Very good, not great
by A Customer from Dallas TX USA 

Pros: Excellent comfort, sound quality, Bluetooth, and battery life
Cons: Wonky procedure to dim control module light, frequent ANR rumble
Review: After many months of being told I ought to try a nicer ANR headset than my Telex Airman 850, I realized this was a nice way of saying, "You're missing too many calls, old man."

After much research, and lot of questions asked, the winner was the Bose A20. Unfortunately I've hated over-ear headsets since, as a young CFI, I was forced to wear those old Dave Clark c-clamps for hundreds of painful hours back during the Reagan Administration. Happily, the new Dave Clark Pro-X headsets also came highly recommended by many fellow pilots, so I recently took the plunge.

On the upside, these are ridiculously comfortable headsets, even after a five-hour leg. In fact, though slightly heavier than the Telex, at the end of a long day, the padded headband of the Pro-X it far more comfortable than other featherweight headsets. A lightly sprung hinge at the top of the headband also contributes greatly in eleminating the old c-clamp headache. Ergonomically, I doubt you can find anything more comfortable.

Second, the noise reduction and sound quality is, as advertised, far superior to my old Telex ANR. I honestly casn't think of a radio call I've missed since purchasing these, and that, after all, is the reason I bought them. So in that sense, mission accomplished. The sound quality from the onboard microphone is also reported by others, both pilots and ATC, to be excelllent.

Though I have yet to use it extensively, Bluetooth pairing has been a snap, and the sound again excellent. Battery life has also exceeeded my expectations, as I find myself feeding it a diet of just 2 AA batteries every two or three weeks.

As for the downsides, the control module seems a bit heavy for the size of the cable supporting it. Time will tell if this leads to problems with breaks in its internal wiring. Second, the power On/Off LED switch blinks quite brightly in a darkened cockpit. I found the verbiage to put the LED into a"Dark Mode", a procedure described in DC's Quick Reference Guide (which I had to download, as one wasn't included in the box) to be a bit nebulous. It took me a frustrating 45 minutes to figure out a way to darken that light consistently.

However, the biggest annoyance with these headsets stems from one of their finer points of engineering. Dave Clark advertises that unlike most ANR headsets, the Pro-X features ANR mics on both the outside *and* the inside of the earphone, thus contributing to higher levels of noise reduction and sound quality. However, I find that because of the less-than-full ear coverage, and very light clamping pressure, the external mic sometimes seems to pic up sounds from inside the earphone (or maybe vice-versa) leading to frequent "ANR rumble".

Anyone who wore those early Bose ANR headsets will recall how, especially during noisy phases of flight, (think reverse thrust on landing) the external mic and noise ANR circuitry would combine in a feedback loop to create a nasty, if momentary rumble.

I get the impression that with the Pro-X, the light seal on the ears and the internal mic contribute to the creation of feedback loops between the headset's speakers and microphones, causing frequent rumbling on the Dave Clark even with a fresh set of batteries. Happily, a quick adjustment of the earphones to more fully cover the ears, or just pressing them down lightly against the ear, will cause the rumbling to cease. At least until it starts again a short time later.

It's not a deal-breaker, and I find myself simply making a quick adjustment to headset's fit when the rumble kicks in, but it does detract from the otherwise great performance of these headsets.

All in all, the Dave Clark Pro-X is a fine ANR headset with a few quirks that might benefit from a future tweak of its ANR software, or even just slightly larger earpieces.

Excellent performer. great comfort.
by Cris from Aurora CO USA 

Pros: Comfort, quiet and performance.
Cons: Heavy battery/control unit in line with cord.
Review: The David Clark Pro-X ANR headset lives up to the standards that the DC name has come to represent. The sound quality is great in both directions, the comfort and fit couldn't be any better, and the noise reduction is outstanding. Bluetooth performance is great, and the pairing process is easy. The only negative is that there is a control/battery unit that is in line with the cord. It has the power switch, left and right level controls, and the Bluetooth control in it. The issue is that with batteries installed, it tends to be a little heavy, and in flight, it hangs from the mic and headphone jacks. It's likely that sooner or later, this strain on the connectors will require repair or replacement. The Pro-X came with a belt clip for this unit, but that doesn't help in flight. Another foot or two of cord between the plugs and battery unit would, in many cases, allow the unit to be clipped to a side pocket or elsewhere to eliminate the strain on the cord and plugs.

AMAZING headset
by Goose from Miami FL USA 

Pros: Exceptional ANR, light, doesn't have a lot of pressure, bluetooth, easy to store and comes with a great bag
Cons: there's a green light that constantly blinks when the ANR is turned on. can be a pain when flying at night but all I do is turn it around and I cant even see it
Review: I've been using this headset for over 5 months now. I fly ERJ-170/175 and I really love them. I never owned DC, always had Lightspeed and really liked them but I kept having a problem with the Zulu 2 and the mic boom wouldnt stay in place and became a nuisance. I traded them in and used the credit for these headsets and glad I did. The ANR works great and the bluetooth is easier to use than the zulu 2.

I would buy this product again
by Andrew from Taiwan 

Pros: Good value for money
Cons: None so far
Review: Had some doubts regarding the battery life before purchasing the product, however, after using it for over a month, the battery is still going strong. The ANF is superb, much better than my previous headset -- Telex 850. Personally, I think this headset delivers similar performance to that of Bose A20 but at a fraction of the price. (Currently using it on A330 / A350 fleet)

A great investment in both your aviation profession and your hearing.
by Eric from Maryville TN USA 

Pros: Light weight and comfortable.
Cons: None at all.
Review: This headset was recommended to me by several First Officers. I purchased the David Clarke Pro-X ANR headset a couple months ago and have been using them on every working trip since. They are light weight and easy to wear for a long working day flying the 737. They cut the noise level down tremendously and make it much easier to hear and understand the ATC controllers. This purchase was undoubtedly one of the best moves I have ever made. Very well worth the money.

Pros: Too many to list, many compliments about how nice it looks
Cons: Yet to find.
Review: I have always purchased over the ear headset bc GA planes very loud. I was a little skeptical about this on the ear anr set and how well it would work. I now is this headset in E175 and it is phenomenal! Much smaller,
Comfortable, great sound, HIIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Does the job
by A Customer from Plymouth IN USA 

Pros: Compact size and comfort
Cons: None
Review: Although this is not a Bose A20, it definitely works well. It is a good trade off between the bulk of the Bose and the compact design of this headset. That being said, the Bose has superior noise cancellation over the David Clark but the smaller size and lower price of the David Clark makes the trade off worth it in my opinion.

Best I've owned
by ROBERT from Brookhaven GA USA 

Pros: Very light and comfortable. Super quiet. Moderately priced.
Review: Best headset I've owned. in 40 years of flying I have owned Telex, Plantronics, Sennheiser and Big David Clarks. This is the most comfortable I've used. The noise cancelling really works well. I can hear cockpit conversation even with the ear covered. I usually turn down the volume on the right ear so only noise cancelling is active on that ear. I hear ATC on the left.

by Jimmy from Richmond VA USA 

Pros: Lightweight and compact, fold-up storage with carrying case, Great ANR noise reduction and Bluetooth
Cons: Battery Life is about 40-50 hours and Bluetooth cuts out when ATC transmits or intercom is used but is how it supposed to work.
Review: David Clark does it again and ups the ante in ANR headsets.

I looked at the Bose A20 and Sennheiser headsets as a replacement for the Telex 850 Airman I have been using in the CRJ. The Telex 850 is nice but lacks ANR suppression at altitude with high speed wind noise. The Pro-X is much quieter than the 850 and with Bluetooth to boot.

The Pro-X came highly recommended from an Airbus Captain who was wearing it on a flight I jumpseated on and He let me try it. I was hooked instantly!

If you are looking for a great regional (CRJ) headset and don't want to pay a ton of $$$ for the above mentioned big name brands, please consider the D/C Pro-X. At only $695, this is a great price for a headset that IMHO is as just as good if not better than the A20.

Excellent Headset
by A Customer from Evergreen CO USA 

Pros: ANR, clear audio and good feedback
Cons: Have to leave ear cup off one side to hear other crew
Review: Bought to replace an older Sennheiser HMEC 45-KA that developed a hum near heated windshield. Recently transitioned from B777 to B787 so the noise cancelling is overkill but comm is very clear and it is very helpful while using HF with foreign RO's. I bought a 3.5mm adapter to use while deadheading and the ANR works very well, so now I leave my non aviation Bose ANR at home. Passive NR is a little too good for flight deck crew voice comm, so I resort to leaving one ear cup off one ear. Well made, quality product.

by A Customer from Dallas, Tx 

Pros: Good quality Tx/Rx, good ANC, good bluetooth functionality and sound quality, decent battery life.
Cons: Bulky control module, lights too bright.
Review: Used in 737 cockpit. Great headset overall. ANC blocks out the cockpit noise well enough. Night and day difference for combating fatigue and saving my hearing. That being said this is not a Bose, so have your expectations in the right place, but its also not as big and bulky as a Bose and isn't nearly as expensive for the same comm features. I don't have a loud radio voice and the mic noise cancellation works great when transmitting.
The blue tooth has great sound quality if you play music off your phone, auto cutout and gradual replay on music for radio and ICS comms is really smooth and a game changer for long hauls, on the jumpseat of course...
Battery life is about 3-4 trips before needing to swap out.
In the 73, you'll need a D-ring or something to hang the control/battery module out of the way. The lights on this control module are VERY bright and I ended up blacking them out with tape.
I would absolutely buy again.

by 737pilot from LAX 
Review: Noise reduction is perfect for me.  The $1100 Bose A20 NR was so good at NR that I couldn't hear other crew members without using "thru the headset intercom "or removing the headset. The Pro-X ANR is more comfortable and not too heavy even after 4-5 hour flight and I can hear others in the cockpit talk without removing the headset.

by Jeff from Benton Harbor MI USA

Great for the B777 and B737
by B.C. from Newport Beach CA 

Review: I have one of the David Clark Pro X headsets that I use in the B777. I know there are lots of 737 pilots looking for suitable headsets since the 737 is a bit on the noisy side, but not noisy enough to warrant something like a Bose A20. The usual airline standard Plantronics doesn't really attenuate noise and in the past, 737 pilots often added a mic to the regular Bose music headset since that was a cheaper solution to a "real" aviation headset (I call it a"FrankenBose"). The David Clark Pro X is perfect for noisy 737's. There are more than a few pilots using them now on the relatively quiet 777. The DC is nice in that there is no left and right side, so it works well in the left or right seat without having to move the mic around. Its eaiosy to wear on the outboard ear with the inboard ear uncovered for cross cockpit communications. I usually just leave the ANR function turned off since the 777 isn't very noisy. If the other pilots conversation is getting too boring in cruise, putting on the headset over both ears is a wonderful relief. I can neither confirm, nor deny, that it has excellent BlueTooth music audio while high over the boring expanse of the North Pacific Ocean.

Great active noise cancelling, comfortable, Bluetooth, stereo/mono, compact and easy to stow in case that comes with the headset.

Why did I wait so long!?
by Awol from Lake Mary FL USA 

Pros: Sound quality, comfort, size, construction, and Bluetooth ease of use
Cons: Cord could be just an inch or so longer
Review: After flying with DCs during my 20 years in the AF, I knew fully well the quality and durability of DC products. Having said that, I have no idea why I waited so long to purchase these excellent headsets.  They fit comfortably, they are well constructed, they sound amazing, they are sized perfectly, and they are a great value. I highly recommend these Dave Clarks for GA or commercial aviation.

DC Quality
by A320av8r from Charlotte, NC 

Pros: Noise attenuation, comfort.
Cons: None
Review: I have used the Telex 850 for several years on the A320 series aircraft. It is a good headset but it broke. I got the DC Pro-X after trying my F/O's on during a flight. I liked it so much that I immediately bought one too.
After a long 5 leg day on an A319, I realized that my ears were not ringing and my hearing was normal. I was definitely less fatigued.
The DC Pro-X is "the" next generation airline flightdeck headset. The attenuation is superb, the comfort is incredible and the construction is David Clark. As I stated earlier, the Telex 850 is good, but this is great.

Review: I'm a student pilot and was having trouble sometimes understanding the controllers' communications. My instructor suggested trying a noise reducing headset. I researched all the brands and decided the DC Pro-X

Great overall airline headset
by 73_pilot from USA 

Pros: Comfort, ease of microphone positioning, clarity of ATC transmissions, compact storage
Cons: Lower quality sidetone and Bluetooth, no cord management options
Review: The DC Pro-X is a great overall airline headset. I've owned mine for about 2 months now and love it. The ear cups are soft, it's really light, and you hardly know it's there after hours of flying. Plus there's no clamping like the Sennheiser-25 I had. The noise canceling and sound fidelity is about 85% of the quality of the Sennheisers but it's a more than fair trade off for comfort. The only downsides are the tinny-sounding sidetone on the intercom (B737) and the lack of cord clip. It's a big, bulky control module that just hangs down and pulls on the jacks. The Bluetooth works great, although it could be engineered to higher standards; it introduces a lot of static. The auto cutout feature should be made optional. It cuts out the music so much that I just finally turned it off, and only use bluetooth now while flying over isolated areas.

The comfort this headset delivers trumps all those things, however, and makes this one of the best headsets on the market, especially when it comes to value.

Great ANR Headset
by Michael from Keller TX USA 

Pros: Quiet, comfortable, clear communications, sturdy construction
Cons: none
Review: The Pro-X ANR Headset is very comfortable. Solid David Clark construction. I fly the 737-800. The older aircraft without the vortex generators on the nose are quite noisy, especially at higher IAS. This cancels out almost all background noise, but I can still hear the F/O without much trouble. Very clear communications with adjustable volume (defaults to high when powered up). I really don't have any complaints. I would highly recommend this headset.

Great Headset
by Chris from Fleming Island FL USA 

Pros: Cost. Lightweight. Bluetooth
Review: I tried the Bose, Telex, and Lightspeed ANR headsets before I settled on the David Clark's. While the other ones are top notch and great headsets the David Clark's were perfect for what I was looking for. Compact and lightweight (much smaller than the bigger Bose / Lightspeed). The Bluetooth syncs with my iphone or iPad easy and listening to music during a redeye is awesome. I'd recommend these headsets to anyone looking for good ANR and on a budget. Try them you will like them.

Very Good Headset
by Scott from Fishers, IN 

Pros: Very good noise reduction, solid construction, comfortable
Cons: Noise reduction may be a little too good
Review: I have used the Sennheiser HMEC 45 for about 15 years and it was a very good headset. I tried the new Sennheiser HMEC 46 but it was inferior quality both in construction and function. In contrast, this headset is solidly built, very comfortable, and extremely quiet. The noise reduction is on the verge of being too good as it is sometimes difficult to hear the other pilot in the cockpit. For someone younger that still has all of their hearing, this is probably not an issue. The radio clarity is good and the bluetooth streaming function is a nice feature and works exactly as advertised. My only complaint is that the L/R volume controls become reversed if the headset is worn with the boom mic on the right ear (F/O). If you keep both sides at the same level this is not an issue but I keep the side facing the other pilot off to better hear him. (A-320)

Review: I've tried the Bose A20, Telex 850, and the Ligtspeed Sierra ANR headsets and while they were all very nice the Pro-X beat them all hand down. Super comfortable and light weight. ANR is great for a 737 NG. I really like the Bluetooth function. It works perfectly and they are priced mid-range so you are not breaking the bank. This is a great headset from David Clark so you know they will be durable. You have to try them if you are in the market for ANR headsets. Also the folks at were great. I returned my 850's and they shipped the Pro-X the same day. Thanks for the quick turn around.

works well in piston aircraft
by jg from Santa Fe NM USA 

Pros: small, lightweight, doesn't interfere with sunglasses
Cons: ANR "on" light difficult to see in bright light.
Review: I tried this headset because my old over-the-ear H10 13.4 was very uncomfortable after a couple of hours because it pressed on my sunglass temple pieces. So far I've used the new headset in a 172, a 182, and a Remos. In all cases the performance with noise cancellation on was comparable to my old headset. Comm is very understandable even with noise cancellation off. ANR battery pack is a bit klunky, but I guess that just goes with having ANR. In bright light it's difficult to see if the ANR is on or off, and it would be good if the ANR turned off when the headset was unplugged.

Works well in the 737
by Douglas from Miami FL USA 

Pros: Simple enough a cave man could figure out how to use it.
Cons: Battery powered and control device needs to be secured to something. I use a big rubber band to secure to the windowshade rail.
Review: I was looking for something between the over the ear noise canceling headsets and the earplugs I was using. We don't have a hot mic interphone system, so the premium over the ear headsets are too much and interfere with cockpit communication. This DC Pro-X is just right in the middle. Most of the time I can hear the other pilot just fine. If the other pilot doesn't talk too loudly, I can easily slide the one side back just a bit to the "sweet spot" that allows me to hear intercockpit communications and still have some noise cancellation.

David Clark breaks out
by Mark from Concord NH 

Pros: Price, construction, ANR, compact size, made in the USA

This is not your typical David Clark headset. They've always made durable, reasonably priced headsets, but not always the most comfortable. This headset is typical DC when it comes to durability and price, but way more comfortable than anything they've made in the past. The ANR works great, once you find the sweet spot. I fly a Hawker 700, which has lots of wind noise in the cockpit. I had a Sennheiser HMEC-46, and that didn't have enough noise reduction, but the Pro-X works perfectly. It should be perfect for such aircraft as the PC-12, King Air, Citation, etc. The bluetooth works well, and you're able to stream music. The only thing I don't like is that you can't turn off the automatic music mute function.

The only gripe I have about this headset is that the head band needs one more "click" of extension. I have a giant head, and there is a bit of pressure from the head band when I'm wearing this. One more bit of extension would have been better.

Had my hopes set too high
by A Customer from VA USA 

Pros: Less weight, good engine noise reduction/works well in prop aircraft, less to no pressure on sunglasses,
Cons: **still uncomfortable after long flights**, passive reduction is minimal,

I have been flying around with a passive headset for years and finally made the jump to the ANR headset world. I am currently flying Learjets and was leaning towards an over the ear model and stumbled across this headset days after it came out. The only review available was done in conjunction with AOPA magazine. I watched their video and was impressed. However, after using the headset for two months I feel like maybe I should have gone for the Lightspeed or Bose headsets I originally had my eyes on.

I used the headset in a King Air C90 first. It worked well in that platform and after swapping with the Co-pilot seemed to block out as much noise as the Lightspeed Zulus. However, I have not enjoyed my experience with them as much in the jets. Our jets don't have much insulation and tend to be a bit noisier than average and I feel like I am having to turn the volume up due to wind noise in the background. I have also used the headset in a twin engine piston and found the noise reduction levels to be good. but overall the exterior noise level seemed a bit high.

In addition, I tested the music feature using Bluetooth and while the setup was easy I found that the fade in after the auto cutoff for comms is a little long but acceptable. Otherwise works great on droning level flights.

As for comfort, I find that my ear starts to hurt after about 3 hours of flight time and I end up constantly readjusting the headset. I have tried multiple configurations but I have yet to find a sweet spot. Still hopeful in this regard but I think the clamping pressure is just a bit too much with little reward in passive noise reduction. However, I would say that the discomfort is less that the average over the ear headset especially when wearing sunglasses.

David clark emphasized passive noise reduction in their informational video but I found it to be minimal.

Battery life seems good. I have changed them once in two months and fly about 50 hours a month. The yellow and red lights can be hard to notice but are good indicators of low batteries.

Overall, I would say not a bad headset but just wasn't quite what I was looking for overall. I was on the fence about giving the headset a 4 but the discomfort on my ears for an over the ear headset is really significant to me.

David Clark Pro- X Headset
by Robin Parnaby from Melbourne/Victoria Australia 

Pros: Another excellent David Clark product,then what else should we expect,from David Clark
Cons: None really,when compared with my Sennheiser lightweight headsets
Review: Just received my David Clark Pro-X last week. I ordered it from David Clark direct. Really good service I reckon, ordered it 3 weeks ago, delivered all the way down under (Australia).   I have used them whilst operating Beech Kingair's Cessna Citations, and other corporate turbine and jet aircraft.  They also work very well in the high end area of GA aircraft as well, Bonanza's, Cirrus etc....

8/14/13: Just an update on my Pro-X. I have just tried them while flying a Cessna Caravan, Kodiak, Pilatus PC12, TBM 850, and Piper Meridian. All I can add is that David Clark have really outdone themselves this time in producing an excellent light weight headset for General Aviation.

compared to other dc headsets
by chuck from mead, wa. 

Pros: light weight,comfortable,good looking,fairly quiet
Cons: not much better if any than the H10's
Review: I just received these yesterday, I went for a scenic flight to test them, at first out of the box I noticed they were very light weight and comfortable. I then tried them with the ANR at my office with a rather loud and obnoxious air conditioner and was quit surprised by how well they took out the background noise.  I was impressed, then we went flying and when starting the airplane I was once again impressed by the way the noise was reduced by using the ANR feature it was like night and day.   But once in the air I tried my other david clarks H-10 I think, and compared back and forth several times, and found that the real noise difference between them was very close and maybe the H10 a little bit better so I did this back and forth a few times and came to the conclusion that the H10's covered my ears better and kept out the noise.  The Pro-X doesn't cover the ear as well and the ANR function cancels the noise that gets by the ear piece and makes them about equal.  So in my humble opinion all I gained was a lighter more comfortable and better looking headset for the $350.00 difference.  All and all they are a fine headset with David Clark quality and if you are not trying to save money then try them.  Otherwise the old ones are just fine.   Also you should know that I am flying a rather loud Cessna 172 180 h.p. with power-flo exhaust, probably these would be fine in a quieter environment.
