  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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 und
  13. Hi guys, I've just received my Simplex+ 2.77 (coming from a Teknetics T2). I connected my wired headphones and immediately noticed that volume is very poor. At L1 level I can't hear anything; at L2 a little bit more... and so on... To have a decent volume I have to rise to max (H4), just to operate in a quite environment. Wrong headhones? Keep in mind that: I use a jack adapter (6.3 to 3.5) Headphone are some Philips wired model (nothing special) They have no volume control All cables are well plugged in Simplex speaker plays loud as expect
  14. Made a sound reflector to derect the sound back to my ears rather than away, worked good . sometimes i just dont like to use headphones. so this is a nice improvment . Something else i discovered was about the disc. Its normal setting is 6.5. but i turned it to 0 and the nails sound like good targets so i started upping the disc and at 2.00 the nails gave a nice crackle like on the old beep dig machines like the tesoroes but if you hit a nickle the sound was clear and better yet if you hit a high conductor it gave a nice high tone . still liking the ORX nice little machine
  15. Hi Jeff. Did you have some testing time with your new Spectra? How do you like the SpectraSound WHP? I do like them a lot since I use them.
  16. Is there any wireless headphones on the market that support aptx low latency codec and can take a rain shower or a splash of water? If not, someone needs to make them.
  17. 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
  18. Detecting started out as an audio-only hobby, and for us prospectors it mostly remains that way. Even if you are just swinging a VLF you can't trust the VDI numbers in hot ground. Beep, beep, dig. Now the more experienced detectorists know that there is a lot more to audio signals than just beeps. There is shape, tone, volume, sharpness, rhythm. It becomes a musical performance that we get to decode with our brains to decide whether a target is worth busting out the pick for. Why have detector companies not put more emphasis on developing audio responses? We get screens, target ID's, GPS,
  19. These say over the ear and noise cancel. My Minelabs are working just fine but ...

  20. This almost seems like a stupid question but I have to ask. Does anyone wear their Hearing Aids with Headphones? Thanks! Walt
  21. Is there any one set of wireless headphones that most people feel work good on the Equinox? My WM 08 and furnished headphones have both failed, I need some alternatives. Norm
  22. As some of you may know I am almost completely deaf and cannot manage without my hearing aids and a while back I bought a couple of Phonak FM Receiver shoes for use with my Phonak Hearing Aids and I later bought a Phonak Roger FM wireless transmitter so as to hear music and TV wireless direct to my hearing aids. Today I took it into my head to try connecting my Minelab Equinox WM08 wireless unit with my Phonak Roger FM transmitter and I then paired the WM08 unit with my Equinox then paired the Phonak Wireless transmitter with my Phonak Hearing Aids and low and behold the Equinox signals came
  23. Sometimes the pinpoint audio on my 800 is very low. It will recover after pinpoint button is pushed again. Is this normal? Also is there a trick to pairing earbuds to the unit. Thanx. Danny
  24. I am not a headphone guy , dont like wearing them dont like the fact that i cant hear whats going on around me , but i tried out the wireless headphone on the ORX, and was amazed at how nice they are and simple and yet i can hear my suroundings and i dont get all sweaty, and the sound is great , and if you really want a cool sound keep the speeker on and the headphones it sounds like suround sound stereo sound . you hear the lows clearly , and hear i figured they may have been a cheep joke, but now that i have used them i give them a A+
  25. In all the research I've done so far, the 2 waterproof headphones that get mentioned the most as the "best" options for underwater with the Equinox are the Patriot Headphones (http://metaldetecting.com/en/patriot-equinox-water-weq) and the Tony Eisenhower's Headphones. Has anyone actually used both and can accurately compare the 2 models? I'm talking in terms of volume underwater and comfort.
