Wraparound Headphones

The Jecklin Float electrostatic headphones. They were non-adjustable. So they either fit, or they didn't. But apparently the sound quality was pretty good.

I did buy a regular looking set of electrostatic headphones in about 1973. My ears were young and the difference between them and my Radio Shack special was astounding. So was the price difference!
The expensive electrostatic lasted about a year. I still have the Radio Shack ones and they are matching now my older hearing.
Besides, I have a fat head.

Janszen is a name I haven't seen in a long time. I do remember seeing a catalog around that time and wished I could afford a stereo speaker that looked the size of a garage door. They are still in business, and still making those electrostatic type speakers.
