David Clark has unveiled the new DC One-X ANR headset with "hybrid" electronic noise cancellation technology that the company says delivers "extraordinary" best-in-class active noise reduction performance.

We haven’t flown with the new headset yet so we can’t vouch for that claim, but the DC One-X is clearly targeting the market dominated by top over-the-ear ANR headsets from Bose and Lightspeed. David Clark’s “best-in-class” noise reduction claim will be interesting to put to a real-world test, which we plan to do soon.

The Bluetooth-capable DC One-X is shipping now from several retailers for a price of $895.
