This would appear to be the key factor for anyone shopping for these headphones. I see steveg got a set and now has them for sale because he only got the aptX version, not the aptX Low Latency set. So anyone looking for the BT80 version to replace the Minelab ML80 needs to be sure it’s the low latency version.

Yep.  I bought the aptX non-LL ones because I got a good deal on them, and hadn't found a set of the LL ones in stock yet.  A few days later, I found the LL ones in stock, so I opted for them.  I have heard some folks in some places say that regular aptX seems to be fast enough for no perceivable delay, but I can't verify, as I have never tried them.

No where near as good sound as Gray Ghosts . It was the same with the Koss. I do beaches nearly all the time and need very clear tones , Koss and the new ones have muffled sounds .

OK, gotcha Nuke em.

I plan to run my Pro Golds through the WM08 at some point, just to compare, but honestly I like these Bluetooth phones well enough that I haven't bothered to do so yet.

Back when I first started running Explorers, I went for a year or so with the Koss phones, and I thought they were just fine.  But people kept insisting I should upgrade, so I tried Pro Golds, and I REALLY like them (and have used them ever since).  And yes, once I got used to them, it did make the Koss phones seem like they were a bit "muffled," not as "clear."  So I get what you are saying...

Avantree Audition Pro (the "Pro" is the LL version, important). $69. Headset and Earcups are large and comfortable, at least for me.

Thanks, I just ordered a pair.

I sold my Minelab wireless phones after using them once. No where near as crisp and sharp as running my Killer B's thru the WM08. They sounded muffled or hollow to me, but, that's just my opionion.

Miccus or Avantree?  I'm getting along fine with the Avantree Audition Pro--just came back from using them again. I also use the Sennheiser CX 6.00 earbuds when I don't feel like over the ear headphones. They also work well for me.

I used the Avantree for the first time today.  It took a bit of adjusting after I got them connected.  I was hoping I could use the 800 at less than full volume (25) and use the power of the headphones.  It seems I have to go no lower then 23 on the 800 and try to max out the headphones.  When I did this is sometimes seemed distorted?  My hunt was complicated by few targets.  One target I did find came in at 37-39 and I could tell it was larger.  When I dug it in the salt water it was an iPhone 8.

It reminded me that I can hear signals with the 800 but I don't get a sense of mass.  There is a broad area of detecting the target but not a 'grab you' type of signal that this same iPhone would have made with the 3030.

Maybe I should try my WM08 module while I still have wired headphones to see if I can tell any difference.  I personally love the wireless ability and convenience, but IF the sound is better in such a way that it would aid you in getting more keepers, deeper targets, or digging less trash, then maybe there's something to it.  To be honest though, I'd just assume plug the wired headphones into the detector then mess with a wireless box, that really doesn't give you a wireless solution.

      I have the pleasure of sporting the worst cold I have ever had. I should be doing battlefield metal detecting, but for the past 5 days I am just enjoying this cold.😡 So, not feeling like doing any real work or going anywhere, I decided since my beach hunts are over until fall, I would gather up and count and post all my finds for the whole season…. A season wrap up, if you will. Since I couldn’t muster up the enthusiasm to do everything in one post I figured I would at least post the good stuff. So here it is – the Gold and Silver finds from last Labor Day thru this Memorial Day. I managed 36 beach trips, not sure how many hours but probably about 250 hours of detecting. The breakdown goes like this: Gold total – 36 pcs, at an average of 1 pc per visit. Silver total (coins and other) – 207 pcs, at an average of 5.75pcs per hunt. The breakdown for silver is: 146 coins consisting of 6 Half Dollars, 27 Quarters, 98 dimes, 15 War Nickels. The other items (rings, chains, earrings, pendants, odd broken pieces etc.… - amounted to 61 pcs. Coming later “someday” will be the clad count, and a breakdown of the junk items to show the ratio of good to bad that comes with the territory. It was a great season for me and I look forward to shifting gears and doing the battlefield hunting and maybe some cellar hole hunting if I get a chance. And since I have neglected my other hobbies, maybe doing some of those until Labor Day.  Most of the gold was found because of the Equinox, probably 75-80% of it. Most of the silver was found with the GPX (at depth) probably 90% of it. Not a great comparison since I have found most of that gold in 8 visits and the silver was found with about 28 visits and I was specifically looking for deep silver, so I did not use the Equinox for that, mainly due to the fact that it was busy finding gold  Seriously, I was too inexperienced to get that kind of depth out of the Equinox, as most of that silver was in the 14" deep range, basically sitting on a clay layer with the sand above it containing small wisps of very fine black sand.  But that combination worked well for me and I'll probably stick with it for a while.

      I will be going out into the real world detecting this morning, going to a freshwater beach....not and old beach but busy on the weekends. I have seen other detectors out there but nothing too fancy.
      We will see how the Nox does...I know lots of bottle caps.

      Any one know if the ctx coils interchange with the equinox beside the mounting on the shaft?

      I have the Nox 600 and love it. But is there any way to keep tones from Park 2 which I like when switching to Park 1, Field 1 or 2, or Beach 1 or 2 ?

      With my previous detectors, the last few hunts here were anything but productive yielding no more than 2 to 3 non-ferrous targets.  Despite a knee high Rye cover crop that I was not expecting, I was able to make a few finds from this heavily worked old home site. It was a quick hunt of only and hour or so due to the cover (I'll be back) but the Nox and I were able to come up with 7 non-ferrous including a 1895 IH penny.   The button came up first and only 20' into the field from where I always park.  This entire area leading into where the old home sat in the field has been gridded with every detector I have had in the last 12 years.  Toward the end of the hunt I head off to the side a bit where numerous IH pennys were found in the past and the Nox did not disappoint.  With a full walk around signal bouncing from 17 to as high as 21 depending on angle of approach and centered, out one popped from only 2-3" deep.  The Racer 2 did well in this spot and all those finds were shallow as well.

      The 800 handled the iron here exceedingly well. Field 2 Sensitivity 20-21, Auto GB, recovery 5-7 depending on the iron and IB 0-1.
