It looks as if it is a mobile phone stuck on a stick, is this the detector that woody was mentioning? In one of his YouTube videos he was saying not to sell old Minelab coils as there is going to be a large demand for the old coils.

He also talks about other detectors coming out.  Around the 6:38 mark.

one of the reasons I don't like headphones is because they make it harder to hear what's going on around me.  

To me that is the bonus of headphones. It locks you in to what your detector is telling you with little to no outside noise influence. Like detecting in a strong wind or close to a busy road, or beside a running creek. Just focusing on the feedback from the detector & those extremely faint on the edge of detection hic-cups in the threshold.

In NZ you don't have to worry about a bear or a bigfoot or anything else making a charge at you. What is it you would need to be hearing going on around you? A wild pig maybe but then you wouldn't really be detecting in that type of terrain & vegetation.

Damn, I thought he must have one and was going to show it in action, all I got was a guy sitting in his car waffling at the website.

Yea so did I.  I did find it interesting that he mentions other detectors in the works.

Yes, Algoforce intend to stick around, and will have other models in the future.  Generally, once a product hits the market, other than firmware updates to enhance the existing model all efforts then go onto the next model.  They won't be sitting around twiddling their thumbs, I got the impression from talking to them they'll be working hard on continuing their efforts to bring other great well priced detectors to market.

   If Simon is like most of us, the biggest animal to "fear" Is man!! We are our own worst enemy! There was a thread on here not too long ago about just that!

   Also, Simon has posted pics of some of his terrain, which is some pretty steep, and remote stuff in the mountains! I'm sure he wants to hear falling rocks, etc..! But other than those two he has little else to fear! But mostly, he hates wearing headphones! 

  I have studied the "Simon" in its natural habit for several years, via the forum; interesting animal! He has learned to store dozens of electronic devices in his backyard den, as the female of the species demands the main den be clutter free!! ????

I hope you can turn off the microphone option off? I havent bothered to study the instruction manual too heavily but I would expect so? My many years as a full-time professional prospector taught me very quickly NOT to use speakers at any time. The habits I gained from the 80's and 90's have continued to this day. Plus in all my years of detecting, the only times Ive seen snakes is when they're going in the opposite direction to me...except that one time ?  My years spent in the military gave me a solid sense of spacial awareness so that its a very rare thing for anyone to be in my vicinity without me being aware. If I do decide to try an E1500, it will definitely be with a wireless headphone setup.
