Notable Comments:”They start feeling heavy and uncomfortable after about 1.5-2 hours and progressively get more uncomfortable to a point where it’s time to take them off. (Ear/side pressure and top pad).” “The fit feels secure without being tight or clamping. The ear seals (gel ) are very comfortable and seal well. The head pad is also fine I wear them for a maximum of 2 to 3 hours at a time.” “Clarity is functionally good ,they are just not as sweet as the ANR Zulus.” [The Lightspeed Zulu.2 headset costs $800.] “My David Clark 13.4s are about 20 to 25 years old and still look like they are brand new, they still have the original ear seals and head pad.”

Absolute Best Value
These were a gift from my Dad when I started my flight training twenty years ago. I've used other headsets (including in-ear Lightspeeds and Bose ANR). To me, ANR is nice to have, but if you're not used to it, you'll never miss it. The DC's have gel-filled ear cups and are some of the most comfortable headsets I've used. Audio quality is crystal-clear. I have to put in a word for DC's world-renowned customer service, too. The foam mic cover finally deteriorated after twenty years, and I couldn't find pricing on their website. I sent them an email asking for pricing, and a week or so later, two mic covers showed up in the mail, free of charge, with a note thanking me for being a loyal customer. My Dad has had similar experiences with headsets he's sent in to DC for repair.

The H10-30 is an excellent value for both seasoned aviators and pilots who are just earning their wings. Provides all the comfort and performance features that a David Clark headset is known for, at a very competitive price.
