Dropped the headphones in salt water ;(
Has anyone taken these apart ?
Want to try to clean , also I assume [ always dangerous ] that this is not covered under warrantee ?
I've been detecting for awhile now and have in the last couple of years started to use headphones, I always like to hear things around me. So my Question is who makes a quality single muff headphone ???? Or can you macgyver one, The headset can be designed for metal detecting or for audio use, I don't care, I Just want a good quality headphone. Any help would be much appreciated (cost is not an issue) durability is. Hopefully this is not a dead horse. I'm new to the site so I apologize if this has been discussed before.
I will be taking the Simplex swimming this summer, and looked into some underwater headphones. N/M makes UW phones for the Kruzer and Anfibio,
and they will also work on the Simplex. On some of the forums some of the owners of the N/M UW phones mentioned they are not loud enough.
I ran into the same issue with the nox phones from Minelab. Too quiet for my 60 yr old ears. I ended up getting some LS Pelso phones and they had nice volume.
But I sold them along with the nox last year. I checked with kellyco who is a distributor for Pelso, and they did not know if Pelso made the UW phones for
The Simplex, Kruzer and Anfibio. I went on Ebay. and sure enough there was one set for the Simplex that the manufacturer in Hungary had listed.
Cost $94 with one week shipping. Well they arrived today. I plugged them into the Simplex, turned it on, still had the volume in the machine cranked up to 4, swept a quarter past the coil, and my head almost exploded. 🤢!! I turned the volume down in the Simplex to 1, and the volume is just right for me now.
If you need a louder set of UW phones, check out the Pelso brand. A nice snug fit, good quality as well. HH & Swimming.
Using Wi Stream module is helping me vs Bluetooth wireless headphones.
Like to hear some other folks reports using Wi Stream with Nox in difficult sites.
Just ordered these:
and paired with one of these portable chargers (for example)::
am wondering if it will work prospecting in the US Southwest desert. (If not it won't be the first time I've wasted $10, even this month.) I'll report back when they arrive, but given it's Christmas rush for shippers it may not be until after Christmas.
Here's a link to a Google Search which shows several places to buy the above speakers. And just one choice of the USB charger/power-pack of many on the market.
