The Chinese-made Miccus SR-71 are considerably cheaper than those suggested by Minelab. And above all, these Chinese headphones work perfectly on the Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800 machines.

  • 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. :-)
