    Last night I tried turning the headphones on first, and still ended up having to re-pair after waiting about 2 minutes for them to connect.

    Even aside from this problem, I am not thrilled with these headphones in general. What's with those 3 infinitesimally tiny LEDs? How can you hear the ascending & descending tones to know when they have turned on or off, when you don't have the phones on your head? Why such a teensy ON/OFF button that I can't use when they phones are on my head? And why on earth are the ear pads so small? They hurt!!

    (I'm also not thrilled about being tethered to the WM08 either though)

    You really should factory reset the phones and even the EQX if that is not too painful (i.e., if you don't have too many customizations set). This helped another user who's headphones were acting up after a time (they turned on and showed connected but the volume buttons wouldn't work). Sometimes the automatically adjusted settings in the bluetooth comms stack just get bollocksed up and you have to start from scratch to clear the stored settings and start from scratch. As far as BT alternatives, here are a couple of relatively inexpensive BT APTX LL headphones that are available:

    Though these are "on the ear" and may not be comfortable for you.

    The following are "over the ear" phones:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077SRNRQM..._t3_B01GGKNYOQ

    https://www.amazon.com/Avantree-Wire...oth+headphones

    For reference, these are the clones of the ML phones:

    I have only tried the Miccus phones and am just providing the others for info/research purposes only, I can't speak to compatibility and reliability.

    Thanks for all that digging into headphones, vferrari! I will try the full resets later once everything is charged up. I don't think I will be buying any more phones though. I already have two pair for the Deus and a pair of Gray Ghosts that I don't use. That probably doesn't sound like much to some of you guys, but its enough for me, at least without being able to try before buying.

    I don't think you need to go get those either but you were sounding really down on them so I thought I would put those options out there for you and perhaps others with EQX 600's might find something they can use.

    Sometimes it takes a few seconds to pair, but works better if the ear buds are on then turn on the nox.. I used them most of the weekend.. worked great..

    Yeah, but I'm not talking about a few seconds. I'm talking about nothing after a minute or two.

    One thing that I'm keeping an eye on... too early to say for sure, but it looks as though my On button on the phones may be getting stuck. I flick it with my thumbnail and I think it seems to be popping back out, but the movement is so small that Im not even sure that's what is happening. Still, if you're someone that is having the pairing issue, check that button.

    If that button is actually getting stuck then it will put your phones in pairing mode or even reset your phones and that could be the issue. But yeah, those buttons are not good (no tactile feedback because they don't move much) and the tiny LEDs are invisible in the sunlight.

    I'm beginning to believe that this is indeed the problem. The last three times out, I made sure the button was out after turning the phones on, then turned on the detector, and was connected in mere seconds.

    If that button is hosed, have ML send you a replacement pair under warranty.

    I think its just poor design and could happen to any set. The difference between the stuck position and the fully released position is hardly noticeable by eye. ML should have designed their own headsets. I think they would have done a better job (at least, I hope so). I suppose I should return them just to make them aware of the problem, though.

    not sure what all the hubbub is about...all headphones have a pair of speakers,one for each ear. do people really have that much dif∑fi∑cul∑ty placing headphones on...
    just rem its one per ear...you can't go wrong
    Reading a manual can make you look real smart
    Not reading a manual...can just make you look not so smart.
    Telling people you can't read on a forum....just makes you look stupid.

    Not all headphones are the same, nor do all HPs fit the same. Some have pezio speakers and no resonating chambers and others have real speakers with resonating chambers.
    Some HPs fit over entire ear others barely cover the ears.
    Some HPs have small head bands others have large, different HPs fit differently, not really that

    Highly recommend you follow TnMnts suggestion.
