After only 2.5 years of use, my DC 13.4 headset microphone just died. I still have the reciept and the box they came in and on the box it says that there is a 5 year warranty. Has anyone ever dealt with sending their headset in to DC? I am asking because I don't want to send my headset there and wait 5 months to get it back. Just wondering if I should try to get it fixed locally or send it in? Any comments or experiences?

Sent mine back to them a few weeks ago priority mail. Got it back in less than 1 week.

Just like chperplt said, UPS the headset back to them and they'll have it repaired and back to you before you know it.

I had a DC headset that was over 15 years old. I sent it in because the cord was starting to show the wire. They said I should get it refurbished. They replaced the speakers, volume control, microphone, all the wiring, just about everything except for the earcups and metal band. I got it back in less than two weeks for under $50. It's a great deal, just like new but far cheaper.

David Clark is tops when it comes to customer service. You pay a hefty premium for their headsets but they totally stand behind their product. They have also warrantied some absurd situations. They even had an ad in the mags a few years ago about a bush pilot in Alaska who lost his headset. It spent the winter outside encased in ice and he found it in the spring. Your problem is a rare example. I've had my 13.4s for 10 years and they still work great.
