Very good with few downfalls

  • By AJL from Pittsburgh PA on Tuesday, November 20, 2018
  • Pros: Lightweight, excellent ANR, well-constructed, don't interfere with sunglasses or glasses.
  • Review: I sent my Lightspeed Zulu 2's in for repair and upgrade, so I used the opportunity to try something different. My only other experience with on-ear headsets is a pair of Telex 850's that worked well in the Citation 550/560. But they were not adequate in the EMB-145 at all, so I kept using my Lightspeeds. I've been loyal to Lightspeed through many headsets. first passive (QFR) and then ANR's. I've never had David Clarks, so I decided to see what the fuss is about.

    I'll start with the only true con I found in using them for 35 hours in two weeks in an E-145 and that's physical pressure on the ear. I've used over ear for most of my time flying, so I am not used to pressure on my ear. These Pro-X weren't terrible, but I definitely had sore ears after long periods of wearing them. I could be over-sensitive to that pressure, but its enough to make me consider not buying them.

    Other than that they were:
    -Lightweight: No over ear could be as light ever.
    - Well-made: I can see why the "green cans" have a following. These were very well made (and Made in the USA if that matters to you). The ear seals and headpad on these and all headsets are "Wear items" and they are the only parts that might not be very durable. But besides my ear pressure issue, everything else was comfortable. They also don't interfere with wire rim sunglasses at all, so if you wear those (or eyeglasses) it's a plus.
    -Good audio quality, even for music. Don't expect to be blown away, but they had much better music fidelity than I expected.
    -Bluetooth paired effortlessly and quickly, much better than my Lightspeeds.
    - And of course, great ANR. I was concerned that they wouldn't have enough noise reduction to drown out the notoriously loud Embraer 145 cockpit, but they did.

    The only other downside is that the cord is a bit short and the provided "belt clip" is a joke as far as finding a place to hang the battery box in the cockpit.

    These are a solid product, they might not be for me, but they are well-done. Way better at ANR than the Telex 850. Not as pricey but much better made than the new Bose Profllight and ANR that is probably as good ( on-ear v in ear, not a direct comparison) as the Bose.

Very good, not great

  • By A Customer from Dallas TX USA on Monday, June 18, 2018
  • Pros: Excellent comfort, sound quality, Bluetooth, and battery life
  • 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.

  • By William from Groton MA USA on Saturday, February 24, 2018
  • Pros: Very comfortable, good sound
  • Review:

Excellent performer. great comfort.

  • By Cris from Aurora CO USA on Monday, February 05, 2018
  • Pros: Comfort, quiet and performance.
  • 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 on Thursday, August 24, 2017
  • Pros: Exceptional ANR, light, doesn't have a lot of pressure, bluetooth, easy to store and comes with a great bag
  • 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.

Small and durable.

  • By SA from Richardson TX USA on Monday, August 14, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: Light weight and small headset, For pilot whom doesn't have enough space in their flight bag.

I would buy this product again

  • By Andrew from Taiwan on Friday, July 28, 2017
  • Pros: Good value for money
  • 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)
