  1. I have some hearing loss and want to get another headphone that's louder. I don't have a problem with most of my detectors but I have 2 detector that are very soft hits on deep targets.
  2. Got em today and am blown away so far with music...... Sounds like Dave Matthews voice is in the middle of my head..... WOW.....
  3. Avantree Wearable Bluetooth Speaker Headphones and Bluetooth MD21 Transmitter (minersden.com.au) Not real sure why you`d want the transmitter if your detector has BT aptx Low Latency but price seems ok. Myself I`ll be seriously considering for the Axiom, rather than a X-linx receiver and a powered speaker, no headphones for me I got spoilt by the Z.
  4. Has anyone found a pair of headphones that are just like the ones furnished with the 800 (bluetooth, aptx-LL, over ear, not earbuds) but are waterproof/resistant and have a higher quality audio for metal detectors? I am not super happy with the stock ones because I can't wear in the rain and audio is pretty sub-par in my opinion.
  5. I hope that someone can help me out with a problem that I now have. My hearing is getting bad due to constant ringing in the ears and I am unable to hear all the tones. This has happened due to using a mini-sub for work all the time and the doctor tells me that it will only get worse. I have my grandfathers 800 that I have been using and am having problems hearing the tones that I know was there before. Soon I have to start taking a break from work or I will lose my hearing all together and I thought I would get back out there with the detector. Does anyone have any suggestions that I can do to be able to hear the tones, or do I just need to use the ID's on the display. I can no longer hear low tones or real short tones and that is what bothers me, and I don't like wearing headphones because I want to be able to hear what is around me. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you, Caleb
  6. I have been trying to use my Sun Ray head phones with my 6000. I purchased an adapter to convert the 1/4” plug to eighth inch but I only get 1/2 the volume. Are there different adapter for a 1/4” plug that might make it work correctly? Anyone else use Sun Ray head phones with the 6000?
  7. With my $200 win on a 'scratchy card' which I received as a reward for recovering a ring, I've bought myself a new set of headphones for the Equinox.. They caught my attention because of the curly cord and the waterproof connection to the control box.. They'll make a big difference when detecting in the surf or preventing rouge waves from flooding the connection when I put the detector down on the beach.. Compared to similar headphones they're also a bargain, costing just $59 (Ozzy dollars).. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/384118312800
  8. hi all has anyone had trouble with pairing the 600 with aftermarket headphones i ordered a pair of low latency aptx bluetooth head phones which paired fine but just made a crackling sound so tried some cheaper ones i had in the house and none of them paired at all so went back to crawfords who tried the tronds on another 600 and the same again and tried pairing the other phones i took still would not pair on the shop 600 only phones that paired and worked fine were the mindlab ones so had to buy them so was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with after market headphones even tried a pair of £200 beats headphones from the guy across the road and again they paired but no sound just a faint crackling sound could be heard the guy in crawfords was very helpful and is going to contact minelab and ask them about it so if anyone has had this problem to i would like to hear from you regards andy
  9. Although I love the supplied wireless APTX headphones, I was wondering if anyone has experience with noise cancelling headphones on the 6000 or if anyone has success with actual, real 'low latency' performance with mini in-ear sports earphones? I could spend big $$ trialing lots of various brands, models etc but might be worth asking first lol. I'm mainly thinking about having the noise cancellation ability to reduce the coil scraping noise, twigs snapping etc and solely concentrating on the audio signals.
  10. decided to try the wm08 wireless module again on my EQ. fully charged it and kept it in a pouch around my waist to keep it close to the EQ head unit. Getting this annoying signal clipping going on. If I plug in the phones directly nothing....sound is great. I'm running 50 tones. Anyone else seeing this sort of issue? wondering if I have a faulty wireless module.
  11. Realizing that the Axiom is not in anyone's hands yet other than testers, I'll assume Z-Lynk is Z-Lynk and have the following question... (I bet you smart cookies already know it based in the subject line). I have a brand new Pro-Sonic system here should I hold off on it and use it on my Axiom instead of the built in Z-Lynk. I'm aware of the internal vs external yadda yadda... Has anyone done a flat out comparison between the two technologies? I have ZERO experience with Z-Lynk and the one Pro-Sonic I had before this one was rubbish and had lots of EMI noise from my 5000..... (this one I have now I've tested and it works great). I'm starting to divest myself of my Minelab stuff, is Z-Lynk good enough that I can dump the Pro-Sonic on the classifieds ? Thank you in advance for reading and for commenting if you have DIRECT experience with using both technologies... Jen
  12. Curious if the Legend is compatible with the Pulse Dive pointer and maybe the Green headphones. Anyone know?
  13. It's only been out a few weeks but may be a good alternative to the Pro-Sonic, has anyone picked one up yet? How do you like it, how's the latency, how long is a charge lasting you? Nenad @PhaseTech, is that your SDC lead in his hand or are they selling their own now? Jen
  14. Hello, I am looking for a solution on how to vibrate the Equinox 600/800 detector for a deaf person who will use it underwater. As you know, a deaf person wears hearing aids that are not waterproof and cannot be immersed under water, and in these headphones he is not able to hear the signals, too much hearing loss is about 95dB. I did a few attempts with a small amplifier and vibration motor from an old cell phone, but there are problems: - after connecting the system to the Nox800 on the cable, the motor makes a slight buzzing noise but does not react to the metal signal in the coil, - after connecting the system to the WM08 wireless module, the vibration works great on signals, but unfortunately after the detector is submerged under water, it loses the wireless connection. - if I connect the headphone (computer) cable to the Noxa800 and at the end of the handset (the signal is heard in the headphones) I cut the cable and solder it to the system, vibration works great on the signals. Why is it that the vibration does not work directly on the cable and it works through the headphone cable? Is there anyone on the forum who will cover this topic? One more thing. The deaf person uses an induction loop instead of headphones, which works with the hearing aid above the water and on the ground. This loop connected to the detector via the cable is perfect, but when it is connected to the WM08, a buzzing can be heard in the background. How to do it to eliminate interference?
  15. Hello everyone, this is a subject that I am always obsessed with 😅. Which metal detector has your favorite sound tone? Ps:the sound of my favorite whites mxt all pro sounds very nice 😗
  16. As promised in another thread, I went to my small beach with the Deus 2 to try out settings that @ColonelDan posted. While I had similar results with simply using Beach Sensitive and Beach programs, I was intrigued by the tweaks. Another beautiful day, I was only at this spot for 3 hours, it's my 13th wedding anniversary. My wife insisted I go as long as I spent the rest of the day doing what she wanted to. Who could say no? 😀 I quickly set up Beach Sensitive using the settings from this thread: Off I went. I used Reactivity 1.5 and everything else as mentioned. I don't move very fast, but wanted a bit quicker response. Typically if a target, especially in the water, is much deeper than 12" I don't want to leave a crater so I pass on it. Faint signals are usually deep. I try to refill holes when people are there in the water. First thing I noticed was that when I encountered large shallow iron, the BH-01 headphones just about jumped off my head, the sensation was almost painful, so I turned audio volume down to 8. I was also worried about blowing up the phones 😀 it happened a few more times so with the bone conduction headphones I'll have to figure out a better volume for iron. Otherwise, the bottle cap rejection was great, I scooped a few but knew what they were. This beach and the sand underwater out to about chest deep is pretty clear of targets, especially since I've been here. 😁 I got two other large sinkers and a nice croaker rig but left them for fishermen. I like the settings, even deep targets jump right out. Just have to do something about that iron blast 🤔 it shakes the headphones so much I fear damage. I really like square pitch audio and the BH-01 headphones. It's great having situational awareness and loud audio for targets, as I have long hoped to have with bone conduction. Hopefully a wireless pair will be developed eventually. I find the headphones comfortable, even like they're not there - both with wire in front or back. The audio is excellent when positioned properly. I'll probably leave the Deus 2 in permanent beach mode! The only target that jumped out for me today was a 2001 clad quarter, so again not a total skunk. Solid 95. I'm going to let this place alone for a while, probably until after 4 July. I've got other water hunts coming up, but by then here will be beach only because of the jellyfish. It was a great day to get out and hack around, and I took my wife and dog out all afternoon, we had a blast. 🤗 Here's a gratuitous butterfly photo: Thanks to ColonelDan for the settings! 👍
  17. Good morning DP forum. Now that the GPX6 has been out for awhile and I'm sure people have had time to play with various boosters, I'm wondering what the consensus is. The easy question, do you think they are worth it? Do they make enough of a difference to bother with the extra attachments and cables - even if they are kept to a minimum? 5% improvement? 20% improvement? Have you done any specific testing over un-dug targets with and without booster? Interested to hear your thoughts and, if you continued to use a booster, what are you using and how have you set it up? Are you using speakers or wired headphones to the booster? The reason I ask is that I am considering purchasing a booster, but my gut feel is that it is not going to make enough of a difference to be worth it. My current set-up of AS70 BT LL receiver attached to my shirt and then plugged into either some ear buds or a speaker provides good clarity audio. Perhaps a booster allows lower detector volume and a smoother threshold for the same sensitivity setting? Or improved signal response? Really interested to hear the responses. And JP, Doc and Phase Tech - please don't sit on the side lines just because you manufacture/sell them - would love to hear your views too 👍 Cheers, N.E.
  18. Anyone figured out a good way to make the headphones more insulated to wind noises? I just used them for the first time (I've been toughing it out with the speaker until now, I hate headphones), winds 30-40mph, and it almost wasn't much better than just using the speaker, I could still barely hear the detector through the headphones. It's like they need some earmuffs to go over them to dampen the wind or something.
  19. Haven't been posting much, been very busy on a few home projects. A few weeks ago I was browsing Amazon and others for Aptx-LL headphones and came upon these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B085DKHY5K Falwedi Active Noise Cancelling Headphones. They are over ear, and only $39.95, but broke as I am waiting for Social Security, I was thrilled to get them for $29.95 that day. 🤣 Whenever I find something like this, I always search the reviews and questions for "broke" or "broken", I was shocked to find only 4 of over 1700 mentions. Not bad! I also search for "Equinox", not trusting the "bathroom lawyers". There was one mention among all the other reviews confidently stating they were not Aptx-LL. So, I took a chance. They arrived in this snazzy case with cords and stuff. Here are the details: Excellent padding on the earmuffs and headband, if you get uncomfortable with these consider a head transplant. 😀 They seal solidly over the ears for folks that want the world shut out, and you can turn on noise cancelling independently, which reduces the level a bit. When I write that these are loud, I mean it - LOUD. You may have to turn the Equinox output volume down if you have these full blast. YMMV. They have metal backing for the plastic adjusters. I think the Achilles' heel is the swivel joint, some electrical tape wrapped around that always prevents breakage for me. You can use them at any level you want, the USB C fast charging input charges them up for 40 (!) hours of use. No distortion, and low tones are bassy. All in all these headphones are going to be my new favorite for cold weather hunting, they pair faster and more reliably than any other headphones I have. Turn them on first, wait for the "pairing" prompt, then turn the Equinox on. Bam. Zoom the pic to see the B+.
  20. I picked up a couple of sets of ear buds to try with the Legend because in the summer in Arizona it is way to hot to wear over the ear headphones, picked up a couple decent pairs to try 1 pair made by TOZO they work flawlessly connected rite up as soon as i turned the Legends Bluetooth on in a matter of 2 seconds the second pair was a set of bone conduction made by a different company called Dunspin they were equally as fast connecting to the Legend, both pairs have no lag from what I can tell and sound really clear when detecting just wanted to post this up to give people options picked both up on Amazon
  21. I just received a new Vanquish 540 pro pack today. I was hoping to keep it simple for the wife to use. Currently she uses a Whites Classic ID with the Garrett Z-link module and headphones. The Garrett headphones are flawless. Doesn't matter what you turn on first and they connect quickly. The Vanquish with the ML80's seems to be a bit touchy IMO. If you turn the headphones on first and then the detector it seems to work ok. The problem I keep having is I keep hitting the blue tooth button instead of the button for the different programs. Then when I press the button to turn the blue tooth back on it takes longer to connect than it initially did. They shouldn't have placed that button so close and made it the same size as the programs button. I know on the Equinox it's on the side somewhere. Mind you, I just got this detector a few hours ago so I will probably get use to hitting the correct button once I use it some. I'm tempted to somehow cover that button where it can't be pushed so easily. Anyone else had this issue and come up with a solution? The Garrett's also have auto off if you don't use them for an extended period of time. What about the ML80's? Will they just stay on until the battery drains? I don't see anything in the manual about that. Thanks for your comments. Harold

    What does anyone like for Tarsacci Headphones for wading? It would seem simple connection waterproofing of stock headphones would be enough for general purpose, but not available. Sent a message to Dimitar asking if he did these, no answer. Taking that as a no, is there a cost effective way to waterproof the connection? Electrical tape comes to mind. Is a very small mind. Any thoughts?
  23. Below is an example of the device I'm referring to. Will this work if placed between the detector and the headphones or does it only work if placed in front of an amplifier? By 'work' I mean does it attenuate lower frequencies without much effect on the higher frequencies?
  24. i am done with fones with dangling wires that get caught up
