    Official Equinox Headphone Thread

    Ok Folks, I got my 800 on Monday and have done a little testing. I haven't Hunted a official hunt yet but I have played in the yard as well as put a little time in the test garden.

    My Initial thoughts on the Headphones are that they sound great and have zero static But I am a feller with decent sized ears and these headphones are small as far as the ear cup. I have a feeling these will be making hot spots on my ears on a full days hunt. They more or less your ear fits inside the cup vs fitting over or surrounding the ear like most. They fit snugly for me that's for sure. I have a feeling I will not be the only one who thinks they are just too small.

    Looking at the technology of the Equinox it looks like we may have Good options in terms of connectivity. Has anyone heard yet if any Bluetooth aptX low latency head phones will work?

    If you have heard of any that may work post up here, Now or in the future. My goal is to try a couple different sets out and see if anything else will work.

    Here are a few pictures comparing the new Equinox headphones compared to the Deteknix Deus headphones. I love the Deteknix as they don't squeeze my head and are very free around the ear.

    Ahhhh thanks for posting this. I almost changed my order to an 800 because I wanted the headphones, but after seeing them now, I don't.

    I need full coverage for comfort : D

    I'll save and wait for a pair of grey ghosts, or the waterproof equinox headphones if they are a bit larger.

    You bet Don't forget about the wireless module the 800 comes with though. you can run your headphones wirelessly I am pretty sure with that adapter. Reduce a 1/4" to 1/8". As well as the 5 frequencies. Both I am sure will be great machines though.

    Grey Ghost headphones are the most comfortable set of headphones that have ever adorned my gourd. I have had a set of the GG Original headphones for about 5 years now. They are most comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time without causing fatigue. They are quality made and will hold up. When mine finally crash, if I'm still around I'll most likely be placing an order for a new set of GG. Best of Luck to you with the new Equinox and for your search of headphones. Remember: once you go Grey Ghost, you'll realize they are Better than Most!

    Agree with devldog, I have Greyghost for a X-Terra, Safari, and a waterproof set for the AT. For land use I really don't have a problem with "corded" phones, and I'm thinking that with a adapter jack, using a set with the 800 IF possible.

    The headphones on my CTX only come off once a month to ensure the connection is clean then I reseal with dielectric grease.
