If anyone has done this change I could use a little enlightenment. I have new underwater GG headphones and blue headphone Excalibur.
Thanks much,
Cal

Thanks Daniel A.
I think that I have it figured out now. I just need to find some sort of connector to marry the two.

How do you do it? Care to share? Are you cutting the headphone wires and splicing?

I just cut and spliced. Not real happy with the sound though.

the wires are the big thing, make sure you got the white and black wire,and hitch up each one of them to the right post.like the white to the left and black to the right. and test them first before closing.

Do you mean the left and right post inside the Ikelite connector?

On my older Excaliburs In order to get the Ikelite connector, what I did was get a battery pod. I ordered the Grey Ghosts with the Ikelite male connector. I then took out the headphone cap on the control pod and wired up the 2 prong female connector from the battery pod so that I could use the Grey Ghost male connector. You have to notch the Ikelite connector from the battery pod to fit the control circuit board. The end caps supports the circuit board in that notch.

The Grey Ghosts have adjustable impedance so you should read the directions as to how to change impedance. I found that if the impedance is wrong, you will get a muffled weak sound. Switching wires is how it is done....it has been a while so I don't remember the details. But it is very easy to do and is mentioned in their instructions.

I recently got a new Excalibur II and got rid of the stock yellow headphones. I used the speakers and put them in a pair of @#$%& Optima 98's. I now have headphones that are waterproof, removes most exterior noise and fits really comfortable. It has a richer sound to it than the old factory Koss shells. I wish I would have known about that when I did the Grey Ghosts. I like the Koss / @#$%& headphones way better than any other headphones I have tried in the past.
