I have been testing some wireless Bone conduction Headphones with the Legend Bluetooth wireless connection and with the Garrett's 24K
For anyone that does not know what bone conduction headphones are rather then go over your ears or in your ears like earbuds they set by your ears on a bone kind of on your jaw bone just in front of your ears, they leave your ears open so you can hear things that are going on around you while still being able to hear your detector.
The brand I have been testing are made by a company called Inductivv,I have to say these have been working great for me, I use them with the Legend and the Garrett 24K, with the 24K i had to add a wireless transmitter which the headphones connect to, The tones and threshold come through nice and clear through these bone conduction headphones, the volume on the bone conduction headphones works off the volume control on the detector, I have had no issues with being able to hear targets through these the targets are nice and clear, I also have had no issues with lag on target response they seem to be just a great set of alternative headphones when you want to be able to hear targets and hear what is going on around you while detecting
I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants an alternative headphone for your detector,I have severe tinnitus in both ears with four different sounds going 24/7 in both ears with these bone conduction headphones they help when detecting to lessen the affects of the tinnitus

Thanks for that information, could be quite useful to those of us who are hearing impaired to some degree. I even used an amplified stethoscope on the cardiac unit and the ER. That was like bionic hearing! I find my Legend headphones not only a big aid, along with the vibration mode, but at times a really good way to avoid the inquisitive. LOL

I have to be aware of my surroundings and with over the ear headphones I cannot, my wife goes out with me when I detect she suffers from severe Dementia so I have to keep aware of what she is doing as well as keep aware of what my detectors are telling me, the Bone conduction headphones I posted about helps me to be aware of my wife as well as my detecting

Sounds like a God send for you. We'll keep you both in our prayers for safe and successful detecting. Are those also waterproof?

I have a pair of Shockz, I got for the same reason, need to hear so I don't get surprised by a bear. I haven't tried them detecting yet, not sure what the lag will be with the Equinox.

That's great they are just what you need. For divers they are the trick for they let you hear past the noise of the bubbles. I remember tearing a set a part (single sided) that came with the Garrett PI's just to see what made them tick..

I made several for hunters/divers several years ago. Most were the singles. Basically all they are is one side of water proof head phones, Very easy to make if your crafty....... I tried them several years ago water hunting but could never adjust to the level of audio of faint targets that I needed. When the D2 came out I bought the set they offered for water hunters, double sided. Still shy of what I needed.

Got the severe tinnitus also, seems I don't pay any attention to it until I think about it. Sounds almost like this..but a little higher pitch..
