Thank you so much for all your information!I use the Grey Ghosts on my Fishers. As long as they are adjusted to fit directly over the ears they block wind and traffic noises wonderfully. Just remember to adjust up or down to compensate for headwear.
I run the volume max on the detector and adjust volume down on the headphones to meet conditions at the time.
I have an additional question; I did get the hornets from killer B but you have to put an adapter in to make headphones work as they aren’t quite long enough; do they make them specific to fit the 3030 or does everyone use the adapter? Or what other headphones fit exactly without having to do an adapter.You’ll likely get a lot of answers. A company called “Killer B“ makes a set of headphones called “Hornets”. Incredible headphones, they’re all I’ve used with the CTX. They make other models which people like quite a bit, as well as a single sided model called the “Stinger”. Another brand is “Sunray” who make a model of headphone called the “Pro Gold”. Again, some variations available, all of which seem to be popular. Both of these brands are very “detector specific”....built to be in that environment. Rumor has it that BOTH of these brands are actually built by the same manufacturer, but I have no way of confirming that.
Yet a third brand is “Grey Ghost”, and I mention them because their design is a “tank” style, just like the Killer B Hornet. These cover the ear completely and totally, and seem to be the best or close to it for cutting out surrounding noise. Have a look around the net for these brands and pricing.
I was confused about the headphones that I had purchased; I didn’t know certain Headphones went with certain detectors and some do not without that adapter that changes the wiring. Sorry to have bothered you. Ill be calling the company I got the earphones from and maybe they have the kind that works with the 3030. What was sent works with another detector I have without the extra pen.....constantly learning. Thank you!Of what "adapter" do you speak??
There's the (included) Minelab adapter that attaches to the back to allow 1/4" HPs to plug in.
There's a 1/4" stereo/mono adapter sometimes needed to hear audio in both ears. (Usually w/older phones.)
There are extension adapters to increase the cord length.
If it's the later, you can (carefully!) stretch the coiled headphone cable to lengthen it.
Be sure to grasp/support both ends as you stretch, so as to not pull the wiring out of the connector or phones....don't just pull away!
(Those of us born about a million years ago may remember having to do this with the coiled landline telephone cords, to lengthen them.)
You can, of course, get a really long connection by just plugging the phones into the wireless adapter.
