With the wrong adaptor or an adaptor that Minelab does not approve could leak and destroy your machine along with your warranty. Be sure and ask the right questions. All electronic parts made for Minelab are made in Australia by Minelab. I myself would not use a chinese or other off brand connector on my machine that is under warranty. To each his or her own. JMHO. HH :minelab:

Good point and one that will be considered when I recieve it. Im pretty sure that the connection on the machine is already waterproof though if I'm not mistaken. The adaptor would be so the GG's would work on the machine?? Guess we'll find out.

The CTX 3030 is made in Malaysia so Chinese parts may juse be better.

Question. The Koss water proof headphones can be completely submerged correct? Can the GG's be completely submerged or is it just the plug that is water proof?

Both brands can be submerged completely

Headphone Socket is waterproof... Cap is to keep out sand and dirt

Looks like the socket is waterproof and the cap is just to keep out sand and dirt. Not to waterproof the socket. So cant see an issue with using other headphones.

"Waterproof headphones connector

The waterproof headphones connector is an eight pin socket at the back
of the CTX 3030

That is why you do testing........

HMMMMM, Since most head phone manufacturers shun modifications to their headphones and void their own warranties we as a dealer go the extra mile. We step up to the plate since we have our own repair shop for detectors , headphones etc. we find it absolutely no problem to warrant our work and the actual headphone , detector etc. This Gives OUR customers peace of mind buying from a dealer that does in house repairs. This is how we are able to provide a 5 year warranty on Minelab Detectors with the exclusion of the Excall II (2yr ). repairs are only offered to customers who buy from us.
I honestly can care less about any other dealer wanting to be the first to have connectors, being authorized or charge more because they think they think they had special connectors manufactured for them. If it makes them feel good about themselves and they need that pat on the back more power to them, I can care less though. Customers who buy from us will get them FREE with our many different packages. Matter of fact we may even give the connectors away for FREE when we relaunch our website. (Customers will have to pay a small shipping charge). We have 125 pieces, I wouldn't mind making 125 happy customers. Unlike other dealers I am not fueled by making a buck. These are very common connectors not that difficult to find, days after the CTX was made aware to dealers we already purchased the connectors and had them in stock May18th. Heck I may even post several vendors we use and post the wiring diagram and installation instructions.





We have the correct connector as well......
