  1. One of the things that always bugged me with the GPX was it didn't have an internal speaker. Once you make a little Lipo battery setup for it the detector becomes a pretty good cordless detector if you use something like the Quest Wirefree setup to give you cordless headphones but if you want a speaker instead of headphone it gets more complicated. The Lipo battery setups generally don't have an amplifier and because you're no longer using the stock Minelab battery with built in Amp you're stuck with headphones or using an aftermarket Amp like the SP01 or B&Z which then ads cords back on
  2. Last year I bought 2 new pairs of Detector Pro Gray Ghost NDT from my local dealer and early this year 1 more pair . I buy them like that to keep me ahead in case they stop making them with all the new machines coming out with their own phones. When I tried 1 early last Month I found that the tones had changed . In the past I have praised these headphones as being brilliant for all Minelab machines , being able to simulate the exact tones the machines make without headphones. When I discovered this I have now decided to take them back to the shop and in the mean time I bought 2 pair
  3. Hi all. Over the last couple of days I've had a complete nightmare trying to pair my ML80 headphones to my Nox 800. So much so that yesterday I had to detect just using the speaker. Had a fairly good day though so it wasn't all bad! Anyway I didn't want to resurrect the two and a half year old thread below and thought I'd post a solution I found today whilst trying to get the damn things to connect. So, after trying all the solutions in the thread below, reading the manual, factory resetting everything and watching various Youtube vids I still couldn't get them to connect to the dete
  4. The Minelab ML-80 headphone is made by another company and sold under other brand names. The Miccus Stealth SR-71 has been a popular alternative. Unfortunately an update has possibly made the latest version of these headphones incompatible with the Minelab Equinox. From this ad: "IMPORTANT NOTE FOR METAL DETECTOR USE: The current SR-71 Bluetooth 5.0 release DOES NOT work with metal detecting equipment. The reviews are citing earlier 4.2 versions of the headphones." This also for the Miccus website: "Are different brands of Bluetooth products compatible? Yes. Bluetooth manufactur
  5. Newbie here,how do I connect the Garrett Z-Lynk to the Equinox 600? Doesn't the WT-1 box of the Z Lynk have to be physically connected to the 600 via adapter cord? I didn't see any such cord on the Minelab site. I just bought this 600 havn't even used it yet but fter reading post from different sources, I think I'm going to hate this thing.
  6. Is there now marketed or has there ever been available a detector which inverts the audio volume scale? Many applications produce better finds from the weaker signals, either because those items are smaller (e.g. micro jewelry) or deeper (e.g. old coins and nuggets). Having to listen through the din of trash to hear the weak signals for most detectors is mentally fatiguing. I wouldn't be surprised if this is/was possible with analog electronics, but seems like a task that digital processing could handle easily(?).
  7. Anyone have input on which of these is better? Plan to do some detecting snorkeling in maybe 6ft of water in Mexico in a couple weeks. Using a Nox 800
  8. Actually Fisher phones are some of the most copied Headphones ever made the oneS that come with the AQ are actually better than Gray ghost in my opinion .....I designed the Timberwolfs and Hurricanes....the drivers piezo that my friend Beechnut uses I used back in the early 90’s onmypersonal Cuda and one very similar on the production Baracuda ....the only difference in the land phones fisher sold had a clipper circuit built into them to protect youR hearing which a lot of copiers including me left out and just used a variable resistor pot on each ear to dial them in ......I have not pul
  9. I love my Minelab wireless headphones for land and beach use with my Nox, but on hot days, they add substantially to my sweat factor. I was wondering if low latency wireless earbuds might be a cooler solution. Has anyone used those and have any recommendations for good quality buds that would work with the Nox? Thanks in advance for any help.
  10. I know you can't take and sP01 in the water but could it be used to any advantage with the AQ? What are your thoughts. I'll ask Pat what he thinks. Mitchel I added this from the manual. Volume Control The Volume control adjusts the loudness of all audio responses. There is a trade-off between a setting high enough to hear a faint deep target, but not so high that a strong shallow target hurts your ears. It is good practice to lower the Volume before turning on the detector, especially if you are already wearing the headphones. Threshold Control The Thre
  11. Just got a set of these shipped in 3 days from Hungary. Perfect impedance match for the N/M detectors--incredible sound. Very clean and sharp --brings my accuracy up a lot. They are so loud they need to be run at 8. I worked with the manufaturer to improve his strain relief system (see the Heyco)--very nice set of phones for these machines. cjc
  12. So I have the Multi Kruzer and the Gold Racer, both use the same green wireless headphones. In the manual says I need a wireless module to connect the headphones to the Gold Kruzer. Problem is the case I have doesn't have a port on the side to plug a wireless module. There is no information on where to buy a module from Nokta for the Racer 2 and Gold Racer. I thought maybe they updated stuff and built in the wireless module but the headphones won't pair up to the Gold Racer. Did they just change the case so these machines can't use wireless headphones, discontinue the module and not updat
  13. I am using the Trond Wireless Transmitter and Receiver and wireless headphones with my GPZ 7000 and am liking it. I have it plugged into my WM 12 and have had no issues. I had a friend try the set up, the only difference on the set up was he had it direct to the headphone jack. He said there was so much EMI, couldn't use it. Does anyone else use this set up and are there any issues? Norm
  14. Have been looking around for some wireless bone conducting headphones. Seems like they'd be good to keep the ears comfortable, especially in warmer months. Anyone seen or used aptX LL models? Got some aftershokz air for a buddy a while back and he loves them but not aptX LL from what I could tell.
  15. As has become common with all modern detector manufacturers, Garrett has a proprietery audio transmitter/receiver system called Z-Lynk. The typical application is a transmitter internal to the detector's control pod and a proprietary (MS-3) headphone. What I'm wondering is if the standalone Z-lynk receiver is compatible with their detectors that have the built-in transmitters. This would be analogous to the Minelab Equiunox WM08 module which allows the user to attach his/her favorite headphones instead of being 'stuck with' the proprietary ML80 headphones. I do see that Garrett sells t
  16. What is the difference between a head phone amp and a signal booster like the B&Z or the Gold Screamer? Will one of these make a difference on the SDC? Thanks. Dean
  17. Hello. Using the forum search didn't bring up a confirmation. So, if this was asked in the past I'm sorry for the repeat. My question is, will the Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk wireless kit work with the MXT or DFX? The manual states compatible with nearly any brand; and from detector pro I know they have a special white's switch build in. Anyone using this setup for his White's detector?
  18. Have any of you fellas been able to use a wireless low latency transmitter with the Sovereign? Something like the Quest Wire Free Mate, Garrett Z-link or Trond? I tried a cheap Chinese one off Amazon but I don't think it could handle the power coming from the headphone jack and it was clipping the the sound really bad. Thanks!
  19. Would a SP01 Enhancer help with beach detecting on the 2200d? Down to our last couple in the store so wondering if I should grab one now or if it would be a waste if I'm not using it on gold. Cheers.
  20. Hi! Hope y'all doing great! So, today i got a package from the USA! I was recommended to get this kit! Can't wait to try it on my GPX 5000!!! Anyone here runs one of these? Best regards
  21. I'm going to try out the new Tek weatherproof headphones with the 8500 They are really designed for use with the armrest headphone jack models like the T2 and F75 but I have an extension cord that allows me to use them with the 8500 These are very nice weather proof Koss models made for 1st Texas. I've had them awhile and I've used them with my F75, Impact and Gold Kruzer, V3 and Etrac. Audio wise I find them to be on par with the White's Prostars. I don't have any problem recommending them and they are reasonably priced. HH Mike https://www.tekneticsdirect.com/pr
  22. Hi all of You! I want to share the first toughts on my new project for a waterproof amplified headphones need... As usual, I'm pissed by a number of things, not to be boring, but at a certain point my patience has a limit and with people legs between my search pattern, swimming at dawn over me...What can I do to relax myself until the summer ends? So I started a long research for a real tiny, cheap and effective amplifier board to install inside the headphones and hopefully to pump decently the audio on my Ctx3030.. I'm probably the last of the tribe that discovered this it
  23. Hi Everyone: I have posted this on another competing forum. I thought I would post it here as well as this forum seems more active. Part of my issue is the poor volume with wired headphone issue I have seen mentioned multiple times but I can live with that and my issues go beyond that.I have had the Simplex for a little over a month. I have the Nokta Makro wired waterproof headphones and while they worked OK for a while (volume had to be on the highest setting to be of much use in the water) they recently quit working altogether. If I am in a silent room I can just barely and I mean barel
  24. I recently tried to find a platinum wedding band with a $1000 reward. I used my NOX with Minelab Waterproof headphones and was not happy at all. The volume Setting at MAX and I could barely hear the signals over the sounds of me breathing underwater and the bubbles from my regulator. I know others have complained in times past, but wanted to get an updated response. What are the best underwater sounding (100% waterproof) headphones for the EQ-800 and that actually stay on your head. That was another problem I had, as the Minelab ones would easily slide off if I made any sudden m
  25. Any good alternatives for an enhancer to run on my 2200? I don't really wanna fork out $250 on an SP01 (not that anywhere can stock them anyway), I'll do $150ish on a booty booster if I really need to but are there any DIY alternatives or Chinese enhancers I could use instead? Cheers.
