    Killer B Stinger "Optima" Headphones

    Just wanted to ask anyones opinion on the Killer Bee Optima Headphones? I know they are a single ear cup headphone, but this is what I may want. I like to be able to hear what is going on around me so I do not want earphones that drown out all sound. I search in areas occasionally that are pretty isolated and I don't need anyone walking up on me without me knowing it. Call me paranoid, but I don't live in the greatest area. Does anyone know if they work well or if the quality is any good? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Killer Bee makes a quality headset. The older sets are known for bein' able to take a lot of abuse, but they were heavy. The Stingers are one of the few single-phone units that retains a full 150 ohm impedance. The single phone has a volume control.

    I have never heard anyone complain about KB headphones with the exception of the weight. I have used them, but I prefer my RATS. Unfortunately, RATS are no longer made. I would put KB products in the same performance category as Grey Ghost and Black Widows. They are, IMHO, a bit pricey, but worth the $$$.

    Hope this is helpful. Da FoX

    If you want just one ear hearing, take a look at the DetectorPro Rattlers.

    Somehow i figured you would find a way to get that Columbian half into your posts.

    That is one nice find!!
