The M-55 electret microphone offers enhanced noise reduction for crystal clear voice transmission. The DC ONE-X is built with a lightweight alloy headband for an ergonomic design and rugged build. The design allows for compact storage when collapsed. Includes a David Clark headset case. Uses 2 AA batteries.

Excellent!
Very comfortable, lots of adjustment range. They are much more comfortable for me than my Bose-X headsets (I have two Bose-X headsets). The bose headset does not have enough headband extension for my big head, so the ear cups were always riding on my earlobe. The DCs expand enough that the ear cup can rest comfortably around my ear. The noise cancelling is excellent and because of the better fit on me, much better than my Bose-X. And, you get the legendary Dave Clark customer service to at no extra charge!

My wife loves it!
Suzie has given up the Bose and fallen for the DC1 X
Less pressure and as good sound quality.

Great for multiple ages
I bought it for my 7 year old daughter and she loves it. Fits her and my wife well. They won’t let me try it. The way it folds up and the carry bag is nice and convenient. Takes up less space then other headsets in a flight bag. My daughter turns it on and off easily by herself.

Great headset
I have flown about 50 hours in a RV12 with these and loved them. The longest flight was about 3 hours and I found them very comfortable. I personally like the ANR on these better than the A20s. I will say the ANR is slightly more effective on the A20s. But the David Clarks had a better balance letting in the noises that I wanted to hear. I definitely believe it to be very hard to judge between the top 3 headsets. But for me I like the DCs.

Wonderful comm !
Light, comfortable. Sound quality is wonderful. I fly the Citation XL. Too noisy for comfortable comm without over the ear design. I don’t miss any calls now :-)Bluetooth pairing is a little too hard to pair, but I never use that feature. Plus, the DC is a classic and professional look. Very nice.

Turboprop user
I read a few favorable reviews on the One-X and decided to give them a try. I currently have Bose A20 and recently tried the Bose ProFlight. Only have a few flights so far in a Meridian and a couple in the Bonanza but I have to say I like this headset. More comfortable than I expected and the audio quality is good. I like the volume buttons for left and right.
So how do they compare to the A20's? Both with ANR, the sound is different with the ONE-X, I think you will hear a little more outside the headset noise, but so far, I would say the audio quality of the One-X seems clearer or maybe cleaner, but can be pretty subjective. They are comfortable and don't have the weight you would typically expect with DC. Tighter around the ear vs the A20's. That might bother some people, not me. I haven't had one of those 3 hour trips so I can't speak to the longer flight comfort. So far, I like them and will probably pack both the A20's and One-X to do more comparison. DC is a great brand and they have made a good step with One-X.
If your curious about my Bose ProFlight experience in a Meridian, I tried them for a couple of months and while the comfort is fantastic, I think they area really a jet headset. The lack of any volume control drives you crazy and the audio quality in a turboprop is lacking in my opinion.

Love it, but I'm being picky
Operationally it works excellent. Connects to my phone every time no drop calls, comfortable and quiet. The only issue I have is storing it. My old David Clark's I can wrap the cord around and will fit nicely into my flight bag. The One X doesn't wrap around you have to stuff it into your bag. I guess that's true for all the noise cancelling headsets. The memory foam feels great but if you don't have it folded in properly it will deform for the next time you use it., especially in cold weather. Cords could be a little longer.

What does DSP do ? My problem is not noise but fuzzy audio.
William A on Aug 2, 2016
Will this work with the David Clark K10 helmet?
Brett N on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately it will not fit directly into the helmet. That being said it is only the headset earcup shape that prevents this from happening. If you are handy I don't believe it would be very difficult to add enough material such that the One-X would fit into the helmet.

I have a One-X that I love, and I keep a H10-13X in my K10 helmet for flights I need the helmet.
Would you recommend this over the Zulu 2/Bose A20?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what you are looking for. The David Clark DC One-X uses the same electronics pkg as the David Clark DC Pro. I have around 8,500hrs of flight time and currently fly as captain on a Legacy 600. I came to the corporate side after 8yrs of flying at the regionals. Build quality and comfort are the top two things I look for. The noise canceling is excellent and the BQ/comfort is great. Youc an't go wrong.
Can it be ordered with a helicopter plug? Does anyone have any experience with the DC ones in a helicopter?
Bill J on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can be ordered with a U-174 helicopter plug. I have used my standard GA dual-plug version in helicopters with an adapter and I had no problems.
what is the weight of the DC one-X ?
Bonnie on Oct 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The weight is 12.3 ounces.
If you're listening to music through Bluetooth, if you get a radio transmission, does it automatically mute the music?
JBenz on Mar 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It defaults to the music muting with a radio or intercom transmission but you can easily choose the setting where the music DOES NOT mute for any transmission. Great headset! I would highly recommend it.
How much does it weigh?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 12.3 ounces, without the cord.
Does this set have passive protection as well as active. In other words if the headset has no power will your hearing be protected?
John B on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I sometimes forget to power up the unit but I still get passive reduction similar to my old DC H-10 headset.
Does it over the whole ear like Bose?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a full coverage headset that goes around the ear.
Without cellphone interface can you talk on your cellphone via blue tooth?
Ken C on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is what I use the bluetooth for. And the co pilot or passenger can't hear my conversation while I'm on bluetooth. I have to get off of the call to get back on the intercom.
Can two of these David Clark Headsets pair to one cell phone, at the same time? If playing music, could both headsets hear the same music?
James G on Jun 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Bluetooth on the phone is limited to one connection at a time.
Love DC headsets but I find that the H10-13.4 and H10-20 bump the top of the canopy / cabin ceiling in some of the smaller planes, like the DA-20 and Cherokee 140. Will I have the same problem with the DC One-X hitting the ceiling when it's on my big fat melon head, or is it substantially lower profile than these older models? Thanks.
mgm739RK on Feb 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This headset is similar to the H10-13.4 and H 10-20. You may always returne the headset within 30 days if it does not fit your needs.
Can this headset pair to multiple devices simultaneously such as an iPad and a phone? Thank you!
Mark S on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It can not.
Is it available in Airbus/5-pin XLR plug? I know converters are widely available, but using a direct XLR plug will enable it to use aircraft power instead of batteries. Or maybe a 6-pin/LEMO with LEMO-to-XLR is an alternative? Will the converter transfer the power?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This headset is available with a LEMO connection. Our product number 7182A.
Good morning,
Can this headset use for Cessna 172?
Yanster on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has the twin plugs.
I have tried a few headsets purchased the H10-13.4 due to it's ability to fit over my big head and ears. Are the ear cups the same size? Are they interchangeable with the 13.4?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These ear cups are different but still made to fit entire ear inside. Headband is highly adjustable, should fit anyone. I too went from H10-13.4 to these. I like these very much. I built a RV10 with that big IO-540 up front and decided I had to go for the active noise reduction. 13.4’s are now for the backseaters.
if you have 2 headsets, does each headset pair individually with a seperate cell phone?
A shopper on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, each headset would pair to a separate cell phone or tablet.
If you buy this headset with GA plugs, are there adapters or wiring kits to make this headset work with LEMO or XLR plugs for Airbus or modern Boeings?
Marcus N on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, We have adapters that convert from GA to LEMO and from GA to XLR
I am searching for a headset under a lb. such as 11 oz or so?
Patty B on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most of the DC headsets are around a pound. I do not have a specific weight for this headset.
Is this the same as the dc one x enc?
David C on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the enc stands for Electronic Noise Cancelling. It may also be referred to as Active Noise Reduction.
