I exchanged it for the One X and was initially overwhelmed with it. I was able to fly with it a lot and compare it to the Bose A20 by trading with another pilot. I think it is at least equal in comfort, sound quality, and noise cancelling for less money.
The first time I hung in on the yoke an ear cup was knocked off. I have been careful not to hang it on anything since. The ear cups still fall off frequently and if they fall off in flight unless you have another pilot with you they are off until you land and have some time to work on therm.
DC customer service recommended replacing them with a new set of ear pads. I would pay $40 for new ear pads on a new $900 headset if I had some confidence that they will correct this problem but I didn't get any indication from DC customer service that the new ones are improved in any way.
The second issue I had was a tremendous squeal when plugged into the right side of a CAP G1000 equipped C182. It didn't happen in the other seat or in other aircraft.
I did find (with help) that the problem can be corrected by reducing the volume control to zero on both audio panels and then bringing them up slowly and not all the way.
I also found that it can be corrected by replacing the DC noise cancelling headset with another headset.January 27, 2018
