    Looking for a new pair of headphones

    I don't know if this is the section of the forum for this, but I am looking for a new pair of headphones. The ones I currently use are Treasure Wise, and they have worked out well for me for the past few years, but the sound balance has gotten messed up, I think because I detected too many times in the rain and they aren't water proof, also the cord has developed a crack in the plastic coating. I am looking for a new pair because I don't want my current headphones to crap out on me while I'm in the field.

    My detector takes a 1/4" headphone jack. I am looking for something on the less-expensive side. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I looked at a pair of Gray Ghost headphones with a 1/4 inch jack, they were a bit pricey, but as I understand, they are well made. Would the Gray Ghost headphones be worth the money?

    Grey Ghost headphones are fantastic, I have multiple pairs. I also have other brands that are also very good.

    I've used the Grey Ghost. The are an excellent phone set and I would consider them in the medium weight class.

    On a budget, try Koss QZ-99 headphones, ~$40 -47 on eBay.

    But I love my SunRay Gold Headphones.

    I’ve used about every brand out there. I like the Killer Bs and Sun Ray Gold HPs, but much head is wide and they are a little tight and I hurt after a few hours. I thoroughly like the Detector Pro brand (Gray Ghosts, Nugget Busters, Black Widow). I don’t think you can go wrong with the treasure wise but I haven’t extensively used them. I have a set of Vanco headphones which are cheap but I’ve not used them so I cannot attest to their quality. I would also suggest that you look at purchasing a set of used headphones. I’ve bought many used ones and haven’t made a bad purchase. Right now I’m using a set of Gray Ghost NDTs which I picked up from a dealer for $90 and they are good quality, more than a standard set of Gray Ghosts. May look at getting an older set of Garretts or Koss UR30s although on the Koss headphones the build quality is weak but the sound is decent.
