    Has anyone modified the Whites Dual Field headphones?

    I have a Whites Dual Field and several other Whites UW machines, and the headphones work fine, but they are really not good and tight on the Dual Field. They sometimes get flipped around, but mainly they just move and do not get real tight. I was thinking buy some sound reducing (chain saw) ear muffs, and use the head band and brackets and fabricate it to the head phones.

    By just replacing the ear pads with some gel ones will make a huge difference in both comfort & fit, keeping outside noise & wind out and better hearing of tones. Those ones on there now have no meat to them, these are 1" thick and are easy to install with glue. Have them on my ExCal and DF.

    OBN's peltor headphone mod is easy to do on the Dual Field and the older Surfmaster PI, very little sanding is necessary on the internal earcup and the transducer pads require little trimming. The how-to video is on youtube, under Joe Beechnut, "Minelab Excalibur Headphone Peltor 105 Mod".

    The noise reduction is incredible, as is the ear comfort.

    Thanks OBN! Good video, completely descriptive, my wife and I watched it last night. This is exactly what I was wanting to do, just wondered if anyone had. I am heading to Lowe’s in just a bit.
