Wireless headphones for Makro Racer 2

Post by 4bleepssake » Mon Nov 26, 2018 1:46 pm

Hi all.
Finally had enough of trailing headphone wires getting in the way, detector pulling my headphones off my head when digging, back filling holes including headphone wire etc....you know the score. Looking at getting some wireless (asking the wife if father christmas can get me some ;) ) but having trouble finding any of the Makro ones anywhere...everybody seems to be sold out/out of stock.
Any ideas anybody for an alternative or any knowledge of the Makro ones being discontinued/replaced etc.... ?
Cheers in advance
Rich

Hello!

I had the same experience when trying to buy some wireless phones for my Racer2. Eventually I bought some Quest/Deteknix phones. I went for the Pro package which included the transmitter.

I bought mine from Detectorbits. Excellent service and Tony there is very helpful & knowledgable.

They were not cheap, but I have found them to be top notch.

I don't know what's happened with Makro - still appears to be a shortage of their headphones.

Hope this helps!

I made a set from wireless gaming headphones, but that is probably not much help!

Thanks for your replies guys, appreciated !

It is strange what's happened with Makro, i'd have thought there would still be stock of the wireless 'phones available but it does look like they are all gone & no longer in production.

Thanks for the advice regarding Quest/Deteknix, i saw those & the Z-link options. My final alternative is to stay wired but go for a coiled option, i hear (excuse the pun) Gray Ghost are great but i'm not sure which model/option would work best with the Makro Racer 2 ?

Thanks once again

Hi, I bought a set from raptors, model 003. Plus a step up adaptor for the transmitter.
Headphones are very light with volume control. No noticeable lag.

Hope this helps ::g
