Only the testers have seen them, but from the pre-release photos, it looks like this adapter so they should be available. Cant know for sure until they get into the users hands

ETA - this is a Lifeproof case headphone adapter

yea I've been checking around and I even sent a letter to minelab and this is what I got back.


Our headphones come as assembled from the factory, so unfortunately we do not have any separate pieces available through us or our authorized dealers.



Thank you,

Will do.

I have 2 3030's and an excalibur with the 3030 headphone sockets on.

Also 4 sets of headphones with the screw on connector and do not want to loose that investment.

I have spent many an hour trying to find something comparable to the Equinox waterproof headphone connector but to no avail. It is a proprietary connector and my solution is to purchase a few of the equinox adapters when they are available and make a adapter out of them. I already have the CTX/Excal end just patiently awaiting the equinox end. Will post some pics of the completed project when done.

Yes you are right about it being proprietary.

I plan to get a 3030 connector and drill out the centre, insert a 3.5mm jack into that, then use epoxy resin to fix it in place.

You're going to do WHAT?!

Before you get all crazy with your plan, you better pay attention to the detector! The connector on the EQ is NOT the same as on the CTX. I'm also 99% sure that the EQ is using an off the shelf connector I posted above.

Yes I know its not the same.

The threaded portion is however the same.

It has a 3.5mm jack on the middle protruding out.

and of course no other pins on inside.

Trust me :-)

Interesting. That pic looks different from other pics of the WP connector I have seen.
