    Earbuds for the nox

    Ok guys we have a thread already for headphones, but what about ear buds, who is using what?
    I'm considering virtue wireless v4.1 noise cancel ip7 rated as seen on Amazon.
    Let the answers flood in as my 2 600s will be here next week.

    I would be interested to see if there is any audible difference in lag between the APTX (like above) and APTX LL. I know the specs say up to a 100ms difference in lag between the two, but what does reality say. Have not been able to find any APTX LL waterproof earbuds.

    I suppose that one downfall with earbuds vs headphones is that when you get stopped on the beach every 50 feet to be harassed, oops, I mean asked, what have you found, what's the best thing you found, someone will try and have a full blown conversation with you, not seeing the earbuds, but thinking about it, headphones don't stop this either

    Good question. I have not found any APT X LL earbuds period only full blown APT X LL headphones. I have picked up APT X earbuds but have not paired them up because I am still learning the machine and will fool around with the audio options later. For weather and water I use the WM08 module protected against water and a set of waterproof or weatherproof wired earbuds or headphones.

    It must be a happy coincidence but whenever I have encountered those folks no matter at what point I see them in the hunt, it just so happens that "I haven't found anything interesting" so it is always a very short conversation.

    I've been in and out of the hobby since 2001 and have never found anything interesting, not in the UK. Not in Canada, I can't even say the best find was the wife as she got me into it, but I don't live too far from oak island now so maybe I can beet Gary Drayton to finding the treasure, if it exists.

    Not LL but I will probably give these a try when the 800 arrives. Worth a shot

    I've got these but have not used them with the Equinox yet to see if the lag is tolerable.

    These are IPX 5 rated waterproof

    I am now using the $99 Sennheiser CX 6.00 earbuds (APTX Low Latency), and find I do prefer them to headphones. I can now wear any hat I like

    I know some find regular APTX earbuds (not low latency) acceptable; but I would advise paying extra for the LL. I tried a non-LL pair and, while they worked, I found the lag noticeable, especially on faster swings. Swinging back and forth over an object, the sound would bracket the object rather than being on top of it. Not terrible but not ideal.

    How do the Sennheiser's sound ? I am looking for a set to use on my EQ600 and for music ? Do they compare to decent wired set ?

    Thanks

    I noticed on the specs they only get about 6 hours of battery life. Are you finding them giving out on all-day hunts?
