    Have high freq hearing loss? Try this!


    Here is a little trick I learned from Kevin Hoagland the rep from Minelab in a recent seminar held at the GPAA gold show in Dayton Ohio.

    Believe it or not, some people do not hear certain frequencies emitted by their metal detector and are missing out on valuable finds!

    If you are not hearing the higher frequency sounds emitted from your MD you can adjust the pitch on this device to a lower frequency that you can hear just by adding more bass and less treble to the signal!

    This works like a charm even if you have perfect hearing. I experimented with this device and was able to easily hear even the faintest signals due to the 10db volume gain.

    With it you can easily fine tune the sound to fit your personal hearing needs.
    It is a 3 band equalizer that fits between your detector and your headphones. I ordered
    mine from the koss.com website for $19.95

    With a 10dB boost or -10dB cut range of level, the EQ50 features a 3-band equalizer that allows for convenient and individual bass, midrange and treble adjustment, for a customized listening experience.

    Power output is greater than 20mW per channel, providing clean undistorted output into your favorite stereophones. Ergonomically designed for easy handling, a rotary volume control and on/off switch are placed for convenient usage.

    Hope this helps.

    Finally a product just for me, hard hearing and the upper ranges too (coincidentally a woman's frequency range) sorry ladies, we men don't always just have selective hearing as we are told so often....

    Re: Have high freq hearing loss? Try this!

    Mine arrived and I really can't tell too much difference. I guess I was expecting a bit too much?Anyway, I fond out you need some kind of connector to put it inline on my Safari as all the plugs are 1/4". Radio Shack has them cheap! Monty

    I keep forgetting to take it out with me and haven't had much time to evaluate it in the field. Dumb old me, I'll try to remember next time. M nty

    Thank you Buddy!
    I will try one on my Quattro.
    I have high frequency hearing loss from too many hour with a router and other shop tools.

    Oh, Planet,
    My wife doesn't yell at me very often, so I really can't blame her.

    Monty,
    Was wondering the other day how you were getting along with the Safari. Let me know. Myself, I have been having a great year so far with the Quattro.

    Best of Luck all,
    Mark
