My AT PRO Headphone adapter fix

This is the way I fixed my headphone problem.I went to Radio Shack and bought part number 274-141(comes 2 to a pack) In-Line Jack and cut the cord of the supplied headphones and soldered in the In-Line Jack.Works perfect, just plug in what ever brand you like to use. I didn't want to cut the end of the cords of my $100 plus phones. I like to use more than one brand.

Good job. Now instead of letting those Garrett phones with the cut cord, set unused in a closet or drawer, drop back in to Radio Shack and buy a matching plug. Install it on the phone cord, and you can now use them as backup phones with any detector using a standard headphone plug, or (sell them & re-coup a fe bucks). :thumbup:

That would also work for those who want to use their other Garrett coils that are wired for the ACE series that one might already have on hand. Onus

Ace coils will not work as they are a different freq even if you could hook them up.

Did the same with mine same connector but I cut the cord at the headphones so I could mount it back at the arm rest.

Very nice job . I plan on doing the same with mine - bought the 1/4" in-line jacks from radio shack & parts from Garrett to make up 2 water-proof connectors- got wiring diagram for water-proof side ,but I need to know how the 1/4" in-line jack is wired - red , white & black wire - a picture would help - I'm going to cut the head phone cable & install 1/4" in-line jack for the first adaptor . - I'll make 2 more from the parts I got from Garrett

I didn't think the Garrett adaptor was available yet. Do you have part #'s for it, and cost?

Just finished my adaptor so I could use my TDK wireless headphones and one thing I learned in that particular scenario is the AT wants to see a a certain impedance at the HP port before it will shut off the internal speaker, it would appear this value was not matched until I put a resistor across the terminals of the adaptor so everything is working fine now.

Can you or anyone tell me how to wire the red , white & black wires to 1/4"in-line jack.- in-line jack has 3 wire connections- 1 copper connection on one side, 1 connection opposite side & 1 connection in center.

Adaptor is not available yet the plug to make your own is from garrett. Think about $19 is what they told me. I just cut the wire and used the one on the headphones not like I am ever going to use those again. Two times hunting with them and I was done.

Tennrebel, Thanks for the wiring diagram , Very Good Job & easy to read - I'll cut the cord on the supplied headphones long enough to reach the back under the arm rest - solder in the in-line jack - install = DONE Garrett has the 8 parts to build water-proof connector for $19.95 - Garrett didn't have head-phone cable or in-line jack in stock , but Sue said they would have the complete adaptor for sale the middle of January.
