Huntsman22, I got a hold of them and they said they aren't working on a behind the head set up at this time.

I have to tell you guys that I have been using these when I mow and edge the lawn, so I can listen to music through my phone and they work awesome. I also took a call on them a few days ago and the sound quality was great.

I've been using these quite a bit the last couple weeks and really like them. For shooting they work as expected, allowing me to easily hear other people talking while protecting my hearing when a shot is fired. I got a chance to test them in the wind last time I went shooting and thought they did a good job of filtering the wind noise even though it was still a factor.

I also have continued to use them every time I mow the lawn. It's nice to be able to listen to music or a podcast without cranking the volume.
