  1. Does anyone know the thread size of the toggle switches in the detector pro phones? Grey Ghost, Black Widow. I want to order toggle boots for them. I called detector pro and they had no idea on thread size. I know this thread gets lots of eyes. If I get an answer and the mods want to move this to somewhere else, thanks. Dave
  2. Hello I am from France where we are lucky, cause I have received my Simplex 1 month ago. My question is : is there a wireless headphone, not from NOKTA, working for SIMPLEX ? Now, there are 5 NOKTA Headphones. Green, blue, red and black and waterproof...
  3. Has anyone tried the Ausdom AH3 Apt-x low latency head phones. I just got them for my Equinox 600 and they paired right up with low latency. I then took them to a fairground that I have partially searched. My coin count was way down while using them. I will check them in my coin garden tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone else has tried them and their opinion. Malcolm
  4. 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
  5. I looked all through the Equinox tips here and didn't find anything that addresses this. I was detecting using wireless bluetooth earbuds that have worked fine for months. I walked out of range for a few minutes and when I came back the detector was running, the headphone symbol was showing on the control panel but there was no sound coming to the earbuds. I turned the detector off, turned the headphones off. Then turned the detector back on, the detector was working I could hear it, then turned the earbuds back on, the headphone symbol showed, the sound disappeared from the Equinox speaker but would not come through on the earbuds and it was the same thing when I repeated the sequence with wireless headphones that came with the detector. I also did resets on the headphones, re-paired with the detector - but the same thing happened. Any advice/help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  6. I'm looking at the B&Z audio enhancer for the GPX, the one like JP uses. Is anyone using a B&Z and what do you think about it?
  7. Hi i'm wondering if anyone has a metal detector headphone jack adapter that they could send me ? just send me a PM and ill give you my address thanks .
  8. I've read some things here that confused me, and I checked them out today, finding the source of the confusion. Sunray makes two sets of Pro Gold headphones: the 'Originals' and the 'CTX version'. I have the former. I've read that you need the CTX version if you want to use them with the Equinox. (As always, maybe I didn't read the fine print.) When I plug my 'Originals' (via a 1/4" female to 3.5 mm male adapter) into the back side of the control module it's as if they aren't connected at all. Nothing comes through the headphones and the Equinox speaker emits its normal sounds. Presumably this is what has been reported here. However, using the WM-08 wireless module (connected to the headphones with the same adapter) the speaker is bypassed and the sound in the headphones is loud and clear. In fact it is noticeably louder than with the Garrett MS-2 headphones. Although I didn't check my White's ProStars, in the past they performed similarly to the MS-2's. The sound quality doesn't seem quite as clean but the Pro Golds certainly have enough sound quality to work well in the field. I wonder if the volume difference has to do with impedence matching. Anyway, bottom line is don't throw out your Original Pro Golds if you have converted to an Equinox user.
  9. I was about to pull the trigger on these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VD3M6M3/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza when I read that they are supposed to pair to a device separately. I might be misunderstanding, but it sounded like you would have two earbuds paired separately and work together, or is it one earbud paired to the device and the other earbud connected to the first earbud? I wasn't sure if the Equinox would simultaneously connect to two devices this way. Anyone have any experience with this type of earbud?
  10. Something to watch out for.... Went to charge my headphones recently but couldn't get the status LED lights to show red charging , no matter what I tried just couldn't get a light. Changed cords and chargers but to no avail. About to ring my dealer about a replacement, with thoughts of "Knowing my luck ,I bet you don't have stock etc etc " when.......upon reading the manual pg 56... I realized that I was looking at the lefthand earpiece status LEDs and not the righthand Status LEDs. .. Duh!! . The righthand earpiece LEDS are the only ones "activated". Both earpieces(left and right) have LEDs or provision for and whilst the mini usb plugs into the left hand earpiece you need to check right hand earpiece for status. All good now, I'm a Happy Chappie once again.
  11. 1st of all I have tried the factory reset and that hasn't helped. The headphones are fully charged. When I try to turn them on sometimes I get a continuous flashing red light. Now when I am trying it I am getting red and blue lights flashing simultaneously. I get no sound from them except when I turn them off I hear them shut down.. Not sure what to do I sure hate to send them back to Minelab
  12. My old headphones got all beat up over the summer plowing through the woods so I snagged a pair of Garrett Stow Aways for my Tejon. I was really surprised how good the audio really is on them. They do fit a little tight and are smaller but have a really great range of sound. Now I need to re-learn my sounds. Anyways I didn't spend much time out, maybe half hour or so and left the 10x12 coil which kills me in trashy areas but I did get a nice smooth hit on this little 18k rose gold ear ring with a few diamond chips 0.7g. Was only inch or so deep nothing to brag about.
  13. anyone know if these are good detecting headphones https://www.fleetfarm.com/detail/bounty-hunter-stereo-headphones/0000000203051?Ntt=metal+detecting+headphones&_requestid=2321948 or do you know of a cheap pair that are good thanks
  14. I think it would be a good idea to have a thread just for after maket Bluetooth headphones for the Equinox as there must be many many different ones out there if people could give their views on what they have bought and what improvement they have over the ML80's. I have bought these https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01A0EAYDI/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1 advantage over ML80's much better low tones (no boom sound) better overall tones (tighter) they are super comfortable and have much larger ear muffs the head band fit is great if you have a larger head they are slightly lower in volume but not by much than the ML80's.
  15. I purchased an Equinox 600, 6" coil and 1/8th to 1/4th adapter. It arrived on 08/19/2019. The detector worked without headphones. It worked with the wired headphones that came with it, the headphone icon appearing on the screen. When I attempted to use the 1/8th to 1/4 Minelab adapter, that I also ordered to allow me to use my Sun Ray headphones, things went wrong. Machine was fine, but with the adapter in place, my headphones were dead. The speaker on the unit still worked. The headphone icon on the screen did not appear. I re-attached the adapter several times with the same result. There was a problem somewhere. Things happen. It probably was nothing big. I called Minelab America, expecting another adapter would be sent, or ____? Minelab didn't answer, just a recording informing me my call might be recorded. I left a message. Later that day I called again. Same recording. I did not leave a message. I did not leave a message the two times I called the next day, when the recording was still answering my call. I called the dealer and he was, and still is, very responsive. He provided the email for Minelab service and maintained contact with me. I emailed Minelab about my problem on 08/20/2019. I made four calls to Minelab America and never reached a human. I left a voice-mail message with my contact info, no response. There has been no reply to my email. Though the Equinox may be a fine machine, I can live without it and it will be a long time before I consider another machine from them. I qualify for the Veterans discount, which made for a great price and was considering purchasing one for my girlfriend. The machine was sent back.
  16. Apparently, my wireless pairing button does not work... I have tried every combination to get the thing to show...but, it won't. Detector on... WM on wm rapid blink on PUSH the wireless, water-proof button-NOTHING several Factory resets done also.... The trouble shooting guide says to ….CONFIRM the wireless setting is set to on"...??? where is this setting? FRED
  17. Rather than wait for the official waterproof Headphone Adaptor Cable 3.5mm (1/8-inch) to 6.35mm (1/4-inch) lead i made my own with a 1/8" Male To 1/4" Female Headphone Lead and the WM08 blanking screw that comes with the unit i just drilled the blanking screw out and glued the 3.5 (1/8) end in then used a silicone washer for a watertight seal easy.
  18. I finally got round to replacing the battery in my dud WM12. I run twin WM12`s and the good one would charge in about 1 hour but the sluggish one could take 5 or 6 hours or longer. I`m not real good with the fiddly little stuff but this was pretty straight forward and now both wm12`s charge in the same amount of time. The only 2 things that may be drama, you need a bit that fits TT10 Torx screws and somehow I had one of those, and the battery I bought the black and red wire were about ½" too long and I had to bend the wires a bit to get the plug to go into the socket. The top picture is how the red and black wire looked before and the bottom picture is after I fitted the new battery. You can see I had to bend the wires. And don`t believe you`ll get it in three or 4 days. This mob is in England and it took about 3 or 4 weeks to get mine.. If you get this battery from these people the model No. is CS-MLC100SL and the part No. is 0303-0036 Good luck finding the battery anywhere else, this was the only one I could find. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Replacement-Battery-For-MINELAB-0303-0036/302942371755?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  19. My Equinox has been under the water at least 40 hours before this happened! The first thing that I noticed was interference, like the cell phone being too close... then she just went dead!! Bummer! And for anyone thinking about getting the Minelab waterproof headphones? Put on your headphones, turn the volume on your machine down to somewhere around 14 and see if you'd like to hunt like that? That's how low the sound is on the Minelab waterproof headphones! Surely the waterproof headphones were an afterthought for Minelab because I don't think you could hear them if you were under water breathing through a hookah or air tanks! I'm not sure but maybe they can come up with a download that will help with the volume! I'm just waiting for Minelab to get back to me so I can send it in..... Other than all the little and now an end of days problem........ I love this machine! I have over an ounce of gold jewelry that I have pulled off one beach in about 70 hrs of detecting!
  20. Does anyone know if an 800 will connect to a phone or any other Bluetooth app or device that records video or audio? It sure would be interesting to record directly from the detector. I guess the best way is the old way of just putting the sound on the detector speaker and then capture the event that way. Mitchel
  21. Just FYI.....On 8 Sep, I posted my review of the LS Pelso waterproof headphones for the Equinox...link below I waited to get my own however until the new version with the longer cable was delivered to Kellyco. They came in this past week and I immediately picked up a set and tried them in my test garden and backyard. I was honestly hearing more tones and more clearly than ever. The volume was much more than adequate. They fit over my hat better than others I've used and were very comfortable as I stated in that initial review. The extended cable made a world of difference as they have a 24" straight section that connects to the control box and can be routed and attached under the detector shaft all the way to the shaft's back end where the coiled section begins....a big improvement! My first impression of these headphones was not only confirmed but enhanced...so much so that I picked up a second set for use on my CTX 3030! Kellyco now can supply these headphones for multiple detectors: Equinox: https://www.kellycodetectors.com/catalog/ls-pelso-underwater-headphones-with-long-cable CTX 3030: https://www.kellycodetectors.com/catalog/underwater-headphones-compatible-with-ctx-3030 Kruzer: https://www.kellycodetectors.com/catalog/underwater-headphones-kruzer Disclaimer: I am not an employee of Kellyco nor am I under any obligation to Kellyco for these reviews. My sole purpose is to share my experience with our metal detecting community.
  22. After spotty performance from the included wireless headphones, I took Steve’s suggestion and picked up a pair of Sunray CTX Pro Gold head phones. I connected them to the WM08 module using the ML Nox adapter pig tail. The difference in audio performance between the Pro Golds and wireless headphones is night and day. I had a lot of connection issues with the included wireless headphones, when they did connect, audio through them wasn’t much of an improvement over just using the speaker. After 20yrs in the Army, my hearing sucks. I had a difficult time hearing that “disturbance in the force” pause in the threshold you sometimes get from a tiny nugget. The WM08 has worked absolutely flawlessly, instantly connects when powered on. If you only use the WM08, I don’t think the “CTX” version of the Pro Golds are necessary as the speaker shuts off regardless of which of the three modes is selected. I am currently using the official ML adapter pig tail to connect them together, but they work equally as well with a cheap eBay adapter. I am blown away by how much more I can hear, it’s a completely new detecting experience for me. I have used, ear buds, Grey Ghost water proof headphones, stock wireless head phones and now the Pro Golds. To my ears, and for the type of detecting I do the Pro Golds just blow everything else away.
  23. I’m waiting for my Anfibio multi to arrive and was curious if anyone has tried wireless earbuds with the Nokta detectors, I have an equinox 600 and use them sometimes, also an Avantree clip on transmitter with my Tony Eisenhower Waterproof headphones, it’s nice to have options, would also like to make an adapter so I can use Tony’s headphones underwater with the Anfibio.
  24. Hi looking at buying some Bluetooth ear buds, I hate the large cans. I have read the 600 still has Bluetooth. And to get good lag earphones. Iwas reading about Aptx. Am I going down the right track. Thanks
  25. I'm a former XP Deus user and have been searching around for aptX LL headphones similar to my old Deus WS4 wireless backphones so that I can wear sunhats. I purchased the 66 AUDIO BTS Pro's last week and was pretty disappointed after syncing them up to the Equinox 800 and no aptX LL!!! I contacted their tech support and didn't hear anything for a couple of days. I boxed them up to return to Amazon and just as I was heading out the door to the UPS Store I received an email from them saying "We will send over a manual firmware update in 1-2 days to resolve the aptX-LL issue." Two days later (today) I got the firmware update. The update went smoothly on my PC, I synced up to the Equinox 800 and aptX LL now works GREAT!!! I tested them out around my garden and they're awesome. If anyone needs the firmware update file without having to wait four days send me a PM. These headphones sound great, loud, are comfortable and have some pretty impressive specs with a 40 hour battery and 100 foot range. https://www.66audio.com/bts-pro https://www.amazon.com/66-AUDIO-Wireless-Bluetooth-Headphones/dp/B01M8M4R7K
