MX Sport Comes Now With Waterproof Headphones

Recommended Posts

I was in a bookstore and pick up a copy of Western & Eastern Treasure mag. I flipped over to the inside of the front page and low & behold was a big blow up of the MX Sport. You may say what the big deal being I have one. What put me in a state of shock Is when I read Waterproof Headphones Included.

The price is the same as it always been. All I can say is people is if you’re looking for a great buy look no further. Look down in the left hand corner of the picture at the number of coils that White’s offer for the Sport.

I hear you Steve but this is my first time seeing the ad.

What can I say. You’re in the know and I don’t know.

I took a look at what you had posted. That was a year ago today as you said.

I was wondering being White’s include the waterproof headphones if they was including the adapter cable as before. So I trot right over their site and sure enough they do.

Question ; Is this the first time that waterproof headphones came with a waterproof detector ? Maybe not being White’s has one detector that has fixed headphones that I think I had one some time ago . Again I think this is the first you’re able to remove and use others.

Whatever the answer it’s a great buy even if I don’t have them .😢 Poor me!

Everyone knows how hard salt water can be on anything. I have four waterproof detectors and three with the cost around 8 hundred or more. Then a hand held under 2 hundred.  I’m like a kid getting into a bathtub not sure if he wants this or not. That’s the same way I am with my high dollar detectors.

I think that dollar two sixty nine detector with scuba gear will go first. Then if this venture pays off and I see it’s truly worth it . I’ll make my pick of the three.

Actually all underwater detectors came with waterproof headphones until recently because they were all hardwired to the detector! Like with White's Surf PI. It's only in recent years that waterproof connectors have become commonplace and reliable enough that we now have removable headphone options.

Thanks Steve

I think that’s what I had but over 20 years ago from White’s. Like you said it was hard wired to the detector.

      I am very impressed with the High trash setting, and am trying to figure out how it is weighted
      you would think it had low sensitivity and high discrimination therefore would lead to less dept and more iron masking in thick iron areas at homesites
      but it actually performs to the contrary of my expectations.
      it goes very deep up to 12 inches and the discrimation level dose not interfere with separating iron from small non ferrous items
      I was using my equinox in all metal mode and my friend had his MX Sport high trash mode, we  where at a colonial homesite, he has getting mixed signal of iron and a high tone and number
      he dug 5 big hand made square nails up to 6", and was still getting the good signal , when i cam over with the equinox in multi frequency  all I was getting was iron, minus signals, with a flash of 11
      but no enough to want to dig, and I predicted it was probably a false from a bent nail
      he kept going and eventually t 10" deep amongst more nails he pulled a penny
      My equinox never sensed this coin, yet high trash on single frequency spotted it at the onset and stuck to it like glue until it was finally retrieved.
      I would love to know the set up and weighting behind this mode some i could apply some to my equinox.

      This specification comparison chart is derived from the White's MX7 Owner's Manual and the White's MX Sport Owner's Manual. Everything is pretty straight forward. The asterisks note that the MX7 weight with batteries is derived from the manual. The MX Sport manual is unclear on whether batteries are included in the weight and my personally weighing the MX Sport with batteries suggests the answer is no. The MX Sport with batteries weighs 4.23 lbs. as weighed on my postal scales. I can't vouch for the MX7 weight as listed in the manual. Current internet price for MX Sport is $749.00 and MX7 $549.00
      I think it is fair to say looking at the specifications that this is a MX Sport in a lighter weight, better balanced and less expensive package. The only real operational difference is the MX Sport comes with a 10" round DD epoxy filled coil and the MX7 a 9.5" round lightweight concentric. This would make the MX Sport out of the box better configured for water hunting and severe mineralization. The MX7 is better configured for park and other dry land detecting in mild to moderate mineralization. Both units can use the same coils.

      Both the MX Sport and the Equinox 800 are waterproof and that’s about where the two are alike ends.
       Now if we want to put the detectors that have the option to run in different frequencies then how would you place them in price? I speaking about the ones that have other frequencies but still run only one at a time .
       Now remember the Equinox is at the top with a price of 899.00 and a true multi frequency.
        Would you want to slip it in between the Sport and the Equinox in price? Maybe we could lower the price of the Sport and place the ones we’ve been talking about in it’s spot..
       Just thinking out loud but everyone has their own opinion.

      I need to know the type and size of the screws in the Sport ? Do you know if it can take a higher voltage without smoking it ?
      If anyone else knows the answer please do reply.
      When I get finish with my Sport we both may not know it.
