I sure am and I am very happy with it! Will be writing up a full review soon. However, I use it with detectors that have external speakers already so have never tried plugging an external speaker into the Z-Lynk. Tell you what though, I will give it a try just to see if it can power an external speaker well enough without the use of an amp/booster. I do not have a GPX however if that was your thought so will use the ATX as the next closest thing.

Great thank you. I want the pro sonic for the speaker but I like the z link for the battery life. And  the z link has a direct plug for my atx so that would be nice. I been trying to decide between the two. The I seen the deteknix pro that has wireless head phones!

The problem with wireless headphone systems where the receiver is built into the headphone is you better like the headphone. I prefer a receiver box I can plug my own headphones into.

Yes I agree with u there. I had a blue tooth wireless set up the aptx low latency I had the option of using the wireless head phones or use the transmitter and receiver. I loved being completely wireless but if it was real noisey I got out my better quality headphones and used the transmitter. But most of the time i went wireless, just so nice and they were light weight!

According to garret the z link was designed strictly for headphone use so some type of booster would probably be required. Thanks tho

Wondering if anyone has tried the  z-lynk with an external speaker or speaker/booster set up at all yet?

      Has anyone tried the Ausdom AH3 Apt-x low latency head phones.  I just got them for my Equinox 600 and they paired right up with low latency.  I then took them to a fairground that I have partially searched.  My coin count was way down while using them.  I will check them in my coin garden tomorrow.  Just wondering if anyone else has tried them and their opinion.

      Finally, they have arrived, now I can put the snorkel back on.....
      Extra long cable, 41" of straight cable from connector allowing you to Velcro under the arm and still have plenty of cable to the headphones. No cable having to dangle in front of your face! Loudness is good, preliminary garage tests show constant mid 70's decibels on a target with full volume on the machine settings. Fit is typical Koss yellows and can be improved with gel ear pads which will be on order shortly.

      So now I've got a Gpx 4500 my phobia of headphones is really getting to me, I hate the things.  
      I want to hook up an external speaker to it, I have tried an external speaker I had laying around and unfortunately the amp on the battery doesn't kick in using it so I assume its to do with it having a stereo plug on it.  
      Kiwijw mentioned he thinks you need a mono plug for the amp to kick in, if this is the case I'll just cut the end off and add a mono plug but I wanted to be sure before doing this that's what kicks the amp in.
      I've also ordered what seems to be the popular speaker for the 4500

       
      However it comes with a 3.5mm mono plug, so I'd need to change that to a 6.5mm plug (1/4")
      The problem I see is they're being advertised for GPX detectors looking like this

      So they've put a stereo plug on that one, and advertising it for GPX 4500's
      Would that not mean the amp won't kick in and you'd need a booster? 
      Does anyone know for certain what makes the batteries amp kick in? 
      Even JP sells his one with the stereo plug, I'm puzzled

      On one of the earlier posts someone mentioned that they were using The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT wireless  APTX Low Latency in ear headset (Ear Buds) and he said that they were excellent with the Equinox.
      I followed his advice and bought a set and I am now waiting for delivery of them, does any one use this type of APTX Low Latency Ear Buds and if so how are you finding them.  I am almost completely deaf and have to use my hearing aids under the cupped headphones and as a result my ears tend to become sweated up and I am not sure if all of this dampness will be detrimental to my hearing aids and it is now becoming really hot here in the UK so went with the idea of using the Sennheiser CX 6.00 BT wireless Low Latency ear bud phones, I have also bought the Avantree Audition Pro Aptx Low Latencey wireless headphones and I have used them several times over the past 4 weeks and I am finding them much lighter and with better ear scope to allow me to keep my hearing aids in and with plenty of free space to prevent my hearing aids squealing and whistling, my Minelab ML80 wireless headphones do not have the same loose cup freedom fitting and tend to squeeze on my hearing aids and set them off whistling which is most annoying.
      Any feedback will be appreciated.
      Good Hunting

      I have a set of Apple AirPods that I can’t get to pair to the Equinox. Has anyone been able to try this successfully?

      Really curious to know how these Hungarian waterproof headphones are going for underwater use so far because a couple people do have them.
      loud underwater?
      comfortable? 
      Other notes?
      I’m just so keen to hunt in the water and still no proper release date for the minelab phones!
      thank you 😊
