    I have a Garrett AT Gold and want to get a better set of headphones. Can anyone recommend a set in the $100 range?

    Have you tried the Garrett® Submersible Headphones PN: 2202100.....$99.95? I actually went down in price to the Garrett® TreasureSound™ Headphones PN: 1612500..... $19.95. They are lighter and easier to use in the hot sun on a beach or on windy days.

    Gary I have the Garrett headphones that came with it. I am looking to upgrade to something with better sound on the advice of Kevin Hoagland. He mentioned in his seminar that getting a higher quality set of headphones can help you hear the small differences in sound better. SO I am budgeting around $100 to $150 to get them this year. I want to do some Fall/Early Winter metal detecting out west this year.

    Kevin is 100% right about the headphones, however since I have a low end detector, an ACE 250, I am probably not missing much anyway. I spent less on my detector ($100 used excellent condition) than you are budgeting for headphones. If I can move up to an AT Gold then I too will get the heavier, uncomfortable and more expensive but very sensitive headphones to compliment the detector. Please keep us informed as to what you decide to buy. I may want to follow in your footsteps.

    I recently purchased the DectorPro Gray Ghost Amphibian headphones for $150 on Amazon with free shipping. They work great for me and they are also designed for underwater use, so killing two birds with one stone. Others may have a differing opinion as my hearing is not the best, but I'm happy with the purchase. Just my two cents. Good luck and wish you the best!

    I have been using the Sun Ray Pro Gold headphones down here in Arizona for a few years and they work pretty good.

    One of the sound cups stopped working a few months ago but they have a lifetime warranty. I sent them back to the supplier and for about $12 plus the cost of shipping he fixed them for me and mailed them back. They work fine now.

    Yes I also have a pair of Sunray also and they work great. if someone buying headphones just make sure you match the impedance rating to your detector so you get the maximum transfer of power to the headphones.

    My original headphones were the original Grey Ghost. Cost about $70.00 and are durable as hell and EXCELLENT headphones. Only reason I upgraded to the sunray pro gold is the earpads on the grey ghost are vinyl and get sweaty and uncomfortable in the heat. These Sunrays are very soft leather and very comfortable in hot or cold weather but I paid about twice as much for them.


    Either brand are about the best md headphones out there. Best bet for price is to call one of the independent sponsors on websites and talk to them. BBH is very helpful

    Grey Ghost headphones are the way to go as long as you don't get them wet.  The new Amphibians are good if you're on the beach.  Cariboo
