After reading all the headphone threads I was expecting everything to be hard. I decided to try today anyway and plugged my regular ear buds (bob marleys) into the nox 800 and they worked fine, no external speaker, sound in both ears. Then I tried cheap ones we buy in packs of 4 for $10 for spares and those worked fine too.
Now my plan for waterproof headphones is to just buy cheap waterproof ear buds. I also found some m12 cable connectors that I think will seal up over the earbud jack for a waterproof and secure conection to the back of the nox. I have to order and try that though.
That wasn't at all what I was expecting after reading all the posts so I though I should mention it.
I mentioned this last year and will re address the subject. Has anyone compiled information of real signature so as one can listen ti clipping and signatures that a re funky in the different tone modes. Although I have been a detectorist for years, many of the new detectors sounds tell more of a story than some are used to. I am wondering if anyone has such a compilation. It seems many love to post their finds on you tube but forget that the sound is just as important. But they keep the headsets on which does not help the cause.. We are used in most cases to what some coins and jewelty sound like, but a clipped ring id different. Perhaps some one might know of such a tool. As always thanks for helping.
A couple of months ago I put out a call for the parts list for the WM12 because my original WM12 was taking forever to charge. At the same time I bought the replacement battery, I also bought some heavier charging cables because I have about half a dozen devices that all use the same cable. I bought cables that were listed as suitable for external hard drives and they were about 6 bucks each. Because I kept changing cables on different devices I don`t even know now what cables came with the WM12. Anyway, with the heavier charging cables my original WM12 now charges QUICKER than the newer WM12, so I don`t need to fit the battery. Maybe, if your WM12 is getting sluggish charging, it may not be the battery, it may be the cable breaking down. Just a thought. Dave
I really don't want to spend $150+ on a set of waterproof phones since I don't do a ton of water hunting.
Anyone tried these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LS-PELSO-WATERPROOF-HEADPHONES-FOR-USE-WITH-MINELAB-EQUINOX600-800METAL-DETECTOR/273858263213?hash=item3fc33978ad:g:CIQAAOSwIbtb6pHb
The battery is ok but, it maybe the speaker or some other connection.
It has static at times and cuts in and out, even when it is clipped to the arm strap on the detector, I have narrowed it down to the WM12 as even when it has headphones plugged in it still does the same as when they are unplugged and with a booster and external speakers it does the same whether they are plugged in or not.
Is there a way to check if it is just the WM12 speaker or something else inside it.
It looks like the actual speaker is a replacement part? and would hopefully be cheaper than a whole new WM12
So for now I am just plugging the booster and dual speakers into the back of the 7000 near the battery, but after getting used to being unteathered by cables it is just a bit annoying when you put the machine down and go to retrieve the target.
This is a rather simple question. The adapter cable from Minelab part #3011-0369 is 30 inches long and comes with a Velcro strap about 8 inches long. Has anyone figured out a good way to use this strap to secure the cable to the detector when adapting the cable to the back of the control module. It should come out under the armrest. I am sure there is a correct way. Thanks.
