surprisingly bad

  • By A Customer from The Woodlands TX USA on Sunday, April 14, 2013
  • Pros: comfortable
  • Review: I have been a loyal David Clark user for a 20+ years. Their customer service reputation is great but this one sucks. I have an older active noise cancelling 13.4 and it is actually much better than this one. When using in the R44 I find myself using earplugs under the headset. The noise cancelling works but seems weak. Way too much low frequency noise gets through. Lately I have also flown with a Lightspeed Zulu and it is much better. If I had another headset and wouldn't need it I would actually sent it to David Clark to see if there is something wrong.

Does what it says on the can

  • By Carlos from Glendale CA USA on Monday, March 18, 2013
  • Pros: comfortable, noise cancelling, good quality
  • Review: - At its price the headset should come with a bag
    - Battery life could be better
    - The coil cord is to short whether that be from the battery box to the cockpit connector, and also the headset to the battery box
    - However, these to me are not prohibitive remarks and all in all I am very happy with it. It is my first headset and I would absolutely recommend this product

excellent headset

  • By A Customer from Bullsbrook WA Australia on Wednesday, March 13, 2013
  • Pros: very quiet in an R22
  • Review: excellent noise cancellation, cord to the battery compartment could be a bit longer, had to purchase an extension...

They get the job done

  • By A Customer from Allendale NJ USA on Monday, November 07, 2011
  • Pros: Cheaper than Bose & Zulu, Good Passive Noise Cancelling
  • Review: I fly in Astar 350 helicopters, and am usually in the seat about 6 hours a day on average. I don't even use the noise cancelling to be honest... I can't really even tell that much of a difference. They provide ample enough passive noise cancelling from the suction of the ear cups themselves. After about 4 hours of wearing them, I find myself readjusting quite a bit because my one ear starts to get bothered. However, I think that for someone who is not going to be in the seat as much as myself, it would OK. Also, the noise cancelling may be a lot more useful when flying with the doors off, which I used to do a lot before I had these. I will probably end up getting a pair of Lightspeeds or the new Bose A20 so I can play music...and have continued lightweight comfort throughout my long usage of the headset during the day.

Perfect for helicopters!

  • By Gianfranco from Scurelle Italy on Friday, September 23, 2011
  • Pros: Straordinary noise abatement
  • Review: Headset for professional who fly everyday noisy a/c especially helicopters, good passive noise abatement and perfect with ENC activated.  Very useful the automatic on/off selection that once enabled permits to have the ENC activated just when the master is on...so you save battery instead of turning on/off the ENC manually!

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Saturday, November 23, 2013

    Q: I was hoping to use a H10-56HXL in a Cessna 172S. Can you tell me what kit/parts I need? Do I need a high/low impedence adaptor and/or a new mic, or just the plug converter? Thanks!!
