Over-The-Ear Headphones

Steve Jacobson
 

Hi,

I used to have some Sony over-the-ear headphones that did not have a headband but had long hooks that went over the top of each ear to hold them in place. These were flat headphones that covered the ear but did not extend into the ear. The headphones in question were discontinued several years ago, but I wondered if anyone on this list has found something similar that one might be able to buy today.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hi Steve.

I used to have a lovely set of headphones as you described. They had a hard plastic band that ran behind my head from ear to ear. I'd love another set as I can also where my Scotland cap.

I always wanted to know what they were called, so perhaps I'll look at the - pardon the spelling - Zenhieser site for "over the head headphones".

If you find a nice pair, could you please advise me of them please.

Very best wishes.

Andy Logue.

Andy,

The headphones I am looking for do not have a band at all. They depend on hooks that go over the top of each ear. The reason I liked that aspect is that they are a good deal more portable, no folding or hinges to break. However, I will let you know if I find anything like that. I think I've seen some with a band that goes across the back of the neck, though. They are usually described as sports headphones as I recall.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hi Steve.

Sports Headphones eh? I can understand that because they were very light and very strong and the band up from your colour acted like a sort of spring, pressing the earpads gently onto your ears plus they had the hook like features that would make them very safe for Jogging or even running.

Very best wishes.

Andy.
