    Heard about the happy people who no longer have to wear a big, heavy, hot in the summer pair of wired headphones.....I never thought too much about it as they are the only type I have used since the early 1970's. Kept on using them.
    Recently I also converted a wireless gaming headset to make it usable with my AKA Berkut. Along with working great, there was a sense of nakedness not being directly connected to the metal detector. Wow, this is great......should have went this route long ago.

    Received from Deteknix a pair of their wireless headphones to test out. One of our club members purchased a set a number of months ago and he loves them. This was a good chance for me to actually see what I thought about them.

    First thing noticed, when opening the box is the headphones and all accessories come in a neat zippered hard case. Really makes for an excellent place to store everything when not in use and keep it all safe, in one place.

    The headphones themselves are on the small size, like those young people walking around listening to an MP3 player. Super lightweight, fit snug and comfortable around the head
    without the bulky feel of full size headphones.

    The transmitter is very small, flat and compact. You will find on the bottom of the transmitter a very nice feature, the bottom is flat with a concave section right down the length of its center.
    Good thinking on the designers part..... This allows the transmitter to be mounted anywhere along the length of any round tube handle section, middle rod without sliding right or left and then falling off.

    You also get two USB charger cables, one for the TX and one for the RX (headphones), a USB wall charger, 1/8" to 1/4" phono jack adapter. Charging is as easy as it can get.............

    One thing you hear about when trying wireless headphones with a detector is lag or signal delay. The time it takes for the signal to be transmitted from the TX to the headphones when the detector detects a target. Hard to find a pair of wireless without some lag. Was ready to give the Deteknix set a whirl on a number of detectors I have.

    The results I came up with:
    ** Did not notice any lag
    ** Audio was crisp and clean, matched very closely to what the detector sounded like thru the detectors speaker
    ** Adjustable volume control for each ear
    ** I like them!!

    Not much more to say about them, except if you want to go wireless, give these a try.

    If they work on the Berkut, they will work on all AKA's.

    Plus for those that already have headphones but want to go wireless. Deteknix has another option.

    A chap calling himself pondguru on YouTube done a video showing theses working on an etrac. He experienced a quarter to half a second delay depending on swing speed. Had to slow things right down to pinpoint. I just typed in on YouTube ' Pondguru testing wireless headphones'. I would of put a link up but Im having difficulties with paste at present.

    What this guy is saying is that its good, but as you swing over target there is a quarter of a second delay and that you need to really slow your swing down to pinpoint properly. There is in the video a section that let's you hear the lag by going a bit to fast.

    In order to understand what lags mean, test wireless set on several targets located close one to another

    Have you tried nail coin nail coin nail so the machine has to recover from one signal before starting to process the next.

    Maybe the etrac in the video has a slow response time which i think etrac's in general do and just maybe it gets magnified using this set up.
