    I have an adapter I bought at Ace Hardware for about $4 that works just fine. I have a small problem with the stock head phones because their tone is a little on the high pitch side ... I've lost that part of my hearing or at least it is so low volume that makes it very hard to hear. If I do use headphones with the Monster it is my Sun Rays.

    Nope. just thought you (Mike F) might be one of the lucky ones that found an adapter that worked correctly with the Gold Monster. I just got back from Ace with the same adapter and yes my Sunray Pro's work very nice with it...But also the detectors external speaker stays on. So now you have three speakers drawing off the battery.  :2mo5pow:

    I'll probably just re-wire my headphones similar to what  "AlwaysDirty" did when I have the time. Not interested in the more expensive solution that was put out there. Just sayin.

    no different from using the stock minelab headphones

    True, it just gives me another pair if the Minelab ones break.  I would think before  long some one will come up with an adapter that will work with our favorite headsets. Not gonna hold my breath though.  :idunno:

    Have you found a 1/4" female to 1/8" (3.5mm) adapter that will actually work with the GM1000?

    I bought an adapter and haven't tried it until now. Been using the stock phones that come with the Goldmonster.  My chinese $5.44 adapter does not work just as many have cited before. Tried the adapter with my "Sun Ray Pro's" and it's a no go. 

    I do have a cheap pair of panasonic rp-ht227 headphones with an inline volume control. No individual ear controls, but it works fine and shuts off the external speaker.

    I guess this would be an opportunity for Minelab or an aftermarket guru to come up with a quality solution. Who knows, if I get bored enough I just might do some electrical experimenting but I'm not there yet. Now I need to get out a find another piece of yellar to make up for my chinese investment. 

    Bottom line....the Goldmonster is a bloodhound on dinks.  :head:

    stock headphones?

    Jesse, I haven't had any issues with the stock headphones so far. Guess it all depends one one's hearing and comfort desires. I have purchased an adapter to where as I can use my other headsets with the 1/4" plug if I wanted to go that route. Lots of choices out there.  

  5. That small double D on my Goldmaster II will find the really small pieces...after that I might as well get out my drywasher if I really want the fly poo. I can shovel faster than isolate little targets in the scoop. :4chsmu1:
