Monte I have an extra pair of ProStars. They were the third replacement set for ones that broke so I stopped using them. Do you want them? Shoot me a PM where to mail them. Just a small token of thanks for the one trip I met you guys on and the knowledge transfer I got from you over the years.
I've turned down kind offers at times in the past, and later felt I might have offended someone, so ... I'll take you up on the offer. The Pro Stars are the best corded headphones I have used next to my favorite Killer B 'Hornet' or 'Wasp' models. If you're sure, and I do appreciate it, do so to Monte V.

I stick with Killer B Hornets and got a Killer B Stinger for Christmas. The Stinger is kind of tight now so I'm hoping they get more comfortable with some stretching. A lot of times I like hearing what's going on around me while detecting and I can hear the pinpointer better without having the remove one ear muff.
Years back I was gifted a set of 'Stingers'. One problem I have is my hearing impairment, and that was before an injury from a fall in June of 2010 making things worse. So not only didn't the audio 'balance' well in only one bad ear, but, as you mentioned. they hurt my head. Too loose and they'd flop around or fall off, and if snugged up they just hurt. I parted with them.

I have to remove an ear cup to hear my pinpointers, unless they transmit to the headphones like the XP Mi-6.

I recently got an Equinox with the wireless phones but I'm not crazy about those headphones. Mostly because they hurt. The pads are too small or something. I ordered the adapter cord for the 1/8 to 1/4 jack for the Equinox so I can use the Killers instead but will also try it with the wireless module.
Did your Equinox come with the ML-80's? Those are what come with the Vanquish 540 Pro Pack and I found them to be very comfortable and work quite well. No problems with them at all.
