    That's a good plan. You will like the Deteknix phones, and you can't beat the price...the best of both worlds.

    Indeed it does. And it gets louder if I scroll up. Now, I am usually out in the middle of the woods and the only background noise is the wind blowing through the trees. So unless I am in a howling wind, a setting of "1" is sufficiently loud enough for me.

    How do you guys like the WS4's?
    I didn't think I would like the way they sit on the back part of the head. Look odd but then again, I have never tried them.
    I think the WS4 has several subtle and not so subtle advantages vs. the WS5's

    1) The backphones are light and inexpensive should they break since the WS4 puck (the expensive part) is detachable, unlike the control unit on the WS5 - if the WS5 phones break, you are sending the whole thing back in for repair and have lost the secondary control unit. Backphones are good for the beach and hot conditions. Surprisingly good sound for what they are.

    2) The WS4 puck is considered highly water resistant, some even say waterproof (though I would not push it with underwater detecting, but if you take an occasional accidental dunk, probably not a problem and they definitely can handle a downpour without a problem). My understanding is that the WS5's are not water resistant.

    3) The WS4 puck can be attached to a number of third party over the ear phones to give WS5 like functionality and keep your ears warm or keep out distracting outside noise. My (new) favorite third party cans for the WS4 are the Deteknix which are also weatherproof, sound good, comfortable, relatively inexpensive compared to its direct competitors (the Vance Phones and the Grey Ghosts), and have a hardwired jack that enables them to be used in a wired configuration if necessary.

    4) The detachable nature of the WS4 puck also allows it to be attached to a number of XP accessory mounts such as on the pole stem, a watch like band, or a forearm/bicep pouch and there is a headphone adapter attachment you can purchase separately for about $20US such that you can plug in your favorite wired phones to the WS4 control module, if desired.

    This is an old thread, but '1' on the volume on my WS4 is painfully loud. If '0' was just a tad louder it would be just about perfect. There seems to be a defect in some of the WS4 pucks. I have a friend coming into town next month to do some detecting with me and he's bringing his XP Deus. We are going to compare them side by on the volume. I'll let y'all know the results.

    I'd be interested to see how they compare. Funny, today for the first time in years, I raised the volume on my WS4's from 1 to 2. The site I was at was covered with an inch or two of crunchy oak and beach leaves. I had to turn it back down to 1 once I hit cleaner ground.

    Never looked at a volume number, just press the volume up or down button until pleasant to use.
