    For those that own the Trifield meter, would you recommend it?

    It's fun to play around and you can definitely find out what is doing what in your house, but that's it. So yes I recommend it unless you look at the price of other meters and think "hmm all things considered, this is cheaper than a tire cap on my Lamborghini and I still have all 4 caps"

    Suchzord, do you know why the warranty is so modest?

    Just the walls. There is fiberglass insulation above but I don't think that's relative in my case. Might be if there are emitters above you.

    Such, your readings match those of Dan? And did you find anything unexpected?

    My chickens have the opposite problem only earbuds will work for my ladies. They prefer the classics for laying and heavy metal for foraging.

    I use headphones when exercising. Can't really give that up. Does anyone know if the wireless ones are allot worse then wired headphones when using wifi? Or is it all the same because your using the phone/wifi anyway?

    Has anyone tested Ultrasone headphones with their meter? Curious about how effective their shielding is.

    I actually used to have a pair of ultrasone pro 900's several years ago. They had a metal plate in front of the driver with small holes for the s-logic. They claimed to reduce emissions by up to 98%. My biggest gripe was that the sound could be changed if you slid the headphones around or put them on backwards. They cost nearly 500 dollars but damn they sounded good. I've been using speakers for a while but I've been thinking about a pair of headphones when playing games with my friends because they always complain about sound picking up from my speakers through the mic. All the emf stuff has been really off putting though. The air tubes sound interesting but I wonder how that affects sound quality. I actually totally forgot about the shielding on ultrasones. I'll have to look into them again.

    Really glad to hear that you liked their sound quality. I recently tried a pair of the tube earphones and was disappointed. So I think I will try to get some shielded ultrasones.

    I have the GQ-390 and tested my ear buds. Some interesting things:
    • It would stick to around 4 V/m when volume was at 20-30%.
    • At 100% volume it would be around 60 V/m
    I now listen to things on low volume.

    I'm going to invest in air tube headphones.

    this is a sane perspective & thinking that goes with everything in life. Before electromagnetism or worrying about eating fats with too many double bonds humans worried about other stuff on the danger list that we don't worry about today like being eaten alive if we took the path through the jungle instead of the safer but longer path around it or something like that. I can totally agree as to living by eliminating everything dangerous then it's probably easier to just suicide.

    What about sewing a cloth "cage" completely around the headphones and some of the cord, using one or two layers of some kind of EMF blocking cloth such as swiss shield? Would that work to cut the EMF dosage to the head?

    You could try this Official Site of Stillpoints - ERS (EMI/RFI Suppression) Material. It doesn't require grounding, weighs less than metal shielding, and is probably fairly acoustically transparent.
