The full size leatherette ear seals provide maximum comfort for long flights. Over the ear design envelopes the ears for enhanced ANR performance while reducing heat buildup. 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.

DC repeat customer
Certainly a substantial improvement over my old passive headset. Since I got 25 years of excellent service from my DC H20-10 passive headset DC got my business again when I finally updated to noise canceling. I’m using the DC One-X in PC12 single turboprops. The clarity of incoming audio is excellent and my transmissions are notably clearer. The passive ability of the DC One-X is so good that sometimes it takes a few minutes to realize I forgot to turn on ANC. Some audiophiles may debate comparisons of perfection among ANC products. I’m not persnickety enough to go there but I’m very pleased to have the additional noise reduction while still hearing the frequencies I need to clue me in if engine power changes a little or airspeed changes a lot.
The clever folding is very helpful for saving space in cockpit and in flight bag.
I have had some grief with the Bluetooth but that is a problem with any combo of devices I own so I didn’t subtract a star from my DC One-X overall rating.

Great headset, but aggravates Tinnitus
Really like this headset. Shipped quickly, easy to set up, and works great. Impressed with the comfort, tone quality, and really liked the Bluetooth pairing.

Unfortunately, the ANR is aggravating my Tinnitus. I don’t notice it at all when the headset is on, but suffer with worse Tinnitus for a day or two after using the headset. So, as much as I like the headset, I am returning it and will stay with a PNR headset with Bluetooth adapter.

Quietist headsets I've ever had. Tried side-by-side with Zulu 3. These were quieter. Plenty comfortable. With NR turned off, still decent. Almost as good as regular old headsets.

Overkill for airline use
5 star headset for GA flying. Overkill and too much clamping pressure for international airline pilot flying. (A330, B767, B757)
I’ve flown with the DC Pro X for the last 4 years and love it with the exception of my ears being pinched while wearing sunglasses. I tried to upgrade to the DC One X, but after 3 hours I had a tension headache from the clamping force. The headset framework is the same on both, but the spring tension is different. I’m going back to my trusty DC Pro X. Light and no clamping pressure.

So good I bought two!
As a DPE, I need a headset that is rugged enough to be installed in several airplanes a day to give checkrides without
having the plugs come apart, etc...as an airplane owner, comfort is king and the DC does well there, also. My airplane partner has another brand (rhymes with hose) and I much prefer
the One-X. Sound, comfort and noise attenuation all seem better on my DC and I saved over $200. My wife liked it so much more than the Bos..., um, I mean other headsets in the plane that we bought one for her,

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!

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.

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.
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.
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.
How many Decibels are being reduced with this headset?
Jerrod R on Oct 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David Clark does not list a reduction number. Typically a noise-canceling headset will reduce by 40-50 Db.
Is a LEMO plug the same as an XLR plug? Can this headset be powered by the aircraft, with no need for batteries if using an XLR plug? Thanks.
A shopper on Oct 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The LEMO is not the same as the XLR plug. Both can be powered by the aircraft.
Does the headset have a direct power link converter you can utilize using the aircraft power plugs rather than the batteries?
Chris on Sep 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It does not.
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.
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.
