I have a 5000 and use a little speaker wired correctly so the internal booster works..... I run the threshold at about 11 o'clock and can hear the hum fine.........my question is what do you experienced people do ?? Without a rooster booster or similar would you rely on the internal amplifier or use headphones ??

G'day T.H.F,

I only use the in ear phones as I find the ear muff type too hot and also they tend to slip off my head when I bend over to dig targets. The ones I am using now are the sennheiser ones they are very clear and you can really hear those faint sounds.  Speakers would be very handy when you are showing someone how to detect and also if you are doing a video of your detecting adventures.  Here is some links to the sennheiser phones. Hope this helps.

I have to use headphones as I am deaf in my right ear, and SDC speaker location is no good for me.  So I favour Sennheiser in ear ones for summer via Nenad adapter and supplied Koss for winter.

Hi Paddywack
Not a bad price..
I have  brought cheapies in the past..
Still have them, the sound quality just isn't the same. Crying or Very sad
 
I go for the Sony ones, is that what brand you brought?
The Sony ones I brought were $19 but that was back two years ago.. 
I also like the in ear ones that are used with iPods

Thanks Pablop
I thought I had put the right link up Crying or Very sad I think I am tired Sleep

I can't believe they are still out of stock!
Bugger.. I have had my eye out for them for a while.
But still waiting on some feed back, 
I wanted to know if there was a delay in the sound when they go over a target?
Back to the headphones?

I feel the need to apologize for my above posting, and should of been more informative & helpful

Just for those who are into buying in ear head phones and what to look for

sensitivity/ 107-120db -the higher (db) the louder speakers will be. 

Frequency/response 0-22,0000 Hz - the better the range more different high & low tones.

for example 12-22,000 Hz will operate in slight higher tone range.

 and         0-20,000 Hz will operate in slight lower tone range.


Hope this is more helpful

Ha! I wonder how many retirement bricks I've missed with my El cheapo's?

Maybe I'll plug the sennheiser cx880's in this weekend and walk over some old spots..

For anyone who may be interested, the Sony ones that Jen provided a Dick Smith link for earlier in this thread are on special at the moment at DS. $15.00 for two sets.  Surprised

Could not pass them up as cheap insurance I thought.

Gday Mike ,
Just wondering if you are using the PMX685 with your 7000 ?

If so - are they ok.....?

G'day Anthony,

I have only tried them once and I went back to the WM 12 wireless module speaker. I will probably give them another go again, but I feel that the inbuilt speaker is working ok for me for the time being. Young Mick is using his and he seems fine with them.

Cheers.

Mike.
