I fly a C182K and fly with an older set of D/C H10-13X which I really like for the way the ear cups completely cover my ears, provide excellent noise cancelling and are comfortable. The new Pro-X2 would seem to be better suited for a quieter aircraft environment. There was just to much engine noise due to the way they only sit on the ear rather than cover themFebruary 5, 2020Purchased

Probably the most technologically advanced NC engineering to date, in a compact sturdy design. Only thing I would change, a storage bag of sturdier design.December 2, 2019Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoNice but I want to try others….This is a very nice headset but I want to take Sporty’s up on their offer and try another one.
There are two issues with the headset that are causing me to return it.
1. It falls off when I look down.
2. There is annoying “white noise” when it is on.
The headset falling forward, and then off, could possibly be fixed by glueing the ear pads. As it is now, the pads spin very easily.
The white noise isn’t too much of an issue in the airplane but I plan on using the headset in the crew lounge on those four hour sits. The static white noise is noticeable.November 24, 2019Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFor Cessna 172The noise reduction is a little better than an "over ear" passive headsets. And it takes a while to adjust the position for the best noise reduction. For comfort, I think it really depends on the shape of auricles. So I think the compact headset is the best for 121 operations. It is also decent for general aviation operations.November 3, 2019Durability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesDescent jobLove the foldable size, and the reason why I use it in the jet, as the Bose A20 is too bulky on the road.
The quality is not as good as the Bose of course. But I expected it, and it does a descent job. Even used it in a Bonanza, although I would prefer the Bose in that type of plane.October 28, 2019Purchased

i've used this dc pro x2 for just 10h on a piper arrow and that headset is awesome! tried to switch inflight to the old headset and i don't understand why i waited so long before decide to changeOctober 1, 2019Purchased

Very comfortable indeed. Highly recommended to all my mates already especially after trying the Bose ProFlight and Clarity Aloft Pro for a few months each but didn’t like them and chose the DC ProX2.September 1, 2019Purchased

6 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesReally a great choice for jet or turboprop operators.3rd Dave Clark headset I've owned, just ordered another Pro X for Learjet. Great for jets and even pretty good in turboprops, but in my opinion, not enough passive noise reduction for piston powered aircraft(I have only used the original Pro X ANR, will send review of 'X-2). Super comfortable for long trips because on on ear design and zero clamping pressure. The cords feel a bit cheaper than my older DC ANR, but Dave Clark stands behind their product, so I know any issues will be promptly repaired. Battery life good and auto shut off is great! Wish they had a simple on-off switch instead of button that you need to hold down.July 29, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLuxurious ComfortAircraft flown: Cessna 172
Noise: Once the the speaker canals are PROPERLY aligned with your ear canals, turn on ANR and I could clearly hear every call without any issues or having to make any concerted effort.
Comfort: I tried out the BOSE A20s, and could feel the spring on the crown of my head. These are so light, I lightly put them on, and immediately thought, "Well, these are going to fall off." except they didn't instead they stayed perfectly. Wore them for a 7 hour IFR XC, no messed up hair, no pinching, clamping effect, or hot spots.July 2, 2019Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 11 answersI’ve had the original DC Pro-X in the past. My only complaint was it seemed to move around on my head quite a bit. Does the new DC Pro-X2 seem to stay on your head better than the previous version? Thanks for any input.BEST ANSWER: The improvements to the design of the headset include a narrower hinge point on the now oblong green ear cups. In my experience this has resulted in a more stable feel on the head. Having owned the original DC Pro-X headset, I would recommend the upgrade. It's not a drastic difference, but it noticeably reduces the amount of time you spend adjusting and readjusting the fit on the head. I hope this helps!The ear cups spin which causes the headband to fall forward when I look down. the Pro-X's didn't do that. is there a way to secure the ear cups from spinning freely?BEST ANSWER: I never noticed they did spin. I just looked at mine and they do spin. I’ve found when I position the head band towards the rear of my head it stays out better. I also have tried different adjustments and found when the ear cups are lower on my ears it stays put better.
Depending on your fit it may differ but I’d suggest trying different adjustments to see what works best.Do the new ones have “ auto power on” when the avionics are powered up?BEST ANSWER: It does not have power on but does have auto off.What are the changes from the first version? Thanks!BEST ANSWER: The ear cup was elongated and the ANR was improved.Hello do you have in stock ? I want to buy one with Airbus plug. I am in USA at the moment until June 5 th.BEST ANSWER: Both of the XLR pug headset types are currently out of stockIs there a difference in the control module/ price between bluetooth and non-bluetooth models?BEST ANSWER: There is no difference in price between the Bluetooth and non-Bluetooth models. The control modules would be slightly different.
