You mention the Garrett headphones -- specifically the ClearSound model mating well with the MDT in terms of good audio. Those are on-ear type and a lot of detectorists prefer over-ear. Have you tried their MS-2 model, which is only $10 more? I wonder if they use the same speakers or if Garrett just buys various 3rd party headphones and puts their logo on them, in which case probably not.
I have some MS-2's and for the price ($30-$35 including shipping in USA) they are quite good, IMO. I still prefer Sunray Pro Golds (standard version and Minelab compatible version) because for one thing they fit tighter and thus block out ambient noise better. On the downside they cost about $100 more.
My question is not a substitute for the WM08 , what I would like to do its match it with a non ML Transmitter, is anything available?
Wifes 2300 did not come with Bluetooth Headphones like the Nox or a better, the Z's WM12 speaker with Headphone jack. I have set up an ebay Bluetooth Transmitter on the 2300 and a ebay Bluetooth receiver connected to the dealer supplied amplifier carried in her back pack to drive a speaker on her shoulder. The Transmitter and Receiver are the Bluetooth V2.1 + EDR which I understand is faster with less latency that the Bluetooth V4 or V5 but use more power than the V4 or V5 versions, so am not sure whether a charge on these small units will last a day.
So am wondering if anybody has come across a transmitter than will drive the WMO8 so can use it on the 2300 ( ie with a longer detecting use)
My Transmitter and receiver is similar to the item below
I've just received my Simplex+ 2.77 (coming from a Teknetics T2).
I connected my wired headphones and immediately noticed that volume is very poor.
At L1 level I can't hear anything; at L2 a little bit more... and so on... To have a decent volume I have to rise to max (H4), just to operate in a quite environment.
Keep in mind that:
I use a jack adapter (6.3 to 3.5)
Headphone are some Philips wired model (nothing special)
They have no volume control
All cables are well plugged in
Simplex speaker plays loud as expected
I tried with other headphones (no brand) but no joy
Same headphones play loud with my old Teknetics
Simplex battery is near full
Any help will be appreciated.
Currently using an SP01 and matching twin Speakers, volume on the Z is 8 volume on Sp01 around 7.5 if not using the Sp01 Volume on the Z is 11, with these settings and my hearing am not sure am getting the benefit of the Sp01, so as above would appreciate comments on twin WM12's ( Speakers are high on the Z Harness along with the WM12, the SP01 in the Z Harness backpack)
Will look at setting up the SP01 and the Twin Speakers on Margaret's 2300 with a Transmitter/Receiver driving the Sp01.
