Easy connection and high quality audio. This is the second cable I've purchased for another headset. Both cables have been excellent.

Avionics stuff that works!
I'm currently bouncing between instructing in R22's and R44's and training is C172's, using a Lightspeed Zulu 2 headset. The adapter has worked well and has not had any adverse affects on the ANR while flying the Cessna's.

H10-26 Users Need This for GA
If you own the H10-26 headsets from David Clark you will need this adapter for use in GA fixed wing aircraft. As many forums state "you will need one that converts the impedence" to be able to use these.... Let me fix that rumor right here. For the H10-26 headsets from David Clark, you DO NOT need an impedance change, and this adapter right here is the best way to get you able to use them in GA fixed wing.

Exactly as described.
Based on other reviews it seems this either works well or doesn't at all. In my case; Bose Aviation X helicopter to Ga, 300C to C172. It works perfectly and for the small investment makes my larger headset investment so much more versatile. Only used once so far so I can't attest to the durability but for the price any reasonable usage from the item saving me from the purchase of a second headset is money well spent.

Does not work with General Aviation
This plug will not work with Bose, David Clark, Flightcomm or Clarisonic. I've tried them all. No voice or listening capability. Used another cable a buddy gave me and it worked. Has no markings on it which I'm trying to find another one. They should put which headsets this cable will work with. Have to return and search for a cable that works. SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE This was an impedance issue. The military headsets, even though they use the same looking plug, are different than the GA equivalent. This adapter works with GA headsets (high impedance). If you have a military headset and want to use it in a GA helicopter, you'll need this adapter: http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/impedance-adaptors-u174-to-general-aviation.html

Pros: Will work with most make and models. Cons: Does not work with my David Clark H10-76 Military/Helicopter Headsets due to Microphone impedance issues specific to this model. David Clark Company has an adapter made for this model which addressed the microphone impedance issues. Fast delivery, good price.

Will this work for a Bose A20 Helicopter U174 type connection headset?
David S on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, I ordered one of these adapters and I could hear, but could not talk. I spoke with Bose today and they said you need a low to high impedance adapter for the mic to work.
Will this work with a David Clark H10-13H headset?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My passengers use them with the same David Clark headsets, as well as with a Lightspeed Zulu. I haven't had any complaints so far, but it's only been about a month.
Will this work with the Bose X (AHX-32-02) headset?
Charles F on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should work with the AHX-32-02
