Has anyone seen any reports on the new DC X11 ENC headsets - see below.


Weight looks reasonable at a bit over 12 ozs.


Price is $US, not Skippy.


See http://www.davidclark.com/X11/index.htmlfor details on features.

Looks good but that was also the case with the early lightspeeds ( made in China and gave heaps of problems) - need to wait and see how they perform after being in use for a while.


Generally theseitems should be considered:


Battery life ?


Weight of the battery pack - can damage headset cords over a period of time


Auto shutoff ?- easy to forget to switch off unit


Panel Mount version of the X11


How much for the panel mount version ? - usually very expensive


Can you switch headset between panel mount version and battery pack if wanting to use the headset in other aircraft ?

Hi All


Well i now have my DC X11 Headset. Don't ask me how much they cost because it was my birthday present from my lovely Wife and she won't tell me.


But i can tell you what i think of them. GREAT HEADSET...! Light, comfortable and do the job very well. My phone even works with them. The battery pack is very light unlike some others. My MIL has a bose which i have used on occasion and the DC is even more comfortable in my opinion. Time will tell but so far so good.
