Great Headset, would buy again .....and did 35 years later when I needed a second one!

  • By Ed from Washington Island WI USA on Wednesday, January 13, 2016
  • Pros: Simple robust design
  • Review: It exceeded my expectations, since I bought the first one in the late 1970's.  I did purchase the electret microphone for this new headset as my original had that as well.

Too much background noise

  • By Ronald from Ellisville MS USA on Monday, September 29, 2014
  • Pros: Overall good quality
  • Review: I like this headset fine except that the microphone admits far too much high pitch background noise when the user speaks over the intercom or transmits over the radio. I would not buy it again. If I had not already written my name on it with a Sharpie, I would return it. I have another DC that cost a little more but has a different mike that works a lot better. I wish I had spent a little more.

David Clark gives every H10-30 owner a free mike!!!!!

  • By Ronald from Ellisville MS USA on Monday, September 29, 2014
  • Pros: Overall good DC quality
  • Review: After I gave the headset a poor review for the noisy mike, I discovered that many others have done the same, and that there is a retrofit mike available for $77. I recommend that David Clark give every purchaser of the H10-30 a complimentary microphone to make the headset comparable to its other great products. I am holding my breath, so hurry.

I would buy again

  • By John from Auckland North Island New Zealand on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
  • Pros: Excellent value
  • Review: Fit for purpose, comfortable and works well.

excellent and durable. mic amp needs adjustment before using.

  • By A Customer from USA on Saturday, January 25, 2014
  • Pros: Durable design. Strong fit without squeezing too much. Escellent mic.
  • Review: Using this headset for 4 years now over 3000 hours. It is still working like new. It is used in freezing unheated cockpit in winter and steaming hot cockpit in summer, sometimes with side windows open in flight. If the mic picks up noise, let it just barely touch the lips off center, speak loud and clear. Maybe the gain on the mic needs some adjustment if too much constant noise is picked up.

excellent and durable. mic amp needs adjustment before using.

  • By A Customer from USA on Saturday, January 25, 2014
  • Pros: Durable design. Strong fit without squeezing too much. Escellent mic.
  • Cons: The new molded cable assembly can not be repaired in case of damage. The old (classic) cable assembly was better. The mic will not operate in modern coms without bias dc voltage.

9 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Thursday, June 08, 2017

    Q: Can the H10-30 be adapted to use in helicopters ?

    A: Yes you can use the Standard Fixed Wing Headset to Helicopter Adapter or get the David Clark H10-36 Headset (for helicopters)

  • Tuesday, August 12, 2014

    Q: Does the H-10 30 headset also use a push to talk switch? The dynamic mic voice activation is good, but I would like a switch as well.

    A: The David Clark H10-30 does not contain a built-in push-to-talk switch, but it can be used with an external switch just fine!

  • Thursday, August 04, 2011

    Q: Where is the gain adjust screw in the mic?

    A:

    You can adjust the volume via a small hole just inboard of the mic inlet. Turn clockwise to increase and counterclockwise to reduce the gain.

  • Wednesday, August 18, 2010

    Q: I was told that the H10-30 headset is only good for open cockpit airplanes is that true? I plan on buying one for lessons in a Cessna 150. Could you give some clarification on this? Thanks!

    A: Because of the adjustable gain control on the microphone, this headset is definitely suitable for open-cockpit/high noise environments however it can be used in any aircraft.

  • Wednesday, February 20, 2008

    Q: What is the differences of the mic's on the h10-30 and the one on the h10-60 from a user perspective.

    A: The electret microphone (M-7A) on the H10-60 does a better job blocking out background noise, and it only activates when you speak.  The dynamic microphone on the H10-30 ( M-1/DC) is a fine unit, but it is older technology, and doesn't block out as much background noise.

    If you have the H10-30 Headset, you can upgrade to the electret microphone with the David Clark M-7/DC Retrofit Kit .  It is an electret microphone that attaches to a wire boom.  The M-7A only attaches to the flex boom.

  • Sunday, November 18, 2007

    Q: I am thinking of buying a headset for my PPL training. I am deciding whether to buy the H10-30 or H10-13.4 headset. The difference in prices is quite minimal. What are the pros and cons. I like the shape of the H10-30 microphone. Is the mic quality acceptable?

    A: Personally, I would recommend the H10-13.4 headset. It's the best selling passive headset in the world and for good reason. It's lightweight (13.4 ounces compared to 20 ounces for the H10-30), very comfortable, and has great noise reduction. I like the flexible boom mic instead of the wire mic for ease of placement next to your mouth. I owned and flew with the H10-13.4 for about 10 years before upgrading to an ANR headset a couple years ago. But, the H10-13.4 is still going strong as my passenger headset today.

  • Tuesday, September 18, 2007

    Q: Hello, My son is 14 and I am looking for a David Clark headset to give him for his birthday in October. He is learning to fly and I'd like to get him something that will be very comfortable on his young ears. What would you recommend?

    A: This headset would be fine, however you you might also want to consider the David Clark H10-13.4 which is a little bit lighter and has a better mic boom.

  • Wednesday, August 22, 2007

    Q: What is the length of the cord on the headset?

    A: The headset includes a 5 foot straight cord.

  • Friday, February 02, 2007

    Q: Can the H10-30 be adapted for computer use?

    A: Yes, with the PC Flight Simulator Headset Adapter that can be found at: http://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/3334
