  1. I just did the. .07 update and I had to re-pair the ws6. And I lost all my custom programs, so I have to do them all over again. Are we going to have to go through this every time there is an update? It is a pain in the rear if we have to do this every time.
  2. Took the Deus ll to Riverfront Park here in Corvallis, OR. It is a popular place where people like to eat lunch, hang out, lay on the grass, play catch and take their pets. There is a large grassy area that I have detected before, but never actually covered it thoroughly. I just had a feeling that there could be a ring in there. This time I started at one end and started working my across back and forth, moving over a few steps each time across, working towards the other end. I had covered about 3/4 of the area when I got a 67 signal on the Deus ll. About 4 inches down was this man's wedding ring. It is marked "Benchmark 10k", and weighs 6.9 grams. It looks more gold colored in the picture because of the lighting, but it is actually 10K white gold.
  3. I discovered something today. I was having trouble with the MI6 connecting with the Deus ll when I turned it on. Sometimes it would take several seconds to connect with the remote. I would turn it on and then sit there waiting and waiting for it to connect, which was frustrating. Then I discovered that if I pointed the pinpointer at the remote when I turned it on it had no problem connecting. After that I didn’t have any problem with it. I never had to do that with the Deus.
  4. I took one off of my ws4 and put it on my ws6. Works fine.
  5. Yes. That is one downside. You are tethered to the detector by the cord. But it is worth it for me to be able to use my hearing aids while I’m detecting.
  6. I posted a while back that I had purchased the bone phones to try with my hearing aids. I just got my Deus 2 a couple of days ago. Today I tried the bone phones for the first time. They work wonderfully with my hearing aids. Now I can wear my hearing aids when I am detecting. That is a big difference for me when I am detecting. I am very happy with them.
  7. Part of my hearing aid sits behind my ear and when I wear the ws4 with the headband it presses my ear down onto my hearing aid. It doesn’t take very long before my ears start hurting from the pressure. The larger headphones that fit completely over the ears don’t make my ears hurt, but they cause feedback which is a high pitched squealing noise that is very annoying. According to my hearing doctor my hearing loss is pretty severe.
  8. That is what I am hoping for. That XP or someone else will make an adapter to convert the bone phone plug to a 1/8 plug for land use, so I can plug it into my ws6 puck.
  9. Yes, that is the place. I ordered it on eBay. The shipping was a little more because it was coming from France ($35) but at least I will have it when I get my Deus ll. I figured that after they start shipping the detectors to the US, it will probably be a while before the accessories become available here. I tried them on my head and the the band has a curve that goes over the top of my ears and my hearing aids, so they don’t interfere with my hearing aids. I am very hopeful that these will be my solution as far as headphones go. I won’t know until I get the Deus ll and can actually try them.
  10. I will have to plug it in to the remote, so I will be tethered to the detector. But if I can wear my hearing aids, I am OK with that. I am hoping that later on someone will come up with an adapter to connect the bone phones into the ws6 puck.
  11. Even though I haven’t got my Deus ll yet (It’s on pre-order) I went ahead and ordered the bone phones for it. They came from France, and I was surprised how fast they got here. I’m hoping that they will work well with my hearing aids. Right now with the Deus I am removing my hearing aids and plugging earphones into the ws4 puck. With the bone phones I am hoping that I can wear my hearing aids while I am detecting.
  12. With the Deus backphones you can remove the little puck from the backphones and purchase a wired headphone adapter that clips onto the back of the puck. Then you can plug your earphones into the puck and it works just like the Equinox wireless module. I usually just stick the little puck in my shirt pocket.
  13. I got a gold testing kit and tested the gold chain. It’s a fake. Talk about a letdown 😪. Found this today in the grass at a Park. I was using my Equinox 800. This is the best thing that I have ever found metal detecting. It weighs 43.5 grams and is marked 18K.
  14. It was more strung out than in a ball. I popped a little bit of it out with my screwdriver, and when I started pulling on it more and MORE and MORE of it started coming out. I measured it when I got home and it is 24 inches long.
