Read the Description Carefully
I purchased this David Clark Pro A headset, because I needed a lightweight headset that does not squeeze my head. I saw an older video review on YouTube stating that this headset had been designed for use by "all" pilots. I was so excited that I ordered it before reading the entire description. Apparently, since they were first designed, the company has changed its position on them being made for "all" pilots, because now they are just for airline pilots.

My order came in and as soon as I took the headset out of the box it had tag on it that said something like, “Not for piston driven aircraft.” I did not even bother to take the tag off, or take the headset flying, because I was afraid that it could not be returned.

I also noticed that the headset did not have a standard two plug system, but it instead had a plug that I suppose is for an airliner. It will not work on a Cessna. I could not take a test flight with it even if I wanted to.

And even if I were an airline pilot, it would not have worked. I noticed that the headset is too small. I sat it down on top of my head to see how it felt. I noticed right away that the ear pads did not come down far enough to fully cover my ears – and I have a small head. I looked for a way to adjust it, and there are no adjustments for this headset. It also felt very flimsy.

Maybe someone else will have better luck, but I would not recommend this headset to anyone.
