    I was a little disappointed that Grey Ghosts weren't available for the Simplex, but when emailed, D.P. said that they are considering it. My guess is that they are waiting to see sales numbers of this particular machine, to see if numbers justify. Fair enough. I was willing to pay more to get a superior set of water phones.

    Does the simplex have a vibrate feature? Would this be enough if you hunted with it engaged in water, and not need headphones at all? I'm thinking of buying one, and want the wireless headphones, and I dont want to have to buy the water phones if at all possible.

    Once you have been wireless you never want to go back!

    I can see your point, particularly as there is also the display to give extra info on the find. However, I'm used to hearing tones and sound nuances, clean/scruff sounds, strong/weak depth etc. It seems that there are different ways to hunt with this machine than I am used to though. I feel that the technology is less intimidating for me by detecting in the same general manner as my other machines. And I want as much info from a potential target as possible. I went with the Nokta water phones, which stay on in or out of water. The only thing I have to hassle with is charging the machine itself now.

    If I get one, and I probably will, this will be my 9th machine, although I don't own that many now, and my first water detector. You can't beat the price point with the features it has. I think I will just go with the wireless headphones and use the vibrating feature when submerged in water without any headphones. And, if this doesn't satisfy me, I can always get the wp headphones later.

    Thanks for all the info.

    Probably just comes down to individual wants/needs? I can definitely see the benefits of wireless. I wear glasses and I've muttered a naughty word more than once, when my headphone cord yanked the phones and my glasses in brushy spots. Now I just take the phones off the machine. My deciding factors where: Using machine in water, in city parks, occasionally in worked farm fields. And the machines setup/technology is slightly foreign, or atleast different, and maybe 15% intimidating to me. I fired it up once just prior to major freeze up around here, and it looks pretty basic, just different. Years back I had a terrible time going from a Garrett ACE 250 straight to a Tesoro Tejon. That was tough for me. But the Simplex should be a fairly quick learn.
