Headsets

Hey everyone!

I'm looking to purchase a headset (am/fm) for use at the tracks on racedays.

Can anyone recommend a good set? I'm not looking to break the bank (over $100) but would like good reception and clarity.

Thanks!

Re: Headsets

My only thought on this would be to suggest a digital set.
Dial types will go off station if you rub your shoulder
or anything against them.

Re: Headsets

How many races are you going to attend?
If not many...why not rent a scanner for the day or weekend? You would be able to listen to the radio broadcast, drivers, NASCAR officials, etc. rather than just the radio broadcast with a headset. Definitely interesting and fun....

Re: Headsets

My Ipod does radio stations. You have the option of having the MP3 that way.
Not how fast you get from Point "A" to Point "B" it is how much fun you have getting there

Re: Headsets

Whatever you do, you want an earmuff type headset. Using a ear bud type is OK, but you would have to increase the volume considerably just to hear anything as it is extremely noisy (of course) when the cars are running on the track.

Re: Headsets

I got the Uniden scanner that was about $80.00. You can program the frequencies but not the driver number so you have to have your list to know which driver you are listening to. I think mine was broken when I got it because it never worked right. Now I rent the ones at the track all weekend for $30 and I am SO happy that I can just punch in the car number. SUPER easy. You can listen to MRN/PRN too.

I also took my head set carefully apart and added more sound cushioning foam.

I wish I had gotten the scanner that was more expensive but easier to use.
Here kitty kitty.. come get you some of this!!
