Hi guys,
I am after some good headphones that sit behind my head rather that over it. The KOSS Headphones that came with my CTX kept sliding off my obviously pointy and small head even though the comfort and sound quality was awesome.
Thought the FX headphones look good and if anyones used them Particularly with a CTX. Or does anyone know any other alternatives.
Thanks in advance

Hi mate
They are not too bad to use, very light and the sound is pretty good. In the wind though gets a bit blowy but they actually fit to your head better than WS4's. Primarily I wear them on the beach so they are very usable in the wind still.

I have been through 3 pairs in about 2 years, I use them with my cscope mostly and did run them on the 5000. Cord is too long for 5000 and I just ended up in a tangle with the hundred other leads you run. LOL Weak point is the plug join, that's where all have failed so far. Set I am on now I re-enforced a bit with good ole duct tape been using for ages.

Inline volume control is handy as well.

Pretty good for the $30, the other alternatives I have tried have all been BigW or Kmart stuff. there are a few options there and about the same price too. Personally I don't like things in my ears so most of them were quite uncomfortable.

Hope that helps mate

I got some for summer work with my GPX4000 and X-terra 705 (need a converter from 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch jack), I have no problems with recommending them.
Being able to easily order new foam covers is a great bonus every couple of years.
Mine came in the same hard case as the wireless set for the Deus.
The connector is a 90 degree plug.

Anyone here like a good strong discussion comparing brands/detectors?
