Equinox Headphones

My new Equinox has arrived and I am in the process of setting it up for detecting. I would like to, at least initially, use the WM 08 Wireless Module, but the ML 80 headphone attachment cable (to connect the headphones with the WM 08 module) plugs into the very bottom of the ML 80 headphones, and I suspect would fall out or disengage with use. Also, why use the expensive wireless headphones when you are not even using the wireless function of the headphones. Therefore, does anyone know where I can purchase a good set of wired headphones with a 1/8 inch plug that will insert into the WM 08 Wireless Module? I would like a set with good sound, a relatively light, straight cord (rather than coiled) with a 1/8 inch straight plug on the end (not a 90 degree plug) that will plug into the wireless module. Any suggestions??

Minelab has an adapter cable that will be available soon that goes from the 1/8" equinox plug to a 1/4" female straight plug so you can use aftermarket headphones. Most metal detecting headphones have a 1/4" plug. But some aftermarket headphones are plug specific like on the CTX 3030, Equinox or the Garrett AT series detectors to maintain their waterproofness.

I have seen some custom built adapter cable for the equinox on @#$%&. If you want to use a headphone with a 1/8" plug, then you can just buy a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter to plug into the adapter cable.

Why dont you just use wireless headphones and eliminate module completely????

The NOX 600 comes with that type of headset pretty much same looking as the wireless ones but wired with the 1/8 in plug straight on the end of the cord. Would be great to use with the WM08 module.
. I'm trying to find a place where I can buy a set to have to use too. Don't hurt to have options. I have the 800 and it only comes with the wireless headset.

My understanding is the wireless module improves the latency so I zipped tied it to the headphones as I didn't like dealing with the cord.

I like the XP FX-02 wired lightweight headphones. They have great sound and straight cable with 1/8 " plug. Cheap also at about $20.
