I had talked with Detector Pro on the issue of headphones for the Gold Monster 1000 and I said they would do well on sales if someone would come out with a good after market headphones. Well they thought about it and called me back informing me that they are answering the call to produce a high quality headphones for the Monster that will eliminate the external speaker sound from coming thru. These headphones are the same as the Gray Ghost headphones but were made specifically for the Gold Monster. They are the Gold Series and there will be a special headphones coming out for the Exuinox as well. The cord is a pigtail style with an 1/8" jack that shuts off the external speaker. The sound is sharp and crisp with no distortion. The pigtail cord is 6" longer than the Gray Ghost headphones and I assure you there will be no more kneeling on the cord as we all have had to deal with until we just use the Monster without headphones. I feel these headphones are very comfortable  and block out external noises very well and they have a volume control on the side as well. I have the proto type as I have been asked to field test these wonderful headphones by DetectorPro.I will let everyone know when they will be available for purchase. 20180524_210406.thumb.jpg.1209b2794508a9e70d241f4843ce35b6.jpg

Very nice, though other than marketing I don’t see a need for two models. Anything that works in the Monster should work on the Equinox and vice versa. Good news, thanks for posting.

If you already have good 1/4" headphones you can use this to use your existing headphones

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3-5mm-Male-To-6-35mm-Female-Headphone-MP3-CD-Stereo-Audio-Extension-Cable-30cm/252399663440?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

Which lets any 1/4" headphones work on the GM1000 and disables the internal speaker.

Bought a bunch of these from RadioShack. Pass them out to my friends with gold monsters. Don't know why the price went up. They were on closeout last month for a buck-fifty each. Now a little bit more. But they work with my Grey Ghost, Sun Rays or any other headphone. Nice tight fit works well.

Welcome to the forum DanKT.  

I prefer the ones with a bit of a cord on them, so there isn't such a big bunch of plugs sticking out the back of the machine, but yes, your sort do work perfectly well on a Monster.

Well, having both the Gold Monster and Equinox, I would not be interested in phones that work with one but not the other. The Equinox 600 and Gold Monster both come with the same set of wired headphones, so we know one set will work identically on both.

Now if the version for the Equinox is waterproof and uses the waterproof connection that’s another story.

      GM 1000------or------Equinox 800 (with small coil)?

    • By Boogness
      I’m looking for input about these three machines on what you like vs dislike on each of these detectors. 
      Me, personally since I do not own or even seen any of these detectors will even give my own likes vs dislikes.
      GM1000 - I like how it is a very hot machine capable of finding small stuff and how I hear it is a turn on and go detector with only a ferrous/nonferrous indicator. I don’t know how it reacts to hot rocks or if there is away you can avoid them. The best part about these three is I hear it’s the simplest to use(thinking about my dad who is interested but doesn’t have the patience to learn machines if he ever wants to use one of mine)
       
      Equinox - again I like how it is hot on small gold and even more with the new 6” coil. I hear it’s water proof? I don’t know how complicated it can be to learn this machine or if it can read the ground for search a good spot to run a sluice.
       
      Whites 24k - pretty much if it is hot on small gold I like the idea. What I really like about this machine is it’s ability to track black sand for a possible prospect. I like the option to cancel out the iron on both the low reading numbers and the high reading numbers. I’m thinking this might be a little complicated for a newbie with all the functions but I really like the controls the machine has. 
       
      Bottom line is I am trying to decide which new detector I am gonna buy next year and want to hear your likes and dislikes about each of these machines.

      Still can't seem to get my @%^&&&() Black Widows to work wireless but OK now wired. Has anyone had issues with putting the module close to the phones?   Also mine seems to be falling on it's face in moving salt water, but that is another thread.   Dave
