    New old headphones

    I treated myself this week to a second hand pair of SP3 Dynatron headphones.
    These were my first experience of hi-fi back in 1971 when my Dad acquired a Garrard record deck, a Rogers Ravensbrook amplifier and Dynatron headphones.

    I listened to them today and compared them to my modern Sennheisers. They were fine but clearly technology has come a long way. There is a clarity that doesnt come through with the old SP3s but I just wanted to relive the big heavy padded cans.

    They are immaculate and were a bargain at £40 but the seller was a heavy smoker and I haven't as yet managed to get the smell off, so any advice on that score would be appreciated.

    Get a sealable plastic bag large enough to enclose the headset, and add a couple of those fabric softener dryer sheets, and leave for several hours, or even overnight.

    Thanks, I had thought along those lines

    Ive wiped them several times with a lemon wipe and that doesn't touch the sides.

    He was a PROPER smoker, this fella

    A scrubbing with good old Bicarbonate of Soda seems to be the best answer to pretty much all cleaning problems.

    I'd not seen the thread before. Nor have I heard of the headphones, come to that. I tend toward either Sony or Sennhauser (obviously), but I'd put in a good word for Jowan's noise cancelling Bluetooth set if I could but remember the name of them. Damson XD, a small UK startup. Very comfortable, very effective wired or wireless and not wildly expensive. Given how shot my ears are, any over-ear headphone is good news but the noise-cancelling element when traveling is amazing.
