The high performance and comfort found only in David Clark Company headsets, at a very competitive price. The David Clark H10-30 Comes with 5' cord and Fixed Wing General Aviation M642/5-1 (PJ068) and M642/4-1 (PJ055) Plug. Certified Noise Reduction Rating (NRR): 24 dB.
As a certified flight instructor I carry two pairs of headsets with me, as I have students that don’t own headsets. The acquisition of this pair represents number six in my collection. I have two in my Pitts Special and two in my Citabria. David Clark’s are bulletproof, I recommend them to everyone.
I am very satisfied with the H10-30,the one I purchased has the M-7 mic
I bought these to use in an Aero-Trek 240, they were reasonably priced and work great!!
We have this in a Stearman and they work great !!
I purchased this headset in the early 1980s. During college and the military aviation years, I kept them on a shelf in storage. After 12 moves and a 20+ year flying career, I purchased my own small plane. So, naturally, I break out the 30-year old David Clark 10-30s, plug them into the jack on my new 1946 tail-dragger, and they work like the day they came out of the box. Enough said....
I prefer the H10-30 over the H10-13.4 simply because the mike stays where you position it. You can also adjust the friction on the arm so when pulling Gs the mike stays in position. I bought a brand new 13.4 and its now for sale since recently receiving my H10-30.
Overall, an excellent headset. Good noise attenuation. Unfortunately, it is not delivered with a muff, hence 4 stars.
Maybe it is the temperature here (29 to 33C) but the plastic molding around the plugs and the Y junction started breaking down after three years, they have now crumbled to nothing. They were stored at home in a closet not in the airplane. Since I am so far away it would have cost more than they were worth to ship them for the warranty. When all the plastic finally fell off I wrapped the wires in insulating tape then a layer of speed tape (to avoid the sticky) and they have been working ok since. Not recommended if you are anywhere hot.
