Q: I only bought just the adapter cable and my headset did not work in a general aviation plane. Would buying the microphone make it work? If so which microphone should I buy?
A: Yes, you will need the 1142-22 Electret Mic. This will allow you to transmit.
Q: Does this adapter also change the impedance required to use the 10-76 in a general aviation fixed wing aircraft?
A: Yes. The David Clark H10-76 Conversion Kit will convert your military headset into a civilian (general aviation) headset with the standard PJ dual plugs and high impedance.
Q: I have a H10-76 headset that I was issued, will this conversation kit still allow me to use the my headset with military aircraft?
A: Yes, you will just need to remove the adapter and swap the microphone when switching from civilian to military use. The adapter is super easy to remove/add and the microphone is just attached with a couple of small screws. Keep an eyeglass size screw driver handy in your flight bag and you should be good to go.
Q: Will this conversion kit work on an H10-66 headset, or do I only need the plug adapter?
A: If you would like to use the David Clark H10-66 in civilian fixed wing aircraft you would use the Low to High Impedance Adapter.
Q: I want to order the conversion kit for the H10-76 headset, does this come with a mic cover?
A: Yes, a foam microphone cover is included.
Q: I have numerous H10-76XL that I need to plug into a PC Sound board without modifying the headset. Is there an adapter or converter box I can get for that purpose? Thanks
A: You would first need to convert them over to civilian fixed wing headsets with this conversion kit and then you would need the PC Flight Simulator Headset Adapter.
Q: Can you accidentally install the new mic upside down/or backwards or will it only work one way?
A: It could potentially be installed upside down, but if that happened you would just need to loosen the two little screws and flip it over.
Q: I have a H10-76 military headset. I want to be able to use my military headset for helicopter flight school where we fly the R-22's. Will this conversion kit make my headset work in the helicopter?
A: If you are going to be flying a R-22, you should just be able to get the 1142-22 Electret Mic instead of buying the whole kit.
