Important Update On Miccus Sr-71 Headphones

Recommended Posts

I also thought the entire point of Bluetooth was to insure cross device compatibility including backwards compatibility, so I found the seller warning to be odd. Obviously they have been dealing with too many returns from people who could not get their set to pair with an Equinox. I do suspect also it is normally user error, but then you throw in a case of two where the issue seems legit and that complicates things. I am leaving the original post as is however because the seller is warning people and that puts it in the category of buy at your own risk. That is why I made note of the warning... I personally am not stating anything at all about whether the current version works well or not since I do not own a set. I felt since I had helped popularize the use of these alternative phones in the first place I had a responsibility to not the seller warning.

At the same time I want to thank everyone for all the extra info provided here that sheds more light on the situation for those looking for a ML80 alternative.

If there is anyone that has the latest version of these headphones and it appears there is a real issue with pairing, try reverting to an earlier version of the Equinox firmware and give it a another try. We are assuming the issues are with the Miccus update and overlooking that it could also be the last Equinox update involved.

Steve,

Just to add to this, a bit, I can also confirm that the 5.0 Miccus set paired on my Equinox, which is running the newest firmware (2.0), for what that's worth.  This has been a difficult "mess" to try and get to the bottom of...like you say, it's obvious Miccus has heard from a number of folks with pairing issues (hence, their statement about possible incompatibility).  From what I can tell, and as you noted, it is most likely largely a "user error" situation, with respect to the pairing process.  Couple that with perhaps a few cases where the EQX control boxes actually are at fault -- i.e. have pairing issues, AND then perhaps a few sets of defective headphones themselves...mix it all together...and it makes it tough to sort the fact from the fiction and get to the actual, root cause of the situation.

Miccus SR-71 5.0 bluetooth will not work on Equinox 800. Equinox is bluetooth 4.2.

Trond TD-BH01 if it is bluetooth 4.2 will work on the Equinox 800.

How do I know? I own both of the above headphones. Trond has better fidelity than the Minelab wireless headphones SL-80 for the Equinox. This is just my opinion.

I bought these to just give them a try. I really like the way they talk to you. The noise canceling feature is cool (I don't know how it works but it does) but makes it harder to hear your pin pointer so I rarely use it. They are very affordable which is why I tried them. I noticed they would make a really static like sound sometimes and was concerned but have since found out there's just bad junk in the ground causing it. Anyways for $25 I bought another pair for back up. Oh, they pair up way better than my original headphones. I turn on the machine and when its gone through start up I turn these on..you hear power on then it either says pairing then connected or just connected and power off when you shut them down. Also disconnected if you get to far away from your machine or shut down the machine and leave the headphones on. To me they sound good.

maxxkatt -- I have confirmed that Miccus Bluetooth 5.0 headphones WILL work perfectly with the Equinox -- at least they do on my machine, and one of my hunting partners' machines.  

I'm not sure why you are having trouble with yours, but I don't believe it to be an overall incompatibility between Miccus 5.0 phones, and the Equinox.  It could be a bad set of phones, or a mistake in the pairing process, not sure, but I don't think it's a universal issue of incompatibility.

i lost my M/L phones last year and bought the miccus and had no problems.  How did i lose them?  I'll chalk it up to first year off the leash syndrome.

I just bought a pair of the Miccus SR-71s. I tried 6-8 times to pair them with my EQX 600 with no luck. I finally turned to my IT person (my wife) for help. She had similar problems at first but after getting the headphones to pair with her phone she was able to get them to pair with the EQX on the next try. I'm not sure why this would be the case but figured I would share.

      Since I am new here, I wanted my first post(other that the meet and greet post) to hopefully be a contribution and perhaps help a few folks.
      One of the most annoying things when using a corded set of headphones is catching the cord on brush and whatever else it might be attracted to. Well, I recently discovered there was such a thing as wireless headphones but could not find any that I thought I would be satisfied with, so with some research, this is what I came up with.
      I bought a Taotronics blue tooth transmitter $29.95, a set of Cowen noise canceling low latency blue tooth headphones $59.99 and a Moborest 1/4" male to 1/8" female stereo adapter $9.98(2 to a pkg). Plugged adapter into my MXT, plugged transmitter into adapter, turned everything on including MXT, followed simple directions for pairing trans. to headphones and low and behold I now have wireless headphones for my detector.
      I put a small square of sticky back velcro on the transmitter(which is very small) and the another on the side of the machine and just stuck them together, to hold the trans. in place. The trans. can always be unplugged and remover if warranted.
      I found everything on Amazon.
      This may be old knowledge to some but I maybe there are a few folks this info. will help.
      Anyway, glad to be here and hope this will help someone.
      Su Amigo, Canoe

      Plug in a booster/headphones into the WM12 (Gpz7000) or plug it directly into the 7000??
      Obviously, wire-free would be more convenient but would the signal be clearer/stronger going hardwired?
      (I'm not concerned about the minute bit of lag when using a wireless system)
      Thought i would ask before testing this on my next trip.

      Hopefully someone can help me. I have an Equinox 600 that I can pair my earbuds to but I hear no sound. The earbuds are paired as Bluetooth + as indicated on the machine. I have tried other earbuds with the same problem. I have reset the machine multiple times. I am using Soundpeats Q12HD earbuds. I am at a loss. Thanks

      Does anyone know what the waterproof plug Nokta uses for the headphones is, I have a pair of Tony Eisenhower headphones for my Nox 600 and want to convert them to Nokta, they are much more comfortable than the Nokta waterproof’s, Thanks

      Hi all, and thanks for letting me join. 
      I know this has been asked previously but I was recommended (by another forum user) to get a pair of AptxLL Qualcomm headphones to use with my 600. The ones I went for were August EP640 4.1, which is the same ones the user said works perfectly for.
      Ok, charged them up, switched on 600, switched on headphones to search for BT. No joy, tired it every way but alas, no luck. Two strange things, I can connect a pair of crappy standard headphones in a few seconds to the 600 but the lag and sound is so crappy it's a non-runner. I can also connect my EP640s to my phone , laptop and tablet in seconds. But not my 600. I sent him a message to ask what his experience with them was, he replied that he couldn't understand as his connected easily.   Help!
      Has anyone any answers/tips/reasons?
      Many thanks in advance. (Paddyspurs)
