Good news!

Stereo headphones are perfect for the music buff whose family doesn't share his enthusiasm. Traditionally, most stereophones shut the listener into a world of his own, oblivious to ringing phones and doorbells and crying babies. Not so with this unique headphone set.

Small sounds, in the immense silence, are hugely magnified: a branch shedding its soft load, the flutter of a bird, the snow-crunch of boots, the swish of skis. In the glare of winter sunshine-- or a cloudy day's weird white-out-- elk, hoofing snow to get at sprouts underneath, barely look up at your approach.
