Default Padded Headphones with Sat Antenna

Anyone aware of development on a nice set of padded headphones with a satellite antenna on top? I'd like to buy a new pair of headphones but if I can get a set that will work with and without a satellite receiver that would be best. Most regular headphones have the band at the top equal in width to the satellite antenna. I would think this would be an easy development to make.

So far I haven't heard of any development of padded satellite headphones.

Cool

I haven't heard of anything yet. But, I agree with you that some company out there should look into creating a premium Stiletto headset. I'd be one of the first to buy it. The headset they send with it is uncomfortable and bulky to travel with.

I'd like to see one with padded earpads, and it would be great of the antenna were detachable and were able to be used as just an antenna. This would allow you to use the Stiletto with an FM Transmitter when traveling in another car, without the need for the docking station. I tried this while I was waiting for my dock, by placing the headset in my sunroof and it worked fairly well.

I'm sure they would sell one pair of comfy headphone for every Stiletto they sell...

I can wear them about a half hour (roughly my train ride) and then I'm done.

The antenna headphones included with the stiletto look as if they were rushed on to the market, like they had the stiletto ready but not the headphones and slapped together a design in about a day. I bought my stiletto on wednesday and I'm in awe of how well designed this thing is, looks seamless. My only gripe is that the scroll wheel could have been made a little more rugged, and for the money I think the back should be metal like an i-pod.

The Antenna headphones are much more comfortabe with the black foam around the parts that go in your ears but still, even with that we aren't exaclty talking major comfort.

About 30 mintues of them is all I can stand too. Glad my wi-fi covers most of my yards so I can just use the earbuds. They aren't the best things either for comfort either but they are certaily better than the sat. head phones.

Painphones. . . I like that. I still say that they were designed by Joseph Mengele.

Default headphones / painphones

They are just weird shaped to me. I've got to have them tight to my head or they fall off. (Or it could just be my weird shaped head.) I'd like a different option too. I think it will come in time.

I tried them out today while raking leaves in the yard. I normally use the wi-fi mode when doing yardwork but today I wanted to listen to a football game that was on a channel not offered online. I had trouble keeping the things on my head when bending up and down to stuff leaves in bags. If I was just standing and raking I was OK. Reception-wise they did fine, I even got three bars a couple of times. They did hurt my ears, too, and are very poorly shaped to fit a human head.

Noshooz is exactly right. These things are poorly conceived. Will someone please come up with a more normal pair?

I bring up the SMB to SSMB connector again so I can glue the dot micro on top of these antennas

would be better for me if the antenna could be hinged so it could be adjusted. I can pick up repeater signal but only when they hang at the back of my head.

While heavier, they may be more comfortable.
