Nenad, It depends on the size of your brain (head) and how big it is. I use 3 different brands with my SD-2200 and Fisher GB-2. The Fisher Deluxe(by Bilsom), has 300 Ohm, volume control, and will save your ear from large targets with their blast limiting capabilities. They will seal so good and tight that they will give you a headache after a few hrs use. They are GREAT when the wind really gets bad. They seal out all other noise. Not recommended for lg. heads/glasses for extended hrs. Jimmy Sierr MaxiPhone II's are what I use most of the time. They seal better than most, but not as tight as the Fisher Deluxe. 150 Ohm, Signal Limiter, like on the Fishers' and individual volume control. I also like the 90 degree plug and lifetime warranty. I feel that these are pretty close to the Grey Ghost. The Maxiphone II fits most of my needs at all places. Koss TD-81 and KW Pro are great phones for comfort and you forget that they are on your head. But if there is ANY noise around you(wind,water,trees,cars,kids,festy wives,partners,etc) you can not hear as well. I like to use them early in the morning or at night when the winds are calm and no distractions. They will all find small sub grain size nuggets (if you have the machine to find that small of gold) with no problem. My suggestion to you is to try on every top brand you can and get a real feel for them. Remember that you will be wearing them for long periods of time. Some of them will sweat and hold moisture longer than others. Look at the plugs, cords, ear cups and see if they look heavy built for durability. You will probably end up with at least 2 different pair. At least you realize that they are VERY IMPORTANT and you never want to skimp when it comes to headphones. Good Luck Sir, I can hear you.
