I recently purchased a set of hearing aids.  They are fantastic but they don't have bluetooth capability and have limited sound quality.  I would love to own a set of Technics headphones to be able to use on flights, music streaming and WhatsApp calls.  They would make a huge difference in my life.






I too have hearing issues.  Went to a specialist and was quoted between $3,000-11.000.  Ouch.  I did some research and ended up spending just $250, (and they're sometimes cheaper), on hearing assistive ear buds.  


Samsung Galaxy Pro Buds:




could be a good backup for you.  They have a function called 'Ambient sound' which is to some extent configurable and it really helps me anyway.

I currently have Jaybird run earbuds, they are really unreliable and frustrating when working. If I won a set of technics I'd be using them to listen to music while working from home. Thanks Geekzone and Technics.

I am just using a crappy earphone that came with my phone, and I use it for listening to music, watching movies and conference calls.

Littlest Miss MDF has discovered the joy of audiobooks and was essentially living in an old pair of Phillips bluetooth on ears. Some overexuberance sadly ended their long and distinguished career and they were retired to the headphone graveyard. Which is quite populous at the moment.

First, thank you for the email about such great opportunity! Normally I won't bother but taking it was posted on my BD, I found myself obligated to share my modest headphones I use daily! 💜💜 I am using HyperX Stinger core. Mainly gaming and watching YouTube.

Currently I am in hunt for my 1st Audiophile headphones and was looking into different ones in $500 range.

Thanks again and really appreciate being here!

I currently have a set of Sennheiser HD569 that I use for general listening on youtube etc.


I also have a set of Sennheiser HD 350BT bluetooth headphones that I use for Zoom meetings.


Finally I have a set of Roland RH-200 Monitor Headphones that I use for monitoring when recording.

Currently I'm using a pair of Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2's.  I just googled and see they have rebranded as Poly! So, probably in need of an upgrade.


I use these with my phone, just for listening to music while commuting to and from work. Although I struggle to remember the last time I commuted. August 2021? Hmm.

I have Airpods Max for watching movies, but my son "borrows" them often, and Airpods 2 for music when I'm on my treadmill.


I would like some over ear Technics headphones for my music listening on my treadmill and my audio system in the living room, as I don't like Airpods 2, which slip out of my ears even with the wee covers on them.


The Technics EAH-A800's will do nicely, thank you 😁

My office audio is a pair of over ear "Bluedio" from Alixepress. They are OK, with good audio but the pads are flaking and the head strap feels a little dodgy. While on the move I use some Mifo ear buds that like to fall out when ever they feel like it, audio is average, good for voice, disappointing for music. Connection s pretty good with both of these units.


I listen to audio books mostly and sometimes spotify and often radio via streaming as we have lousy FM reception where I live.


It would be great to grab a pair of brand name Technics headphones to listen to music and block out the neigbours enthusiastic lawn mowing as I work from home.

Currently only have some Sennheiser headphones that have been attacked by the cat so only one ear piece works.


They are wired headphones and using them on an older iPad Mini (since my new ipad doesnt have the 3.5mm jack) to watch Netflix and YouTube.

Sennheiser HD 600 Used for critical mixing and evaluation of Music I am working on. At the last stage is is good to have regular consumer headphones to see how the work done translates. My day to day workhorses are  KZ ZSN Pro in ear monitors with a cable or using the KZ AZ09 Wireless Upgrade kit. Oh and I use these Vintage NAD speakers as set of near field monitors too.

Good luck to everybody who enters...

"If you have headphones, what do you have now and do you use them for?"

I have some Sennheiser headphones. I wear them all day most days and they aren't the most comfortable but they get the job done. I listen to music and take lots of calls on them.

I have several:


* Sennheiser HD300 - replacement for my HD201s that finally broke - not entirely happy with them, but my laptop only has BT4 and has sync issues with YouTube


* Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 for Teams/Zoom calls - need a USB headset because the audio jack on my laptop is too noisy


* SkullCandy Dime True Wireless earbuds - used with my phone when out and about. Having tried BT earbuds with wires and having all of them fail, finally bit the bullet to get these and have been quite impressed with them.
