i bought them from my friends dad, he was hard to part with them. he has an under house recording sound proofed studio, and used to play in the surfari's. sounds like angels singing, and the mids and lows are amazing, too. i was looking it up in your search, and there are none, and i figured i would start. he said they were a company that went out of business in the 80's. titanium drivers, and from what i can find online, which is VERY little, they have 20hz to 30Khz response.... they sound amazing.

yeah, that's what i found, i took some photo's of em on my table..... they are amazing. but i haven't a good background in "immaculate" headphones. i am uploading them to image shack to post shortly. apparently, they were a couple hundred in the 80s when they went out of business. i love them, they do really well with a wide array of sound. ill post a few photos when they are fully uploaded. thanks in advance.
edit: they are my avatar pic, too. uploading, and converting to 800x600 res, so people on dial-up don't suffer from my camera.

Would also like to know more about them.
Not very expensive, which means, easy to try! Assuming one can find them.
the worst part is im just starting out, paying bills and whatnot. target doesn't allow for me to have too much extra spending money...post #7 of 208/11/11 at 3:05ampost #8 of 208/11/11 at 3:14amThread Starter
it is two potentiometers, one for ea channel of audio, left and right. to vary volume on either side from 0-100 percent. they are the best sounding, most clear headphones i have personally tried, but i haven't tried most that you guys are raving about. i have spent a grand in audio for tweeters, mids and subs and a pioneer dvd deck, for my car. and i would rather listen to these. a guy i know that is really hard into music says my car has the best system he has heard under 5 grand. haha. because most people go " listen to the bass" my motto is "listen to the whole song" lolpost #9 of 208/11/11 at 3:16amThread Starterpost #10 of 208/11/11 at 4:12amThread Starterpost #11 of 208/11/11 at 4:15amThread Starterpost #12 of 208/15/11 at 10:41amThread Starterpost #13 of 208/15/11 at 3:43pm
Look at the icons when you post/reply. The 8th column of icons, there is a picture frame, followed by a film reel and a paper clip. Select the picture frame. Then click the second tab for a hosted image for a place such as image shack. It will have a box for URL. Paste the URL of your image off image shack or photobucket or where ever you want. Ok it. It will embed.

Since the 1960s I have owned a variety of headphones and listened to many I did not own. Although all were enjoyable I didn't have a favorite. Then in 1997 I saw an advertisement from Sound City (had moved from NYC to NJ) selling the Sterling Te-400 for $9.95 plus $5 for s&h. I had not heard headphones featuring Titanium elements but I knew that some audio speaker systems such as JBLs used Titanium tweeters so Titanium had to be a good thing. I sent for a pair and when I heard them I was sold! These were the best and most natural sounding headphones I had ever heard. When I saw another ad, again at a bottom price, I sent for a second pair. I still have them. But I'm down to one working pair 'cause they both have developed shorts in the wire.
But, first, I removed the earpads' stuffing which made them a bit stiff and replaced the stuffing with cotton balls. A little improvement but still not 100% comfortable. Comfort came when I replaced the pads with Sennheiser-type soft pads from Radio Shack. I had to transplant one headphone's cord to the other 'cause of the short near the ear pieces, too close to fix. I may eventually remove the original wires inside the earpieces and replace them with similar volume on the cord ones.
Not many find the headphones as good as we do and I'm glad I don't have golden ears so that I can appreciate the full sound of these Sterling Te-400s.
