    My Black Widows and Rattler (both DeterctrPro) have noise limiter circuits that clip the very loud signals.

    Well, yeah, volume adjustment would be a nice feature, on the phones and/or your machine.
    But, there seems to be no loss of hearing the outside noises, and still hold on a conversation,
    without having to set aside one or both, in order to do so. It really feels like you are not wearing
    headphones at all...!
    I use another pair with my computer at home, so my rock and roll music doesn't bother my wife!

    No such thing as too much rock and roll.
    My hearing loss was definitely military-related, then several decades more of
    Too-Much-Rock-and-Roll
    plus other unmentionable bad stuff happened to me..., where I think I've earned my hearing loss...!
    Eh?
    Besides, headphones, helps save on batteries, too!

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    I have had mild Tinnitus since 24 yrs of age. 2 months ago I hunted with the G2+ with headphones about wide open. When I took headphones off my ears were ringing wide open. Did not sleep for a week and I have since lost 20 lbs. The ringing has come down some but I think eating sugar raises it. I'm type 2. Started taking Magnesium at night and finally sleeping better. Have read where lots of people in music industry have it too from wearing headphones. I'm probably going to start hunting without headphones. 2 of my machines have volume control but the At Pro does not. May sell it. Protect your ears. Tinnitus can drive you crazy.
