Dear Thomas, I'm not aware of any good off-the-shelf MRI-compatible earphones. (There was a branch of PST that had a product weeks away from production for several years, but I think nothing came of it.) We arranged to have GEC Marconi in the U.K. make us a system similar to what they made for the Nottingham group (Alan Palmer, Deb Hall, et al.), but I don't know if they'll want to do that again. The Nottingham group have developed their own electrostatic headset - you can have a look at it on their web site <>. We are having a local company build us an electrostatic headset. You may be able to adapt a high-end electrostatic audio headset (e.g., Sennheiser, Koss) to your needs. - Mike Ravicz Mike Ravicz, Eaton-Peabody Lab., Mass.
