  1. Hi from Downunder, I was wondering if any 800 users out there had used non Minelab brand bluetooth earphones or headphones yet ? ...and if so, what type they used. I am looking to purchase bluetooth earbuds as headphones get very hot for me (its Summer here) I am hoping to find out if I need to buy standard Apt-X or if it needs to be Apt-X Low Latency Low Latency will offer the same no lag as the Minelab WM module or the headphones - Standard Apt-X may have too much lag or delay Apt-X LL cost $170 versus standard Apt-X or Apt-X HD $50 (these prices are in Australia) I know I can use the WM module with my choice of earbuds as this is what I have been doing but I hope to go truly wireless soon. Thanks in advance and happy hunting
  2. What brand headphones would you recommend for Minelab detectors? Thanks bill
  3. What do you think of headphone amplifiers? I stumbled across these on ebay https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NUGGET-BOOSTER-Amplifier-suits-SD-GP-series-Minelab-Gold-Metal-Detectors/302622416001?hash=item4675b39c81:g:GoEAAOSw~QRaOL48 Although for $20 I can get a similar thing from China on Aliiexpress. My hearing isn't ideal, I blame it on my teenage years and my cars sound system as a youngster! If it makes those hard to hear signals at the edge of being able to even detect worthwhile perhaps I do need one, has anyone used one? do they seem worthwhile? Thanks
  4. My favourite headphones for years has been SunRay Gold Pros . Without mentioning brand names I've tried several high profile sets , but to my hearing the SunRays always pick up whisper sound and slight variations in the threshold better than the others I've bought and tried . My question is , I would like to hear feedback on the "Bushmasters" built for the Relic Hunters site . To me they could be just about be describing the SunRays (imo) Thanks and Cheers goldrat
  5. I've never had Bluetooth headphones or earbuds that lasted as long on a charge As stated or advertised. Steve, I know you have used them so maybe you can say how long they last before shutting off?
  6. just what are these headphones? are they only Minelab headphones? how will they compare to the wireless XP Deus wireless ones? i'm familiar with the wireless module but have no idea what headphones i might want to use IF i do use the WM8.
  7. Steelphase Hits The USA

    Well, I'm the 1st detectorist in the USA to receive a steelPhase audio enhancement system. Hopefully the weather holds enough to give it a whirl here soon. I'm not here to knock any other similar products out there. I'm just trying to make use of a new product and technology to help give me a improvement in beaten up flogged patches. Merry Christmas everyone! 🎅🎄🦌⛏️
  8. I know we had a recent thread on this but I wanted to say I had two broken pairs of UR 30s and because of that other thread, I sent them in to Koss for repair. I got them back about two weeks later. I am very happy with the repaired and refurbished headphones, they are just like new. Some may think other types of headphones are better, but its very good to have spares as they do break sometimes. Broken headphones are not good for much, but these refurbished ones will make sure I always have a spare pair or two for a long time to come.
  9. There are new wireless headphones by minelab coming soon that will work with the Gold Monster 1000. I was told they will be in the ballpark of $125.
  10. My apologies if this has been covered. I did some searches and did not find answers to the question. I have a GPZ with headphones (Sun Ray Pros) and would like to use these on my new Gold Monster 1000. I have tried the typical stereo conversion cable and it still did not work. By not work, I mean the sound stays on speaker. It did not work for Sun Rays or Black Widows headphones. But of course, the original GM1000 headphones *do* work. But we all know how cheesy those are. So far, the only solution I have heard involves opening up the headphones and making permanent modifications. Has anyone else been successful at this? (see my attempted conversion cable below..)
  11. What waterproof headphones can you use with the Equinox in the sea ? Why did they not fit a CTX 3030 headphone socket so we could use the phones we already have ? Is there an Equinox to CTX 3030 headphone adaptor available ?
  12. https://newatlas.com/nura-headphones-review/52214/?utm_source=Gizmag+Subscribers&utm_campaign=5eaf25216b-UA-2235360-4&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_65b67362bd-5eaf25216b-92422477 Maybe of interest to those of us that are fairly deaf to part of the normal sound spectrum. I just love tech and how it can help us in so many different ways.
  13. My sp01 Audio Enhancer arrived today in the post. I've been using a B&Z booster and have been happy when using it with the twin speakers setup. When using the headphones though I felt the quality of the sound wasn't quite good enough. Overall though the B&Z has been great. When I heard about the Steel phase I thought the extra audio features might make the signal clearer when used with headphones so I bought one. As always Nenad is a pleasure to buy from. Always polite, punctual and lets you know whats happening after you've purchased and waiting for delivery. I've included a few pictures of the Steelphase next to the B&Z just for size comparison. The other units you see in the picture are my wireless transmit/receive units. Hopefully, they work as well as the did when connected to the B&Z. All going well ill get to try it out next week.
  14. Koss Headphones

    Over the years I have bought several new and used Minelabs. They have all come with Koss UR30 headphones. Many of these have broken and I have replaced them sometimes from Minelab and sometimes directly from Koss. Today I sent off 2 pairs to Koss. They charge $9 for each pair and they will send you new replacements. You have to send them your old headphones. Minelab had sent me a pair in the past just because I told them one pair was not working. They didn't want to have the old ones. You can call Koss at 800-872-5677 and their website is https://www.koss.com/ Don't detect this season without your headphones working properly. Mitchel
  15. Wireless earbuds are out on the market now and I am wondering is it possible to replace the wm12 with a Bluetooth or wifi set of earbuds? Is there a spec on the wm12 wireless conection someplace? This would help out a lot with line of site issue I have sometimes when I'm using headphones with the wm12.
  16. Dear Valued Members, Please read the below info carefully regarding the 2.4 GHz Wireless Headphones compatible with Racer 2/ Gold Racer and Impact: WE SHIPPED ALL DEALER BACKORDERS AS OF TODAY. The headphones have been updated and finalized with hardware and software changes. We have also added a battery level indicator tone when the headphones are turned on. FOR RACER 2 AND GOLD RACER - The headphones will ship with a dongle and MAKRO LOGO on them. FOR IMPACT – They will ship with NOKTA LOGO and without the dongle. In other words, there is only 1 headphone and they will work on all 3 machines – without a dongle on the Impact and with the dongle on the Racer 2s and Gold Racers. We apologize that they were delayed so long and thank you for your patience! Dilek
  17. Steve,I have been reading on several forums that people report that wireless headphones,because of "cross talk" will decrease the detection depth. What is your input on this? Thanks.
  18. Garrett Z-Lynk

    I finally tried out the Z-Lynk, wireless detector to headphones system I bought from Chris over at Arizona Outback. I was working very steep ground in Northern California and am truly happy about the purchase. I'm a better prospector using this system. Being able to set the detector aside and concentrate on digging the target is much more appealing, even marginal targets. I was using the Z-Lynk with Calrad headphones and a Gold Bug 2. I didn't find anything but large and small square nails and spikes, but was in the right area. Try it, you'll like it, Mike
  19. The last time I went detecting I got a skunk. During that time of listening to my 7000/14 I noticed that my signals were 'breaking' in a way that made me not understand the ground I was swinging on. I found myself tuning and re-tuning my detector seeking a steady threshold. I was going over my wireless connections as well as my conservative sensitivity settings in an effort to hear the signals better. The breaking can come from several sources. The detector, the headphones/wireless and my ears. I'm in the process of checking my headphones and hearing by using this website. http://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php I've found several of my old headphones have problems. I'm surprised I hear the range of sounds on the tests. I get all the mid-range stuff I need, I think. I have a pair of Gray Ghosts that are built like a tank but don't work properly. Does anyone know if they have a lifetime warranty? Some of my Koss UR-30s have stopped working. I know I can get an exchange on those with some cash. Mitchel
  20. Using the GPX with wired headphones is a pain in the neck for me. So I was looking for a wireless option. When I saw the Pro Sonic system I went ahead and ordered it. What a relief, so much more freedome without the cable. Especially the heavy GPX with all it's cables and the harness makes it so much more pleasant not to have another cable. I can place the detector away from the target area while digging and don't have to take my headphones off. No more cable getting snagged at the handle, no more dangeling wire. Another benefit, on a hot day, I just clip the receiver to the shoulder strap of the Pro Swing 45 and use the speaker instead of headphones. About a possible delay in audio responds, so far I have not noticed any delay. Audio is spot on as the coil passes over the target. Another nice to have feature especially on a GPX is the volume adjustment on the receiver module. So in conclusion, I can say, I am very pleased with the Pro Sonic. I paid $269 for the system. Is it worth the money when you compare it to the Garrett or Deteknix systems? Maybe not. I think the only benefit is the built in speaker of the ML system. Other than that, if you are on a budget or you only use headphones, go ahead and buy the Garrett or Deteknix and safe more than half. I think ML needs to come down with the price to make it more attractive. So why did I buy it? Ohh well I guess I am a ML fan boy 😆 FschJg
  21. So? What are y'alls thoughts on headphones for nugget hunting? Will a person do just as well with a less expensive set of Treasure Wise or Garrett Master Sound phones, or do the more expensive models like the Detector Pro Nugget Busters and Grey Ghosts really help a lot? What is your choice of headphones?
  22. JW - I've been running WM12/Booster/Headphones for the last few months. (recently adding JP's booster) I like this and have tested this against the setup without the booster and did not notice much difference. I enjoy using the booster more as a volume control as adjusting headphone volume is a pain.
  23. Do you just use a jack converter to make it a normal earbud size? Is the output about right? I much prefer earbuds so i can choose my headgear without worring about the headset going over the top.
