Post by Rivers rat » Tue Dec 04, 2018 4:53 pm

Hello to al la friend of mine is looking for Equinox waterproof earphones as he lives in the Lovely island of Martinique(French Caribbean),he has intrusted me to find him a pair in the UK to ship over there.



My question is there such a thing as a waterproof earphones for the Equinox his aim I guess in to wader and be discreet rather than wearing big headphones .


Thanks

Hi Mate

It will really depend upon how your mate detects.

If he wants to be discrete then any pair of low latency waterproof bluetooth buds with a volume control will do the job as long as the detector control unit is not being submerged. The exact pair that he needs will largely depend upon his sound preference and you will have a hard job guessing that.

If he wants to submerge the control unit then you are stuck with the ear defender type Minelab waterproof headphones although I think that Grey Ghost now have a version out and I believe that others are also in the offing. Be aware that the Minelabs ones don't have a volume control and are reputed not to be very loud so this may cause issues for some people. the Grey Ghost ones apparently do.

Lots of examples of people using Noxes underwater on YouTube.

How is your PI doing? Up to your neck in gold yet? :D

Cheers

Have bought minelabs waterproof headphones volume does seem to low for my liking at first but after going into the advanced settings on the 800 and adjusting the pitch tones to 19 they are now loud enough for me I like them. They are very comfortable cant wear them over the top of my fleece beanie cap though like I do when using other headphones because they end up amplifying the sounds of rubbing on my beanie ha ha.
