I had talked with Detector Pro on the issue of headphones for the Gold Monster 1000 and I said they would do well on sales if someone would come out with a good after market headphones. Well they thought about it and called me back informing me that they are answering the call to produce a high quality headphones for the Monster that will eliminate the external speaker sound from coming thru. These headphones are the same as the Gray Ghost headphones but were made specifically for the Gold Monster. They are the Gold Series and there will be a special headphones coming out for the Exuinox as well. The cord is a pigtail style with an 1/8" jack that shuts off the external speaker. The sound is sharp and crisp with no distortion. The pigtail cord is 6" longer than the Gray Ghost headphones and I assure you there will be no more kneeling on the cord as we all have had to deal with until we just use the Monster without headphones. I feel these headphones are very comfortable  and block out external noises very well and they have a volume control on the side as well. I have the proto type as I have been asked to field test these wonderful headphones by DetectorPro.I will let everyone know when they will be available for purchase. 20180524_210406.thumb.jpg.1209b2794508a9e70d241f4843ce35b6.jpg

Very nice, though other than marketing I don’t see a need for two models. Anything that works in the Monster should work on the Equinox and vice versa. Good news, thanks for posting.

If you already have good 1/4" headphones you can use this to use your existing headphones

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3-5mm-Male-To-6-35mm-Female-Headphone-MP3-CD-Stereo-Audio-Extension-Cable-30cm/252399663440?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

Which lets any 1/4" headphones work on the GM1000 and disables the internal speaker.

Welcome to the forum DanKT.  

I prefer the ones with a bit of a cord on them, so there isn't such a big bunch of plugs sticking out the back of the machine, but yes, your sort do work perfectly well on a Monster.

Thanks phrunt. For me and the spirit of the old-timers I'm trying to make do with what I got. Already have 4 detector Pro headphones. Just can't justify another one it's a little fix works good.

The jack for the nox will be slightly different.

Well, having both the Gold Monster and Equinox, I would not be interested in phones that work with one but not the other. The Equinox 600 and Gold Monster both come with the same set of wired headphones, so we know one set will work identically on both.

Now if the version for the Equinox is waterproof and uses the waterproof connection that’s another story.

      Am I doing something wrong? I cant get the volume control + or  -- buttons to work on the ML80 phones. The volume works fine on the detector.

      Finally found my fist Virginia picker with the GM 1000 on the private land that i have access too!  This is my first piece of detected gold from here.  Ive found lots of nuggets dredging the creek but nuggets have eluded my detecting efforts.  
      I found this one in a small feeder creek.  I have since detected most of the feeder and found nothing else.  I still have yet to find any pickers or nuggets outside the creek at this location which is frustrating to say the least.  I also run a GPX4800 outside the creek but no dice still.  Up to 12 gram nuggets found dredging in the creek but nothing outside of it.  One of these days lol.

      I was just wondering if there was any plans of aftermarket coils being produced for the Minelab GM1000? I can think of a couple reasons why they would be welcomed. The coils seem to be impact sensitive, and the coils do not have good edge sensitivity. Am also wondering if a concentric coil can be built to work on the gm1000? I tend to prefer concentric coils over dd's for vlf nugget detecting.
