    Miccus SR-71 Stealth Low Latency headphones work great on my 600 and last longer than your earbuds. I just got some Q12 PLUS

One other thing I don't like about the Nox is that it is top heavy when it's put down. Given the rocky shore where I dig right now it constantly flops to the side hitting the vitals on the rocks I'm digging in if I forget to lay it on it's side to begin with. Very excited that you are speaking my language! Gotta check out your other videos now. Thanks!!!

    Hey, I'm just as excited to hear from someone who gets it! The 600 has some little quirks, but what it can do on the pounded sites makes up for it. The shorelines do cause some issues in regards to falsing, and noise cancelling often takes care of that. It was never an issue with my etrac, but that's like comparing apples to oranges. Totally different animal. I look forward to hearing any tips and tricks that you might come across when hunting these sites with the 600. We can share some of those as the year goes on. I'll add you as a friend. Keep in touch!

    Watched a few of your youtube videos, looks identical to the places I'm hunting. I'm sure we live pretty close to one another. I'm not sure if I'm getting too much falsing because when I dig a signal there is something there. Maybe not what I thought, but there is something. (if you mean falsing as nothing there) I do have to balance the machine often because of the freshwater streams and springs running into the salt areas and the high mineral areas I run into. Plus adjusting the sensitivity pretty regularly. I guess there's a few ways to skin a cat regarding these "beaches". I'm stoked for warmer weather and getting the 800 into the woods. Just got it in Dec. and haven't been able really do that yet. Cheers.

    If you have to GB constantly, just put it in tracking mode. There really is no downside to doing that and it works well.
