I’ve been wanting to use the pig tail that comes with my Tarsacci but at the same time I wanted the new Sun Ray Pro Gold headphones to go with it. I just like being able to unplug from my Tarsacci anytime I want. The headphones have a universal plug that the 1/4” screws down over the 1/8” making it two plugs in one so to say. It also has a volume control for each ear that helps me a lot being the hearing in my right ear is not as good as the other.

If you’re wondering why it’s called a pig tail because it’s short like one.


One important thing you need to do is anchor the pig tail down to the shaft so not to be pulling directly on it . If you don’t it’s going to take a beating and not last long at all.

 You can see in the picture below how I fixed that .The last picture as you can see is with the headphones plugged in.


PS The headphones came from Rob’s detectors .

That's a good set up.

I have rigged my MDT 8000 similarly but with the Garrett Z Link & Killer B's Hornet headphones. The larger ear cups are nice and it also has the 1/4 to 1/8 screw off adapter. If I need to, I can plug them in directly to the pig tail. The sound quality for me is improved, especially the Disc audio.

I have a setup similar to JCR. I have the Z Link system, but have the Garrett headphones too. Made the machine a touch heavier, but when I moved the wireless router to just below the arm rest, it balanced things out nicely. Just not into wired headphones...

The MS 3 headphones are very good. I just find the 150 ohm headphones to give a brighter, more distinct tone. I keep the receiver pod in my right shirt pocket.

The ties I used to anchor the pig tail on my Tarsacci can be bought at Harbor Fright and they great for holding coil cable to the shaft.

 You can see what tries look like and you can get them smaller if you wish. The second picture is just to show them holding the cable to the shaft and how I like to run the cable up the shaft.

      I was experimenting with Dan(MN)'s mod of mounting the WM-08 to a pair of good quality wired headphones, which works really well. I read the Equinox manual section about the WM 08 and saw that its latency is only 17ms whereas Low Latency Bluetooth is 40ms and normal Bluetooth is up to 100ms.
      I have been using LL Bluetooth ear buds all Summer and Fall so I'm used to the way they respond, but when I tested my new WM 08 rig, I couldn't really tell any difference in response time/latency. I guess I was expecting there to be a noticible difference.
      So my questions are, for those who use the WM 08 module, can you tell a difference as opposed to Bluetooth? Do you prefer to use the WM 08 setup and why?

      I finally had a chance to get out with the MDT 8000 again this afternoon. I hunted a different area that is not so heavily iron littered. This was my first chance to run Mixed mode for any length of time. It is much more dynamic & telling than straight Disc mode. I was able to call the big iron & small trash just fine. Dug some nice period targets including an unusual Flat button in very good condition. It is classed as a Patriotic/Political button in Albert's book; PC106A. A pretty neat find for around here.
      Still learning the MDT & playing with Ground balance & Salt balance. Today was 12kHz,  Sens 6-7, TH -3, Disc +30. Not clean ground by any means but only 1-2 nails per sweep instead of a half dozen. This is sticky Red clay with plenty of natural Iron oxide, GB in the high 800's to mid 900's.

      So I did a little more experimenting with the WM08 and various wired headphones I have around the house and I am noticing a little difference in latency VS Bluetooth, specially with pinpointing as suggested in responses to my previously posted WM08 question. I also noticed quite a difference in sound of different headphones when used with the WM08 too. I've been looking into some of your suggested headphones, such as Gray Ghost, Sunray Gold, Killer Bee, etc., as well as looking at older posts regarding headphones for use with the Equinox.
      This leads me to ask a question to those of you who prefer wired phones with your Nox. What full over-the-ear wired headphones do you prefer with your Equinox and why? TIA for your help.

      I noticed that these don't come with a volume control.  Is that because it's harder to hear under water and not needed?  Would I be better off with a pair of Amphibians from Detector Pro?

      I had a crack , with my cogs as well , but found the cables a pain in the arse ...
