There have been some momentous events for Minelab. First, the inscription KOSS disappeared from the headphones which now have only ‘Minelab’ letters left. Second, Minelab’s new wireless headphones have become truly wireless, like those made by XP or Garrett. Here comes a new product 2017 – new Minelab headphones.
Minelab’s new wireless headphones have been initially designed for the Minelab Equinox series units. In future, they will work with other metal detectors as well – e.g., through an additional wireless adapter (with any other machine, not only Minelab’s one). But with reference to the Minelab Equinox detectors, these headphones will make connection without any supplements (modules, adaptors, etc.) – only the detector and headphones themselves.
A key feature of wireless headphones for metal detectors is an audio delay. Who wants headphones in which the signal sounds after 3 steps away from the real location of the find? According to the manufacturer, the new headphones have a lag of +40 milliseconds. When these ones are attached to a Minelab WM 08 wireless module, the delay is 15 milliseconds. These are really good values, thus the new headphones are definitely suitable for effective use. By way of example, usual wireless headphones which are connected via Bluetooth have a lag of 150-300 milliseconds.
These are the full size headphones – this means they fully enclose the user’s ears. Can be adjusted to fit any size head. Have a padded headband on a circular arc. There are built-in touch controls on the side of the earcup: On/Off, volume adjustment (‘+’/‘-’buttons).
Plus, the new headphones have a wired option as well. These ones come supplied with a regular cable that can be used to connect the headset and a metal detector. Also, the headphones come complete with a transport and storage case and have an additional mini USB charging cable and a new magnetic connector charger (the Minelab Equinox series devices are equipped with the new type connectors).
All new products 2017 introduced to the metal detecting world are collected here. If you need any info about wireless headphones for a metal detector (different ones), you can find it on the MD-Hunter blog. Happy hunting to everyone!
