800 headphone jack

Wanted to try my own headphones, purchased a 3.5mm jack adapter at Best buy but detector won't recognize plug. The jack clearly seats all the way down. My regular earbuds work fine. Anybody found something to work or are we forced to wait for minelab acc. Thanks

It would be nice to get the pinouts like when did on the CTX so we could build our own again.

When they are available and delivered to the dealers I pray that they are supplied more than one at a time to the dealers.

Pinout and availability of part could help many of us. I saw a right angle connector, but hit had several pins, might get one and see if I can modify it.
I will need to do something to go beyond the 3 foot water mark. aggravating that a simple adapter cable could not be available at the same time the detectors are being sent out. Same goes for the waterproof headphones and coils.

This is MLs for the CTX........ someone said they believed the EQ uses the same.

By the pictures of the waterproof headphones and adapter cable, both yet to be made available, have STEREO plugs.
Wiring is another story, not having parts I can not test.

Did you get a stereo adapter? That's what you need.

I would thought it would be standard wiring as it takes normal headphones.

Ie tip and second ring for channels and main lower body ground.

That should work. The CTX3030 have two ways to wire the headphones in, i.e. mono and stereo. But remember the Equinox must be wired to sense their presence and turn OFF the speaker.

most of these type of sockets have a mechanical switch to cut off the speaker as the plug is inserted into the hole.

Not so with the CTX-3030 and other brands. Not positive about the Equinox. With it being wireless I am thinking it will be the same.

See this also shows headphone wiring for the CTX , nothing official for the Equinox yet that I have seen:

The 3030 uses a weird setup.

Hopefully the eq is a much simpler arrangement.

I got my 800 yesterday and played around with it a bit and tried different adapters with no luck, but still had my set up I used on the CTX for my headphones, but had to use the 1/4 to 1/8 inch adapter which had the 90 Degree plug on it and it worked good.
I built this adapter for my CTX following the diagram that Minelab posted with the correct pattern of wires. One thing being I am hard of hearing I didnt notice if there was sound from the Nox with the plug for the headphones was plugged in.
