Having now been treasure hunting now for over 25 years, I can’t imagine how many sets of headphones I have gone through. Back then, there were really no companies producing “detecting” headsets like there are today. So, many of us made do with whatever stereo type headphones that we could actually get to work on a metal detector. Of course headphones made for listening to the stereo at home couldn’t handle the riggers of serious treasure hunting.
Nowadays, the metal detectorist has a wide array of headphone choices available with fancy names and price ranges that can go over $140.00….or close to the cost of a back-up detector! Thus the casual coinshooter may get along fine and enjoy a low priced pair, and this is great. But, someone like a relic or nugget hunter using headphones usually “thrown in” with a new detector purchase will be disappointed as these headsets rarely survive getting pushed and pulled in the field.
