    picked my headphones up from post office today and i,m over the moon with them . Only Registered Users Can See Links.
    Approx £22 from gearbest ,they sound brill and feel very comfortable on my head.

    as can be seen the cable connects to a jack coming out of headphones and its my intention to add a v4 bluetooth reciever that measures 2"x1" and 11grams . and a small transmitter to machine and hey presto high quality wireless for under £40.
    will update how i get on when bluetooth comes in about a week ,but initial impression of these phones is they sound fantastic. missus has brought several different pairs recently upto £50 and she said they sound better than all hers .:Yahoo: IMG_20160314_171727888_HDR.jpg IMG_20160314_171531957.jpg IMG_20160314_171559825.jpg IMG_20160314_171451293_HDR.jpg

    As I see, these headphones are monitors and this means everybody will be listening to Nigel's Sorex Pro sounds on club digs :Music:, listen and get nervous on each non ferrous sound. A good way to troll them :Biggrin:

    must confess joey i like comfortable headphones . some sets are built to last like grey ghosts etc,etc . but i find them very tight on my fat head . they are like industrial ear defenders and usually tight and sweaty in summer .
    also the recognised quality headphones built for detecting are at least three times the price of these . start talking high sound quality wireless and your £80-£150 .
    so i just see these as fantastic sounding wired that can be converted very quickly and easily to wireless due to the stubby little lead that sticks out the phones ready to hook up a receiver unit.
    until i receive transmitter /receiver i cant be sure how good it will work ,but there are many tiny transmitter/receivers ,i will keep buying them till one works perfect .
    if it works out good first time brill, high quality wireless for £38 . seriously these headphones remind me of the sony set i brought 20 years back .they also had 50mm drivers and i loved them . i think i paid £50 at time in a half price sale .
    if they do work great wirelessly i will buy a spare set in the blink of a eye.

    Definitely let us know how the wireless setup goes. Bluetooth trans. and receivers setups are cheap now days as long as the amplifier in the receiver can drive the speakers you shouldn't have any issue.

    yes thats very likely ,but might not be a big issue even if the 10hrs quoted is cut to 3 hrs by big drivers . it has a usb charger port so i would just tape a 900mah AA size li-ion pack to the headset ,about a extra 50 grams but then we would be talking whole day .

    I think you had it close. It will probably push the speakers fine but maybe more current draw and shorter battery life. I'm not sure what the small earbud headphones impedance is or what your headphones are. Seems bluetooth receivers are used more for small earbud speakers. I only said anything to make you aware in case u end up buying more Bluetooth receivers. Maybe worth comparing some specification if you have issues with your setup. Maybe save some money. :)

    just unpacked my transmitter and reciever. quality looks&feels good .paired up with tv ,sounds ok . then paired up with sorex and they sound great . no noticable delay air testing on coins ,and no noticable difference in sound quality . still got missus in hospital so might be few days before i can conduct a real review ,but so far it looks like the three items make a great wireless setup for £40.
    been using the phones wired about 6 hours so far and love them ,real quality audio .

    also brought a led lightbulb at same time . says its 15watts but i doubt it .
    still its a rechargable one with its own plug in solar panel .i suspect the solar panel could be used to charge many devices .looks like same plug as my mobile phone takes . all for just £4 posted .
    seems to throw out about the same light as my laptop screen .
    as a prepper i will be ordering four more .

    also while checking youtube for a pairing video for trans/reciever i ended up getting this random video playing after it .Alll about the dangers of wireless and mobile phones on the brain .only watched few minutes but got impression its worth a watch when i get chance .

    i,m so sorry guys ,for some strange reason i thought all three links had been posted .
    reciever =Only Registered Users Can See Links. .(50mm x25mm)
    transmitter =Only Registered Users Can See Links.
    the transmitter is 46mm round x 12mm .not a issue if fixed with a bit of double sided tape to battery cover or side of arm cuff .
    there are loads of options available .v2.v3.v4 . i went for v4 because it sounded more upto date .maybe if you like using headphones wirelessly with your mobile phone you might check what bluetooth your phone supports before ordering . would imagine they all will work as long as you buy same bluetooth V for both items .
