    Hi all. I am after some better headphones, I have the Whites Starlights which are ok but there's not enough coiled flexi cable with them. I need something that coils up to a decent length when swinging but has a bit more flex to help when you put the machine on the ground. Any suggestions?

    These are very good with plenty of cable. Too much really. But it comes with a clip that excess cable can be wrapped around. Very good sound on the sorex... or the blue back phones from the xp.

    I have some Sennheisers at home, so if they sound good on the Sorex I may give them a try. I can't recall the model as I am at work presently but will post them later.

    Well here they are, just read a review where they came top for ones you can get for under £20 so I guess before I spend any more money I should give these a whirl. HD 201

    My Sennheisers worked really well. I just need to get the cable length right, but they performed very nicely.

    Is your cable really long? Mine is and need to get it shortened.

    Hi Rew. I decided on the length I wanted and folded the cable the whole length I liked several times and then taped it down. So I have a thicker cable overlapped a few times at a length I like, I will test this when I get the 13x10 Mars coil, hopefully this week.

    I use cheap whites headphones that came with my first machine(my backup)
    They are OK but tend to get tight after afew hours and the poxy spring type cord gets a little stretched after a while :(
    But other than that they are pretty good if you don't mind a little ear ache :(

    I find using a heatgun from afew inches away on the cord makes it recoil tighter but its a slow process :(

    But for me it does the job!,as much as a pair of wireless ones would be useful I just don't like the idea of any lag esp when the battery's start going downhill :(

    Too short!! :)

    I've been using my cord rock climbing and as a popup washing line ;)
    It gets rather dangly :)
    I can get the kids to swing in the field while I sit in the car with the heating on and just shout "stop" :) hehe

    Obviously they must be different Whites headphones then. Mine are Starlights, a very basic cheap headset.

    These are the kind of headphones that do not work with the Signum.

    You can buy quarter inch jack adapter to take the smaller headphone jacks.
