i work at GAP, and last season, in one of the visual posters, they had a pair of headphones. when i saw it, i thought to myself OMG I MUST HAVE IT.

so now, i have it (its a LOT bigger than it looked in the store).

anyways, they're pretty oldschool, anybody recognize these cans?

YES! I saw a similar model from the same company a few weeks ago on ebay. The exact same weird springy thing for the height adjust on the headband. I can't recall the make and model number, but the pics I have on my computer (they looked that cool so I saved 'em) say "Swinger Superex".

Good luck googlin' them. I can't find much.

There you go. It isn't much, but I can almost guarantee you they are from the same company. Obviously the headband and colors are a little different, but look closely at the shape of the cups -- especially where they connect to the metal height adjusters in the front-on pic. I hope this helps you in your search. I wanted these bad, but the price went over my OITC threshold for 70's headphones. -- And Senn HD201s probably sound better, anyway.

from the original post:

"so now, i have it (its a LOT bigger than it looked in the store)."

He has them already, he wasn't looking for help. He just posted the thread as a challenge...

I thought he was referring to the poster when he said that?

yeah.. I just assumed he was talkin' about the poster, too. I have a big soft spot for vintage headphones. Even though they don't sound so great IMO.
