Still not clear what you need.  Jack to jack makes no sense.  What size is the plug on the headphones you want to use (big or small) and what size is the jack on the detector you are using (big or small).  From what I can make out you need an adapter that can accommodate a small headphone plug and that can plug into a large headphone jack on the detector, correct?

Better yet, if you have brand/and or model numbers for the headphones and detector you are using that would be ideal because some manufacturers like Whites and Minelab have special wiring considerations to make things work right. 

Finally, note that it will likely cost an individual more in postage to send one to you than it would cost to just buy one online with free shipping or at a local Walmart.  So if I were you, I would at least spring for shipping for whoever volunteers their spare part.  Just a thought.

Ahh 1/4" to small, should be some in a Walmart or if there is a Bestbuy or any place that sells audio stuff.

If your hooking small foam pad type headphones to your detector you may not like the sound, they are usually weak and cords too short. For me that is what I ran into when I tried some on my Tesoro.

You should have headphones with the coil cord so you have flexibility when you set it down to dig and not have them dangling around when swinging. Just my thoughts.

So you are looking for something like this, to plug into a detector with a 1/4” jack so that you can use 1/8” headphones? What detector model do you have? Believe it or not some are stereo and some are mono, so it makes a difference what adapter you use and what headphones. I think when in doubt a stereo to mono adapter usually works.

      Hi All,
      I am a newbie and purchased a Garrett AT Max. I am having trouble pairing the MS-3 Z-Lynk Headphones to the AT Max. Am I missing something? Manual says push the 2 buttons with headphones on. Did this like 50 times.

      Just got a set of these shipped in 3 days from Hungary.  Perfect impedance match for the N/M detectors--incredible sound.  Very clean and sharp --brings my accuracy up a lot.  They are so loud they need to be run at 8.  I worked with the manufaturer to improve his strain relief system (see the Heyco)--very nice set of phones for these machines.

      Looking for some affordable recommendations for water proof headphones. Mainly want them for the days when it is raining out.

      On occasion, when connecting my Equinox to wireless headphones (either Minelab or SoundPeats), my machine will run the 15 second search with the WI-stream and then stops searching.  The Bluetooth symbol does not appear.  It just runs using the external speaker.   Today, I was going to record this problem before sending it in for repair.  Of course it is now working.  So could it be possibly a problem with being on the beach?  There is much more EMI where I am staying.
