Buy a pair of Gray Ghost Ultimate headphones and I think it will solve your hearing problems.
They are the best sounding headphones I ever used. They don't sound "tinny" like KillerB's and Sunray Golds...I prefer more bass the Gray Ghosts provide.

I have owned both the Deleon and the Cortes and the Vaquero. The meters are small on the Deleon and Cortes and hard to see if your eyes aren't the best.
Lots of people love them and make some good finds with them, but I would take the Vaquero any day over them for the better depth it provides. Good luck with whatever you decide on.

For Clad & Jewelry at my Sports fields & tot lots, My Deleon Went 6-7 inch's which was plenty deep.

what I really liked about The Deleon over The Vaquero, was the on The fly depth reading, it was very accurate, which really helps on recovery.

The numbers and everything else about the screen is easier to read than the Cortes. Tesoro even states this on Deleon info on their site.
One would have to be almost blind not to be happy with the DeLeon screen.
I love mine.
The only thing better might be VID on a Vaquero. A new detector called a DeVaq

So you were under the lights?

Stefan, 1.30 in a such a small area was pretty daggum good.
Life is sweet with a DeLeon by your side.

Bring out the night-vision. Then you'd be in a true, stealth mode.
