hi monte!
i use "pro stars" and have never had any issues with them!
they are made in china!..got 'em for around 70 bucks years ago.
i called whites and spoke with mr howard who explained that they were made in china, and they did this because the profit margin was low on the ones made in sweet homel and they are in the metal detector business, not the headphone business...sooo that's what i got from them, and make of that what you will!

(h.h.!)
j.t.

I make of it just as I read it. Steve Howard made the comment they are made in China due to a better profit margin, and that's what I also stated. They, like most detector manufacturers have a lot of things Made-in-China or some other foreign country, such as the nice detector finds pouch, recovery tools, Velcro arm cup strap, most of the circuitry's electronic components, and the list goes on.

But I remember when their former CEO showed me the TRX Pinpointer and Headphones before they were even being made. Just prototypes and they were still trying to decide between two housings for the TRX Pinpointer. He was proud to tell me the Pro Stars were going to be made in Sweet Home, but things are what they are.

You have a set that hasn't broken. My oldest son also has a set of Pro Star headphones that haven't broken .... but they were from an early manufacturing era. Another big headphone maker for the metal detecting industry also had similar breakage issues They got that part replaced and that eliminated a lot of headache for the future. Also, by getting rid of the defective part and not mixing up the inventory with bad headphones and good headphones. Instead, they simply got rid of the defective parts and then assembled them with the non-breakable replacement and continued making headphones but without issue.

I also know that I've used headphones for many decades for different applications, such as watching movies, listening to music, and when out detecting. I also know that I pamper all of my detecti9ng gear and I properly adjust the ear cups on the head-band before trying to place them on my head, but the cheap plastic that was used 'Snaps!' on one ear cup, but it has happened to me twice where both sides 'Snapped!'

I know that OregonGregg really loves the Pro Star headphones, and he, too, has had them 'Snap!' on him as well. So now he has bought several sets just to be prepared for the future.,
