It’s a Headset Thing

Sam Weigel gives reviews a headset that a lot of recreational and professional pilots use regularly. But is it right for you?

In this week’s installment of “V1 Rotate,” I give the David Clark One-X ANR headset an in-depth, long-term review based on 18 months of both professional and recreational usage. 

I run down the One-X’s list of features and rate its sound, microphone, noise cancellation, and even its build quality. You’ll also get my thoughts on how the One-X compares to several competing headsets. 

Prospective and current professional pilots looking for a good headset for both light piston aircraft and noisier turboprops and jets will be sure to find valuable insights.

Sam Weigel has been an airplane nut since an early age, and when he's not flying the Boeing 737 for work, he enjoys going low and slow in vintage taildraggers. He and his wife live west of Seattle, where they are building an aviation homestead on a private 2,400-foot grass airstrip.
