    AT Pro headphones went belly up!

    Just recently, my Master Sound headphones for the AT Pro went out on me. They were plugged into the machine but the only sound that came out was from the machine itself, not the headphones. I tested with another set and those headphones worked as they should. I contacted Garrett and after running the serial number to my machine, they informed me that the warranty had run out and there was nothing I could do other than purchase a new set. The machine I purchased was a 2014 edition.
    I had always heard that the Garrett customer service was amazing and very helpful and I suppose I was hoping for some sort of replacement from Garrett but that didn't happen. Technically, they weren't required to do anything so I can't fault them.

    Moving forward, I need a new set of headphones....and it seems the z-link setup would be nice but seems very expensive for all of it.

    What Garrett or aftermarket headphones would you suggest??

    Thanks!!

    I've had some luck taking them apart and fixing the broken connections. The wires are tiny. Cheap headphones for sure. I also bought a used pair off ebay for really reasonable $.

    You will need a different adapter but they have them.

    Garrett Easy Stow Headphones for around $22 on amazon. There're lighter weight and sound very good.

    A couple years ago my ATPro headphones started acting up, cutting in and out. I took the muff apart on the side where the wires go in. One of the wires had broken at the solder joint. I soldered the broken wire and they were fine for a while. Then they were acting up again, checked the wires and they looked fine. I think a wire may have broken inside the cord this time, so I bought a different pair.

    I put the 1/4" Jack adapter on my machine to use my Gray Ghost headphones. They sound a little different than the Garrett but are much cleaner sounding.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    The Grey Ghost work very well with the AT Pro/Gold. You will need the adapter to use 1/4" headphones.
