Using Bluetooth headphones (no built-in Bluetooth detector)

Hello there!

Following the question that I asked in this thread:

Wireless headphones on ACE 300?

I am happy to say that this issue has been resolved for very little budget.
My detector is a Garrett ACE 300i, obviously it does not have the possibility of being used with Bluetooth headphones. I feel the cable uncomfortable to when digging.
So I was researching for a cheap way to do it without having to buy Garrett's kit (GARRETT MS-3 Z-LYNK WIRELESS KIT) which costs around $200.
And this is the way I found:
I have only purchased two very cheap items:
- Transmitter and receiver bluetooth adapter. For about 6$
(sorry, the link is in Spanish)

- Adapter from jack to mini jack, with half a meter of wire. (Amazon) To be able to hold the device on the detector bar. Around $10

And finally I added a ferrite to the wire to prevent interferences.
It just works. I can now use the detector with any Bluetooth headphones.
I hope it can be of use to someone in need.
(sorry for my english) :-)

Edit: This would be the result in case of using a straight adapter, probably a less bulky option.
