Has anyone tried them with a metal detector?

I came across an article which displayed some Bose audio sunglasses.  The concept was not something I had really considered but when you read about them they are built for athletes that need to be aware of their surroundings to avoid accidents.  We detect in areas where we need to avoid accidents and critters also so hearing outside of headphones is beneficial.  This would also have the potential of eliminating hot and or uncomfortable headphones for me in the desert.  I don't think they could work well at the beach with crashing waves.

Maybe we can begin a review of these Bose and other audio sunglasses here.  Of course there would need to be some with LL and other technical specifications to work with our equipment but it could also be a new product idea for one of these companies.

As a guy with glasses and hearing aids... I like! I may order a prescription set as polarized sunglasses, could be great for wading work as well as the desert.

I have a Buddy that bought them for fishing videos!  Problem with Prospecting is when looking around your giving away your area.  Other than that they work fine and we’ve made some great videos with them.

Lucky,

These don't have a camera.  It is just blue tooth audio.

I think if there is not a lag it could be a great product for many prospectors.

Unfortunately they only mention Bluetooth 5, no Aptx-LL. Won't work with Equinox. 😵

Yes, I know it is not mentioned but ... maybe someone knows about another sunglass speaker?

They will work, just not low latency - bummer.

Would be interesting to find out, because I would like to have something like that for the eyes and hearing both.

Would make it nice because I have tried headphones and my ears fill up with sweat all the time.

I have just left a message on the Bose community.  If I was an electronics entrepreneur I'd work hard and fast on making some of these glasses and sell the idea or the product.

There are these style that don't include the glasses, but still let your hear the environment too. Unfortunately not AptX either though...

I stopped using headphones entirely because of rattlers and I like to listen for my dog in case he hurts himself. I dig the concept of having phones that let you hear the environment.

I can see XP making something like this for some reason.

      Morning all,  
      I have been looking for something that will essentially work like a WM08 (the Equinox wireless receiver) but on the GPX 6000.  Something that can then simply have any type of earphone, earbud, on ear or over ear headphones attached to it.  
      I specifically wish to plug some Philips Sports earbuds into a Receiver.  They sit out of the ear to allow some ambient sound in so you are aware of surroundings.  And don't sit inside your ear like a proper ear bud that can get all sweaty and yuck.  I've used the Philips before and they are perfect for me.  

       
      The supplied Minelab GPX 6000 headphones work great - but I'm not keen on headphones as they are hot and they make it difficult to wear a broad brimmed hat.  I do recognise there are other hat options.   
       
      The non Bluetooth options:
      The Quest kit is great (  http://phasetechnical.com.au/product/quest-wirefree-mate-kit/  )  and  although I know they work really well, they definitely only pair with each other and I do not want to attach a Transmit unit to the GPX 6000 - possibility of EMI, an extra thing to get knocked off, an extra thing to charge and the functionality of a Bluetooth LL Transmitter is already in the GPX so why not use it!! 🤪   
      The Minelab Pro Sonic is too expensive and would need a Transmitter attached to the detector. 
      The Garrett Z-Link - would also need a Transmitter attached to the detector.  
       
      Bluetooth APTX Low Latency options:
      I have ordered the Avantree AS70 as it said they were due for release at the start of June.  But since ordering (4 days ago) that has been changed to the end of July  😤    https://avantree.com/au/as70-bluetooth-adapter-for-headphones   They are the latest version of the Clipper Pro previously mentioned on DP as having worked well.  The Clipper Pro seems completely unavailable now. 
      I like the look of the AS70 and Clipper Pro as they have a good clip that will attach to a shirt, collar, harness or whatever. 
      There are these  https://avantree.com/au/lock-bluetooth-transmitter-receiver-set    but they are a pair and I wonder if the Receive unit will work directly with the GPX or will it only pair with the Transmit unit (it does say auto pairing with each other in the write up).
      Chase Goldman had previously mentioned these as working well:
      TaoTronics 65ft Bluetooth Transmitter/Receive https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076BMT9BY
      TROND Bluetooth V5.0 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B4W40VC/       Newer version here     https://www.amazon.com/TROND-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Indicator-Simultaneously-dp-B01K8ANDCI/dp/B01K8ANDCI/ref=dp_ob_title_ce
      I notice the TaoTronics is currently unavailable on Amazon.
      At this stage I may get one of the newer Trond units as that will at least be a back up for my upcoming big trip and may end up being my main unit if the Avantree does not turn up in time.  
      There are a few others mentioned on this site  http://www.aptx.com/  but some look el-cheapo, some are no longer made (the site is not kept up to date in that regard), none of them have a clip to attach to clothing and I am unsure if any of them actually pair with a Vanguish/Equinox/GPX6.  
      Anything that pairs and works well in Low Latency with the Equinox/Vanquish should work well with the GPX 6000.  Would be even happier if my Equinox WM08 just hooked up (shame on you Minelab 😜)
      So my questions, finally!  
      What other brands have worked for people?
      Is the audio quality good?  Manufacturing quality good?  Somewhat weatherproof?
      Is the Low Latency good?   
      Have they paired easily with no issues? 
      What sort of time frame are the batteries lasting for most people?     
      Hoping you good people can share some 1st hand experiences - good or bad - and this can be a one stop resource for others searching for a similar device.  
       
      Cheers, N.E.  👍

      Has anyone tried one of these to waterproof their WM08 module?

      Last week,  I attempted to power on the ML 80 headphones I use with the Equinox 800.  I purchased these new in March 2019.  They would not power on.  I charged them:  the 3 red LEDs flash for about 10 minutes and then turn off, as if headphones were charged.  But, the headphones still will not power on.
      I attempted to contact my dealer and ML, but neither have yet responded.  Does anybody have any novel ideas to try, or troubleshooting, remedies?  I would greatly appreciate the help!
       
      Thanks,

      As a new member of the forum I suspect this question has been dealt with many times in the past .I am having a problem linking my WM 08 to my Nox 600 .It just does not happen ,full charge on both and 2 ft apart .I have tried at least a dozen times .(headphones not turned on or involved .Can anyone help ?

      I have asked some and received their ideas and suggestions 
      if you are running wireless which transmitter and headphones are you using. 
       
      What kind of run time are you getting out of the ones you chose ?  
       
      Sound Quality? 
       
      I can get the Z-Link or the Minelab sets up but thought someone might have a really good setup they have ran across
      Thanks 
      Jim
