Which Headphones? Can't decide
« on: March 06, 2017, 07:37 »
Hey all,
Trying to decide on a good new set of headphones.
Have heard the sun ray gold were good, but cant seem to find them for sale in aus.
There are numerous headphones advertised all around the $220 mark.
Black widow
Grey Ghost
SS300
Nugget Buster
Sun Ray Gold
Any suggestions on which to get?

Have a browse at Phase Tech website first then ask Nenad (the ownner) his recommendation, couldn't get a more honest bloke, they are in SA......cheers Colin.

Hi Colin,
Thanks for that.
I have emailed him, but he as you would expect only recommended a product that he sold.
I have no problems with that at all, but was just curious as to what the broader community though which is why i posted here also.

Sun Ray Gold I believe are made by Killer B, Killer B "Wasp" Headphones have the exact same spec. but different decals ...... work and sound real nice and have all the features.
Sun Ray Gold used to be available from Reeds Prospectin but seem to have been deleted and now only available from over there.
Grey Ghosts and Nugget buster both have 150 ohm speakers and 2 coil cables included  "NDT" but Nugget Buster do not have an audio limiter whereas the Grey Ghost have an inbuilt one.
Black Widow have all the features and are the next step up from SR Gold/Killer B Wasp but they are larger and slightly heavier, they keep a lot of noises out which can be good if
in a place with lots of traffic noise but not so good if in the bush where we like to hear whats going on around us.

I've had a pair of Sun Ray Gold for years, they happen to suit my need with respect to headphones.

No worries neo, I was just throwing one into the mix, unless you know some one they are a hard product to 'try' before you buy, the above post nails it pretty good, good luck with your purchase.............cheers Colin.

...never used anything other than Grey Ghost...have adapted them for use with the 3030....volume adjustment on the headphones is the "bees knees"...
