Choices !

Post by ianexplorer » Sat May 03, 2014 5:28 pm

Afternoon All.

Reluctantly celebrated my 40th yesterday ( officially old now )

Lucky enough to get a few quid from family and thought I would treat myself to a new pair of headphones for the etrac,

Thing of either Gray Ghost, Predator or Jolly Roger headphones.

Does anyone have any of the above and could you let me know your thoughts on them


Much appreciated ::g

Easy....Chefphones! If you run in conductive..CP3TT's. Nice and comfy, super tones, long curly lead and lifetime warranty.

you won't be disappointed

I use the Gray Ghosts and find them very good with multi tones, also they can be turned right down to no sound at all, unlike the Sun Ray Pro's which didn't. Although the Sun Rays did have separate volume controls for each ear. I have used another set, but I can't remember who's make they were, but the housings are Bilsom Leightning L2f. I found these didn't have the clarity of the Gray Ghosts.

Thanks Guys appreciate your info..

I hadnt even heard of the Chefphones so just had a little look at those on the web and they look really good..

Cant go wrong if they have a lifetime warranty..

I do use the etrac in conductive with Multitones so that sounds perfect..

Nice one.. ::g

General consensus seems that way. Previously used the KOSS UR headphones which i didnt think were bad..
