i hope to get out this weekend with it hooked to my sdc so well see how it does by itself and with the treasure screamer plugged in.

Rob, the Pro Sonic already has 3 watts of amplification built into it; adding the screamer on top of it would be overkill. But it would be interesting to hear what it sounds like...if the external speaker survives😀

I was able to take this out a week ago and got a few hours in on it with my sdc2300.  although I didn't find any gold it was really nice not getting tangled up on the bushes.  as far as the volume goes it is plenty loud with the head phones but when I would unplug them to let my friend here the target, the speaker was way to low.  I plugged in my amp and external speaker and it was much better.  I couldn't notice any delay at all with the unit although I would get some kind of interference every once in a while as if the unit was loosing connection.  I tried wiggling the wires and other things but could not figure out what was doing it.  I plugged it in my friends x-terra 705 for a few minutes and didn't seem to have any interference.  I hope to get out with it some more soon to see if it was the area I was in or its my detector not playing nice with it.

      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.

      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

      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.

      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,

      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.

      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.

      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 😆
