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.

      (From the ad:)  APTx LL, 10 hour run-time.  Looks like you could pair 2 of these together for a build-your-own (Garrett) Z-link.  What am I missing?

      1st of all I have tried the factory reset and that hasn't helped. The headphones are fully charged. When I try to turn them on sometimes I get a continuous flashing red light. Now when I  am trying it I am getting red and blue lights flashing simultaneously. I get no sound from them except when I turn them off I hear them shut down.. 
      Not sure what to do I sure hate to send them back to Minelab

      I have an older set of wired Bose QuietComfort 15 noise-canceling travel headphones and stumbled onto a clever, low profile Bluetooth upgrade for them. I just bought the BTunes Wireless Bluetooth Adapter on Amazon for $59 a couple weeks ago. They sound GREAT, have a better than the advertised battery life of 10+ hours (I'm on 12 hours now), easy to charge and best of all they sync up with my Minelab Equinox 800 in AptX low latency mode!!!
      I got the Bluetooth upgrade specifically for air travel but I figured some of you may want to know about this.
      Highly recommended!
