    Garrett AT Pro headphones completely dead all of a sudden

    Had my AT pro for about 2 months, everything has been working fine. Did some detecting in the yard, set unit down to dig a target, when I put the headset back on and powered up the unit, no audio was coming out of the headphones. Restart, reset, nothing. Twisted volume Knobs, nothing. Unplugged headphones, audio coming out of speaker fine. Replugged headphones, making sure to seat tightly, nothing.

    Anyone experience anything like this before? I was thinking of purchasing a wireless set, but I’m worried the issue could be on the detector’s input plug.

    Headphones are the Garrett brand MS-2's that come with the current AT Pro.

    The original hpís that come with the AT Pro are garbage. Mine lasted about the same time.

    Ok, so you had a pair of MS-2's that broke and replacing them fixed the problem? Meaning it wasn't a problem with the connection on the metal detector house? Thanks for the reply.

    Is there anyone else close by that could let you try theirs? I have a set that you could try if you are close to East Houston.

    I do recommend going with the Garrett Z-Lynk system though. I bought the set with the pinpointer so you hear both the detector and pointer in the phones. It sure is nice not having to take them off when you want to set the detector down. Not having to juggle the cord is nice too.

    Sorry I didnít no Ms 2ís are newer hpís. I bought my AT pro almost ten yrs ago so they werenít the ms 2ís that came with it then. I bought the blue water proof ones right after mine broke and Iíve had no problems for almost ten yrs using them. They maybe plain hpís with no volume control and some guys say they are too loud for land use but I love them. If they ever die I may try a pair of Grey Ghost or just buy another blue pair.

    Yeah I bought the Zlynk package last night, which I was wanting to do eventually anyways, Iím just worried about the possibility that the issue is with the detector side of the headphone connection. The speaker works fine and the speaker does shut off when the headphones are plugged in, so it recognizes the headphones as being plugged in. Iím hoping thatís a good sign itís the headset?

    Even if it is in the plug that should be a cheap repair. I would lean toward a problem in the cable though. It gets pulled around a lot in use. I was always careful of mine and it still got kinked.

    Same thing happened to me this year. I still bought another set of MS-2 as back up but I couldnít be happier with the MS-3 Z-Lynk.
