Customer Reviews

The headset works very well and the workmanship is top notch.
Eddie
For me it came down to Bose A20 vs. DC Pro-X. I like quiet, so Bose A20's excellent Active Noise Reduction really appealed to me.

Also what a way to wear your sunglasses without sacrificing the noise cancellation offered by other over ear headsets!

This is an on-the-ear aviation headset competing with over-the-ear headset. I've tried Bose A20, Bose X, Lightspeed Zulu 2, and Sennheiser S1. Also briefly tried out non-ANR headsets, which are cheaper and of course don't compare well in terms of comfort and noise reduction level.

I am a student pilot, flying Cessna 172, the type of aircraft this headset is designed for. But I think DC Pro-X may be even better for jet pilots in quieter cockpit. DC's new marketing campaign seems to go in that direction as well. For jet pilots, Pro-X may be better suited than Bose A20 because of comfort, and ironically A20's superior noise reduction may actually become a disadvantage in quieter cockpits (several said A20 made it hard to hear their co-pilots).

DC Pro-X's construction/material quality is excellent. I like that it's made in the US. Without ANR, the seal is good and seems to block a good amount of noise already. This may partially contribute to the feeling its noise reduction isn't as dramatic as Bose A20's.

In terms of noise reduction level, I rank this DC Pro-X headset behind Bose A20, Bose X, and just behind Lightspeed Zulu 2. But DC Pro-X is much quieter than Sennheiser S1. The Sennheiser I tried just didn't reduce noise much.

In terms of comfort, DC-Pro X is best, followed closely by Bose A20, then the rest.

For me it came down to Bose A20 vs. DC Pro-X. I like quiet, so Bose A20's excellent Active Noise Reduction really appealed to me. A20 also has refined stereo sound with a good bass that serves music very well, as you'd expect from Bose. But pilots use headsets for communication, not music. What's the distinction, you ask?

The headset works very well and the workmanship is top notch. I expect that the unit will prove to be durable. The electronic noise cancellation reduces the ambient noise and allows crisp transmission and reception. I have used the headset with the electronic unit set to ON and OFF. In the OFF position the headset still performs very well. I found that in a jet cockpit such as Canadair Regional and MD11s, I really did not need the unit turned ON.

The Control Module does not use any additional wires and is in line with the two connectors. The controls are easy to use and the unit cannot be accidentally turned ON or OFF. It has a worthwhile feature "Auto Shutoff. This feature turns off the unit when the audio panel is turned off or headset is disconnected...or not in phone call. The preservation of battery power is outstanding. The Control Module is slightly larger than the two AA batteries placed in series.

Of relevance was the fact that the Bluetooth of the unit can work while the headset is disconnected from the airplane. Therefore, the MP3 feature and phone feature can be used outside of the aircraft while paired with a smart phone. I used the iPhone 5 which paired in seconds. This feature is useful if phone communications are required in a noise ramp with a GPU or APU running. Under these conditions the headset really allows crisp communications too. The head set will not Auto Shutoff while the phone line is active. Once the phone line is cutoff, the timer will Auto Shut-Off in 5 minutes. Auto Shut Off is a feature that can also be disabled.

The headset is comfortable. However, it takes a lot of trials to find the comfortable position. The headset when not worn is designed to spring load to a folded position.

I fly for a major airline. I have been flying for 37 years, so my hearing is not quite what it used to be. The headset provided by my airline has marginal speakers. I could hear the radio, but many times I didn't understand what they said. I want my own noise attenuating headset, but I am too cheap to spend 1000 dollars for a Bose. I read the reviews for the new David Clark DC pro-X and decided to buy it. I have not been disappointed. The sound is excellent, it is lightweight, and doesn't "clamp" to my head like a vise grip.overall, I am very happy with this headset.

I bought this headset with high hopes as the reviews looked good and my company refuses to let us use the QC15 with the UFlymike. So I narrowed down my selection between this bad boy and the Sennheiser HMEC 26-2 with the talk through. I went with this one as it was more than $200 cheaper.

First impression was that it was a decent noise cancelling headset however the bluetooth left some hissing that was unpleasant but whatever I probably won't use that in the cockpit. When compared to the bose QC-15 this headset is nowhere near the level of ANR you get with that bad boy, I don't know if it has to do with the on ear vs. over ear but it's just not there. I have not had a chance to try this in a reciprocating engine aircraft but plan to do so soon and will update. All of my testing thus far has been in the cockpit and cabin of a B744.

Pros:
-It's very very light weight and comfortable, even for 12+hours
-It provides an "ok" level of ANR so long as you work in an environment where you can wear the headset at all times
-It's small
-It seems rugged enough
-the mic works very well
-voices are mostly clear (except china, those guys are TERRIBLE)
-It's TSO'd

Cons:
-The ANR is not what I expected for the price
-There's not enough clamping force to give you a decent ANR/passive noise reduction experience, if you press on the headphones the ANR works noticeably better
-The Bluetooth makes a super annoying hissing noise
-It seems it's not ideally suited for a modern jet cockpit with lots of wind noise
-It is really hard to find the "sweet spot" that people talk about, then you inevitably have to remove one earseal to hear the other guy and all is lost.
