    The kicker.... they used a CTX connector on the coil.

    Guys, just don't ruin your warranty with "fixes".

    Is that an o-ring down in the opening? It looks like it.

    It's not, i thought that too at first. No o-rings period. Only seal is that rubber washer, but supposedly the inside of the connector is sealed, so water can't get into the unit even with the headphones are unplugged. Not sure if I believe that, but salt water would probably damage the connector pins anyway.

    I hope Minelab has a quick and easy fix for the adaptor... Not crazy about the connector on the back of the unit either. Universal headphone adaptor,.. waterproof..
    I would have paid a few extra bucks if the design was like the CTX.. all enclosed cable.... just saying... Maybe it will be the Equinox 1000....

    Not worried about detector warranty as I am only modifying the headphone cable that screws into it

    I'll be silicone gluing mine in, no problem. The machine looks fantastic so I'm willing to accept a few challenges in exchange.

    If a hole coming in that speaker cone It will be flooded. Not likely but all things wear out.

    BTW, I actually got my machine and I was wrong on this there definitely IS an o-ring in that connector.... it's really hard to see because it's small and well tucked away but it's there. No need to monkey with this connector we are good to go.
