WS5 headphone case

Post by Larfin boy » Sat Jun 07, 2014 1:35 pm

Hi all, has anyone found a hard case suitable for the XP WS5 headphones, I've trawled through countless ebay pages and I can't find anything that fits the bill yet !!

PS A big thank you to the fellow member (can't remember who it was now ! ) who recommended the ebay item :151124161114 padded carry case at £17.99, which is the "dogs wotsits" for protecting the XP Deus whilst in transit, it also accommodates the 13" coil.

Yes good point, these headphones do need looking after and would be nice to have a case to pack them away safely, I am surprised there is not a case with them :-/

Really surprised that XP does not have a bag for this expensive piece of kit.
This is the best I can find, but not sure if it will fit the WS5's.

I would have bought this case if I knew they would fit, it looks a hard case as well...

We just need somebody to buy them first to check.. :D

Hi Larfin boy,

Not sure how 'posh' you want your hard case for your WS5 headphones?

But I bought one of these and it works fine.....

Having said that I only carry them from the house to the car then on to the fields and then back to the car :D

I have the WS4 back phones for the Deus and they came with a hard plastic case from XP. Does XP not supply a case with the WS5 headphones?

To carry and protect the detector and its accessories, I use a backpack. The Deus fits inside the main compartment and in the top pouch I have a Garrett finds bag. Inside that finds bag I keep my back phones (in their case), charger and remote control (in its holder). In the bottom section of the backpack, I keep a pinpoint probe and another finds bag (for actual finds).

In the side compartments, I keep spare batteries and the emergency charger.

It has worked well so far in the field and the backpack is light enough to carry for hours while detecting. It has hip and chest straps to make it even easier to carry.

Hi Gez,

It's an 80 litre backpack. But you might get away with a smaller one if you have the 9" coil. I use a backpack that size so I can fit the 11x13" coil.
