Good Quality Headset
by Art Phllips from Anderson, SC 

Pros: Comfort, well built-not cheap plastic. Mic. boom is great.
Cons: Working to prevent microphone transmit "skip"
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 

Pros: Hi. they are confortable, not too heavy, quiet, still work after 20 years
Cons: i dont have any
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 

Pros: Widely adjustable, super comfortable, flexible rotary or fixed wing use. This is the Apex top model of the David Clark passice headset line
Cons: A little more expensive. Weight is 22 oz. but that reflects the superb premium construction and materials
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 
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 

Pros: ability to switch between airplane and helicopter; reasonable price
Cons: only fair noise control; gets uncomfortable after a couple hours
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.

by Dave from Bristow VA USA 

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.

Adequate But....
by A Customer from Smithfield UT USA 

Pros: Price - general quality of the set
Cons: Poor cushions
Review: The headset audio works well enough in the aircraft. The rubber cushions have a bad habit of falling off when you adjust the headset location - I have had to make several Civil Air Patrol flights with hard plastic against my temple -- not real comfortable. I am not sure what the deal is with that. I probably would not buy this model again - for now I am stuck with it.

by James from Dothan AL USA 

Pros: Communications are clear and noise is significantly reduced. I even use them regularly at home for reading while others watch TV. I am well pleased with them.
Cons: Initally the headset seemed a bit heavy but I wear them for one to two hours with comfort.
Review: The H10-60 Headset works very well and they are comfortable to wear. Volume controls work well, and I am able to hear all communications clearly. They adjust easily and have met all my expectations.

Outstanding headset!
by A Customer from Enterprise AL USA 

Pros: Dual volume adjust knobs; Very comfortable; Clear transmissions
Cons: None
Review: Great headset! The H10-60 is lightweight, has a comfortable fit and feel, and helps to greatly reduce the amount of noise heard during flight. Transmissions are sent and received very clearly, and the dual volume adjust knobs are very convenient. For those not wanting to jump up and spend a very high price on active noise canceling headsets, I would highly recommend this pair. Great for everyday use!

Nothing new
by A Customer from Vaxholm Sweden 

Review: After using my D-C 10-30 for roughly 10 years it was time for new set.  The 10-60 was as expected, great. New ear pads with perfect fit even with Sun glasses on. Much better than the H10-30. I do fly 900 hours a year in the B737-800 so if they don't deliver I would never keep  them.

Lives forever
by A Customer from NYC, NY 

Pros: Does everything right and lasts forever.
Cons: Could be a little lighter
Review: I wanted to economize so I bought a used set that's several years old. Time doesn't seem to matter. They last forever, work great, feel comfortable and just keep on ticking. My hearing is not equal in both ears, so the separate volume controls really help me to perceive equal sound in both ears. Only possible complaint is that its heavier than some other models, but its still comfortable because of adjustability.

It's a David Clark
by Colin from Austin TX USA 

Review: If you know David Clark, then you know this headset. The microphone is exceptional though the pickup is a little low. There are two volume knobs, one for each ear, to which I don't really see a need for cause one would have done just fine. Great headset all around - It's a David Clark

Review: This product has met all my expectations and I would purchase it again. As soon as I acquire my personal aircraft, I will equip it with these headsets. I just have not had any problems with this product and my head is moderately large. (7 5/8ths) They are as advertised, comfortable, easy to use and extremely dependable.

OK but not Bose
by Bob from Birmingham AL USA 

Pros: Clarity, price, reliability
Cons: Bulkiness, weight, ear tension
Review: I purchased this headset prior to purchasing a second Bose headset following the $150 price incentive on the Bose. As a second headset or passenger headset I find this is an economical option. The headset is clear and fairly comfortable although somewhat bulky. It was still a wise purchase at the time.

these are NOT noise cancelling
by Glen from Hotchkiss CO USA 

Pros: comfortable (not tight on the head like lightspeed
Cons: does not have noise cancelling feature
Review: Mis advertised as it reportedly has "Noise cancelling headset" but actually does not. I read the fine print and it says "Noise cancelling microphone" for whatever good that is. I like the headset and will not return it as it is actually as good as my lightspeed XL 15 which IS noise cancelling so I'm happy.

A "no-reservations" great purchase!
by Richard from Randwick NSW Australia 

Pros: Quality build
Cons: none
Review: There are times, far and few between, when the wisdom of purchasing something never has to be questioned. For me buying the H10-60 headset is the perfect example of money well spent. They're dependable quality is obvious, from the design of the mic to the comfort of the ear pads and even to the reassuring no-nonsense green finish, which for some reason says these headsets are THE definitive headsets. The noise abatement and sound clarity are excellent. And knowing I can adapt the chord for helicopter use is great. Even if you thought that in the future you might buy another headset, I bet you'll still love your reliable David Clarks..and end up using them anyway!

"The best buy I ever made!"
by Tony from Long Beach, CA 

Pros: Built strong, excellent PNR, outstanding customer service
Cons: More adjustments to make it feel comfortable
Review: My first headset that I bought was the David Clark H10-13.4 which everyone on the street was talking about. I usually would listen to other people's opinion and review regarding about the product. The H10-13.4 was ok, it was a little tight for my big head. Then I bought the David Clark H10-60 (older generation). The H10-60 has a little more adjustment to make it fit on my head better. There's four little clips from the headband to the side of the head cup which allows me to adjust how tight it will hit against my ears. As for the headpads, the older generation headset I own did not have the new super foam headpad. Instead, it was the old school pillow gel headpad. Comparing between the two, I felt the simple headpad felt more comfortable than the super foam one. I guess it's because of the extra cotton/foam hitting against my head when the headset is tight as it is. I guess that's the problem but hey, it might not be a problem for others so you'll have to try the headset out for yourself to know. The noise canceling was outstanding, not the best, not the worst, but simple. Simple enough that the frequency outside doesn't destroy your ear drums! Overall, this is probably the best headset I own so far and will continue to use it until it breaks (which I highly doubt). Did I also mention David Clark has outstanding customer service?? The headset may look dull, but it's built to last longer than you! It's mean and green like the Hulk! But remember! You'll have to wear it and decide what you want to use on your own. Reviews and opinions are there to give you references, not to dictate your choices. Everyone's opinion/review is different, you'll have to find that on your own!

Great headset from David Clark
by Kent Magnuson from Kearney,NE 

Pros: Sturdy
Cons: none
Review: I have had 2 of these over the years and presently have a new one for passengers to use for intercom. These can be enhanced for quiet by simply taking apart the earcups, unmounting the speaker and stuffing foam rubber (free from the trash can) al around inside of earcup. Then place the speaker, unmounted, and replace the cover. You will have a much quieter headset and save yourself some money. This does the same thing as the $40 Oregon Aero noise cancelling system...for free. These are sturdy and what one expects from David Clark.

On Wednesday, June 05, 2013 a customer asked:
what is the part number for a extra straight cord set for the H10-60
A: The David Clark 5 Foot Straight Cord with PJ-055 / PJ-068 Plugs is our part number 8349.

On Thursday, April 18, 2013 a customer asked:
I am looking to buy the H10-60 headset. I just want to make sure that the fixed wing cords and plugs are included...correct? If I want to purchase the helicopter cord as well, do I need to purchase other plugs as well? Or are the same plugs used for both fixed wing and helicopter?
A: Yes, this includes the fixed wing cord/plugs.  If you want to use it in a helicopter, you would either need to replace the cable assembly with the Coiled Cord for Helicopters or get the Standard Fixed Wing Headset to Helicopter Adapter.

On Thursday, September 20, 2012 a customer asked:
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.

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:

On Thursday, December 15, 2011 a customer asked:
What is the warranty on DC H10-60?

On Saturday, March 13, 2010 a customer asked:
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.

On Saturday, March 13, 2010 a customer asked:
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

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.

On Tuesday, January 12, 2010 a customer asked:
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

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.

On Thursday, December 10, 2009 a customer asked:
so the model H10-60 headset is for fixed wings
A: The H10-60 has the ability to change the cords so that it can be used in both fixed wing and helicopters.

On Thursday, October 29, 2009 a customer asked:
What is the weight of the H10-60 headset.
A: The H10-60 weighs around 21 ounces with the cord.

On Monday, June 22, 2009 a customer asked:
Does the H10-60 have the stereo capabilities of the H10-13S? Thanks.
A: No it does not.

On Tuesday, October 21, 2008 a customer asked:
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.
