I clip it on the cover and use my headphones without wireless module. I found that the Prosonic adds to the EMI of the SDC, hence I use the headphones directly plugged in. It only adds a bit to the weight, but for the SDC the SP01 is a real blessing. I don't use it for the GPZ, also because I don't want to have another metallic object attached on my body close to the detector. In high yield/normal/gain >10 the machine is whining whenever anything metallic comes remotely close. No problem for the SDC though. Note the knuckle guard. That's the single most important investment to make for the SDC.

Well, I was perusing the Steelphase website as I wanted to look at his headphones and discovered this!

Hey Guys,

    Well I only got the use a Steelphase for about 2 trips on my GPZ 7000.  I can't keep them in stock here in the US for the most part.  They sell very well and seem to be the best signal enhancer out there at least for the Minelab GPX, SDC 2300 & GPZ 7000.  As Pat mentioned, you can use it on other manufactures as well.  

If anyone is looking, I have a few left from the last batch, but they will go quickly.

They sure will, even Steelphase is completely out of stock, he suffered a bit of an injury not too long ago and then moved interstate which would slow him down a bit making them I guess, but I look forward to seeing what this new version is, hopefully it's the version that works on the QED that he talked about some time ago, the QED is quite fussy with audio and the original SP01 doesn't work well on it but no fault of the SP01 as it works on everything else, just a compatibility problem between the way the QED does it's audio.  He did hint he was making a cut back version for QED capability, and judging by the blurry photo it looks like the new version could be exactly that, so the original SP01 would still be the premium choice for Minelab users.

I will not detect with my 7000 without it, it's made that much of a difference.
(okay, I might detect without it but you know what I mean - it's really good)

Here is what I would like to see. An SPO1 that also has a built-in speaker and the wireless capabilities to just hook up to the 7000 and ProSonic. I would like to use my SP01 more often but I just don’t like having the WM 12 with a cord to an SP01 with a cord to a speaker.  In my opinion it just gets to be too much.  Same when i would use it with my pro sonic hook up to the SDC.  I’m not an electrician by any means but would it really be that hard to add those two things? Even if it was a little bigger it would be better than having all the corded mess.

Yeah he can add Wi-Fi or Bluetooth with a speaker and now the SP01 will cost $399.00 and be a bit larger too ...... I got mine from Rob's for $199.00 and is very small and light.

Works like a dream and I don't wear headphones anymore.

Well it’s 200 for a WM12 and 200 for an SP01 so i guess that price is a wash. 🤣🤣

      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)
