursday, January 17, 2008

    Q: what makes these different from the 13.4 David Clark models?

    A: The H10-60 has the ability to change the cords so that it can be used in both fixed wing and helicopters. In addition, the H10-60 is about six ounces heavier than the H10-13.4, has the flex/wire boom instead of the all flex boom found on the H10-13.4, has about 2 dB of extra passive noise cancellation, and has dual volume controls

  • Sunday, December 09, 2007

    Q: What cords or adapters are required to make this headset fully functional for use in a helicopter?

    A: If you already own this headset and want to use it in a helicopter you would need the fixed wing to helicopter adapter. If you don't already own this headset, you can get the helicopter model here: David Clark H10-60H Headset.

  • Tuesday, November 13, 2007

  • Tuesday, November 13, 2007

    Q: I fly in New Zealand, is there any reason why this headset would not work in NZ aircraft?

  • Friday, October 12, 2007

  • Sunday, August 19, 2007
