Killer B II Headphones

George in USA - best
I have had my Killer B II headphones for one year and eight months. I have used them extensively and have been quite rough on them. I have a habit of removing them on each target so I can hear my pin pointer which adds to the wear on the headphones. I have had to have the cord replaced and that was done at no cost to me. I like the sounds that they produce. They fit nicely and noise reduction is great. I believe that they are well worth the price.

I Love Mine

Kevin The Mule in SW Ohio, USA - best
I have had my Wasp headphones for about two years and they get moderate use. I'm in Ohio, so I don't do much treking in the jungle, so I haven't experienced any issues with breakage or brush snags I've read others take issue with. Also, I called THR right after I got them to get some clarification on the limiter switch usage, and the folks were quite helpful. I give them a solid "A". Oh, and they're comfortable on my melon, thats a plus!

They Break!

The Rock in K.C area North Missouri - one star
What more can I say other than they break very easy.
While walking across a field on my way to hunt, the right side just broke off. No warning of an issue.
I take very good care of my things. My detector still looks brand new after months of hunting, and I did the same for the headset.
But I have had nothing but problems as the wires kept shorting out and I would get a loss of sound.
I bought another set of better headphones and have been using them for 4 months of heavy use and have not had any problems. Even the guys that have Koss do not have the problems as I had with this set of Wasp.
Ask around and see before you put out a chunck of money on this type as I think you will go with something else.

Don't Buy

Dave in usa - one star
Don't buy killer B's. I have had a major problem: chronic shorts on both ends of the cables. Оnly after repeated send-ins and a threat of me to post my disgust on all forums, did they do something about it.
Тhey sent me a 2nd pair free. Now the second pair is doing the same thing. I called them, and they basically said that I was S.O.L, and they felt they did their part in kindness.
Now I guess I should fulfill my original threat of posting on all forums about their quality or lack of it I should say.

Poor Warranty

Donald Kamplin in winnemucca,nevada - one star
I purchased a set of these on 9-15-2009, the left yoke broke after 3 weeks of use. I sent these headphones back for repair and had to include 7.95 for return shipping. 6 months later the yoke broke again. This time, when I called, they informed me the lifetime warranty only covers the electronics. I am stuck with a $100.00 pair of junk headphones. My brother bought the Grey Ghost headphones, and they are doing fine after 12 years.

Industrial Type Quality.

Chad Entringer in Green Bay, Wi (USA) - best
These stay put with great sound quality. Love the individual volume adjustment for each ear! My right ear is inferior to my left so I am able to tweak it to even stereo sounding noise! Notch volume adjustments! No flimsy felling/construction. The plug cord and rest of the components are of high quality.

Great Set

Ykw in NH,USA - best
Second best set of phones I own. I love the volume on these, with volume control for each side. They are light and comfortable and have a good range of tones. These would be great for someone with hearing problems, either in one ear or both. Killer Bee's and Grey Ghosts are #1 for any detectorist looking to hear the difference.
