Going wire free !!

Post by Macroman » Sun Jul 29, 2018 7:29 pm

Hi to all,
I'm still loving and using my original MAKRO RACER (RED)...but I'm contemplating doing away with the dangling curly cable of headphones.
I'm aware that Makro brought out a "dongle" for my machine but it was proven to be not so successful.
So, I'm open to suggestions as to what wire free headphones would be a recommendation for my machine.
Also, anyone using the wire free headphones on a racer (red).. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
Many thanks for reading...and as always...good hunting...👍

The Garrett Z-Link system looks good. Well made and long battery life. They seem to do a very good job from the reports I have seen.

I have no idea whether the Z-lynk works with the Racer, but as Max says above it is a very nice piece of kit. I used it with my 400i and wouldn't have been without it. ::g

I'm using these for now.





I find the OK, perhaps a slight delay so once a target is located you may have to slow the swing a tad to pinpoint.

Claims to work on any headphone output.

Just ordered Garrett Zlynk, the one with the transmitter and wireless headphones but if you have good phones they do a wireless kit they can plug into. Both systems compatible with standard 1/4 inch jack plug or the smaller one with adapter.
Reviews look good and recommended here, (thanks chip!)

I'll post review of them after a bit.
