Whites Detectors & Garrett Z-lynk / Will This Work?


Recommended Posts

Hello. Using the forum search didn't bring up a confirmation. So, if this was asked in the past I'm sorry for the repeat.

My question is, will the Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk wireless kit work with the MXT or DFX? The manual states compatible with nearly any brand; and from detector pro I know they have a special white's switch build in. Anyone using this setup for his White's detector?

  • Steve Herschbach changed the title to Whites Detectors & Garrett Z-lynk / Will This Work?

Garrett Z-Lynk employs a transmitter box and as such will work with any detector with the correct adapter. There is nothing special about White’s audio output. The Detectorpro switch is not a “White’s” switch, it is a stereo / mono switch. Some detectors put out mono, some stereo, and you need to be properly matched in that regard. Many detector headphones have a stereo / mono switch for this reason. Most White’s detectors have stereo output.

Only Minelab to my knowledge uses non-standard wiring to ground and shut off the external speaker on some of their models.

Long story short, for any audio system not working properly, acquiring and using the correct mono to stereo adapter (or vice versa) will almost always do the trick.

Just a reminder.... Z-Lynk is proprietary and will not work with standard Bluetooth headphones.

Z-Lynk Manual

Compatibility
• Z-Lynk can be used with both VLF and pulse metal detectors.
• These modules can be paired with any Garrett wireless-enabled device. This wireless system is nearly universal, designed to work with almost any brand of metal detector and almost any wired headphone.

I will add the Quest Wirefree Mate should also work, I've used it on all of my detectors.  It's worked on my Minelabs too, works on my GM1000 and GPX 4500.  It even works on my QED and the QED is very fussy with audio.

Its home is on my Gold Bug Pro.

It just passes whatever signal though it receives from your detector to your existing headphones.

And I’ve got the TaoTronics low latency Bluetooth for my White’s. Any matched set of transmitters and receivers will work on almost any device. That’s kind of the entire point of using a transmitter box.

@Steve Herschbach - Thank you for your responses and the clarification about the switch.

@phrunt - Thank you for your response, too.

I'll keep all your good advice in mind and have to read some more about wireless HP before I decide what to use.

Hello Steve.

Yesterday the TT low latency Bluetooth arrived and a set of BT headphones. Works great on my MXT. Mounted the BT-TR with Scotch dual lock to the MXT so I can swap detectors very easy. Thank you a lot for your advice.

Agree with the Simon......the Quest Wirefree works perfectly with my Whites MX7 and XL Pro.

      I saw this posted on another forum and am wondering if anyone here has tried.
      I will post your question on detector prospector forum and see if some one responds.

      I have a ML GPX 4500 and want to buy a control box cover that has a battery pocket. So, I need a shorter power cord...any idea where to get one (and ensure it meets specs)??
      And, any suggestions on the best headphones? ...Killer Bee Wasp?

      So I have the Multi Kruzer and the Gold Racer, both use the same green wireless headphones. In the manual says I need a wireless module to connect the headphones to the Gold Kruzer. Problem is the case I have doesn't have a port on the side to plug a wireless module. There is no information on where to buy a module from Nokta for the Racer 2 and Gold Racer. I thought maybe they updated stuff and built in the wireless module but the headphones won't pair up to the Gold Racer.
      Did they just change the case so these machines can't use wireless headphones, discontinue the module and not update the manuals?
      I emailed support but haven't heard back yet.

      Anyone have input on which of these is better? Plan to do some detecting snorkeling in maybe 6ft of water in Mexico in a couple weeks. Using a Nox 800

      Have any of you fellas been able to use a wireless low latency transmitter with the Sovereign?  Something like the Quest Wire Free Mate, Garrett Z-link or Trond?  
      I tried a cheap Chinese one off Amazon but I don't think it could handle the power coming from the headphone jack and it was clipping the the sound really bad.  
      Thanks!

      Would a SP01 Enhancer help with beach detecting on the 2200d? Down to our last couple in the store so wondering if I should grab one now or if it would be a waste if I'm not using it on gold. 
       
      Cheers.
