why does the 800 come with headphones and WM8?

I see in the brochure that the 800 has bluetooth headphones and the WM8. If the wireless headphones come with it why would we want the WM8? Just in case we don't like the supplied headphones?

I for one will not use the wireless headphones, but, my own. I use a Periscope probe and need wired phones and a cable to the WM8. During summer, I'd like to use bluetooth earbuds because of the heat. It's a nice option for Minelab to supply both.

So do we "assume" the WM8 is like Garretts Zlink? and the builtin wireless is just bluetooth?

No, the wi-streaming tech is different in the WM-8 than the bluetooth headphones.
