  • How much for this underwater headphones ? Link ? Thanks

  • I have tried Miccus SR71 (Bluetooth v5.0) and now Trond v4.2, and neither will connect to my brand new Nox 600 as of 9/12/2019. I have a friend that has Nox 600 and SR71 headphones, but they are a few months old and must be v4.1. I was able to pair those to my nox, as well as an old pair of v4.1 earbuds. I suspect the Minelab branded version are v4.1. I spoke to a Minelab customer support fellow yesterday asking about the shortcomings of the Nox not connecting to Bluetooth v5.0. He acted semi-surprised, spieling off the BT chipset number and how they research aftermarket phones too. I asked if my query was the first time he’s heard v5.0 would not pair. He said there has been a small swirl of chatter, but nothing major. He said he has opened a ticket for the engineer’s and was going to push it up the chain.
    The problem is I am seeing folks posting they have newer headphones and are paring successfully. I just don’t know what to think. I hate to drop $140 on MineLab branded headphones, but that should guarantee my luck. :-)

    • I have the nox 600 and bought the Micus SR71 headphones. The problem is they take forever to pair, but they do pair eventually. Paid $60.00 on line, but you have to be patient

    • All the new miccus headphones are 5.0. Minelab has not upgraded to to 5.0. Incompatible

      • Not true…There are people using BT 5.0 Anker Earbuds.. They’re not APTx, but they pair.. I have a set of Atomicx W203 and they won’t pair. This sucks.. Minelab should release the exact necessary specs needed for alt headphones..

    • I was told the Trond 4.2 should pair with the nox 600 with no problem. I was about to buy a pair when I read your post. My information is that the Minelab are BT 4.2.
      It’s driving me crazy. I bought a new pair of Miccus SR 71. They will not pair because they are
      BT 5.0 and Minelab is BT 4.2

  • what ever happen with yours? Im haveing the same issue.

  • Help my Miccus earphones wont connect to my Nox 600 but cheap sleep earphones connect but the latency is too slow to use for detecting

  • Can Simplex headphones (green) be paired Equinox?

  • I have a brand new nox600 and they wouldn’t pair with my cheap bluetooth headphones so I’ve just splashed out ?50 on Tronds after reading they will work and they are not pairing ?

  • I am having the same problem with the miccus sr 71 headphones not pairing with my nox 600. It might take 12 or 15 tries before it will connect. Are their any plans to update the nox if the versions are incompatible? If not, where can I get an older bt version to use?

  • I bought the soundpeats q12 hd wireless earbuds.they do pair with my nox 800 but i can hear no sound.
    Does anyone have this problem?

  • I have both the aukey b80 earbuds aptx ll. It wil not connect because it’s bluetooth 5.0. Some say thy don’t have problems with it.

  • i am also trying to connect Aukey LL earbuds to my Equinox 800. Connect instantly to my 600. Did Factory reset on 800, still no luck.
    Have you had any luck?

  • I have the same problem and haven’t been able to find a pair of APTX-LL ear buds that will pair with my 600. I have tried two pairs and had to send them back to Amazon. I’m looking at a bluetooth transmitter that will plug into the headphone jack on the 600. It is not the best solution but may work.
